    We can see this option is currently deactivated, indicated by the gray switch on the right-hand side. We can mute a contact, which is not the same as blocking.

I can't un-mute the phone. Every call I make the person can not hear me, but I can hear them?

The speaker button in the right-hand corner has a slash through it. I have tried: Pressing to un-mute it but nothing happens. I think it was caused by: Phone may have been in sun too long? Said it was going to power off due to heat

Your screen is unresponsive. Shut off the phone and let the device cool down before using it again. You will want to wait at least one hour before turning the phone back on. When you shut it down, remove the battery and check to see if there is any visible swelling on the battery itself.

Go into the Notification settings within WhatsApp to see if you have Mute selected from within the app. You can also go into Chat Settings and Restore to Default. Uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp if you are still set to Mute and can't make changes within the app properly.
