My iphone 5 is one month old and I cannot talk for 2 hours without my battery dying. It wasn't like this when I got the phone last month but in the last week - it won't hold any charge. My OLD iphone that is 2 years old has a longer battery life than this with tons of use. I have been turning ALL of the apps off (which i should not have to do with a one month old phone) and I still can;t get 2 hours of use without the battery dying on me. tI's starting to annoy me and if my battery is bad I just want to go get a new phone. Is anyone else having this issue or does anyone know how to check to see if my battery is bad? Any ideas is this can fixed? Thanks in advance for the help
When a call or text is coming throug there is no sound. The settings seem fine. When I switch the side button to red nothing happens. What used to happen would be the bell sign would come up with a line through it indicating the ringer was switched off but now nothing happens whichever way I switch it. Vibrate is switched on in settings but it isn't vibrating either. Interestingly the alarm is working so the sounds are not completely gone. I have powered it off an back on etc., but it hasn't made any difference. Any advice. Thanks Paula
I had a story about not charging iPhone. PHcharge my iPhoneI insterday evening (Philippine Time). But it charged less than 1 second. It running out. I plug it anywhere but it not worked. I had to check the battery bar, i found that my iPhone is depleted fast. I checked the LCI but it white. I tried anything:A. Charged for at least 15 minutesB. Turn on and off the iPhone.C. Restart the iPhone.D. Plug it to the computer. But it failed. I will need to seek repair on repair shops? I don't attempt to repair this iPhone. I'm scared about this iPhone is not charging. What I'm going to do? Sincerely,Treshan
I bought the iPhone 5 from Star One Mobile in Sim Lim Square Singpore recently. After reaching my place , just found that the serial number and IMEI number in my iPhone 5 product and the packaging box are different. When I check on the website the packaging number shows the product is replaced but the number in product shows valid. Can some one explain the difference?I did not anticipate an Apple product having a difference in serial and IMEI number from the packaging --- probable that the Star one mobile could have changed the package?
hello sirmy phone is goes network connectionthere was display searchingplease check its the problem sir

Lately I've been turning off my phone and when I turn it back on battery is drained. Yesterday I turned it off at 80% and when I turned it back on 3 hours later it was at 62%. Then today I turned it off at 50% and when I turned it back on it was at 32%! Does anyone know why my iPhone is losing battery even when it's completely powered off? I feel like it shouldn't be losing any battery at all
There seems to be a lot of people out there dropping their Iphone in the bath so I thought I would share my experience of fixing mine.Firstly if its in warranty consult your dealer - if this doesn't help try the following: A lot of people say stick it in bags of rice / silicon, etc but here is a quicker, more reliable way which is far less likely to contaminate one of the connectors. You do not need any special equipment. Make sure phone is off (If you can still see the screen) - hold sleep and Home for 5 seconds and tap the red off button that appearsPop your oven on a low heat ( less than 100C) for 5 minutes.Wrap your phone inside a sock, doubled over a couple of times so the phone is well protected.Turn oven offPop phone into oven for 30 minutes or longer preferably You could use a hairdryer but be very careful to keep it moving to avoid any localised heat spots that could damage components. If the phone got really soaked you might want to jump down to taking the phone apart - if it is still full of water powering up or charging could result in further damage Let the phone cool and try to power up, if nothing happens check for any signs of water vapour still in the phone and repeat if present. Otherwise try charging and powering up Still no success? this step requires a very small crosshead (some need a 5star) screwdriver, don't compromise and try and use a larger one, damaged screws will cause you even more expense. Very cheap on ebay. Unscrew the 2 small screws at the bottom next to the speaker, slide the back up and lift away. Unscrew the very small screw holding the battery connector in place and pry up the connector (lift the side nearest the edge first). Be careful not to lose the screw or the small metal bracket under the connector. Use the plastic tab sticking up half way along the battery to ease the battery out (usual there is a small amount of glue on them). This will reset the phone (you will not lose anything but the phone will hopeful power up when the battery is replaced). This is a good time to try the drying procedure again to ensure there is no more moisture present. Reconnect the battery screw everything back in place and press the wake button. If this has not succeeded you may need specialist help to test more components.Good luck ( and I cannot stress enough - keep the temperature low when drying)
All of a sudden I lost my wifi signal....Checked out the settings and the WiFi is off and unable to turn it back on....i have powered down the phone...i have done a full restore and the wifi switched remains greyed out....any suggestions?
Ok so my iPhone is pretty new I got it like a few weeks ago. It was fine at first but now it loses battery super quick. I charge it over night and in the morning when I unplug it I literally lose a percent immediately and then I check Facebook for a bit and it goes down to 95-93%.Is this happening to anyone else? What do I do about it? I'm running on IOS 6.1.4 and have about 7GB left from my 32GB capacity.
Hello everyone! I've got a problem with my iPhone 4S and I hope someone here can give me a hint on how to fix this... Last year in March I was on vacation in Las Vegas (I live in Austria/Europe) and bought a new unlocked iPhone 4S GSM in the Apple Store in the Forum Shops in Las Vegas including AppleCare+ (I just learned that iPhones can only be serviced in the Country where they are bought - my bad). Lately I was browsing through my Apple support profile and noticed that my iPhone was not registered there. So I tried to enter the serial number of the device and got this message:We're sorry, but this is a serial number for a product that has been replaced. Please check your information and re-enter your serial number. If your information is correct, you may need to contact us. I knew this could not be true so I called Apple Care here in Austria and first I was told that - according to its serial number - my iPhone has been replaced, and that it never should have been sold. I also was told that I have no chance of getting any service for this device despite the Care Protection Plan because the device is invalid due to its status as "replaced". And last but not least I was told that I could never receive any service for this device because American devices cannot be repaired in Europe (I was not aware of this fact and would have expected the salesperson in the Apple Store to tell me because I definitely told him that I am from Austria). Meanwhile I wrote an email to the store where I bought the iPhone from but it's two days now and I have not received an answer (or any indication that my email was received) yet. Is there anything I can do? Yours,Michael
When I check the weather in the notification tray and in the built-in weather app it says it's Sunday and the temperature is 45 degrees where I am. That's incorrect. It's Thursday and 67 degrees. I also tried weather for major cities and it's showing the wrong day and temperature for them as well. I checked Yahoo Weather and that data is correct. I restarted my phone and at some point it showed the wrong data for my town in the local weather page, but the correct weather when I manually added my town, but when refreshing it's wrong for both. There's a number of complaints on Twitter about this. What's going on? How can Yahoo's weather be correct, but the iPhone's wrong since the iPhone weather app uses data from Yahoo?
I do not so much have a question, but a statement: I did the upgrade to iOS 6 last night. I had to delete a lot of apps to make room for the upgrade and did a small icloud back up to save space. But, after waiting and seeing the upgrade time kept going up and up, I just went to bed. Woke up in the middle of the Night to check and my phone said to connect to iTunes. When I did, it told me I had to restore my phone. So I had no choice because, it would not leave the connect to iTunes message on my screen otherwise. This is a horrible glitch!
I have Iphone 5 and try to sync it with my computer (Windows 7 Max.). I have already installed ITunes and verified my computer in AppStore. But anyway I have problems with syncing applications. For example, I've downloaded Translator and tried to install it to Iphone. I've clicked "Sync" in window "Programs", but it goes only up to the third step from four and fails. In window rights it is shown, that this program is already installed, but when I turn off my Iphone from computer, I check and can see, that programs were not installed.My computer is also already verified, so that I can connect it with Iphone. In common settings on Iphone I have already turned on restrictions so that I can install applications. Could you tell me what should I do? I hope that someone had the same problem.
Hi please tell me how can i check my iphone has network issue or not can it has any testing procedure so i want to know that i have my iphone issue or it has sim card problem so please let me know any useful tips in small time
I purchased an iPhone4 32 GB from my friend and i want to know that either this iPhone is Indian or not. Can any one tell me that is there any way to check this through IMEI number, Serial Number, iTunes or iCloud.
You are not addressing Apple here, we are users just like you. Also, not a good idea to put your personal number on the world wide forum here for anyone to get. The iPhone has never supported bluetooth file transfer. This is a known fact. check this support document for information on what bluetooth profiles the iPhone does support. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3647
My almost 6 month iPhone 5 had a bend along the SIM section of the phone. I made a genius appointment to check it out. I got a new iPhone 5. My question is about the support profile. It is listed a 'REPAIR' in My Support Profile. I thought this was an exchange, or is an exchange a type of repair?
Woke up this morning and went to check the time and my iPhone seemed like it was dead. It had been plugged in all night just as usual. Thought that maybe the charger was bad so I went to another charger but It would still not power on. I held the home and power button and it did power on asking to connect to iTunes. I ignored that and turned it off and back on. Now it seems fine and it was at 100% charge. My question is, What could have caused this? Should it be a concern and should I take it in to Apple to look at it?Thanks,Ben
hello i have iphone 4 and my screean is covered with multicoloured vertical lines,i double check my lcd and its works with other phone, I don't have any ideas what is wrong with this phone:( any ideas please hellp
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.
I need my phone to be locked in order to use my corporate email system, but I'm not sure if it is. I can only find previous strings about how to unlock a phone, not how to tell whether or not it's locked. And I don't have another SIM card to try out. Can someone please tell me how to check it? Just bought the phone 2 days ago at Best Buy and Verizon is my carrier. Thanks in advance!
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.
I connected my wife's iphone 5 to her computer to back it up, sync it and and check for updates. An error message came up and put the phone into recovery mode. Now we cannot get it out of recovery mode. We do not want to restore it as there are numerous photos that would be lost.Any ideas?
I can connect using wifi without any issues and surf the net. Connections seems to be fine and my friends who are on the same service have no issues. Any ideas on cause?
i know one of the pins has come out for sure because i put it under my lamp to check!WILL APPLE DEFOS REPLACE IT? ITS STILL FULLY UNDER WARRENTY!!!
Hello I have an iPhone 5 that I purchased upon release in New Zealand around December. Recentlly, more and more often, I will go to check messages or notifications on my phone by pressing the home or power button to wake it and display the lock screen (a simple enough task, one would imagine). However the screen will not show. They phone simply stays black. Sometimes I can press either button again and it wil wake, other times I will need to wait anywhere up to 10 minutes. I have tried factory restoring my phone to no avail. It is on the latest release of iOS and has had no water damage or major shock damage. Thanks for any help you can provide,Caleb
How can I check to see if my iPhone has AppleCare or not?
My Iphone 5 has been connected succesfully via bluetooth to my car for the past 5 months (Ford Fiesta). Yesterday I went to use it and it wont connect, I powered off the phone, turned bluetooth on/off still not working. I debonded all phones from the car and went to start afresh but that wont work either. When it is searching for devices it just seems to be stuck? I tried another Iphone 5 in my car and that connected no problems at all. Anyone have any ideas, it clearly must be the phone but wonder what on earth I have done.
"The iPhone Software update server could not be contacted. ...check your network." but my network is fine and works for everything except updating my iPhone 4.2.10 >> 5.x So what is the problem and how can I fix it?
the phone felt very warm after using it for about 30 minutes to move icons around, check email, browse the Web, and test a few apps. In fact, it became uncomfortably warm.
I upgraded from 3GS to 5 recently.My operator supports HD Voice calling.When I tried it from my iPhone 5 to any other phone which supports HD Voice, it was just regular call.In order to test we we in the same place several persons with HD Voice devices with the same operator.Between other devices it was OK.Putting others SIM cards into my phone didn't help. What else can I check? Any indicators, settings etc.?Is it iOS 6.1.3 which is installed or device itself?Wha could be done? Thanks for asnwering.
Hello. on December i purchased my iPhone 5 on eBay for about 530. Its under warranty until december 20 2013, not today while charging my iPhone at night i noticed my iPhone kept charging and uncharging itself, (the beep noise) it keept doing it for quite awhile and i checked up on it. It has some problems charging, i've never had any problems with it before. Now, i tried hard resetting and rebooting it a bunch of times but when i hard reset (dfu mode) my computer would not recognize it to even restore it. my computer won't even recognizes if the phone is connected. It's not the cables as i have an iPad 4 and i have 3 cables in total, all original apple products. All cables work perfectly fine with the iPad but not with the iPhone, so i'm geussing something is wrong with my iPhone. How can i get my iPhone replaced or fixed? I've only been in the apple store to check out products but never spoken to any of the customer support. what questions will i get asked? Do i gotta make an appointment or can i just walk into a local apple store and bring in my device and box. what will i need? It's my first time trying to replace or fix my iPhone so i need help. Help a fellow apple user.
When i woke up this morning and i made a picture of the beautiful sunrise, i encountered a black spot on my picture.I scrolled back into my pictures and it appearead since yesterday. Its cleaned the lens and looked very close at it and i found a little spot in the lens i think. i can;t feel it with my finger but its there. Normally i would walk to my local apple reseller and have it checked out, but right now i;m living in mauritius. I bought my iphone in holland. Can i go to the apple reseller here and have them check my iphone? Its an black iphone 5 16gb..

Hi! I recently upgraded to iphone 5 with Orange and had just got myself a 24month contract but after a couple of weeks, the worst happend - I managed to drop my lovely new phone down the toilet! Anyway long story short, I am going to order a new iphone 5 online with Apple and it will be unlocked.What I'd like to know is will there be any problem putting my orange contract sim in an unlocked iphone 5? I don't want to fork out for the phone and then find out my sim won't work. `My contract and sim is for iphone 5 so I'm guessing it won't be a problem, but thought i'd just check anyway. Thanks in advance for any answers!
Hi all, So just got two slightly paranoid questions, but as my iPhone 5 is brand new I just want to be sure. Battery lifeSo I had a 3GS prior to purchasing the 5 and I just feel that the battery life is less than ideal. My battery lasts 1.5 days (with my turning off the phone when I sleep). Is this about right? Low to medium usage, i.e. chatting, surfing a bit, checking emails and social media with WiFi on and GPS off and most notification off and medium brightness and 3G turned on. Is 1.5 days right or should it last longer? I am pretty sure my 3GS lasted longer when I first bought it. Unresponsive buttonsI purchased the phone about a week ago. An iPhone 5 16gb. I haven't dropped it and this far the only way I have charged is to let it drain fully and charge it back up to 100%. It has worked fine this far but today something slightly odd happened. The phone had gone to sleep and I needed to check something but the home button was completely unresponsive. I pressed it a number of times but absolutely nothing happened. I also tried the top button, again nothing happened. Then I tried holding the top button because I thought that I might have turned it off accidentally. Again, nothing. The little "you need to charge your phone" screen didn't even come up. I might add that the phone had 23% juice at this time. Then I tried to connect it to the charger and the moment I plugged in the phone it came back to life. It has worked fine since. My question is, can anyone explain this? Is the phone broken somehow? What could have caused it? As I said, I haven't dropped the phone at all, and I've only had it for about a week so this seems very odd indeed.
My phone keeps crashing then goes to reboot and restarts, I check crash log and it has crashes called ResetCounter. I restored phone and the crashes happen randomily, nothing else is wrong with phone, have had about a year.
i have many problems with my iphone 4.when i start updating software it says check ur network setting and see is it active....how to active it? and second when i download any application it keeps on waiting and never download

My Facebook application will only show I have a notification if I click into the app. I should be able to see that there is a notification with a red bubble that has a number in the top right hand side of the app on the home page. If not, it defeats the purpose of not having to click into the application to check for updates.
I'm staying in oman . On my iPhone 4S Skype is installed . But not getting to log in. Always shows that check network setting . ? What to do? Also while using 3G network battery backup is not more then 2.5 hr. battery has problem ??
You're not addressing Apple here, just iPhone users, please don't provide your personal data like serial/imei numbers Have you tried this article? http://support.apple.com/kb/ts3424
i want to know what will apple do with the diffective iphone which is known as KBB how can apple treat KBB and can apple check that or not at whrehouse
When i deleted my friends old number, i deleted her contact all together and created a new contact with her new number. Now when i go to create a text when i type in her name it brings up both numbers and i cant seem to permanently delete the old number from that list. But when i check contacts there is only one number there which is her new one i saved.
Just been to the Apple Store in Stratford, London to get my iphone 5 replaced as the sleep wake button stopped responding. I was in and out and i was done. The member of staff who served me seemed very rushed and i didn't have his full attention so when we were going through the process it was a bit more unpleasant than usual. My concern is, when he asked me to erase my phone, i by mistake erased all my settings, rather than erasing all my content and data and due to his rushed manor i didn't get a chance to double check, then my old phone was in a box and under the counter. I didn't realise this had happened till i was on my way home, can anyone tell me that my phones content will be erased? as i dont particulirly want some apple repair guys prank calling all mny contacts, if anyone could reasure me with this, that would be great and put my mind at rest. I did try and erasing it through find my iphone app but of course the sim card needed to be in the phone for it to connect to the internet. Thanks, any help would be very much appreciated! Sam D
I'm on my iPhone 4S and I can't connect to ANY app that uses wifi, including the iTunes store. I keep getting notifications that I need to check my Internet connection (I have it on my phone) and that my phone wasn't sure if itunes.apple.com was really iTunes' web address (oh come on!) It's storming here where I am in Tennessee now, and I figured that might be part of the problem. But is it? I've reset the network settings, and it still says it. What could the problem be? I've even tried turning off the wifi and using 4G and nothing happened.
Hi I wanna ask how to check any used iPhone from apple site by the IMEI ? And how to know that phone is clean?
I'm only recieving about 10% of the normal notifications from my favorite apps... Skype: never unless I'm using the phoneWhatsapp: only when the phone is idle for long periods of timeTwitter's notifications haven't worked until I set foot in Italy this past weekend. The moment I crossed the border, it all started working. Nothing has changed other than I am studying in Europe instead of the USA. Are there any things I can check in iOS before hunting down the developers of the apps? iOS 6.1.3 on an iPhone 4S
Is there any way to check my iphone 4 for keylogger or spyware (basically anything of that nature)?
