Answer to: Why aren't my volume buttons or ringer working?I found the solution to this recurring volume ringer problem. There is a button on left hand side of the phone device, this button if switched off, it will set your volume ringer to MUTE. and regardless of you trying to raise the ringer volune or lower it from any where in your i Phone device, it will not change it! Even resetting your i phone software will not overcome the off position button. switch it back and walla!
