My iPhone's ringtone doesn't work . Help fix it please .

Asked by sandystrachan (4385 points ) October 2nd, 2011

So I have the 3GS , I have two both have exactly the same apps and settings .
Both are Jailbroken and have the same jailbroken apps and tweaks .
For some reason one of the phones won’t ring , The volume is full the side switch is up too .

The thing about that silent switch is , If I shake the phone or jolt it real quick . The phone acts as if I just pushed it down , Shows the animation and vibrates .

Is the phone borked or can Something trigger it to work again .

Is their a diagnostic box/app I could run to see whats up ?

I assume you’ve looked at the settings in “Settings.” It sounds as if it might be a physical problem because of the way it acts when you shake it.

Does the speaker even work? I know my old iPod Touch had the speaker die when it was just over a year old. Considering that the two share much of the same hardware, I suspect that you might have the same issue I did. Try playing music or some game with sound.

Yea speaker works , ALL other tones work apart from ring . :/
Totally confused as to why this happened .

Try a different ringtone, maybe its not in the .caf format this time for some reason. The filesystem also changes sometimes with the IOS, and I havent worked with iphones. Do the default ones work?

the switch is probably broken, replace the switch, you can buy it on ebay or reset the phone to factory settings (lock it) and take it to Apple Store
