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 !!!

Re: IPhone 4 symbols

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:

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.

Thank you both so much!!  Got the ' screen from rotating' solved.  now I just need to solve the sound issue.  I tried to go to itunes & you can't even hear the tunes play.

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.
