IPhone 4 symbols

IPhone 4 symbols

IPhone 4 symbols.  I wish they would have manuals for these..lol.  My hubby has a symbol by his battery symbol it is like a circle with a lock in in.  Any ideas as how to take that off?  Also his phone vibrates...but the other sound notifications don't work.  Speakers still work..settings seem ok...I just don't knoe how to get his ringtones to work again.  Mine vibrates & rings...that is the way I want his too.  Thank you !!!

There is an official manual and it's a good place to start as about all the features are listed there (see page 17 and page 31; Portrait Orientation lock ... Page 194 for the sounds, ringers, vibrate features):

Here is the finger tips and quick start guide:

There is also a lot of information on the support page:

That circle with a lock in it prevents the screen from rotating. If you double tap the home button and then swipe the row on the buttom to the right, then tap that same symbol which is all the way on the left.

Check the volume switch on your husband's phone to see if it is set to silent/vibrate.  Look on the left side of the phone if you are facing it.  There is a switch; if you see an orange indicator, the phone is set to silent.  Flip the switch to turn the sound back on.

Every iPhone has the manual right in Safari.

 

Just go to the root of Safari's bookmarks and there is the manual in easy to access categories.

If you plug in headphones, do you hear volume then?

Do you perhaps have a bluetooth headset connected?  When wired or wireless headphones are connected, the majority of the audio is piped to the headphones.

I don't have the headphones plugged in....but you are right,,when I plug the headphones in I hear the volume.  I can call the phone and hear it ring with the headphones on.  So how do I turn off the headphones?  Thank you so much!

I recall hearing that some people had an issue with their phones arriving from China in that mode where they thought the headphones were attached.  For most people, just plugin and unplug the headphones 4-5 times and it resolves itself.  If it doesn't you might want to schedule an appointment at a genius bar to get your phone replaced.

headphones

Thank you so much!!  I tried that..no go.  When we bought the phones just prior to christmas all worked fine.  This just happened overnight.  He didled with something as he always is playing on it lol.  When I call him it still vibrates with no other ringtone sound.  Mine does both.  Anyway, when I call him it goes automatically to his voice box after I hang it up (maybe that is normal)

Re: headphones

If it were me, I would connect it to iTunes, click on the device on the left and then click Restore and afterwards when it asks if you want to use a backup I would select No.  That will wipe the device and reload the software as if it were new out of the box.

 

If that doesn't fix the sound issue, that will means its hardware and will need to be replaced by Apple.

Re: headphones

Thank you for your idea...it sounds like a great one.  Unfortunately, we took it to the att store..the speakers have gone out on it.  Thank God it is still under warranty.  Again, Thank you all for your help.  We tried!!!!
