I'm thinking about upgrading to the iphone 5 but I want to keep the gps locations where I take my photos (in the photos app, under places). Is there any way that I can transfer this information to an iphone 5?
I have downloaded ringtones, synced my iphone 5 to itunes, yet I still cannot scroll down to see file sharing. What else can I try so I can transfer ringtones to my iphone?
I recently replaced my iphone screen and afterwards I discovered that my camera roll had crashed. With it, I lost all of my pictures and videos. Luckily, I recovered them from a program that I had downloaded. However, the storage that used to take up my photos and videos on my phone had transfered to the "other" section on itunes. Is the only way to remove/decrease the storage of the "other" file by restoring your iphone? I don't want to restore my iphone because I am also having issues with backing up my phone. Whenever I try to back it up on itunes, it says "the backup was corrupt or not compatable with the iphone". My phone has never been backed up because of this issue, so if I were to restore my phone then all off my files would be deleted. I have tried reseting my phone, but the "other" section is unchanged. Is there anyway I can delete the corrupt files on my phone? I have tried removing all pictures, videos, apps, and music in an attempt to discover the source of the corrupt files but I haven't found them. Also, if I was to "restore backup" with my iphone from my ipad, would that mean losing my messages?
I don't know how to transfer my new app, that I have recently purchased in my computer (Macbook) to my iphone.
So i restored my iphone ,i lost everything ,luckily i have a back up file on my computer..my question to any willing to help is how i can place my back up on to my iTunes to then sync it with my iphone ?
I too have had the "flickering/flashing" screen problem...I received my first iphone 4 on release day (6/24); had no display issues until 3 days later, on 6/27. First occurred while on call in car; phone continued to work but display was black; had to do the two-button "hard restart" method to reboot phone. I was away on vacation for a week (not near an Apple Store), and phone continued to have this issue at least once/day. It could be on any screen or app...had it occur on calendar, a game, the home screen, etc. It would begin flashing ~8 times, then go to a "lit up black" (not off but slightly and evenly lit up black). Sometimes it would be 75% black, w/ a whiter "band" across the top 25% of the display.I discovered that sometimes if I quickly hit the button on top while it was still flashing, I could "save it."I have videoed this (using my 3GS phone...now my wife's) a few times, and it also did it at the Genius Bar at my local Apple Store last Friday (7/9) when I returned it. They saw it in-person, and watched one of my videos, and promptly gave me a replacement phone.However, the NEXT day, 7/10, my replacement iphone 4 has started to do a similar thing...no "flashing/flickering", just goes to the "lighter black" screen. First occurred when trying to open the calendar. I contacted Tech support and spoke to someone at Apple for ~1 hour, who said there have been NO reported display issues from others, and thought it perhaps was due to a corrupt "Restore from backup" file. She suggested that I do a regular restore (not from backup), but I have hesitated to do so yet, instead looking/waiting to see if others have had this issue, as I don't want to lose contact, texting & calendar info.She also said it was not good to perform the "hard restart" (two button) function very much... I eventually have tried the "slide to power off" across the top of the black screen, and phone turned off and could restart with just the single (upper) button. So the phone is ON...just display isn't...I am an AVID iphone user (have had the 2G, 3GS and now 4 model) for 2 1/2 years, and this won't make me "switch"...I just want it FIXED..!
can we get apple to make a fix to download that would enable the bluetooth file sharing with any deivce? i would like to to stay with Apple iphone but if they dont improve the lack of features.. i will move on and I know im not the only person to think like this. regardsgavin_p
Have G4, downloaded photos and videos to Windows 7 Ultimate PC. Photos and videos showed up in an iPod Photo Cache file with a Photo Database and .ithmb files. I am looking for a "reliable" .ithmb converter to jpg, and likewise for the video format. TY:)
Hi, I am hoping someone can help me as my wife's iphone completely froze up after synching with the latest version of iTunes. In the end, the only thing she could do was re-set the iphone, thereby of course losing everything. Reconnecting to her laptop restored music and most apps, it seems she has to re-download the other apps again direct to the phone. Now the problem is images. There is an ipod cache directory on the laptop Pictures directory, and in this are folders labelled F00, F01 etc.. and a "Photo Database" file. In each of the Fnn directories is a series of files, called Txxx.ithmb, each of which is about 1,500KB. Doing a backup from the laptop indicates there are about 2900 files overall.Altogether there is about 3GB in this folder, so it looks to be a lot of space. Pointing iTunes to the directory containing all this and synching, still results in zero images being found. She went to the local Apple store for help, to be told these are not the images, but then elsewhere I have read that these are the full files, and this proprietary format contains three different resolution images. If the images taken on the iphone are not here, where are they? Finally, how on earth do we convince iTunes to recognize these files and imporrt them again? Sorry to be thick but losing everything thanks to the latest iTunes was rather catastrophic! Any help/ideas/suggestions greatfully received... The photo files were a mix of photos taken on the iphone and images previously uploaded from the laptop. Cheers Chipontheroad
Please help- its my understanding that iphone stores where you have been (location history). When I was searching the Internet to see if I could access this info, I found Pete wardens iphone tracker download (I think it came out in April 2011), but then I read that apple fixed this problem of storing this info on your computer too, by releasing a software update shortly after. Is that correct? If I backup my iphone to computer will it have a file on there that stores the history of where I and my iphone have been? Or is this no longer the case? I desperately need a log with time stamps, I need to prove where I have been in the last week (marriage problems). If iphone only keeps this info on the phone now, can I access it somehow?Thanks for your help-Alisha
How do i transfer my photos on my phone to my computer
Hi all, yesterday I had two requirements from my iphone 4 and none of them was fulfilled, so I decided that this is my last Apple device. If any of you can change my mind, go ahead a try. 1st, I wanted to copy a file (pdf) from my local drive at home and then open it in ezPDF Reader. So I used NetPortalLite to access my drive and downloaded the file inside the NetPortalLite. But when I wanted to move the file to ezPDF app it didn't let. Why it is so complicated to move files between apps? I have tried to copy in NetPortalLite, then paste in ezPDF Reader... it didn't work! 2nd, I wanted to access my local drive at home to run a video file. This function is available only in paid apps, although other mobile OS have this ability. Why it is not possible to browse local drives directly from the iOS or Safari? Is it so hard to implement this function to the iOS and make it available by SMB://IP_ADDRESS or \IP_ADDRESS? 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
Okay so first my iphone 4s had a storage problem. So I bought an iphone 5 and restored my old settings to the iphone 5. Sadly that carried over the storage bug to my new phone. I went and reset all of the factory settings and started from scratch. I have now fixed my storage problem, but I made this a new iphone, and did not restore from a back up this time. I set it up with the same phone number of course, expecting it to take in my contacts from my cell phone number. I sync everything, and my contacts are there. But they aren't MY contacts....they're my mom's.... So how can I get rid of her contacts and import mine. I tried turning off iCloud contacts and deleting them, and turning it back on. But its the same. Help!?
My iphone went into recovery mode after updating!!! It's telling me to restore but I'll loose everything ive been trying to transfer! I can't loose these photos. Please tell me there's a way to fix it???

i have been using the same back up file for my phone's for the past four years and my iphone 5 started was all glitchy and i had over 10gb of other used up on phone so i restored it. before i restored it though i saved all of my pictures to a folder on my mac using image capture. now im wonder how to import the photos back into my camera roll, not another folder on my phone. so far i have tried using ieplorer and a couple of other programs like that but no luck. i have about 1,500 photos so i cant email all of them to myself and then save them all. all i want is all my photos back into my camera roll :/
I just downloaded the Find my iphone app to my Windows 7 PC. Where did it go and how do I launch it to locate my iphone 4? I see the file Find iphone 2.0.2.ipa in my Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Mobile Applications directory but nothing happens when I double click it.
Hi, i am trying to pair my 2 iphones both iphone 5 using bluetooth to enable file transfer between them.But when i turn on the bluetooth under Setting->Bluetooth. Both devices are unable to discover each other. Please help. Thanks
You are not addressing Apple here, we are users just like you. Also, not a good idea to put your personal number on the world wide forum here for anyone to get. The iphone has never supported bluetooth file transfer. This is a known fact. Check this support document for information on what bluetooth profiles the iphone does support. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3647
if you backup your phone to the computer where does the file go?
Okay. So this was what happened: I was updating my iTunes library to the latest version. All of a sudden, my netbook crashed and eventually was hanging. So I removed the battery and restarted my netbook. I later found out, my iTunes got deleted. I didnt panic at first since I deliberately deleted my iTunes before and reinstalled it again finding all my files back in the iTunes. But this time, when I reinstalled it, all my files were gone! With this situation, can I transfer all my current files from my iphone to my new iTunes library? I don't mind losing my music but I just want to safely sync my iphone to this new iTunes library without erasing my current apps and photos. Hope you guys can help me!

Is there any way to recover all deleted pictures? thanks for your support!iphone 5, iOS 6.1.2
My 16 GB iphone is just too darn small to hold what I need it to hold. I'm considering buying a used 64GB phone from a coworker, but I'm wondering what will happen to my AppleCare plan. Will it transfer to the other phone? If not, will I be refunded the unused balance?Do I just lose it?Can I pay a fee to transfer the plan to the new(used) iphone?
The option to update without the computer (Over the air) was made available with iOS 5. If your iDevice is using a version of iOS lower than 5, you will need to use iTunes on your syncing computer to perform the upgrade. Use the Apple link below as a guide for the upgrade. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4972 Also read the instructions from the section entitled "Update your device using iTunes" at the link below. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4623
Hey all. I've downloaded the app VPN Fife to my iphone 5 from a friends appartment, on their VPN. Works great. So, I want to sync to my Macbook pro, thinking it would just transfer over via the sync. It won't, not sure it even sees in on my phone. How do I get this copied over to my iTunes on my laptop. I'd like to sync it to my iPad now too.
I have just upgraded to an iphone 5. I have the apps puchased list which i have used. But my games have been lost even though the app is there. I dont really know how to solve this can anyone help or suggest an answer ? I have spent money on some of these apps so im very dissapointed :-(

Non the messages tone, sound on videos, music, keyboard clicks or the block/unblock sounds are available. I been told that the porblem is caused by an error on a file named: com.apple.iapd.plist is there a way to fix or repair this file? I will appreciate any help you can provide.
Hello! I have had issues with my iphone 4S since the day I got it. I have been to the apple store more times than I can count and every time it's some stupid excuse or half assed attempt to fix my phone. Well now I am out of warranty and they told me there is nothing they can do. I have all kinds of problems, from battery issues to apps not working to the screen freezing on me, etc. Every time I go they tell me it's an issue with the software and reset my phone to factory settings. I set up the phone as new and then bring over a small amount of pics, music files and apps. I never restore from back up. The most current issue is the phone drains to 1% battery and when I plug it in to charge, it acknowledges the charger but won't charge. The phone then dies and I am unable to turn it on for at least 48 hours. This has happened twice now. Apple ran diagnostics and said everything was fine and it was probably a corrupt file. We again reset it to factory settings and I was instructed to not bring over any files. I then used the phone for one day and it happened again. I also have not been able to back up to iCloud since I got the phone. The backup always fails. I am desperate at this point and apple will not replace the phone because it is out of warranty. I never had issues backing up to iCloud or with my files on my iphone 4. My husband plugs his phone into the same computer and has no issues with a corrupt file. Any thoughts or suggestions on what I should do?

I've ios 5.1.1 on my ios and i want to update to 6.1.2 not 6.1.3 ive downloaded the 6.1.2 file but for some reason i keep getting (3194) error.. what do I do?
I am trying to transfer/merge data from my one iphone to another iphone(both have important files). I don't want data from either erased. how do i do this???? the old iphone is a 3gs. i want to take the data from this to a iphone 4s.
I googled to no end, searched Apple support forums endlessly and you know what? Not a single simple answer can seem to be given without being redirected to something that simply does not answer THIS very specific question. Is it, or is it not possible to quickly transfer photos DIRECTLY *FROM* and *INTO* the Camera Roll WITHOUT iTunes or iPhoto? Simple question yes? lol. NOPE. Reason why I ask can be simply described in short: iTunes 11.0.2, running iphone iOS 6.1; Clicking "Photos" from my iphone via iTunes, gives me ONE single option; "Sync photos from". Tried keeping it real simple. Make a folder on the desktop called iphone Photos just for quickly transfering photos back and forth and chose to synch from that. 18 photos to test. Just crap from the internet. Nothing major. Know what it does? For one, it takes 3 minutes or so to sync 18 whole photos, which is stupid but whatever. But here's the BEST part, none get sent to my Camera Roll, oh no, it makes TWO entirely new folders under it in my iphone. One being the one I made on my desktop, and the other is called Photo Library, and get this, BOTH of these have the same 18 pictures lmao. Yup. Why? Oh who cares at this point. I really just do not care. Apple. All that needs to be said. And as for iPhoto. It's just an unnecessary useless program I have no intentions of ever needing. Why? I keep a crap load of various types of photos in organized folders in my Finder, and iPhoto likes making sure it takes 3x longer to do that. It really just does. Now back on point. What happened to the good old friggin days when all you had to do was DRAG AND DROP?!?!?! I legitimately am getting cancer from pondering this question. Is there not a way to simply drag from Camera Roll somehow to the iMac, like say a specified folder. And Vice Versa from the iMac straight to Camera Roll? A nice workaround to get FROM Camera Roll TO iMac specified folder is "Image Capture" which does exactly just THAT. Quickly and painlessly transfer STRAIGHT FROM AND TO wherever. This is ridiculous. At this point, I'd pay 50 bucks for a simple app to quickly drag and drop from and to Camera Roll and bam. Done. Sorry for the book, but this is getting ******** trying to get an answer to this and thought I would deem it necessary to be as descriptive as humanly possible. Looking for simple answers if possible, but at least descriptive. Thanks.
Hi, I have backed up my iphone 4 to my computer and tried to restore my back up to my iphone 5. I got all the data except application. Can anyone help me how can I get application to my iphone 5. Thanks
I have a laptop with Windows 7 with current version of ITunes 18.104.22.168 and have the iphone 4S with the current iOS 6.1.3 Itunes is seeing my iphone, but the laptop is not seeing it properly. Once the iphone is connected it will charge and connect to ITunes, but Windows doesn't show the device as having the proper driver. In "Hardware" setting of the laptop, the iphone doesn't show up so I can not make the iphone to show up in My Computer as a hard drive device. My reason to get this to work is to remove the videos from my phone. I have tried to use ICloud to transfer to other devices and download, but it won't accept videos just my computers. I need assistance to get the iphone to show up as a hard drive, but as previously mentioned the problem lays with the laptop not having the proper driver. I have done the following corrective measures: Uninstall and reinstalled ITunesI have held the powere and home button on the iphone while being connected to the laptop.I have looked into registry correction, but the incorrect text is not in the registry. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to lose these videos because non compatibility issues. If this is going to be on going occurrence I will have to give up using Apple products. Thank you.
Hi all. I want to unlock my iphone 4 from Vodafone (I'm out of contract and the phone won't work with SIM cards from other carriers). It's a replacement/refurb as my original phone died. Vodafone say they don't have the IMEI on file to authorise the unlock and need to request it to be transferred from Apple (which takes 5 working days). Is this right? Is there any way Apple can speed up the process for me?
Not following you there, sorry. My ID is the same, only the store is different now, Canada not UK.
I have a new computer, how can I transfer all my apps and music from my iphone5 to this new computer?
Hola. Tenía un 4S con el problema de error en llamada. 1 de cada 5 llamadas se cortaban, y aparecía el error "Error en llamada", habiendo cobertura perfecta. Llegué incluso a cambiar el teléfono en apple y el error persistía. Desde Apple me indicaron que saben que el error lo provoca alguna aplicación instalada pero no han identificado cual.Como la respuesta fue rara pensé que era una excusa. Ahora he adquirido un iphone 5 e iba perfectamente hasta que le transferí todas las aplicaciones que tenía instaladas en el 4S mediante iTunes. Y sorpresa, ahora vuelve a dar el "Error en llamada" en el iphone 5. Lamentable que no saquen una solución a este problema, pues no tengo yo por que estar probando que app es la que provoca el error de las decenas que tengo instaladas. Estoy muy descontento con Apple .

I switched from an iphone 4S to a 5 yesterday. My contacts did not all switch. The volume keeps resetting to the lowest amount. When I set the volume to high, it does not set Siri's to high. I can barely hear Siri. I used ITUNES for a backup on my 4S. Most of my apps wouldn't transfer, it said not enough room. All my songs are greyed out and not playable. I am using the same ITUNES account. This is a NIGHTMARE. All my email settings will not stay. The programs keep asking for the passwords, even though they have been entered multiple times. I read the email, then the next time I open the email account it prompts for a password. I HATE THIS PHONE.
My wife needed to make space on her iphone because of the many videos she had on it. When she plugged the phone into our iMac, running 10.8.3, and connected to iPhoto to transfer the videos over the upload started as it normally does. However, during the middle of the transfer iTunes interupted and INFORMED my wife that the phone was now upgrading to the newest software version (6.1.3)being as we usually keep our phones up to date with upgrades anyways we didnt think much of it. Unfortunately during this process the software update failed and the phone crashed. We were left with two options "restore from backup" or "restore iphone." We tried several times to restore from the backup and we received the same error message every time "iTunes could not restore the iphone because the backup was corrupt or incompatable with the iphone that is being restored." I went into my library and checked out my backups folder and I saw that there were two new backups there for my Wife's phone. One time stamped at the exact time the phone crashed and one from the last time I tried to restore(after the phone crashed). We finally decided that there must have been a glich with the softwarre download, since it didn't complete, so we decided to "Restore iphone" hoping that a corrected software would then allow us to restore from the backup properly. So the phone was wiped and reset with the new software, and we still cannot access the backup that we need. Though it is extremely frustrating that the videos of our toddler are gone, it is very important that we somehow find a way to access the information in the non corrupt backup files, her address and phone books as well as past text messages and calendars. I went to a site called iphonerecoveryonline and followed their protocol and I was able to see that all of the aboved mentioned information is still in those backups, but I have no way, with out paying these people $20 per file, to return that info to her phone. I would rather not have to pay to recover this info, but I guess that may be my only option? Any advice, experience or reccomendations would be greatly appreciated.
I have bough Lexus LS 430 2004 and i can use my bluetooth fine with iphone 5 . But i can not transfer my phone book to my car is there any upgrades to iphone to enable tranfering of my phone book .I used to have BMW 745 and it used to work fine with iphone 5 thank you
