Can anyone help, how to import the contacts to I phone from samsung kies backup file
I try to avoid updates on my iPhone because it's either hit or miss and after the latest update that was released a couple days ago, my worst fear happened. It updated then I left it alone to update. After over an hour I come back and the "connect to iTunes" image appeared and nothing worked. Once iTunes was restarted it said I needed to restore my phone to factory settings. This is ridiculous and very frustrating. I'm not going to lie, several of my friends have samsung Galaxy S3's or Notes and they seem way more verstitle and reliable then my iphone. Any suggestions?
I have a VZW iPhone 5 activated as my main phone, I also have a VZW samsung Galaxy Nexus that I use a sim adapter and swap the sim to. When I swap the sim from the iPhone 5 to the Galaxy Nexus for a day or so then back to the iPhone 5, I cant pickup LTE signal, it just stay at 3G. Although if I put the sim back in the Galaxy Nexus it still picks up LTE. The only way i can get the LTE back on my iPhone 5 is by going into VZW and getting a new sim card activated, in return kills my old sim card. Any ideas or help?? Thanks
Hy, I was trying to syncro the new samsung PC with my iphone 5. Now, phone does not syncro and music in the phone does not play. Any tip?
This iPhone is not currently setup to work with carrier you're attempting to use. Please insert another SIM card from a supported carrier or request that this iPhone be unlocked.
the man on the phone told me to jailbreak my iphone so i could get iOS 5 back.. but by jailbreaking a phone you lose the warranty anyway... considering this is apple's fault (iOS 6 has ruined my 4s capability to connect to wifi) ( and my girlfriend has as 4s on iOS 5 and that still connects fine ) i think they should be doing more i am a long time apple customer but i think this has made me want to swap back to being a windows user and maybe getting the samsung or HTC
Can I schedule calls and block unwanted numbers like what my friend can do on his samsung s3 is there a app with out jailbreaking my iPhone , thanks
I just purchased the iPhone 5 coming from a samsung Galaxy S3. Where I work, I do not receive cell phone service so I rely heavily on the WiFi to receive emails and iMessages. I've noticed that if the phone sits for a few minutes, the wireless will shut itself off and as soon as I press the home or power button, the wireless kicks in and I get a flood of iMessages and an e-mail chime. On the samsung, there was an option to keep the wireless on all the time and my question is: Is there a way to keep the phone connected to a WiFi connection all the time so I don't get a delay in messages and emails? I know battery life will suffer and that isn't an issue to me. I just need it to stay connected so I'm not replying to messages 2 hours later when I pick up the phone. Thanks,
I got my very first iPhone in November 2012 I was totally converted, until I starte having issues with my iPhone 4S... I made an appointment with the Genius Bar in meadowhall sheffield who after 3 appointments and the phone still being broken did indeed replace the handset. The new handset I now have has started coming apart... Its never been dropped or damaged but by the way it's going in about a months time the phone is going to be in about 4 pieces. I went to the Genius Bar who told me it would cost me £139 to replace! But hang on this is not my fault and I have like 300 days left of my warranty!!I then called apple support who told me the guy at the Genius Bar had logged the visit as accidental damage and that I had told him I dropped the phone!! The lady on the phone made me another appointment at the Genius Bar and sent with with a case ID and said they would replace the handset as because of the phone coming apart I was now experiencing signal issues, dropped calls and a lot of hardware issues... Only to get there and then tell me there's nothing they will do unless I pay £139!!!I'm absolutely disgusted!!! This is not my fault.. It's a faulty handset!!! But yet I'm supposed to be £139 out of pocket!!! Makes me wanna actually walk into store put the phone on the side and tell them where to shove the phone and go buy a samsung! It's ridiculous!!!I really don't know where to go from here!Someone please help me :(
I currently have a several year old samsung Flyte phone. I am included with my wife's account under the AT&T family plan. My "line" has no data plan linked to it - her iPhone 4S and her sister's iPhone 3 do. The contract with AT&T for my phone/line expired several months ago. I'm thinking about upgrading to an iPhone 4, but I don't want to give up my existing phone number. And, I understand that the iPhone uses a micro SIM card - different that other manufacturer's phones. I'm pretty sure that I'll need to add a data plan to my "line" - not a big deal. Ideally, we want to add another line to the wife's plan (without data) and give the samsung phone to her mom, who lives with us. But, I do not want to loose my phone number. We want my new iPhone to have my existing phone number and the samsung for her mom to have a new number. Is this possible?
its asking me for a passcode i never setup...i cant reset my phone
I have a 2013 Buick Enclave with Pandora and Stitcher on the nav screen. With my samsung S3, Pandora automatically lit up and worked. with new iphone5, I was told I need to connect USB port to car and phone and start Pandora. That worked and the icon on screen lit up. but as soon as I removed the USB cord, Pandora and Stitcher greyed out and stopped working. I know it's supposed to work on the car's nav screen once I hardwire it (at least that's what I was told), but as soon as I disconnect, they stop working through the car. How can I install Pandora and Stitcher on my car WITHOUT having the usb cord attached? the idea is to be able to use the car's touch screen to control Pandora, but with the phone plugged into the USB port, I can only use the phone to control Pandora, which of course is dangerous when driving! And it worked correctly with the samsung, so I have to believe it can work with the iphone 5! Right? Thanks.
I purchased a new samsung laptop with windows 8. I have an iphone 5 and Im trying to sync the two. I deleted itunes from my old computer b/c my assistant was taking it over. When I check anything in itunes it give me a message that itunes will over ride my iphone with what is on the computer, which is nothing. I cannot figure out how to do this without deleting everything. Please help. Thanks.
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.

Does anybody have trouble pairing your iPhone or iPod or iPad with a Bluetooth speaker system?
it's that correct ??? " The Apple A5 is a System-on-a-chip package on package designed by Apple and manufactured by samsung. It combines an ARM Cortex-A9 with a PowerVR graphics processor. The chip is launched on the market with the release of the iPad 2 tablet. The Apple A5 was also inserted into the iPhone 4S and the iPod Touch 5th generation and then the iPad Mini. The successor to the Apple A5 is A5X a simple "evolution" integrated into third-generation iPad. This chip has a CPU "double heart" and a graphical "quad-heart." ????
Painful farewell AppleUnfortunately, the Apple no longer offers products awesome and unfortunately no longer apple interested in customers and move Apple to Warranty place Guaranty this will make us we drive to samsung and this is sad because iphne 5 can not be compared with samsung phones do not want new innovation we want a product we love farewell Apple will Buy Galaxy s4
Being the young tech savvy kid I jumped straight in for the iPhone 5 and frankly was quite excited and amazed but later annoyed my charger and cable were perfectly fine when taking out of box but a couple of weeks later I had problems my iPhone would charge for about 2-3% but then stop and wouldn't start for about 2 mins, I would take it out and then putting it back in but the it just doesn't charge I have the latest software iOS 6.1.3 and thought that would fix it( thinking it was software glitch like many other glitches I've had) but it didn't quite frankly I am definitely thinking of a samsung s4 as they promise more for less and dont have same problem also I am a dedicated customer and have a iMac desktop, a mackbook pro retina and a iPad mini and the Genius Bar me too wait for 2 weeks until they can get to me and that is public holiday so in theory it's about 2 1/2 weeks and I probably need a new cable but am not keen on getting new lightning cable for $30 thank you and hope u can give me answers to my problem soon thnx
How can I send sound from microphone to Bluetooth speakers? They work from the music app but not from an internal or external microphone. Is this a setup issue or is there a work around?
Hi I have an Iphone 4s running hot, I have followed the process's on here (backup and restore) and starting a fresh on the phone and still have the same issue. I have taken it to a local mobile phone dealer who has changed my battery and it still has the same issue, my battery is running hot like an application is constantly running. I am now booked into the Apple store next week Monday. I wanted to know, will this invalidate my warranty if I tell them I have changed the battery as I assumed it was a battery issue. It was changed by an approved phone dealership who is an accredited company for Nokia and samsung and also do Iphone repairs/replacement. I don't want to walk in there and them assuming the battery has been changed so they wont touch the phone now and say it is my fault. Thanks
I bought my iPhone 5 32Gb from the Apple Store in Hong Kong and had it shipped to the Philippines where I currently reside. I've read some issues regarding the iPhone 5 not being able to connect to the internet and having a very weak wifi range. I've dealt with the weak wifi range already but my problem now is: I accidentally pressed "Forget Network" (home wifi) at home and now I can't seem to connect again. My MacBook Pro, iPad and samsung S3 have absolutely no problem with connecting to the internet and it's just my iPhone 5 with the issues. I've tried Resetting everything but still cannot connect to my Wifi. It just keeps on saying "Incorrect Password" though I'm 100% sure that it is since all my other devices are working perfectly. Please help me. Thank you in advance guys!
I got my phone replaced under warranty last night and didn't have time for the genius bar to restore it for me. Now I can't restore from the backup of my old phone because it was running iOS 6.1.2 and this new phone is on 6.0.2. The setup process has the most recent backup grayed out saying its not compatiblemw the new phone. How do I update the iOS on theis new phone so I can then restore the backup from my old?
Hi, I've got a White iPhone 4 16GB Model and recently I've had trouble with it. First it started to drain the battery really fast so i decided to replace the battery but that didn't do the trick it still drained the battery. 15 days after replacing the battery i noticed the phone dumped its own operating system and reverted back to factory settings (iOS 5+ First time setup screen) i set the phone back up again and just left it. after a few months of not touching it, because i got 2 other iPhone's (4s & 5) that i can use i thought i would restore the whole OS using iTunes and hoping that would solve the problem but i cant get far as to loading iOS onto the phone. after extracting the software the phone restarts and displays the 2001 error. I have uploaded a video to YouTube to help with the diagnosis. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6J5K8kBblg P.S - If I'm correct, the phone might be un-repairable, unless i take it to the apple store?
After your latest update my battery drains faster that flash going around the world 8k times. I refuse to change my settings because this expensive telephone is supposed to be the best telephone in the market. I didn't buy an expensive device to keep its functionality at its 50% by disabling everything where the purpose of a smartphone is to be useful and smart. I bought this phone expecting to have a good experience and exploit every aspect of this to its fullest. On the other hand, samsung seems to treat their costumers as deserved ( friends are really happy with their Galaxy). Better get a solution because I am not only one frustrated and wanting to go over your competition. Thanks,A frustrated costumer
my iphone 4 was having battery issues, I thought it was because the phone was old I upgraded to a 5 and the battery is lasting me about 4 hours I restored from a backup, is this why? If I setup as new anyway to backup?
How do I know? Because I did not upgrade to 6.1.1, but rather waited for 6.1.2 so I could improve cell reception without battery drain. No such luck. My battery was great before without 6.1.1, and now with 6.1.2? 3hrs after charge to 100% I am at 24%. Previously I could go all day before getting to this point. APPLE YOU LIED! The update said fixes battery drain--not creates it! samsung here I come!
I have my Facebook account setup in the iPhone settings. Both Contacts and Calendar can access it to display their relevant information, but when some App Store app try to use the account, it always fails. For example, if I try to login to 9gag (using their app, not their website of course) using my FB account, the app says it cannot access the account – even though I authorized it. Same goes for BuzzFeed, or StumbleUpon (the latter doesn't even appear in the list of authorized apps BTW).Please note that I'm talking about the integrated FB login feature. Apps that redirect you to the FB website/app and ask for permission there are working just fine. I have a 3GS with 6.1 and both 9gag and StumbleUpon were updated in February 2013.
I recently updated to 6.0 on my iphone 4g. Since having updated my 4g cannot find any Wi-Fi signals. My wife's 4s is having no problem with our network. My 4g will not pick up known networks when typed in. I have Reset Network Settings and I have Reset All Settings. Nothing has solved the problem. I am going to go purchase a samsung Galaxy III if there is no solution by the time I head to AT&T tomorrow at lunch. I am disgusted by Apple updates. My wife previously had the iphone 4g and after an update it stopped turning on. AT&T had to upgrade her to resolve the problem. This is the second time we have had issues that render our iphones obsolete-- no more, enough is enough.
This is getting very old. Each and every software update I have done since buying my iPhone 4s about 10 months ago has resulted in "iPhone could not be updated. an error occurred" Today's attempt to update to 6.1.1 resulted in this message with (6) as the code (past update fails have resulted in other codes). My phone is now stuck with a black screen with the picture of the usb plug with an arrow pointed to iTunes (recovery mode). I love my iPhone, but the love is growing dim, since eery single iOS update has caused a similar error, each time requiring a completely reset of the phone, setup as new, restore - which get my apps back, but resets all settings (including email accounts). Yes, I synced the phone prior to trying to update. At this point, my apparent only avenue is yet another "restore" - a royal pain, and what should be totally unnecessary for a tiny incremental update (iOS 6.1 to 6.11). And yes, I was experiencing what I believe was the issue this update was to correct - cellular data issues (and actually - intermittent WiFi issues as well). What ever happened to Apple... it just works? And no, this iPhone has never been jailbroken (I have been asked). Next time there is an update available - maybe I should head to the Apple Store and hand it to a "genius" an tell him to update it...
I reported an iphone lost about 18 months ago, but i recently found it. I think it must have been blocked by the network provider i used to be with.Is it possible to get apple to unblock this? I erased all contents and settings and tried to set up as new iphone, and to restore it, but not getting snywhere, Itunes just tells me that it cant setup at this time From the startup option on the handset i can only get IMEI no, ICCID is unknown. Is it possible to determine the serial no??
I am trying to connect a iPhone 3 with an iPhone 4 using bluetooth so I can use the IP3 as a personal hotspot using a New Zealand prepaid Skinny sim (the IP4 has an Australian sim). I have paired the IP3 with my MacBook Pro and a samsung Galaxy using bluetooth and it works well as a hotspot. However the two iPhones can't discover each other ... is there a workaraound, eg an app that can enhance the very basic functionality provided by Apple? The phones are running iOS 6.0 and iOS6.1 respectively.
Hello everyone, I just purchased an Simfree & UNLOCKED iPhone 5 32GB from an Regent Street - Apple store in UK.The part number is MD299B/A. When I try to activate it with my iTunes, is gives the error below and does not seem to activate: "The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported. Only compitable SIM cards from a supported Carrier may be used to activate iPhone.Please insert SIM card that came with your iPhone or visit a supported Carrier's store to receive a replacement SIM card." Please help me...!!
Hi All, I have just received my iPhone 5 upgrade today... I currently have the iPhone 4 and have used the iCloud to backup my device, i also ran a local backup to my laptop for piece of mind. My question is:When the iPhone 5 launches its setup wizard and I select the restore using iCloud option, can I stop the Apps from syncing? I want to effectivly have a fresh iPhone with no apps but just copy over all my contacts, emails ect. I have gone into the Settings -> iCloud and a left everything on the inital screen onI then went to Storage & Backup -> Manage Storage -> My Device and turned off varuous Apps e.g. games I never play. Will this stop them from migrating to my new iPhone 5?Do I need to delete the Apps from iTunes as well?? Or is it better to clean up my iPhone 4 and delete any apps, run an iCloud backup and then just restore onto the iPhone 5? Thanks:-) I have read these KBs:http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2109http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4137https://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/ios.html Message was edited by: mehtaman
Iphone 5 screen is repeatedly unresponsive at the edges. This has ruined my enjoyment of this device. I cannot play my games properly at all. The first iPhone 5 I obtained through contract I went straight to Apple store complained and had it replaced only to discover exactly the same problem manifest in the device. If you try to slide the screen with icons below the level of the last row of icons it doesnt respond. This has contributed to the Iphone share price demise. Together with MAPS its simply unnaceptable that a company with billions of Dollars in cash could not implement proper maps OR mis the production checking for the less respnsibve screen. People have come to reply on these devices it is poor shoddy work to implement this slackness in a product that led the world so wonderfully in previous versions, now look.. samsung have caught up and are now the biggest phone maker in the world. That is not something Steve Jobs would have acepted.
Hello. I got a supposed to be "FACTORY UNLOCKED" iPhone 5 from the Apple Store yesterday I bought it for full price $649 plus tax, no commitment, no monthly payment, only the phone, but today when I want to use the phone and go into the setup process it asks me to insert a SIM Card into it in order to activate.. This is what the iPhone tells me "Activation Failed" "Please insert a SIM card" I can't even get into the Springboard so I have an expensive $650 bucks rock with me right now.. That means that the phone it's not unlocked at all? iPhone model is A1428. Thank you very much.
Ive personally come to the conclusion that the constant wifi problems (slow speed, dropping out, constantly having to enter wifi pasword) with the iphone 5 are a hardware fault and not simply a problem that can be fixed with a update. Ive had two iphone 5s which have both shown these symptoms, tried multiple routers (changed settings on these), changed the DNS, updated to the newest version of ios which was supposed to address these issues, tried on my friends routers with no avail. Personally I've had enough and just wanted too see if this is a major issue affecting others and if this has changed their opinion on the iphone, personally this will be my last because of this issue and will order the new samsung S4 if/when released. Iphone 5 anyone??
i have bought several songs and even cd's in the itunes store, but how can i use any of those songs as a ringtone?do i have to buy the songs again but then as ringtone?or how can i use my own music as a ringtone?never had this problem with other phone from samsung or htc
My iphone is imei unlocked with at&t's permission, but when i restore an actualize it my itunes stop working with my iphone. I need to make the setup to use my iphone, what can i do?
is there any way that a phone store can check that you have done this if you are returning the phone for other issues? (i dont want them to know i have plugged it in)and is there any way you can check there is nothing left on the phone? it is now at the start up screen for the iphone to setup
Apple is rubbish! my iphone speakers arent working! ive tried everything but nothing works! Apparently it has moist in it, but its never been near a pool or shower! I think apple is just ripping people off. Im better off getting a htc! or samsung!
On my iphone I installed Clash of Clans. On its first launch I got the push notifications popup: "Clash of Clans"Would Like to Send You Push NotificationsNotifications may include alerts, sounds and icon badges. These can be configured in SettingsDon't Allow / OK At first I didn't want them so I chose Don't Allow. Later I wanted them back anyway so I went to Settings > Notifications to turn the notification center settings back on, but they already were. I didn't get any push notifications though while the game was playing/running. Could that have anything to do that I denied them on the app's first launch? If so, how do I reset that? I tried using 'clear all settings' in the iphone settings, but that didn't help. Also tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but that didn't work either. Instead of starting over, the game continued from the last settings. Including levels, game setup, buildings, etc. When you accidentaly choose Don't Allow on such first push notification popups, how can you reset that. Or change it back to allow push notification permissions should you change your mind afterwards?

I am currently living in Botswana and it was working perfectly fine until yesterdayand suddenly from today after the ios 6 update it says sim not valid... what could be the problem?i cant even get through the initial very first welcome page because it says sim not valid. please help methank you.
Do I need my micro sim in to setup?
So I finally took the jump and switch from android (my old samsung Infuse) to a beautiful and amazing iPhone 5 - my experience thus far as been amazing and I can honestly say Apple has made a believer out of me - HOWEVER, all this Li-Ion battery guff has got me very paranoid. I must admit, like most android users, I was laxidasical with charging my android because I knew if the battery ever went belly-up, I could just swing over to my local AT&T store and pick up a new battery for $25, no problem. Now with the iPhone, thats a different story entirely. I know people have been arguing over this question since the era of Sodom and Gomorrah, but has any consensus been reached? - Is it okay to charge the iPhone 5, whenever I want to? - If it hits 100% should I unplug it, or is it safe to leave it there? - If I am spending a day at home (like a full 12 hour day) should I leave it plugged up? And for all those who answer "Unplug it after it hits 100%" won't that just waste the charge cycles? Can't you just keep it at 100%and only use a charge cycle when you need it? (I.E. go out) Sorry to be a stickler about this, but I am by no means a wealthy man and I wish to keep my shinies intact! - Thank you
