when i plug my iphone into the computer, nothing comes up. it doesnt even shoe on iTunes. This is really upsetting me to the point of crying. please help me..
Immediately upon "upgrading" the iOS, my phone's battery life was reduced by more than half. I restored as new and it didn't fix it. Apple then replaced it with a new phone that unfortunately is also running 6.1.4 and it's the same battery situation, possibly even worse than the last one. Seriously, if this persists, I'm going Droid when my contract is up. What good is any phone if you can't use it for more than a couple hours without having to plug in. Weak, Apple. Really, really weak. No wonder your stock is tanking. You're releasing garbage.
I have the iphone 4s with 16 gb i keep running out of memory and think i need one woth more memory but do i have to buy another phone?
I am able to power down my iPhone 5, by sliding the red slider. But then about 30 seconds later, it powers back up by itself. I've already done the Sleep/Snooze button and the Home button together for 10 seconds, but to no avail. Any other suggestions?
Well today i was running track and my iphone was in my bag but the rain wasnt really heavy but all my stuff still got wet and everything still works butthe sound is a little weird not much but when i play songs it dosent sound right. Please someone help
I have my father-in-law's iPhone (an iPhone 4 running iOS 6.1.3), and my personal iPhone (an iPhone 5 running iOS 6.0) connected to the same iCloud account. Is there any way to separate the two so that apps I purchase on my personal iPhone don't download to his?
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.

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.

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
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
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?
I recently upgraded from 4s to 5. I'm experiencing issues with the bluetooth transmission/receive range. When I'm running with the iphone on my arm my wireless headset quite often drops the connection. Same problem when I'm using bluetooth with My car. I can't have the phone in My pocket while driving, I must put it between My seats, otherwhise the connection drops. Had no problem like this with My 4 or 4s, so I convinced it's something with iPhone 5. Anyone else? Is it a hardware or software issue?
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, Can someone help in giving the proper steps to erase "others" in capacity for my iPhone 5? I have tried everything, from erasing text message, photos, music, videos, among other, but "others" remains. Certainly need help!
Sir, I have a apple i phone 4s, When I purchase Whatsapp from itunes using my master card it shown payment declined, please provide the proper support..
So I have this iPhone but when I play graphical games like Iron Man 3 the official games I can barely play it because it lags a lot.i checked on my other iPhone 4 and it was running smooth as butter it is the same iPhone like mine but I noticed that on this iPhone the graphics are much higher. I could see reflections and textures that were higher than the other phone . Anyone have ideas on what's going on with my phone?
I have iPhone 4 which is running iOS6. Starting probably yesterday, when the battery level not even comes down to zero, phone switches off. Yesterday it went off when the battery level was at 15% and today it went off when it was at 18%.Can someone please tell me what the reason for this and how I can fix this? Much appreciate your feedback. Thank you,Roshan.
Dear Friends out there, I got a 3gs machine with ios 4.0.1 running till today. Getting frustrated with can't install any new apps, I would like to upgrade my machine to the lastest version of ios which 3gs can support. Appreciate if you guys can give some advise here. ( I got no intension to change phoneat the moment). Thanks for your help.Winston
Following the most recent ios version update, my iPhone 5 completely crapped out and had that little usb symbol on the screen. I called Apple...they walked me through transferring all my almost 3000 photos/videos to my computer (obviously not able to do through iTunes/iCloud when my phone wasn't functioning). I asked if everything else (about 250 apps...no music) would be in the most recent cloud backup which was only a couple hours before the phone crapped out. They said yes. I did the restore and only about 30 of my 250ish apps restored! I never saw all my apps in my iTunes for some reason and all the apps that I can see in my iTunes have been restored. I wasn't at capacity for iCloud storage either because it happened a couple months ago and I bought more storage space. I've only been an iPhone user since Dec 2012 so PLEASE HELP if you can and let me know if there is anymore inof you need from me to help me troubleshoot. PS=I use a good 30-40 of those apps while I'm running experiential marketing campaigns in the field...one of which is a HUGE campaign I'm managing starting tomorrow. I'm toally FREAKING out right now with my apps not all restored even though the restore is complete. PLEASE HELP -super grateful in advance Julia
Hello everyone. I have an IPhone 4 16gb with iOS 6.1.3, so yesterday i was using it normally, put it back in my pocket with 36% battery. After 1 hour or so i pick it up again and I had a nasty surprise the phone was very hot and battery drained down to 15%, i didn't have 3G, wifi, bluetooth, locations or other stuff or apps running, the phone was in standby. I get home and try to do a restore and i got another surprise, while it was connected to the PC instead of recharging it the battery went down and the phone shut off. Managed to restore it eventually, it stopped heating in standby but whenever i am at the menu doing nothing again with no apps or other stuff turned on it starts to get hot in the upper right part, people say it's the CPU..i don't know what to think anymore, last time it did this a restore solved it but not this time..any ideas?
i have an iphone 3gs 4gb inbuilt memory running ios 4.1 which ios can be upgraded on it
Hi, I have an iPhone 4S with wifi button grayed out similar to the case here http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1559andhttps://discussions.apple.com/thread/4638071?start=0&tstart=0 I already performed a network reset, reset to factory setting and updated eveything via itunes. I know that its most likely a hardward issue as stated in the forum. Now here is the problem. I bought the iphone from a local (philippines) online reseller http://lazada.com.ph. Lazada would only give the the apple 1-800-1441-0234 number and will not accept any repairs and service. I would never purchase anything from lazada specially electronics because of how they handled my case. Absolutely no support and repair /service channels for iphones bought from them. As per lazadas advice, I called the 1800 number and was again adviced to call the local carriers. I was adviced by the apple chat support to contact my local carriers. Local carriers like smart and globe would only accept repairs and service for iphones bought from them. I visited several local apple reseller stores and they decline to render service because the unit was not bought from them. I cant seem to get technical support and have the iphone checked by an authorized service center. What and where is the proper channel for me to get support and have the unit repaired or replaced? Thank you in advance.
Hi guys , i have an Iphone 4s its about 3 months old and im having battery issues :fp: iv tried nearly every possible thing out there to solve this but it doesnt seem to work , i have tried full charge and full drain.

Thanks guys (Y)
I have an iPhone 4S running on iOS 6.1.3 and runs fine, but the wifi lags and skips.I don't know why, I know that either updating or some 4S/4 iPhones have this issue. This only happens when I use it in an Application, not in general. This is my 2nd 4S I went from S3 to 4S again. My first iPhone was fine. I wish I had it back...
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 upgraded from the 4 to the 5 about a 2 months ago, in the beginning I had no problem with the battery life, then about 3 days ago i would start the morning with 100% then drive to work and about an hour later my battery was completely drained. I have spoke with the people at the 1800myiphone 3-4 times they ran a battery test, I updated the latest software, have backed up and retstored. Still having the problem. we checking everything that was running and did all the normal checks and balances. Primarily is draining when I am at work and not even on the phone. I have nothing pushing and never have. strange that it just started in the last 3 days. they agreed to replace it but either have to due with out my phone for 5-10 or more days or have a $695 hold put on my credit card to get a new one expressed delivered to me. NOT HAPPY and VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!!
I had a local repair store diagnose the sudden death of my iPhone 4 to continuous charging. As per the details I received, it is not advisable to leave the phone connected to the power supply longer than required to charge the battery 100%. The repair workshop has got the phone up and running after replacing an IC, as well as correcting a loose battery connector. Wonder if anyone else encountered the above. Best,wirefree
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.
Recently whenever I try updating my apps a message pops up saying "sign in required, please sign in to view billing information" so I sign in and it takes me to the payment options page, there I have all my correct data inserted which I checked about 5 times, but it says "access denied, please Chios another payment method". Problem is I don't have mother payment method and I don't see why it can't accepts this one.Note: all my apps are free and I am running ios 6.1.3
Hello everyone, I have an iPhone 4 running on iOS 4.2.1 which I need to upgrade. With all the new iOS versions released and the reviews I've been reading, I'm kinda lost as to which verion will work best with my phone. Any help??
Went to apple store last week with a cracked screen on my 4S. It was out-of-warranty so they provided me with a refurb unit. Did a restore on the refurbed unit from icloud (running ios 6.1.3) and ever since then I've been having problems. The phone feels like it is overheating, the 3G only works intermittently, apps keep crashing and freezing, and the phone turns itself off at random intervals. I read online about the potential issues with exchange calendars, so I've turned off any calendars on my phone. Other than that, does anyone know how I can fix this issue? Is it hardware related, or is there something else I can do to improve performance? Thanks in advanceDan
out of the blue, the speakerphone is not working, ringing not working, the device only vibrates and also vibrates randomly for no reason. people can hear me but no sound out on any application. this is an iphone5 running ios 6.1.3
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.
Hi, I'm interested in purchasing the factory unlocked IPhone 5 the A1429 CDMA model in US online apple store, is it possible? if so, how it can be done as when i try to put the order, there is no model choosing option. ?
Hi guys. Today when I played music through spotify to my car audio system (through minijack), my iPhone 5 turned itself off in the same way it does when the battery is empty. At this point, the battery was at 40%. When I tried turning it on immediately after, the 'connect to power outlet' symbol showed up. I also remember I used the snapchat app at that point. Now a couple of hours later, I could turn it on normally and I have 40% power left. At the moment I'm running iOS 6.1.3 and I've never experienced this before. Has anyone else had this problem? Could it be related to the amount of power drawn through the headphone jack? Thanks!
Hi there, Have a problem with my iPhone 5. When I try and turn on Bluetooth it gets stuck on the turning wheel icon and never turns on. I have tried turning it on and off, a proper reboot and updating the iOS without any success in getting it work properly again. Anyone got any advice? Thanks, Simon
Once yesteray and again just a few minutes ago the banner on my iPhone 5's display said No SIM; cycle power and the message goes away. Anyone know what's going on with the phone? The phone is running iOS 6.1.3.
My iPhone 5 which is running iOS 6.1.3 for the past few weeks has bee charging off and on. I have two cords one that came with my phone and one I ordered off amazon, neither of the two cords is functioning proerly which is leading me to believe it may be a phone issue rather than cord. I wil plus it in and often get a "charging is not supported with this device" message ragardless if I use he provided apple brick, my laptop, or car port. It will mainly then switch off and on between charging and then just being plugged in not charging!
Hi guys, I've used apple for 5 years now. Started with an Iphone 3GS and since then I could not use any other brand as a Cel Phone, and I tried, believe me I tried. I used an Iphone 4 for 3 years without having any problem, without having to even call Apple. Then, by the end of the last year I went to London for a trip. I bought an Iphone 5 and came back to my home country, that is Brazil...Used it for 4 months or so and it started having problems with the wake and sleep button, then I thought, "ok, apple is a worldwide company, they are reliable, that's the main reason for me to have bought it for so long and the phone still in warranty, they will trade it for me" so I called apple...For the first time in 5 years...And I did not get answered properly. Apple states that since I bought the Iphone in london, they warranty can only be used for trading the phone in london...I have no intentions of going to london this year, what meand I will lose my warranty and the money I spent with my Iphone. To clarify, I did go to Washington for a better support, but they stated the same...I called apple and they stated that the Iphone is broken and needs to be traded but it can only be done in london. An analyst called James Downs told me to call apple regent street that's the one where I bought the Iphone and when I called there for getting my money back because they are not providing the proper support for my iphone they state that I need to take the Iphone to the store... End of the story, I have a broken Iphone, I am frustrated with apple, because they are acting as they do not care for the costumer at all. In my point of view, they should escalate the problem, call the brazilian store and trade my phone or ship me a brand new one. I took the iphone to different stores in different countries that I have access and so far nothing. Apple does not care, my iphone is 4 months old and is already broken...If nothing is done I'll be very frustrated, I'll be at least ****** because it seems I'll not have my money back because the store states they will not do that even though an apple consultant says it and I have no way of taking the phone to the store. Please, can anybody from apple help me with that? I really want my phone or my money...If you can just ship me a new one I'll be ok with that..But you should do something, you are apple, not some other ****** company around the world, will you not honor your brand?
The other day my iPhone 5 said that storage was running out. I checked and it says that i have used up most of my gigs. I was comparing all the data I had on my phone with my roommates iPhone 4 and it didn't seem to add up. On my iPhone 5, I have 69 songs, 32 videos, nearly 800 photos, and 14 applications. My roommate had over 300 songs, 90 videos, 2000 photos and 14 applications. Both of the phones are 16 GB. Does the iPhone 5 take larger photos or something? If it does, can i reduce the photo size?
So I've been reading a little bit about some issues with people's iPhone 5's not properly connecting to LTE on Verizon, but I was wondering if the same issues were with Sprint users as well. I called Sprint the other day (local store and Sprint National Hotline (*2)). Both of these sources said that they hadn't shown any problems with the LTE on any of the towers in my area, and this is in a very strong LTE coverage area. Is it hardware within the phone or an issue with the network? I've tried the cellular network update multiple times.... Thanks!
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?
I currently have an iphone 4S running IOS 6.1.3 software and to my annoyance I keep having the Apple ID login box appearing on my phone asking for my password. Even though I put in my password it will re-appear shortly after asking for my password again. I am now being too loose my patience!! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Paul

hi guys... i have an iphone 4 running ios 5.01 i believe.. about 3 weeks ago, suddenly it just died for no reason. i didn't drop it or anything.. i pressed and hold the home and spring board buttons, but nothing happened. the phone would only turn on if it is being charged. even then, it is not functioning at all.. it says no service on the top left, the wifi is greyed out.. most of the apps wont work. when i selected any of the apps, they flashed briefly then go back to main menu. and the phone dies again as soon as i unplugged the it from the charger. the battery says a 100% while being plugged. there is an alarm icon on top of the main menu.. last night, all of a sudden, the phone just started to function again while being docked to the charger... after being unplugged for about a week or so. and everything just works... but this morning after i have been using it for a few hours since last night, it died again... so it looks like there is a loose connection inside the phone or there is a chipset or something thats beginning to fail inside phone.. just wondering if anyone has experience this kind of issue with their iphone 4.. its very irritating.. i never drop the phone, never got in the water.
Hi, I use my iPhone 5 for running and have bluetooth headphones and a bluetooth heartrate monitor connected. If I have the phone on my arm then all is fine but I would prefer to put it in the pocket on the back of my shorts/trousers but as soon as I do both devices go in out out of contact with the iphone all the time.What can I do to resolve this issue? Many thanks Kris
to cut a long story short. I was interested in an i-phone... got the details..checked them all.. on the phone and with the provider, VODAPHONE... told unlocked, not stolen etc etc. proceeded to buy the phone...new sim topped up £10 only to find it wouldn't work... Went into vodaphone store..been running around following thier advice..(they said I need a friend who is a customer on vodaphone to get passed the unlocking with a vodaphone code.. and they would do it for free given the circumstances...so i run errands go back and forth doing as they asked...got nowhere) SO IT IS NOW A MONTH LATER..and after complaining and complaining to thier email site and repeatedly asking for help in store..I am stumped as what to do and just have a glorified ipod. I WILL NOT BE FORCED TO REMAIN ON THE VODAPHONE NETWORK given the situation they have put me in and thier unwillingness to help so i refuse to use the phone with vodaphone... BUT WHAT can i do PLEASEEEEEEE? all they keep on suggesting is that I get the original owners details but he is not answering anything...and the phone is not registered as stolen etc so what is the problem!? As you can imagine I am really peeved by the whole thing as I actually carried out all the necessary checks, and whilst the phone was not bought directly from vodaphone, I went to them as the provider, to find otu about unlocking etc as it is always advised to do so..and it was them that gave me the wrong information but they still will not resolve the issue. I have even sent them phone records to confirm when I rung and the name of the invalid who told me the phone was unlocked in the first place. I really would much appreciate any help as they are ignoring my emails now.
