Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.
Did you 'Play sound' from iCloud ? It will work even if the volume is low or muted
There are two ways to find the iPhone if it is in your house. First is, go to www.icloud.com
Login to the iCloud account. Click Find iPhone. Select your iPhone under Devices. Now click on Play Sound button. This will play a continuous sound on your iPhone regardless of volume level or muted.
Another suggestion is, wait until it's dark. Then turn off all lights and make sure no ambient light enter to the house. Now play sound from iCloud or ring the phone. This will light up the screen and you may be to locate it just from the brightness of the phone.
There are no other way to find the exact location of the phone other than using Find iPhone. The iPhone will keeping ringing until you turn it off manually when you play sound from iCloud. Doesn't it ring ? Hopefully you will be able to find it.

Hi there, Just checking. Were you able to find the iPhone using iCloud Play Sound ?
I'm sorry. A phone call wouldn't help in this case as this is not a issue that can be resolved on phone. You didn't get charged for the phone call. The $5 was only a safety deposit. It is fully refundable.
Did you try my suggestions ?
I will request JustAnswer to refund your account. It may take a day or 2 to process the refund
