I had my old 4S stolen (it was pass-protected, and I wiped it with FindMyiPhone within 12 hours). I got a new one and had the data restored from iCloud. However, it has been a week and it is telling me that it is still being restored, and that it hasn't backed-up yet since the restoration isn't complete. I charge it every night in room with a strong wifi signal. What do i need to do to get this restoration to finish? I can't see anything that still needs to be restored. Is it just caught in a loop somewhere?
All of a sudden my iphone 4 is not charging from computer or other devices. charges momentarily and then says: Charging not supported with this device (or something like that). Then it may charge for a bit. Have tried different cords, different power sources and also did a restart.
I bought two iphone 5's yeasterday and the plugs on the charging cables don't make contact with the contacts on the phone jack. If I lift the phone the plug falls out. My phone did not get charged throughtout the night even though it was plugged-in. Are others having this same problem?
When my AT&T iphone 5 goes to a low signal zone, or an EDGE zone, such as a friends basement, my girlfriends house, or an elevator, it switches to EDGE, but when I go to a good signal area, it stays on EDGE for a while (at least an hour), or until I shut off the antennas using airplane mode or restarting the phone. Sometimes it also affects Wi-Fi, and when the phone connects to Wi-Fi it gets no data on some apps, until I reset the connection using airplane mode. I want to know once and for all if this is a known hardware or software issue, if I should try to get the phone replaced (which I've had since October), or I should just deal with it as a new phone will not help. I've tried reinstalling iOS, resetting network connections, and DFU restore.
Hello!In anticipation of upgrading from my 4S at some point, and unhappy with many visual elements of iOS7 (as it appears now), I'm wondering if it's possible to install iOS5 or iOS6 on an iphone 5. I'm currently running iOS5.1.1 (and am very happy with it, thank you very much). Is the OS backed up along with the phone's content, allowing a transfer/restore of both the content and the iOS? Or are older iOS's available in some other way?Thanks,David

is ios7 free and when will it com out?
I'm thinking this is impossible, but I thought I'd post and see if I could get an answer. I am running short on data and have unlimited texts and therefore I turned iMessage off because I don't have access to WiFi anywhere. But I found out that it's the only way that I can contact some friends that are out of the country. Is there a way that I can enable iMessage only for those people and leave it disabled for everyone else? I've looked through the forums and searched for the answer, but I can't even find someone who has the same problem as me. Any help would be appreciated.
I ordered my "all contacts" under the phone icon for first name first. However when I send a message, the contact list is ordered last name first. How do I get both contact lists to be ordered the same, first name first?
I am on AT&T - is there anyway to email an already received voicemail message?

The lock button on my iphone 5 has stopped working... I don't live near an Apple store, and my free 90-day AppleCare deal is up. I would like to avoid paying money for a one-time incident to use AppleCare, so is there a way for me to send in my iphone in instead of visiting a store? Or are there other options at all? Thanks so much for your help in advance!

I bought it in January. I just can't believe that my iphone wil not synchronize with my iTunes anymore. And every time the battery gets low, i will have to turn it off and wait it to be full charged, so i can start to use again. Does anyone here had the same problem??
i need help on activating my iphone please.
How do you delete both purchased and free apps from my iphone 5 ?
My friend is on a class trip to Germany. He has been texting me on his ipod, through wifi, with a texting app called text free. I have an iphone with unlimited texting. We have not been texting through iMessage, just SMS, but he is sending them from his ipod. Will I be charged gobs of money for "international texting" or is it part of my data plan since he is using wifi? HELP!
this whole problem started when I first got my iphone 5 around christmas time of last year. And i did the normal activation of my new iphone and syncing my old iphone 4 with this new phone. I synced everything and it was all good, but i started to get these random text from people in my message log. I soon found out that i was recieving every text that was sent to my sister. And if i replied to someone who was texting my sister it would show up like she texted them, not me on a seperate number. Also when i text my sister she would get the text but immidiatly after i sent her it, i would also get a text from myself saying what i sent her. I will literally get a text message from my own number to myself, (Weird ****). So its like my sisters text messaging is fused with mine. Its only messages though, no images or anything else. In the beginging i didnt care about this becasue she wasnt recieving my text i was only getting hers. But now just today she tells me she is getting my text too. And thats a problem! this problem lasted all the way up to about 2 months ago and then i stopped getting her messages. But i gave one of my friends my old iphone 4 and once they activated it for there own use it started to happen again. They use a seperate plan then i do and there number on the phone is different. Before i gave them the phone i wiped everything off of it. i took off the contacts, messages, everything. They use a different apple account and icloud account now on the phone. So idk why it started up again i need help. Here is some background. My whole family shares the same apple account with everything. We have seperate phones, numbers and data for the most part. But with dealing with Icloud and itunes anything like that, we use the same account. My sister uses a iphone 4s btw. With my old iphone 4 i had no probelms with this, everything was normal. But once i switched to the new iphone 5 this problem has occured. Idk what this is about, i havent heard anyone else with this problem, but i need help! btw my other family members on their phones do not have this problem. So i think it has to do something with the icloud but im not sure! this is a serious problem and i need help! Goodluck!
i just factory unlocked the iphone 4 with my provider. i did a full factory reset and set up as a new device. currently it displayed 439 MB "Other" and 13.27 GB free. i understand that a part of the 16gb is used for the ios operations. so that i should have somewhere between 13.6 - 13.8 GB of actual free space. i am wondering what the 439mb of "Other" is and if its something i can ger rid of.
My boyfriend upgraded to an iphone 5 recently and decided to give me his old iphone 4, but i'm on Vodafone and his iphone is locked to Orange. So he rang up Orange to request an unlock which cost £20 and the guy said it could take upto 28days (which seems a long time to unlock a phone) The guy at Orange said the reason for this is that the unlock has to be done by Apple (which makes sense) and so my iphone would go on a list and once it reaches the top of that list it will be done - (is this true?) It's been 3 weeks and my boyfriend still hasn't recieved an email to say the unlock has been successful. I'm starting to get impatient as I didn't think it would actually take the full 4 weeks to process(i know it hasn't been 28 days yet...) - but it's looking like it will take that long at this rate... if it gets unlocked at all! I would also like to know if my iphone 4 has been jailbroken in the past - will this prevent the phone being unlocked by apple? Any help or advice would be great
Im wanting to buy an iphone, but the phone only comes with 30day warranty. Can i buy warranty off apple, such as the apple care plan? Thanks in advance :)
I have a friend who switched from an iphone to a GalaxyS4, so they don't get my iMessages anymore, and it won’t convert them to text message. We have delete the contact and added him as it was new and still it wants to set messages as an iMessage. We have even put the number in as mobile and not iphone. Can anyone help, this is for my job and I need to be able to communicate with him.
Hello, I currently on a road trip in Finland and got a 4G/LTE plan from the local carrier ELISA/Saunalahti. My iphone 5 should do 4G/LTE here and also got the local carrier update to 14.1. The switch for LTE is also there and activated. The phone never switches to LTE. They put my SIM in the local store in another iphone 5 and it did work - so the issue seems to be with my iphone 5. Any Ideas? The phone was bought in Switzerland and is the same model as the guy in the store had - A1429. Anybody with similar issue or an idea? Thanks!
I'm currently using Tmobile. I have 4g data and unlimited texting, when i use imessage without wifi, is there a way to message them without using my data, and charge it to sms instead? thank you!
According to EXIF data, it is rounded to 2mm. Does anyone have an exact figure?
Every time I go to download a app (free) I won't download cause it makes me put in my credit info and when I do it keeps denying it. So now I can't download ANYTHING AT ALL. is there anything I can do?!?!?!?!
Isn't this covered under manufacturer defects? Meaning, I should be getting a new 5 for free. I do have Apple Care.
Before I ordered my iphone 5 from StraightTalk I explained that I wanted to use it as a CDMA (Verizon) in the US and as a GSM (Vodafone) in Europe.I specifically asked if the phone would become a CDMA phone again when I removed the Vodafone GSM Sim after returning to the US. The answer was Yes. The CDMA function worked well in the US and the GSM function worked equally well in Europe.However, when I did remove the GSM card, the iphone 5 stopped working. According to StraightTalk, the only way to return to the CDMA function is to have them do a factory reset, which means loosing all data and downloaded apps.Of course, nobody told me that when I asked the question.Does anybody know if this is a requirement for every iphone 5 or just for StraightTalk phones?
Over the last 4 months or so, my iPhone4's download rate has progressivly slowed. WiFi is still working fine, but cellular data was noticably lagging with missed texts, slow applications, and generally slow browsing. Since then I have switched carriers twice thinking it was a problem with cellular service provider, but to no avail. this last week I have had no ability to connect to my service provider's data network, evident because that little '3G' icon at the top no longer appears in any part of the city I visit. I removed the protective case around the iphone thinking it could be an antennae issue, but no, still not working. Paranoid, I even checked to see that cellular 3G is turned on in the device settings; it is, and I felt stupid for even doubting that it wasnt. Is it normal for a cellular phone's hardware to degrade? Could there be an enviornmental factor i'm not seeing?
Why is there not an option available to extend the iphone warranty to an international warranty? Especially with a phone that you tend to take with you whenever you travel having to go to the country you bought it originally is a pain and sometimes not feasible. In my case : when I travelled from Hong Kong to a business trip in the Netherlands and then on to the US my iphone 5 got stolen at the airport in Hong Kong. luckily I only had a prepaid SIM for Hong Kong in the iphone so I went online and ordered a new simlock free iphone 5 at the Dutch online Apple store to be delivered in Amsterdam a few days later. So far, so good. I am currently in China and my iphone 5 sleep button broke down. As I had to be in Hong Kong last week I thought I would stop by the Causeway Bay Apple Store after making a genius bar appointment. They checked the iphone 5 and confirmed the sleep button was broken and it would be swapped for a new one. However on checking my serial number they told me I had to go back to The Netherlands to get it fixed.... So here is a problem, I am not planning on being there any time soon. Why is it not possible in the global economy we live in to get an international warranty? I called Apple Care and they suggested I could try in an Apple store in North Carolina where I am due in a few weeks, but they could not guarantee they would swap the phone. Now the end of July I am due in the UK and from what I read now an iphone bought in any EU country could be swapped in another EU country. so that would mean I could swap it in London? Very odd. Always travel with my MacBook Air and MacBook Pro and these do have international warranty.
My iphone 5 has a big scratch on the right side of the metal frame is there any way to get it replaced for free or how much it costs to repair it?
I have an iphone 4 running 6.1.3 with character count enabled and on the Sprint network. Recently character count stopped working when texting at least one of my contacts that i know for sure. I haven't gone through to see how many other contacts have the same issue, but i know it still works for some other contacts. Why would character count show for some of my contacts but not others? And what would cause it to stop working when it showed the number of characters before?I have found the problem exists regardless of if it's an SMS text or iMessage. And there is only one contact at a time that is the recipient; it is not an MMS. Is it possible that there actually is more than one recipient that i'm not aware of or is there another reason why character count would stop working only for certain contacts all of a sudden?
I'd get a phone replacement and has been using it more than a month without restoring the previous data, hence once I'd connected to my computer intended to restore the previous data (photos, notes.& etc) ended up missing all my current data, what to do to rescue the missing data as I'm desperate on it, appreciate for any kindest help and advises, thanks.
iphone not accepting my password for voicemail
I'm wondering if there's any way I can check what the capacity of my iphone 5's battery is compared to its original capacity. I know Apple will replace the battery for free if it is under 50% of the original capacity since it's still covered under the one-year warranty but I'd rather know that's the case before I send it in and go without a phone for a week.
Recently I have been experiencing problems with my iphone 5, if I am away from a wifi connection I experience high battery drain & the phone will sometimes get hot.Generally I am in the office or at home & the phone will be connected to a wifi hotspot, however yesterday I was out of the office in meetings etc, I didn’t have access to any wifi so used 3G data, I was in London in areas with generally good 3G coverage. The battery went from 100% to 0% in 9 hours with what I would call minimal usage as follows.4 minutes worth of calls.25 received emails5 sent emails9 photos taken1 hour streaming music via Bluetooth20 minutes reading from news stand5 minutes in the facebook app5 minutes using the Maps app2 minutes viewing London Tube Map app this appears to be a problem with the data receiving part of the phone as when I have access to wifi the battery life is generally fine. I have had iPhones for about 3 years & never had issues like this. Has anyone else experienced similar problems?
i smashed the screen of my iphone 5 earlier and it was bought just before christmas, i was wondering will apple repair the screen for free or swap the phone? the phone is still working fine, just the screen needs changing by the looks of it.
Hello, this is my first time on a forum like this so I don't really know what to expect but basically the reason why I am here today is because of the fact that my iphone's battery is excuse my french, dog s***. I'm 16 years old almost 17 and I haven't had any problems with my other iphone's before (iphone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S) I charge it at 100% in the morning, so I leave it all night from 1% the previous night and then I get up and without even using it, it's at 95% already. Now the thing you're going to say is have you tried: Turning off 3G/LTE - YESTurning off Wi-Fi - YESBluetooth - YESLocation Service's - YESPush Email - YESMessing with the brightness - YESRe-setting the phone several times (LOL) - YES I honestly don't see why it is draining this much, I have like 10 apps and all of them are ones that don't send much data, nor recieve much. You know the usual Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc etc. If someone could possibly help me I will be the happiest man alive!!! Thanks-Ed
I bought iphone4 on December 2012. It just switched off and while switching it on it went to recovery mode. So I took the iphone to apple authorised service provider (Ample Technologies,Chennai), they done software update and tried but it was still in recover mode. Finally they said that, they will provide replacement since my phone is under warranty. But after examining they said that its physically damaged and they will not provide any service and also asking me to get iphone back. I tried contacting the customer care India No and I talked to the Technical manager but he simply said "UNFORTUNATELY WE DONT HAVE ANY OPTION TO PROVIDE YOU MAM, SO PLEASE COLLECT your iphone FROM THE SERVICE CENTER". But the saddest part is eventhough I've my phone under warraanty I'm not given any service, they are just asking to throw it in the dustbin and wailk away. I just asked them provide hardware service. Now what shall I do????
I started with one iphone. Then an iPod was added. Then another iPod. And now 2 more iPhones. The phones are all under an A T & T family plan. When setting them up I used the same Apple ID so we would all be able to get the same apps. I'm not sure if this is correct. It is causing problems because any apps that are added to one device it automatically goes to all the other devices. And calendar events are popping up on other devices. Also whenever a device is plugged in to the computer to charge or update, they all say katie's phone which is the original device. How do I get iTunes to recognize each individual device? Any help would be appreciated.
when I backup my iphone does it save all my games data?
Hey,I tried updating my 4s today and my phone got stuck in recovery mode. I have nothing backed up and over a years worth of data on my aps aswell as very important baby photos that I was hoping I wouldnt lose. I have tried holding lock/home a few times and does not work, also I have tried RecBoot with the same outcome. I am getting very worried and cant access my phone. Is there any ways I can either cancel the update or exit recovery without restoring the phone ? Thanks in advance !!!
Hi everyone, I am trying to sell my old iphone 4S as I have now got an iphone 5, and I have tried to contact Optus to ask them if they can unlock the 4S so I can sell it, but they don't think they sold it to me, I must have bought it from Apple and they cannot unlock it. Does anyone have any advice on how to get my phone unlocked? Thank youKirsten
Why doesn't iOS 6 or 7 have the ability to "click to call" any 10-digit number in the "contact notes"? this is a simple and quick option to create, isn't it? I get so tired of copying and pasting phone numbers in the "notes" section of my contact cards. I should not have to do that. By the way, I should not have to make a contact card for everyone whose phone number is associated with a contact. Please advise.
I was planning on buying a 32GB unlocked iphone 5 with the T-Mobile Nano Sim. I was going to activate the Sim with T-Mobile's prepaid $30 unltd text/data with 100 minutes plan. I've read some stories online where people were only able to use the Sim with T-Mobile's post-paid plans. Will the Sim that comes included work with prepaid and post-paid plans? Also, assuming that it does work with prepaid, what steps would I need to go through to activate the iphone? Assuming that it doesn't, would cutting down a prepaid Micro Sim from T-Mobile to Nano Sim size work normally? Thank you in advance!
I'm having problems charging my iphone 5. The charger sits in the dock but does not charge. If I wiggle the end of the cable, it charges but only if I hold it there - unfortunately I don't have the time to sit charging my phone by hand for 3 hours a day! It is not the cable that is the problem as it does not work with any other chargers in the house. I have an appointment at the Genius bar on the weekend but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this?
Itunes won't recognize my iphone, it still charges when plugged in though. Help?
Hello I have done a little research and this appears to be a network wide issue with data sims on the B-Mobile network. The iphone does not correctly calculate the strength of the network and thinks it has no signal (even if you really have full signal) and powers the radios up to max impacting the battery life of the iphone greatly. I believe this to be because the SIM cannot work as a phone at all the iphone does not realise this even though the data connection is perfect. If you go into field test mode it seems to read the signal correctly. Here are some photos showing what is happening.No Bars: http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/c9e4/4jct9p7q54izmq1fg.jpg?size_id=8Field test: http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/aa41/6bn6m47vm4prc9yfg.jpg?size_id=8
