How do I turn off silenced calls on my iPhone?

Answered by Willian Lymon

To un-silence calls on your iPhone, follow these simple steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone. It is the gray icon with gears on it.

2. Scroll down and tap on the “Phone” option. This will open the phone settings.

3. Look for the “Silence Unknown Callers” option. It should be towards the top of the list. Tap on it to access the settings.

4. You will now see a toggle switch next to “Silence Unknown Callers”. By default, this switch is turned on, which means that any calls from numbers not in your contacts will be silenced and sent directly to voicemail.

5. To turn off silenced calls, simply tap on the toggle switch to disable it. The switch will slide to the left and turn gray, indicating that the feature is now turned off.

6. Once you have disabled the “Silence Unknown Callers” feature, any calls from unknown numbers will ring normally on your iPhone.

It’s worth noting that when you disable this feature, you may receive more spam or unwanted calls from unknown numbers. However, it also ensures that you do not miss any important calls from numbers that are not in your contacts.

In my personal experience, I found that enabling the “Silence Unknown Callers” feature can be useful to avoid unwanted interruptions and spam calls. However, there have been instances where I missed important calls from unknown numbers, such as calls from doctors’ offices or delivery services. So, I decided to disable the feature to ensure that I don’t miss any important calls.

Un-silencing calls on your iPhone is a simple process that can be done in a few steps, allowing you to receive calls from unknown numbers without them being silenced.
