My daughter has put a passcode on her dads iphone 4s and cant remember it and after multiple attempts it is now in "connect to itunes. My husband does not want to lose the photos on it. Is there a way to get photos off before restoring
Hi everyone! I have an iphone 5 that was newly "remodeled" for tmobile. I was wondering if there was something wrong with my battery after a recent decline in performance. I am updated to the latest iOS and I recently restored all of my settings on my phone in an attempt to increase battery performance, leaving only wifi on location for weather. with my current usage and standby, do I have something to be concerned about? I know some individuals that have my usage and will have a standby time of over a day. Advice and opinions is very much appreciated.
My iphone is disabled after enetering the screen passcode incorrectly. I followed the steps and the settings were restored. The phone, however still indicates "iphone is disabled, connect to itunes", and it now wants to follow the restore process again. Can I enable the phone without restoring the phone for a second time?
Forgotten passcode or device disabled after entering wrong passcode
i unfortunately purchased an iphone 5 only to find out wifi calling is not in it like most androids, any solutions?? (please don't tell me about skype or other wifi services) I am talking about a phone that just switches and calls out automatically on wifi for tmobile
Hello! I live in Russia and love Apple very much, have many different products and never had any problems with them. And now I decided to buy a new iphone 5 and wasn't lucky. I bought it on 3.05.2013 in normal shop, then turned out that wi-fi and bluetooth are not working and the phone eats battery very fast. Shop doesn't want take it back, official services don't want to repair it for free, because it was made for USA. I really don't know what to do:( To buy android? Hope you can help me somehow, the best solution for me is to change it. Serial № of the phone: F17KF2E5DTTR; Part №: MD296LL/a; IMEI: 013428008469809. Thanks!

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.

Is it possible to use an iphone 4 purchased from sprint at another carrier
When I try to update an app, it says that may apple ID has been disabled. what do I have to do?
I have iphone 5 here in Oman. But there is no any option of Enable LTE in cellular settings. Why is it so? Mobile Operators have LTE services and my SIM is also privisioned with LTE. I cannot see an option of "Enable LTE" at all ...... Carrier Supports LTE for iphone 5 - Middle East 3 Country Supports UAE,Saudi Arabia,Kuwait but Oman ( omantel ) ?
FIX MY BATTERY!!!!!! I had WIFI location services off, LTE , everything, didnt listen to music., had it in my pocket at work and it drained to 64 % with me doing NOTHING to it. I used to beOK with the whole battery dra. in talk cause it didnt happen to me. NOW ITS AWFUL!!!!! IPHONE5......LATEST UPDATE HORRIBLE BATTERY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!
Please help- its my understanding that iphone stores where you have been (location history). When I was searching the Internet to see if I could access this info, I found Pete wardens iphone tracker download (I think it came out in April 2011), but then I read that apple fixed this problem of storing this info on your computer too, by releasing a software update shortly after. Is that correct? If I backup my iphone to computer will it have a file on there that stores the history of where I and my iphone have been? Or is this no longer the case? I desperately need a log with time stamps, I need to prove where I have been in the last week (marriage problems). If iphone only keeps this info on the phone now, can I access it somehow?Thanks for your help-Alisha
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
My phone discharges very quickly. I turned off location services (except Find my phone) and notifications (except phone alerts, message alert, reminders & calendars). I even put it on 4G instead of LTE. does anyone have any suggestions? Help! Leslie
Hi, I purchased an iphone 5 back in February from an Apple store. Worked absolutely fine until now, where some software issue are appearing; The battery drains ridiculously fast even when features are disabled (i.e. location services, 3G when not needed), and also the home button some time has a lag when exiting apps. This has been bothering me now, but there is a slight blemish on the phone near the earphone jack... would Apple dismiss a replacement and ask for a charge, even though it's 3 months old?
I recently purchased an iphone 5 (Monday, May 6th) and am convinced that the battery is defective. I attempted to get the phone replaced by AT&T since it is within their 14-day Return/Exchange policy, but of course they denied me based on it being a "technical" issue and therefore a problem I need to take up with Apple. Whatever that means.Background info: Left the house around 10:00 AM, battery fully charged at 100%Finished class at 12:00 PM, battery dropped to 53% (VERY minimal use, I was sitting through a lecture)Arrived at AT&T store at 12:15 PM, battery at 51%AT&T Rep turns off LTE, Wireless, location services, Bluetooth and Auto BrightnessThe only apps that were opened/used were Text, Mail (fetch set to Manual) and SafariAT&T Rep says there's nothing he can do, but these changes should "help"Left AT&T 12:25 PM, hopped on bus, got home at 12:45 PM, battery drops to 43% (ZERO use)Call nearby Apple store at 12:50 PM to set up an appointment (Call length: 11 minutes), battery drops to 41%Call Customer Support at 1:30 PM to run remote battery diagnostic (Call length: 16 minutes), battery drops to 32%Apple Rep says the diagnostics looks normal...... Battery life: 30%Usage: 2 hours 26 minsStand by: 6 hours and 3 minutes This can't be right. Is anyone experiencing similar issues with their battery? does the usage information above look normal? Any suggestions and/or tips on what I can do? I'm so upset with both Apple & AT&T right now. The AT&T rep even suggested that I "turn off cellular data" to save the battery life. REALLY? I feel like I basically just purchased an iPod touch for $240!
My iphone has been disabled, it is saying to contact to iTunes. However, when i do connect it, it says that I need to unlock the passcode, which I can't. Do you have any ideas how I can unlock it please? Thanks

My 4S is on 6.1.3 is draining battery like crazy. I've turned Siri off and most location services and I close all my apps after I use them. I've done the Microsoft Exchange fix thing and nothing works. I'm a long iphone user and this makes no sense to me. Help Please
Hey. My iphone 5 is currently on firmware 6.0.2 and there is an apparent green glow in the lower parts of the lockscreen when I unlock the phone and it gets more prominent if the phone has been unlocked after a longer time. The glow is a lot like the screenshot of other users facing the same problem. Now, I saw that everyone was getting it fixed by asking for a replacement. My problem is, the phone was bought in the UK and I am currently in Bangladesh where there are no official Apple stores. How should I ask for a replacement and what should be the procedure for it? Really would appreciate some help in this matter
My wifi option on iphone 4S is disabled. How do I turn it on again?
My iphone 5 (32GB) is not connecting to a wifi network, where as the iphone 4 connects immediately from the same location.Is this a phone issue?
I find that the location services symbol is always solid gray next to my Find My iphone tab in settings, indicating that an outside source is using the find my iphone app to pin point my location. Is there anyway to determine who/what is tracking my iphone and from where?
Hi Everybody!I got a factory unlocked (originally was Vodafon locked) iphone 4s with firmware 6.1.3.When I insert my sim (Hungarian Telenor) when only EDGE is on it founds the signal and seems like everything is working.After a few hours or sometimes even a day passes by a phone stays on full signal with Carrier logo and Edge on, but my friends reporting that they cant call me(like im offline) and i cant make calls either.The interresting stuff is that the Edge connection is fully working during that im offline for my friends via Calls and i can send and recieve imessages and viber messages.When i switch 3g on it disconnects from service drops the EDGE and never finds the way back and stays 'searching' or 'no service' at all.. I thought that its my Carrier's fault so i went to spoke with them and tried 5different micro Sims( cause i wrote that 4s-s are sensitive to SIM card types).. this thing not worked either, Then i tried the phone with a T-mobile SIM card.. it does the same..connects to the services,but with 3g switched on not finding service..so totally like with my sim. Here Comes the bumm... i Tried the phone with vodafone sim and everything works.. simple connectivity to 3g with full internet usage,can make and recieve calls...I spoked with all of the Carriers and also Apple and no body can give me nothing..the phone is off varranty so changed to a new one isnt an option..Anybody? Something? im beginning to give up .. please help if you can..Thanks!! ps.:i restored over 20times,reset network settings,switch off and on automatic setting time.. every little possible things that people wrote on forums before..
Hi All, So I have disbled my iphone 4s by forgetting my passcode (like it seems many other people do!). Also as the phone went dead as I was away for the weekend the SIM is also locked. I have often backed it up to iCloud but I never had the camera roll back up option ticked as I cannot see it when I sign into iCloud. I dont have iTunes on my laptop or access to the original iTunes where it was synced a year and a half ago. My question is can I get the phone unlocked by Apple? ( I have the IMEI number and proof of purchase) Is there any way of keeping or getting my photos/videos and messages? When I had my phone plugged into the laptop and was clicking backup through wifi will this have also backed up my photos? Thanks!

Apple ID shows it has been disabled. Why?
my iphone 4 is disabled. to many passcode attempts. says, connect to itunes. itunes can't access phone w/passcode enabled. i can't. what to do?
Well I tried turning off the Bluetooth, turning off WIFI, turning off location services, and all Push activity. After all of this my battery lasts about 8 hours. I guess I could keep the phone powered off but I think that kind of defeats the purpose of owning the phone. Any studies on the lifespan of an iphone 4 battery? My applecare warranty runs out in a few months.
Maps on İOS 6 is very bad for Turkish users because i couldn't find any of my location which i want to find regularly. But Google maps better than Apple maps. When will we reach the google maps app in Turkish Apple Store?
I tried updating my apps recently, and it says my account is not "valid for use in the Japanese store" and that i need to change it back to the U.S. store. I was going to change my location on iTunes (under the same account) to the U.S store but it was already on the U.S. store?
does iphone 5 shows wrong location? If yes, how it depends on showing the location?
This one has me stumped...My wife iphone 5 has an extreme battery drain issue, but it only happens at her workplace. If she turns off wifi and cell data the battery drain still happens, but if she puts it in airplane mode the battery doesn't drain. If she is at home, she has no problems at all with all connections turned on. Any ideas?

Hi, Yesterday I gave my phone to the techic service.

Now I can not communicate anyone and this makes me victim. I can not give a solution in my country services so I decided to write here. Best and kind regards. Murat
Pls have this to pay attention for. If this is a hardware problem, what must be done to repair it? If that's a bug, when shall A.guys have a fix for that.BTW, may that be a problem actually linked to Bluetooth connectivity in the first turn? Bluetooth connectivity option is constantly "trying to determine it's state" (BT option setting shows "busy" running circle instead of on/off state), and after it finally gets to off state there appears to happen some change to wifi option behavior. Once it had even started back for an hour, but fell back to disabled soon afterwards.At least both these problems appeared together at the same time.All possible resets, firmware restores and 6.0.1 did not fix that. Shall I need to jailbreak the OS to fix it? And btw, the whole situation already ran a lot of people into high spendings for their 2g/3G overwhelming cellular data traffic. Apple to apologize for that at least? Or shall there be iphone 6 and the problem would remain unfixed and unnoticed?
how can I restore my iphone if I forgot passcode and phone is disabled so itunes does not recognize it
Hi I have an iphone 4S running iOS 6.1.3 The Compass app that comes with the OS will allow me to display a heading in magnetic north but not in true north. The true north option is grayed out. The magnetic heading displayed is accurate. I have location services turned on and compass calibration turned on too. Compass displays my correct LAT & LON. Magnetic and true north options working before. I tried powering the phone off and back on several times.Sometimes Compass allow me to select the true north option, but when i click done the app switches to magnetic north itself. Anyone have seen this?Tanks a lot.
Hey there - wondering if this message my iphone is saying (in a red banner):"Phone disabled, Try again in 45 minutes" could be from getting it a little wet the other day?It was in purse with bottle water with top not tight... phone acted funky for awhile, then fine.Five days later, this msg and it won't stay off when I turn it off.I put it in a bowl of rice today in case it's still wet...Any ideas?Thanks!K
Siri keeps freezing when I try to set reminders. Once it freezes, I have to do a hard restart to clear it out. It freezes the entire phone. I can ask for siri to find a location and it works perfect. Any one else having this issue and how to fix it?
Hey guys you've probably read my other threads about a bad iphone battery.here is what happened.i bought an iphone 4 from ebay that had an error 21 ( wouldnt power up unless it was plugged in)i had a bad eSn cracked iphone 4 with me, so i swapped the battery from my old iphone 4 to the new one. The old battery was working perfectly fine on the bad esn iphone. OK so i swapped it and the iphone with error boot it up! i was happy but then while it was still working it got really HOT while being plugged in, while unplugged still warm though. Batter drained quick and got the Temp warning. Then today it died, i tried it on the bad esn iphone and yes battery died. When i opened the iphone again, the battery had some green things coming from the battery. im guessing because it was over heated.not sure what to do now. help anyone?
