Internal speaker problems

Hello all,
I purchased my Iphone 3GS yesterday, and I immediately encountered a huge problem.
When making a call:
-> I can be heard
-> I can hear thru external speaker and headset
-> but the internal speaker does not work !
I didnt install anything yet, just configured it a bit ... (activated bluetooth, but did not connect to anything just yet)
After a while, and when changing the volume, it suddenly started working.
It is still working now ... but it seems low on volume (although usable).
Im wondering if this is hardware related (and if I need to get the thing serviced after 1 day !) I have found some topics on it, but there was never a solution or cause of the problem mentioned.
To be honest ... this is just UNacceptable. I have used 2 htcs and one blackberry, all with there own problems, but never to this extend.
thanks for your replies !

Screen and speaker sound problems

I just got a new iPhone to replace my 11 month old one - the screen has come lose on one side and their was a slight crack underneath. They tried to tell me that it had got water in it and I should be careful. INcidently, I had never had it in water so I cant dont know how water had got in it - other than drips of rain that may have got in it through the headphone socket. That incidently, is a bit of a design fault with iphone, if you get caught in the rain it will only take one drip of a rain-drop to knacker your screen. That being said, the genious bar did replace my iphone no problems - was week from the end of warrenty!!
So, my new phone is great, thanks Apple, but it seems to have a fault when I first when to use the ipod. The sound only comes out of one of the speakers. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I have checked the settings but there doesnt arrear to be nothing where you can adjust the balance. I have set the eq to small speakers and still no joy. Any ideas, or is it a trip back to the Genious bar?

iPhone 4S Speaker Problem after IOS 6.1 update

i have updated my iphone 4S to iOS 6.1.1 update but noticed no sound is coming out from the external speaker after the update (ringer / music / sounds). Tried toggling mute buttons, clean dock connector, plug/unplug headset but no luck. Yesterday, I have updated to latest update IOS 6.1.2 but still no luck. Did hard reset / restore.... restore and another series of hard resets but still no luck.


It seems like its a software problem since I never had this issue prior to updating my iphone.


Appreciate advice/suggestion.

After iOS 7 upgrade can't connect to bluetooth Logitech speaker

Is there a fix for this?

iOS 4.2.1 update problems on iPhone 3G

I have noticed a few problems with the update. My iPhone is now back to being slow and choppy. My battery drains a lot faster. And when I go to the app store, it will only show some of the pictures of the apps, I have to close it and open it again to make it start showing pictures again. Also, my signal strength on both the cell service and WIFI fluctuate more that it did prior to the update. I have never seen my WIFI signal drop inside my house until I updated to this version of the iOS.
Also, about the slow and choppy problem....prior to iOS 4.2.1, a Genius Bar employee told me to re-setup the phone as new and then sync all my info. back on the phone. It was a pain to deal with reseting all of my setting, however it did help the speed of the phone on iOS 4.1 and I was enjoying my iPhone again, however as soon as I updated to iOS 4.2.1, it was back to being slow and choppy as I noted above.

iOS 7 Music Sync Problems with iPhone 4

This problem started before the upgrade to iOS 7, but the problem has only grown worse since the uprade. When I try to play songs on iTunes, iTunes will freeze up, play very short snippets of the song, change the time of the song to about 3 seconds, and will not change back. When I check the file where I store my music, it says the file is fine. I decided to just go ahead and try putting the files on my phone, but the sync froze up and came back as an error. Now my phone is randomly taking music off, wont let me take music that Ive purchased through iTunes off, and is even giving me issues when I try to put any music on. My phone is my primary music player and wold very much like to get this problem fixed soon.

iPhone 3gs GPS problems on ios 4.3

Ever since I updated to ios 4.3 Ive had problems with the GPS. Using google maps it will find my location initially but not follow me when driving. It will update after about 30 seconds but will continue to not follow me. I also have Navigon and 99% of the time it will not find my location. Ive checked location services and restored the phone to a clean ios 4.3.1 install and still nothing. I am not at 4.3.2. Not sure if it matters but the modem firmware is 05.16.02. This is a replacement phone I received from Best Buy because my battery in my original iphone was going bad. So Im assuming this is a refurbished phone. I personally have never unlocked this phone. Have been using the GPS for 18 months will no problems until now. Ive tried turning wifi off/on, 3G off/on and reset the network settings. Any ideas? Im beginning to think this is a hardware issue.

iPhone photo problems after IOS 5 upgrade

Updated iPhone 4 to IOS 5 a couple of weeks ago and now my photos are no longer recognized in iPhoto or images and I cant import them. Had a 1 to 1 @ Apple Store and couldnt resolve the issue. Went on vacation, took more pictures, many more to upload. Still cannot.

Genius Bar appointment today, tried plugging my iPhone into another laptop AND iMac and still couldnt import.

Specialist suggests emailing them (130 from vacation!) to myself and then restoring the phone.


This problem didnt happen until after I upgraded to IOS 5.


Any suggestions greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

iPhone 3GS iOS 4.2.1 GPS Problems

HiI have a problem with GPS on my iPhone 3GS.Basically any application I use for GPS, initally gets a GPS fix, i.e. MAPS, Navfree, TomTom, Nike+GPS etc.. and the location is correct.However when I start moving, the tracking is very flakey.TOMTOM reports a poor GPS Reception and doesnt even work.I have tried it in many areas, when others can get a fix.I have also restored the phone back to defaults, but still no joy.I think the GPS chip is on its way out, but the only thing thats stopping me saying this for sure is that the phone on launching the app gets the fix correct.Has anyone else ever encountered this same issue ?

Problems with Wifi on iphone 4 after updating ot iOS 5.1

After I update to iOS 5.1 is started having problems with my home wifi.

After the update every thing seems to be running alright after after a day my connection was lost.

When I tried to reconnect I got the message unable to join the network.



I tried the following things:


- Forget network, reconnect: This did not help

- restart iPhone: did not help.

- Reset network settings: did not help.



The next step I tried was to restart my router.

This solved the problem, but after 1 day I have the same issue.


When I go to work there is no problem when I get back home same thing over again.

This is going on ever since I update to iOS 5.1

Before the update I had no problems.



Does anyone have more perment solution.

iPhone 4s iOs 6 data usage problems on Verizon

Last night around 6PM I lifted the usage controls on my teenage cousins iphone 4s. We had never set a data limit for the phone because she only uses it for internet when at home on the wifi network. We only had it on her phone to be able to block unwanted numbers, but the feature also allows customers to set data caps, internet restrictions by age ect.


Prior to last night her usuage was minimal. However, within 6 hrs of the usuage control being lifted suddenly I was notified wed hit 50% of our 6g data plan. In the morning when I woke up I had a text saying wed hit 75% of our usage plan. I logged into Verizon and it indicated she had consumed 4.6g.


I spoke with Verizon and the first reprepresenative told me that this was a known iOs 6 issue for iphones and asked me to check if the phone was using the that operating system. She said if it was Verizon would be giving credits to customers because it was a known issue. I hung up, called my aunt and learned that in fact iOs 6 was installed. She also confirmed that the phone settings had not changed. It was still only using wifi. Verizon data usage remained turned off.


I called Verizon back and spoke with a second representative who then told me that it was not an iOs 6 issue, but just an iPhone 5 issue. She said the previous information given to me was incorrect; it was hardware and not operating system based problem. I then reapplied usage controls and went in to set a data limit, for the first time, and discovered that the iPhones data usage had now reached 5.4g of 6g. I still have 18 days left on my billing cycle and just .6g of data remaining. It seems crazy to me that I should have to set a cap on data usage for a phone using wifi to prevent that phone from maxing out verizon data, but that is what I have done until I can get to the bottom of this


The rep told me to visit Apple for further details. I also googled it and found stories on CNN and TheNextWeb reporting instances where individuals with the iOs 6 on iphone 4s were also experiencing problems, but nothing concrete on how to resolve it.


Can someone please clarify for me what is going on or where I can find a solution to this.


Thank you in advance.

I dont understand nothing about jailbreak, I just did on mine (4.3.5).

Or do I have to unistall Cydia or something?

Thank you!

Problems Restoring iPhone 3GS from Backup with iOS 6.1.3 Install

iOS 7 Bluetooth problems

I have a Prius  and the a steering wheel controls stopped working after updating to iOS 7. I cant play the next or previous song which is pretty annoying because I have to grab my phone and look for the next/previous button while driving! It was working fine with iOS 6.

I believe this is a bug. Anyone else having the same issue?

ios 6 sound problems



I listen a lot to podcasts on my iphone. All worked fine up until a recent update. But this is a very werid problem though.

I use 2 headphones

large sony headphone (MDR-XB700)small logitech earbud UE series

And some loudspeakers


Then a friends large headphones worked fine but his earbud had the same issues


A podcast played on the iphone with the logitech earbud gives me:

hardly any spoken (people talking) sound volumemusic during the podcast very often is loud enough, normal I would saywhen starting the podcast I hear a very short popping sound


The same podcast played on 2 other, non apple phones plays very fine, NO problems


I have reset:

All settingsErase All content and Settings

I have from my Macs itunes:

Restore Backup...Restore phone


I have several times:

turn on and off soundturn on aff equalizerslide ringer and alerts volume up -- shut down iphone and bootupslide ringer and alerts down volume -- shut down iphone and bootuphold down home+on/off button for 10 secs so it rebootsturn on and off Vibrate on Ring, Vibrate on Silent and rebootedturned on and off the Music -- EQ setting, and rebootedturned on and off the Music -- Volume Limit, and rebootednumerous other things that I found here and elsewhere.

All to no avail.


To me it sounds as if the iphone has started to measure how much energy is drawn from the mini-jack port and adjusts some settings. And it adjusts it for spoken words only. Voice control related?


Anyone has tips or an idea how to forward this to Apple HQ?

I suppose they read this and I am more than happy to assit to get this sorted out.



iOS 5.1 3Gs Problems

Since I updated to 5.1 on my iPhone 3Gs, I keep getting problems with the updated OS. I cant download apps, music or books from the iTunes store, its very hit and miss. It is pointless having a pin upon wake up of the phone as all you have to do to get past the pin is by swiping the camera button up to by-pass it. The battery life has dramatically dropped from lasting a couple of days with everyday use to around 9 hours. The signal from the network has dropped from 3 bars on 3G to 4 bars on GPRS, and finally apps keep crashing and exit themselves to the home screen.


I have rang my network (O2UK) and they have said that they have had serveral reports of Apple products having these bugs since the release of 5.1, and saying that nothing has changed in terms of te settings and masts near me, but they advised me to check my network settings and if they are different from what O2s website said (they were the same).


So why are there so many bugs with 5.1? I cant download any apps at all and my battery is worse? Is there any advice that anyone can give me to fix these small bugs or a temp fix until Apple fix them in a future update  :)

Make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active, or try again later.

1. The battery drain problem is worse than before. I lost 1% every 5-10 minutes of normal usage


2. I registered my email account on the settings. Yet, when I opened Mail app, it prompt me to the startup mail setup screen (the one with iCloud, Windows Mail, GMail, etc)


3. I downloaded Sparrow, a mail app. But, it doesnt show anywhere on my homescreen. I also didnt find it on Spotlight Search. And when I go to the appstore, the only button available is OPEN, but it doesnt open when I pressed the button.


Any suggestion? I tried hard reset(home button+power button). It didnt work. And this phone is freshly updated to iOS 6.1.3
