Having problems with my iphone since a few days ago.... when making and receiving calls, I cannot hear anything.... I can only hear if I set my phone on speaker mode
For a month or two, the speaker on my iPhone 4s hasn't been working. The phone is not in silent mode. I have tried putting headphone mini plugs in and out of the jack (in case the phone was somehow in headphone mode, which it wasn't). Speakerphone calls, the ringer, music, facetime, and safari videos are all silent unless I'm using headphones. When this first happened, the sound came back on after a few days, but a day later it went away again and hasn't come back for more than a month. It is not under warranty any more, nor do I have insurance. I am hoping someone out there knows a solution so I don't have to deal with this for another 9 months until my contract expires. Thanks, William
when I type a voice comes on and suggests a word. How do I turn this off?
When my wifi is off, everything works fine. My internet, all my apps, everything will load. When I turn on my wifi, that all goes downhill. my internet wont load, none of my apps that require internet are playable, nothing works. I have tried resetting my phone and restoring it, My boyfriends phone, which is exactly like mine, uses my wifi just fine without a problem. What should I do to fix this? I cant go to an Apple Store, I would have to take a 5 hour plane ride to get to the nearest one.
It just want cut on
When making a phone call i can hear the person on the call, yet when i speak they cannot hear me. Seldom times the phone speaker will work where the other person on the call can hear me, but moments later it will mute again. I've had success using viber and can make voice control which makes things more confusing. Any ideas? Regards Ibrahim Gungor
view only works in one direction,will not change when I turn the phone
I was installing an app, it got to around 3/4 of a way and then stopped installing and I waited about 5 minutes alas it was still stuck on the same 3/4 mark. A friend told me to turn my phone off and back on, stupidly I turned it off halfway through the download/install and it wouldn't switch back on, it just stayed at the apple logo. I've tried many "solutions" like holding down the home and on button, doing that whilst it's plugged into the computer etc and it just won't turn on! I'm thinking a trip to the apple store is needed but the closest one is around an hour away so before that does anyone have any suggestions? :(
I have a brand new iPhone 5 which cannot access the server without WiFi, I have restored the phone and network settings even replaced the nano sim but the Optus Store states that I now need to replace the phone at an apple store but the nearest store is an hour drive is there another location where I can replace the phone around the Bankstown area?
Again I stand corrected w, thanks, I read too fast.
When I plug my 4S into my computer to charge it, it automatically opens MS Word and then shows me another window with my picture in it. How can I turn that off, or what is causing that to happen? Thanks
I just bought an iPhone 5 this past Friday for my first smartphone with Verizon, and I have been pretty happy with it so far, though I haven't been using it too heavily. Today, I had it with me all day long, and it seemed like the more I used it, it got pretty hot. Even hot to the point where I couldn't hold it in my hand in an air conditioned room. When this started to happen, I noticed a small spot in the upper right hand corner of the screen that turned yellow, almost like a sunspot. Seeing that, I turned it off for a bit, then turned it back on, and it was still there. I then didn't touch it for awhile, let it cool down, and when it did, the spot disappeared. So I brought it back to vErizon where i brought it, and by that time it colled off and the spot gone, so they couldn't help me, but they did say to bring it to the Apple store and they can plug it in to see how hot it has been in the past. Is there any way that I can look at this myself rather than driving the distance to go to one, because there's not one incredibly close to me. Also, has anyone heard about this spot before? I'm worried about the heat output of these thigns because when my Otterbox comes in the mail, i'm worried about that heating up then shutting itself down, because my ipod does that from time to time in it's Defender. Thoughts? Thanks
My camera was working fine and taking great pictures then one day it just stopped focusing and the pictures are blurry. If I switch it to the front camera it works well and looks like it should but when I turn it back it goes back to being out of focus and I can't figure out how to fix it? Any suggestions or do I need to take it to Apple? Thanks,Laurie
My iPhone 4S volume isn't working. No sound when playing music. No ring or text message sound. If I try to turn volume up for ringer on side, the box appears, but no bar to show volume up or down. If I do a test ring in settings it works though. Silent switch is in the correct position. I tried a hard reboot (ignored the red slider). It worked a minute ago but then stopped again. It seems like it might have the problem when I'm trying to play music. Thanks!
I bought it in January. I just can't believe that my iPhone wil not synchronize with my iTunes anymore. And every time the battery gets low, i will have to turn it off and wait it to be full charged, so i can start to use again. Does anyone here had the same problem??
I recently blocked an ex's phone number through my service provider. I realized I was still able to communicate with him via iMessage. I turned it off, I'm wondering if I turn it back on, will I recieve any messages he may have sent while it is turned off
Hi, I understand there are two mics on the iphone 4, which would explain my problem. I need a DIY fix if possible please. When I'm making a call, the person im speaking to can only hear a extremely faint voice from me, so faint they would need to be in a sound proof room to hear me. If I switch to speaker phone they can hear me fine, as im guessing this uses the other mic located on the top of the iphone. I've seen a youtube fix for a mic which isn't working. Would this be the fix involving opening iphone and inserting a piece of card or plastic to create pressure on the chip? Any comments or advice would be most grateful.
Why does my iPhone volume ringer icon come on by itself, the volume gets turned down on its own then the icon stays on and blocks my view. It also will at any time make any screen switch to large pictures that I can only see a small portion of screen at a time. I have tried too tap screen to make it go back to normal and nothing happens. I then try to turn it off. After several tries I am successful Its hard slide power off button because only a small section is showing. What is happening? How do I fix this?
My friend is on a class trip to Germany. He has been texting me on his ipod, through wifi, with a texting app called text free. I have an iPhone with unlimited texting. We have not been texting through iMessage, just SMS, but he is sending them from his ipod. Will I be charged gobs of money for "international texting" or is it part of my data plan since he is using wifi? HELP!
Well after a fall from around 10cm high my mic stopped working. I could listen to all my ringtones, i can voice record but when comes to phone call i cant hear anything or be heared even if i use the loudspeaker. Also when a call is established the speaker option is enabled automatically. Replacing mic will work ? Anyone had similar problem?

Hi all My iphone 5's home button will only work when pressed at one side if you press it at the right hand side it wont work at all and some times it doesnt work at all. I have booked a genius appointment but i switched back to my old 4s because i didnt want to use the phone until this was fixed so i had to get my nano sim changed back to a micro sim, Will apple still replace the phone even though i dont have my sim to pop in it ? thanks
What should I do?Thanks!
Has been like this for a month, FaceTime still works but have no access to iCloud and can not turn on iMessage ???
My phone just cut off and now it wont turn back on. It was charged and everything. I plugged it in to a couple of chargers to see if that would work but nothing.
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!
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.
I downloaded IOS 7 and now can not turn on my imessage. any suggestions
ok so if you have any iphone and your power is or isnt working and youve tried plugging it in and tried to use diffrent chargercables and tried anything thing else. then this is your last resortokay.i had a problem with mine and it just randomly shut off so i wasited the whole day to wait for the battery to diebut seemed like there was no prosses so i figured out this crazy idea.if you putyour phone in the freezer for about 10 min and then take it out then put it on the charger it should work.what putting your phone in the freezer does is drains the battery super fast so all you have to do when its over is charger it
I am unable to hear any sound through phone receiver. I can hear through spaeker and headphone of the phone. The model is 4S and OS is updated to leatest version 6.1.3. When i press the volume button it shows headphone within brackets. what should i do to hear from phone receiver?RVSM
ok so i just woke up and turned on my phone and everything i went downstairs playing some music and my iphone just turned offit had 97 percent battery and just turned off i tried waiting and letting the barrty die and then recharging but still no progress i tried going on my laptop and plugging in the iphone but it wont reconize my iphone. my iphone wont charge at all and shows no life within the phone at all i tried other peopels cords but no progress i was wondering if you guys could hlep me out?
I started with one iPhone. Then an ipod was added. Then another ipod. And now 2 more iPhones. The phones are all under an A T & T family plan. When setting them up I used the same Apple ID so we would all be able to get the same apps. I'm not sure if this is correct. It is causing problems because any apps that are added to one device it automatically goes to all the other devices. And calendar events are popping up on other devices. Also whenever a device is plugged in to the computer to charge or update, they all say katie's phone which is the original device. How do I get iTunes to recognize each individual device? Any help would be appreciated.
iMap puts up a marquee with dirctions in the iMap window. How do I turn that off?
Can't turn my wifi on for the past 2 months and don't know what happened to my wifi
I was planning on buying a 32GB unlocked iPhone 5 with the T-Mobile nano Sim. I was going to activate the Sim with T-Mobile's prepaid $30 unltd text/data with 100 minutes plan. I've read some stories online where people were only able to use the Sim with T-Mobile's post-paid plans. Will the Sim that comes included work with prepaid and post-paid plans? Also, assuming that it does work with prepaid, what steps would I need to go through to activate the iPhone? Assuming that it doesn't, would cutting down a prepaid Micro Sim from T-Mobile to nano Sim size work normally? Thank you in advance!
My new iPhone 5 speaker doesn't work , I can only make phone calls through headphones or the loud speaker .. Can anyone help?

Its like my Microphone doesn't work with Videos and speaker phone...its getting really annoying it works fine in Voice Memos and Voice calls (Without SP) Videos sound nothing but statis Anyone know how to fix this?
Hello, I just replaced my 4S's display, and after reassembly the iPhone powered on as normal, but - there is no sound, mic or vibration what so ever. It doesn't detect a headphone jack either. The mute button and volume buttons work just fine, volume control shows up but there is no vibrate or sound at all. So this basically makes it useless as a phone ... Anyone know what could be causing the issue? I tightened the screws, tried reconnecting the cables and the speakers. Hoping this is not an issue with the audio IC. Definately not software related, tried full DFU restore, tried cleaning the dock connector and jack, the iPhone is NOT stuck in dock connector mode. TL;DR: No sound from any speaker, no vibrate what so ever, no mic, doesn't detect headphone jack. Anyone know what's wrong? Could it be a damaged Audio IC (don't really see how this can happen)? Broken flex cable?
Okay so i had problems with my iPhone earlier. It would power off randomly when I was or wasnt using it. And i also charged it when I had 30% but on the top right corner for the battery icon, where its suppose to show ' charging ' it showed Fully charged. and after it died, I plugged it back in with it saying its charging. The symbol with a low red battery with a charging sign. It stayed on that symbol for more than 12 hours and never turned on to the lock screen. And if i take it out of charge, it completely shuts off.But when i plug it back in , it has the apple symbol from when you turn it back on after you powered it off. It did that symbol repeatedly. Please help. The problem: Won't charge or turn on to lock screen Is there anyway I can do it besides taking it to Apple? Thanks (: I don't think I backed up anything, but I maybe did and I have lots of things on my phone. So is there any other solutions that I can use besides restoring it?
my iphone 5 was today restored due to it getting buggy and as normal it was done with the latest ios 6.1.4. everything is fine except i can no longer use bluetooth. i can turn it on in settings however it never sees or can be seen by other devices/pc/mac/smartphones etc. any help would be greatly appreciated? thanks jason
I have an Iphone 5, I dont use Siri very often but tried to use it the other day and it does not respond, I have read other threads - tried resetting, backing up, tried everything that was suggest and still no luck. I know its not the wifi as my son has ipod and siri works on this without any problems. Im not sure what else to try, the phone is not very old, but, out of the 90 days support, any one any ideas PLEASE!!!!
I have a new iPhone 5. There´s a problem with the proximity sensor, so it doesen´t turn off the display when I´m talking. The phone is 4 months old. How do I have to do to solve this problem? I´m not from USA, and I don´t have an Apple Store in my country. Tks.
Ok this is the second iPhone 5 I've had and I'm having the same issue as the one I've just replaced, the phone is dropping the wifi connection whenever anything is streaming, i.e. YouTube, NetFllix, Podcsts etc... Apple support said it may be my router but every other device in the house is fine, iPad 2, ipod Touch my wifes iPhone 4 and my Macbook. My question is could it be an incopatability issue with my BT Home Hub 2 router and iPhone 5? I've tried all of the troubleshooting suggested by apple support but the issue continues. I've also tried other possibilities from this and other forums and nothing seems to fix the issue. I'm opening a new thread because of the significance of the router which I think my be the problem but have no idea to be honest. I wished I'd kept my old iphone 4 it was solid and the battery life on this new phone is just shocking! Any help or ideas would be appreciated cheers
i had do all the following step that apple give , i also try few times of restore and still the same its not helping , the wifi on/off button still greyed and counldn't turn and bluetooth on/off button had turn into a spinning little circle ,it wont stop spinning every time i tab into bluetooth !
