I've got my wife's old i-phone 4 (she has upgraded)


and until the other day I was getting a click sound every time I pressed a letter to send a text, but now that has stopped


also when I send / receive texts no sound comes out... I checked under settings / sounds and there are sounds there but nothing comes out of the i-phone


I've also just tried to play a song from my playlist and no sound is coming out..... have I done something wrong or is the speaker stuffed in the i-phone?


Is there something I can try to get it working??




I'm an i-phone novice so any help would be appreciated!

Do the headphones work? Perhaps clean out the headphone jack, it can get full of crap.

Otherwise a factory reset. Failing that I would suspect a hardware issue.

Do you have bluetooth headphones or an Apple TV in the house? It could be that it is sending the audio to one of these instead.

well I just tried phoning my mobile phone from my work landline and the i-phone rang loudly with the selected ring tone, so obviously the speaker is working ok


I checked the 'do not disturb' and that is switched off, so maybe I've done something in the settings?


it's weird....

ok so I tried turning the phone off completely using the on off button and turning it on again - and that has worked.




thanks for the replies

My wife's 4S does something similar at random intervals...just turns itself on silent mode - although nothing we have done actually can take it out of this, except (as you have found) a restart. 


Time to move on from the 4/4S I rekon :)
