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
My iPhone cannot received any call from other but still can make call to other ... How to make it ?
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?
I got the iphone 5 about 6 months ago and have had wifi reception problems the entire time. I spend most of my time in my entertainment room (studio) which is on the opposite end of the house from the router. I have an imac, an apple tv2, an ipad, and (2) iphone 4 all using the same wifi and housed in this same room. They all have no problem picking up the signal and staying connected. My wife and her son both have iphone 4S and never lose connection when they are in my room. It's very frustrating because I was so excited about being able to mirror my phone through the apple tv and hd tv. I own an AT&T iphone 4 and a Verizon iphone 4 that aren't capable of mirroring. I have the original ipad which isn't capable of mirroring. My wife's 4S and her son's 4S are both capable and do it with ease but it's their phones, not mine. So I stayed patient knowing I would get the next upgrade and it was just a matter of time. Wrong. Between 5 phones, a desktop, a tablet, apple tv, PS3......My iphone 5 was the only one that won't connect. I am not talking about it loses the signal or cuts in and out, I am saying you have to walk halfway down the hall to even get it to detect the signal in the first place. Not a chance in **** of it actually staying connected to it. I talked to Apple Support about the problem and asked if the iphone 5 had a weaker antenna or if there was a setting that needed to be adjusted. They were polite to me but in so many words let me know that my assessment was ridiculous and news to them. Well okay, no big deal, I just chalked it up as that maybe I got a dud this time as far as the antenna goes. Then, about a week ago, I dropped the phone and shattered the front glass and lcd. Luckily I had insurance and was able to get a brand new replacement. The problem is the antenna reception is exactly the same. So this was not an isolated incident and I wasn't crazy for asking about it. I don't see how they haven't received tons of complaints about this issue. I love Apple products and probably just expect perfection because I have never had any major problems with any of my Apple devices. But it is an unpleasant surprise that the newer model takes several steps back on such an important feature. Sorry for the rant and I remain positive that this issue can be addressed, if it hasn't already. P.S.....The iphone 5 that I got two days ago has an awesome new feature. If you are using the phone for an actual phone call, the person you are talking to can't be heard whatsoever. If you can get them to talk really loudly and repeat themselves at least three times, you will have a greater chance of comprehending the purpose of the call.
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.
how come when I make a call on Facetime, I can see the person I'm calling but they can't see me?
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?
Internet and texting working. Calls not working. incoming outhgoing both. Rings but can hear anything on either sides. Please help!
I bought a Belkin Charge + Sync Dock for my iPhone 5 (the one that includes the cable) in February. It was a flimsy, crappy device from the start, but I figured I might as well use it.Four months have passed and now the lightning port on my iPhone 5 has started to deteriorate very quickly and noticibly. I would only charge my phone with the dock and I wouldn't use the lightning cable that came with my phone or any other cord for that matter. I went on a trip so I took my lightning cable with me and it would only charge at an odd angle. I also noticed the plug was very loose inside the port. This became true with the dock as well. The dock was flimsy and wobbly at the start and now would only charge at a very odd angle too. Any cord I use barely works, and my phone does not charge at night anymore. I know it is not a problem with my cords, because I tried my friend's cords and they also did not work. I know the dock ruined my port because that was the only thing I charged with for four months.Who should I go to for help? Should I call Belkin and ask for a return? Would my Apple 1-year limited warranty (I do not have AppleCare) cover a new phone?
Hi, i would like to know are there any program that let me know about waiting call if i called someone and he was already had another line or call i think is useful function and i want to put it in iphones smart phone.
title says it all, I can't get to a phone call as I've had my icloud hijacked. But the screen REQUIRES a serial number to continue. REALLY??? Apple drives me crazier every year.
I would like to see the call history for one specific number. Is that possible??...could do it on my blackberry, but can't find it on the iphone! Please help!!
Recently I have been experiencing problems with my iPhone 5, if I am away from a wifi connection I experience high battery drain & the phone will sometimes get hot.Generally I am in the office or at home & the phone will be connected to a wifi hotspot, however yesterday I was out of the office in meetings etc, I didn’t have access to any wifi so used 3G data, I was in London in areas with generally good 3G coverage. The battery went from 100% to 0% in 9 hours with what I would call minimal usage as follows.4 minutes worth of calls.25 received emails5 sent emails9 photos taken1 hour streaming music via Bluetooth20 minutes reading from news stand5 minutes in the facebook app5 minutes using the Maps app2 minutes viewing London Tube Map app This appears to be a problem with the data receiving part of the phone as when I have access to wifi the battery life is generally fine. I have had iPhones for about 3 years & never had issues like this. Has anyone else experienced similar problems?
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
Hi everyone, I am trying to sell my old iPhone 4S as I have now got an iPhone 5, and I have tried to contact optus to ask them if they can unlock the 4S so I can sell it, but they don't think they sold it to me, I must have bought it from Apple and they cannot unlock it. Does anyone have any advice on how to get my phone unlocked? Thank youKirsten
Why doesn't iOS 6 or 7 have the ability to "click to call" any 10-digit number in the "contact notes"? This is a simple and quick option to create, isn't it? I get so tired of copying and pasting phone numbers in the "notes" section of my contact cards. I should not have to do that. By the way, I should not have to make a contact card for everyone whose phone number is associated with a contact. Please advise.
I took taxi n when I alight , my phone drop inside taxi. Very confirm that after alighting I never go anywhere n standing at same place and waiting for my friend. I know the taxi number also n I realized that I lost phone about 5 minutes time so call my phone and check . First ringing but never answer, but second off the phone already. So I called to taxi company n inform . But they replied nothing inside. Lost at golden mile center, Singapore
Does anyone know how to set up call forwarding with conditions?
It's almost 6 months since I've encountered this problem. I already requested my carrier to have my iphone 4s replacedand a series of testing was done to my iphone 4s before they found out this it was defective. Now, I have my new iphone 4s but the same problem was again encountered. The message delivered late and sometimes messages aren't received at all. Though I have a complete network bar as seen on the upper corner of the screen, incoming calls aren't received and outof coverage area. Hope you can help me on this.
I have an iPhone 4S. My software and iTunes versions are up to date. My computer runs Windows XP (not so up to date, I know). Here's my dilemma: I'm in the middle of a legal battle (details don't really matter). Point is, I need the ENTIRE conversation to use as evidence in court. Phones are not allowed in the courtroom so I'm left with no other option except to figure out how to print them. I have called my service provider to try and get the transcripts. They told me to call the Apple Help Center. I called Apple, they told me to talk to my service provider. The typical run around. I finally spoke with someone who somewhat sounded like they knew what they were doing, but their only suggestion for me was to download an app that would allow me to export the messages off of my phone onto my computer. Unfortunately, he could not suggest any app inparticular (go figure). Here's my other problem: because I'm in the middle of a legal battle, I'm a little short on funds. Does anyone know of any programs for download that are similar to BackupTrans that I can use for free? OR, there is an app in the AppStore called "SMS Export" made by Fabrizio Farenga for $5.99... Can anyone tell me if this app is worth the 6 bucks to purchase (does it actually work?)? I desparately need this conversation to use in court. Someone please give me some ideas!
Hi all, i will list my problems and see what you all think,,,,, i have a iphone 4s on vodafone running 6.1.3 firmware, for the first 11/12mths i would say this phone was faultless ( taking around 200 calls a day), recently the phone refuses to make calls and send txt messages, it wont even connect to the internet using 3g, it has to have wirelesss connectivity for the browsers to work. i took it to the local vodafone shop and they insisted it was the sim card at fault, even though i did try it in my other phone (nokia E50-2), so i took the replacement sim anyway. checks already done:- i have taken my vodafone contract sim from the iphone and placed it in the nokia, it works fine sending and recieving both calls and txti have taken my vodafone PAYG sim out of the nokia and placed it in the iphone, it refused to work but worked fine in the nokiai have reset the network settings, i have deleted all apps from the iphone and done a full restore, but it still refuses to workit shows full signal strength all the time where i live, as does the nokia, if i try to call it from the nokia it tells me the phone is not available even though they are sat side by side with full signal, if i try to call the nokia it comes back called failed.i have tried to send a txt message to my own phone number only for it to come back failed, yet in the nokia it sends no problem.vodafone refuse to admit it is a problem with there network and it is an iphone issue, the phone is now 13mths old and out of warranty (typical), i requested the iphone be unlocked from vodafone to check other networks, this has now been done so i put a spare O2 sim in the iphone and it sends and recieves both calls and text with no issues, yet vodafone still say it is not a network problem!!!!!!! is anyone else having similar problems to mine??? or is it something wrong with the phone???? i personnaly think when the phone was updated to the 6.1.3 firmware it has a problem with vodafone, plese tell me what you think, i am going crazy with this phone, cant believe its not kissed the wall or other hard surface yet.
Hey guys, I can play music and hear it just fine, with or without headphones. When I press on the keypad I can hear the noise it makes, I can hear calls with my headphones plugged in, or when the speaker option is on, however, unless this happens, I can't hear the person I am on the phone with. I've tried restarting, resetting, earasing all content, and restoring it with iTunes and that didn't work. I've tried cleaning the ports with a toothbrush, or pressing gently on the microphone and that didn't work.I've tried calling with the headphone on, and taking them off in the middle of the call and that didn't work either. I am currently outside of the US so I can't go to an Apple store, so I am wondering if any of you guys have been succesful at solving this problem. Your help is much appreciated Thanks again,
My phone sounds like its breaking up when I call. Then when the other person answers all I hear is my voice echoing and all they hear is static Same happens when they call me. Data over the phone - to Vodaphone - is fine. I can browse. With or without wifi. My speaker and mic work fine.
My wife has an iPhone 4 and in the middle of conversations she becomes unable to hear the other person. When the call starts she can hear them fine, but after a few minutes (sometimes less than a minute) she stops being able to hear the caller, but the caller can still hear her. Switching to speakerphone does not help. This is a recent issue. The phone has worked fine for the last 2 years but just started this issue in the last few weeks. Any ideas?

I recently got the iPhone 5 from Tmobile. It's my first iPhone and I've been enjoying the features very much. The only problem I've noticed, and it's rather annoying, is a 4-5 second speech delay. I called Tmobile and had them send me a new one, hoping this was simply a defect of the particular phone. But I've just set up my new iPhone and it has the same problem. I've spoken to numerous people on Verizon, Tmobile, Sprint, AT&T, and landlines and have experienced this problem with each conversation. I have done this is different areas of my home as well as different areas around town with the same results.I've had many of them repeat words or phrases after I've finished speaking and the delay is always 4 or 5 seconds. Because of this, conversation is difficult. There is a lot of speaking at the same time due to this delay and I find it very frustrating. Before I call Tmobile about this phone, I wanted to ask if anyone else has experienced this issue. Is it a tmobile problem or an iPhone problem.
I have iphone 4s, this morning it was showing not enough storage etc, and i was unable to cancell this notification, also unable to shutdown, unable to make or recieve call, any suggestion. Its last month of warrenty......and i am away from Uk where I purchased this
I have people complaininmg that when phoning me on the iPhone 5 it rings twice then goes silent as if forwarding the call or something then starts ringing again but differently to the innitial 2 rings? Tried network, but other phones ring correct
Why Apple has not given call recording feature inbuilt in Phone application itself. All external app's are internet based and cannot be used everywhere.
Hello! I live in Singapore. Our service provider allows us calls to countries around the world at no addional cost if we dial 019 first. However, I can't seem to use it with Siri. If i want to call my brother in california, I would have to dia 0191818xxxxxxx It works when i punch it in, but siri won't actually make the call. says it's unable to. Same with anyone else overseas. (I live in this country alone.. all my family is abroad and I would like to be able to use Siri to make calls to family and friends internationally using 019). Please let me know if there is a fix for this. I wish Siri would just dial whatever number you tell it to without restrictions. Thanks in advance! Sagar.
I would like to know if when I receive a text message how I may get my phone to read the incoming message aloud
I just got the phone and when I place a call, the people can hear me, but I can barely hear them and I have the volume on high
Got a replacement iphone 4 today. Could not recover contacts etc due to water damage. New phone won't let us make or receive calls until we hook up to itunes. Don't know what that means. Any help would be appreciated. Phone problem or Sprint problem? Thanks!
I've just upgraded to an iphone 5 and when I'm on a call in the car, the call keeps cutting out and the other party get a message saying the person you are talking to is driving and cannot speak, please wait. I've taken the phone to an Apple shop and they say it isn't possible for my phone to do this but it keeps doing it. Any advice greatly appreciated.
Dose anyone's iPhones 5 have a very lite not so strong vibration when You get a call message or email please get back to me as soon as possible just want to know if its normal or not.
Apparently, since I loaded some antivirus/download apps, I am having problems with my telephone acoustics. I can make a call and hear the recipient but they cannot hear me. The mute button is not switched on ! I have tried removing recent apps but the problem remains. Any suggestions ? Regards, Sandy3gs
Messaging, facetime, and emailing works fine. Only certain phone calls (certain numbers) do not go through. Often requires I dial the same number multiple times (>8 times) and call may go through. The other end has no problem calling me. Sometimes the other end registers a missed call or a short ringing but I cannot hear the ringing on my end. The phone starts counting the seconds as if the call has been placed but no connection is actually made (it does not connect with the other end's voicemail either.
Hey guys Ive had my IPhone 5 since the day it came out, so now it had started to have its problems, and more than one. Ive got three: - brightness turns down automatically to the point I cant see the screen and when I go back to settings the brightness bar is still up to to bright and I just have to touch it for it to come back to normal. - When I call someone or when someone call me, the place where I should hear them talk back does not work, I have to hear them on the speaker. - When I charge my phone the lightning connector doesnt have a good connection and cuts out of charging looks like its lose. Has anyone had one of these problems, and how was it fixed? or when you gave it to Apple, how long did it take to be fixed? or did you get a new IPhone? Or feel free just to talk about what you think Thanks guys!
My boyfriend is currenlty deployed overseas. When he calls using a calling card the number shows up as "unknown" caller on my phone but it does not ring. I can see him calling but my phone makes no noise.
When Siri finds my contact requested with two phone numbers (or more) and then asks which number to call- I say "Mobile" and then SIRI goes to the map program to find Mobile, AL. Stops there. How do I stop this and get SIRI to call the mobile number? This is frustrating.
As I have stated, iphone will not pick up any network and just stays on searching. Also, when "call" button is "pressed" the buttons does the graphic of being pressed, but doesn't make the call. Also des bnot receive calls or text messages. Have tried turning on and off/rebooting, turning airplane mode on and off, checked to make sure cellular data is on, resetting network settings. No changes. Anyone?
Just bought a brand new iPhone 5 from Rogers (Canada) in December. For the month that I've had it I've had MAJOR problems with this device. I've had no major problems with my iPhone 3G and iPhone 4S, by the way.- incoming calls get randomly dropped. No "busy signal", the line simply drops dead for whoever tries to call me. It doesn't even alert me that someone tried to call me. I'll only find out later if that person attempts to call again. But what if it's an important call and the person doesn't try calling again? Then I'm screwed. I've tested this by calling my iPhone 5 from another cellphone by holding each phone in one hand. Out of 20 calls, at least 4-5 calls are dropped- Touch screen irresponsive- Very weak signal (on my 3G and 4S the signal bar is usually completely full or one bar from full, on my iPhone 5 it's almost always only half full or less), the signal drops randomly outside (especially when I'm driving, the signal will just poof)I've already exchanged the phone TWICE. First time they exchanged it without question. Second time they told me it could be a carrier issue then told me to reset, restore, etc etc, then gave me a new one again. I'm on my third one, none of these problems are fixed.What are the chances I got 3 defective phones in a row? Seriously what is going on here? I've installed pretty much nothing on this phone except Facebook, Twitter, and Skype. Yes I've resetted and restore like N times, and I'm on latest firmware. What should I do? I don't even know if it's a Rogers problem or I've just had the worst luck in the world with 3 defective phones in a row, because none of the customer service people are able to tell me exactly what in the world is going on.
Please help brand new iphone 5 just activated today everything works great except i cant recieve text or calls but i can send both
Hello.i unlocked my iPhone 3G and I'm even getting a full signal bar but I can't even make a emergency call or a normal call.cqn anyone please tell me the solution?
