    Phone Doesn't Ring On Incoming Calls

    All of a sudden my phone won't ring for incoming calls. I still get sound for text notification and missed calls but there is no sound at all for incoming calls. The sound rocker arm shows full sound. Any ideas why??

    Have you installed any new apps? I know that Bria SIP caused this for some. Google voice may also interfere. Have you tried changing the ringtone? Do you hear it when you do? Are you rooted / stock?

    I'm stock so I can't remove google voice. Haven't installed new app for a while. Don't have Bria SIP. Will try the ringtone change. Thx.

    I don't have a Nexus 4 so I'm just going by what I found. It appears a few folks (mostly Nexus 5s) have the same issue so it might be a KitKat bug - but try this if the rocker switch won't bring it back. First, turn the rocker all the way down, to silent mode then back up. If that doesn't do it try this:

    Settings > Device > Sound > Default notification

    Good luck! A phone that won't ring is not good (well it might be appreciated by some!) :-)

    and a further thought... do you have customized ring tones for different Contacts? Maybe the number you are calling from is set to 'silent' - can you have someone with a different number try calling you? Like I said I don't have a Nexus 4 so I'm stabbing in the dark here trying to help you.

    When you reset the ringtone did you hear it as a sample? If not you could be looking at a return. Still under warranty?
