You probably have a corrupt restore. It happened to me after I got a replacement phone.
I had to erase all contents to the phone (this took more than an hour: settings - general - reset - Erase all content and settings). While it was erasing, I removed the old backups from C:\Documents and Settings\<your_user_name>\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

After this I connected the phone to iTunes again, and the problem was gone.
However, all contact information and other notes etc was also gone. Make sure to synchronize condact data , calendars etc with the PC (e.g. outlook) before doing this.

Same problem was with my iphone was also, I have jailbreak my iphone using ziphone, after some time I found this problem in my phone, i have starded using without putting in sleep mode, although it drain out battery very fast almost within 8hrs it need recharge

one fine day i found that it is ringing in sleep mode also I just recollect what I did with my iphone,
Generally, I put my phone on sleep mode manully while re-charging, because during charging it rings even if it on sleep mode,
during that night I have recharged my phone from Power, not from laptop, secondly, when I unpluged Iphone it was pretty cold not hot as it was alway when I unpluged, I kept the phone in sleeping mode and it was receiving call even if remain in sleeping mode for than 2 hrs, during this not missed any call and battery lasted for more than 72 hour.

what I conclude
1. recharging from laptop is not efficiently charging that iphone
2. if iphone is hot it means charging is still going on , even if cell meter show full
3. putting phone into sleep mode manually (not dare to experiment with auto sleep mode


hope this will work for everyone, do let me so, that every iphone lover could have better use of there phone

I have the same problem. I tried the suggestion about reseting the networking, in airplane mode and out of airplane mode did not help me to solve the problem.

Posted on Apr 25, 2008

Found this on another site and it worked well for me -- solved the problem:

1.) Reset the phones network settings
2.) Reboot the phone
3.) Put the phone in airplane mode
4.) Reboot the phone
5.) Take the phone out of airplane mode
6.) reboot the phone.

To reboot the iphone hold down the sleep/wake button, and the home button at the same time for 6 seconds (until the apple logo appears).

My iphone 4 goes straight to voice mail on the first ring how can i change the setting


make sure you do not have the settings set to block mode, people often confuse block mode as being the setting that blocks other devices from piggy backing on their wifi. it actually blocks calls. check the top of the phone for the symbols or icons, if you see one that you dont' understand open settings. and make changes.

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.

How do you turn off sleep mode on iphone 3


What do you mean by that? You put the phone in sleep mode by pressing the power button on the top of the phone. To get it out of the sleep mode you can press the top button again or press the home key.

If you mean how can you stop the screen turning off after a a period of time, go to settings/general/auto-lock and change it to the desired setting.

Hope this helps

My phone will not ring, it is not on any silent modes


If something isn't working right, restarting, force quitting an application, or resetting
iPhone will likely solve the problem.
Restart iPhone: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone. To turn iPhone back on, press and
hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.
If you can't turn off iPhone or if the problem continues, you may need to reset. A reset
should be done only if turning iPhone off and on doesn't resolve the problem.
Force quit an application: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone
for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then press and hold the Home button
until the application quits.
Reset iPhone: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the
same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

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.
cheers!

FA 501apple Iphone....


Being that this question is so old. I'm gonna answer it for those that may face this problem today.

For starters. The dimming of the screen.
The dimming happens under the control of the auto lock of the screen. When it dims that means it's gonna "sleep". However the phone is still 100% functional in Sleep mode.

To change this setting you want to go to Settings, then General, tap Auto Lock, and change it as you wish.

Now to making your caller id show up again.
Go to Settings, then Phone, then tap Show My Caller ID and make sure it's On.

Those are the methods to fixing that problem. If those have been done and the problem still persists, then there's something more wrong with the phone
