2. Check your Mute Button

Turn your iPhone 5 so that the screen is facing you and check the tiny switch on the top left side of your phone. If the switch is ON (orange colour is visible) then this may most likely be causing the issue. Make  sure the switch switch is turned OFF by taking the switch and lifting it up so the orange colour isnt visible.
