    Wow the sucking on the headphone jack thing really worked.  I thought it was a joke but it actually fixed the problem.  Thanks guys.

    Compressed air with little nozzle worked for me!

    Ok- today I was playing in the snow with my family and had my iPhone in my pocket the entire day. It didn't get wet or anything, but when I came inside I noticed the sound wasn't working. The only sound my phone could make was the ringing from a phone call, and when I put my phone call on speaker phone. So, I tried a lot of peoples suggestions and put them together! Heres what I did:


    1) I turned my iPhone off with the headphones in

    2) I turned it back on with the headphones still in

    3) I took the headphones out

    4) I took a q-tip and jammed it in the hole where the headphones go, and cleaned out the hole a little bit

    5) I sucked on the hole where you put your head phones in for a little while (crazy right?! But it works!!)

    6) I plugged in head phones

    7) While the headphones were still in I twisted them around in the hole a little bit

    8) I repeaded stepps 6-7 7 times


    Then it started working! YAY! I really suggest this method it worked for me! Just try a bunch of stuff, and if it still doesn't work and you still have your warranty you can get a new phone for free! Hope this helped

    Try using some canned air while moving the nozzle in and out.  This worked for me.  I think mine had lint holding the contacts open.

    Send yourself a text. It seems to reset it back to ringer. Might take a few times.

  • smforte Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Text thing didn't work either......Same no sound problem here....I updated a few days ago.   It appears to be a problem with the phone thinking it's in docking mode.  That's the only time mine will work.  I've tried everything that's been suggested.  Cleaning the charging port w Qtips and alcohol, resetting, restoring, headphones etc to no avail.  I'm going to ATT this weekend and shove this phone up someone's - well you know!

    i've tried all the suggestion listed here but its no good to me, But when i was about to give up, I accidentally press my home button, and there comes SIRI, i talked to this virtual assistant telling her whatever on my mind that time. At first, Siri is not responding.. But after about 2-3 minutes, she suddenly responded and alas!! My iphone is back to ringer mode. Hope this information would help. :)

    Same thing happened to me so i cut a qtip in half (the ends didnt fit) and then i scraped the inside and a little lint came out until after a few scrapes a pretty significant piece came out and now it is back to normal. I guess the lint and dust just builds up over time.

    I dropped my phone in a sink full of water yesterday, quickly pulled it out and was overjoyed nothing seemed wrong, I didn't have a water proof case!  My son called me to pick him up from school this am and when I answered (it rang) he could hear me but I couldn't hear him,  So phone was in headphone mode, I tried restarting that didn't work but I followed these instructions exactly and it worked!  Thank you!!!!

    my 2 weeks old iphone 5S got stuck in headphone mode. here is how i fixed it (not my original workaround!). i tried a lot of other suggestions.......


    use headphones and phone someone from your faulty phone. whilst speaking to the person lock your phone (without terminating the call). then pull out the headphone plug from the phone. it should be fixed now. if not, do a restart.
