Hi,I've installed Boom. Beach on iPad but did not realize something had happened and logged me off the Game Center. So, I played for a few days reaching lvl 14 and installed the game on iphone for outside. When started the game for the 1st time Game Center data has been created on iphone with a new base and I realize i should reconnect iPad's Game Center. Now, when I enter on iPad, shows me a msg saying i have a game data on Game Center, asking me to convert my lvl 14 base for a lvl 1 game... Tryed to uninstall the game and the Game Center data, delete manually on iPad and iphone, but when i start the gane on iPad, always show the msg. So, i need to ERASE the data on the server, to be able to upload the correct one to. GC.... What do I do?????Tks in advance.
I recently upgraded to an iphone 5S but my iphone 4S ring tone didn't make the jump to the new phone, what happened? I also looked for the old ring tone (Alejandro Sanz, Corazon Partido) on iTunes and that also went missing. Help.
Hi Apple, All This has the potential to be a bit of a long story so bare with me. Thanks. I am a Apple user and so far I own several Apple products like iphone 4S, iphone 5, New iPad Retina(3) and iPad Air. All bought new and from official channels.Since I bought several of your products it's obvious that I like them and what they offer. Now… the bad things and experience that I had to deal with for the past days. One of my colleagues, thinking that it’s a good practical joke, played around with my iphone and keyed the access code as many time he was allowed. He amused himself with activating the 1 min freeze time after several failed login attempts. That until at some point the device “got annoyed” and “decided” to deactivate itself indefinitely.I got frustrated a bit because I was at work in the middle of the day and found myself with a useless phone, but no worries I do what the **** thing says “Connect to iTunes”. I went and installed the latest iTunes software on my work laptop. So far so good. No. No because with the latest iOS 7 you need to trust the computer that you are connecting with. How can I trust the computer if I can’t unlock the phone? That’s one stupid thing. I would make more sense if iTunes detected the device as deactivated and ask for an unlock code/apple id/icloud id, whatever. My frustration is going up notches.No worries I said, I’ll go home and use my personal laptop from which I have connected before, sync stuff, made backups, etc, and unlock the useless phone. Wrong. **** iTunes still requested me to allow access from the deactivated and impenetrable super phone. Next 24h I spent in frustration browsing the internet and calling Apple support. Found this:- iTunes still asking to trust the computer even if this was done several times before. Solution ranged from reinstalling drivers only to all software suite. Nothing worked for me.- To reactivate the device I need to go in recovery mode and erase all. For a **** lock code?????? Really???? I even contemplated exploits/tookits and jaibreaking solution. One would do anything to recover his data. No luck here also. I had to apply the radical solution and go in recovery mode and erase the device entirely. Another stupid thing, before erasing everything, I would make sense to allow/ask me to do a last minute backup. I wasn’t so lucky. In the end, because a practical joke, oddly built overeager security, a bug that it’s asking for already allowed permissions and the fact that my last backup was 6 months old(yes, normal people do not keep hour by hour backups) I lost most of my data, mostly photos that I will never get back. And yes, I know About iCloud backup over wireless and stuff. Do not why, I just don't use it. I'm hopping that somebody from Apple will read this and maybe take some notes. Sincerely, an ex happy customer.
If regular phone is used, no sound of dial tone or voices can be heard. Speaker works fine, as well as headset.
Hi I updated ISO 7.1.1 for my son, that he is using the iphone 4After the software updated, the media control was missing. I already searched the internet and did everything that was stated there but the volume and media controls are still missing. Only the ring tone is working.

The ring tone rings in settings, but does not ring during an incoming call. my iphone is in silent mode due to my job responsibility but it vibrates when incoming call. past few days it dosen't work properly. sometimes it vibrates sometimes it dosen't. how can i fix the problem! some1 plz help me
I bought my iphone 5 two months ago on on contract with Vodafone Ireland. However in the last week I was taking pictures, noticing that in bright pictures there is a slight tone/colour distortion! I attempted to clean the lens on the rear camera and upon closer inspection, I came to realise that there is a speck of dirt/dust under the lens which is creating this distortion in the images! Since there are no Apple stores in Ireland, how do I contact Apple about this? I want this problem fixed, these are expensive phones and it is a joke to find such a problem! OR if I take the phone to vodafone, will they replace/fix it?
Hi, I have added a free game from my brothers ID I earlier had access to, I have progressed too much in it and now it restricts me to play as it needs an update, my brother does not want to share the password, the game was installed and played on my device by me only, any way I can use it with my ID or any solution to this, much appreciated.
I wanted to ask how can i delete all contents on my account,game scores,games and achievements,friends etc.. ?I would really appreciate it much!Thanks in advance.
I'm using an iphone 5s with the LG HBS730 (tone+). I'm having problems with the audio quality during phone calls with this headset - using the handset or speaker phone is fine, and music sounds great on the headset. I would describe it as sounding distorted like speakers being played too loudly or blown out, but this distortion is present at all volumes levels with the headset. The problem is less present when someone speaks softly. I do not have trouble controlling the volume of the headset, unlike some other users have reported - the controls are very responsive. I've tried re-pairing the headset and the phone - nothing changed. This was also a problem under iOS 7.0.4 - i tried upgrading, hoping the issue would be fixed.
Hi. I cannot get the sound to work on my iphone 4S for texting or if I want to listen to music. It works for calls but not for text notifications. I tried to do each one individually and the sound worked when I played it to choose the tone but when I got a text, it still did not work.
Today during a 12 hour period my phone went from 100% to 8%. During this time I listened to audio podcasts for 2 hours, checked weather & bus apps for about 10 minutes total, read/sent emails for about 15 minutes, sent/received 3 texts, played Soduku for 30 minutes and read tweets for 30 minutes. For the rest of the time the phone was just sitting on my desk. I didn't have location services on. Is this typical for the iphone 5s, or is it likely that I have a bad battery? Thanks in advance
This morning, when I was on the bus, my iphone started to play a sound as if it was activated from the Find my iphone application. I also received an e-mail on my Apple ID e-mail account that a sound was played on my iphone. How is this possible as I'm 100% sure that I didn't do it ? Is it possible to find out from what device this request to play a sound was given ? Kind regards,Ronny
I can recieve texts emails everything, but I can only answer/make calls with speakerphone! wot shall I do? this started last week when the corner of phone got wet in the rain got it working again for 4 more days, then last night when phone battery died the problem came back. Rebooted the phone both cold and regular a dozen times to no avail! thing is the speaker works you can play music and hear the text tone just cant hear the caller on other end! phone is only 15 months old and only phone i have! help!!!! sure AT & T will love to charge me full price for a new phone. Really want it to last till the 6 comes out around Oct??any help is more than welcome.
Hi everyone! I have an iphone 5s and a normal iphone 5.Both iPhones have a Vodafone card. The 5s has always a good connection (3-4 bars), but the normal iphone 5 has only one bar. If you try to do a call from the iphone 5 you can hear sometimes the rining tone is bad and then the call fails. We replaced already the iphone 5 at the Apple store, afterwards same issue.We also replaced the Vodafone card, afterwards same issue. All other cell phones in the house (additional 2x iphone 4) are working also properly. So what the **** could cause this problem? Is that an iphone 5 general issue? Has someone the same issues? thx!Alexander
I updated to 7.1.1 yesterday and now my in call touch tone isnt working - very annoying. Tried a reset and reset the keybvoard. Niether worked
I was befuddled by this for a long time.Alert sounds would just stop making noise. This includes dings from txt messages and new mail.If I went to Settings>Sounds>Text tone and select several options, all I would get were vibrations.I rebooted the phone and toggled the silence switch on and off. I finally figured out that if I started a game and turned the volume up, the noises would come back. I think it is reasonable for a user to wish to play a game on mute but still hear alert messages. I think if we can only have two separate systems for audio control, the alert sounds should be tied to the ringer, not to the media/game sounds. When I spoke to an apple support person over online chat, they seemed to agree that this sounds like a bug. I have seen many confused posts in these forums regarding alert sounds suddenly disappearing. Below is the text that I submitted at http://www.apple.com/feedback/ If you share this problem, I suggest you do the same. My case number is 606343836 Begin message: I've had a 5S since a few weeks after launch and this problem has only come about in the last few weeks, so I suspect it has to do with a recent OS patch.Sometimes my alert messages just stop working. They seem to work one minute, then they stop. Alert messages would include email notifications and txt message pings. When they are not working, I can go into Settings>Sounds>Text tone, and all of the options will simply result in a vibration and no sound. Rebooting the phone does not fix the problem.What I have found to fix the problem is to open a game and raise the volume of the game. Then when I exit the game, alert messages start again. This seems reversible, if I go back in and mute a game, my alert messages go away as well.If this is by design, I do not think it should be, as I think it is reasonable for a user to want to control the "media" part of the volume separately from the "ringer" and "alerts" part of the volume. It makes sense to want play a game or video on mute but still get alert messages. If anything, I think the alerts volume should be tied to the ringer volume, I think that would make sense.
i just bought a new iphone and went to sync all my stuff on the computer. when it finished some of the songs have a cloud beside it and can only be played while connected to the internet. i purchased these songs and there on my itunes. how do i get them to all download to my phone? i had this problem with my old phone but cant find the link how to fix them and i forget. can someone help me out here. thanks
Hello. Some years ago I owned an iphone 4. A couple of months before my contract expired with ATT the phone started to have audio issues. Eventually the speakerphone and ringer was completely gone. I now have and iphone 5. I have also had this phone for 2 years as of last month. I noticed it has started having issues as well. Today my music stopped playing through the attached headphones and instead started playing on speaker. I had to remove headphones from headphone jack and put it back and it played correctly again. This is the second time this has occurred. I enjoy my Apple products. I am typing this on my iPad. I was waiting for what the next iphone might bring. However because this is my second phone to have audio/speaker issues at the 2 year mark, I am wondering if I should consider a different phone. Has anyone else had these type of issues with iphone? Thanks.
i downloaded a song from itunes onto my phone is there a way to make the song my ringer tone
My iphone 5C was charging until someone accidentally knocked it over and once it hit the ground, the screen was black. The light was still on in the background but it was black and then eventually the light went out too. I tried doing the resetting trick and even plugged it into the charger. The trick didn't work and when plugged in to the charger, it either plays the charging tone or charging vibration repeatedly. I tried plugging into my mac and it still recognizes my phone, but only tries to back it up (yet it fails to do that because it keeps telling me it cannot back up until phone is unlocked). I do admit, there has been some water damage to the phone in the past, but it had been working perfectly fine since then. At this point, I don't know what to do.
Can anyone tell me why when I sync my personal CDs from my MBA to my iphone via iTunes the songs are visible but cannot be played unless I am on my home network? I am able to see all the songs but they are all grayed out and cannot be played when using AT&T (cell/data) network. Again, I can play the songs when I am connected to my home wi-fi but that's it. It is my understanding I should be able to play the songs synced to iphone from anywhere - home network and wireless cell/data network. Should it work without internet connectivity as well? Thanks...I am new to iPhones (only a couple months) and love it, but I need a bit of help. I appreciate it!
Hi, I am on-call and the sms ring tone is max 40 secs. notification doesn't seem to work though I pick 10. Is there any sms on-call software out there. I switch off all sounds at night, with that apps running, I can still receive continues alarms until I read the message? or is there an alternative way, so alarm can be continuous until I read the message? thanks Andrew
I played Indestructible since I bought iphone 4s, then I bought iphone 5 and now I have 5s. I continue to play this game on all devices by my own account and scores are not updated and latest score earned date is 12 Sept 2013. How to solve my latest score to be shown on my all devices and updated?
I previously had an iphone 4s which paired and played just beautifully with my 13 Kia using the USB cable provided by Kia. WhenI got the iphone 5s, I also purchased a lightning pin so I could use the cable in my car. I use my iphone for not only saved music but navigation and It is important that not only the audio play through the radio, but that the phone charges too.At first, I couldn't get the phone do anything but pair with the contacts so I could at least make calls. I read a post from someone that said turning it(The phone) on and off solved the problem. I did that and now I see on the dash the name of the song that's playing and the controls work but I can'tHear anything. The audio just doesn't come through.I've tried using a seperate USB and and audio plug, no good. It seems that a lot of ppl are having some kind of issue with audio in the car with the ip5.Help... I would have kept the 4 if I would have known!!!
my iphone suddenly stopped making ring tone on in coming calls. callers tell me that my phone goes immediately to voice mail when they call. how can I rectify this please?
Hi all, Need your help: I am having a set of podcasts in iTunes that I would like to listen to when jogging. Before the introduction of the Podcast.app this was working seamlessly via iTunes Mac<>iphone synce (i.e., I created a iTunes smart playlist that pulled together these podcast based on type of podcast, date of postcast, and played statef of the podcast). The podcasts were synced to my iphone as soon as I connected the iphone, and I could start his playlist When Podcast.app was introduced, this system broke. Apparently, Apple had decided (rather oddly) to keep Podcasts and Music on Mac in one app (iTunes), but split them up on the iphone into two separate apps (Music.app and Podcast.app). While this is a surpising design decision, I would not really mind that unless is severly negatively impacts on my ability to just go running and listed to my podcasts. Unfortunately, it does just that: Giving me breaks in playback and other issues all the time... In the beginnig iphone sync did not work at all, so basically you could not listed to podcasts in any meaningful way (see this forum and people complaing). I thought this had been fixed with an update of Podcast.app. While somewhat better, I, at least, still do not get my Podcast.app to just play my podcast from the beginning of the playlist ("station") to the end. OK, so this is the current issue: I have set up iTunes to sync (all) podcasts with my iphone automatically (I basically have the iphone on the USB cable all the time when at home, syncing immediately before going jogging, there is ample space on the iphone)... I have a station called "Jogging" which essentially does the same as the former smart playlist, pulling unplayed podcasts/ Still, for reasons that I do not understand and hence do not know how to prevent the iphone still attempts to load podcasts episodes. Leading to the playback stopping while jogging... I made screenshots of what comes up at this point: First this:Then that: I really do not understand this, as my iTunes is fully updated and synced with the iphone and iTunes shows "62 unplayed podcasts" for itself as well as for the iphone. (1) Why is the darn machine trying to load from 3G when the podcasts are physically on the phone (and why is it asking me and not just doing it, I have told it to use 3G like 100 times to "turn mobile data on", in fact I never restricted mobile data in any way, it is always on) (2) Or, alternative explanation, why the darn podcast not on the iphone if iTunes shows it at being there, and should be there by setup? Regardless if it is (1) or (2), how can I prevent Podcast.app from stopping playback? The Podcast.app will get me killed, as I have to fiddle with my iphone more while jogging then actually looking out for cars, very dangerous in the city. If I am actually getting killed, I will sue Apple for sure... Happy for any solution to this! (including what I might do wrong) Appreciate your ideas!
Does anyone know if you can turn a song into a ringtone for the iphone?
Why does test tone keep playing after opening text?
So yeah as the title says. I was on the bus listening to some music and calling friends, then my stop came so i got off the bus and took out my headphones. I got home and went to make a call to realise the proximity sensor at first, then i couldnt hear anyone. I played with the volume and realised it was stuck in headphone mode and i cant fix it. Iv tried blowing into it, sucking it, cleaning it out with toothpicks etc. Any other ideas before i take it the apple store? Cheers,Dylan
Despite my settings to just sync unplayed episodes of selected podcasts, my iphone shows ALL podcasts and includes episodes that have been marked as played already, even after syncing. Any solutions on getting the iphone to work properly? I don't have this issue with my iPod.
Device 16 GB 5S My phone was showing that I only had 76 MB of space left on it, so deleted a bunch of stuff thinking that it was full. After doing so I still gained no additional free space. So I began by looking at the usage information, I added up what was actually used to get a total of almost 7GB yet the other 5 GB was gone. Did a restore and updated to iOS 7.1 by doing that I gained the space back. Still curious to see what happened I deleted all the music from my phone all 491 songs. So now it shows all the songs are in the cloud beside each song. So I played a few songs and later checked the amount of usage by the music app, it was showing 18 songs and 132 MB of space in use. Yet all the songs were showing in the cloud still. Went to the apple store and they wiped it as there usual solution and they told me my backup was bad and to set it up as new. Did that and it showed no data under the usage for the music app. Sat down ate and played two songs and it did the same thing, went back to the store this time they gave me new phone. This time the cloud wouldn't even give me my old backup, so I set it up as new again. No problem left thinking it was the phone, well it's not. Got home started setting it up like before and I played a song and there it was again showing in the cloud yet it's deducting free space from the phone itself. Anyone have any ideas what going on?
my i phone has went off will not switch on when i ring it the rining tone is there so its still on but theys nothing comeing though to the iphone it is blank
My iphone 5 screen isnt working at all but there is a tone coming from the phone and when i put it on silent it vibrates twice every 3 or 4 seconds?
I just got the iphone 5s yesterday. I am very paranoid about my battery life because I am a very heavy userThat being said, I expect my battery to die a bit quicker than your average person. However, I felt today's test run wasn't normal. I charged the phone fully overnight. Got up around 630 am. played with it a bit, Facebook and settings and such so nothing major. I used it to stream pandora on my way to work for 30 mins. Got to work at 8 for a meeting and didn't really touch it, yet still it dropped. around 930 it was at like 80% or so. I used it again for pandora for another 30 minutes. By lunch time at like 1130 it was at like 740. I had Bluetooth and my mobile hotspot on for like 10 minute and then I may have forgotten to turn Bluetooth off until a bit later. By around 3 or so it was in the 60% range. I didn't use it at all until about 6 and it dropped down to 55%ish and by 10 when I go home it was at 25% and now at 1130 at 10%. The odd thing is throughout the day I may have picked it up a bunch and unlocked an locked it and got on Facebook but I constantly closed out of apps and didn't really use it that heavily... Is this usage normal? I felt like at times it was dropping 1% like every few minutes... Please share some insight! Thanks :]
Why is it that the iphone 5s gets hot after a using for a couple of minutes and sometimes its too hot to hold. I have noticed that it generally gets hot when using internet, when I played games like Real Racing its does get hot but is managable but when I start using Facebook, Safari or any app that uses internet it starts heating up.
Was listening to bluetooth headphones earlier. Turned them off. Got a phone call, answered and could not hear anything but the caller could hear me. Hit the volume button and it says headphones. played music- no sound. Got another phone call, can hear the caller if I use the speaker. Turned the headphones on and off again, turned bluetooth off on phone, removed the headphones from my bluetooth devices list, closed all previously used apps and re-started phone. Same thing. Doesn't matter if I send or get a call, can't hear them. Anybody else have such a problem? What else can I try? The headphones are Plantronics Beats Go 2. Checked their website, and although there's a ton of issues with Plantronics bluetooth devices (Great!) my issue is unheard of.
Hi everyone- So my iphone 5 had been working perfectly on iOS 7.0. Then I heard all these amazing reviews about iOS 7.1, so I made the upgrade last week. DO NOT MAKE THAT MISTAKE!! I have been having problems with FaceTime, Siri, and basically anything which relies on my microphone. When I make calls it's just complete silence on my end - no ring tone or anything. The person receiving the call will hear the phone ringing but they can't hear any sound from my side. On FaceTime, I can see and hear the other person. They can see me, but they can't hear me. When I talk to Siri, there is no noise being registered by the system - the sound wave doesn't move at all and it keeps prompting me to say something! So here's the kicker too: if I try to reset the iphone it will go into a reboot cycle. I have tried to restore the phone in DFU mode - that helped for maybe half a day and then the microphone went back to not working. I am afraid to reset my phone because it might get stuck in that reboot loop and never turn on again! Some things to mention: 1) Before someone says the microphone is broken.. I don't think that's the problem because rarely (after 20 Facetime tries or so), the calls will go through and everyone can hear me perfectly.2) I have tried toggling noise reduction3) I have tried toggling airplane mode and do not disturb4) I have tried cleaning the microphones (all of them- front back and bottom)5) Checked my Verizon account, no holds on that6) Even if you can't help, thanks for reading. You've helped because I just need to vent. Lol. Any suggestions? I really need to use the phone for - you know - phone calls!! PLEASE HELP!! It seems like other people have been having problems with iOS 7.1 relating to the microphone but nothing seems to work for me. Thanks,Chris
I played around afterwards (on and off, home button, I didn't know I was supposed to turn it off. also, the home button doesn't work) so I'm pretty sure rice won't get it working again. I downloaded a Notes application because the one built in app kept deleting my notes. I have important notes in that application and it never required a login so it's not saved in their system either, so I'm guessing I can never get those notes back via my phone's memory card?
I have an iphone 5, tonight listening to radio online, audio just stopped (was still streaming). Tried resetting, then played around with volume button which told me it was connected to headphones (but it's not). Plugged in headphones & it works fine. Called my phone from my wife's & audio is fine & it rings. Need to say I purchased in December 2012 so not sure if in warranty still (I live in Australia & think it is)? Also I dropped 3 months ago & cracked screen (def my fault) but it been working fine until,few hours ago Will apple repair since I dropped & cracked screen?
I have an iphone 5s. I set the ringtone for incoming text messages, but when a message arrives the phone only vibrates. Am I missing a step?
When i am using my phone the texttone will sound when i have a text message. When i am not on my phone it will not make any sounds that i just received a message. I have played with the settings and havent gotten anywhere with it.
Hi guys, so I've noticed this problem with my iphone 5s (iOS 7.0.4) speaker. Everytime I played something on the speaker (a song, or played game with theme music. I always turn my speaker up to max volume) right after I turn the sound off and text my friends or search sth on my phone (using spotlight search) the keyboard click souds inconsistent. The first click would sounded louder, and every keyboard click after that would souned normal (sound softer, smaller than the first click). I've tried to restore my iphone but the problem is still there. Is sth wrong with my speaker? Can you guys help me please? Do you guys have any suggestion or solution to fix this problem? I'm a bit worry. If sth is wrong I guess I have to take it to the nearest Apple Store. Please help me. Thanks in advance!
My iphone 4s is not playing any music or text tone (just vibrates) but it will ring if I get a call. If I plug my cable into phone and play music (threw my car) then remove cable it works like normal. This last a couple of hours but when I go to play music again my phone is back in dock mode even though I haven't connected any cable to it. What I call dock mode is when you can tell the music is playing but you hear no sound and also the volume control is not visible. I have tried doing a soft reset (holding power and home button until apple logo appears), turning silent mode "OFF" and "ON", turned wifi "OFF" and "ON", and turned bluetooth "OFF" and "ON". It started this with iOS 7.0.1 I upgraded to iOS 7.0.2 thinking it would help with no luck.
I have an iphone 4s in that i can't able to play the music but the music can be played using my headseat can anyone solve this
hi Friends, My phone got swithced off suddenly and its not geeting on, & i have tried a call form anohter phone to my number, I can hear the tone, but my phone is dumb
