    I have searched to no end but not found any concrete answers regarding this. My iPhone 4s will sometimes vibrate but will not ring when receiving calls which leads to me missing a lot of calls. The ring/vibrate switch IS set to ring and the volume is turned all he way up - the ring tone is also set correctly. I have seen other people having the same problem but no resolution. I'm trying a restore now but any suggestions would be very helpful.

    I had the same issue with my 4S, read on these forums that it was the switch above the volume buttons, it should be flicked towards the screen for the phone to be in "non-vibrate mode" It worked for me, hope it helps!

    Did you read his post? The switch is in the correct position for it to ring.

    This. I finished restoring and it worked again after I received the first call. Hopefully that's the end of it

    Good deal. That restore is awesome, and it's a heckuva lot better than the factory reset on the Android. A lot faster and easier...

    The mystery continues....it stopped working again. I removed all custom ringtones just in case and restored the phone again and it seems to be working again. I dock the phone at night in an iHome alarm clock - anyone think this might be causing any problems?

    Stay away from the custom ringtones for now and see if that's it, I highly doubt it's the iHome

    I have found that my Iphone quite ringing as well.
    I found that a few people were having problems with theirs as well after a Skype upodate.
    Once Apple came out with a new update to their software, my iphone rang again.
    It now has happened again and it happened to be just after Skype did an update.
    Not sure if you have skype or not but it tends to be what appears to be the problem with my phone.

    Hold down the Home+On/Off buttons simultaneously, until you see the Apple logo appear. Release and continue to as usual by entering the passcode, if there is one.
    Make sure that the Sound settings are set normally to ring. There you are! It will work.

    Do the following:
    1. On the left side of the screen, flip the switch to the up position.
    2. Press the up volume button until all the bars are displayed
    3. Go to Settings-Notifications-Phone and then still down and select "Ringtone". Tap the ringtone to make sure you hear it. If you do, great. You're done. If not, select another ringtone to test.

    Can you play music on your device? If so, the device itself is not the problem. Are you jailbroken?

    Have the same problem on 4s. I found that if you are connected via bluetooth, the audio does not come via speaker, i.e. No RING. I have an at&t bluetooth phone and if iPhone is connected, not ring. Kill connection and the ring works. Hope this helps.

    Turn off bluetooth and check it.

    Try turning off bluetooth. See if you get a ring. Turn bluetooth back on to connected state and see if on ring condition returns.

    If you're referring to your device vibrating, but not ringing, then check the mute switch on the upper left side of the device. Also, go to Settings - Sounds and make sure that the lever underneath "Ringer and Alerts" is moved from the left to a volume level that's suitable for you. I'm assuming you have an alert tone already set.

    Mine does or did the same thing. I use Magic Jack on my iPhone. Other phone services are too expensive. Anyway I thought that was Magic Jacks fault. My iPad rings with Magic Jack.
