Please help - My iphone 4 intermittently stops making and receiving calls/texts without warning, the phone will have a full signal and could be anywhere in the country but when you try to make a call it won't do it. If you then ring the phone it is as if it is turned off, if you then turn the phone off then on again it works perfectly well until the next time which might be in days or hours. T -Mobile talked me through a reset but this has not worked and Apple want a fee to help further as the phone is 22 months old, it is however little used and still looks new. Any help appreciated
Hello, I bought an iPhone 5 from the Canadian Apple store a few months back. I have just got back to the UK and inserted my UK sim card. I'm on Giff Gaff (O2) I can still make and recieve calls and texts. But most of my apps aren't working. Nor are any of my browsers. iMessage still works over 3G so i dont understand why my apps and safari arent sending or redceiveing data. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks in advance, Tom
I can hear someone when I'm talking on the phone and if someone texts me while I'm talking on the phone I can hear it. Otherwise, my phone makes no sound unless earplugs are in. No ringer, no alarm, any video or audio....all silent. Even Siri is quiet!
My iPhone 5 recently started having problems with the ringer. The ringer will be turned all the way up, the mute button is NOT being used and the phone will not ring for calls or alert for texts. It is not always happening, but more so than not. I have tried rebooting the phone, the OIS is up to date and I do not have the "Do Not Disturb" set. I can be in the same spot with LTE and full signal have a call/text that is missed then receive a call/text and it rings. Does not seem to matter if the call is coming from a land line, same Verizon carrier cell or different carrier cell there is no noticable reason. Any ideas???
I dropped my iphone 5 in water. The touch screen is not working, but its charging and im getting all my texts & notifications. I brought it four months ago without apple care. What can i do to fix it and if there cost what the estimate ?
My iPhone 4S will only vibrate with incoming calls and texts! I tried resetting the phone, using the side volume panel, and changing the swipe bar in sound settings, but none of those seem to work. Any advice?
I dropped my phone on the ground and the screen broke but now the screen is black all the time but i still get the buzzes from alerts or notifications, texts, and even phone calls. what do I do?
Without my knowing it, I recently had my iPhone 4 fall out of my jacket. When I came back and found it, it had been out in the rain for 3 hours. Now, the microphone does not work when making or receiving calls. The speakerphone microphone at the top works fine, but not the one at the bottom. I have tried rebooting, too, and nothing seems to work. Do I need to take it to the Apple store to diagnose and fix?
Hi! Just last night and this morning my iPhone has been having problems. I asked my sister to call me, (as a test.) but her phone played (no ringing) "the person you have called is not receiving calls right now." I can not send text message either. We both have iPhone 4s's. thankyou!
I have an iPhone 4. This morning I Fell and dropped it and the back cracked. Just about 45 minutes ago, my phone was knocked out of my hand and it fell on the floor. I picked it up and it would vibrate when i would get texts but the screen was black. I had heard somewhere that holding down the home and lock button down would fix the phone if it was frozen. it didn't seem to work. But when I got home I plugged my phone into the computer just to see what would happen. i thought i saw something faint light up on the screen. it looked like a usb cord. so i took the phone into a dark room but i let a little light hit it too. At just the right angle i could see the usb cord with an arrow pointing to an iTunes sign. so I connected it to iTunes on my computer. In just the right angle, I could see that i could unlock my phone. My phone screen was really dark so i tried turning up the brightness but it didnt work. So if just the right light hits the phone i can somewhat see the screen.Out of that light it just looks like the screen is black. I'm thinking that the screen light went out when my phone was kncked out of my hand. any help or advice?
Ever since I updated my iphone 4 (GSM) to ios 6.1.3 i have been unable to 'text' people in my contact list. - I can only text new numbers that aren't in my contact list? (Even if i try and type my friends number, instead of selecting their name, i am still unable to text them - it comes up with ERROR) I can only send imessages, successfully, to people in my contacts list. Please HELP! Thanks in advance.
just had my phone stolen iphone 4s. got new one with o2 everything is working o2 end but not on my iphone tried turning off and removing sim and replacing. can get wifi etc but wont send texts or accept calls and cant dial out any suggestions please
I got my iphone 4s a little less than two weeks ago and I am getting 4 hours of use and 4 hours of standby before my battery is almost dead. It also gets hot while charging or sometime while just texting people. I took the phone to my local sprint store and they tested the battery and said it was fine. I really don't see what else I can do. I turned siri off. I don't have many apps at all. I even exit them all out constantly every few minutes. I've tried everything anyone has said to try and help it but no luck. I don't even get service in my house so I'm rarely ever on the phone (maybe a combined total of 1 hour since I have had the phone) and the only texts I send are to people that have imessage because those can be sent with wifi. I really don't want to have to send my phone to apple and wait. But because the test showed nothing, sprint will not give me a new phone. What can I do?
My mum send messages to her contacts and all but one doesn't receive the message and the one who doesn't receive the message is using an iphone 4 and she uses an iphone 5

My iphone 5 is not making or recieving calls, but everything else works, including texting and receiving voice mails. I turned it on/off several times and checked my settings, but it still doesn't work.
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?

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!!
Has anyone experienced the volume intermittently working? My phone losers the ability to have sound for playing music etc...butit will ring and text. When I am playing a song the volume buttons don't work. BUT if someone rings or texts me...there is sound.
Hi, Ive been having a problem with sending iMessages the last two days, I can send regular SMS texts but cant send any iMessages to iPhones, a solution would be really appreciated!
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?
I have a iphone 4S and just changed my number, but I am still receiving calls from my old number. ATT told me to change my apple userid, is this correct?
I dropped my iPhone 4 today, which had a case on it but the screen is messed up. It isn't cracked anywhere but shows blue streaks. It also isnt dead because I am getting texts and can turn it off and on. I'm pretty sure something is messed up inside the phone and I need a new one, but im praying their is something I can do, please help!
I have had issues and everytime I plug iphone in to Mac it says it needs to be restored. I have rstored new software now but now asking if I want to restore backup. Thing is the last backup was 11/10/2012. What recent info will I loose? Will I loose recent texts and pics?
I communicate a lot with a friend who has an android phone we just realized that phone has been hacked and most likely has installed spyware in it.; we communicate a lot through various apps like Whatsapp, Viber, and textplus... Is my phone data (photos, messages, contacts) compromised by the Android phone being hacked? Please advice Thank you,
Today for some reason I am getting message "chargins is not supported with this accessory" when i hook up my phone to charge. The charging accessory i have is the same one I have had since i received my phone and its charging with an apple charger..even tried charging via my computer which is an Apple.I did order another charger but find this strange.
I have no clue. When I question the AT&T rep about what app is sending updates out at 1:30am and 3am, she has no clue. When I try to check the bill to see the texts, some I KNOW are from me are not there because the phone is sending updates or something. She turns her apps off at night and it still does it.
I have the iPhone 5 that I got the day it came out last September. The battery has always been pretty bad, but lately overnight it loses about 10-15%. I have to charge my phone every night, and I go to bed with it at 100% when I wake up a few hours later (about 5 hours) it's down to about 85%. I always make sure that no apps are open, I turn off the wifi, data, location and I don't get push notifications for mail. I also have do not disturb on and don't get any texts. It's not only over night, when using my phone I lose about 5% within 5 minutes. Is there any way to fix this, I'm always having to charge my phone. I have done the calibration before, charging it to 100 then let it get to 0 then charge it to 100. Can I fix this at all?
What do I do?!
I have two iphones within the household, a iphone 4s and a iphone 5. Recently whenever 1 sends a text to someone in either phonebook, the texts are shown on the other persons iphone. Any help on how to stop this would be greatly appreciated!!
the speakers on my iphone have stop working,, i can no longer have my calls on speaker, listen to music and i cant hear my ringtone when i am receiving a phone call. what do i do? I am seriously freaking out
I've tried restoring my phone, ejecting my SIM card, resetting network settings, turning off photo stream, etc. How do I fix this?
April 02 I got home about 9am and was trying to use my phone to send a text and notice that I was unable to send one. I kept getting the red ! telling me that my text wasn't sent so I tried making a call without success. I kept getting call failed. So I attempt to look something in the Internet and I would either get the busy icon or the network timed out message. So I thought my service had been disconnected for some reason so I called AT&T to explain what was going on and to find out if my service had been interrupted without me knowing about it and the cust rep had me power down the phone and turn it back on and test it out and it appeared to be working until I got back home and it started all over again. I found myself having to power it off and on just so I could do things with it. Today I come to realize that this problem seem to only happen when I am home. I don't know what has changed at my home to cause this to be happening. I don't know what to do to fix this problem. Do anyone know what it could be.
Ok so i recently texted my friend and the iMessage goes to both him and his dad when i txt to his number! Is there a fix because all my texts that are set to my friend are being read by his dad. Plus, when the dad replies, it gets mixed with my friend's messages so it gets confusing.
How is it possible to redirect text messages from specific numbers to email or some other means of viewing them? When I view the phone log, there are no texts from my number on my soon to be ex-husbands phone. It shows an Internet data exchange, but no text message. Yet he receives texts from other people, and their numbers appear. How is he able to "hide" messages from me, and still view them and respond without my number showing up on the phone log? Does he have a second phone he's forwarding to, an email account, or some app? Like I said, its only my messages that are "hidden" because he's somehow able to keep his girlfriend from seeing them.
My phone is definitely broke because it keeps saying I am out of storage and I only have 4 apps, no music, and about 70 photos. When people send me texts, I do not receive them and every time I try to open an app it closes out of it.
When receiving or placing calls the earpiece on my phone is silent. I can only hear the caller when the phone is on speakerphone. Any suggestions?
Tonight a coffee cafe, I dropped my iPhone 4 from the counter to the ground, which was around six feet. (I was without a case, by the way. Coincidentally, I left the house asking if I should bring it or not.) I picked up, the phone laying screen-first. Nothing was cracked, and I put in my pocket. Afterwards, I was drinking my coffee, and I noticed the screen only showed a blue, fairly dim light. I can still receive calls, texts, and that stuff, but can't see anything.Is this a common problem with iPhone screens breaking? I'm always careful about my devices (which, surprisingly, I'm not terribly upset about being without an iPhone. I've become addicted to it as of lately), and needed some help regarding this issue.
Siri keeps sending iMessages, even if the person receiving has a Nokia or blackberry, and I can't see a way to change this, because it is really getting on my nerves. Can you change this?! It's really annoying.
I have an iPhone 4s that stopped receiving signal (from O2) despite numerous reboots. The SIM (and provider) works in another 'phone. Therefore I decided to backup and restore the iPhone in case it was a software bug. However upon restore, it gets 3/4 of the way through and then iTunes reports that an unexpected error has occurred (-1) and the iPhone reboots back into recovery mode. Trying to restore to the new 6.1.3 and I have attempted to flash with a separate download of the .ipsw and also tried it on a different PC, both running iTunes 220.127.116.11. There is no antivirus or firewall active. I guess there could be an underlying hardware fault and not just software as I suspected? Any ideas what it might be? Nick
I have and iPhone 5 and I need to keep my text messages private as its private messages! How can I apply a password or pass code on my text messages? Is there an app for it? I don't want one which you've for to decode the texts or the texts are deleted after being read!
I can't receive nor can I receive text what should I do?
My 16gb iPhone 4S keep tell me that my storage is almost full and I don't have enough space for any upgrades. I don't have any music or videos on my phone. I deleted all old emails, texts, contacts and apps but still nothing. When I check my settings, I noticed that my Instagram is at 732mb and it keeps rising. Now it's at 814mb. Please help!!!!!
Hey everyone, I have an iphone 4 and over the past few weeks it has just randomly been losing my contacts. I have them all backed up in my computer, but it is still annoying and worrisome. I don't have iCloud syncing turned on, nor does it happen after I have synced or anything. It will just happen in the middle of the day while it is sitting on my desk. I'll look over to answer a text or something and notice all my contacts gone and my texts and phone calls are just listed by numbers. It has only been happening recently. I have 1.6 GB of space left (of a 16 GB iphone 4) so I don't think it is a space issue, but what do I know? Could it be deleting my contacts because its out of room? I'm totally at a loss. Geez. Any help?
I have a 16 GB. iPhone and "other" is 7.19 GB. how do i get rid of or reduce that? I have already deleted all of my texts.
I am receiving a storage full message

I cant send or recieve texts from my girlfriend who has an andriod from verizon. Any ideas why this might be so?
DNS feature not working properly after latest update. When DNS is active calls from Favorites do not go through and is sent to voicemail. texts from favorites also do not go through. Why even have this feature when it does not function properly.
