Goes to voice main on first try on second try rings

According to iPhone " How can set the number of rings on my iPhone before voicemail picks up?
You can set the iPhone to wait longer or shorter than the default 20 seconds before it goes to voicemail when receiving an incoming call. This will result in a different number of rings before the voice messaging system picks up the line and plays your outgoing message. To change the amount of time the iPhone will ring follow these steps:
1. Open the phone app and dial *#61# on the Keypad. Press the Call button.
2. Locate this text on the screen: "Setting Interrogation Succeeded, Voice Call Forwarding, When Unanswered, Forwards to +" and record the 11-digit number after the + symbol.
3. Touch the Dismiss button. Now enter this code on the Keypad: *61*+ followed by the 11-digit Forwards to number recorded in step 2, followed by *11 and *ringtime#. Ringtime is the number of seconds you want your iPhone to ring before voicemail picks up. Your finished code should look something like this:
In the example above the ring time is set to 30 seconds. Press the Call button.
4. You should receive the message: Setting Activation Succeeded. Press Dismiss and next time you receive a call it will ring for the new amount of time before going to voicemail."
According to Apple Tool "having this problem, please try the followings:
  • Make sure that iPhone's Ring/Silent switch is OFF meaning ringer is ON. A bell will flash briefly on the screen when you turn on the ringer.
  • Make sure that the Do Not Disturb setting is not silencing calls (Settings > Do Not Disturb).
  • Make sure that Airplane Mode is OFF (Settings > Airplane Mode).
  • Make sure that your carrier software is up to date (Settings > General > About)."

Iphone 5c will not ring in sleep mode

It could be a couple of issues, but I wanted to make sure of one first. Does this happen at specific times where you state "sleep mode", or anytime the screen is off? If you had a time set for Apples "Do Not Disturb" then you would need to change the time or disable it altogether. If this happens when a little moon icon is in the top near the clock then this is your issue. If this is not the case it could be the ringer switch, try moving it back and forth to ring and silent to test and also if you can replicate the issue while you are using it, plug in head phones to see if audio is working at all. Your issue could be something deeper within the phone if these items or not the case. It is always recommended to backup your iPhone and then do a full restore to see if it is a software issue. My work iPhone 4S has an issue while trying to ring and doesn't even play sounds when needed. In my case it is a hardware issue, but I am going to hold off for the iPhone 6. If it is a hardware issue then it could be covered by Apple's warranty if under one year. On any purchase I highly recommend Apple Care + to cover damage and up default warranty to two years. If you can supply any more details I would be glad to chime in on them.

Phone won't ring in sleep mode

I had the same problem with my iPhone the only way I was able to fix it was to re-flashed the latest 2.2 firmware. Power phone off, power on by holding power and home at same time, hold power for ten seconds and then release still holding home key for another 30 seconds to put phone in DFU mode. Then plug into iTunes it will detect phone in recovery mode and allow you to re-image

İPhone not ringing

you can actually move the button , on the top left hand side of your iphone, over the ringer volume, you will see a red or orange dot, this means the switch has you iphone in silent mode, I was stuck on this, until I found it is a actual switch, look at it closely, you can move it. So where you see the red dot, put your finger on it and move it the opposite way, and I do not mean press the button, I mean, flip the switch on it, then your phone will not be in silent mode anymore,,, this was very annoying, I hope it helps anyone that has the same problem.
