My phone doesn't ring on incoming calls. I don't know that it ever has, as I receive so few calls.

The call is announced on screen and vibrate works, but the ringer doesn't sound.

I've checked that it's enabled, the volume is turned up and "Do Not Disturb" isn't enabled.

When I select a different ring tone the selected sample plays OK so the ringer itself works.

Is there something else I have overlooked?

Have you checked the silent switch on the top left side?

When you play music does it play out of the speaker?

Sometimes some lint gets stuck in the headphone jack causing this problem - suggest you plug in and remove several times to see if that helps.

The speaker unit on be replaced on the 4 easily but you need to check out these other potential issues first.

You might call yourself Ugly but your answers are beautiful.

I felt it had to be something simple and it was. That wretched switch.

RING  RING!

Thank you.
