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!
The screen on my I-Phone 4 just went blank. I plugged in the charger. You can hear the tone that the phone makes when the charger is attached but, still no screen. Can anyone help?
iphone 5 (16gb) user, I installed IOS 7 yesterday. Everything went well until I played Temple Run 2 and Ninja Slash. I checked my friends iphone 5 (32gb) if he's experiencing the same problem. I played the same app/game on his iphone and surprisingly it was smooth with no lag. as of the moment, I'm experiencing overall lag. Homescreen, assistive touch etc.
I recently aquired an iphone 4S, perfectly fine, around 2 months old. everything is working fine, and all apps and music are downloaded on to iTunes and WERE origionally on the iphone. I started to then add more songs from iTunes, though the phone started refusing to download them and then the majority of my collection were then deleted. I did origionally think that this was simply because it could not find the location of all the music files, though upon searching i found that iTunes could indeed fine every single file, and that they all played perfectly well in iTunes. I did reset the phone and try simply re-installing the exact same storage pre-reset, though it simply made all of the songs like that. The iphone (4S, 32GB, 4 month old) did have around 900 songs on it, all playing fine, though recently the number on iTunes is around 1240, though I don't want all the songs on. It is not that I am incapable of understanding the software of iTunes or of the iphone, and I have had previous Apple products and also had interaction with various models (iphone 5/5C/5S) and Android, so it this is where it stumps me on what the actual problem is.I have tried doing things like:Reseting the phoneMaking an individual playlist with all of the songs that I want on my phoneDownloading Albums/Artists/songs/playlists individually (as to rule out if it is a specific artist/song/so onDownloading everything and then trying to get iTunes to download the actual song directly When updating/syncing my options on the Music tap on iTunes when the iphone is plugged in, it registers on iTunes that the every song that I have ticked to be included in the sync has been synced, though upon checking my iphone on the music app, the majority of the music will either have failed to sync or not be there, or be registered but unplayable (the title of the song is slightly transparent/grey). Then upon inspection of the [Settings>General>About>Songs], the count does not equate to that which is stated on iTunes.Any help will be appreciated as soon as possible, as my iphone is used for music a significant amount of the time and the loss of around 700 songs off of my phone is quite significant. Bearing in mind that I am only 16 years old and have no actual IT knowledge in-depth of what is actually occuring other ethan what the consumers can see through such things as the settings and the location of files and their formats, I would be appreciative if any explanation wouldn't end up being too confusing, nor it being patronising (for instance, my ignorance of how to download music to iTunes) Thanks, atsdkg
I have an iphone 5c, and no it's not jail broken. I recently downloaded some torrent music, and I've put the music on my phone, and it just seems a little glitchy when that music is being played. Like skipping when I unlock my phone, etc. it's very small things, but I'm extremely concerned that it could lead to more problems. Is it possible I could have put a virus on my phone by dragging the torrent downloaded music from iTunes?
iphone 5 is not ringing for incoming calls post iOS 7 update. Have checked the sound settings and everything is in order. The ring tone rings in settings, but does not ring during an incoming call
Hi Everyone, Just a quick overview of the pain I have been going through. In dot points.iphone 4S droppedScreen replacement successfulSwitch it on and I could only see 'Searching' Tried everything I could to at least get 'NO SIM' to appear, no luck!I go to upgrade the iphone to iOS 7 and it stopped halfway or took ages so I unplugged itNow I CANNOT get the phone to restore to ANYTHINGTried DFU mode in iTunes, Tiny Umbrella, Red Snow and Evasion. NothingI switch the phone on and it displays the iTunes logo, iTunes appears and says its in Recovery ModeI try to restore it and it does not verifyThe first error I received was (1), then 3004 etcI played around with the host file, no goodTried different USB cable, USB port, PC, laptop, latest iTunes 11.1.2. Can anyone please help?I don't care what version of iOS I was to run. I just want the phone to work!PS: I've since updated other iphone 4S's successfully to iOS 7 on the laptop I'm using to fix the ruined 4S. Cheers.
I just read that Apple blocked uncertified lightning cables with the ios 7! Those were the only ones I had that WORKED, APPLE! I have a box full of certified chargers that don't work. The optimism I had for a better quality charger lasted only as long as the first one that died...less than a month. Nine months ago we bought 3 iphone 5's and 2 iPads. None of those chargers work. I have HAD to buy chargers that were not certified because, really, who in their right mind would pay $30 for something that is designed to break (as evidenced by my "Box-O'-Apple-FAIL")? It has to be one of two reasons. 1. They are purposely making faulty equipment. 2. They literally CAN'T figure out how to make a charger! The "plug in, turn off, turn back on" didn't work. I'm hoping somebody has figured this out. If not... well played Apple, for fixing it so I have a box of crappy certified chargers and now a box of ones that you made sure I can't use and no Apple store within 120 miles!
my phone vibrates and sings out the alert tone for messages even when i'm on a line, talking. its quite annoying as u get continous beeps and ding dings when talking to your boss. is it a regular problem or with just mine? tried restoring, software update. its the same from the time its bought. phone: iphone 5
So I got my brand new 5S, all nice and stunning. But, theres always a problem with factory first line phones. Whenever I use my phone, doing ANYTHING (like using Reeder 2 or just browing offline content in safari reading list my iphone gets extremely hot. I mean extremely by you almost cannot hold it. I used to have to 4, 4S, 5 and they did not have this problem, I had issues sometimes with them but a clear install(DFU) usually helps and solves everything. I was wondering that it might be the 4G connectivity, but not. As I mentioned, even if I use the phone in airplane mode(mornings) it gets very VERY hot! I think there must be some problems with power amplifying as the normal 5 I had before, got very hot sometimes, but I was able to hold it still and it only got hot if I played graphic intense games. Apart from that, I claim 2-3 hours of usage battery life with no problem of stand-by time. So if I do not unlock the phone, it gets very cold and nice. But just after I unlock the phone, it starts to boil actually. I think there must be problem with the CPU as it must be running at max clock speed rather than as it should decrease a bit if theres "nothing to do". I did try turning off GPS, 4G, even 3G. No help at all, even if I use it in airplane mode and only on wifi (nights), it gets hot. I really not sure what to do with it, I dont want to bring it back to my carrier as they would take it and I would get it back in weeks time, as 5S's are very rare these days. Any suggestions? I am a geek and I could spell iOS word-by-word (I know the system VERY VERY well). So please, no common suggestions, only the ones I might not be aware of.
I changed the text tone for a specific contact, but i'm still getting the default text tone.
since downloading IOS 7 on my iphone 4S the ring tone has disappeared ...can anyone help???
This query is for my wife's phone as I have a Blackberry which works perfectly When she makes or receives a call the volume is very low. Switching to headphones or speaker however and the volume is fine (too loud at max volume!). I have cleaned the silver mesh that houses the speaker and adjusting the side buttons does not help (ie they are on maximum). I have also gone into settings but although the tone button is at max there does not seem to be an adjustment for call volume (apart from the buttons on the side of course). Is the speaker faulty or is there another fix? And yes I have removed the plastic cover…
Apple this is a heads up to you..I have been listening to pandora for a year now.I have a 5s connected to my home receiver..Today I switched to iTunes Radio instead and here's my opinion1.the stations I created played music from a different genre...I created a jazz station and iTunes Radio was playing country.NOT GOOD2.the sound quality wasn't good at all... I'm listening to pandora now..
When you turn your phone on and off silent at the side I tried turning it on and turn the ringer volume up but it said that I had headphones in so it won't ring or play any media it only plays it I put my head phones in I check to see of it was the speakers by changing my ringtone on settings but it worked and played fine it's just that my problem is it won't come on loud and it says I have headphones plugged in?
Hy Guys,(Sorry for my bad english).I used to play lot of musical clip videos on iphone 4S ios 6.1.3, and i played them in panoramic mode. Since i install ios 7 it just possible to play in very small view with buttons. When i turn the iphone i've got the coverflow with all albums instead.Is it the same for every one? Could we retrieve this function?
Please HELP! I have two iphone 5's and am able to transfer a ring tone from my itunes account to one iphone but not the other even though they are on the same account.
I have an iphone 5 with ios7 my phone is not on silent and I have a message tone but phone will not make sound when playing music or message time but will ring with text help me please
I'm kind of curious. I have bought an iphone 5S on 21st September and noticed that the loudspeaker produce different sound to the iphone 5. The iphone 5S loudspeaker seems to have better bass than the iphone 5. I played the same exact song synced on both phones, but the sounds they produced are not the same. The 5S has much more bass sound than the 5. Also, the intrument sounds on 5S are much stronger than the 5. I can hear much more details of the instruments in iphone 5S. One thing I suspicious about is that some apps I used on the iphone 5S produce pretty bad sound. For example, when I sent a message on Whatapps, you would normally hear the sound like soft pop, but on 5S you will hear the squeaky pop instead. This is kind of annoying to me. I wonderded my loudspeaker is a defect or that the sound quality of the pop sound in Whatsapp is bad. Please advise. Thanks.
OK. There is a weird glitch in the Music app, when accessed via the Home button after putting the phone to sleep and coming back. So you listen to Music through the headphone, and then you quit. Pull out the phone from the jack, the app has stopped, you go do some other stuff, and a couple hours later you decide to plug the headphones in, and then you click on the Home button. You expect to flick up (because the double click thing to pull up the Play button no longer exists) - so pull up on the new fangled window with all the basic stuff which includes the Music app, along with Bluetooth, Wifi, Flashlight, etc etc, you know that page called Control Center. And, for some reason, the song you last played isn't there. No song is there. So you press Play anyway - and it starts playing some random song. It hasn't remembered the last song you played. Has this happened to you? What is this glitch and can somebody fix it ASAP, because it's seriously annoying to be surprised when this happens. Unless, somebody has an explanation as to why this is happening? iOS7iPhone 4S.
I upgraded my 4s to ios7 the other day, now when ever my wife sends a text to me the text also goes back to here iphone 4. I upgraded her iphone 4 to ios7 to see if that would fix the problem. It didn't! I also found that when I upgraded my 4s it added an icloud account for me against my will (I had answered that I did not want an icloud account). I deleted the icloud account and I still have the same problem. It is really annoying for my wife. every time she sends me a text it still sends it to her also (a popup with reply or close and it plays my text tone making her think that I sent a meesage to her also). Is there any fix for this or should I just go back to ios6 or maybe get a new android phone (probably comes with it's own set of issues). I have noticed the trend with apple and other technology companies to make newer versions more trouble than the are worth lately. Marketing people should not be allowed to have input on design.
Help guys! I just updated my phone last night and it is now stuck in the connect to itune page.Even after connectting it to the computer, it was not detected by my computer.When i plug it it, there is a tone from my computer that indicate a connection but my phone are not shown in itune or even my computer. I tried restarting,reinstalling itune, reinstalling apple mobile device but to no avail. any other suggestions?? Please help me!!

Hi all,I have the following problem after upgrading to iOS7 on my iphone 4S. When I make a call and the person on the other side answer and I start tallking, iphone still play the calling tone, the same tone it play before the the person on the other side answer the call. So for example: I call my husband, iphone play the "calling sound", my husband answer the call and we start talking, I still hear the "calling tone". Any ideas? Thanks Kind Regards Daniela
After recently updating to the IOS 7 several days ago, I decided to buy a ringtone. The problem is, it will not show up under my "ringtone" and "text tone" settings. It does show up in my library, and as a tone on my iphone (iTunes says anyways) but all it shows is the defaults that came with the new update. I did sync several times, and nothing has worked. I have an iphone 4S. Does anyone have the same issue, and know how to fix it? Thanks!
In iOS 6 there was an option to select custom-made ringtones but this option seems to have disappeared with the new operating system. Is this option even available and hidden somewhere or is it gone for good?
Hi, everyone.My iphone 4 suddenly got a problem. When I call or answer a phone call, I can't hear no ring tone or any sound. Only I can hear with speaker on. Do anyone have any idea how to fix it? Thanks a lot
This has happned twice already on different occassions. The last time was a few months back. I am able to make one call that day, which is usually in the morning. Then the next few hours, like 5-6 hrs I cannot make any calls/receive calls/text messages, etc. I have perfect bar signal, it shows 5 bars, but I cannot make a call. The call shows "calling" and there is no tone, less than a minutes goes by, the call disconnects/stops the attempt and shows a screen "call back." with "call failed" on screen. I am not sure what the problem is, but verizon cannot help since I have perfect signal. Thanks.
When I make an outgoing call there is no ringing tone for the person I am calling. When the call connects, the person I am calling can hear me but I can't hear them. Any ideas?
I tried restoring many times, I even did the headphone trick by plugging and unplugging it into the headphone jack and it did nothing.Viber, Skype (Voice Call) works perfectly.But when someone is calling me it will normaly ring and I hear the ring tone but when I took the call and the call is connected I cant hear them and they cant hear me also.I also tried other sims and nothings happen.Please help!
i don't know how i can get help with this problem- certainly not from the developer, their answer is "we tested it and it works". Thaaaanks. Anyway, the issue is that uniqlock (which i love), used to work great but now the music dies every couple of segments. If you're not familiar with it, it alternates between a sliding clock, and girls dancing. I think the video and audio are cut up into 5 or 10 second chunks and then played randomly. Anyway, after i updated to ios 6.1.3, the music started cutting out for a few segments at a time. The ios update could be a coincidence, i'm not sure. So i tried contacting uniqlo and got a boilerplate "it works and we don't care just buy our clothes" answer. Then i tried deleting everything to do with uniqlock from my computer and from my phone. Synced, then re-downloaded the app, and.. same. After it downloads the first "season" of content, it does the same thing. Plays the first segment with video and audio, then the audio dies for a couple of segments, comes back eventually etc etc. I don't want to give up on this app, i really like it, but it's one of those ones (as are a disturbing number of apps) that you're kind of left on your own if something goes wrong. Does anyone have any ideas for me? My only thought is that i'm somehow not getting rid of everything before reinstalling it. Are there the equivalent of plist or pref files on my phone somewhere? If it's not something like that, then the app doesn't work with this ios version and the developer is full of schnitzel.
I downloaded a text tone from iTunes. Now I want to use it, but I can't see it in the Sounds menu on my iphone 4S.
When I play certain songs on my iphone 5, the audio will cut out partway through. The song will continue to play all the way through, but no audio. I play the song again and same thing. So it's not just a once in a while fluke. I've played the songs on iTunes on my iMac and the song plays fine. Anyone ever have this problem and know how to fix it? Thanks -dan
I am not getting any alert tone (voicemail, text, etc) when my iphone 5 is connected to my car's bluetooth. I do get the notification and the phone does vibrate, but there is no sound. Same is true for my wife who drives a different brand car. The strange thing is that if I am already on a phone call through the car's bluetooth and get a text while on the call, the alert tone does sound through the car's speakers. If anything, the tone should be silenced if a person is already on the phone as it causes a distraction during the conversation. But I would like to find out if there is any way to activate the alert sounds when the phone is connected through the car's bluetooth.
The iPod in my iphone 5 will not play songs that I purchased from iTunes-it used to play them-now it won't, it skips through half the songs in my library. This just started last week. Why!? Example-I bought Holy Grail, it played fine for the first few days, now it will skip straight through the song if I hit play on it, while under the songs tab. It does this with over a quarter of the music I have on my phone. It will also have the play button on, even if I have it off, for the song to pause. Please help!
Hi, I'm wondering if anyone else is having this issue or knows how to fix it... I just recently realized what a useful feature the "Recently played" playlist is on the iphone. But I'm having a problem where the most recently played songs aren't showing up. They were, but now they aren't. I was looking in the playlist tonight after playing a few songs. Everything matched up. I recognized the songs at the top of the playlist as the songs I'd most recently played in exactly the reverse order - so the playlist was working as it should. Then I played a few more songs, checked the playlist again, and none of those songs were listed. I tried playing a few more songs, checked the playlist, and once again the songs at the top were not the most recently played but the songs I had listened to earlier. In other words, the playlist had not been modified at all. Is this some kind of glitch? Is there a delay of minutes or hours before recently played songs eventually show up in that playlist? If anyone has any insight into this that would be fantastic. Thanks
Hi, Any idea waht I can do to enable my 4S to ring when receiving calls? I think it's set up correctly and I tested the ring tone settings and it makes sound, the button on the side is set so I can see the "red" color, the Riner is set to Maximum.. I'm not sure what else I need to do. Please advise?! Thanks!.
I have an iphone 4s and for some reason whenever I recieve a text message it won't show up in the lock screen. And as far as I can tell other notifications aren't showing up either. And when I get a text message the notification tone goes off twice even though I have it set for once. Help?
I have my iphone 4s and there is no volume bar when i press the - & + button i cant hear message tone, music and other appsbut other than that it works,
