I recently put iCloud on my iPhone and I hated it. It also disrupted my outgoing mail. I removed iCloud but I still cannot send mail. I get a message saying that the device cannot connect with my server. However, when I look at my settings the server info seems fine. Any ideas?
My iCloud account on my iPad is different from the iCloud account from my iPhone. From what Ive read the only way to really change this is to delete one of the iCloud accounts. I want the phone the same as the iPad account even though all my pics and music are on my phone. I so Do Not want to lose any of them!!! If I delete my iCloud account does all of my data, images, songs, etc, stay on my phone?
Data attached to iCloud or to device or to iTunes (which btw Im having trouble with and Id like to not use if I dont have to)
Help! I am giving away my iPhone 3Gs to my sister along with its data plan. I want to delete all of my personal data on my phone, will it delete my data on iTunes too? And same goes for iCloud; I want to delete my acount on my phone because, I guess this is a more convenient way to delete my personal data but Im not sure if it will delete my iCloud account too or not because Im getting an iPhone 4S and Im hoping, the back up data like games & apps and music on my 3Gs will be transfered to 4S.Thanks!
As has been described elsewhere, the Outlook sync problem affecting iTunes 9.1.X under WinXP has one workaround that I can verify as re-establishing bi-directional Contacts and Notes sync:
replacing the files: libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll in C:WINDOWSsystem32 with copies of those files from:C:Program FilesCommon FilesAppleMobile Device Support
Note: in my case, the iTunes Diagnostics: Help -> Run Diagnostics still reports a failure (no iPod/iPhone Detected) with yellow light for iPod/iPhone Connectivity, but the sync does indeed happen. (iTunes does show the phone under Devices as is normal...)
My question: as others have reported that this problem also exists in Windows7, am wondering if someone has indeed encountered it there, that this fix also works, and which corresponding directories the files swap should occur.
Particulars for this fix:
WinXP Pro SP3
iPhones 3G and 3GS running 3.1.3
Thanks in advance.
iPhone OS 3.1.3
This was my post on another area but I accidently marked it as a question, so someone told me I shouldnt have marked it as a question so it could have helped more people...so here it is, I hope it helps you too.
*** THIS WILL FIX YOUR iPhone BATTERY ISSUE !!!!!! BUT YOU HAVE TO TAKE THESE STEPS EXACTLY AS I MENTION THEM AND IN THE ORDER STATED. SOME OF THESE MAY SEEM REDUNDANT BUT PLEASE BE PATIENT AND FOLLOW THEM AND YOU WILL HAVE YOUR iPhone BACK THE WAY IT WAS MEANT TO BE.
I AM UNDER THE OPINION THAT THE REASON WHY WE HAVE NOT HEARD MORE OUT OF APPLE IS THAT THEY KNOW THE UPDATE WORKS BUT PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING THROUGHT THE PROPER STEPS FOR THE UPDATE TO TAKE CORRECTLY. I TOO WAS DISAPPOINTED AND STARTED HAVING MY DOUBTS ABOUT APPLE , ESPECIALLY SINCE THIS WAS MY FIRST iPhone.
***GIVE THIS A TRY BEFORE YOU GIVE UP ON THEM COMPLETELY IT WILL HELP***
HERE WE GO…
ALLOW YOURSELF ABOUT 1 ½ TO 2 HOURS TIME TO INVEST IN THIS PROCESS BUT IT’S WORTH IT
Well…in my last post right after I did the 5.1.0 update to my iPhone 4s I remarked about how it worked and it was doing great. Not long after that (the next day at work) I noticed that the battery life was better or seemed to be but it wasn’t quite what I thought it should be. So as I am “OCD” and do not mind doing some trial and error on my phone (I mean what do we have to lose at this point right ) Here are my findings and there is a significant increase in the battery life. Just for good measure even after I discovered the difference in mine I took my wife’s 4s and performed the exact same steps to hers and she is back to the way the 4s is supposed to be, and the way it was in the beginning when we first purchased them!! (might I say she was a little reluctant to let me have my will with hers since doing the 5.0.1 update was all my doings anyway and took our phones from us so to speak, but being a good wife she trusted me one last time ;-)
THE PROCESS AS I DID IT:
OPEN ICloud AND IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY DONE SO DO A BACK UP, THIS STEP IS SOLELY TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU WILL HAVE YOUR CONTACTS AFTER YOU ARE FINISHED WITH THIS WHOLE PROCESS. WE WILL NOT BE RESTORING FROM iCloud SO THIS STEP IS NOT FOR A RESTORE PURPOSE. AFTER YOU HAVE BACKED UP TO iCloud
OPEN YOUR SETTINGS ICON AND ONE CATEGORY AT A TIME STARTING WITH THE AIRPLANE MODE AND START GOING DOWN THE LIST, GO INTO EACH ONE AND MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IN THAT TAB AND SUB-TABS IN TURNED OFF. **EVERYTHING**
O.K. AFTER YOU HAVE TURNED EVERYTHING OFF GO INTO SETTINGS AGAIN AND COMPLETELY DELETE ALL OF YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNTS AND YOUR iCloud ACCOUNT. IT’S O.K. YOUR iCloud ACCOUNT IS NOT REALLY DELETED YOU ARE JUST DELETEING IT FROM YOUR PHONE. WE WILL BE PUTTING IT BACK ON LATER. LEAVE ALL APPS ON YOUR PHONE THAT YOU THINK OR KNOW THAT YOU WANT AND DELETE ANY THAT YOU THINK YOU DO NOT WANT. NEXT STEP IS CONNECTING TO iTunes BUT…NOW YOU HAVE TO BE QUICK AND AT THIS POINT AND STOP THE SYNC PROCESS BY CLICKING ON THE CIRCLE WITH AN “X” IN IT AT THE TOP MIDDLE OF SCREEN WHERE IS READS WHAT STEP IN THE SYNC PROCESS IT IS IN. DO NOT LET YOUR PHONE SYNC JUST YET OR YOU WILL UNDO EVERYTHING YOU JUST DID MANUALLY WITH YOUR PHONE. IN THE LEFT COLUMN IN iTunes YOU WILL SEE YOUR iPhone’s NAME RIGHT CLICK ON IT (WINDOWS) OR TWO FINGER TAP (MAC) AND CHOOSE “BACKUP” AGAIN YOU MAY THINK A LOT OF THIS IS REDUNDANT AND YOU COMPUTER GURU’S OUT THERE MAY KNOW A BETTER WAY BUT THIS IS WHAT WORKED FOR ME (REPEATADLY) AND SO FOR THE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT MAY NOT KNOW OR ARE FRUSTRATED THE UPDATE ISN’T WORKING THIS IS MEANT TO HELP WHOEVER IS ABOUT TO GIVE UP ON THERE PHONE. AFTER YOU HAVE BACKED YOU PHONE UP IN iTunes (WHICH WE DID JUST FOR SAFE MEASURE) CLICK ON “SUMMARY” AND CHOOSE THE “DOWNLOAD & UPDATE”, THIS WILL TAKE ABOUT 40 MINS. O.K. NOW AFTER YOUR PHONE HAS DOWNLOADED AND UPDATED, YOU MAY BE AT A POINT TO WHERE YOU ARE CHOOSING WHAT TO LET RUN ON YOUR PHONE LIKE “SIRI, LOCATION SERVICES, iCloud, ETC.” CHOOSE “NO” FOR ALL OF THEM SO NOT LET ANYTHING START TO RUN ON YOUR PHONE. NOW AT THE STEP OF SETTING UP iCloud OR iTunes CHOOSE SKIP OR IF IT WON’T LET YOU SKIP CHOOSE “SET UP WITH iTunes” AND LET YOUR PHONE CONNECT TO iTunes. (REMEMBER DO NOT LET YOUR PHONE SYNC AT THIS POINT EITHER…STOP IT !!
NOW AT THIS POINT YOU ARE GOING TO DO PRETTY MUCH THE SAME THING BUT AS YOU WILL SEE IT WILL BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT.
AGAIN CHOOSE THE “SUMMARY” TAB AND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SCREEN YOU WILL SEE “UPDATE” OR “RESTORE”, THIS TIME YOU ARE GOING TO CHOOSE “RESTORE”! IT’S O.K. PUSH IT, DON’T BE SCARED…EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT. LOL NOW THIS PART IS CRITICAL…AFTER YOU CLICK “RESTORE” THE NEXT SCREEN YOU SHOULD BE LOOKING AT (AND I DON’T REMEMBER IS IT PROCEEDS WITH THE RESTORE OR IF YOU HAVE ONE MORE OPTIONS SCREEN) IS EITHER ONE THAT ASKS IF YOU WANT TO RESTORE TO LIKE NEW FACTORY SETTINGS OR HAS A TEXT BOX TO CHOOSE THE PHONE NAME…EITHER WAY…YOU WANT TO CHOOSE RESTORE PHONE TO FACTORY SETTING (LIKE NEW) THEN WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING AT A SCREEN THAT READS “iPhone Name” AND IS HIGHLIGHTED CHOOSE THE NAME YOU WANT YOU PHONE TO BE. THEN RIGHT BELOW THAT IS A FEW “CHECK BOXES” UN-SELECT THE ONE THAT READS SYNC AND RESTORE TO A BACK-UP. YOU DO NOT WANT TO RESTORE TO A BACK-UP !!!! NOW ONCE THE RESTORE PROCESS HAS FINISHED AND YOUR PHONE HAS RE-BOOTED YOU SHOULD BE LOOKING AT A SCREEN THAT ASKS YOU TO CHOOSE YOUR COUNTRY, AGAIN GO THROUGH ALL THE STEPS AND AGAIN DO NOT CHOOSE YES TO ANY OF THE OPTIONS LIKE SIRI OR LOCATION SERVICES OR iCloud. CHOOSE NO TO ALL. IT MAY NOT LET YOU CONTINUE PAST THE iTunes ACCOUNT PART IF NOT GO AHEAD AND ENTER IN YOUR iTunes INFO I.E. EMAIL & PASSORD. NOW YOU SHOULD BE LOOKING AT A PHONE THAT LOOKS AS PLAIN AS THE DAY YOU BOUGHT IT !!!! EXCITING HUH?...J/K THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT. NOW WHAT I DID AT THIS POINT IS A HARD RESTART WHERE YOU HOLD THE “HOME” BUTTON AND THE “LOCK SCREEN” BUTTON AT THE SAME TIME LET THE PHONE BLACK OUT AND KEEP HOLDING THEM UNTIL YOU SEE THE APPLE ICON, NOW LET GO OF THEM BOTH. AFTER THAT DO A SOFT RESET THIS IS WHEN YOU HOLD JUST THE “LOCK SCREEN” BUTTON UNTIL THE “POWER OFF” SLIDER APPEARS AT THE TOP, WHEN IT DOES GO AHEAD AND SLIDE IT TO TURN YOU PHONE OFF. AFTER A MOMENT TURN YOU PHONE BACK ON AFTER PHONE BOOTS UP GO INTO SETTINGS AND CHOOSE RESET ALL SETTINGS AND LET IT CYCLE THROUGH AGAIN.NOW AFTER PHONE POWERS BACK UP, PLUG IT INTO YOUR COMPUTER AND OPEN iTunes, AGAIN STOP THE SYNC PROCESS !!!!! O.K. NOW STILL IN iTunes CHOOSE THE “APPS” TAB AND LOOK AND MAKE SURE YOU WANT THE APPS THAT ARE THERE AND WAITING TO BE SYNCD IF YOU DO NOT WANT THEM ALL UN-CHECK THE ONES THAT YOU DON’T WANT. THIS MAY BE A GOOD TIME TO BE “CHOOSY” AND NOT PUT A BUNCH OF JUNK ON YOUR PHONE THAT MAY NOT LET YOU KNOW IF THE UPDATE “TOOK” SO TO SPEAK. AFTER CHOOSING APPS YOU WANT GO AHEAD AND CHECK THE SYNC BOX AND CLICK SYNC AT THE BOTTOM. AFTER YOU HAVE YOUR APPS ON YOUR PHONE YOU CAN GO TO “SETTINGS” AND GO TO THE iCloud TAB AND ENTER IN YOUR iCloud ACCOUNT SIGN IN INFO. ONCE YOU DO THAT TURN OFF THE THINGS YOU DON’T WANT IT TO BACK UP. MATTER OF FACT I TURNED EVERYTHING OFF AND THE ONLY ONE THAT I LET “KEEP INFORMATION ON PHONE” WAS CONTACTS. (REMEMBER EARLIER WHEN WE WHERE HERE AND I MENTIONED WE WOULD COME BACK TO THIS LATER? WELL HERE WE ARE…ONLY FOR CONTACTS) AFTER SYNCING CONTACTS (AND GIVE IT A FEW MINUTES TO DOWNLOAD THEM ALL) I CHOSE TO DELETED MY iCloud ACCOUNT AND KEEP CONTACTS INFO ON PHONE. (YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU WANT BUT IT MAY RUN IN THE BACKGROUND ALL THE TIME AND MESS YOUR UPDATE UP) USE AT OWN RISK NOW GO BACK INTO YOUR SETTINGS AND SET EVERYTHING UP LIKE YOU WANT IT LIKE YOUR SOUNDS ETC., I KEEP AUTOMATIC BRIGHTNESS OFF AND SET IT ABOUT 1/3 THE WAY UP, ON YOUR EMAILS I SET MINE UP NOT TO “PUSH” I WANTED TO BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD ANY NEW EMAILS WHEN I ACTUALLY OPEN MY EMAIL APP.
WELL THERE YOU GO…I HOPE IT HELPS YOU GET YOU PHONE BACK (AND YOUR LIFE) LOL
HOPEFULLY THIS WILL HELP YOU, AGAIN I FEEL THAT THIS IS WHY WE HAVEN’T HEARD MORE FROM APPLE, THEY KNOW IT WORKS, IT’S JUST DO-IT-YOURSELF USERS LIKE US THAT DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO DO-IT-OURSELVES THE CORRECT WAY.
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND PATIENCE !!
I WILL TRY TO ATTACH SOME PICTURES TO SHOW MY USAGE AND BATTERY LIFE FROM 1:00 AM FRIDAY TO ABOUT 8:00 AM MONDAY MORNING !!!

Today I plugged my phone into my dads computer and it automatically synced. Now, all the content on my phone has been replaced with my dads iTunes content including contacts, messages, and calendar.

Hey everyone! Today I decided to update my iPhone 4 because it was still on 4.3 iOS Software. I went and updated it to 5.1 aware that it would erase all of my data (e.g. Applications, etc). After running through the iphone set up, I unlocked my phone aware that some of my data would be gone, but I still had my contacts & photos. I then decided to back up and restore my phone to an earlier state in which I still had all of my applications. After doing so I unlocked my phone only to discover ALL data completely gone, including my 200+ photos, music and contacts. I was completely in shock because the point at which I restored my phone, I still had all of my data. Im now stuck with a fresh iPhone with only 3 of my previous apps, and no contacts or photos or music! I immediately did some research to discover I had to simply erase my settings through General, then restore it with my wifi using iCloud. NOW HERE IS SOMETHING TRICKY - My computer says I last updated iCloud @ 4:04PM, but when I go through the iCloud restore set-up process on my phone, It only shows earlier dates from my iPad, so restoring it does absolutely no good because I dont have anything like contacts or photos on my iPad. So my question is, how can I use iCloud to restore my iPhone 4 back to the state with my contacts & photos when only 3 un-helpful restore points are showing, and why cant I select the last updated iCloud time showing on my computer? Any info would be so helpful Im missing an incredible amount of photos and contacts. Thank you so much in advance
Another person is using my old (stolen) iphone, and is now using my iCloud account, making backups from my old phone. I just realized this, because i bought a new iphone and tried to restore my old phone via. this backup.When i used my iCloud backup, his new backup on my old(stolen) phone was ported to my new iPhone. Is it possible to deauthorize him from my iCloud, and restore my old backup before he began changing the backup in the cloud?
My phone was stolen 3 months ago, where i made my last backup.
