don't get a ring for incoming call

I have an iPad2 (just got it).  Set up Skype and it works fine... except that there is no ring tone when I have an incoming call.  I have confirmed that Notification Center is set to ON for Skype.  

 

When the call is connected the sound is fine.  So that seems to rule out a hardware problem.  

 

Can someone please tell me how to fix this problem?  Thanks.

Go to Settings on iPad, General, use side switch to: Either check Lock Rotation instead of mute, or turn side switch off regardless of whether mute or lock rotation is checked.

I have the same problem, and it isn't to do with the mute button. Is it a software problem?

Me too, it was fine for ages, but now I don't get any sound for any incoming calls, either video or phone. Any suggestions out there?
