  2. You'll know the your iPhone is on silent when you see a small, orange line because switch is pulled away from the screen.
  3. To turn your ringer on, pull the switch towards the screen.

My iPhone won’t ring and the switch on the left works fine and is working. When I want a code from my email program it sends a call and gives me a code but it doesn’t ring so I don’t get a code. My mail is hacked by a foreigner who has my phone number. And I do no know what to do?
