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

I have iphone 5 the screen is black and thers no apple logo and i put it in the charger and thers all the time the sharging tone what can i do whats the problim and also my home button not working
Recently when placing or receing calls on my iphone 5 (running iOS7 and previous version) I hear what sounds like someone hitting a number button coming across my speaker. The other caller cannot hear this, but I can. It's not me accidentially hitting it, it's like a phantom tone somehow making it's way through my call. I have recently swapped out my old iphone 5 due to an issue and apple replaced it with a new one... It never did this before. Does anyone have a simple fix for this? Otherwise I may have to go in again...
Hello,I have the following problem. During a conversation in iMessages my phone will shake non stop with each reply. I have turned off vibrations in Settings->Sounds->Text tone->Vibration->NONE However during a chat the phone will shake continuously during a conversation. Each and every reply will make the phone vibrate which is very annoying. The only way to make my phone stop vibrating is if I turn off "Vibrate on Ring" under Sounds. This isn't practical because in reality I would like my phone to vibrate when I receive a text message or a phone call. But I don't need it to vibrate during a conversation. Not sure if this is a bug in iOS 7 but my iphone 4S never did this on iOS 6. iphone 5SiOS 7.0.4 Best Regards.
Hi Alan,in a response in this forum you wrote:Allan Sampson Central Texas This solved my questionRe: Harassing phone calls/text messages Jan 4, 2010 9:08 AM (in response to ToxicShockTaco) The iphone does not include an option to block receiving texts and phone calls from a designated number, which must be done at the server level where texts/calls originate. There is no 3rd party app that provides for this either, and there won't be. 1) WHY "there won't be" ?2) If for some reason "there won't be" harassing call blocking 3rd party app, there might be an app that mute those unwanted calls by using silent ring tone. So this way calls are not blocked, they just don't bother you anymore... does it violate amy Apple rule? Please comment.Thanks
When playing music at full volume, for roughly an hour, my month old iphone 5s's screen cracked. Is this normal? what can i do to fix it?
In 'Vibrate Only' mode switched on the iphone 4s (iOS7), whenever I play videos on (ex. Vine), no sound is played even if i try increasing the volume. Sound does play when I flick the switch to 'Vibrate on Ring' mode though. Is there a way to fix this? I didn't have this problem before iCloud had synced my settings and everything onto the phone. (P.S this has been happening before iOS7 for me, I just never found a way to fix it)
My phone has lost all sound except the ringer. Initially it was telling me I had headphones in when I didn't and now the volume control is either missing or greyed out so I can't use on music and video. Messages have no tone but calls do.
A week back my iphone ringer started buzzing when I played any audio or the ring and then yesterday suddenly the speaker stopped working completely. I shook my phone twice or thrice and it worked but then again it went off and my iphone became dumb now. It doesnt ring or play any sounds. What to do..??Thanks in advance.
Suddenly, with iTunes 11.1.4, my iphone 5S (iOS 7.0.4) disconnects from my Win7 PC when I select "Trust." When I plug it in I can hear the tone of a device being plugged in, but when I select "Trust" (haven't seen this dialog box...ever?) I hear the tone of a device being disconnected. This happens whether iTunes is running or not. Sync is only possible over wi-fi right now, and is not complete. Has anyone found this same/similar error and have a solution for it? Resetting settings on the phone does not help (except waste half an hour getting things back the way I had them), all of the services in Win7 are loaded and started as specified. Help greatly appreciated.
I have several complaints about Visual Voicmail since the iOS 7 upgrade. The speaker and delete tabs are less repsonsive to the touch. It was much easier to turn on the speaker and delete the messages on the previous OS. I find it impossible to rewind the message. As soon as I open up message and try to listen by turning on the speaker I keep swiping the speaker tab and nothing happens. By the time I turn the speaker on several seconds have played and I can't rewind to start over. I then have to close the message and start over. You can't put the phone to your ear to listen because the skin contact stops the message. You can't listen to the message while the phone is locked mode. I tried doing this so I could the phone up to my ear and not have the contact stop the message. I have also noticed a much reduced storage since iOS 7. Now this could be because ATT reduce the storage capacity. The new iOS so inferior to the previous version in so many ways too numerous to count. The visual voicemail was once a pleasure to use now it is chore. Literally any touch on the phone will stop the message playback. I am using iphone 5. I am not having problem with screen using any other apps. This is strickly a voicemail issue.
How do I keep my text message tone from notifying during a call? I am sure there is some way to turn that option off but I can not find how.
I've tried resetting all settings and tried to alter the sound in settings. It plays ringtones and alarm works but no message alert tone or touch tone lock tone radio and when I try to turn the volume up by the buttons I just get the bell with no volume bar. I don't know what's going on it's annoying I don't wanna have to wear headphones all the time. How do I fix it ???
I have just finally updated to ios 7.0.4 on my iphone 5 and i cant hear people during a call very well at all... i also can hardly hear the dial tone when i ring someone....? has anyone else had this and fixed it? It is extremely annoying. thanks
I have the iphone 5S on the Sprint network that I purchased in December. While on a call, I am hearing random dial tones as if someone is pressing the key pad. The person that I am speaking with does not hear the sound. It happens very random in terms of frequency and the number of times I hear the dial tone on a call. Also note that I am not accidently pressing the key pad during conversations; this issue happens while using my Apple earbuds as well. Is there a resolution to this issue? It is quite annoying and disruptive during conversations.
Title says it all. I'm really getting sick of websites getting more and more into your business. Google forcing you to get a G+ account and asking for your identifying information, for example (like your phone number). It's extremely irritating, and I'm opting out of everything that enforces the such. If Apple begins pushing like this, I will just close my relationship with the company and obtain apps by using third-party software to force them onto the phone. But before going that far, I'd like to find work arounds. First of all, I don't even know why it asks me for my "state". I don't even live in the USA anymore, as I moved to China (though I won't use the Chinese store as I don't speak or understand the local language, which is Chinese). All I want... is to continue using the English App Store to get free apps from here in my home in China, without getting stopped by Apple asking for more info on me. I don't want to share my name, I don't want to share my address, and I can't even complete the form as I no longer have a "state" and don't have any credit info. So that's just that. If there's no way around it I'll find another way to install apps without the App Store. Sorry for the message tone, I'm just really irritated with the way the internet is getting. Thanks in advance! - Alex
Hi. For some reason my iPhones sound for all ring tone, lock, music loudspeaker has become very foamy and can hardly hear it. Both speakers are still working however just at low sound. In settings volume is turned up and bottons on the side are fully up.?
It's the same tone/sound that was in the previous iOS. You can put your phone on vibrate and that will resolve the issue.
My iphone 5 purchased in September recently started to not emit any noise when receiving texts/emails/calls or unlock and lock and no keyboard clicks. It will however play these sounds when I click them in settings under the sound column I can hear my ring text tone etc and can even play music over the loud speaker. Anyone have any suggestions or help
My iphone 5s does not ring when receive phone calls. Tried turned the volume to highest, but still not working. Is there any button that I am missing? Or there is a problem with my iphone?
I've noticed the last few days since I have updated to iOS7 and updated the facebook and twitter apps my push notifications for facebook and twitter seem to keep vanishing overnight. When I wake up in the morning I see I've had no notifications from either app overnight and they are gone from my notification center. I have to launch both apps when I wake up and I will get the pop up asking to authorize the app to send notifications and I click OK. Then I have to go into the notification center in the settings where they will now be back in the list where they always were and change back from banners to alerts. I go through the day fine and will then get alerts sent to me all day for everyone and everything I have set them up to send to me then overnight the next night I get none again and in the morning I have to go through this all over again. No notifications all night and I have to launch both apps and get the message asking to authorize push notifications which I will OK again then have to go into the notification center to change back to alerts from the banners. At first I thought it was something with the Twitter app but now facebook has started doing it as well so I don't think it's an issue with just the Twitter app. Maybe it's because I'm still on the iphone 4 (thank you contract agreements & not being able to upgrade) and something is glitching with it? I don't know. It's played well with iOS7 otherwise. I depend on the alerts to catch up on what I miss during the day so I really don't want to have to remember to go into these apps every morning to re-authorize the push notifications then go to the notification center to reset them to "alerts" so I don't still miss smething because it then defaults to the useless banners again. Anybody else seeing this issue?
I have done a lot of reading and I have played around with iphone 4's that have iOS 7. They run hot, randomly shut off, wifi chip gets shot, mic issues and slight lag on user interface. I am not having any harware problems with my iphone 4 yet. It runs perfectly fine on iOS 5. No slowdowns, no lag, no random shut off, no overheating, no wifi issues. But I am running an outdated OS that leaves me vunlerable when I surf the web. I also have an issue with not receiving picture messages ever since T-mobile launched a carrier update for iOS 6 and higher. Typing my MMS settings on iOS 5 does not work like it used to a year ago. I miss it but I have lived without it for awhile. It is 2014 now and I find myself with a smart phone that can't do picture messaging or visual voicemail. I know all electronic devices can have issues with firmware updates. It is a big gamble even if everything is working fine prior to update. I have never been good at gambling, I bought several lottery tickets and haven't hit the jackpot yet. I don't know whether I should gamble and update my phone just so I can get three things; more up to date version of Safari, visual voicemail and picture messaging. Is it worth the risk? Buying a new phone is not a good option at the moment I'm kind of broke. If I were to get another one it would have to be a newer model and those are pricy. Anyone with success stories of iphone 4 and iOS 7 please tell me is it worth the risk? Or do you wish to go back to iOS 5 or iOS6? Stay with older software that is fast but lacks features or go with new software with more features but slow down and possibly brick your phone?
My iphone 4 recently, and suddenly, has sound issues. The volume icon does not appear when the volume buttons or slide bar are pushed. As well, the volume buttons do not increase or decrease the sound. There is no sound when my text tone should be played. My volume bar still appears in Music and Youtube, but I do not have sound from any other apps. My speakers are functional. My ringer and alarm still sound.I did not drop it in water.I have blown into the headphone and charger port.I have cleaned both the ports with a clean toothbrush. I recently updated my software to iOS 7.0.4 and bought/used a non-Apple brand iphone charger. I am technologically challenged and would very much appreciate help!
My iPhone5 is not charging, my nice played games on my iPhone5 it drain up to 20% of the battery so i recharge it, but all of a sudden it wont charge... i already restart my phone but still not charging... i hope you can help me
I just got this phone last week. Since I've had it, it hasn't vibrated at all. I've tried everything - vibration is turned on for Silent and Ring, all of the individual things are set to various vibration patterns, etc. It also does not vibrate when I select different vibration patterns in order to choose one for a tone. I'm on iOS 7 and the phone is totally new. Any suggestions?
Hi all, I've uploaded 2 ringtones(in ringtone format) to my iphone 5 (iOS 7.0.4) using iTunes 184.108.40.206screenshothttp://s020.radikal.ru/i719/1312/12/3762817e7138.jpgbut nothing appears in Settings=>Sounds=>Rington / Text tone can someone help?
Hello, Recently purchased a 5S, I'm loving it so far, but have noticed that I'm having an issue with the Messages app repeating a text if I haven't looked at it. In Notification Center, under Messages, I have... Badges/Banners enabled. Show in Notifciation Center (5 Recent) Show on Lock Screen IS DISABLED Show preview is enabled Repeat Alerts is set to 3 times Custom Alert tone (if that matters) And show Alerts from everyone. Now, I've done some of my own troubleshooting, and I can get it to repeat a text alert IF LOCK SCREEN IS ENABLED. This is very disappointing and shouldn't matter whether or not this is the only way to allow repeat tones to go off. I have lock screen off for personal reasons, I don't need family or wandering eyes looking at my phone if I'm not around (Passcode and Touch ID are enabled but there was an incident in the past concerning my privacy) I've tried a hard reset, and when I setup this 5S it was restored from a backup of my 4S (which in hindsight didn't do repeat alerts either) Does anyone have an answer for me? Like I said, very disappointing that could be a simple fix. -Conrad

I downloaded a ringtone app on my iphone 4s and i was wonder if you could transfer them from the app to the phone and how to set them as the ringtone and text tone
We recently upgraded my daughter's phone from a Samsung to an iphone 5, originally running iOS 6, now running iOS 7. The Samsung (Android) phone used less than .5 MB per month, whereas the iphone 5 will consume that much data in one day. About 80% of the phone's usage is on WiFi, and is only actively used on the cellular network less than an hour a day. However, the phone and the Verizon data usage log show data being consumed even when connected continously to wifi. With help from a Verizon representative, we turned off location services, closed all background apps and stopped automatic updates and refreshes, shut off icloud, email, and anything else that could possibly be running in the background or consuming data. The changes didn't do anything to slow the usage, and the Verizon reps suggested that my daughter was secretly using her phone in the middle of the night to play games and watch movies. At Verizon's recommendation, we signed up for parental controls, and set them to prevent the phone from being used during the school day, and at night. However, the phone and Verizon continue to show data use in tiny increments 24 hours per day. These post in the Verizon data usage logs about every 10 minutes, and are typically 10-20KB. Using the parental controls, I set a hard data stop each week so that we could meter her data out over a month's time and prevent overages. It is supposed to stop all data usage on the phone once she reaches a preset limit. She would usually hit the 1GB limit in a day or two, but the phone and Verizon's data usage log show that the phone continues to bleed data 24 hours per day even after the limit is reached and she is unable to use her phone. Verizon can offer no explanation. In addition to the data bleed, the actual data usage for virtually any activity that required data is substantially higher than what I would see for the same use on my iphone 4s. For example, a couple of youtube videos played on her iphone 5 resulted in 0.8GB being used in just a few minutes, vs about 50MB on my 4s for the same videos. Verizon seems to suggest that this is due to the higher resolution and speed, but it seems excessive. Here's a Youtube video I found that seems to show our exact issue. We've done similar tests on our phone, with the same results. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9AR2rEFcKk Although it is frequently suggested that the "fix" for this problem is to turn off cellular, that hardly addresses the problem. It would also mean we have purchased a very expensive iPod. Is there anyone who can help us address this issue? Verizon has been no help, and does not acknowledge this as an ongoing problem, despite the fact that there are countless articles, blogs, and videos online about the very same issue. We have tried a number of the "fix" recommendations we've found online, but thus far have had no success.
I notice this isn't a new topic, but I've never really seen a real solution or any follow up...hoping someone can share their experiences. This happened to my brand new 5s. The charging tone went off every 5 seconds when plugged in...kept doing it so I tried that hard reboot (holding both buttons down), only it did not come back! The charging tone still went off when plugged in, though. Attached to the computer USB, iTunes does indicate it is charging. But no matter what, the phone will not turn back on. I took it to the Apple store. They immediately try the two-button reset...fail. They plugged one of their own lightening cables in it, and witnessed the repeating charging tone, and it not booting up. Finally, they took it back behind closed doors asking me to come back in half an hour. I come back half an hour later asking for my phone. After talking to three "helpful" employees, a tech(?) walks out of the doors with my phone saying "There's nothing wrong with it". The tech says all she did was charge it and it came back. I asked if the charging tone went off every 5 seconds. She said "No". She kept repeatedly telling me the "battery was completely...completely dead" and just needed to sit in the charger for a while before it can power back on. I told her I had this plugged in for hours the day before to see if the repeating tone would go away...with two different OEM cables, and we tried this using one of your own store cables a while ago before it got to her (It was so obvious the employee was going to tell me "bad cable"). Anyway, the tech just kept throwing up her arms, smiling, nervously giggling... I just rolled my eyes back and warned her I'll be back asking for her and her manager if this happens again. Anyway... I do not believe the Apple store was being honest with me. They had to have done something, but they are not revealing what it is. Does anyone know or have real information to this strange charging symptom followed by it never booting up? It'd be even better if there was a quick solution to it (opposed to making an appointment with the Apple store).
Hi, I've had my 5S for nearly 2 months now (firmware up to date) and it's been fine apart from 1 problem, it reboots when I play games on it.It doesn't get a blue screen like some people get but the screen goes white with the black apple logo for a few secs and then the home screen appears. Weirdly, When it happens the home and sleep button both become unresponsive and sometimes the screen does too for about 1 min and then it reboots. It's happened about 10 times since I've had it, it's been mostly happening when I play "Fifa 13" but it's not all the time some days it's fine. Today it happened when playing the game "Dead trigger 2" for the first time even thought I've been playing it nearly every day for 2 weeks. At first I though it could be down to Fifa but I can't find anybody with a problem with it, I played it on my 4S too with this problem.(As in writing this I remembered it also happened once when using a app called "movieshare" I did call apple support a few weeks ago but the women on the phone told me to "reset all settings" but that did not work.I thought about taking it to the store but what will I show them? I'd maybe have to play a game for 20-30 mins for it to happen IF it does happen as it's a hot and miss when it does. It a bit depressing this is happening as £630 is a lot of money and you would think this wouldn't happen for such a expensive phone. Any suggestions?
This just happened to me out of the blue about an hour ago. Everything was working just fine and then boom, no sound at all and my side buttons are not working. The bell still shows up when I hit the buttons, but the actual volume bar does not appear. Now, my speakers work just fine too because when I go to my seeting and adjust my ringtone, the tone starts playing just fine and my side buttons work for the volume bar in the settings menu for the ringtone. But when I go to my home screen, nothing works. If anyone can help me fix this, I would be very appreciative. This is very annoying and I want it fixed as soon as possible.
This just started to happen, my iphone keeps ringing even after I answer the call. I noticed that my battery was at 44% and I'm using the original ring tone that came with the phone. I've had to hang up and redial my party in order to hear them over the ringing. They can not hear the ring.This happened with version 4.0 iphone software so I'm upgrading now to 4.01 (although this update is primarily for the signal bar strength).Not sure if changing the tone will help and since this is my only phone I can't call myself to test it.Any help would be appreciated.Message was edited by: JeffSchaber

I made a ring tone in garage band and saved it in my "ringtones" in Itunes but can figure how to attach it to my phone. Or how to find it IF it transfered already
My iphone recently stopped displaying calendar alerts. It sounds the alert tone but the screen remains black. Any thoughts?
My phone was working yesterday. This morning when I plugged in my headphones the sound was crackling and only played on one side. Now if the volume is below 75% it doesn't play any sound at all (through the audio jack). I know its my phone that has the problem because I tested my headphones and they work. I also checked the system settings for the max volume, accessability (left & right audio), and EQ. I think its a hardware problem. Any suggestions?
I only have an iphone, and most of my music is from my android phone. I have purchased songs from iTunes, and they are the only songs that play. Next to every other song, that I did not get from iTunes, there is a red circle with a red square inside it. It played fine, every song until last Saturday when this happened. About to switch back to android...
Can someone please help me out here! im getting very frustrated and annoyed with my replacement iphone! its ******* me right off!!! help me!! The soundcard in this iphone is **** and causing me a **** load of stress, i cant hear any movies being played, can barely hear any music and when on the phone i cant hear them!!
I did the iso update 7.0.3. for iphone 4s, know i have no ring tone, or msg tone, how do i fix it please.
Why doesn't my 4S phone always ring when I get calls? Mute is off, volume is up, it's set to vibrate and ring, I'm using the marimba ring tone. I've noticed the problem in the last month. I've googled this and found people talking about the problem being with the carrier (in my case AT&T) and that there's a back and forth blame fest. Does anyone have better info? A phone that doesn't ring consistently isn't worthwhile. I literally missed a call (went to voicemail) telling me my mother was in the emergency room yesterday. Can anyone shed light on the situation? Thanks!
I thought I posted this earlier this week, but it's nowhere to be found, so here it goes again. I have an iphone 5 with iOS 7, but this problem started with my iphone 4S and has continued. All of my notifications play the correct sound, except for Facebook and Twitter. When I receive a Facebook notification, no sound at all plays (except for when I receive a Facebook message). This started after I did an iOS update (not a major one) on my 4S. I have the sound for Twitter notifications set to "Tweet," but it plays the "Tri-tone" sound instead -- which was also the case on my old iphone. I have gone in and changed the settings to a bunch of different tones, then back to the ones I want, but to no avail. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
