The bag containing my iphone got caught in the rain yesterday, and my phone wet as a result. It initially worked as normal but a little slow, then I realised it had gone off completely. Although the screen was completely blank, the flashlight stayed on.After reading a few forums online I put my phone into a ziplock freezer bag full of rice and 1 silica gel pack.Eventually the light went off (I guess as the battery died), After 24hours I took it out the bag and plugged it in the wall. The apple logo came up then immediately aftwards the screen went blank, but the flashlight came back on and a clicking noise seemed to be coming from the camera.Im a bit concerened now, and have put the phone back into the rice bag.Does anyone have any tips to help me or is the phone dead? I cant remember the last time I backed the phone up, so is it likely Ive lost the data I havent backed up?ThanksPaul
iphone 4 flash light stays on
I just got an Iphone 4 couple of weeks ago, and just the other day the camera light comes on and will not turn off. I had a flashlight app and opened it and tried turning it off and then on again but got no where. So then I deleted the app and hard reset the phone but still nothing. So I let the phone die hoping that the light would go out. Well it has been 15 hrs since my phone turned off and the light is still on. It is much dimmer than before but I cant believe that there is still juice in the battery. Does anybody have any ideas. Thanks
I dropped my iphone and the camera is on all the time. Ive turned the phone off and the light stays on. Ive also taken some pictures. Any help I would be indebted !!
By pressing the camera button in my iPhone, I am able to take photos. Pictures taken after sunset are not coming off well. They appear darker. I noticed when I click at night, there is no flash light. Where is the setting to turn on this light facility?

My light for the flash bulb is on and wont turn off. Tried a master reset with no luck. HELP!
I just got the phone, turned the flash to auto and took a picture, it worked.
Then I wanted to see if I can just keep it on so put it on on and the flash does not appear.
If I put it in recording mode however, the flash will stay on, anyone have the same issue? Or is is supposed to be like this........

Iphone 4 GSM Is on and vibrating and taking calls but screen is completely black and backlight is on
HiMy iPhone has always constantly been on wireless network at my home for example and even when the auto-lock is on. It happens when Im connected to Wi-Fi. When I first got my iPhone for three years ago, this was not happening. The issue is that my iPhones battery capacity reduces drastically when its on Wi-Fi 24/7, and this is not good. I think one of the firmware updates at iTunes back in the days changed this Wi-Fi option on iPhones to be constantly on, or is it any auto preferences I can switch on to stop this connection when the auto-lock is on?I will appreciate any advice.
All of a sudden I realize that the screen of my iPhone 4 stays on (with a bright screen) far longer than it used to, before it dims and then goes into sleep mode. Is there a setting to change this paramenter?
This behaviour seems to have appeared after I ran an app called Enjoy Sudoku, which allows to turn off the dimming and sleep function.
Any ideas? Cheers, Veit

My iPhone 3gs just started to leave the screen on when charging. This cannot be good for battery life and I am pretty sure it use to go dark (like in sleep mode) when charging in the past. Any thoughts?

I tried to jailbreak my iphone using redsnow but i failed and gave up.After that my iphone 3GS wont allow me access to my gamecenter profile or allow me to play videos on youtube so i reseted the network settings a all of a sudden my iphone goes black like its turned off.I tried pressing the home button and the power button together for 10 sec but nothing happened.Thinking somehow it entered DFU mode i tries to exit DFU mode still nothing, but when I connect my iphone to my computer it wont recognize it it keeps poping up the message : USB device not recognized .I think i might have somehow broken my logic board.What do you guys think ?
Hello everyone, yesterday my iPhone has been downloaded, and then it was off. When I put him in charge I output the word iTunes with the USB cable pictured below, I connected it to the pc and tells me that I have to do the restore but I did not back up (did not expect to suddenly have this problem) I want to know if there is an alternative to backup (iTunes makes me do it) before restoring it (otherwise I would lose all)? thanks

On this one I have the setting in the settings but I cannot enable it, when i set the slider to enabled and exit and enter the settings screen again the slider is back to disabled.
Tried to restore network settings, tried to restore all setting to factory but nothing helps.
When I set up the iPhone as a new iPhone I can activate Facetime but it is a **** of of job to setup everything on the phone again and what is a backup then for?
Can anybody help with this issue?

recently my iPhone 3G (i bought it half a year ago and im running the latest software) wont respond to plucking out the headset. So even though there are no headphones or head-set being used, it still stays in head-set mode.
Reading along some posts here, ive tried several solution options, but none of them would work for me. Heres what ive tried so far:
1.) plucking headphones in and out several of times
2.) resetting the iPhone
3.) restoring the iPhone
4.) cleaning the headset/headphone insert
None of all these options have worked to fix my problem. Now it sometimes switches back to regular microphone and speaker function, but that only lasts for couple of minutes. Ive also figured that it might have something to do with my iphone overheating - is that possible?
Are there any other solutions out there? Maybe a software-option which lets you control the input/outputs? Cause it doesnt seem to be a hardware problem, at least not for me.

Apologies if previously asked and answered.
When the iPhone is in sleep mode and I receive a call, after hanging up the iPhone returns to sleep mode. When I wake it the phone app is still active. Is there a setting somewhere I can tweak to make the app close after incoming calls are answered.
