My iPhone 3G wont ring when someone calls but when I adjust the ringtone's volume it does work! Its also the same for when I get a text message, it only vibrates but just doesnt make a sound. I've tried everything!

    Do you have the ring/silent switch on the side of the phone set to silent (red dot showing)?

    Please make sure that your iPhone is not switched on the silent mode.

    You can also check your settings on your iphone to see if the sound is turned off.
    1) Open Setting on your iPhone
    2) Find and tap sounds
    3) There should be two sections: "silent" and "Ring"
    4) refer to the "ring" section and see if all the switches are "On"

    If still not working, try this step:
    1) Go to "Settings"
    2) Tap "General"
    3) Scroll all the way down and tap "Reset"
    4) Tap on the "Reset all Settings" to reset all iPhone configurations on settings.

    Thanks, and hope this solved your problem!

    Download the diskaid sofware, then go to the root of your iphone and locate \System\Library\SystemConfiguration\PowerManagement.bundle\com.apple.SystemPowe rProfileDefaults.plis rename this file to *.plist2, reboot your phone and its done, it works for me, my iphone dosnt wake up when some one calls, do it under your own risk, you will need to do this every time you upgrade your firmware, sorry for my english I hope this can help you, saludos desde México
