So I bought an iPhone of Craigslist a while back, it seemed legit, but as I was setting it up, it got locked. I think he did it, just because the timing was so close to after the purchase. It was running iOS 7 so yeah, activation lock made it unusable. My friend, out of pity, gave me his iPhone 4. same model # and everything according to the back cover. But it was really messed up, as in the back was shattered. It just stopped working a few days ago. as in it only powers on when plugged in and loops the apple logo unless I put it in recovery mode, then it holds an apple logo + cable icon. But when I try to restore it, it always fails. Error 2014, 2009, 2005, 21, and now its stuck on error 23. Is it possible for me to replace the activation locked iPhone 4 with the shattered back iPhone and basically bypass activation lock? Or can I do that vice versa and use the parts of the activation locked iPhone to repair the shattered one?

how to bypass the 4-digit screen lock passcode for the iphone 4- sprint - but service has been disconnected
how do i either bypass the lock screen with the 4-digit passcode and be able to use the apps also or how can i disable or change the passcode so i can get into the phone and not erase any of my stored info? i have an iphone 4 sprint but its service is disconnected please please please help
My phone and iPad were working fine and they suddenly went into activation required mode. Any ideas
Ok, this is pretty specifik, I know. But I think it is an important question to find an answer to, and Apple doesnt really seem to know.
I just got my iPhone 5 stolen from me. I had a passcode set, so no worries, but the thief immedietly turned off the phone. As soon as I could get to a computer and log into iCloud and the Find my iPhone service the phone was offline already.
I initiated an Erase throug Find my iPhone, which now is pending. Since I had a passcode on my stolen phone, I assume there is no way for the perp to connect to any WiFi, and therefore the Find my iPhone service will not be able to complete the pending Erase.
Now to my question: If the perp connects the iPhone to a computer running iTunes with an internet connection and tries restoring it, is iTunes then able to complete the pending Erase and lock down the iPhone?
Im aware of the fact that the perp acutally cannot restore the iPhone in iTunes since hed be needing my Apple ID password to disable the Find my iPhone feature in the Settings app. But, even so, the perp might not know that and actually might try to connect it to iTunes and restore it. And if he does, it would be REALLY neat if iTunes could complete the pending Erase.
Does anyone have a clue?

The front camera in my new iPad iOS 6 is not working This affects FaceTime iPad is only 1 week old I have updated software and rebooted Any ideas
The front camera in my brand new iPad is not working, this means I cannot use FaceTime. I have updated the software and rebooted, still no joy. If u switch to front camera it gets stuck on shutter screen and I have to close the app to get it back to the back camera. I wouldnt expect this with a brand new product.

I support the iPhone at my business. One of my users has put a passcode on his iPhone and doesnt remember what it is. He says he didnt even create one. Soft reset of the phone did nothing to help. Any ideas? Anything would be appreciated.Thanks

Lalala long story, short of it is - touchscreen is only working and responsive to right and upper portion of phone, preventing me from being able to use # keypad to unlock my phone, which allows me to answer calls, view texts, etc... GR! So is there any other super secret way to flip the screen, or do a little dance, or plug it into I dunno.. my trucks jumper cables and cross my fingers?
Naw, didnt think soo..
Is there any way to keep YouTube from switching to YouTube Mobile when you go to YouTube on Safari? The reason I ask is because Id like to be able to comment on videos. It doesnt seem like the iPhone 3G would be incapable of viewing the full version of YouTube, as Im able to view the full versions of many other websites without problems. Its not like its a standard cell phone that cant manage full websites. Thanks!

Im really looking forward to upgrading my iPhone to 2.1, but in order to upgrade it has to backup the iPhone first. Its been running for an hour now and the progress bar has barely moved! At this pace itll take at least 10 hours to backup! And if I receive a phone call, Im screwed. Since this is my business phone, chances are really high that Im going to get a call in the next several hours.
So is there any way to bypass the backup so I can install 2.1?

At the risk of sounding like a complete idiot, when I plug my headphones into the iPhone, they dont work, i.e. bypass the speaker. I tried them out on an mp3 player and they work fine. So, I figure theres some setting somewhere that I havent set properly and Ill be darned if I can find it. Can anyone help me out? Many thanks.

will touch id stop my phone from being stolen and hacked into to bypass pin. a friend of mine said that if he found my phone he could plug it into itunes and retore it to new and earase the phone and keep it as his own. the only reason why i would get the iphone 5s is because of the touch id only if it would make the phone useless to anyone who has my phone besides me and would not be able to hack into it. i like my iphone 4s and that was ther reason why i didnt get 5. but 5s would be a good by for me if anyone could let me know if touch id is the solution to phone theft. I think itunes should have a password in order to access the phone anyways. also is apple going to use landscape mode anymore. it seems like more and more apps are fading away form this but i have big hands and landscape mode is a lot more comfortable in my hands. I dont see why i could enable a landscape mode for my home screen layout and all the other apps that i would like to use my phone sideways for. thanks

I got a slight problem here..
Bought the new iPhone about 6 weeks ago and have used my old 3G for my Swedish SIM card (I unlocked it).
A few days ago I decide to restore it cause it was so slow it was driving me insane. The problem I ran into was that I need a normal size AT&T SIM card to activate the iPhone again after restoring it. 1. I dont know where my old AT&T SIM card it 2. even it I found it, I think I cant use it since everything is now activated on my micro SIM for my 4G phone.
How do I activate my 3G?
Can I ask AT&T for a normal SIM so I can activate it?
If I go to an Apple store, can they activate it for me?
I just want it to work. Dont care if its unlocked or not.
Thanks so much

I bought an iPhone 3GS in New York about a month ago, only to find out that it wouldnt charge. It was an unlocked phone, and it was probably used before. I sent it in to apple because it wouldnt charge, and they sent me a new one. When I turned it on, it said that I had to put the original sim card in, but there was no origial sim card that came with it. What can I do?
I am from Norway, so thats why I bought the unlocked phone, and the sim card I have from Norway wouldnt work. I need help! I paid alot of money for this unlocked phone!
After I restored my iphone3gs, it wont activate. I connected to itune as well still doesnt work.

I just got my 3G iPhone from AT&T and I tried to call them to activate it, they told me to do it through iTunes. But my phone just says waiting for activation. The phone syncs and everything but wont activate. Do I have to take it to a store or is there something I am not doing?

This is not really iPad specific. There is no 3G network where I live. I have the first generation iPhone that uses the Edge network. My work does not have a WiFi network either. So, will the iPad 3G work for me using the Edge network? Is not, is there a way to get it working for me? Do I have to wait for the WiFi version of the iPad and set up a WiFi network and never use Edge or 3G?
I really know very little about networking.
