    I found the accessibility tools and set my iPhone 5C to give a flash when I have incoming calls, texts or emails. However, this silenced my phone. I will sometimes not be able to hear my phone, so the flash is very helpful. By the same token, I will sometimes not have my phone within visual range, but would be able to hear it ring. Can I not have both?

    It should not have silenced your phone. It should work exactly like you want it to. Try rebooting the phone. Also double check that you didn't inadvertently switch the ringer off on the side. You'd be surprised how often that happens and people don't realize it.

    Thank you, the reboot worked! I had not thought to do that.

    Appreciate the help!
