worked for someone? not for me! address appears wifi, but the button remains gray unavailable. I am very dissatisfied with the apple. The google's coming .... android!
Hello! I live in Russia and love Apple very much, have many different products and never had any problems with them. And now I decided to buy a new Iphone 5 and wasn't lucky. I bought it on 3.05.2013 in normal shop, then turned out that wi-fi and bluetooth are not working and the phone eats battery very fast. Shop doesn't want take it back, official services don't want to repair it for free, because it was made for USA. I really don't know what to do:( To buy android? Hope you can help me somehow, the best solution for me is to change it. Serial № of the phone: F17KF2E5DTTR; Part №: MD296LL/a; IMEI: 013428008469809. Thanks!

How can I transfer my contacts from Motorola android to iPhone 5
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?
Is there a way to automatically backup text messages to gmail like the android sms backup+?
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
My iphone 5 has the latest ios 6.1.3 and the battery life is hit and miss. The phone has been factory wiped in itunes and re set up. It sometimes will drop 50 percent on its own in a couple hours. If i do the home button and power reset on the phone the battery will report better. Maybe its a software glitch. I was also disappointed with the fact that i bought a high end home stereo and the iphone doesnt support the new apt-x codec yet their laptops do? Why is this. Its no wonder apple stocks are falling. I have owned every iphone since the 3gs and really have not seen any real improvements other than processors and screens. Poor customizations, lack of ability to personalize the phone and really nothing to keep me with buying another apple. This is unfortunate as the hardware is great but the feature set just hasn't improved in 5 years. In fact i think it has gotten worse. Being a communications tech i used to use wifi apps for testing signal strength on installed accesspoints and those apps got stripped be ause of apples sdk or whatever it was. The slew of apps on the android market for this is staggering. Now i see that motorola, htc and samsungs are all supporting the apt-x codec but no apple. Gps apps are poor and apple maps for our area are black and whit and half are covered in clouds from the satellite view so you cant see the streets anyways. As a business phone the iphone is looking less imoressive day by day. As a music player its also now being outdone. I hope apple takes some of this to heart and really does something impressive to IOS 7 to restore faith in its fans. And maybe some day we will be able to use one of our songs for a ring tone instead of having to pay. My old cdma phone even had this ability.
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?
Okay, so lets see if this works. So I've had my iphone 4 for about a year and a half, I've never really had issues beside the normal glitching and having calls drop here and there. Recently I've had an issue with my iphone connecting with just one individual. Yes, I know it sounds weird but keep reading. I have been able to make calls and recieve phone calls fine, however I cannot with just one single individual. They to also only have the same problem with me, however the only difference is they can hear me but I cant hear them or anything. We're able to text and send picture messages without any issues. Now sometimes when I try to call them, itll ring twice and then the line just goes dead, but thats usually them picking it up. I cannnot hear them at all. I've already done the reset on my phone and I've already contacted apple about this issue and their about as lost as I am because it doesnt make sense that this is only happening with one individual. I've also blew out the speakers and such like people have suggested. I use my head phones that came with my speaker, and ive connected and reconnected them incase my iphone thought they were plugged in. Let me give you a little bit more info. They have an android phone, we have the same carrier which is verizon and they live in another state (not sure if thats helpful). I'm completely lost because this has been going on for about 4 days now and its driving me crazy. This happened a few weeks ago, however it magically fixed its self ( im thinking it was because I had bad service). If anyone has any solutions that might help, please, please let me know.
Hello, I have previously used Shoutcast radio player on android and I liked the fact that it showed the name of the song playing. I downloaded Shoutcast for my Iphone and that feature has been removed it seems. So my question is this: Is there a preferabley free music app that will allow me to search for my genre of music and play that station and list names of songs? My generes of music are Metallica Stations and Soundtrack Stations. That's what I like to listen to mostly. So is there any app out there or am I stuck with Shoutcast until they update the app? Thank you for your assistance
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
I'm new to the iphone; I switched from android. I'm trying to find a data app similar to what I used on my old phone. It would show me the data amount, allow me to put in the data limit and start date. It would also show me the apps that were using the data. The app was Onavo count I think. I tried the iphone version and its not the same. It wants me to set up a VPN?-is that safe? I just want a good data app that is accurate and allows me put in my data limit and start date -bill cycle date. Is there an app free or paid; free hopefully that will do that? Thank you for your help.
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,
regarding not being able to make an in-app purchase: all it says is that i can't make In-app purchases at this time. Any suggestions? I'm new to the apple world. I just switched from an android today.
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 communicate a lot with a friend who has an android phone we just realized that phone has been hacked and most likely has installed spyware in it.; we communicate a lot through various apps like Whatsapp, Viber, and TextPlus... Is my phone data (photos, messages, contacts) compromised by the android phone being hacked? Please advice Thank you,
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." ????
Switching my wife from android to iPhone but want to import here SMS/MMS activity. I found apps on android that can export or import text files but I'm not sure how to import those to iPhone. Is there an App that exists on both platforms that can smoothly do this?
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
Hi, I am a recent convert from android to iphone. I'm looking for a setting or app that would allow me to receive a text message with the word ALERT in it and play a different (LOUD) ringtone. Looking through the app store, I don't see anything like this so I'm wondering if this is locked down as a UI experience bit and not something customizable. Any suggestions? Thanks, Alan
My car bluetooth (car is a BMW X5) has suddenly stopped working, immediately after my iPhone 5 updated its OS to 6.1. It all worked perfectly before the OS upgrade. Have re-paired it, re-set everything - no good. Any suggestions? What happens is - the phone pairs with the car stereo, the car stereo answers the phone - but there's no sound. Can't hear anything - on the car stereo, on the phone, nothing. And before anyone asks - yes, I am using it correctly, and the car is selected in the phone settings and when the call comes through. I used it successfully for months - until the latest OS upgrade... And then it stops. 6.0 was fine. Why would 6.1 fail? Why would the 6.1 upgrade cause this to happen? What have Apple changed in their bluetooth functionality for OS 6.1, that would make something that worked perfectly suddenly stop working after the 6.1 upgrade?? Why make these changes suddenly? Anyway, am very very annoyed. I need to answer my phone in the car, for goodness sake! Are you trying to make me get a blackberry or an android device, Apple?
I want to be able to personalize my iPhone more.
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
Why iphone cannot download video songs directly from safari..what is the trouble Why its bluetooth is not working for other android phones..wht is the trouble
I want to ask the apple store if they could have an app that android market does and that apple store doesn't, what is the apple store's email address?
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!
So if I buy a app do I have 24 hours to try it out and if I don't like it can I return it and now have my credit card charged ? It works that way for android so I was wondering if it worked that way on my iPhone 5
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
Anyone else having these problems? Since the release of ios 6 I have had problems with the sound cutting out randomly for several minutes, or as long as 2 days. I really don't think this is a hardware issue because I do not use a dock and I can tell the speaker still works because it will play my ringtones but I am unable to hear keyboard clicks, txt's, and music, sound in apps, ect. And the sound slider completely dissapears In all apps except for the "sounds" tab in settings. I know my volume buttons work because you can see that in the sound tab as well. I have tried backing up to an earlier point in time as well as completely restoring as a new phone and neither methods have worked. I have also cleaned my dock connector repeatedly. It will work for about a second, just long enough to hear the unlock click, after restarting the phone, the. Goes away again. Which brings me to my next point. My phone will not turn off unless it is plugged in. If it isn't plugged in and I try to turn it on. The screen goes black for a couple seconds and then It turns back on. Now I don't want to just automatically assume that is a software glitch by apple but I don't know what else it is. If it is a software glitch apple needs to figure this crap out because I know I'm not the only one having this problem, and if it is in fact a hardware issue tell me how to fix it. I am not able to take it in to apple store because the nearest one is 3 hours away. Thanks apple and I hope we can fix this because I don't know how much longer I can handle not having sound for my alarm clock before I switch to android.
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 bought a new Iphone 5 on Monday and the O.S. at the time was 6.0.2. the phone ran warm and battery life was bad, i installed and upgraded to iOS 6.1.2 and the issue still remains, very poor battery life I charged the phone all day and night, left to go to work and school, went from 100% at 8am and down too 48% at 12pm today with some light usage of spotify and one phone call..this is ridiculous don't tell me I have to keep charging my phone MIDDAY to make it last... Seriously apple very disappointed with the battery issue and I don't want to exchange to an android platform at this time but this may force my hand.
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 bought a Iphone 4s from my friend with the sim card in it, and it still has his number in the phone. I have the serial number to it. The problem is that when I went to the sprint store, it said that the Iphone was either lost or stolen so I couldn't which my number from my old phone (android). Is there any other way of putting my number on the Iphone by like a serious reset so I can stop using my android?
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.
Ever since the 6.1 update my battery dies as fast as my android did! :/ usually I can go all day, not since the update. Any thoughts?
I'm in Bangkok,Thailand and using Iphone4. My app store was down more than a week and I need help. I can still download apps but I cannot update them. It shows blank white page on update's page. I want this issue fix urgently before I change my mind to use android..however I will try to upload the software to 6.1 see if it's fixed or not.
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.
