Maybe try looking on the side of the phone, there is a little silver button that puts it on silent ringing for meetings etc

I started upgrading my 3G phone with latest upgrades but after restoring to copmpanys setting it is not being reactivated some time sau thay there in no sim although I have changed the sim after seeing...

Is the sim card installed belongs to the wireless company that the iPhone is locked to, or is the iPhone sim free?
If not, try contacting the company that the iPhone is locked to to try to unlock the iPhone to sim free, or get a sim that belongs to the company.

My iPhone stop ringing. It only vibrares. Also the keyboard does not sounds. However I can listen to the radio . What can I do? Thanks a lot. Dolores

Chances are, you turned ON the Silent switch on the side of the iPhone. You'll know that it's turned ON if you see a little red dot (for iPhone 3G & 3GS) or a red line (for iPhone 4). To locate it, refer to the image below: 16aae05.jpg

My iphone 3g is disabled dew to pass coad my original usb went bad i have an after market usb but it will onily charge the phone to fix it i need to conect to itunes which im unable is there a over ride...


unfortunately no way to over ride the handset, itunes is the only way you can reactivate your iphone, your best bets is if you still have original usb wire and have warrenty with your phone then give apple a ring they will send you out a new cable in exchange for the old one (as long as your in warrenty) or if not see if you can get one online. If no see if a pal has one you can lend and use to reactivate phone and update.

Hope this helps

My iphone doesn't ring or vibrate, but does with earplugs on.

I would try a system restore, plug your iPhone into iTunes and click restore, it will delete everything but once its done it will restore it to when your last sync was.

IPhone: First call not connecting

Go to your settings, and then to safari, and clear the cache, and all history, and then do a master reset by holding down the home button, and power button until the apple logo appears. Let me know how that goes.

My iphone 3g won't stop toggling from ring to vibrate when it is switch to ring. any way to fix?

The best suggestion would be to try to restore your iPhone from a backup and see if that helps since the silent switch on the side is nothing more then a soft switch and doesn't actually turn any physical devices off.

Failing that you could try a recovery mode. Instructions here .

Lastly, if all else fails it could be the switch itself is shorted out or malfunctioning. This can be fixed quite easily by a qualified iPhone repair person.
