iPhone not ringing on incoming calls or text messages

Issue

iPhone not playing any notification sounds. iPhone not ringing when receiving calls or receiving text messages. No sound coming from iPhone. Notification sounds muted. iPhone only vibrates but makes no sound. 

Solution

  • On the iPhone, located on the top left corner, there is a "silent" switch. Make sure it is not turned on as shown in the picture below:


  • If the silent switch was already off, you want to make sure the "Do Not Disturb" feature isn't active. To turn it off, go to Settings > Do Not Disturb. Make sure "Manual" and "Scheduled" are off as shown in the picture below.
  • Go to Settings > Sounds and make sure the "ringer and alerts" volume is not muted.


  • If none of these options worked, you can try performing a backup and restore of your iPhone
