Why isn’t my phone ringing6 min readReading Time: 4 minutes
There could be a number of reasons why your phone isn’t ringing. Maybe you missed a call and the caller didn’t leave a voicemail. Maybe your phone is on silent or vibrate mode. Or maybe you’re out of range or the phone is turned off.
If you’re not sure whether you missed a call, check your phone’s call history. If there’s an entry for a missed call, the number of the caller will be listed next to it. If you don’t see an entry for a missed call, the caller may have hung up before your phone rang.
To check your phone’s silent or vibrate mode, look for a symbol on the screen that indicates whether the sound is turned on or off. Usually, this symbol is a speaker with either a line through it (for silent mode) or a vibrating symbol (for vibrate mode).
If you’re out of range or the phone is turned off, the caller will usually hear a busy signal or the phone will just ring until it goes to voicemail.

How do I get my phone to ring?
There are a few things you can try to get your phone to ring.
First, make sure that your phone is not on silent or vibrate mode. You can check this by looking at the phone’s volume buttons—if they are black, then the phone is on silent mode. To turn off silent mode, press the volume up button.
If your phone is on silent mode, you may also want to try the "Volume Shake" feature. This feature will cause your phone to ring if you shake it a certain way. To turn on Volume Shake, go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Shake to Ring.
If your phone is not on silent mode and Volume Shake is turned on, you may want to try adjusting the ring volume. You can do this by going to Settings > Sounds > Ringtone. From here, you can adjust the ring volume, set a custom ringtone, or choose to have your phone vibrate instead of ring.
Finally, if your phone is not on silent mode and Volume Shake is turned off, and you still can’t get your phone to ring, you may need to check your phone’s settings. To do this, go to Settings > Phone > Call Forwarding. From here, you can check to see if your phone is forwarding calls to another number.
