    My phone ringer and text message alert sound are intermittent. Not just on the iPhone6, but previous iPhone models and previous versions of iOS as well.

    I flip up the switch on the side of the phone, I hold the ringer button until it is all they up, and then I swipe up from the bottom and slide the volume button all the way to the right also.

    Even so, sometimes my phone chimes when I receive texts and sometimes rings when I get phone calls, and sometimes not at all.

    WTF am I doing wrong?

    Doesn't sound like you are doing anything wrong.

    You could try Resetting All Settings in Settings app > General > Reset. Be aware that this will reset any custom ringtones you have assigned to contacts, your passcode, and other things.

    If this issue still persists, it sounds like a restore may be in order.
