A major problem with the iPhone is that you can’t get it repaired easily. Last year when I broke my iPhone’s power switch, I luckily found a store in Noida that repaired it. But this time I haven’t been that lucky.
Few days back, I dropped my iPhone on the road and the silent switch broke. The phone has permanently gone into silent mode. No matter what I try (mind you, i’ve tried a lot) it just doesn’t work. In fact while trying to fix it using a safety pin I’ve made big dents on the sides 🙁 Worst of all, I’m unable to find stores in Bangalore who can fix this. Leave the spare parts issue, most of them don’t even know how to open the body.
Anyway, today after some extensive Googling, I managed to find a temporary solution for the issue. The solution is a Jailbroken app called Mirror Profile that allows you to create a schedule based on which your iPhone can have different properties based on the time as well as day of the week. I installed this app and changed my profile from “Sleeping” to “Standard”. And voila, It enabled all the ringers!
The app costs $5.99 and works well. There is a 30-day trial if you want to check if it works for you. The only problem I have with paid Jailbroken apps is that there isn’t any guarantee that they will work with the next OS upgrade.
Anyway, this solution gives you at least 30 days to find a proper fix. And it proves that there is some API that can be used to create a simple SBSettings toggle for this. If nothing works out, I might have to get my hands dirty and do it 🙂
