    I've had my G6 for a couple months and have had issues with call ringing for a while. I rarely hear the phone ringing. I have all the volumes turned up fully but most of the time, the phone just doesn't ring. I get the calls as I can see the incoming calls in the call log and if they leave a voice mail, I get the little tone signifying that there's a voice mail waiting.

    I'm currently looking for a job so getting calls is very important. What else can I check before returning the phone? I like the phone but I think my carrier is able to port my previous Nexus 6P and that worked flawlessly. Better to go back to that than to continue missing calls.

    I'm no expert, but it sounds like you have a lemon. I wonder if there's anything signal wise, but if you still get voicemails and calls are actually coming through - just with no sound, but you are the incoming call on your phone screen - I recommend either contacting LG customer service or returning your phone to your carrier promptly.

    I'll call customer service in the morning. Kinda pizzes me off since I'm paying for a "lesser" phone than my last one.

    Go to settings, general, accessibility, hearing and make sure mute all sounds is not on

    Have you tried doing a full factory reset? I know it's not ideal but that can help with a lot of issues.

    This is a good point. A factory reset could fix random glitches like this one.

    After spending the past couple of months setting up the phone exactly the way I want it, I'll send the phone back (and go back to my old 6P) before I mess around with a factory reset. Yes, the phone will pizz me off that much.

    I'm having the same problem with my G6, no ringtone when some one calls. My watch vibrates and shows the caller so I can at least answer. But I did have the same problem with my G5 so I suspect that there is some app causing this. I use the Silence Premium app to prevent calls during night or when in a meeting. I will try to uninstall it and see what happens.

    Doing a restart normally get the ringtone back for a while.

    Have you tried just using the Do Not Disturb option instead of an additional app?

    Wow, you have ' silent mode ' turned ON. Swipe down from the center / top of the screen, from the window menu you've just exposed, in the center of that menu is a speaker icon, yours has a line through the middle of the speaker, meaning ' silent mode ' in ON, tap the speaker icon to remove that line and where it's only a speaker showing, you've now turned ' silent mode ' OFF . Hope you have got or get that job.
