Icloud has not been turned on this phnoe either what els can i do?

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.
HelloMy son has typed in my passcode wrong on my iPhone 5 and it says 'iPhone disabled please connect to iTunes'I had rung O2, and they said that the only thing they can do is do a restore on the phone but then everything will be deletedI'm not bothered about the apps getting deleted, it's the photos and videos I am most worried about because they are of my 4 month old daughter since birth and these are the only photos that I have of her. I have only sent around 20 photos to family and friends so if I lose all these photos on my phone then I will only have 20. There are over 2000 pictures of her on my phone so I really really need to get them back I don't have iTunes, I have never downloaded it or anything. I have always taken my pictures off just by plugging my phone into the computer, going to My Computer and copy and pasting them like that but I have not done this in 2 months and there are so many photos and videos that will be lost.I downloaded iTunes, logged in using my email and password but every time I connect my phone it keeps saying for me to put my password in on the phone but the numbers aren't on the phone screen.Is there any way I can get my photos back?Can Apple get them back for me?Please help
I have recorded conversations on my iphone, and i would like copy all on my computer.But I can't find where there are ....I see only photos,not sounds ! Can somebody explain how i must to do ?
Hello to all! Am new to iPhone. Mt previous inexpensive had this feature: I could bar any number from which I get uneeded messages. I have tried to do so on my iPhone 5 and have not been able to find such a feature. Is there any such feature on this phone? If not, are there any apps for the same? Thanks in advance.
I lost my IPhone5 and after 7 hours I called lost and stollen and now I can't track where was the last location I left the phone ,and I don't remember if I stablished the find MY PHONE app.Is there any way that I can find the last location that I left it,eventhough I called in lost and stolen and reactivated my # to a different device.
I've had a flaky lightning connector on my iPhone 5 the past week or two, where the cord must be jiggled around to charge the phone properly, and it's continued to get worse. Just confirmed with Apple that it'll be getting sent back for warranty work this week (it's a first batch iPhone from Sept. '12), so I need to back everything up and wipe the HD. Last night I ran the battery down (bad idea) and it did something it's never done before - I got the flashing red battery symbol with the cord + lightning bolt. Tried charging it via wall adapter and USB to my MacBook, and of course, nothing changed, but I also am only guessing that it's charging because the connector is flaky. After reading some posts of others' ideas on here, I left it plugged in overnight, hoping that it's been charging, and now it's completely dead and unresponsive. When I jiggle the cord around I get no response. Is there anything I can do? Any hope of reviving it so I can wipe it out? If I use my "find my iphone" app will it still work on a dead phone to wipe it out?
Hi all, Haven't been able to find anything on this. I have an iPhone 4s which I had been using to iMessage over wifi with my friends while I'm in China (took out my Verizon sim card). I got an international (China Mobile) SIM card today after unlocking w/ verizon, etc. But now my old number is not "registered" with iMessage (I checked this in messages on my macbook) and changing my number in my phone isn't helping. Is there a way that I can readd my US number so that when people iMessage my US phone number it goes to my iPhone which is now a different, international number? My Apple ID still has my old number registered in it, but the Messages settings in my phone show the new international number without a means to add my old number. I'd rather use my US number over my Chinese phone number if theres a way that I can set it back to that number. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Yes trying to find out how I can change or delete my old credit card number to my new one or delete all together so I can't keep charging it to my old account and not my new account. Please let me know asap. Thank you
Why are my calendar entries doubled and my find iPhone and iPad quit working in the last 24 hours? What happened? I didn't change any settings. Thanks in advance for your help.
Through my gmail I received a notice that my iPhone 5 had been found in a certain location nearby. Is it possible that you continue doing this in the case it is found again?
I recently got an iPhone 5. Downloaded iTunes 11 and tried to sync my new phone. Once done I looked at my phone to find that all new contacts since October 2012 had been deleted along with any texts I had received and all the photos I had taken on my new phone. Instead I now have all my old photos and apps from my old phone. But nothing newer than October 2012. How can I get the new stuff back on my phone?
I have been using my iPhone 5's app Notes to dictate my inventory and send it to my computer rather than typing in everything... until today. The microphone icon in Notes is gray. I checked Messages and Mail to find that the microphone is operable within those apps. Where do I go from here?
Internet and texting working. Calls not working. Incoming outhgoing both. Rings but can hear anything on either sides. Please help!
I bought an iPhone 5 six months ago from Roger's Wireless and I also paid for the application of a screen protector, for a long time both of these worked very well and I had no problems. The other day I put my iPhone into my locker at work and came back a few hours later to find that two spots had appeared on the display. One was near the top of the screen and it looked like a dis-colored splotch while the other one, that was near the bottom of the screen, looked like someone tried to scratch the screen with a dull object . When I turn off the display and examined the outside of the phone there is no scratches or any other physical damage to the phone, I think it may have something to do with the LCD screen. Also, my locker was locked so I know no one was fooling around with it although humidity or something could have played a factor but I'm not entirely sure. The spots are relatively small but pretty annoying, before this my iPhone was in perfect shape . I'm not sure if I am covered by the one year warranty because my phone may have water damage (although I am not sure). I remember a few months back dropping it into a deep pile of snow and when I took it out it was pretty wet, but still continuted to work perfectly find. Regardless, I'm pretty sure thats accident caused the water damage indicators in my phone to be set off . I looked all over the internet and there is different ways of taking off the actual LCD screen and replacing it yourself but I think I would much rather get this done by a professional. I have also heard that the spots may go away eventually. I am not sure if I am going to send my phone in right away but any help at all would be awesome. Thanks!
I have multiple chargers for both my iPhone and iPad. Every time I need to charge one of them I have to swap adapters AND cords until I find a pair that works. For example; my iPad was charging with regular adaptor and cord, but I needed to charge my iPhone. When I hooked it up to the charger nothing happened. Samething with car chargers. I do see sometimes it will say accessory is not supportd with this device, but why wounldnt it be? Thats what its made for! I have like 10 different chargers so it's getting frustrating. That's enough info, so if u know please help me
how can i add a device on find my iPhone?
I am very disappointed to find that I can no longer use my iphone to find public transit instructions using maps. This was my go-to method of independent travel. Now that I've moved to a city I just found out that maps no longer will find me busses! I now have had to do research into apps, and use a combination of two apps as well as the metro system website to figure out a simple trip. What used to be one step has turned into many steps. What was apple thinking with this change????? I'm living in Seattle and so far have not found an app that performs all the functions of the old iphone maps.
I would like to see the call history for one specific number. Is that possible??...could do it on my blackberry, but can't find it on the iphone! Please help!!
Hi, so last week my phone suddenly turnt off. An hour later I could turn it back on, but then the next day the exact same problem and I couldn't turn it on. About 20 hours later and 5 programs I had fixed it. Then now, its 'died' on me again. Firstly, I have 100% battery. Connecting to my docking system turns it on but brings up the set up page (connect to iTunes on first use) It isn't recognised when plugged into the wall, I've used threee different wires and different wall adapters. iTunes can't restore it as half way through my phone cuts out and then iTunes can't find it. I don't touch my phone whilst connected so it's an internal issue there. I have tried other progams and they don't recognise my iPhone either. Could it be the battery? Should I replace it? Or could it just be loose? It's 2 years old, so yeah I need a new phone. But I currently can't afford to replace it, so I need as much help into getting this one working for now! Ha Ha Also, it's the iPhone 4 and it isn't water damaged.
Hopefully someone here can help me... My iCloud always shows my backup as being 4.8GB, even with EVERYTHING turned off. After downloading iOS 7 I figured out the problem: I have 4.8 GB of "Messages (Saved)". This is even after deleting ALL my messages. I'm not sure what this could be. I tried PhoneCleaner, i FunBox, and everything else I can find, but I can't find a way to access or view these messages to delete them. Could someone help me? I can't back anything up to iCloud with it like this.Note: this was happening even before i upgraded to iOS 7.
Need to find a way to let apple know that the "new look" for iOS 7 is old! and boring! Looks like it was designed by Microsoft !!!In lacks the human touch, Steve jobs would never let this see the light of day let alone promote it as something new!!!
no.If you did not install and activate find my iphone, you can not track it.
Hello everyone, I've recently got my WIFI slider greyed out. I was on a lower version than 6.1.3 before I got this issue, now after trying several resets and network resets and other stuff such as using the hair-dryer trick and freezer trick it didn't work. Now as I've seen in a tutorial on Apple it says you must go to Settings --> About --> Resets and then reset the network settings, but after doing that my Wifi-Adress stays with some numbers instead of N/A which other people gets, I still have a WIFI-Adress in it no matter if I reset my whole Iphone or not. Airpot has always been off, when I'm in the menu of setting Iphone up, it most likely skips the find wifi part where you connects to your WIFI. The Iphone it self has not even a scratch, I've not really dropped it before or anything, I've had it for some time now but not really got it damaged. So people, any ideas? It's running on IOS 6 6.1.3 now.
I would like to find a Bluetooth headset that will work with my iPhone and my iPad
I tried to update my iPhones IOS and when I did, it said that I needed to restore my iPhone, so I did, or I tried. When I went to restore it, it worked for a little while, then stopped and pulled up a error that says "there was a problem downloading the software for the iPhone, " iPhone " . An unknown network error occurred (9006). I have searched everywhere for a solution to my problem, to find no solution. I have tried uninstalling, reinstalling, turning in off firewalls, virus protectors, etc. I am very desperate to fix this problem because my iphone is a paperweight until this problem is resolved, please help me!

Finally upgraded to current iOS and noticed that the phone keypad background color is now white. I find the visibility/readability so much better in black (aka, the original design). Does anyone know if it's possible to change this back to black?
I'm trying to find out if apple gives you free warranty because my lock button messed up and I didn't buy the warranty
Last night I downloaded UVZIQ on my Jailbroken IPHONE 4S from Cydia and it asked me to Reboot the device.So I rebooted it and it turned on and lockscreen appeared but when I touched my passcode it wont touch and the home and power button stopped working.It then suddenly started turning on and off.What should I do now?
Hey, there: I have my phone set to back-up to icloud. I assume when it says "screen locked," that means the little toggle on the upper left. In any case, when I am in iTunes, I find my "libraries" file or whatever has all my voice messages. But where are the text messages? I want to both back them up and make hard copies, as I use them for things that need a record. I am of course being clueless. Thanks. Kenneth
I recently got the iPhone 5 from Tmobile. It's my first iPhone and I've been enjoying the features very much. The only problem I've noticed, and it's rather annoying, is a 4-5 second speech delay. I called Tmobile and had them send me a new one, hoping this was simply a defect of the particular phone. But I've just set up my new iPhone and it has the same problem. I've spoken to numerous people on Verizon, Tmobile, Sprint, AT&T, and landlines and have experienced this problem with each conversation. I have done this is different areas of my home as well as different areas around town with the same results.I've had many of them repeat words or phrases after I've finished speaking and the delay is always 4 or 5 seconds. Because of this, conversation is difficult. There is a lot of speaking at the same time due to this delay and I find it very frustrating. Before I call Tmobile about this phone, I wanted to ask if anyone else has experienced this issue. Is it a tmobile problem or an iPhone problem.
I want to restore my phone to that backup, but when I press Restore from Backup it doesn't show. I searched through Finder to find the folder with the backup and I have found it. I don't know why iTunes isn't recognizing that back up. Help!

Hello! I live in Singapore. Our service provider allows us calls to countries around the world at no addional cost if we dial 019 first. However, I can't seem to use it with Siri. If i want to call my brother in california, I would have to dia 0191818xxxxxxx It works when i punch it in, but siri won't actually make the call. says it's unable to. Same with anyone else overseas. (I live in this country alone.. all my family is abroad and I would like to be able to use Siri to make calls to family and friends internationally using 019). Please let me know if there is a fix for this. I wish Siri would just dial whatever number you tell it to without restrictions. Thanks in advance! Sagar.

Do the genius techs need an iPhone's passcode to swap out the display?
I am a developer, and have an iPhone 5 that I am trying to install the ios7 beta to. Being my first time doing this, I wasnt aware you would need the phone's UDID # before doing this. My iPhone is in recovery mode, but it asking me to register the iPhone on my developer account. However, to do this, I need the phone's UDID #... iTunes has it in recovery mode and won't show me it, I don't have the box, and the phone itself is in set up mode so it won't show me either! Am I stuck? PLEASE HELP! As of now, I have no idea of how to find it, I have googled a million times, and am exhausted and need to get my phone working. If anyone knows a work around, please tell me! I need the UDID NOW! Thanks,B-

I need help, my just turned itself off and now it won't turn on. I just don't know what to do? One moment it was on and then it just went dead. Please someone tell me what to do? I tried syncing it with Itune but my laptop won't recognise it. I haven't plugged with the charger but I doubt that will help. It was acting a bit weird before it turned off, like the applications kept on minimizing on there own and stuff. I had also accidently turned on guided assistence and forgot the passcode but after a bazillion tried I managed to put in the right code and I had hotspot on for a long period of time. Please anyone help me
