2) is your ringer volume on silent

Vibrate is off and it makes no difference whichever combination of ring/vibrate I choose

iphonelaine's avatar

Even when I receive message it only vibrates

Maybe you aren’t as popular as you think….

There’s the buttons on the side. I’d push the top one a bunch of times to make sure your ringer VOLUME is up all the way.

If that doesn’t work, I’d recommend a restore via iTunes. If that doesn’t work. Looks like you’ve earned yourself an appointment at the Apple store.

Have you dropped it? My roommate dropped his and it did the same thing.

osullivanbr had the very same problem last week with his iPhone it turns out the speaker just blew for no reason.

Hopefully this is the solution and you’ll be a bit more fortunate than me. Tell me when you try to change the volume using the buttons on the side does it say headphones volume? If it does it is a common enough problem. The phone simply thinks the the headphones are still plugged in. What you need to do is get your headphones and push them in pull the out a few times really quickly. That sorts the problem nine times out of ten. Often enough this problem is just a little dust in the headphone socket.

Best of luck.

I had this issue with my new iPhone- I took it in to the Apple store and the guy at Apple said that on G3 network often it wont ring. I turned off G3 in network preferences and phone now rings.

So far I am not impressed with G3.
