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.

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,

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.

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 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 ?

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.

Can I upgrade my jailbroked iPhone 3GS to iOS 5 with no problems

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

When the new iOS 5 comes out will I be able to just click the upgrade button on iTunes with no problems?

Or do I have to unistall Cydia or something?


Sorry if its a noob question, I just wanted to be sure before doing this.


Thank you!

Problems Restoring iPhone 3GS from Backup with iOS 6.1.3 Install

I have just updated the operating system on my iPhone 3GS to iOS 6.1.3.  iTunes successfully updated my calendar and contacts.  It does not seem able to restore my apps, music or photos from backup.  Would anyone have any suggestions on what to do?

IoS 5.1 Issue anyone else having same problems

So ever since I updated to IoS 5.1 my Iphone 4 has been having 2 new issues that I have no clue how to solve.  I never had any issues with this in any previous software update and Have owned and used these products for 10 previous months


1.  I cannot open my camera from the home screen.  The icon is there but when you click on it it shakes and starts to open up but than slides down back to the home screen.  I have tried closing the camera app resetting my phone but nothing seems to fix it.   I can still open up the camera regularly by unlocking the phone first and than going to the camera app.  But the camera button on the home screen just doesnt work for me anymore.  I know with 5.1 they made it where it wont disappearing from the home screen so my guess is the issue must be related to that somehow.


2.  I cannot use my Iphone on Ihome as a alarm clock anymore.  Whenever I plug in the iphone it will start charging the iphone but than I get message saying this accesory is not supported for iphone.  It will still play any music on my ipod through the iphone regularly despite this message.  But the alarm function using a ihome playlist  will not work anymore and I keep getting that stupid beeping alarm waking me up in the morning instead of my music.  The only reason I bought this dock was to use it as a alarm clock. which doesnt seem to be working anymore since the software update.  I think this is related to a new docking isssue with the software update but not postive. 



If anyone else is having the same issues or has found any solutions to these issues please share your thoughts. 



IOS 5.0.1 upgrade problems

HI there


I need some help after trying to upgrade my iphone 3gs to 5.0.1. I am unable to activate my iphone.


Went through all downloads / upgrades / restores etc. but when the phone started up I could get no service, although the wireless connection can be obtained. On Itunes the message no sim card inserted is received, (but there is, and have reseated this several times) the phone says the activation server is temporarily unavailable.


To summarise, I have gone from a fully working handset on 4.3.3 to one that is completely unusable now ! Before attempting this I managed to upgrade my Ipad  successfully, so am not sure what has happened here.


Please could anyone suggest anything ?

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  :)

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?

Anyone still having wifi problems with iOS 6.01 on 4s

I have a iphone 4s, every since the upgrade to ios 6.0 and 6.01 my wifi only works at my home as I have a newer router. If I go anyplace else it does not work. All the free wifi spots I used to go to Starbucks, Dunckin Donuts, and also at my job do not work anymore. It wont hold the wifi connection for more than a few seconds. As soon as I enter a wifi password it holds for a second or two than switches right back to 3g.


Whatever apple did with the ios 6 really screwed things up. I thought 6.01 would fix the problem but no, in fact its worse. I know this does not affect all iphone 4ss as my son just got a new 4s and he doesnt have the problem.


Oh Ive tried all the usual fixes, nothing works. Ive been an apple guy since the company started, this is really pathetic on Apples part. Losing faith in what was once a great company.




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.



Just updated to iOS 6.1.3 Got a few problems

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

iOS 6.1 iMessage problems not the usual though

Since I upgraded my iPhone 4S to iOS 6.1, every message that is generated outside of the messages app is being sent as an iMessage, regardless of the recipient. This obviously fails when you try to, for example, send a picture to someone with a non iOS device, because the phone tries to send it as an iMessage and it just fails. I then have to go into the messages app and elect to resend the iMessage as an SMS. The same thing happens when I ask Siri to text someone. Has anyone else experienced this issue?
