Recently, I just sold my ipad fourth generation. I know stupid mistake, but while the ipad was in my posession, I subscribed and downloaded three different subscriptions: TIME, Newsweek, and Game Informer. At the time, I had mistakingly thought that all newsstand apps were cross compatible between the ipad and iphones. IS THERE ANY POSSIBLE WAY TO BE ABLE TO USE THESE MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTIONS? either by .pdf back up, or maybe by the real issues. I paid the company to see their product, the magazine, not apple. It doesnt seem fair that ive paid for the magazines but now have no way to even view them without an ipad. does anyone have any clues as to what i can do to possibly be able to recieve my magazines that i rightly paid for? like i said maybe a back up, an app that will make them available, maybe a web site or a reader that i can use to view them. It just does not seem right that a paid magazine subscription is only viewable on an ipad, when the iphones also have newsstand. There has to be SOMEWAY to get my magazines....please please please please help me...the person who actually purchased the subscriptions is no longer with me, so being able to read them also has a sentimental value. please please please will someone help me
i have backed up my iphone but do not see my pictures on itunes
After recently downgrading from iOS 7 back to iOS 6.1.4 on my iphone whenever I go into the App Store to redownload my apps it only gives me the option "open" but I don't have the apps, therefore I don't HAve the app to open. Please help
view only works in one direction,will not change when I turn the phone
when looking at the history in settings under advanced is everything that shows up from what has been viewed on that phone? can sites show up just because or is it pretty accurate history of what's being viewed? also is there a way to see the date it was viewed?
when I plug my 4S into my computer to charge it, it automatically opens MS Word and then shows me another window with my picture in it. How can I turn that off, or what is causing that to happen? Thanks
Why does my iphone volume ringer icon come on by itself, the volume gets turned down on its own then the icon stays on and blocks my view. It also will at any time make any screen switch to large pictures that I can only see a small portion of screen at a time. I have tried too tap screen to make it go back to normal and nothing happens. I then try to turn it off. After several tries I am successful Its hard slide power off button because only a small section is showing. What is happening? How do I fix this?
This whole problem started when I first got my iphone 5 around christmas time of last year. And i did the normal activation of my new iphone and syncing my old iphone 4 with this new phone. I synced everything and it was all good, but i started to get these random text from people in my message log. I soon found out that i was recieving every text that was sent to my sister. And if i replied to someone who was texting my sister it would show up like she texted them, not me on a seperate number. Also when i text my sister she would get the text but immidiatly after i sent her it, i would also get a text from myself saying what i sent her. I will literally get a text message from my own number to myself, (weird ****). So its like my sisters text messaging is fused with mine. Its only messages though, no images or anything else. In the beginging i didnt care about this becasue she wasnt recieving my text i was only getting hers. But now just today she tells me she is getting my text too. And thats a problem! This problem lasted all the way up to about 2 months ago and then i stopped getting her messages. But i gave one of my friends my old iphone 4 and once they activated it for there own use it started to happen again. They use a seperate plan then i do and there number on the phone is different. Before i gave them the phone i wiped everything off of it. i took off the contacts, messages, everything. They use a different apple account and icloud account now on the phone. So idk why it started up again i need help. Here is some background. My whole family shares the same apple account with everything. We have seperate phones, numbers and data for the most part. But with dealing with Icloud and itunes anything like that, we use the same account. My sister uses a iphone 4s btw. with my old iphone 4 i had no probelms with this, everything was normal. But once i switched to the new iphone 5 this problem has occured. Idk what this is about, i havent heard anyone else with this problem, but i need help! btw my other family members on their phones do not have this problem. So i think it has to do something with the icloud but im not sure! This is a serious problem and i need help! Goodluck!

my iphone5 has been stolen..my IMEI ********** shows has been replaced...so can you give me the new IMEI NUMBER??i have the case and the invoice..have no idea how the apple store can change him a new one!!!! <Edited by Host>
I recently updated my iphone 4 to iOS 6.1.3 and am now unable to view apps on the App Store. It tells me it's has too many http redirects.
My girlfriend recently broke her iphone 4 and had to get a new phone -- ever since she got a new phone, my iphone 4S is missing hundreds of texts from her. The last text my phone shows from her is from over two months ago. At first I thought that only the iMessages were missing, but we have exchanged hundreds of SMS and iMessages in the last few months and they are all missing. After she broke her phone there were a few days she texted me via iMessages on her iMac -- and those texts are all missing too, iMessages on her computer is also totally messed up. I can understand why she would be missing a few messages on her new phone since she hasn't backed her phone up in a few weeks, and using iMessages between multiple devices is still glitchty -- but why did my girlfriend getting a new phone cause hundreds of texts to be deleted off of my phone? Currently running iOS 4.1.2 on iphone 4S
I have an iphone 4S and my voulme just randomly stopped working. I checked my settings again and it only makes sounds when someone calls my cell. when I try to see what level the ringer is on it shows no bars or anything. Any ideas, I tried restarting it. Nothing works just happened randomly today. Any advise?
My iphone 5 doesnt want to charge. I plug it into the outlet or on my laptop but still doesnt charge. It shows the screen that it is charging but it stays like that for hours but still doesnt work. I have dropped it a couple of times when i first got it but it has been about three weeks since i have last dropped it. i sort of figured if it was because i dropped it, it would have stopped working that same week or so.
Hopefully someone here can help me... My iCloud always shows my backup as being 4.8GB, even with EVERYTHING turned off. After downloading iOS 7 I figured out the problem: I have 4.8 GB of "Messages (Saved)". This is even after deleting ALL my messages. I'm not sure what this could be. I tried PhoneCleaner, i FunBox, and everything else I can find, but I can't find a way to access or view these messages to delete them. Could someone help me? I can't back anything up to iCloud with it like this.Note: this was happening even before i upgraded to iOS 7.
I am unable to hear any sound through phone receiver. I can hear through spaeker and headphone of the phone. The model is 4S and OS is updated to leatest version 6.1.3. when i press the volume button it shows headphone within brackets. what should i do to hear from phone receiver?RVSM
ok so i just woke up and turned on my phone and everything i went downstairs playing some music and my iphone just turned offit had 97 percent battery and just turned off i tried waiting and letting the barrty die and then recharging but still no progress i tried going on my laptop and plugging in the iphone but it wont reconize my iphone. my iphone wont charge at all and shows no life within the phone at all i tried other peopels cords but no progress i was wondering if you guys could hlep me out?
Hello, I just replaced my 4S's display, and after reassembly the iphone powered on as normal, but - there is no sound, mic or vibration what so ever. It doesn't detect a headphone jack either. The mute button and volume buttons work just fine, volume control shows up but there is no vibrate or sound at all. So this basically makes it useless as a phone ... Anyone know what could be causing the issue? I tightened the screws, tried reconnecting the cables and the speakers. Hoping this is not an issue with the audio IC. Definately not software related, tried full DFU restore, tried cleaning the dock connector and jack, the iphone is NOT stuck in dock connector mode. TL;DR: No sound from any speaker, no vibrate what so ever, no mic, doesn't detect headphone jack. Anyone know what's wrong? Could it be a damaged Audio IC (don't really see how this can happen)? Broken flex cable?
I have had my iphone 4 for 6 months now, and I have dropped it a couple of times, but a few days after I dropped it nothing happened. My first problem started in May when I noticed that my phone could not reach the wifi at home or other places quickly as it normally could and when I would go into other rooms I would lose the connection quickly.This made me have to use my 3g more often and I only have a limit of 300MB, I normally do not use it, because of the wifi i have around,but it is getting harder. 2-3 days ago I called the DATA (*3282#) in my phone and got 64.89 out of 300MB. I later used my 3G for awhile, so a day later i called DATA and the same number (64.89 out of 300MB) comes on again. I knew this was a mistake so I called it again and the same number shows up. I KNOW FOR SURE I USED MY 3G, so I dont know why this keeps popping up. Everything else channged (texting and calling) On top of that my vibration started to not work in early June and it's difficult for me to know when someone has texted or called. I have tried going into settings and choosing a different type of vibration, but it does not vibrate overall and yes it is turned on. My version right now is 6.1. Will upgrading help? Everything else works fine, but is there a way I can fix this or do I have to go the Apple Store? I'm also in AT&T.
Hi all, i will list my problems and see what you all think,,,,, i have a iphone 4s on vodafone running 6.1.3 firmware, for the first 11/12mths i would say this phone was faultless ( taking around 200 calls a day), recently the phone refuses to make calls and send txt messages, it wont even connect to the internet using 3g, it has to have wirelesss connectivity for the browsers to work. i took it to the local vodafone shop and they insisted it was the sim card at fault, even though i did try it in my other phone (nokia E50-2), so i took the replacement sim anyway. checks already done:- i have taken my vodafone contract sim from the iphone and placed it in the nokia, it works fine sending and recieving both calls and txti have taken my vodafone PAYG sim out of the nokia and placed it in the iphone, it refused to work but worked fine in the nokiai have reset the network settings, i have deleted all apps from the iphone and done a full restore, but it still refuses to workit shows full signal strength all the time where i live, as does the nokia, if i try to call it from the nokia it tells me the phone is not available even though they are sat side by side with full signal, if i try to call the nokia it comes back called failed.i have tried to send a txt message to my own phone number only for it to come back failed, yet in the nokia it sends no problem.vodafone refuse to admit it is a problem with there network and it is an iphone issue, the phone is now 13mths old and out of warranty (typical), i requested the iphone be unlocked from vodafone to check other networks, this has now been done so i put a spare O2 sim in the iphone and it sends and recieves both calls and text with no issues, yet vodafone still say it is not a network problem!!!!!!! is anyone else having similar problems to mine??? or is it something wrong with the phone???? i personnaly think when the phone was updated to the 6.1.3 firmware it has a problem with vodafone, plese tell me what you think, i am going crazy with this phone, cant believe its not kissed the wall or other hard surface yet.
Hi I don't have question but it for help apple. I love too much your product and I want help you because I am not sure if you know but iOS 7 is perfect but the icons are not very professional and look weird. So it all I want to say and I cross my fingers for you see this and try to repair your error.
Hi everyone, I have an interesting situation going on here. Today, I had my iphone replaced due to an issue at the Apple store in Las Vegas. I have an iPad in addition to my iphone. Prior to the replacement, my iPad and iphone were fully synced in iMessage. Now, however, after setting this up again, I have lost all of my messages on my iphone. They are still, however, in my iPad. How can I get them to sync back with my iphone? I also had my iphone replaced once before, and I believe it synced right back and I didn't have this problem then (although I didn't have the iPad with me at the time, so that is weird); I don't remember how I did it though. Hoping to get some help with this, thanks in advance!
My Notification Center isn't showing anything. when my phone is locked, it doesn't show when I get a text. Only when I open my phone do I see that I have multiple texts, but it never vibrated for them. I went to my settings, and went under Notification Center, and it just shows the little "loading" symbol, but it won't open up the settings. when I swipe down my Notification Center, it only says "No New Notifications". I can't figure out why it's doing this. Could it be because I don't have good signal or something? I can't turn my phone off and back on because for some reason my button won't work. Someone please help!
Hello. First: I apologize for my poor English. I have a problem : when I work to restore through iTunes to process And shows me an error (-1). As well Please help me
Hi Everyone! I have a brand new iphone 5 (white if it matters) It has never been dropped, exposed to water or anything. Like I said it is brand new. I have probably only had it for a week or two now. when i lightly press the screen it is like the LED's behind the screen are being squished. (Same situation as listed below [link] except my screen is brand new and has NEVER been replaced.) Should I take it to Apple or can I fix it at home. Also my Dad said I only get one iphone and I don't get a replacement so will it be free to replace if I have to? Thanks In Advanced David This is the link to the similar problem except it ishttp://www.ifixit.com/Answers/view/105184/iphone+4+screen+is+very+sensitive+to+p resure+after+a+replacement
I have been having problems with my iphone turning off at anywhere from 80-100%, in fact I haven't seen it anywhere near 50%or less in about 2-3 months. Sometimes it would turn back on if I press the power button or home and power button, and would show the same battery % as when it shut off, but would die right away again till I charged it. Sometimes it wouldn't come back on till I put it on the charger. Last night I took it off the charger when it was 100% and went to use an app right awayand it died still at 100%. I put it right back on the charger and expected it to turn right back on or at least turn on in 15-20 min. It has been on the charger sonce last night and still has not come back on, and yes it shows the lightning bolt like it does whenever it is charging, and shows no battery power. I have tried pressing the power button both on and off the charger, tried pressing the home and power button for 15 seconds, and even tried longer both off and on the charger, I have tried changing cords and the adapter, and different outlets, I have tried plugging it into the computer and it again shows the lightning bolt and low battery thing and itunes and the computer doesn't even acknowledge that it is plugged in. I'm confused as to what else I can try. Of course it dies after 1 year warranty is over.
I need help, my just turned itself off and now it won't turn on. I just don't know what to do? One moment it was on and then it just went dead. Please someone tell me what to do? I tried syncing it with Itune but my laptop won't recognise it. I haven't plugged with the charger but I doubt that will help. It was acting a bit weird before it turned off, like the applications kept on minimizing on there own and stuff. I had also accidently turned on guided assistence and forgot the passcode but after a bazillion tried I managed to put in the right code and I had hotspot on for a long period of time. Please anyone help me
iphone 5 wont charge.I tried to the wall and the pc but still do nothing.The battery was showing that it was charging,until it was empty full and never started again.Pleace help
My iphone 4S shuts down while taking pictures and video when power is lower than 40%, says there is no battery left. when phone is plugged in it turns on and shows what % is left, yesterday it happened and it came back on at 41%.
My iphone 5 has 9%battery life left and keeps turning itself off. If in leave it 5 mins it turns back on fine. 4 seconds after putting in my pin it turns off again.It's been turning off at 9% for a few months but not to this extent.It also has tendencies to go from 14% straight down to 1% just from sending a text message. But after turning it back on it shows as having 9%. Does anyone have any suggestions other than getting it checked at apply which I intend to or throwing it against a wall?
Hi there, something weird happened to me and I don't know how to fix this... Now I have about 300 Facebook friends and since the iOS update I have had my facebook friends appear in contacts and I merged the contact in my phone with the contact on Facebook so obv I have it all merged into one, with updated profile pic of fb and link to there facebook all into one neat and tidy Well for some reason and out the ordinary it has just disappeared, all the fb contacts have gone, when I untick the iCloud box on contacts and just the Facebook box when I go into groups only like a handful of fb contacts are actually there....I've tried unchecking the box in preferences and uninstalling the fb app itself to get these all back and pressing update all contacts in settings too and even though I have like 300+ fb it just says updated 16 or something ridiculous.. Anyways really hope someone can help! Cheers

Hello everyone, I'd like to know if it is possible to VNC from my iphone/ipad to my macbook without wifi? I use real VNC viewer to access my Macbook (which has Real VNC Enterprise Server installed) using my iphone/ipad and it works well when I have Internet. However, I'd also like to be able to control my mac from my iphone in the same fashion when I do not have access to WIFI or wired Internet. I have scoured the net for answers and while there are plenty of links for controlling your iDevice from your Mac, there is seemingly nothing out there that shows you how to do the reverse in the absence of Wifi. I have read about SSH tunneling via a tethered USB connection but have not found any comprehensive instructions as to whether such a method would work to control my Macbook with my iphone/iPad. I was hoping there would be devices such as receivers plugged into the USB port that would allow this sort of interaction when no Internet is available but haven't come across any. Does anyone know if this can be done? Thanks.
I just bought a 2nd iphone 5 as a back up just incase anything happens to my phone, however I tried it out, it wont switch to LTE only 3Gwhen you go to carrier options it only shows 3G. Is there something wrong with my phone?
My boyfriend is currenlty deployed overseas. when he calls using a calling card the number shows up as "unknown" caller on my phone but it does not ring. I can see him calling but my phone makes no noise.
I received an unlocked iphone 4s as a christmas gift from the US. (I live in the Philippines.) when I got it it was still in its original plastic and sealed. I have recently had trouble with it (Updated ios, got the battery glitch, did the forum repairs, got the recovery mode errors, did the Apple Support KB tips, got error 40 and 1601, now just want to wipe the phone completely.) and am trying to see if a repair is possible. 1) Philippine service centers won't touch it, because it is not an "in-country" purchased phone, and is out of warranty. That's fine, I get that.2) when going to the self-help site, there is an "IMEI checker" when trying to submit a ticket. I punched in the IMEI found on the outside of the box, and it shows that the phone has been replaced.3) It's never been replaced. Ever. I had never even brought it in for repair in any store, in any country, until yesterday, to an accredited shop. My questions are:1) Is it possible that this is an error?2) What possible recourses are there for me for repair? I'd like to avoid sending the brick back to the States and then pay a kidney for a repair/replace. (Might as well get another phone!)
So apparently I have terrible luck with Apple products. I've had to replace my iphone 5 3 times already. Gone through three phones within the same week. The one I have right now seems to be doing fine hardware wise as the lock button seems to work fine for now. But as I received the new iphone yesterday hoping all my troubles would be gone the phone shuts itself down after displaying a pattern of grey bars on the screen and then shows the Apple reboot logo for about 5 seconds before it slowly fades out and then tries to reboot again. Is this software related or do I have another hardware issue? I have restored it twice and it has happened both times. On a side note, the compass doesn't appear to work. It gets stuck on zero degrees and doesn't work at all on the Maps app or the Google Maps app. It is pretty cloudy here but usually when it's cloudy it shows some sort of response. This one shows none. Please, I just want a working phone.
After replacing front screen, my phone has been sporadically acting crazy. Programs open, multiple keystrokes, and keyboard letters do not "push"
I've had my iphone 4 for a year and a half not without any problems but my Maps app will not now display the Standard or Hybrid view. It affects other apps using Maps as well. The Satellite view on its own works okay. Bill
I bought a iphone 5 a week ago, I first was able to put my purchased items from the iTunes store directly to my phone. I tried to sync my phone to my computer and it put stuff from my old iphone to the new one. So i restore it and get it back to the factory settings that it was on, but when I tried to put music on it after I restored it back to the way it was, it won't let me put music on it. I later on clicked on my iphone and on the "on this iphone" tab, it says that I have the songs that I have been trying to put on it, on it. But the songs are grayed out.. SO WHAT DO I DO?
My iphone 5 on ios 6.1.2 shows Personal Hotspot is now discoverable, but it does not show up on my iPad 2 also on ios 6.1.2. I have previously used my iphone to share Internet to my iPad. This just happened out of nowhere. Help anyone?
why iOS 6.X does't have blacklist function? it's weird, that's should be one of the most important functinality in dailydoes anyone have workaround on this, without jailbreak.
I can't update any of my Applications (Free) from App Store on my iphone (4S, iOS 6.1.3) showing message "Sign-In Required" Tap continue and sign in to view billing information..
For the past two days while my phone is charging I have not been able to explain this and sound sane. If I touch the settings icon the camera will open up, if Safari is touched then settings opens, allowing no function be assigned to their icon and it's is really freagin weird. A few times I have tried to power off the phone but won't allow me to slide the power bar off. Holding down the power/homescreen button will restart the phone but right back to madness. Can anyone at all explain what the **** is going on with my phone?? I did notice it with a particular charger and close to 2 other laptops. Not sure, but with my boyfriend around I thought he was playing a joke on me since he is very computer literate but denies anything to do with this and from what I can tell by what I've read it could be the charger? I need to know cause it's not anything I wish to encounter again, If this had video I'd show you. possessed I swear!
Can anybody tell me how i can get the company name and person name to show when somebody rings me, at the moment i only get the persons name. Thanks in advance.
Can someone tell me what is the app Apple shows off right after they say the word "Rise" in the TV ad "Brilliant"?
I just bought an audibook off of itunes. It was my first purchase from the itunes store. I paid for it, downloaded it, synced it ot my iphone. The itunes library clearly showed the audiobook listed on my phone when I plug it into my computer. However, I can't figure out how to actually play the book on the phone. when I go to "audiobooks" on my itunes app is just brings up the store. when I got to "more > purchased" I get a list of music, movies, and tv shows which all ready as empty. when I refind the audibook in the store it lists it as "downloaded" but doesn't have anything on the page about actually accessing it.
I made the idiotic decision of microwaving my iphone 5 - only for four seconds, but nonetheless it has caused my phone to lose its wifi and phone service... it only shows "No Service" in the top left corner and I don't know what to do. I feel like a complete idiot for believing these stupid Internet rumors and my phone is literally my only working device. I don't know if I could afford a replacement or how to fix this. Please, can anybody at all help me?
I have a 2010 VW Jetta and had been using the bluetooth phone with no issues (iphone is 4S and car bluetooth is built into the rear view mirror assembly and not the steering wheel). I've updated iOS 6.1.3 and now my phone no longer pairs with the car's bluetooth system). I've erased/forgot any bluetooth devices from the car's system but that doesn't seem to help. Any help/suggestions/etc on what I need to do to get a feature that worked just fine working again... ? Since the only variable to my knowledge that has changed is the iphone operating system I tend to believe the issue is on Apple's end...
