Only today I have noticed that when someone calls me the phone does not ring nor does it vibrate.
 
All Ringer volume settings are set to maximum volume and vibrate in on but still the phone does not ring.
 
I have noticed that the moment an incoming call comes in, the mute icon (speaker icon with x in front of it) flashes on for a fraction of a second before disappearing again and the phone vibrates for a fraction of a second as well. It is as if all the settings are correct but the second a call comes in something launches and switches the volume to mute and switches off vibrate but not quickly enough to prevent a fraction of a second of vibrate and the mute icon appearing for only a fraction of a second as well.
 
I have tried a system restore from by Titanium Backup but the problem still exists. Can anyone help please?

Same problem here, and it's driving me NUTS!!! It's totally random, although lately it seems like it's getting even worse. At first it was just one friend who called me, and no matter what my volume settings were, it was zero volume, or in some cases like 1% volume... like it was my phone ringing off in a distant room somewhere. Now it's happening with multiple callers. I've done a hard reset, I've tried the whole 'plug and unplug' the headset, then adjust the volume in the "music" app... none of it worked. I don't even normally use my wired headset, I use a moto H730 bluetooth. No, it's not causing any problem either because it'll do this even when the bluetooth is off and unpaired. I now have to keep my phone within my peripheral vision at all times, or I'll miss calls all day long. If I see the screen come on, that means I have an incoming call. If I don't solve this problem soon I'm going to self destruct, and I'm taking this phone out with me. This must be resolved, it's affecting my day to day business now.

Otherwise, I love it.

My S1 Captivate is doing the same thing, where the ringer volume can barely be heard. I gave mine a tortional twist, holding it at the top and bottom and found that the ringer came back to full volume. This would indicate to me something mechanical failing, like a bad solder joint, or a break in a printed circuit, or if the speaker is plugged into the board it sometimes making a poor connection. Someone who knows how to get these apart (Samsung, are you listening?) could likely trace it down, and make what seems to be an increasing amount of owners happy.

Torsional twist... I like that.

If it is a mechanical or electronical issue, you will have to send your device away. Although there are 4 of you posting about the same issue, it could just be bad luck that you all ended up with the phones that went through and passed the final inspection.

Before you send your device away, I would suggest doing a full wipe (after backing up) and sewer if that makes a difference.

Titanium Backup for apps and data. SMS Backup & Restore for messages.
