Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

My iphone won't ring with incoming calls. I have checked to make sure the ringer is on and if I set the ring tone, it plays the tone so I know the speaker is working. Any fixes?

The only thing i would check is the switch on the side. Make sure its not sticking, or accidentally switched it... If its messed up, im sure Apple would replace yours! :)

Will not ring on incoming calls


On the top left edge of the iPhone there is a small lever. It is just above the volume up and down controls. Flick it back towards the screen of the phone. This is the 'ringer off' switch. You will get a display on the screen telling you whether you are ringer on, or ringer off.

Other possibility is that the Settings/Do not Disturb setting is activated.

My iphone 4 only vibrates, and does not ring on incoming calls.


The iPhone, along with many other phones, has two speakers. The first is the on ear speaker and the second is the speaker at the bottom for playing music and ringtones. The speaker at the bottom could be broken so to check this, just try and use your headphones to play music. If that doesn't work either then it must be a setting on the phone so in that case just have a bit of a play with the sound settings.

My iPhone incoming calls ring but do not vibrate, but all other notifications vibrate correctly.


Strange. I would try resetting your iPhone. Hold down the home and power buttons until it powers off. It should start up automatically but if not just press the power button. This has worked for me in the past when my iPhone has acted strangely.
Don't worry about a reset or hard reboot. You won't lose any data or settings.

Uniden Model EX 14560 Ringer off How to put ringer on


Here some solutions for your problem + a link to the user manual.

**Selecting the Ring Tone and Volume
Your phone has five different ringer tone/volume combinations you can choose from.
To select the ringer:
1) With the phone in standby, press [vol/ / ] or [vol/ / ].
2) The phone will sound the different ring tones at different volumes. To turn the ringer
off, select RINGER OFF.
3) When the phone sounds the ring tone and volume you wish to use, press [end].


**Temporarily Mute Ringer
If the handset is off the base while an incoming call is ringing, simply press [end] to mute
the incoming ring. The ringer will sound with the next incoming call.
Note: You can only mute the handset ringer if the handset is off the base when the phone starts
ringing.

I have a Panasonic Keyphone Model: KX-T7750, having problem with alert of intercom/incoming calls. No ring tone but with flash light and intercom light on. May I know how to fix this. Thank you!


Calls are signalled in two ways. First, check the Ringer switch on the left side of the phone. It's a 3 position switch OFF/LO/HI. If the outside lines are blinking the MESSAGE light, then the ringer is probably turned off. If your intercom calls are toning but not ringing, you may have the AUTO ANS light lit. Press it until it's off and intercom calls will either start ringing or send an audible tone.
If it tones, then you have a programming problem where intercom calls are set to tone instead of ring. That's corrected in system programming.

How do I increase my ring tone volume on my Moto Razor .?


You can set the length of your incoming ring to in the Call forwarding portion of the phone. Usually, it is set to 25 seconds. It can go as high as 30 seconds. To set the ringer to be longer or shorter, it goes by 5,10,15,... set of 5 increments. up to 30.
I would also recommend to use a factory set ringtone, set the profile to LOUD or OUTDOORS. With vibrate option on. Some downloaded ringtones don't play as loud.
