For 2 weeks know I have been having signal loss issues on my iPhone 5. The signal strength will jump from 1-4 bars and then no service sometimes. Most of the time it says cannot connect to data network. I live near a very strong AT&T signal tower and non of my other iPhones have this problem. Before my warranty ran out I contacted apple support to request a replacement. I got the replacement phone in the mail yesterday and did a clean install with no backup and this phone seems to have the same problem with the previous phone. Just today when I was leaving Denny's I got a message on my iPhone saying it was unable to connect to the data network. This happens no matter where I am. Even when I'm near the tower. Getting my 2nd replacement in the mail Monday. This is really frustrating going through replacement phones. Can it be a defective phone?
Has anyone seen this message pop up, 'Apple Security Flaw Announced' and if so, what did you do? I'm afraid to update to IO7, several friends say they don't like how their iphone 4S is operating since that update.
Every time I plug in my phone to charge no matter what charger i use a pop up message comes up saying This accessory ma not be supported. I click ok or dismiss like it says and it quits charging. It doens't matter if its plugged into the wall or my lap top or a desk top computer. I didn't have this issue until my most recent IOS update. Please help me fix this issue. Thanks Jodi.
I would like to know how do i show on the message app the amount of text messages i have not read
Assistance much appreciated!
why is there no message on hold app for iphone? 2 significant markets. first, individuals who want to share message or music with friends. but more importantly, for businesses who have bagged landlines and use smartphones instead. MOH systems only work with landlines and bulky external equipment. let's pick it up, people!!
What app can I use to block numbers that also will not allow the caller to leave a voice message?

i would like to share with you how i fixed my iphone 4s after ios 7.0.4 update and lose of wifi, bluetooth greyed out. Ive resolved the grayed out wifi bluetooth issue, i just wanted to share thia with you and hope it works for you as well. Firstly i was innocently upgrading a fully working Iphone 4s no problems ever, after the ios 7.0.4 update i lost all wifi and bluetooth which was grey out. After having contacted apple they told me like everyone else hardwear issues, i never beleived this from the start as the iphone previously worked fine before the update. Also if you check settings - General - about phone - wifi has no address where as before it was fine.I almost believe in my case the ios 7.0.4 has deactivated the wifi hardware by not re-entering a address upon updating as a issue. As the iphone is out of warrenty apple informed me if the item has a issue we could replace for £166 for out of warrenty, "what for downloading apple software thats prevented a perfect phone from working"! I informed apple this is a common issue and on the apple support communities site many people have this issue, the response was dont believe anything online. Literally i searched the entire internet for solutions, from trying to downgrade software and use tinyumbrellas software to alter the host settings to enable itune to download without a popup message of 'this device isnt eligible for the requested build' basiscally a block download. To more obscure solutions such as placing the iphone in a freezer or using a hair dryer. Please check these online for further reference. I would just like to share the fact if all else fails and you dont believe the obscure solutions work please have another rethinken, as they did in my case as id like to share my resolution with you.Please check online for further references if you prefer, but i to was doubtful about this idea and melting the phone etc. Fix iphone greyed out wifi bluetooth problem - worked on a iphone 4s with recent ios 7.0.4 update worked fine before update on 7.0.3 1.Place a hairdryer 6 inches away, apply heat for 10 sec. 2.Then remove for a few seconds BE CAREFULL KEEP CHECKING. 3.Then repeat, till phone gets hot and upon the screen the iphone will say to hot to use. 4.Switch phone off and let cool down. 5.When you switch on it reactivates the wifi hardware with the software and you can use wifi and bluetooth again. Im just a normal person thats had apple products for over 15 years due to being a designer, ive been messed about by apple and tried everything on the net and the only reason i post this is to offer a solution that may work for you as it did for me.If any one has another opinion then that is there opinion, but this worked in my case and what i state is my experience and thoughts on this issues.All i intend is to try and help others as other online advice helpped me.
I want to add photos to my iPhone from a folder on the hard drive. When I choose the folder and click "Apply" I receive a message that all photos from other sources (except the phone) will be deleted. Why? I don't want to delete the photos already on the phone, I just want to add more. Plus, I can't rename or delete any albums already on the phone. When I tap the Edit button everything grays out. And if I tap the album name the album opens; I don't get any opportunity to rename. Why has Apple made this so complicated? Can't the phone just show up on the desktop like any other device?
okay so all of a sudden my iphone4(yes it has the recent update), wont send pictures via text message or imessage. My MMS is turned on and they still wont send, im even connected to wifi. Everytime i try to send a picture, it tells me to download the picture and wont show it, then when i try to send it, it fails to send as a text message and imessage, please help!
can you see sent message you sent message you deleted on iphone 5 ? what are you steps to see?
I cannot imagine how this is possible yet it is happening. I am still getting every chat mesage delivered to my iPhone 5S with iOS 7.0.6 even after: 1.) Setting status to offline2.) Singing out3.) Closing the app4.) Performing a hard reset "hold down power and then home"5.) Disabling background app refresh (skype isn't listed here but better safe than sorry)6.) Settings -> Skype -> Disable "Sign In Automatically" At this point I am still getting every incoming chat message delivered to my phone. If I double tab the home key NO applications are open, all I see is my home screen. If I go and open the skype app I see the sign in screen. If I tape "sign in skype name" I see that my password is not even entered. How is this possible? What kind of a security hole is this when apps can run like this even after a hard reset and nothing appearing to be open. What's going on here? I rarely use the skype app because I hate having chat messages delivered to my phone, I just open it occassionally to make voice calls. It looks like I have to delete the app.
Hi, I have question regarding the functionality of iOS7 in comparison to iOS6: If you are on the phone and receive another incoming call, with iOS6 there was an easy way to answer this additional call with a message, saying for example "I'm in a telephone conference. I'll call back in a few minutes". With iOS7 I have no idea how to do this in the same way. I miss this message button. Obviously you are only able to send a message if there's no other "active" call at the same time. Is there another way to get this functionality back - like in iOS6? Thanks for any hint or suggestion.
My iPhone 4s (that I've had for just over 14mos now) has automatically tapped into my office's visitor wifi ever since we first established it in Aug2013. And then suddenly, last Friday, it dropped the connection. But that was merely the kick-off to my varied wifi troubles. Issues I have had since--*Greyed out Wifi switch in Settings menu [resetting network settings fixes this....but it later returns]* the "unable to connect to XYZ Network " pop up message*Phone is stuck forever searching for wifi networks *once connected to a wifi network, not being able to maintain connection for more than 5min Yes, I have tried rebooting...it sometimes helps...but ONLY TEMPORARILY. I have had these issues, in various locations since Friday [ at the office, and at the library, and at home.] Is there *ANYTHING* I can do? I am very reluctant to endanger my phone display /other components by putting it in the freezer...but yes, I've heard of that trick...haven't done it though. Besides...if the fix is some sort of trick of temperature , how long lasting could that possibly be?? HELP?? ANYONE??
I was updating to the new iOS (7.0.6) and I was connected to my main iTunes computer. There was no trouble downloading the actual software update, the trouble came when it was being installed on my phone. I was still connected to the computer and to iTunes, but after the iPhone 5 had re-started, it got stuck on the "Connect to iTunes" screen. I then proceeded to restore the phone, but there was an error message stating that iTunes could not complete the request due to an unknown error. Now my phone is frozen on the Apple loading screen (the apple with a loading bar at the bottom), and I am unable to fix it. What should I do?
I keep getting a message saying this e mail cannot be downloaded from the server-only occasionally and it does not happen on my IPad
I have now purchased my second lightning adapter (iPhone 5) which AGAIN prompts "This Accessory Is Not Supported By This Device" - Is there any kind of support that might save me another $40? I prefer to buy Apple products so as to avoid this same message with generic versions, but I am on my second charger which has had this same issue. I have a number of friends than can relate and stick to going to TJ Maxx to buy iHome / other random companies' adapters because they save money, and I'm wondering if I have any other option but to do the same. I don't rip my phone off the charger, or do anything outside of the charger's intended use Apple, so what exactly am I supposed to think other than that your product accessories might be poorly made? Thanks for your help.

I keep getting a new message that there is not enough storage in my iCloud account. I am aware I COULD pay an annual fee for more storage, but 5 gb is enough.Is there a way for me to delete my current backup, then turn it on again and back my current stuff up then? Will there be any comp,I actions? And will photo stream stop working when I turn iCloud off?
I have iPhone 5S with iOS 7.0.6 and Viber version 4.1.1Viber is running in the background and the iPhone is locked.Any incoming Viber call will sound the audible alert and there is a notice saying that there is an incoming Viber call. However there are no "Accept" or "Decline" buttons shown on the screen.When I enter the password to unlock the iPhone the Viber call is cancelled.When there is any standard incoming call the buttons are shown and ir work ok, even when the iPhone is locked.If the iPhone is unlocked, any incoming Viber call shows the buttons and everything works correctly.How can I get Viber to show the Accept and Decline buttons when the iPhone is locked?Any help you can give me will be very much appreciated.Thank you. Brian 1939 PS, an earlier posting shows that this problem has been solved. This is incorrect. I still have the problem. I somehow made an error. My apologies.
When trying to fix the problem I signed out of the old iCloud account on my phone and computer, created a new account and then registered my phone and computer to this new account. I also made sure to check that send/receive was only for my phone number and Apple ID email. I want to make sure that she can no longer access my old and new messages. Thank you!
I am trying to manually back up a different phone to my old phone and the message is there is not enough space to do this, so how do I create enough space to do this ?
I've noticed my 16 GB iPhone's "Other" category is nearly 6 GB in size but have no idea how it got that large -- I've heard it could contain app junk files, cookies, text messages, voicemails, etc. Looking for ways to clear up the "Other" category, I stumbled across this Mac app which claims it can reclaim drive space. Has anyone had experience with this app? Thanks,Chris message was edited by: OMMBoy, to update URL
When I first got my phone it worked perfectly fine with the wifi. Although later on I began to have problems connecting it. It will randomly disconnect from the wifi and when I try to retype the password it tells me it is wrong, although it is right. It will eventually work but in its own time, a message will pop up and allow me to type in the password and it will work. But sometimes it takes an hour or more and sometime it takes 10 minutes. I've seen where other people have had this problem but I don't know how to fix it. I'm not sure if it's an issue with my phone or if it's with my wifi. Does anyone know how to fix this?
When I plug my phone in, to a socket or laptop, the Apple logo just flashes on and off repeatedly, and when I unplug it the phone just stays off; I can't get it to turn on at all. I've tried to restore it through iTunes but that's not working. An error message just appears after "extracting the software" and my laptop makes a disconnected USB sound and then a connected USB sound (if that makes sense). It says error 21. Apparently that means there's a hardware problem. Is there any way I can fix this myself or do I need to take it to an Apple store??
I keep getting the following message when I try to sync my iPhone…"The iPhone “ iPhone” cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all of the items in the iTunes library (additional 680.1 MB required).". Where do you go to fix this? Cannot find anywhere.
My professor downloaded our assignments using Power Point. I'm trying to listen to and view the Power Point presentation on my iPhone 4 and I keep getting the following message: Download Failed (Error 102)
I can not use the app store: I keep getting the message "This apple id is not yet been used in the itunes store. Tap review to sign in,then review information." But when I hit review, it takes me back to app store.Help!
Hi! I have an iPhone 4S and from two weeks ago since yesterday it wouldn't get recognized by my MacBook Pro and neither by my PC... In these two weeks I replaced the charger port inside the phone and two cables... Yesterday I finally got it recognized on my MacBook while running TinyUmbrella, but, in iTunes said something like I need to connect the device so iTunes could see it (***?). Ok, on TinyUmbrella I pressed Enter Recovery (I was thinking to put the iPhone in recovery mode so I can restore it and posibly get it recognized by iTunes) - bad choice. Since then my phone is stuck on "Connect to iTunes".. I tried to hard reset it, it didn't work, I tried various programs ( iReb, RedSnow, TinyUmbrella, iFuntastic, DrFone, FixRecovery and so on), it didn't work, I tried to uninstall iTunes on both computers and put an older version, it didn't work, I tried on a friend's laptop with fresh installed iTunes (Android user) on it and guess what? It didn't f****** work. P.S.: I run iOS 7.0.4 I really don't need people here posting that they have the same problem, I need a solution before I will smash my phone with a hammer.
please help ASAP!!!!!!! trying to update tonight for mother-in-law, she has an iphone and wants it updated. It says we have to restore the phone first, this message has popped up many times and i say yes to restore it.
When people with iPhones try to text me, it sends as an iMessage but says "message not delivered". I have done the following: -Disabled iMessage on my iPhone 4S and Macbook-Disabled my phone number from my apple id-Unregistered my iphone from my apple id-Had people delete their convos with me and start new ones using my phone number instead of my contact name And peoples messages still (do not) send as iMessage. I'm lost. Apple's support was useless, they wanted to charge me $35 for support (I didn't). I'm super frustrated and I'm done with apple. But has anyone else had this exact problem and fixed it?

I was wondering if the iphone people have ever considered the idea of putting an optiong of having a text message signature on the iphone. I love my iphone but i liked how my old phone had the option to put a signature. You know the thing that is sent at the bottom of every text message unless you take it off. Do the apple people read these discussions cause i would really like for them to consider doing this on the next software update

Today my iphone 5 started having a blue highlight box appear on every screen, jumping from one icon or set of icons to another with an audible click. My iOS is up to date and I first noticed this after receiving a text message (text only, no attachments).
I receive a text message an hour after it was sent. I can not send a message from my iPhone no matter what. Restarting it is not work and turning SMS on and off isn't working either.
Last night, I was having trouble getting my iphone to send a few messages. The messages were to 2 different people who both have iphones too. They showed the sending line and it never finished. I would look back and see the message failure icon a few minutes later. It offered try again, which I did. After 3 tries, one sent but even still this am, the other will not send. I got a text from a friend this am, who is not on an iphone, and is on a very basic phone, and I was able to reply to her and it sent. The message that did send, finally sent as a text message. It was to my daughter and ususally they go through as Blue. I realize they can change between blue and green and I would appreciate knowing what causes the changes. The second message that is blue and will not send is to my son. Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong? It is so odd. Michelle
