    Default Galaxy S4 won't ring

    I realized I've been missing a lot of calls lately and just verified why. My phone is NOT ringing in any setting, but my text messages do make sound still. What could make it do this? Any ideas will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried changing the ring tone? Also you don't have blocking mode on do you?

    Yes definitely tried changing ring tone. What (and where) is blocking mode? I don't believe it is on because the calls still come through, just there is no noise as if my phone is on silent and it's not.

    Have you gone into Settings>MyDevice>Sounds>Volume and make sure the ringer slider is all the way up?

    Blocking Mode blocks calls, sounds etc at specific times of the day.

    Settings / My Device / Blocking Mode

    Verizon doesn't have blocking mode.

    Wasn't sure if they enabled it with the last update, I'm on the first 4.1.2 update of cleanrom and it was enabled with the rom.

    Hi Tony, I had this same problem and I managed to fix mine today because it was driving me crazy...... when you go into settings, and into the sound.... right down the bottom there is an adapt sound function...... I followed that whole process in that right through and my ring tones started working again..... not sure why because I have never touched it before

    The adapt sound worked for me because I had the same problem. My phone started ringing in my hand. I saw it but didn't hear anything. I just got it and thought I broke it already. Thanks Ashleigh1984.

    I have Samsung SGH-I897, I think this is an older model. I have the same problem where no ringtone is heard but I this model has nothing like "adapt" in the sound or volume or ringtone menus. The last thing in my sound menu, under the feedback category, is Vibration intensity. Help anyone?

    Mine does this too! I hate my Samsung Galaxy S4....my messages don't always come through either, and NO I don't have the blocking feature activated. What is causing this?

    There are various settings for sound. My ringtone was accidentally set to "silent" so was seeing the calls but not hearing them even when i raised the ringtone. fixed it.

    My wife's Samsung Galaxy S4 is exhibiting a similar problem: It does not ring, but shows a missed call and new voice mail. This happen with the phone sitting next to her keyboard. After picking up the phone and unlocking it, it rings fine with no setting changes. It's almost like the phone is stuck in some audio mode that temporarily mutes the ringer.

    This has happened 4 or 5 times, which makes her appear unresponsive to her clients. Not sure if I should advise her to get a new phone.

    I have a similar problem, but not exactly the same. My Galaxy S4 (on Verizon) "sometimes" does not ring, and other times does. Seems like first call in the morning from certain individuals the phone does not ring (ring tone is on, full blast, no blocking). I get the voicemail message, and when I check my incoming call log, and no call is recorded as incoming. When I check the time of the incoming voicemail and compare it to the call log, it does not show a corresponding incoming call at that time. When I call the person and ask them to call again, the next incoming call from them works fine, rings nice and loud. I just got the phone a couple weeks ago, and returned it for this problem. Tech said it was bad hardware and replaced it. New one is doing the same thing. HELP???
