Be sure your phone has been currently updated

Is your phone in silent mode? Check the side of the phone where the vibrate/silent button is located. Also be sure to go over your settings as well to ensure everything is set up correctly

I have had this problem before usually means the iPhone is in docking mode and would need a replacement dock connector.

Before replacing this part try cleaning the port with an unused tooth brush and some pure alcohol.

Hope this helps :)

I normally isn't a problem with the IOS. Clean out the charging dock with a clean toothbrush, there should be no need to use rubbing alcohol. That is what worked for me.

Good luck!!
