Then please reset the settings for your phone
Note: this will reset wifi settings, language, location services
You will have to setup again
Your data will be safe.
So here are the steps
Go to Settings
Go to General
Go all the way to bottom and select Reset
Select Reset all settings (1st option)
It will take 2-3 minutes for the phone to reset
THANK YOU--OK IT IS RESETTING NOW--STILL GOING FOR A MINUTE OR 2 MORE...
now i have a screen that says location services. what do i do?
Please deny it for now
When done, test your games and apps
i can't get out of location services. it has 3 options emergency call start over and cancel
ok then the same location services screen is there with 2 options enable location services and disable location services
Does it work or not?
ok then it says choose a network and it gave the wifi where i am and it is searching--now asks for terms and conditions-- iagree-- now it is asking about using siri should i say use siri?
now the screen says diagnostics the options are automatically send and don't send
ok now the screen is back to normal should I test the sound now?
Does sound work now?
if still no sound, you might want to get a corner of tissue or napkin
twist it and put into the headphone jack
Sorry to say-- no sound. No sound with the games and no sound with the music still.
Do you have a headset?
try to plug into the headphone jack and pull it out couple times
yes. What do I do with the napkin? I didn't understand that. I do have a headset.
please plug the headset in couple times
take it out
then test the phone again
ok-- just a second. I need to find the headset...
OK I put the headset in and out and when it was in-- I could hear the sound through the headset--yeh! I didn't think of that---however.... When I take it out-- no sound still.
Please try this
put the headset in but not all the way about 1/2 way
then wiggle the head of the jack around the port's
take it out and see if you will get sound
This issue is because there is a sensor in the headset jack
ok tried that but still-- so sorry to say-- no sound.
Some how it is stuck and thinking the headset in still inside
That is why you get no sound
Can you check the mute switch?
Where is the mute switch?
make sure it is not on
on the side
you mean the one that mutes the ringer?
That is not on. The speaker phone works fine-- so there is no issue with that. strange...
Please switch it on and back off
try couple times
ok still no sound
I think you should go to an apple store and get it looked at.
However let me reopen your question
Let's get a second opinion on this
OK-- but tell me if you can-- why you think that the speaker phone works and not the app sounds
It's could be hardware issue
When did you get this issue?
what do you mean by issue? this phone?
no sound issue
Oh about 2 or 3 days ago.
I think it's best to go to Apple store and get it checked
Maybe the internet speaker failed
I would say that we did most of the steps there are
OK I will do that. Do you answer questions about the ipad too?
What do you have?
I don't have my ipad with me now but I when I get it and I will log in again. I will accept so you are credited for your time. You were excellent and very helpful--even though I still have no sound it was a pleasure working with you. Thank you fro being there.
Have a great weekend!
