I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m not a Mac person. And I’ve never been an iOS-device person either, but last year I did buy an iPhone 4S so I could write about how it works with streaming media players and also check out apps that are generally developed for iOS before Android. And finally I understood why people prefer iPhones to Android phones… Because they’ve never used an Android phone! 🙂
(Seriously, Apple, no Back button…? Seriously?!)
Even though I’m not a big fan of my iPhone, I do still use it for the original purpose I bought it and also for its camera because it lets me take pics without using up my actual phone’s memory and battery power.
Since I’ve had it, there have been a few times when the ringer notification would pop up incessantly saying that the phone was muted. However, in those cases, when I shut down and restarted the phone, the message would go away. But yesterday it started happening again and I could not get it to stop. So today I contacted Ms. Google and found this thread where the first respondent provides a great list of things to try:
Issues with ringer notification (Apple iPad Forum)
In my case, the problem seemed to be that the Mute switch on the side of the phone wasn’t 100% set to one side or the other and when I gave it a stronger push, the message finally went away. (Huzzah!)
NOTE: This isn’t in the first answer, but further down the page it also mentions to make sure that the two volume buttons aren’t stuck or damaged in some way.
