Hi there! There are troubles with Facebook Push notifications on my two iphones 4 (iOS 6.1.2) and 4S (iOS6.1.3) and on my Macbook Pro 15 (OS X 10.8.3). There are no any push notifications about new messages or "likes" by integrated Facebook App and by Facebook app prom iTunes too. I have notifications in notification center about statuss updates and comments, but sounds there are no at all. Everything in settings are switched on:-Settings/Facebook-Settings/Notifications/Facebook-Facebook/Account Settings/Notifications/Mobile Push I have done anything i can. Signed Out from all apps, deleted Facebook App, swithed off and then swithed on notifications, Signed In again and again. What can i do to solve this problem? I realy need notifications about messages on iOS and OS X.
I bought an iPhone 5 last month, for starters, i didn't notice that the Power Button was compressed as in its still working but just, it doesn't have the 'button click' feel like a normal iPhone. Recently my friend bought an iPhone too, when i compared our iphones, i found out that his iPhone's Power Button has a 'pop up' feel where mine is compressed. I'm from Kuala Lumpur and the place i bought it in Johor. Can i know whether can i get a repair or replacement for it? Who should i contact to do so? Note: i bought it in a small DIGI shop in Johor. And, i heard that iphones bought in small retail shops cannot be replaced/repair/etc.
Hello,I am newbie, so sorry if I am asking stupid question, I do have iphone 4 and I am very satisfied with it. Just I wish it had a better camera. Is there any way that I can take off iphones camera and swap it with a camera from samsung galaxy? what about swaping with iphone 5's camera?thanks in advance
I contacted Orange UK and they said that this iPhone4 is ready to be unlocked, but they can't unlock the phone because I am not the original contract owner. Why can't Apple unlock this phone, because the original owner doesn't care and has sold it? As far as I understand, I am one of at least 3 owners for this phone. I guess there could be more. I just wanted to have a normal iPhone, why can't Apple help on this issue? I have previously had many apple products, this is the first one I bought used adn just wanted to restore it to normal. Another thing is that 3rd party services can unlock it for 200$. What is that they do to unlock it? Why can't apple make a small comission for unlcoking iphones instead. People find ways to cheat and ripoff people who doesn't deserve to pay extra for the phone they bought.

hey! i upgraded to an iphone 5 in october 2012. ive always had the iphones and never had a problem with them before. however, this phone has decided it no longer wants to charge, at first i thought it was the usb so i brought a new one for it. but it didnt charge it either. i have tried using different sockets ive even used my dockinstation but nothing works. the phone is all up to date and shows a message stating 'this accessory is not meant for charging' , anyone else having the same problem?
hi guys. i can see this is a common issue. i have heard a few different reasons about why this is happening. either it's the autofocus mechanism or the vibrate motor.whatever the reason, this should not be happening on a £600 piece of hardware. the quality control at apple is not what it used to be and when they are rushing to manufacture millions of devices to tight deadlines in china then this is a problem that was going to happen sooner or later.i am of the opinion that this is a fault with possibly more than 50% of all iphones manufactured to date and apple needs to do a product recall. it seems that they have told staff to not admit this as a fault to try and avoid just that.i got a replacement and it arrived, the rattle was slightly less noticable but definitely still there. i just ordered another replacement and will continue to keep doing so until i get a device that doesn't rattle.before anyone says that this is normal and it is SUPPOSED to rattle, that is BS. i have been to the apple store in brighton and tried the display models and even tried a few they had in the back after speaking with a staff member. out of the 12 phones i went through, 2 didnt rattle AT ALL. Now you tell me if that is normal and people should just put up with the substandard product that apple has churned out this time. I say NO, and the more people that actually make a stand, the quicker apple will be forced to spend some of their $600B on fixing this issue.
How do I print my contact list from my phone
Hello everyone! I've got a problem with my iPhone 4S and I hope someone here can give me a hint on how to fix this... Last year in March I was on vacation in Las Vegas (I live in Austria/Europe) and bought a new unlocked iPhone 4S GSM in the Apple Store in the Forum Shops in Las Vegas including AppleCare+ (I just learned that iphones can only be serviced in the Country where they are bought - my bad). Lately I was browsing through my Apple support profile and noticed that my iPhone was not registered there. So I tried to enter the serial number of the device and got this message:We're sorry, but this is a serial number for a product that has been replaced. Please check your information and re-enter your serial number. If your information is correct, you may need to contact us. I knew this could not be true so I called Apple Care here in Austria and first I was told that - according to its serial number - my iPhone has been replaced, and that it never should have been sold. I also was told that I have no chance of getting any service for this device despite the Care Protection Plan because the device is invalid due to its status as "replaced". And last but not least I was told that I could never receive any service for this device because American devices cannot be repaired in Europe (I was not aware of this fact and would have expected the salesperson in the Apple Store to tell me because I definitely told him that I am from Austria). Meanwhile I wrote an email to the store where I bought the iPhone from but it's two days now and I have not received an answer (or any indication that my email was received) yet. Is there anything I can do? Yours,Michael
I bought my Iphone 5 from Apple when it was first available. I have had an ATT acount for many years along with an MSN email account. I have had issues with sending email from my IPhone 5 since I have recieved this phone. I have deleted and readded the email application numberous times(sometimes 10 times a day), I have reset my phone a number of times, I have also changed my email password a number of times and readded to both my incoming server and outgoing server passwords. I have spoken to ATT tech support, Apple Tech support and Msn tech support multiple times, they have not been able to help me. I sometimes have gotten it to work for a few minutes to a couple of hours but as soon as I try to send an email from my phone again it will no longer send an email from my phone. I use my phone for work and this is very annoying as I have to use my email for work.I need help! I have had iphones since the first Iphone and Mac computers for over 10 years but I am now over it, at this point I would not recommend iphones. I am now at the point of buying a phone that I can use and it will not be an Apple Iphone.
I am tired of my iPhone 4S already after suffering through issues upon issues with the device. My screen is having issues now where at a moment's chance it goes dim. I have to reset the device to get the brightness back to normal. I've tried restoring without any luck of this resolving. Another gripe I have is that I'm continuing to have issues with apps like Mail, Safari, and other Apple installed apps just continuously force closing. I've been sending emails back and forth on my iPhone only to have Mail force close and I lose everything in my message. The phone acts sluggish and performs worse than previous 4S devices I've owned. I've had issues upon issues across multiple iPhone 4S devices. The device I have currently is my 5th iPhone 4S and even tho its less than a few months old after it was sent to me after multiple filler iphones of refurb models from the store, I continue to experience issues that make me use my iPhone less and less as it becomes more unreliable with the crashes and multiple restores. My closest store is not within close distance so that's made owning an iPhone with issues difficult as not every thread on the communities forum touch on half the problems I continue to have. Thankfully at least Siri knows where I'm located compared to my other devices where she always thought I was in Pittsburgh where I picked the phone up at my nearest store over an hour and a half away. Now everything just seems to be more of a deficiency with iOS and the hardware than anything. Obviously there must be something wrong with the latest stocks of 4S devices if my issues are continuing. When I restore I'm always setting up as a new device. I'm never downloading or redownloading anything from my Mac or PC. Everything is just redownloading apps from iCloud within the App Store and having a ton of missing photos in my photo stream. I just don't understand what is wrong with my iPhone. I never experienced these kind of issues with my iPhone 3GS so its hard to swallow how terrible the 4S has performed with every single device I keep getting. I'm at a loss on what I can do. Does anyone have any tips I should try that Apple hasn't provided me with to fix or at least band-aid the issue long enough till I can upgrade with my carrier?
Hi, i am trying to pair my 2 iphones both iphone 5 using bluetooth to enable file transfer between them.But when i turn on the bluetooth under Setting->Bluetooth. Both devices are unable to discover each other. Please help. Thanks
Hi, I have an iPhone 4S with wifi button grayed out similar to the case here http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1559andhttps://discussions.apple.com/thread/4638071?start=0&tstart=0 I already performed a network reset, reset to factory setting and updated eveything via itunes. I know that its most likely a hardward issue as stated in the forum. Now here is the problem. I bought the iphone from a local (philippines) online reseller http://lazada.com.ph. Lazada would only give the the apple 1-800-1441-0234 number and will not accept any repairs and service. I would never purchase anything from lazada specially electronics because of how they handled my case. Absolutely no support and repair /service channels for iphones bought from them. As per lazadas advice, I called the 1800 number and was again adviced to call the local carriers. I was adviced by the apple chat support to contact my local carriers. Local carriers like smart and globe would only accept repairs and service for iphones bought from them. I visited several local apple reseller stores and they decline to render service because the unit was not bought from them. I cant seem to get technical support and have the iphone checked by an authorized service center. What and where is the proper channel for me to get support and have the unit repaired or replaced? Thank you in advance.

One day I turned it off and since then I cannot turn it on, I've tried to pushed both the off/on button on the top and the round button on the front at the same time for about 15 seconds - it's didn't help. I can't turn it on. The solution with iTunes didn't help as well. The Iphone is dead.I bought the IPhone in USA at Apple store in the Internet. I live in Israel. What can I do? I understood that in Israel there is no support or service for iphones that didn't bought in Israel.Can I send it with DHL to USA and Apple will fix it or replace it to a working one? It's new and has warranty. Please your help.
I have an iPhone 4S running on iOS 6.1.3 and runs fine, but the wifi lags and skips.I don't know why, I know that either updating or some 4S/4 iphones have this issue. This only happens when I use it in an Application, not in general. This is my 2nd 4S I went from S3 to 4S again. My first iPhone was fine. I wish I had it back...
I have two iphones, both 4s's, and I havn't used one for a few months, then I forgot the password. How can I turn off my password without knowing it!?!

My wife and I bought two iphones 3 yrs ago.. The accounts where seperate while dating or at purchase. Her cousin (an IT Guru) Managed I think to somehow link up our 2 iTunes together. Meaning we She had apps of mine on her phone and I have apps of hers on my phone and we had to know each other's passwords to update our phones. 3 years later we are finding out that you were getting updates from each other's iCloud accounts and screwing up settting etc. how do I separate the two accounts thank you..
I have had my Apple Tv since August of last year. My family and I have been able to connect our iphones, iPads, etc. to the Apple Tv using "Airplay" (Mirroring). As of recently, it will not connect anymore. The Airplay icon in the most recents bar has dissappeared. I have updated my Apple Tv and still no luck. I have rebooted my router/ modem and still no luck. We use our Apple Tv for movies and shared games, kids are disappointed that it no longer works. Can someone please help me fix it. Thanks.

I have two iphones, one for myself and one for my wife. My wife's phone was having problems so Apple kindly provided me with a new phone. When I got it home and tried to install the backup, iTunes wouldn't let me. It said the operating system wasn't up to date and I would have to set it up as a new phone. I did this and now my wife's new phone seems to think it is my phone and I don't see any way of installing the backup of her previous phone. Any ideas?
My iphones LCD screen is broken how do I send it to apple for repair? Will it just be the exact same iphone but repaired or do they replace it with a new one?
Hello! So I realize this question has been asked many times as to why the "other" category on an iPhone is large. Mine was about 3.4GB, which I thought was unusually large, so I recently restored it and it became 4.8GB. I recently switched from the iPhone 4 to the 4S and this is when the "other" category seemed to jump from something fairly insignificant to over 3GB.. Is there any other way to fix this besides restoring the device? My device is "16" GB and with almost 5 GB being taken up, it's becoming a problem. Thank you for your help!
I purchased my Iphone 5 in Italy ,I'm currently living in Asia will I be able to claim for warranty from Thailand or China?

THANK YOU
After dropping my iPhone 5, I realized that the bottom volume button no longer works. I can get it to work, but only with a large amount of force. Before I take it into the Apple Store, I was wondering if there is any possible way I could fix this myself. The iPhone is running iOS 6.1 (jailbroken, I'll restore it before I take it in).
For about a week, iMessage has not been working on my iPhone 4. It is turned on, I have wifi, and service. It is not just my phone, either. Friends with iphones have had the same problem. I thought at first, that there was something down with Verizon, but users with AT&T have had the same issues. Has anyone had the same issue or know if something is going on?
My phone is only allowing me to send and receive people who have iPhone. I'm able to text people without iphones but I cant get any back. But I am able to get picture messages from all phones. Can anyone help me!!

Hi all, I bough an Iphone 5 in Boston last month in the way to use it in Spain. It worked propertly, but two days ago I realised that one of the volume buttons doesn't work. I have called to Spain apple support. There, they have told me that my warranty is OK, but as it seems to be a hardware problem I should go to a shop to obtain a "new" one but as Europe iphones are not exactly equal to USA iphones, I should go to a USA apple shop to change it. Does someone know if I could send my iphone by mail (or something like that) to USA and then, they could send me another oner or the same but repaired from there?. Its impossible that I come back to Boston soon. Do you know how I can contact to USA apple support from Spain? Thanks and Regards.
I have an iPhone 4s.. I my phone started freezing when I picked a phone call then shutdown. Now I didn't update my latest iOS...

Hi guys! I had this problem about 3 months ago. I started having this when I took a screen shot of a game then suddenly after the flash, the colors changed.Yesterday it came back to normal for the first time but after several minutes, it went back to the distorted colos mode. Here are some pictures of the actual screen condition. You can see the problem here. The icons have a bit of a dark shade in their middle parts, but when I touch and select an icon, it shows their normal colors.*Look at the VIDEO ICON, PHOTO ICON and PHONE ICON.As you can see in this image, it's like on a thermal camera mode. LOL! it also has a large amount of image persistence in it. In this image, you can see that the lower part of the screen is missing (blackened) and has some image persistence too. You can also see the difference in color of the messages tab.Image color is different and has image persistence too. The colors are different and the screens bottom part is darkened. One thing I noticed here is that when the accesive touch button menu is active, the icons behind it get their normal colors back.*take a look a the APP STORE ICON, MAIL ICON, SAFARI ICON, CONTACTS ICON and PASSBOOK ICON Any help guys? Is there any software that can fix this or any method you know? If there's anyone who have the same problem and has encountered the same problem, kindly reply and post some solutions.Thanks in advanced for those who will read this post and give me some answers!
The sound on my iphones does not work and needed some help
My husband and I both have iphones (iPhone 4 and 4s) and we can't send pictures in a text message to each other, but we can send and receive them from everyone else? Any ideas on how to fix this?
Apple does not unlock iphones, only the carrier the iPhone is locked to can unlock it. If this is an AT&T locked iPhone you will have to talk to them about the conditions you have to fulfill to have it unlocked.
I have had no problems with any of the iphones I have owned until just the other day. I have owned an iPhone 5 for 6 months or so, on day it just started sucking the life out of the battery. I tried all the online fixes and have the most recent update. I changed the battery, that seemed to help for a day, now it's back to draining before my eyes. Any eyes out there.
Hey guys,Does anyone know how i can get a print out of my entire text message history for one conversation on my iphone 4. I know it is in the phone because i can view it bit by bit if i continue to scroll and hit "view previous messages" but i am in the middle of a legal thing and i desperately need a print out of the history of this one conversation. There has to be a computer genius out there than can help me. There must be a way to export it to my macbook or my email or something. Please if you know anything i would be so grateful. Thank you!
Hi, (iphone 4 16gb)I recently had to change the front screen with a replacement set, I did everything to A standard,all the cables correctly connected etc, but when i try to turn the phone ON it does nothing.I plugged it into a wall main charger and now it turns on/off every 10seconds only reaching the apple logo boot.It has not once booted to the main screen. Before all this the iphone was bought second hand, its legit but had a damaged screen, withthe screen displaying red lines anywhere with light with the brightness flashing when bright. Now it looks to be fixed, since the apple logo previous on boot had a red line through the centre, but now has totally gone. I know this forum does not support people fixing there own iphones, but its not in warranty and i cant afford to buy a new one just yet. Does anyone know whats happening.Simply it only boots when connected to a power source, lasts for around 5-8seconds on apple logo, switches off and does the whole process again.I cannot simply hold down the power and home to get DFU mode since it restarts too fast.
Hello,In February I got a white iPhone 5 32GB Verizon company. The device was purchased at Apple Store Galleria in Fort Lauderdale. The device has a light leak under the lock button, Also have a strange problem that exists only in my house, it connects to wifi whenever the mood strikes him.I currently hold two iphones 5, one 16 GB purchased in Israel and one of Verizon - the device was bought in Israel and another two devices 4s bought in Orlando work really well on the wireless network, while the iPhone's Verizon shows one bar of wifi and moves very fast to the 3g local network.I unplugged the modem and reset the network settings on the device and it did not help ): In a month and a half I'll fly to Tampa, Florida. If want to replace the device should come with the original receipt?Or they will see that it was purchased from them by its serial number? the reception is under the name of my uncle. The most important thing about it: I have 280 songs on my iphone, if I replace the iphone they can pass the songs to the new new phone? If I decide to replace the iphone, I will get a new device out of the box and the same model (verizon a1429 CDMA) and size (32 GB)?The iPhone is brand new or refurbished? I will not accept a used or refurbished iPhone. iphone is purchased at full price close to $ 800.Problems in wifi and light leak just make me Apple dissatisfaction.Thank youGal Cohen
Hi there, I was wondering how I could go about speaking to someone regarding issues with a massive amount of excess data usage since having iphone 4s. I have spoken to my provider and have been advised to speak you regarding this issue. In the last 3 years i have had problems with 5 iphones and each time have been replaced due to battery problems. The only reason I decided to get another iphone was because of this convenience but am starting to get pretty over these constant issues. I would really like to speak to someone who could help resolve this issue because I do love the Apple brand but am pretty close to giving up. Thank-you, Christina
So my wife bought an iPhone 5 64g and also purchased a mophie juice pack case/battery. last night (3/23/13) she is sitting in a lawn chair and accidently lets the phone slide from her lap to the floor. the device probably fell a total of 12-18" and landed on the case portion (not flat faced). the LCD assembly (digitizer and all) came away from the housing completely. it was only connected by the ribbons/cables that provide power to the assembly. i work in the cellular industry and have dealt with iphones for a while now and have never seen this happen before. the glass is not broken in any way. it appears as if any adhesive or clamping components used for the assembly simply failed. my concern is that if i go to the apple store for a replacement, am i going to get a hard time from some one at the "genius bar" claiming we abused or whatever the device? has any one experienced this or have any information regarding something similar?
