Step 2. Switch off “Do Not Disturb” from the Settings app or Control Center.
Go to the Settings app and then select the “Do Not Disturb” option. There is a switch next to the “Manual” option; click on it to turn off this feature.

At times, the problem may be associated with the settings that you had made if you had an older iPhone device which is still docked your carrier. The problem happens even when the old phone is no longer being used. This is because the calls are directed to the old phone, and when it does not ring, the calls go straight to voicemail.
