Welcome to Apple iPhone news and Chat discussion forums. iPhone Discussions is dedicated to iPhone,Talk about iPhone modifications,software,reviews,Support, iPhone news , iphone mobile,iPhone OS and more about jailbroken iphone keeps randomly shutting off...
Take your time to write a thoughtful comment on a video, hit send, and it's gone, "youtube is not available". It happens frequently on the iphone app yet never happens on the desktop site. This bug has followed the youtube app across multiple phones (OG & 3G), multiple OS updates, and still happens randomly. Not having a feature is better than one that frequently doesn't work, and frustrates, as well as wastes your time...I'm so ready to checkout the latest from HTC I copied this question from an archived thread from 2009. I'm having the same issue. I comment on YouTube a couple of times and it's fine, the third time it completely blocks me. It's very frustrating. Looking at the replies from 4 years ago it seems that its definitely the app that has the issue, not the main website. Something to do with capture was the solution last time. Why do I have this issue now, does anyone else have this problem?iPad 3' iphone4sPlease sort it out, it's getting hard to defend iphone these days!

Hello. I have an i4. My calendar icon went missing after I respringed my i4 when I changed the theme. I tried with restore my home screen layout but that didn't work out. I restarted it without luck. Went on to look if I had misplaced it, but that was not the case. I have a jailbroken i4. Is there anyway I can get the calendar back? Thanks in advance.
I have an iphone 3g and my wifi wasn't working at all! The wifi button wasn't working like I couldn't press it at all, so my brother told me to erase my iphone. I backed it up and erased my iphone, it didn't work so he told me to jailbreak it because he thought maybe since my iphone was originally jailbroken it might just need it to be jailbroken again. I did that and when I looked at it again ALL apps were gone! There were no settings, safari, or app store nothing, it was just a blank page! (A blank page with, oddly enough, my same wallpaper still) When I tried to search up things on the iphone it was found, but it said it was not loaded at all. Help anyone??
My iphone 4s no longer allows me to connect to any wifi connections. The option is greyed out and wont let me do anything to it. I have tried restarting and resetting the network connections and all settings but this has not worked. The wifi came back briefly randomly at one or two points but could not find any wifi networks. I have read on the internet it is probably a hardware problem so I will be taking it back to apple next week. Just wondered if anyone had any further ideas about the problems?
OS - 6.1.3After it turns off it gets put into " recovery mode". and even if i do the "restart", i have to do it several times before the phone actually turns on. phone is 1 year and 5 mos old. already tried to restore it but it just keeps on shutting down. can anybody help?
I have an iphone 5 64 GB running iOS 6.1.4 on AT&T. Over the past ~ three days, have noted that the iphone randomly "crashes". Could be when I am using an app. Could be when I am making a phone call. Could be when it is simply connected to the power cord and haven't touched it at all. The cycle is as follows: Screen suddenly goes blankThe white Apple logo (which typicaly appears during boot-up) appears for 3 - 5 secondsI hear the "chirp" that normally sounds at the end of boot-upThe iphone lock lock screen then appears Sometimes, when the phone emerges from lock screen, the brightness is about half of what it was prior. I have not been able to isolate this behavior to a specific set of circumstances. When it occurs during a phone call, the call is interrupted / other party is silenced, but if I swipe at lock screen, the call resumes (the other party notes that I went silent during duration). I have re-started / re-booted the iphone 15 times. I have cleared all apps from the cache. I have disabled all notifications and location services. I have done a Reset All Settings on iphone and restored from iCloud. I have done a Restore from iTunes. The problem continues. I would say that this crash cycle occurs about every 30 - 60 minutes. As noted, many times when I'm not even touching / using the iphone. Have also noted that when not connected to power supply, the iphone is quite warm, and battery drain is at an accelerated rate of 3x to 4x of "normal", worse than prior iOS 6 related battery issues. Have also tried all the usual battery saving tricks - wifi is off, GPS is off, EQ is off, etc. Any thoughts before I head to the Genius Bar? Thanks! TCF
Please help I have only had it a month and it stopped working. I need help to get it fixed, its upsetting. I can give more info on request hust need to get it fixed.
My phone has been shutting off unexpectedly. I did the factory reset and yet the problem continues. Now the phone just refuses to start up. Only for a few seconds I see the Apple logo and it quickly fades away and screen is back to Black. Any help is appreciated.
i use iphone 3gs. with ios 4.0 version,,,, it has been jailbroken.. is jailbreaking legal or not..and if i want to upgrade to newer version what are pros and cons?
I've had my iphone 5 since November and have had no problem with it but over the past couple days,my phone will randomly start playing music when im on the internet or when im have an app opened or even when my phone is locked and I'm not on it. Siri also activates out of knowhere sometimes. How can I fix this? This is really starting to get irratating! I could use some help!
Hello,sometimes my iphone 5 64gb is just shutting down and not responding, after having white lines on its screen.It happend to me about 6 times, and it looks like a serious hardware problem!what should i do?thank you.
I am not the most technically inclined, so please bear with me. About two months ago, lines began showing up in Safari every now and again. They would go away, so I didn't think too much of it. Then one night, while in a game app, the screen began "flashing" like a strobelight. It couldn't exit the app fully, was blinking half the screen in the app, part of the home screen, etc. You cannot see throught the commotion to use the phone, if the programs can even open. This happened all evening, through the night, and the entire following day. Then it stopped. It was fine when I took it to the AT&T store (the closest Apple store is 45 minutes away, so I wanted to be sure AT&T couldn't do anything for me) but by opening and closing programs and apps, I was able to force it to act up. Of course when I left the store, it worked fine again. It was fine for a few days, acting up only a time or two, but I drove 45 minutes to the Apple store. My Genius Bar member told me it was software based and that I should restore the phone, download the software again, and manually add my media back on. After the four+ hours of downloading and 2+ hours of adding media, it was fine again. That was about two weeks ago. Now it's back. I looked into the diagnostics (what I can see through the noise on the screen) and I have many different errors going on. Googling these errors codes is not providing much information, and again, I am not the best with this stuff. SO:-Is a latestcrash.plist or mediaserverd.plist the same as a panic.plist code? In turn, if they are, will Apple replace the phone as they supposedly do in the case of panic.plist crashes? -I've noticed a bunch of the issues seem related to audio and video functions on the phone. I have AudioToolbox, CoreFoundation, and CoreQuartz codes, for example. Are these things that would justify a replacement? I am sitting through another 4 hour software download right now in order to restore the phone again, but am afraid to lose that diagnostics info, but also cannot see the screen to send any diagnostics info to Apple. Is this something that is software based? Does that mean I am going to be doing this every few weeks? The phone is only 6 months old, but I don't want to let it go and loet the one year manufacturer's warranty. I apologize for being so verbose but I really cannot find anything online that sounds similar to what my phone is doing. Any guidance would be much appreciated.
My iphone 4s keeps randomly turning itself off then back on,what is wrong with my phone?
My iphone 4S randomly turns itself off during a call on FaceTime. I have no idea why..?
hey there, so i bought my iphone on April 5th and it was working fine up until 2 days ago, my phone started glitching and shutting off by itself. Today it shows up with the input cord on the bottom of the screen and an arrow pointing to the itunes symbol at the top of the screen. When i plug my iphone into the computer it says it needs to be restored, i click "restore iphone", it then loads well but when it makes the final load to turn my phone on, it crashes and says "the iphone "iphone" could not be restored. An unknown error occured" what do i need to do to fix my iphone??????
My iphone5 seems to randomly die then restarts about 10 minutes later. Its very frustrating. Has anyone else experienced similar issues or knows the cause/cure?
My iPhone5 has touchscreen problem, it's started around 2 weeks ago, tortured me, even I can't use it now. Every day, around 7:00-10:00am (sometime it occurred at noon), the touchscreen totallly no reaction, even can't unlock it. I only can chat wit siri -_-''', take phone with headset. I did what I can do to fix it, but doesn't works.. Forced Reset (Hold Home + Power)Restore iphone via ituneRestore iphone via itune with FirmwareClear touchscreen -_-'''Del all appsWipe all dataTurn off it, couple hours later, turn on phone (Some time, it is works. But when I can't turn off power usually.)... This problem occurred randomly, when I going to visit apple store, the phone works fine. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? So, I can't exchange a new one back. Anyone has idea how to fix it? or anyone could give me some instruction? Or anyone faced same problem but solved it finally? I have vedio record when the problem happened, so can i show Genius the vedio when i go to apple store? Thanks for all.
After my latest update on my iphone 4 my phone started just shutting down and restarting by itself. I have tried to restore the phone with the latest version of iTunes but now get the error message that iTunes has detected a phone in recovery mode. Well that's fine, I selected recovery and when it appears that the recovery mode is going to go through the recovery mode returns an error code. The first code I received is the error 1656, then a 26, then the final attempt I got an error code 21. This phone has never been dropped, mishandled, or taken any physical damage. It was working great before I attempted to update. Please if anyone else has experienced this let me know how you resolved these errors. I have attempted every trouble-shooting step indicated on the Apple support site. HELP!
My mom passed me her phone as she couldn't get it to restart. I got it to charge and restart in recovery mode. However, I've tried all steps on this and many other forums and it is stuck in "trying to restore". On the phone, it will blink a white screen, show the apple logo and a progress bar then quickly disappear then on the computer give me error code 9. I have tried 3 different cords, on both my MacBook Air and my iMac. Same results on both computers. She purchased a new phone as she couldn't do without, but would love to fix this phone and give to one of my children. This phone has not been jailbroken. Any help would be sooooo appreciated! Not sure what will happen if I try to take this to Apple.
About a month ago my iphone 5 turned itself off. It does this now a couple times a day and I have to hold down both the menu button and the power button for almost 10 seconds to have it restart. Lately, I go to take the phone out of standby and it shows a power cable conneted to the iTunes logo. I still have to hold down both the menu button and the power button for almost 10 seconds to have it restart. The phone holds its charge and I make sure I am charging the phone everyday. Not sure what it is causing this. This morning when the power cable and the iTunes logo appeared I plugged the phone into my computer and opened itunes. It found the phone, but said it needed to repair and install everything from a previous backup. So I did that hoping that would solve the shut down issue, but it did not. Has anyone heard of this happening. The phone had been working great. Any thoughts?
my iphone 4 wont turn on. its been on charge for about five hours now. it says its charging because it comes up withthe battery with a lightening bolt, but the battery is off course red. how do i get it to work again? also latelt my phone has been randomly turning it self off and saying it has no battery when it had about 70% before it turned off. in order for it to turn on i have to put my phone on charge and works. i have noticed this when i go from a warm place (like inside) to a colder place (like outside) its starting to get annoying. How do i fix this?
out of the blue, the speakerphone is not working, ringing not working, the device only vibrates and also vibrates randomly for no reason. people can hear me but no sound out on any application. this is an iphone5 running ios 6.1.3
Is it safe to double tap home screen. Hold down icon till it wiggles, and then tap on red minus to shut down an app? I was told by a tech at store this wasn't good? Yet others say it is. I don't want to stress out my phone. What's the best solution?
I don't know if it's a hardware issue, software issue or what. If replacing the screen or other parts would help? Or if the phone is done for? Just really desperate! I don't know what to do! I haven't ever dropped the phone or had any water damage either... Please help!
My phone has been acting strange for a few days but today it have a few new quirks! When i'm charging it will stay at the current battery percentage and not go up. So I then turn off my phone turn it back on and its like MAGIC the percentage it up where it should be! Then it has been just shutting off while i'm using apps! Its driving me nuts!! Does anyone have any fixes or should I just head to the apple store and hope to get a new one?
About once a month half of an extremely old text message will randomly show up in a recent text message that I will send to someone. The texts are always over 6 months old and its only half of the text, blended into the current text I'm sending. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? Is there something wrong with my phone/ my friends phone?
I've had my iphone since release date. Everything has been working great up until about a week ago. The phone has an amazing battery life, I guess an update fixed that for me. But now my iphone will reset itself out of no where 3-4 times a day at random times. The keyboard will get stuck on the screen after entering something and clicking done. Also the iphone will freeze (I've tried leaving it for as long as a half an hour) and be totally unresponsive. I usually have to use the sleep/wake button in combination with the home button just to reset the phone so it works. It also randomly drops and won't connect to my home wifi at all, I also have a iMac, MacBook Pro, iPad mini, iPad 3, iphone 3, 3GS, 4, 4S and all of these work flawless with zero problems on my wifi network. My warranty is out in September, but I'm worried about going to an apple genius and having them ask me to re create the problem. What if it doesn't happen at that time? What can I do?
About three days ago my iphone decided to display the incorrect time at first it was an easy fixjust correct it using the clock app-thingy, then it got worse, so I shut it down that worked and hasstayed that way and me and my iphone became friends again.... UNTILI got home to charge it, I put it on the charger and it didn't take. I hooked it up to my original charger - nothingthe computer - nothinga friends charger - nothingbought a different offical charger - nothingshook it - nothingrestarted it - nothinglet the battery drain til it's dead and restarted it - nothingpunched it in the face - hospital visitbought it flowers and choclates - nothingwhispered sweet nothings into it's earpiece - nothingtook it back to where I bought it - nothing, was told to restart it by shutting it down for 10 mins then turning it back on - NOTHING. Frustrated, I go back to my friends house and attempted it one more time at her request, guest what - it worked, same charger as before but it worked. UNTILI get home and hooked it back up to my charger, my original charger, my computer - and got nothing ALL OVER AGAIN... Nothing seems to work with this thing, what's going on??
I would like to password protect individual apps on my iphone to keep data private. All of the apps I have found seem to focus on password protecting images and video. I would like to protect documents rather than pictures. Is this possible? I have seen responses that indicate that the phone must be jailbroken which I don't want to do.
Hello everyone! Sorry I'm new here but I'll try and get as much information on here !My iphone 5 32g has been having massive problems currently and I would hope that I would noyt have to take it into the Genius Bar until compelte last effort.So what is happening as of now is that my phone will shut down randomly, and also for some reason will not keep a charge even when it is plugged in. I have tried countless restores, and everything I can think of in the book, but nothing is working for me! If anyone could give me some insight to my problem I would appreciate it!
Hey everyone. I have an iphone 4S that needs replacing due to obvious hardware issues (shuts down randomly on its own). I have shown the panic.plist reports that it generates on another forum and they have confirmed the kernel and hardware problem. Since replacing it is the only way to go for me, I was wondering whether Apple still offers the option to upgrade to the next model when going to replace a phone with warranty. What I mean is, if I go to an Apple Store and ask to replace my handset for a new one (with my warranty/receipt) will I be offered to upgrade to an iphone 5 for an additional fee? Can I ask for this option? Thanks!
Hello.I have the following issue with my iphone 5 16 gb. Sometimes when I try to call somebody instead of normal call sounds (tones) I hear very load metal sounds and can hardly hear any voices.This issue is not a regular one, it appears sometimes and absolutely randomly, with different people, different phones and carriers.It is really frustrating, because for the phone the most important thing is call quality. Please comment if you have this issue too. Is it possible to replace my phone by Apple? I don't have any special apple care, just a standard 1 year limited warranty.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).
When I am using my iphone randomly the screen will go to the very dimmest setting possible. The slide adjuster however remains in the same brightness where it was set originally. When i press the slider again in the same spot it is resting it brightens like it should but will continue to randomly go dim throughout the day. This is rather annoying during the winter when it's harder to manuver a phone with gloves on in central Ohio. Thanks guys for your help!
Hello! This is my first time to enter the Apple Support Communities, and this is my first problem.Perhaps this video will explain everything: http://youtu.be/nKzWYuPNBSA I am using iphone 4 32gb GSM Model MC610LLIt is running iOS 6.1.3 It is NOT jailbroken. It will mess up my phone, anyway. Please help me! I'm short on cash right now so I can't afford a new phone! That's all
My iphone 4S sometimes stops playing music by itself while I am playing music. This occurs while my phone is on standby/locked mode; that is I am not using any apps and it brings up siri randomly? Any advice?
My mom got an iphone 4S last year and lately it has not been working very well. The phone makes no sound for anything, not even Siri and it vibrates randomly for no reason.
Under an exemption in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DCMA), jailbreaking the iphone has been kept legal through 2015. Given the aforementioned, along with the indisputable fact that "tweaks" exist, allowing jailbroken devices to build upon Apple technology, thereby enhancing the users experience... Why does Apple continue to stand in the way by providing roadblocks to what has been deemed legal?
Hi,My iphone 4 is stuck in recovery mode after trying to update to latest iOS, not realising it had been jailbroken (eBay purchase), therefore do not have a previous iOS to restore from, could do with as many suggestions or help as possible PLEASE....?
My iphone toolbar is missing the part with the carrier, signal strength, and wifi signal. What do I do?Btw i've never jailbroken it. iphone 5, latest os (6.1.3 i think)
Hi peoplesI have a badly behaving iphone 4 that I have put the virtual home button onto (assistive touch).The problem is that it randomly calls people, and voice control turns on whenever it feels like it also...! The only way I can get it to turn off is to plug into my imac, itunes and configure...Anyone had this problem and have a solution?
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'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?
My iphone 5 which i got december is freezing, randomly turn off, drop calls, sometimes buttons not responding, and rattel sound when i shake it (have not droped or been banly treated). I have updated the ios many times and resore aswell (im now runing version 6.1.3) and the problem is still there. I would take it to a apple store but I live far off any, I was wondering if i could send it to a store to get checked and fixed?All response will be greatly appreciated
my podcast app is shutting down after a few seconds iv tried to reinstall several times but nothing is working even after the podcast update last week im still having no luck getting it working any suggestions?
M y iphone 4S was jailbroken and I restored and backed up the phone, now I can't make phone calls or texts or charge it. Is that something that I should tell my telephone company about or how can I fix the problem?
As of this morning, I have been unable to send iMessages. My phone also randomly deletes all my previous messages and they reappear later. When I open messages, all the messages are jumbled, overlapping one another or they have a huge blank gap. I have iMessage turned on and it says that it's activated. I have full service and internet connection. I have toggled the iMessage between on and off, restarted my iphone, restored and then backed it up and nothing seems to work. Any tips?
I am sitting in my hotel room and apps on my phone are randomly opening. Is it possible that someone in the rooms close by can do this? My phone is not jail broken.
