I bought my iPhone on Sunday. Two days ago, I set the ringer volume all the way down but reset it back to a level between mid to high. All it's doing now is vibrating. if I turn off vibrate, it doesn't even do anything and I'd never know someone is calling if I wasn't staring at the phone. If I change ringtone, I can hear the ringtone. However, the key sounds are no longer working either. Did I press some button that disabled something?

Umm... how about taking it off silent. See switch on side, next to volume control. If you see and orange dot, its on silent.

I had this happen to me recently-- plug in the headphones and unplug them. That made sounds work for me. :)

Ok, I feel like a total idiot. I didn't even know there was a silent mode button and it was on silent. Thanks so much for pointing that out.

Um. Yea.
Right there with you.
Had no idea there was a mute on the side.
Good to know!
