LG Phone Won’t Ring/Vibrate

There are times when people simply want to put away their phones and not be bothered, but when you’re waiting on a call or text message, you expect your LG phone to ring or vibrate as it should. If neither of these operations are working on your LG phone, what can be done?

If your LG phone won’t ring or vibrate, check to make sure that the ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature has not been turned on, confirm that the mute button has not been turned on and that the volume is set to at least 50%, and try completing a factory reset.

There is a never ending debate as to what is the most ideal way to receive a notification that a call is coming in on your phone: whether it is most appropriate to have the ring on or more polite to keep it on vibrate. There are pros and cons to each setting, but at the end of the day, LG phone owners simply want the option of either. If you own an LG phone and it won’t ring or vibrate, read below to find out what you can do to restore these functions on your device.

LG Phone Won’t Ring/Vibrate

There are times when having the ringer on with your LG phone is most convenient and necessary, and there are other times when keeping your device on vibrate is just as well and even more appropriate for the setting. Whether you find yourself in a loud crowd or quiet movie, LG phone owners should be able to choose between their phone ringing or vibrating when a call comes in, which is why you should continue reading if these functions are not working.

If your LG phone won’t ring or vibrate, one of the most common causes is that the device has been set to ‘Do Not Disturb.’ This setting allows the phone to receive notifications, but you only see them if you awaken the home screen of your device causing all notifications to be silenced.

To turn off ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode on your LG phone, simply pull down the Control Center from the top of your LG phone screen and look for the Do Not Disturb icon. Once you see the icon, simply tap it and be sure that it is no longer highlighted, as this indicates that the settings have been disabled which will allow your device to ring or vibrate when a call or notification comes in.

If you are in the middle of a lecture, there is no need for the ringer on your phone to be on, however, if you are in your own home and leave your phone in another room, it can be incredibly convenient to be able to audibly hear when a phone call is coming in. There certainly are times when a ringer is exactly what LG phone owners need, therefore, when you see a call coming in and no ring is coming from its speaker, a solution is in need of being found.

If your LG phone won’t ring, check first that you don’t have the mute button turned on. When this button is turned on, your phone will only vibrate when a call or text comes in. You also want to ensure that the volume on your device has been turned up to at least 50% so that the ring is audible.

When it comes to getting your LG phone to ring, the steps to making this feature work are known pretty widely. However, if you notice that your phone is not vibrating, there might be a little less familiarity with the problem. When you turn the mute button on with your LG phone, your device should automatically switch to vibrating when you receive a text or call, but if this is not working on your device, read below to see what can be done.

If your LG phone won’t vibrate, it could be a problem with the motor, but before going to extreme measures, try performing a factory reset on the device. To do this, go to ‘Settings’ > ‘All Settings’ > ‘General’ > then select the option to ‘Reset to Initial Settings’ which will cause the reset.

LG Phone Not Making Calls

When you want to make a phone call, one of the easiest things you can do is simply dial a number or select a contact and get straight to the conversation on your LG phone. This is a very basic function, but when it is taken away due to issues with its operation, users immediately feel the inconvenience. If your LG phone isn’t making phone calls, read on to see what might be the cause of the problem and what you can do to get calling out back in working order.

If your LG phone isn’t making calls, it could be that you are in an area where reception is poor, which means you simply need to move to another location. Another common problem is that Airplane Mode has been turned on and this can be disabled with the click of the icon on your pull-down screen.

If your LG phone won’t ring or vibrate, make sure that you have the volume turned up to an audible level, that you have the mute button disabled, that ‘Do Not Disturb’ has been turned on, complete a factory reset, or move to another location to improve cellular service.
