Help. My iphone will not ring or make noise when I receive a text. It doesn't make noise when I type either. The ringer is turned all the way up and it is on. When I go to sounds and choose a ringtone it plays. Also, the bell symbol doesn't show up when I flip the ringer button. I've already tried resetting it and turning it off.

iPhone 4, iOS 6.1.2

    Sounds like the mute switch may have failed. Make an appointment at the genius bar and have it checked if you can't see the indicator that it's switching between mute/ring when you flip the switch back and forth.

    Genius Bar consultations are free. So you just wasted $4.99. And you can get the dot off your screen by turning off assistive touch.
