I realize that the mute switch is a physical switch but does it breaking the circuit to the speaker? The reason I ask is I am buying my daughter her first cell phone. Kids easily lose stuff or like her iPod (she left it on a park bench... grrr...) gets stolen. Even if you can track it to a general location it is still tough to find. If someone has stolen it they will most likely turn off the ringer so they are not outed. So does anyone know if you can remotely enable the ringer on a iPhone 5 or 5s?
