I have just received the instructions from my network to unlock my iphone 4s. When I put the new sim in the phone, will it lock to that network, or is it now free of any network for life? Thanks
I purchased a silver 64 GB launch iPhone 5s (Verizon) from the apple online store. The device was restored from my 4s backup. While using my new 5s, it would occasionally crash and randomly reboot itself. At first I thought this was software related because of iOS7. After installing 7.0.1 and 7.0.2 the random reboots continued. In the middle of October I made a Genius bar appointment and they determined it was hardware and software failures. The Genius had me keep the same phone and instructed me to restore the iPhone 5s and use as "new phone". The reboots continued happening about 3 to 7 times a day, mostly while unlocking the phone. Another Genius Bar appointment was made and the phone was exchanged for a replacement. I was instructed (again) not to restore the device from a backup. The random reboots continued. Another Genius Bar appointment, replacment phone was issued and I was asked not to install any apps and see if that helped the situation. It did not help at all. I contacted Applecare and was redirected to Level 2 support. I was told to play the lottery because of the (bad) luck I was having was unheard of. Applecare Level 2 instructed me to get another replacement (my 4th iPhone 5s) and use the phone as "new" without installing apps or Touch ID. Less than 10 minutes after recieving my replacement iPhone, it rebooted itself after unlocking. I went back to the Genius Bar and they were in disbelief. They had me pull the SIM, it rebooted, log out of my Apple ID from the device, it rebooted. The Genius restored the phone as "new" and instructed me not no sign in to the device with my Apple ID. So, at this point I had a glorified phone and web surfing device. Two days went by and I had no random reboots. Applecare Level 2 instructed me to sign back in with my Apple ID, and within 24 hours it was rebooting again. Applecare Level 2 had a "white box" iPhone 5s shipped to an Apple Store near me, because they believed I may have been receiving mine from a bad batch of phones. Well, I can assure you that is not the case. 10 minutes after recieving my new phone (with new SIM) it has continued rebooting itself. Since the middle of October I have not been able to listen to my music library on my phone, constantly had to reinstall apps and speak with Apple technical support over and over again. I know I am not the only person experiencing this, but they cannot solve my issue. Is it possible that my Apple ID is corrupt? That is the only thing left that I can think of. Oh, and my iPad Air has no issues at all... go figure.
I have gone through 4 charging cables for my iPhone 5. Is it possible to claim one free of charge from Apple?
i changed my email for my apple account online and now i can't log into itunes on my iphone 5 can any one help please?
So basically: I opened up the control center yesterday and clicked play on the music and the phone switched itself off then back on. Ever since then, it's gone crazy... Bare in mind this is a new replacement and I'm booked in at Apple on Thursday but that's a long time to go with a non-working piece of ****. So anyway;The iPhone restarts itself (comes up with grey/green lines on the screen then turns itself off/on).The battery will not update, I could leave it charging for literally all day and it'd stay at 1% but if I restart the phone, only then will it update.I have tried resetting the phone, setting up as new etc but the same problem occurs... Any guidance right now? I can't deal with this for another 6 days... Thanks.
Hello guys,a friend of my is flying to Florida in the end of December and he offered to buy me an iPhone 5s. Yeah, great - but then I looked at Apple online Store website and saw that he would have to wait 3-5 business day. He's going there on holiday and we don't live in USA, so it would be great if he could just buy a phone in a "real" Apple Store instead of using Apple online Store. Do you think that this is possible? Do they sell unlocked iPhone's at Apple Store? If not, where to buy it without simlock, bestbuy or what>
I'm saving up to get an iPhone 5s from America since it is way to expensive in Australia, but will it work in Australia? That's what's been bothering me the most. If I buy it in America, and get it shipped to Australia, will it work? Because I've looked at their Apple page, and when you try to buy one online, they make you pick a service plan..Please help?
I can't get my phone to record a voice mail without having to call my phone and create new voice message.
i only got my iphone 5s less than 15 days ago. and tonight i took my case off it for about 30 minutes while i was laying in bed, so i did not drop it or have water damage or anything. but when i went to put my case back on my phone, it did not fit. my phone was bent. i read online that this has happened to a couple of people. does anyone know anything about this? or what i should do?
How to create free apple id
My phone won't sync to my iTunes, when I plug it in it gets stuck on 'waiting for changes to be applied' and when you check the phone it shows the music on there but when you try and play them they just skip them as they aren't on there. How do I resolve this? It is a software or hardware issue?
I want to buy an IPHONE 5S Model A1457 in order to be able to use it in Spain (Europe ) . Now I am living in the US but in a few months I will move to Spain . So is it possible to order this specific model in apple's online store?
i dont want to restore my iphone 4s i will lose all my games and i would have to get them all back if you guys made it where i could keep all my games when restoring i would i just dont want to lose everything maybe is there someother way i can get the restriction pass code without restoring it??????
My iPhone 4s refuses to play sound when the headphones are not in. When the headphones are in however, it works perfectly fine! This is most annoying, could someone please help me I have not dropped it and it has not been in any contact with liquid.
I had to order a phone online as no stores has the 5s 64g GSM phone. Original tea was 2+ weeks. Then I end up getting it a few days later. When I got it (shipped from China) the phone itself was smudged, greasy fingerprints all over the (interior) plastic & it was missing the SIM key and half the paper documentation. When I pulled the plastic off and everything seemed okay, the worst being on the plastic, but then noticed a chip on the metal bezel, visible even with the leather apple case on. The EarPod case was also smudged and scratched, looked like it had been slid across something rough. The home button is also SO LOUD it wakes my partner up if I have to change apps when he's sleeping. He's not a terribly light sleeper either. No amount of cleaning or edge-pushing dampens the super loud click of the home button that you have to use hundreds of times a day. So is it possible that this phone is used/refurb (and sold as new, $1000?!?!!) or is the quality control THAT ABYSMAL on a phone that cost a small fortune? I have AppleCare on it, how long do I have to get this dealt with and what are the steps? I've had iPhones & iPods for 10 years and never had to go into a store for repair/issues. I have pictures on my 4s that show the state of the phone as received. Will I need to make a Genius Bar appointment and does it matter which store I take it to? I SO don't want to be messing with this, but it's so annoying that I got something I paid a premium for in such awful condition.

Well, no that will not work. An iPhone 5c uses a nano-SIM and you need a regular sized SIM for an iPhone 3G or 3Gs. But any regular size SIM you can get hold of long enough to activate it in iTunes will be fine.
My iPhone is somehow being monitored by an ex. I've gotten a new phone since we've broken up (same number though), but he still responds, in real time, to text messages I send to my boyfriend. How is he doing this? It's very creepy. I've had someone suggest that he might have cloned my phone, but even though I've done some basic research online, I still don't understand how he could do this. He hasn't had physical access to my phone. I want this to stop, but I have no idea even where to start. Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thanks.
I have and iPhone 5 and the camera on my phone is loose, rattles, and almost falling out. I have already replaced my phone months ago through an apple store because my lock button jammed. Would apple replace/fix my phone due to the camera being loose for free?
iPhone 5s, IOS 7.0.4 I listen primarily to podcasts using the podcast app from podcasts that I host on my home PC and download via my home WiFi network. I find that occasionally, the podcast will suddenly stop, requiring me to actually start the Podcast app again. The Podcast app remembers where I was, to within a second or so. Also, I find that if I use the apple headset to pause the play of the podcast, and I use the apple headset button to start again, music using the Music plays, not the podcast. Sometimes, in this situation, the music is playing and yet the task management (double tap home) shows the Music app isn't even running! I find this seems to happen more often when I leave WiFi range of my secured home network. I have WiFi on, but have 'Ask to join' disabled. This is annoying, particularly if I am riding my bike as I have to dig the iPhone out of my bag to 're-set' it. Anyone else experiencing this? Any idea on what I should do to mitigate or eliminate this behaviour?
I am having problem installing a free software in my iphone 4. It asks me to go to itunes and fill the payment details..someone please help me make my apple id into a free user id.
iPhone all free apps
I have an iPhone 4s. Jailbroken in a way that I like it, but now it's being used as basically an iPod touch, since I got an iPhone 5s. How do I go about transfering my 4s app saves (includes games & other apps, like MagicPlan & Alarm Clock)? I've read about something called iExplorer, but also read it doesn't seem to work with transfering saves to an iPhone 5s. Is their an official safe way to do this? When I sync the 2 devices, only some saves seem to copy over. Giant Bolder of Death, for exaple, seems to sync saves just fine. Pudding Monsters, Fruit Ninja, & others don't sync at all. Those games & others are as if they are new. I'd much rather get my saves transfered over. Granted the games I have are mostly time wasters, things like MagicPlan & a few other apps I have some important things saved with and would like them on the 5s.
I have no data plan for phone because I use free wi-fi. Since latest update (iOS7.0.4), I am unable to send/receive mms. Texts-sms are fine. This happened about 5-6 weeks ago when making original 7.0 update, but was eventually able to fix it. Can't seem to find solution this time.
I recently got an iPhone 5 almost two months ago as a replacement device for an older iPhone 5 under warranty. Last week its display got shattered soooooo easily. I visited the Apple Store at Cambridge, UK and I spoke to an Apple Genius. I explained how unsatisfied I was with how easy the phone screen broke and I was informed that in order to have it replaced I needed to pay £120, something that I was not happy with. When I kindly asked whether it whould be possible to cover it for free, the Genius turned very unhelpful and unkind and he implied that I was lying to him about how the screen broke. Whenever I brought up reasonable arguments, he would just repeat: "This is accidental damage that was caused by impact and you have to pay just like everyone else". He also mentioned Apple's highest standards of quality control. I already know that my best friend got his iPhone 4 glass fixed twice for free, and having read a number of stories in the Apple Forums, I just want to ask why some people get repairs for free, while other people are met with unfriendliness and unkindness?
I have made some purchases on my iphone, and now they won't sync to my macbook. It is set up to sync over wi-fi but this very rarely happens. I opened i-tunes on my macbook and selected my iphone (shown over wi-fi) followed by sync. It then stalls on 'applying changes' for 5 mins, completes, and nothing has transfered over. The music sometimes ppears in my macbook i-tunes, but with a grey circle next to it and i'm not able to play. Tn minutes alter it's then disappeared. New purchases also dob't get added to my purchased playlist. This is really annoying. Why do you think it is acceptable to deliver software with patchy features, especially when you charge such a premium rate? I don't mind paying higher prices for apple products, but it would be nice if even the basic functionality worked?!?!?!?!?
I heard the iphone 5 wake up button has a disign defect. Will they give me a free repairing even my iphone is over warranty?
If i bought iphone 5s from apple retail store on t mobile with free contract and with full price it will work with egypt's local carrier ????

I'm trying to delete old games that just sits in my iCloud? How can I do that on my iPhone 4?? Help me please...
I have a Suzuki Kizashi and used to play my music on my iPhone 4S (not updated to iOS 7) through my car USB port. I bought the 5s and now my dash shows the music is playing and I can change the songs but NO AUDIO will come through the speakers. Any ideas? Helllllp!!!
can i receive iphone services if my warranty is expired for 1 month. is there any way where i could extend my warraty.
How do you pair a device once you forgotten it? I accidentally hit forget this device when I was trying to pair my iPhone 4S to hands free in my truck.
I bought iPhone 5s with no contact and free-sim. The back of iPhone is labeled Model A1533. However, in the Xcode, "iPhone 5s (Model A1453)" is appeared. What's the problem with that?
Whenever I try to download new apps or install previously downloaded apps from the App Store, I see the "Open" button after download is complete, but clicking on Open doesnt do anything. I dont see the newly downloaded apps on my home screen. Infact for some reason even Passbook which was earlier visible has disappeared from my home screen. I am using iOS 7.0.4 and have enough free space to accomodate new stuff. Any ideas?
I have an iPhone 4S . I don't have the airplay icon anywhere on my device . I can no longer use netflix . It tells me to shut off airplay mirror mode . But airplay is not in the control center or the slide up feature from the home button .
So, here's the scenario: My wife surprised me with a new iPhone 5C, to replace my iPhone 3GS... It got activated at the AT&T store, and I elected to not install Keynote, Numbers, Pages, ect, since I was not on a wireless network... Shortly there-after, I "restored" my new phone from my iMac, which had my last iPhone 3GS backup on it... (so as to get all the software onto it quickly...) I was looking at the App Store to download the free apps, but see that they aren't coming up as free... Any thoughts as how to "make" them free again? Will simply downloading with my Apple ID download them with no charge? Thanks, Bob
It didnt do anything. It just steps to solve problems online. I want a mail to contact apple care or apple support plz
Everytime I try to download an app it it goes to my security check n then tells me I need to use another credit card even though the app is for free?
Everytime I've tried to purchase an app since downloading IOS 7 (don't get me started on the oh-so-many things that don't work with this new operating system, although this one really ticks me off) I can't download a single app from the app store. The message (above) is what I get with "APP" being the actual name of the app (ie. "Instagram"). The apps I already have on the phone will automatically update without a problem, this has to do with the actual new purchases (either free or paid) that I would like to make. I currently have the most up-to-date version of IOS 7 v. 7.0.4 I have tried to do the following to no avail: 1) A soft reset: Holding the top bottom and the home button simultaneously until the phone powers itself off and automatically comes back on. 2) Signed in and out of my Apple iTunes account. 3) Signed out of my Apple iTunes account, did a soft reset, signed back in once the phone powered back up. 4) Changed the credit card information to a different credit card just in case for some strange reason Apple didn't like my credit card. Any suggestions that anyone else may have (and please don't link to a troubleshooting article, those are hardly helpful) would be great. I've looked through Apple's support communities and haven't found a single answer to this question, although I've seen similiar questions and no real answers thus far. Thank you.
I have a iphone 5, but some games can't play, but others can play
I got my iphone 5s on november 5 and since the first day i got it, it has had a lot of problems. WILL THE 1-YEAR WARRANTY COVER THIS!?!? • the slow-mo camera is randomly laggy. So laggy that it seems to skip whole seconds when i play it back. • sometimes when i unlock it, the screen acts as if it were cracked and flashes black and white like if i dropped it. It sometimes last for around 10 secs. This too happens to apps, the apps flash black and white and i cant click on them. • the phone also randomly turns off. I can be doing any task on the phone when suddenly my phone is turning off.
The iPhone 5s was working perfectly until I updated to 7.0.4 about 2 weeks ago. Since then have been experiencing several serious problems: 1) Cannot connect with iTunes on my Macbook Pro. So, I cannot back up or sync files. 2) The screen starts to have serious flickering (like inverting colors scattered like static across the screen) 3) The screen issue affects the touch interface -- so, often need to turn the unit off with a force-reboot. 4) Once in a while, like when fully charged, the phone appars and operates fine. But then, when the camera app is invoked, the screen issues return immediately. Have researched this online quite a bit and seen a number of various problems but none like what I am experiencing. The hardware seems fine -- since when I bought the phone with a previous iOS version it worked flawlessly. Pretty sure it had to do with the iOS update. Any help is appreciated in advance! Thank you.Chris
does i phone 5s model a1533 sim free phone will work in india if i buy it online from apple store
I've had my iPhone 4s for 2 years now and recently (2 weeks ago) I noticed a white spot in the left top corner. The spot has an odd shape and is better seen from an angle and on a white background. The spot is small and barely noticable, I can live with it. But last week a similar spot appeared in the right top corner. That spot is brighter, larger and more noticable. Worst of all, it seems to get bigger every day. I did search on the web but all results are about new iPhones showing spots. The advice people is given is to get it replaced. My iPhone isn't new, so I can't get a free replacement. Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem and what I can do to fix the issue?
If I order an iPhone 5s online through http://www.apple.com/hk/ （Hong Kong）, which model will I get. I could not find an option to select the model. What I get were the options to select color and capacity. But there were several models shown on http://www.apple.com/hk/ （Hong Kong）… I was so wondering what I will get?
Hi, I've had my 5S for nearly 2 months now (firmware up to date) and it's been fine apart from 1 problem, it reboots when I play games on it.It doesn't get a blue screen like some people get but the screen goes white with the black apple logo for a few secs and then the home screen appears. Weirdly, When it happens the home and sleep button both become unresponsive and sometimes the screen does too for about 1 min and then it reboots. It's happened about 10 times since I've had it, it's been mostly happening when I play "Fifa 13" but it's not all the time some days it's fine. Today it happened when playing the game "Dead trigger 2" for the first time even thought I've been playing it nearly every day for 2 weeks. At first I though it could be down to Fifa but I can't find anybody with a problem with it, I played it on my 4S too with this problem.(As in writing this I remembered it also happened once when using a app called "movieshare" I did call apple support a few weeks ago but the women on the phone told me to "reset all settings" but that did not work.I thought about taking it to the store but what will I show them? I'd maybe have to play a game for 20-30 mins for it to happen IF it does happen as it's a hot and miss when it does. It a bit depressing this is happening as £630 is a lot of money and you would think this wouldn't happen for such a expensive phone. Any suggestions?
I bought A second hand Iphone online, and when i try to activate it it need an apple ID which I don't have And It Not accepting Mine (I can't contact the old phone owner ). Any Solutions ?
