    Cannot Hear My iPhone 4 Ring.
    Tried a search and came up empty. I just can't hear my iPhone 4 ring 95% of the time. It's just not loud enough for me. All the setting are as high as they can go and I tried all the ringtones that came with the phone and I still cant hear the darn thing. Is there maybe some kind of an app or setting for the hearing impaired I can try? Do you know of a super loud ringtone? I'm missing like 90% of my calls because I can only hear the phone in a dead quiet room. Thanks.

    Have you taken it to the Apple Store to see if it might be a hardware issue my friend had
    a 3g with a low volume problem and they exchanged it.

    .


    The "ALARM" ringtone that's on the standard list is
    the loudest ringtone I've heard on any cellphone.

    It reminds me of the old WWII submarine movies
    where they sound an alarm and announce --

    DIVE ! DIVE ! DIVE !!!

    Apple will be happy to replace your iphone seeing as it is a hardware issue and im pretty positive that no iphone 4 owner is out of warranty yet.

    I solved that problem by simply making my own ringtones outside of iTunes, horribly obnoxious death metal usually is very easy to ear. If that doesn't do it I'd say the Genius Bar is your best bet.

    So you just can't hear ringtone? Did this problem happen in alarm setting? You can try setting the alarm clock to see if it would wake you up. If it will be in low volume, i guess there is something wrong with your hardware. Get you iPhone to exchange another new asap.

    Great idea, but would hate to have THAT #$%hole boss, IF the alarm didnt wake me up lol
    @ OP work with this, BUT set another alarm in the house just in case the iPhone doesnt wake you up

    They say nothing is wrong with my phone. I tend to believe them because I know three people with one and they all sound the same. It would be nice if they address this issue in the future for us hearing impaired or people that work in a noisy environment.

    I, too, have missed a few calls because i did not hear the ringer. Especially when driving and the phone is in my pocket. Some suggestions
    1. first make sure vibrate-only switch is off, and make sure ringer volume is all the way up.
    2. the speaker is at the bottom of the phone, so try and situate the phone so the bottom is facing you.
    3. the speaker hole is very small, and if covered, can block most of the sound. make sure the hole is not covered.
    4. i find a shirt pocket with the bottom of the phone facing up is my best bet to hear the ringer in the car.
