I purchased my Iphone 4 while living in Hong Kong. I am now back in the UK and the phone has deveoped a problem where the mic cuts out during calls and the person I'm on the phone to can't hear me. I took the phone to the apple shop here and the girl told me that she would have given me a replacement but she can't because the phone is slightly different than the UK (european) model of the Iphone 4. She then told me to call apple care and explain to them over the phone. I called apple care and an american woman said she can't give me support unless I pay £25 but will email me instructions on reseting the phone, I told her reseting won't make a difference as the mic problem is a common one with Iphone 4's and I've read it's a hardware problem. So anyways I reset my phone and nothing changed. I'm stuck in limbo right now and dunno what to do, does anyone have any suggestions? I think I'll get a galaxy when my contract is up this year.
I have a truecaller app but it don't show names for unsaved no. When they calls as I was used in samsung for example and when I asked the apps co. They told me that apple don't allow them to do..so please could u guys manage this
Hello,I am newbie, so sorry if I am asking stupid question, I do have iphone 4 and I am very satisfied with it. Just I wish it had a better camera. Is there any way that I can take off iphones camera and swap it with a camera from samsung galaxy? what about swaping with iphone 5's camera?thanks in advance
Can anyone help, how to import the contacts to I phone from samsung kies backup file
I try to avoid updates on my iPhone because it's either hit or miss and after the latest update that was released a couple days ago, my worst fear happened. It updated then I left it alone to update. After over an hour I come back and the "connect to iTunes" image appeared and nothing worked. Once iTunes was restarted it said I needed to restore my phone to factory settings. This is ridiculous and very frustrating. I'm not going to lie, several of my friends have samsung galaxy S3's or Notes and they seem way more verstitle and reliable then my iphone. Any suggestions?
I have a VZW iPhone 5 activated as my main phone, I also have a VZW samsung galaxy Nexus that I use a sim adapter and swap the sim to. When I swap the sim from the iPhone 5 to the galaxy Nexus for a day or so then back to the iPhone 5, I cant pickup LTE signal, it just stay at 3G. Although if I put the sim back in the galaxy Nexus it still picks up LTE. The only way i can get the LTE back on my iPhone 5 is by going into VZW and getting a new sim card activated, in return kills my old sim card. Any ideas or help?? Thanks
Hy, I was trying to syncro the new samsung PC with my iphone 5. Now, phone does not syncro and music in the phone does not play. Any tip?
the man on the phone told me to jailbreak my iphone so i could get iOS 5 back.. but by jailbreaking a phone you lose the warranty anyway... considering this is apple's fault (iOS 6 has ruined my 4s capability to connect to wifi) ( and my girlfriend has as 4s on iOS 5 and that still connects fine ) i think they should be doing more i am a long time apple customer but i think this has made me want to swap back to being a windows user and maybe getting the samsung or HTC
Can I schedule calls and block unwanted numbers like what my friend can do on his samsung s3 is there a app with out jailbreaking my iPhone , thanks
I just purchased the iPhone 5 coming from a samsung galaxy S3. Where I work, I do not receive cell phone service so I rely heavily on the WiFi to receive emails and iMessages. I've noticed that if the phone sits for a few minutes, the wireless will shut itself off and as soon as I press the home or power button, the wireless kicks in and I get a flood of iMessages and an e-mail chime. On the samsung, there was an option to keep the wireless on all the time and my question is: Is there a way to keep the phone connected to a WiFi connection all the time so I don't get a delay in messages and emails? I know battery life will suffer and that isn't an issue to me. I just need it to stay connected so I'm not replying to messages 2 hours later when I pick up the phone. Thanks,
I got my very first iPhone in November 2012 I was totally converted, until I starte having issues with my iPhone 4S... I made an appointment with the Genius Bar in meadowhall sheffield who after 3 appointments and the phone still being broken did indeed replace the handset. The new handset I now have has started coming apart... Its never been dropped or damaged but by the way it's going in about a months time the phone is going to be in about 4 pieces. I went to the Genius Bar who told me it would cost me £139 to replace! But hang on this is not my fault and I have like 300 days left of my warranty!!I then called apple support who told me the guy at the Genius Bar had logged the visit as accidental damage and that I had told him I dropped the phone!! The lady on the phone made me another appointment at the Genius Bar and sent with with a case ID and said they would replace the handset as because of the phone coming apart I was now experiencing signal issues, dropped calls and a lot of hardware issues... Only to get there and then tell me there's nothing they will do unless I pay £139!!!I'm absolutely disgusted!!! This is not my fault.. It's a faulty handset!!! But yet I'm supposed to be £139 out of pocket!!! Makes me wanna actually walk into store put the phone on the side and tell them where to shove the phone and go buy a samsung! It's ridiculous!!!I really don't know where to go from here!Someone please help me :(
I currently have a several year old samsung Flyte phone. I am included with my wife's account under the AT&T family plan. My "line" has no data plan linked to it - her iPhone 4S and her sister's iPhone 3 do. The contract with AT&T for my phone/line expired several months ago. I'm thinking about upgrading to an iPhone 4, but I don't want to give up my existing phone number. And, I understand that the iPhone uses a micro SIM card - different that other manufacturer's phones. I'm pretty sure that I'll need to add a data plan to my "line" - not a big deal. Ideally, we want to add another line to the wife's plan (without data) and give the samsung phone to her mom, who lives with us. But, I do not want to loose my phone number. We want my new iPhone to have my existing phone number and the samsung for her mom to have a new number. Is this possible?
I have a 2013 Buick Enclave with Pandora and Stitcher on the nav screen. With my samsung S3, Pandora automatically lit up and worked. with new iphone5, I was told I need to connect USB port to car and phone and start Pandora. That worked and the icon on screen lit up. but as soon as I removed the USB cord, Pandora and Stitcher greyed out and stopped working. I know it's supposed to work on the car's nav screen once I hardwire it (at least that's what I was told), but as soon as I disconnect, they stop working through the car. How can I install Pandora and Stitcher on my car WITHOUT having the usb cord attached? the idea is to be able to use the car's touch screen to control Pandora, but with the phone plugged into the USB port, I can only use the phone to control Pandora, which of course is dangerous when driving! And it worked correctly with the samsung, so I have to believe it can work with the iphone 5! Right? Thanks.
I purchased a new samsung laptop with windows 8. I have an iphone 5 and Im trying to sync the two. I deleted itunes from my old computer b/c my assistant was taking it over. When I check anything in itunes it give me a message that itunes will over ride my iphone with what is on the computer, which is nothing. I cannot figure out how to do this without deleting everything. Please help. Thanks.
Since the ios6.0 update, deleted contacts can't be deleted from the new message case. It is amazing that more people are not aware of the problem and are speaking out about it. As a professor, I have new students whose contacts I input into my iPhone each semester after sending a text mail the contact cannot be deleted from the "new message" cashe. It can be deleted from contacts but remains in the cashe. The only way to delete the cashe is a full restore. Resetting does not even work. Restoring is a horrible way to delete contacts permanently. I have contacted Apple repeatedly. They are aware of the problem but do not seem to be concerned. With each update, I expect the bug to be fixed. I hope to get the attention of samsung with this. I know they could create another embarrassing ad campaign and Apple will resolve the issue in seconds. Apple is not the great company it used to be.

Does anybody have trouble pairing your iPhone or iPod or iPad with a Bluetooth speaker system?
it's that correct ??? " The Apple A5 is a System-on-a-chip package on package designed by Apple and manufactured by samsung. It combines an ARM Cortex-A9 with a PowerVR graphics processor. The chip is launched on the market with the release of the iPad 2 tablet. The Apple A5 was also inserted into the iPhone 4S and the iPod Touch 5th generation and then the iPad Mini. The successor to the Apple A5 is A5X a simple "evolution" integrated into third-generation iPad. This chip has a CPU "double heart" and a graphical "quad-heart." ????
Hello Folks, Created this thread so that people know that not every iPhone 5 has a bad battery issue. I got the iPhone 5 32 GB Unlocked version last week and i was going through all the forums checking the battery issues people had since updating their iOS version. I saw that a lot of people have issues with their battery which put me on backfoot for upgrading the OS. Then too i took the leap of faith with the thought that it is "Apple!!" a premium brand.. And i am glad i did. Now i know a lot of people had issues with the ios 6.1.3 Upgrade. But for me it was smooth. When i got the phone i was by default on 6.0.2 and battery life was ok. It was les than ATT galaxy S3 i had before as in they battery used to die in 14-16 hours which was not bad i would say. Since i upgraded, it was on 100% in the night at 12:30 AM. I woke up, and it was still 100%. So stand by battery is super awesome after the upgrade. As for the usage now, it is 4:30 PM here in NY and the battery is about 55%. The stats that i see is 17 hours stand by time and 6 hours usage. So i beleive my battery life is improved. Also my LTE is off as we dont have it in Long Island. In the night I was on Wifi, I am in office now and wifi is disabled, listened to an hour of music on spotify, notifications are off for all the useless apps, mail frequency is 1 hour, use whatsapp a lot. Thats it. So atleast for me, the upgrade was a beneifit. And the battery life has difinitely improved. PS: I have not created the thread to poke people with battery issues, just an FYI to people that not everyone is having battery issues. Peace....
crashing not resonding etc apple offerd to replace the phone but im scared the same thing is gonna happen. im this close to going and buying a new galaxy. is this happening to anyone else
Painful farewell AppleUnfortunately, the Apple no longer offers products awesome and unfortunately no longer apple interested in customers and move Apple to Warranty place Guaranty this will make us we drive to samsung and this is sad because iphne 5 can not be compared with samsung phones do not want new innovation we want a product we love farewell Apple will Buy galaxy s4
Being the young tech savvy kid I jumped straight in for the iPhone 5 and frankly was quite excited and amazed but later annoyed my charger and cable were perfectly fine when taking out of box but a couple of weeks later I had problems my iPhone would charge for about 2-3% but then stop and wouldn't start for about 2 mins, I would take it out and then putting it back in but the it just doesn't charge I have the latest software iOS 6.1.3 and thought that would fix it( thinking it was software glitch like many other glitches I've had) but it didn't quite frankly I am definitely thinking of a samsung s4 as they promise more for less and dont have same problem also I am a dedicated customer and have a iMac desktop, a mackbook pro retina and a iPad mini and the Genius Bar me too wait for 2 weeks until they can get to me and that is public holiday so in theory it's about 2 1/2 weeks and I probably need a new cable but am not keen on getting new lightning cable for $30 thank you and hope u can give me answers to my problem soon thnx
october 1st i bought a iphone 5 on vodafone contract. The phone was extremley fun and easy to use and was completley new i was happy i switched from my galaxy ace. Then a couple of weeks back i lost my iphone so i phoned vodafone and got it blocked along with the sim. Then i found it and i asked vodafone to unblock and send me a new sim (because while taking it out i accidently damaged it) so they unblocked it and sent a new sim i had this sim activated and put in my iphone i waited 24 hours for it to be activated after 24 hours i had no bars i couldnt call or text but i could surf the web without wifi so i phoned them again and they sent another sim i inserted and waited 24 hours same problem. I know it is a hardware issue does my warranty cover this ??? Does anyone else have this problem
I love apple but I'm looking @ galaxy note it dose so much more....
For some reason in my bedroom my iPhone won't connect to my home WiFi network. My iPod 2g connects to it fine but not my iPhone 4s. As soon as I go outside of my room, my wifi connects and it works fine. I've tried restoring, forgetting network settings, and basically anything else you can think of. It's not a router problem because my iPod 2g and even my galaxy S3 connect to wifi in here, just not my iPhone 4s.
Hi I have an Iphone 4s running hot, I have followed the process's on here (backup and restore) and starting a fresh on the phone and still have the same issue. I have taken it to a local mobile phone dealer who has changed my battery and it still has the same issue, my battery is running hot like an application is constantly running. I am now booked into the Apple store next week Monday. I wanted to know, will this invalidate my warranty if I tell them I have changed the battery as I assumed it was a battery issue. It was changed by an approved phone dealership who is an accredited company for Nokia and samsung and also do Iphone repairs/replacement. I don't want to walk in there and them assuming the battery has been changed so they wont touch the phone now and say it is my fault. Thanks
I bought my iPhone 5 32Gb from the Apple Store in Hong Kong and had it shipped to the Philippines where I currently reside. I've read some issues regarding the iPhone 5 not being able to connect to the internet and having a very weak wifi range. I've dealt with the weak wifi range already but my problem now is: I accidentally pressed "Forget Network" (home wifi) at home and now I can't seem to connect again. My MacBook Pro, iPad and samsung S3 have absolutely no problem with connecting to the internet and it's just my iPhone 5 with the issues. I've tried Resetting everything but still cannot connect to my Wifi. It just keeps on saying "Incorrect Password" though I'm 100% sure that it is since all my other devices are working perfectly. Please help me. Thank you in advance guys!
After your latest update my battery drains faster that flash going around the world 8k times. I refuse to change my settings because this expensive telephone is supposed to be the best telephone in the market. I didn't buy an expensive device to keep its functionality at its 50% by disabling everything where the purpose of a smartphone is to be useful and smart. I bought this phone expecting to have a good experience and exploit every aspect of this to its fullest. On the other hand, samsung seems to treat their costumers as deserved ( friends are really happy with their galaxy). Better get a solution because I am not only one frustrated and wanting to go over your competition. Thanks,A frustrated costumer
SInce I upgraded to 6.1.2 (I had no issues previously, all was perfect in my iphone 5 world since I got it!!) my battery is draining like a sieve, it's down 2% in seconds and no apps opened, as well 2 of my friends, one with an iPhone 5 on SPrint like me and one with an iPhone 4s on AT&T cannot send me pictures. I get the texts but not the pics. My friend with a galaxy SII on Sprint can send me pictures fine. What is going on? Anyone else seeing these issues? My iPhone 4S friend can send pictures to my iphone 5 SPrint friend just fine too. I can send pics to them and they receive them fine. I tried turning off/on and no change. Checked settings and everything is as it was before? I have LTE off since we do not have it in the Phoenix metro areas. (This was causing messaging delivery issues initially until I learned it should be off where you do not have it). Can I downgrade back to where I was in my old perfect world?
How do I know? Because I did not upgrade to 6.1.1, but rather waited for 6.1.2 so I could improve cell reception without battery drain. No such luck. My battery was great before without 6.1.1, and now with 6.1.2? 3hrs after charge to 100% I am at 24%. Previously I could go all day before getting to this point. APPLE YOU LIED! The update said fixes battery drain--not creates it! samsung here I come!
I recently updated to 6.0 on my iphone 4g. Since having updated my 4g cannot find any Wi-Fi signals. My wife's 4s is having no problem with our network. My 4g will not pick up known networks when typed in. I have Reset Network Settings and I have Reset All Settings. Nothing has solved the problem. I am going to go purchase a samsung galaxy III if there is no solution by the time I head to AT&T tomorrow at lunch. I am disgusted by Apple updates. My wife previously had the iphone 4g and after an update it stopped turning on. AT&T had to upgrade her to resolve the problem. This is the second time we have had issues that render our iphones obsolete-- no more, enough is enough.
i phone 5 which i bought nd experienced heat up while charging....heavy game...music thorogh speaker....heavy app...Next problem, pink lines sometimes when uses camera..Replaced twice nd same problom is there...Anybody if plz have solution...I donn think Iphone 5 benifited me in comparision to galaxy S3...i invested in this piece...when will Apple solve it ...no idea...i question apple..plz send ay update to sort bugs...And any friend if have thier hacky solutions.
Wanted to know if I purchase an iphone 5 can I use the sim card from my galaxy S3 Verizon phone.
I am trying to connect a iPhone 3 with an iPhone 4 using bluetooth so I can use the IP3 as a personal hotspot using a New Zealand prepaid Skinny sim (the IP4 has an Australian sim). I have paired the IP3 with my MacBook Pro and a samsung galaxy using bluetooth and it works well as a hotspot. However the two iPhones can't discover each other ... is there a workaraound, eg an app that can enhance the very basic functionality provided by Apple? The phones are running iOS 6.0 and iOS6.1 respectively.
Iphone 5 screen is repeatedly unresponsive at the edges. This has ruined my enjoyment of this device. I cannot play my games properly at all. The first iPhone 5 I obtained through contract I went straight to Apple store complained and had it replaced only to discover exactly the same problem manifest in the device. If you try to slide the screen with icons below the level of the last row of icons it doesnt respond. This has contributed to the Iphone share price demise. Together with MAPS its simply unnaceptable that a company with billions of Dollars in cash could not implement proper maps OR mis the production checking for the less respnsibve screen. People have come to reply on these devices it is poor shoddy work to implement this slackness in a product that led the world so wonderfully in previous versions, now look.. samsung have caught up and are now the biggest phone maker in the world. That is not something Steve Jobs would have acepted.
Ive personally come to the conclusion that the constant wifi problems (slow speed, dropping out, constantly having to enter wifi pasword) with the iphone 5 are a hardware fault and not simply a problem that can be fixed with a update. Ive had two iphone 5s which have both shown these symptoms, tried multiple routers (changed settings on these), changed the DNS, updated to the newest version of ios which was supposed to address these issues, tried on my friends routers with no avail. Personally I've had enough and just wanted too see if this is a major issue affecting others and if this has changed their opinion on the iphone, personally this will be my last because of this issue and will order the new samsung S4 if/when released. Iphone 5 anyone??
i have bought several songs and even cd's in the itunes store, but how can i use any of those songs as a ringtone?do i have to buy the songs again but then as ringtone?or how can i use my own music as a ringtone?never had this problem with other phone from samsung or htc
Apple is rubbish! my iphone speakers arent working! ive tried everything but nothing works! Apparently it has moist in it, but its never been near a pool or shower! I think apple is just ripping people off. Im better off getting a htc! or samsung!
Hello, We and lot of people facing problem with Battery life and mobile charger problem Apple company should solve this prpblem as soon as possible.

If its not solved i am we all will go with samsung which gives better life regards,C.Mahantesh
So I finally took the jump and switch from android (my old samsung Infuse) to a beautiful and amazing iPhone 5 - my experience thus far as been amazing and I can honestly say Apple has made a believer out of me - HOWEVER, all this Li-Ion battery guff has got me very paranoid. I must admit, like most android users, I was laxidasical with charging my android because I knew if the battery ever went belly-up, I could just swing over to my local AT&T store and pick up a new battery for $25, no problem. Now with the iPhone, thats a different story entirely. I know people have been arguing over this question since the era of Sodom and Gomorrah, but has any consensus been reached? - Is it okay to charge the iPhone 5, whenever I want to? - If it hits 100% should I unplug it, or is it safe to leave it there? - If I am spending a day at home (like a full 12 hour day) should I leave it plugged up? And for all those who answer "Unplug it after it hits 100%" won't that just waste the charge cycles? Can't you just keep it at 100%and only use a charge cycle when you need it? (I.E. go out) Sorry to be a stickler about this, but I am by no means a wealthy man and I wish to keep my shinies intact! - Thank you
Apple told me to remove the camera after it jiggled, the little no entry sign did not appear therefor I could not remove my camera app. The camera does not work to the rear, sometimes the front facing camera will but sporadically, can i replace this phone for a samsung galaxy......never use apple again their crud
I recently got a new iphone 5 and for some reason I am having trouble connecting to other bluetooth devices. My iphone keeps telling me "this device is incompatible", while the other device perfectly connected to my iphone. This happened when I tried to connect my samsung solstice (older phone of 2 yrs) to transfer my pictures and even when I tried to connect a samsung rugby 3 (a phone that just came out 2 wks ago). Heck, when I tried to connect to another iphone 5, both iphones couldn't find each other. I have used bluetooth in the past, but I was surprised that my phone is giving me such a hard time. Is there a certain protocol that must be used to ensure proper connectivity? Thanks so much.
I don't get it. Does apple want to destroy itself?By making Whatsapp unavailable for iPhone 3G everyone with an iPhone 3G will buy a new samsung I now need to get my new samsung because all apple's are way to expensive and the benefit of an iphone is not that big anymore...Please apple make something happen that changes this.
Since updating to ios 6.01 my iPhone 4 Internet & wifi has become very slow & sluggish. Why would this be???It is very frustrating & I am thinking of changing to samsung on my upgrade .
I have the iphone5 and can not use the talk to text feature in my Brand NEW 2013 Acura RDX..... Is there a fix for this or should I consider getting the galaxy S III?
I ported my number 3 months ago to GiffGaff and ever since then when I put my sim into any iphone I can't recieve any phone calls. When I put the same sim into an samsung galaxy S3 it works perfectly fine. I have gone back to GiffGaff and they have done everything they can, I don't think there is a problem with them, I think the problem lies with apple. When I go into Messages tab on my iPhone 5 it says "waiting for activation...." Can someone please help me resolve the problem
Ok restarted phone and wifi, forgot network the put in password again and still nothing beginning to wish I went to samsung. Instead of paying £299 for a phone that's not working. Anyone else having problems or is it something I am doing
I just switched from a samsung Android -- can I transfer my apps somehow?
Ok, so I just got off the chat session with US support regarding the ios 6.0.2 update that seemingly fixes the wifi issues. But, there is aparently no plan to release the patch on any other device so when my dodgy wifi connectivity on my 4s totally dropped out today and now no longer allows me to enable wifi, It has to go back to the shop. Yeah, replace the hardware for a software problem... No guarentees that the problem won't happen again... maybe it's time to ditch the 4s for a samsung....
OK; purchased an iPhone 5 64GB at end of October and battery was fine. Upgraded to IOS 6.0.1 a week later and battery life is now terrible, lasting barely half a day with minimal usage. Know all about switching items off, apps, etc. Upgraded to IOS 6.0.1 on my iPad 2 at the same time, and exactly same issue on overheating and poor battery life has occurred.You don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure out what the cause is.What is Apple doing about it?If IOS 6.1 does not fix it then the only thing I can do is change to samsung tablet and phone - a silent protest but will hurt Apple financially.I can't believe they're not monitoring these discussions and working in a solution. I have 10 people who have all purchased samsung phones on the basis of my feedback on the IPhone 5 problem.Come on Apple - you're annoying long-time customers!
