Hi there, I've suffering from a call receving problem which is - Example - I have a contact saved at my phone "Mr. A" - 01619001234 [country code not present]But when i got call then it comes for - +88 01619001234, so its not showing Mr. A is calling. There are some numbers on my contact which contains country code (+88) and some of them not. So, how can i add country code number to each phone number while country code not present? Like - Mr. A - 0161 900 1234Mr. B - +88 0161 900 4321Mr. C - +21 897 456 212Mr. D - 02 723456 91 I want those number like this - Mr. A - +88 0161 900 1234 - will add country codeMr. B - +88 0161 900 4321 - will remain same as country code present and starts with + signMr. C - +21 897 456 212 - will remain same as country code present and starts with + signMr. D - +88 02 723456 91 - will add country code I hope i am clear to you. I need help asap. I tried International Call Editor (ICE) apps, but it renames contact while country code present and also it need to select one by one. Thanks in advance

I'm planning on buying the iphone 5 because I have an upgrade available. I have never owned an iphone before, but I do have an 2gn ipod which has 8 gbs and has 2 apps and have used 5.5 of my 6.84 gbs available with songs(1175 songs). I have also have 30 photos, and have 1.5 gbs left to fill. If I do get the iphone 5 I will not put music on it, because I have my ipod. I would like to have a lot of apps though, because I like to test them out, and give reviews on them. I have a fair amount of photos in my current phone(around 400), but the camera quality is not that good, and I think because the iphone 5 have a lot more gbs than my current one that I will want to take more than I usually do(although I would probably upload them onto my computer and delete the originals off my phone). I don't have that many contacts and I have a tablet where I play my games and movies on, so that is not an issue. I know this is a bit long but I really want to make the right choice because I plan on having this phone until my next upgrade which is in 2 years. I want to know if 16gbs should be enough or if should I go with the 32gbs? OR if I should just wait for the newer version to come out, and if this is worth to buy. I would also would like to know what the perks and downsides are too. Thank you for your patience and time.
I have just started to update the latest iOS 6.1.3 and my wifi disconnected and all of my contacts have been deleted. My phone has not updated to ios 6.1.3 as wifi stopped working. I have never backed up on iTunes on a computer, I always download everything directly from wifi onto my iPhone. Can I get my contacts back? If I can, how? Please help!!
My 4S Iphone would not sync although it would charge when i connected it to my computer. I got help from an apple representative who walked me through syncing with icloud to get back my contacts. My phone wil not hold a charge since then. Apple diagnostic said the battery was perfect??
Okay so my phone is in a kinda phone coma but thats not the point, the point is that it can sync with iTunes and it can also backup, so I want to know is there a way I can see all my contacts names and numbers from my computer and NOTE I backed it up to the computer.

My iPhone constantly says not enough storage available but I barely have anything on my phone and its 16 GB. I have only about 7 apps that i use, 200 photos, less than 100 contacts and my music is only about 3 GB. The other unavailable space is a mystery. And i ive deleted so much already.

I work my self by an Apple Reseller and no one of my collegas can help me out!*the problem is not coming from my contacts Book or Settings because everything is perfectly configured and this error is recent !Thanks.

How can I transfer my contacts from Motorola android to iPhone 5
Can anyone help, how to import the contacts to I phone from samsung kies backup file
Okay so first my iPhone 4s had a storage problem. So I bought an iPhone 5 and restored my old settings to the iPhone 5. Sadly that carried over the storage bug to my new phone. I went and reset all of the factory settings and started from scratch. I have now fixed my storage problem, but I made this a new iPhone, and did not restore from a back up this time. I set it up with the same phone number of course, expecting it to take in my contacts from my cell phone number. I sync everything, and my contacts are there. But they aren't MY contacts....they're my mom's.... So how can I get rid of her contacts and import mine. I tried turning off iCloud contacts and deleting them, and turning it back on. But its the same. Help!?
I'm a noob here to using Game Center, as I've always used FaceBook. However, I'm looking to add new friends (neighbours) for The Sims FreePlay game. None of my contacts use Game Center, however.I couldn't find a 'add me please' Thread here.Maybe this could be one?
I just bought a second hand (perfect condition) iPhone 4S today, the user sold it because they had upgraded to an iPhone 5. The previous user did not restore the phone they just deleted all of their previous data (contacts, pictures, applacations, they left their 1,100 songs though), so I planned on restoring it later tonight to start fresh. I had it activated to my phone number at the Verizon store on my way to a family party and used it throughout today but put barely anything onto it knowing I would be restoring it tonight. I got home and plugged it into my laptop and went to iTunes found "Emily's iPhone" and then hit the restore button like normal, it worked perfectly fine and went the whole 14 minutes it said it had to. Then my phone went to the "connect to iTunes" screen when it was already connected. I checked to make sure everything was plugged in correctly, and it all was perfectly fine. I tried the manual reboot (holding the home and lock buttons for a few seconds) and all it does is shut off and bring me to the same "connect to iTunes screen".. someone please tell me how I can restore my phone! Thank you, Emily
after getting a new iPhone 4s I did a sync with my computer to get my contacts and pics back on my phone. after the sync, there are pics on my phone I want to delete but I can't delete them. Some of the pics were never on my phone but were on my computer. There is no trash barrel or any options to be able to delete them when I click on them.
Ever since I updated my iphone 4 (GSM) to ios 6.1.3 i have been unable to 'text' people in my contact list. - I can only text new numbers that aren't in my contact list? (Even if i try and type my friends number, instead of selecting their name, i am still unable to text them - it comes up with ERROR) I can only send imessages, successfully, to people in my contacts list. Please HELP! Thanks in advance.
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?
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!!
i cant seem to find a way to get my contacts from my gmail account onto my iphone 5
I Need Help . We Are Sharing contacts
When I was synchronizing my new iphone 5 with itunes, I lost all pictures in my iphone. I tried to copy contacts from old iphone backup to new one. Itunes copied all contents of old iphone to new one. All the pictures have been removed taken by new iphone. There is no backup file on computer related new iphone. Is there any way to recover all deleted pictures? thanks for your support!iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.2
HELP!!! I lost all my contacts for no reason, I was sending a text when my phone (with about 80% power) turned itself off, I turned it back on and all my contacts were gone! In my messages it was just numbers, no names. I went on itunes to restore from backup but it wont let me, nothing comes up. When I right click my device the only option is get is to back up, it wont let my restore from back up. The only thing I can do is restore to original settings but I want my contacts!!! Can someone help, I need all my contacts for work!!!!
That would be all 300+ connected Facebook contacts. Going through one by one would be madness and I really do not want to disconnect FB from my phone. Is there honestly no way to turn off calendar notifications for birthdays alone?
The option to update without the computer (Over the air) was made available with iOS 5. If your iDevice is using a version of iOS lower than 5, you will need to use iTunes on your syncing computer to perform the upgrade. Use the Apple link below as a guide for the upgrade. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4972 Also read the instructions from the section entitled "Update your device using iTunes" at the link below. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4623
I have already an iPhone 5. I use it with more than 900+ contacts, 5 email accounts from different providers actively, many apps, and with all a real life companion sure however, I need a second to use with a different telephone operator. I would like to have all my apps, contacts, emails, and everything there, too, like a mirrored one. One is in my left pocket one is in my right pocket.. Is that possible? If possible, how can I do it? Should I use it as another iPhone with another Apple ID or how it goes?? Any negative / positive points? Thank you, RomerQ
I have an old 3G as well as a 4S. Initially I set up a separate iTunes account for the 4S as I was worried I'd lose my old apps for 3G (as older, compatible versions aren't kept in the iTunes store so once they're gone, they're gone...). 3G is set up to sync with iTunes, 4S is inly syncing mail and conatcts through Exchange but hasn't been synced with an iTunes library for the reason above. Is there a way to sync both phones off the same iTunes account, so I can set up each phone with some music, as well as apps, without iOS 5 versions overwriting the exisitng apps for the 3G? To complicate things further, I don't want to sync photos, contacts, messages, etc. I just want to avoid having to duplicate all my music and pay for all the apps all over again. Suggestions? Cheers
My friends are texting me and what one says shows up in the other's conversation? How do I fix this?
my contacts list is now just numbers. How do I fix?
i did a update, and lost my contacts, how do i get them back?
I have found a lot of app fro locking pictures and files, contacts, etc, Is there a way of locking down a folder that contains apps? Say i don't want someone opening my facebook app or other apps I have. Any help is appreciated.
I have an iPhone 4S, about a year now. Yesterday I downloaded a Facebook update and went to sleep. Wake up in morning and Facebook app is missing from phone. It was on my front page, next to a blank spot, and now there are two blank spots in the bottom right of my front page. Here is what I have tried: -Resetting phone (home+on/off button). Reset 3-4 times, nothing.-Reinstalling app. Looked up Facebook app in app store, and shows as being installed. So there is an "Open" button where there would be an "Install" button if I did not yet have the app. I click the "Open" button and it does nothing, like it's a dead button.-Searching for Facebook. On the iOs "Search iPhone" bubble (swipe right on home screen) I search for Facebook. Nothing shows up but contacts.-Synching on iTunes. App doesn't show up on list, tried a synch, reset phone, nothing worked. I have 111 apps installed across 7 pages (with a few blank spots scattered across). I do not and never had "Restrictions" enabled. I have not changed any other settings anytime recently. I have 4 gigs of free space on my phone. Any guidance here would be appreciated...thanks!
I woke up this morning to my phone automatially shutting off on its own. So once back on I got in my recent calls and text messages and there's just numbers but not matched up to any names. And when I go into my contacts its says I have none. I tried backing it up on my mac but my boyfriends contacts sync instead since he loses his phone constantly. I dont have mobieme or icloud. Is there anything I can do? Even if it requires going to the verizon or apple store?
i have upgraded and did a back up from my 4s but when i restored to iphone 5 it has lost all of my contacts, emails and messages anyone know how i can retrieve the info? i still have the 4s so i can also do another back up i guess, is that worth trying?
So some of my contacts erased on their own. Also, i erased some contacts but they keep reappearing when i dont want them to. Why does this happen and how can i fix it?? When ever i erase a contact i see the downloading circle next to the wifi symbol as if it was syncing?
I've had my 4S since January 2012. All was well for about a year, and then the fun began.1) When the weather got colder (Less than five or six degrees), the phone would suddenly claim to have a flat battery, and turned itself off. Plugging in an external battery pack brought it back to life. Taking it back inside a warm building would bring it back to life again. 2) About twice a month, it crashes, and wipes all my contacts/calendar data. I started backing up to iCloud, so then it would restore from there, but muddle my contacts' photos up.3) It refuses to sync with iTunes. It says there's not enough memory. Sometimes on the phone, sometimes on my PC.4) At least once a day, it loses the ability to join any mobile network. Turning it off and on again usually allows it to rejoin my network (T Mobile).5) Instead of T Mobile, it randomly likes to show my operator name as 000-0000.6) It helpfully closes all my Safari tabs if I minimise Safari and use another app.7) The GPS is failing, which is a real nuisance because I use Nike+ for my daily jog. T Mobile's tech help were not very much help as soon as they realised I'd had the phone for over a year, and was therefore no longer covered by their warranty. They reckoned it was a hardware failure. I've purchased Apple Care today, and booked a Genius Bar appointment for Friday. Does anyone have experience of any of these problems?
I downloaded facebook to my iphone and lost all my data. It then slowly came back except I lost all my phone/contacts. Then my phone got disconnected. My provider Optus re-connected my phone and don't know who or why it was disconnected. I still have lost my contacts. Now when I use another phone I get the msg that there are 3 on the conversation and also with my mobile number not displayed I get the number showing "Wombat Service" what does this mean? Is my phone being used by another person? and have they taken my contacts? Not sure what is happening but my phone is playing tricks on me. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not send or receive msgs? Could you please explain. Thank you. Annie
I dont know how that happened i was talking on the phone after i finished my call i went to the contacts in my phone and the all gone and turned to be emile's address instead of my contacts numbers. BUT the problem now i cant find my contacts anywhere. PLEASE help i need them so bad
When i deleted my friends old number, i deleted her contact all together and created a new contact with her new number. Now when i go to create a text when i type in her name it brings up both numbers and i cant seem to permanently delete the old number from that list. But when i check contacts there is only one number there which is her new one i saved.
There has never been a facetime icon on any iphone. As the manual explains, open contacts, select a contact, scroll down to Facetime button
Just been to the Apple Store in Stratford, London to get my iphone 5 replaced as the sleep wake button stopped responding. I was in and out and i was done. The member of staff who served me seemed very rushed and i didn't have his full attention so when we were going through the process it was a bit more unpleasant than usual. My concern is, when he asked me to erase my phone, i by mistake erased all my settings, rather than erasing all my content and data and due to his rushed manor i didn't get a chance to double check, then my old phone was in a box and under the counter. I didn't realise this had happened till i was on my way home, can anyone tell me that my phones content will be erased? as i dont particulirly want some apple repair guys prank calling all mny contacts, if anyone could reasure me with this, that would be great and put my mind at rest. I did try and erasing it through find my iphone app but of course the sim card needed to be in the phone for it to connect to the internet. Thanks, any help would be very much appreciated! Sam D
Pls help me! Or I am screwed!!! The back up files got corrupted and I don't know how to fix them and me and my bff's fave foot was there and my moms job rely's on those notes and contacts! Pls :'( oh and I literally cried for 2 hrs. 10 pm to 12 am
I communicate a lot with a friend who has an android phone we just realized that phone has been hacked and most likely has installed spyware in it.; we communicate a lot through various apps like Whatsapp, Viber, and TextPlus... Is my phone data (photos, messages, contacts) compromised by the Android phone being hacked? Please advice Thank you,
I just installed the new software for the iphone. However it appeared to erase all my old contacts, messages, calls, and picture. Is there anyway to get it back?
Since the ios6.0 update, deleted contacts can't be deleted from the new message case. It is amazing that more people are not aware of the problem and are speaking out about it. As a professor, I have new students whose contacts I input into my iPhone each semester after sending a text mail the contact cannot be deleted from the "new message" cashe. It can be deleted from contacts but remains in the cashe. The only way to delete the cashe is a full restore. Resetting does not even work. Restoring is a horrible way to delete contacts permanently. I have contacted Apple repeatedly. They are aware of the problem but do not seem to be concerned. With each update, I expect the bug to be fixed. I hope to get the attention of Samsung with this. I know they could create another embarrassing ad campaign and Apple will resolve the issue in seconds. Apple is not the great company it used to be.
I have been having an issue with the memory on my iPhone. The "other" is filling up all of my space. I tried restoring but it hasn't fixed the problem so now I want to restore for a new phone but I am worried I will lose all of my contacts. If I have backed up my phone on my computer will my contacts be OK? Pleas help!!
Apple's support website has useless information. apple has created a buggy update and knows it. but instead of fixing the problem, they provide you a workaround, which does not take into account lost data (ie photos, contacts, etc.) how stupid is that?
I switched from an Iphone 4S to a 5 yesterday. My contacts did not all switch. The volume keeps resetting to the lowest amount. When I set the volume to high, it does not set Siri's to high. I can barely hear Siri. I used ITUNES for a backup on my 4S. Most of my apps wouldn't transfer, it said not enough room. All my songs are greyed out and not playable. I am using the same ITUNES account. This is a NIGHTMARE. All my email settings will not stay. The programs keep asking for the passwords, even though they have been entered multiple times. I read the email, then the next time I open the email account it prompts for a password. I HATE THIS PHONE.
My Iphone 4S contacts got erased fully after a forced restart. How can I recover my contact list?
This morning I woke to see that all contacts have been deleted. Is there anyway I can retrieve the lost contracts without iCloud? I ask as my Macbook no longer syncs with my iPhone or iTunes
