    ring/ringing

    I wonder if there is any difference between (1) and (2).
    If so, which is more natural, (3) or (4).

    1. I didn't hear the phone ring.
    2. I didn't hear the phone ringing.

    A: You were not at home when I called you.
    B: (3): That's funny. I didn't hear the phone ring.
    (4): That's funny. I didn't hear the phone ringing.

    Have a good day!

    They're both the same. Both 3 & 4 are fine.
