Hi, Let me start with the link where I compare 2 iphone 5. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjcbIg3E3n8 For me its a pretty annoying rattling the vibrator emits. Is that normal or? I have compared it with to a few demo phone from different stores, and some friends, and my iphone is the loudest. Anyone else got this problem? The store where I bought it, says it is "normal" that it has to be loud....
I have lost my built in apps and do not know how to reinstall them on my phone. The Safari and App Store icons are gone. I can no longer surf the net on my phone and the little "microphone" key has also disappeared when I send text messages etc. I now have to actually type the message instead of speaking into my phone. Siri has also vanished. Any advice?
Hello, There appears to be an issue with my iPhone 5's rear camera microphone. When recording video it causes white noise and I can barely hear any audio at all. To diagnose the fault I phoned myself and put music on. I could hear the music fine without loudspeaker, I then switched on loudspeaker while the screen was facing upwards (to test the front facing mic) and it was fine, once I turned the phone upside down, the audio cut out. To ensure that my desk wasn't just blocking my front facing mic, I switched loudspeaker off and then turned it back to face up, then again to face down and then switched loudspeaker back on. Unfortunately it confirmed that was the fault. I have recorded voice memos and front facing videos with no issue, but when using the rear camera I still have the same fault. I have cleaned out the small opening for the mic and haven't caused my phone any damage, so I can't understand why this would happen? Has anyone else had this issue? Will I have to have my entire phone replaced, the whole rear camera or just the microphone? Are there any fixes I can perform myself? Thanks,Ross
I recently bought my iPhone 4s from a guy (who bought it from someone else). He sold it to me pretty cheap because when he bought it, one of his friends tried to restore it for him and it got stuck in recovery mode. I have no idea if the phone has ever been "tampered with" or not. He didn't seem to know much about it (said it was his first smartphone) and I thought I might have a chance of fixing it. I'm starting to lose faith in that...I've tried almost everything I can find. I know there are tricks for this all over the internet and I've tried almost all of them. TinyUmbrella does nothing, Redsn0w won't even install on my computer (frustrating!). Trying to restore from iTunes is useless. It gets to about 90% then comes up with error code (-1) and gives up. I've tried that route probably 20 times with no change. I know I could take it into Apple and they could look at it, but I have no information on the phone itself. I cannot get the serial number. Does anyone have any suggestions at all? I'll try anything that doesn't require me taking it to Apple and getting charged more than I paid for the phone to fix it....I run Windows 7. Thanks so much!
The thing is that i've been trying to use my iPhone 4S as master transmiter of GPS signals and accelerometer data for my ipad mini to use an app called air navigation pro, the deal is that when i try to pair my devices vía bluetooth they just seem not to recognize each other, the only way i can get them to work is by using personal hotspot or share internet option vía bluetooth, but thats the only way.I've heard theres a bug related to that, that our friends in cupertino just ignored when they updated IOS, Anyone can help me?, does Anyone has Any info about this, or maybe a solution.By the way since this may be due to my IOS instaled in my iPhone my devices are:-Ipad mini wifi only IOS 6.1.3-iPhone 4s IOS 6.1.3Thanks in advance for Any info proportioned

How much does it cost to get the face and back replaced in the iPhone 4S? I guess our daughter dropped it on the exact stop and it shattered. Can it be fixed?

Can anyone please help me understand what this line may be?It appears on screen when I take pictures and on the actual pictures as shown.If I zoom in a little it disappears and if I turn the camera to face me, even without zooming in, it doesn't show. Thanks for you help.
Few months and my iPhone 5 lock key does not respond.My friends told me that apple ships damaged products to India, is that true?Also, would I get replacement? If yes, would it take weeks or months to get it due to stock issues?I am very much disappointed as of now with apple.Wrong decision it seems to buy an iPhone :(
I try to avoid updates on my iPhone because it's either hit or miss and after the latest update that was released a couple days ago, my worst fear happened. It updated then I left it alone to update. After over an hour I come back and the "connect to iTunes" image appeared and nothing worked. Once iTunes was restarted it said I needed to restore my phone to factory settings. This is ridiculous and very frustrating. I'm not going to lie, several of my friends have Samsung Galaxy S3's or Notes and they seem way more verstitle and reliable then my iphone. Any suggestions?
Dear friends out there, I got a 3gs machine with ios 4.0.1 running till today.

( I got no intension to change phoneat the moment). Thanks for your help.Winston
Hello, I'm an "old" user of Iphone ... 3S, 4, 5 .... on this last one for two times I've broken the frontal glass... never happened with older models Honestly in the first time I have nothing to say because unfortunately my phone fell down bumping the frontal glass on a small stone (from an height of about 1 meter from my pants pocket) and the glass has broken .... but in the second case it fallen down on the back face on a plate surface always from an height of 1 meter and in this second situation my phone was also protected a little bit in a gum cover I choose again APPLE product and especially this model without considering equivalent models of other competitors also for roughness (saw a lot of demo video on the web) but I'm very disappointed from the reality .... I payed twice (220 Euro each time) the replacement with 2 new phone becuse glass broken ae not under guarantee but for this second situation I don't agree with the policy of APPLE and I espect from them at least a commercial action to me because this second payed replacement is absolutely unaccetable ....

I don't see face time in setting in my iPhone 5
I updated my iPhone 5 to 6.1.4 and the camera will not focus - on anything nearby or far away. I've tried the zoom feature - makes it worse. I'm restoring the phone to factory settings, but is there something Apple is doing to fix this bug? An unscientific survey of my Facebook friends reveals they are having the same issue.
Ever since I updated my iphone 4 (GSM) to ios 6.1.3 i have been unable to 'text' people in my contact list. - I can only text new numbers that aren't in my contact list? (Even if i try and type my friends number, instead of selecting their name, i am still unable to text them - it comes up with ERROR) I can only send imessages, successfully, to people in my contacts list. Please HELP! Thanks in advance.
My phone slipped out of my hand landing face down on my kitchen floor. the screen is now cracked. nothing else is wrong with my phone and I want to only replace the screen. I don't see a need to get another phone if mine is fine (besides the big crack on the front.) I want to know if I take my phone to an apple store.. will/ can they replace the screen only? I'm not worried about price and I know warranty doesn't cover accidental damage.
Hi Everybody!I got a factory unlocked (originally was Vodafon locked) iPhone 4s with firmware 6.1.3.When I insert my sim (Hungarian Telenor) when only EDGE is on it founds the signal and seems like everything is working.After a few hours or sometimes even a day passes by a phone stays on full signal with Carrier logo and Edge on, but my friends reporting that they cant call me(like im offline) and i cant make calls either.The interresting stuff is that the Edge connection is fully working during that im offline for my friends via Calls and i can send and recieve imessages and viber messages.When i switch 3g on it disconnects from service drops the EDGE and never finds the way back and stays 'searching' or 'no service' at all.. I thought that its my Carrier's fault so i went to spoke with them and tried 5different micro Sims( cause i wrote that 4s-s are sensitive to SIM card types).. this thing not worked either, Then i tried the phone with a T-mobile SIM card.. it does the same..connects to the services,but with 3g switched on not finding service..so totally like with my sim. Here Comes the bumm... i Tried the phone with vodafone sim and everything works.. simple connectivity to 3g with full internet usage,can make and recieve calls...I spoked with all of the Carriers and also Apple and no body can give me nothing..the phone is off varranty so changed to a new one isnt an option..Anybody? Something? im beginning to give up .. please help if you can..Thanks!! ps.:i restored over 20times,reset network settings,switch off and on automatic setting time.. every little possible things that people wrote on forums before..
Spyware is very easily accessible and requires nothing from the Apple store, and although I realize some of these posts are several years old-at this point, it is simply misinformation. All one needs is a similar program to the one in the link above and not only can your sms messages be accessed, your calls be intercepted and recorded, but the camera in your phone can be remotely accessed and activated at any given time without your knowledge. As you tap away on your handy little iPhone you love so much, in whatever possibly "compromising" or embarrassing position you may be in at the time, a creeper can be looking you straight in your face or observing your enviornement at their leisure. Imagine the horror in finding out that you were sitting there on the toilet gaming and someone was watching you the whole time or better yet, while you were involved in an intimate interaction while your phone sat charging on a dock on the nightstand next to the bed? How about knowing that every incoming and outgoing communication is recorded and documented for the creep to scroll and read through like a book? This is some scary stuff, and it's been used on me via an encrypted picture message. I've done a full restore of my iPhone and the pc used for backing up via iTunes to ensure that the spyware wasn't then rooted into the pc or the iTunes, and was even told to create an etirely new Apple ID, but aside from this and there being no true scanning software for malware, spyware or viruses for the iPhone-how can I be sure that this encrypted software has truly been eradicated? Is there an antiviral program that I am unware of? I'm not looking for a secure AVG browser, I'm looking for a detect and destroy scanner program. <Link Edited by Host>
Hi everyone. Day before yesterday in the evening i was talking to my friend and once i finished my call, i hangup the call.

Then i connected my windows laptops with itunes 10.6 i tunes i tried updated my phone. now my iOS 6.1.4 but i cant fix that external speakers problem. It wasnt working still.

Less than two months ago, I purchased an iPhone 4S 16G, as well as a LifeProof case, which the dealer told me was superior to an Otterbox. It is touted to be waterproof, dirtproof, snow/iceproof, and shockproof. Up until today, I have been quite pleased with my case, though the screen protector does make it a bit harder to to tap the screen. Today, I had my phone in my pocket. When I bent over, it fell out and hit the ground from a height of two feet. It was completely in its case, and I had performed all the checks recommended before using the case. It fell on to carpet. When I picked it up, the case was undamaged, but the entire front of my phone was shattered. It look as though it had been hit by a bullet. The screen still worked, but it was covered with tiny shards of glass. The damage seemed focused around the ear speaker at the top of the phone. I have in the past dropped an iPod touch, sans case, face down onto tile, and the damage was about 4x less than the current damage on my phone. I immediately called Apple, who told me that the warranty did not apply to my situation (though this was not a surprise). I would have to replace my phone, refurbished for $150 or new for $200. I then called LifeProof, at which point I discovered that their warranty only covers the case. They will not refund your phone, though they offered to give me a new case. The person I spoke to told me that he used a LifeProof case, and that his screen had cracked several times while using it. He recommended going to an independent phone dealership who would repair my screen. In short, this overpriced case does almost nothing. To be fair, I have had no problems with the waterproof aspect of the case. However, it will not protect your phone from even the most minor drop that would normally not damage the phone at all. I have seen several accounts of LifeProof owners who put their phone in their pocket and pull it out cracked. This case is not worth $1, let alone $80. For emphasis, I have included some photos of what my phone looks like after the fall. Remember, this was only two feet and onto carpet while in the supposedly shock-proof case.
Hi, I recently brought an Iphone 4, when I went to use the cellular internet on it, it won't work. One of the friends at work suggested that I try my personal hotspot, which I did. It told me "if you wish to set up hotspot, contact Vodafone Au" which is silly as I know I have a data pack as I am still paying for it.. HELP.
I have a friend I am trying to add in Game Center. We have both tried to add each other. I have 3 different phones (2 iphone 5s and an iphone 4) from which I have tried to add her. Nothing seems to work. We have also tried to add from another user in GC. She is in Europe, and I am in USA. I have added "friends" from other countries. Ironically this is an actual friend of mine. We have tried over several days to add each other. I am spelling it correctly. Any thoughts?.
I can connect using wifi without any issues and surf the net. Connections seems to be fine and my friends who are on the same service have no issues. Any ideas on cause?
My iphone 4 has been operating with a non-functioning power button for months, today it went nuts vibrating and then died. I can't do a hard reset (due to the power button) and I can't restore (due to the fact that I'm traveling and away from my iTunes). I've plugged into a friends mac and iTunes is not recognizing the device. Any suggestions? PS: I'm also in an apple store-less place for the time being. Help?

Hi. Can someone tell me if you can use find iPhone to find a friends iPhone, and if so how? I remember seeing an advert where someone found where their friend was in a football stadium, but can't remember what app was used to do it. Thanks Rob
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.
My Iphone 4S stopped recognizing my Sim card - the Sim card still works in my friends Iphone - what can I do
the phone felt very warm after using it for about 30 minutes to move icons around, check email, browse the Web, and test a few apps. In fact, it became uncomfortably warm.
needed help to maximize the use of the iphone unit if the problem could be solved thank you
About once a month half of an extremely old text message will randomly show up in a recent text message that I will send to someone. The texts are always over 6 months old and its only half of the text, blended into the current text I'm sending. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? Is there something wrong with my phone/ my friends phone?
Does anyone know how to do this?Thanks in advance for your help.

My friends are texting me and what one says shows up in the other's conversation? How do I fix this?
i compared it to my friends iphone 4 and you can barely hear that one ive only had it for about a month so is this normal?
My Iphone 5 was stolen, but I have an old Iphone 4, which I've reactivated. I write music, and I use my Notes app to store my lyrics in, and I really need access to the Notes on the Iphone 5 that were stolen because I'm not done with few things. In other words, I want to erase everything from my Iphone 4, and replace it with stuff from my Iphone 5. I've backed up the Iphone 5 recently before it was stolen, so if everything were to be on the old one, it would be up to date.
Yesterday I was texting one of my friends when we got into a text bomb match thing when I sent a really long message like 100,000 characters my phone foreclosed the messaging app and everytime I have tried to foreclose it after hitting the home button twice it pops up with a blank little preview of what the messaging app would look like without any messages or options. Please help me fix this problem I mainly use my phone for texting! What are some possible solutions to the problem??
Hi everyone, Greetings from istanbul, I bought my iPhone 5 from Newyork in january 2013 and I have been using it in Istanbul/Turkey. I did complete whole legal procudure. ( service operator, passaport process and etc) But when I opened the brand new phone. I had faced with technical problem. The half of the screen resolution was lower than the other side of it. Sometimes I can barely see the half of the screen. Thus I really feel my eyes tired. My question; Is it possible to change the phone from different apple store in U.S ? or do I have to chage it from the place where I bought it in first. one of my friends will go Boston in may: does he replace the phone in Boston ? Very turly yours, Volkan
Hello Apple Community : ) Unfortunately my old faithful 3GS recently gave up the ghost so I purchased an iphone 4S via e-bay but from an individual seller opposed to a company. (1st mistake....) Phone's a 32GB in white and to be fair works fine in every way except the camera?? I've attached a couple of photos I've just taken with my phone and another iphone 4 and I'm sure you can see the difference!! All pictures are coming out majorly cloudy/soft?? Basically sh*t! Any ideas oh Apple gurus? I've googled it and not really seen anything that helpful but must admit it's starting to bug the **** out of me as I am rather partial in taking a pic or two....... I'm currently living in Mallorca (Balearic islands) and we lack an Apple store here so would really appreciate any wise words any of you may have or indeed of any fix I could do hear myself? 'Saludos'DannyLongLegs

For about a week, iMessage has not been working on my iPhone 4. It is turned on, I have wifi, and service. It is not just my phone, either. friends with iPhones have had the same problem. I thought at first, that there was something down with Verizon, but users with AT&T have had the same issues. Has anyone had the same issue or know if something is going on?
Cannot figure out how to set a sound alert for Find friends notifications. I only get an alert banner but not sound which seems more useful when waiting for notifications.I have the latest version and cannot find anything close to setting this up, maybe there isn't????
I bought an iPhone 4 around 5 months back. It was on iOS 6.1.2 and I upgraded it to 6.1.3. Since then my phone has been heating up very much and the battery also drains from 100% to almost 50% in around 1 hour. I would like to get a new I phone 4 only so that I use it and not burn my face.
When i deleted my friends old number, i deleted her contact all together and created a new contact with her new number. Now when i go to create a text when i type in her name it brings up both numbers and i cant seem to permanently delete the old number from that list. But when i check contacts there is only one number there which is her new one i saved.
I would like to be able to hide or lock apps.....anyone know?
