This is my issue. I have been using the messages app and spotlight to search keywords and/or phrases in old text messages. Scenario: Using the search bar in the messages app, I lookup Mac. It returns 2 results. I click the message I want to view and it opens the most recent message in thread. So I tried using Spotlight. Granted, it returns more results (about 6,7), but when I click the message to finish reading it, again, it opens the most recent message in the thread. Is there an app that actually searches messages and lets you view the message?
Please help me:( Iphone 5) I sometimes hear my own voice slightly while during a call. Do you have a problem like this? I am using Iphone 5 for 5 mounths but last 2 mounths I hear my own voice echo during the call? What is the problem? Is my phone tapped?
Sometimes, when i lend my iPhone away for a few hours, that person would have complete access to my messages, whatsapp and so on. Is there any way (or app) that can lock specific apps?
How to lock apps such as whatsapp witha passcode

My iPhone 5 battery drains a lot. After 42 minutes of usage, and 5 hours of standby it drops to 89%. I'm just wondering if thats normal. I was wondering, if theres a way I can completely restore my iphone. Like restore nothing back onto it, only my text messages and imessages cause those are really important.
I dropped my phone with an otterbox defender case on the phone on its back, directly following the fall (maybe 3ft) the screen remains black, however, the phone is still on because I get text messages and emails. I believe that the digitizer may have been dislodged from the logic board. Should I investigate the phone myself or take it in, mind you the nearest apple store (grrr) is almost 60 miles away.
My iPhone 5 recently started having problems with the ringer. The ringer will be turned all the way up, the mute button is NOT being used and the phone will not ring for calls or alert for texts. It is not always happening, but more so than not. I have tried rebooting the phone, the OIS is up to date and I do not have the "Do Not Disturb" set. I can be in the same spot with LTE and full signal have a call/text that is missed then receive a call/text and it rings. Does not seem to matter if the call is coming from a land line, same Verizon carrier cell or different carrier cell there is no noticable reason. Any ideas???
To avoid extra charges when I travel, do I turn on airplane mode? Will that automatically turn of voice and data roaming? Should I leave wifi on?
Hello! I have an Iphone 4s. Some time ago, I deleted some persons out of my contact listand and also the messages in my inbox. But when I slide to the right (search screen) , I can still find their names and the first sentence of the message. Can I delete this? Thank you so much for helping !
How to receive SMS delivery reports? Not iMessages, not mails, I'm talking about SMS. There is no option in settings-messages... so I can't know exactly is it received or not.
For the past half year, every time I open my voice Memos app, it shows the app interface and then immediately crashes and exist the app. This happens without me touching the screen after opening it.
I dropped it in water.. for the third time. The speakers do work, when i activate siri it works and registers my voice, and earphones work aswell. Sometimes the volume slider will show up, but goes away in seconds. I restored phone, riced it overnight, used credit card to try and clean out the ports and q-tip in headphone jack. What else is there to do to fix this?!
This has been going on for a while now. It did have some sort of hot and cold phase. E.g. one day the speaker for Siri works then the next it doesn't. But now it doesn't work completely. It's been really bugging me. I've been hearing a lot of rumours that the iPhone 5 has had loads of technical problems. Such as, delivered broken and certain other things that do not work. Knowing if this is true, I do not know. However, the iPhone still works when I am on the phone to people. People have suggested to me to restore my phone to factory settings. I have backed it up onto my PC, then did a full restore, then restored my backup. Still, did not work. If anyone has any suggestions on what I should do, please could you let me know. Thank you, Sean.
My phone volume is very low only for calls. I use the Voxer walkie talkie app and the ear piece volume is loud, but as soon as I make a call or listen to a voice mail, the volume is near mute as max volume. Any solutions?!
i have selected the sound "update" for my text messages, and it only works intermittently all of a sudden. i have changed sounds to "minuet" with similar problem. i have restarted and also reset iphone 5, but still intermittent.
I am frustrated that voice Control only signals that it is ready to listen to me with the double beep. voice Dial says "Speak Now". Can I use voice Dial instead of voice Control to dial handsfree with my iPhone 4?
I recently updated my iPhone 5 to Version 6.1.4. It deleted all of my contacts and old text messages, and nothing is left on iCloud. What do I do?
In Maps or Google maps the voice stopped speaking to me on my IPHONE4 Can anyone help?ThanksAbester10
Hi Everybody!I got a factory unlocked (originally was Vodafon locked) iPhone 4s with firmware 6.1.3.When I insert my sim (Hungarian Telenor) when only EDGE is on it founds the signal and seems like everything is working.After a few hours or sometimes even a day passes by a phone stays on full signal with Carrier logo and Edge on, but my friends reporting that they cant call me(like im offline) and i cant make calls either.The interresting stuff is that the Edge connection is fully working during that im offline for my friends via Calls and i can send and recieve imessages and viber messages.When i switch 3g on it disconnects from service drops the EDGE and never finds the way back and stays 'searching' or 'no service' at all.. I thought that its my Carrier's fault so i went to spoke with them and tried 5different micro Sims( cause i wrote that 4s-s are sensitive to SIM card types).. this thing not worked either, Then i tried the phone with a T-mobile SIM card.. it does the same..connects to the services,but with 3g switched on not finding service..so totally like with my sim. Here Comes the bumm... i Tried the phone with vodafone sim and everything works.. simple connectivity to 3g with full internet usage,can make and recieve calls...I spoked with all of the Carriers and also Apple and no body can give me nothing..the phone is off varranty so changed to a new one isnt an option..Anybody? Something? im beginning to give up .. please help if you can..Thanks!! ps.:i restored over 20times,reset network settings,switch off and on automatic setting time.. every little possible things that people wrote on forums before..
Is there a way to automatically backup text messages to gmail like the android sms backup+?
1. Starting on April 24th my iMessage option stopped working. When I would send a text to another iphone user they wouldn't receive the text. I turned that option off and sent test text messages - they went through. Turned iMessage back on - and nothing was received. Does anyone know why that would be happening? It is rather frustrating when a needed function does not work. 2. Also, I can not receive picstures over text anymore. I can receive them when I open my messenger program on my laptop, but nothing over text. Does anyone know what is going on with these issues?!
Hi All, So I have disbled my iPhone 4s by forgetting my passcode (like it seems many other people do!). Also as the phone went dead as I was away for the weekend the SIM is also locked. I have often backed it up to iCloud but I never had the camera roll back up option ticked as I cannot see it when I sign into iCloud. I dont have iTunes on my laptop or access to the original iTunes where it was synced a year and a half ago. My question is can I get the phone unlocked by Apple? ( I have the IMEI number and proof of purchase) Is there any way of keeping or getting my photos/videos and messages? When I had my phone plugged into the laptop and was clicking backup through wifi will this have also backed up my photos? Thanks!
Is there any way to search text messages via the iphone serial number? I had water damage and had to replace, I thought I had backed up my phone to itunes but I can not find it with a text recovery system, wonderwall for itunes.
Hi, I've got an iPhone 4 that works all perfectly. For some days I can't ear when make a call and also my voice can't be eared from other people: speaker and microphone are mute and iOS auto-activate speakerphone on out/ingoing calls. I tried to reovery the phone and install latest iOS without solution. Can someone help me? Regards, thanks
Spyware is very easily accessible and requires nothing from the Apple store, and although I realize some of these posts are several years old-at this point, it is simply misinformation. All one needs is a similar program to the one in the link above and not only can your sms messages be accessed, your calls be intercepted and recorded, but the camera in your phone can be remotely accessed and activated at any given time without your knowledge. As you tap away on your handy little iPhone you love so much, in whatever possibly "compromising" or embarrassing position you may be in at the time, a creeper can be looking you straight in your face or observing your enviornement at their leisure. Imagine the horror in finding out that you were sitting there on the toilet gaming and someone was watching you the whole time or better yet, while you were involved in an intimate interaction while your phone sat charging on a dock on the nightstand next to the bed? How about knowing that every incoming and outgoing communication is recorded and documented for the creep to scroll and read through like a book? This is some scary stuff, and it's been used on me via an encrypted picture message. I've done a full restore of my iPhone and the pc used for backing up via iTunes to ensure that the spyware wasn't then rooted into the pc or the iTunes, and was even told to create an etirely new Apple ID, but aside from this and there being no true scanning software for malware, spyware or viruses for the iPhone-how can I be sure that this encrypted software has truly been eradicated? Is there an antiviral program that I am unware of? I'm not looking for a secure AVG browser, I'm looking for a detect and destroy scanner program. <Link Edited by Host>
I have an Iphone 5... I cannot make calls or receive calls. I reset network settings and I have reset the SIMS card and I am still having the same problem. My husband is on the same cell service as I am and he is not having any problems. When I try to make a call - it goes directly to call ended - when people try to call me it goes directly to my voice mail. on the left hand side at the top all it says is seraching - my wifi is connected... i also keep getting NO Service.. Can anyone help? Thanks
My iphone is acting erratic when texting either in messages or email. It's inserting periods, capital letters, and erasing entire text when I try to erase one letter.
The voice to text is not working. I have restored the phone several times and it will not work. Siri's voice to text works though.
My mum send messages to her contacts and all but one doesn't receive the message and the one who doesn't receive the message is using an iphone 4 and she uses an iphone 5
Hey everyone I have been holding back from updating my iOS on my iphone 4s (I know - not a smart move) I am currently still on 5.1.1 and trying to update to 6.1.3 (finally) from the phone itself (not via iTunes) I am trying to downlaod and install the update using Wi-Fi connectivity, but it just wouldn't let me? Kept saying An Error occured while downloading... It didn't give me any error code or any other explanation. It just simply won't update I know it was silly of me to begin with for not updating for so long, but I don't understand why my phone is rejecting the update? If this is even what is happening.. Also I sent my iMac for repair recently, came back with a Lion (which was what I had on there previously anyway) but it wasn't updated? So I couldn't just open iTunes and restore all my contacts.. AND I am still currently in the process of downloading the updates - but something always happens as well, an error occured that I have to re-download the update, internet drops on and off, etc. -- The reason I wanted to update was (this is a whole separate problem) my 4s kept crashing the apps, not doing anything out of ordinary - it just crashes everytime i start or a open an app. So I would hard reset my phone (turning it off and on again) and then I would find all my contacts gone. No other entries are gone, just my contact names! All messages and calendar entries are all still there - just no contact names in my address book. ***? After sleuthing here and there, and found no real solution to this problem. I decided to update my iOS because one of the discussion thread I found told me to try that. Heck, why not. SO I tried uploading and this is where I end up.. Does ANYONE have any idea what the **** is going on? Does anyone else out tehre have the same problem? Surely this is not just me!!
When messages app is used, phone frequently freezes and the same thing happens when I open other applications on the phone. Any suggestions to fix this problem without resetting the whole entire phone?
I have an Iphone 4 8gb and it seems that everytime I try to download an app/song or try to take a photo/video it is constantly telling me there's no more space left on my Iphone. The content of my iphone is: 1.40 GB's of music, 761.1 MB of photos, 779.6 MB of apps, and 3.39 GB's of other. I don't know how to get rid of the "other" part that takes up half my storage. If anyone has some helpful ways to get rid of the other storage without losing all my data (pics, music, apps, messages, etc) let me know!
I have a CDMA iPhone (Verizon), and I frequently hike using an app that tracks my route with GPS. However, the battery drains completely in 3-4 hours partly because the phone is looking for a cellular network. I tried turning on Airplane Mode, but that also disables the GPS. Of course, I have turned off cellular data and bluetooth, but the phone keeps looking for a cellular (voice) network. I have checked forums and people with GSM phones simply remove the SIM card, but I can't do that since I have a Verizon phone. Is there any way to turn off the battery-draining search for a cellular network when I am in remote areas?
So my iPhone slipped out of the back of my pocket & into the toilet. Now its been water damaged for about 3-4 hours now & at one time it would allow me to make calls & text messages-the normal- but now that I am home from work, i have a red screen showing on my iPhone. Theres no way that I can take it apart as of now because of the stores being closed already. & the nearest wal mart is pretty far. What do I do? Its currently in a ziploc full of rice. Will that at least do SOMETHING? HELP! HELP! HELP!
I'm assuming I sent way to many messages out at once and now my messages won't work. I tried turning off my phone and turning it back on but it won't work. I'm not sure what else I can do to unfreeze it.
I've tried deleting apps pictures messages everything. I restored once and it was fine for a few weeks then it came back. Anyone have any suggestions?
Okay, so lets see if this works. So I've had my iphone 4 for about a year and a half, I've never really had issues beside the normal glitching and having calls drop here and there. Recently I've had an issue with my iphone connecting with just one individual. Yes, I know it sounds weird but keep reading. I have been able to make calls and recieve phone calls fine, however I cannot with just one single individual. They to also only have the same problem with me, however the only difference is they can hear me but I cant hear them or anything. We're able to text and send picture messages without any issues. Now sometimes when I try to call them, itll ring twice and then the line just goes dead, but thats usually them picking it up. I cannnot hear them at all. I've already done the reset on my phone and I've already contacted apple about this issue and their about as lost as I am because it doesnt make sense that this is only happening with one individual. I've also blew out the speakers and such like people have suggested. I use my head phones that came with my speaker, and ive connected and reconnected them incase my iphone thought they were plugged in. Let me give you a little bit more info. They have an android phone, we have the same carrier which is verizon and they live in another state (not sure if thats helpful). I'm completely lost because this has been going on for about 4 days now and its driving me crazy. This happened a few weeks ago, however it magically fixed its self ( im thinking it was because I had bad service). If anyone has any solutions that might help, please, please let me know.
So I had an iphone 4 which was configured to another network, a GSM network but now I have an iPhone 5 which is on AT&T's network. It seems that my iPhone 5 wont let me send picture messages unless its through imessage. Could this possibly be due to the network setting that were on my iPhone 4 ? if so how do i reverse this
Hello I have an iPhone 5 that I purchased upon release in New Zealand around December. Recentlly, more and more often, I will go to check messages or notifications on my phone by pressing the home or power button to wake it and display the lock screen (a simple enough task, one would imagine). However the screen will not show. They phone simply stays black. Sometimes I can press either button again and it wil wake, other times I will need to wait anywhere up to 10 minutes. I have tried factory restoring my phone to no avail. It is on the latest release of iOS and has had no water damage or major shock damage. Thanks for any help you can provide,Caleb

My iphone 5 is not making or recieving calls, but everything else works, including texting and receiving voice mails. I turned it on/off several times and checked my settings, but it still doesn't work.
I downloaded Quran Majeed Lite, after few months the app didn't work properly. I did write emails to app developers (Pakdata) and explained the nature of complain. Regret to inform that the developers never responded to my messages. How can I complain for the developer & get my refund.
