After I upgraded my iphone 4 with the ios 7.1.1 it locks up sending text messages.  It will send a few, then mid conversation I will have to turn my phone off and back on, sometimes a few times, before it will allow me to send or receive messages again.

After I upgraded my Iphone 4 with the ios 7.1.1 it locks up while sending text messages.  I can usually send a few then will have to restart my phone(often more than once) to get it to send and receive messages again.  I have done a back up and complete reset and that has not fixed the problem.    Have been told that the ios 7.1.1 just isn't compatible with the Iphone 4 so that's why it is locking up so often, but I am hoping someone else may have a better answer since it can't be undone.  Thanks!

7.1.1 is certainly compatible with the iPhone 4. Just try a reset first.
Close all open apps by double-tapping the home button, then swiping up and off the screen with the app window (not the smaller icon).
Reset your device: hold down the home button along with the sleep/wake button until the screen goes black and you see the Apple, then let go. (No data loss)

  • When working in the basement for an extended period I get SOS message and have to turn my phone off and on before I can use it is this normal

    When working in the basement for an extended period I get SOS message and have to turn my phone off and on before I can use it is this normal

    when the phone detects the Optus network, this will automatically go out of the SOS mode.
    The SOS mode allows you to call SOS numbers like 911 or 112 even if there is no network coverage.
    What it does it tap to the next available carrier (regardless if this is your home carrier or not) to have the emergency call pushed through)

  • My 4s has no sound on most outgoing calls. i constantly have to turn my phone off and on more than once a day to get it to work. how can i get this fixed?

    My 4s has no sound on most of the outgoing calls i make. It will ring the other phone I am calling but I cannot hear it nor can they hear me when they answer. Its just dead air but my phone timer is in use. How can this be corrected?

    It's very possible that you have stuff running in the background that you don't even realize you have running. For example the default is for all notifications to be on and you usually need few to none of them.
    That said, while an iPad can run warm, too hot to handle isn't right. ALso you should get about 10 hours....depending on what you're doing of course. If you're doing processor intensive stuff, like gaming and videos it can drain faster and generate more heat.
    I would say if you have an apple store near by, make an appointment and have them check it out. If the issue is due to what they determine to be manufacturer's defects then it could fall under the warranty. But that's up to the store to determine.

  • TS1702 Hi, I have just tried downloading Facebook app on, but the app store has frozen and I can't do anything on the screen. Shall I just try turning it all off and back on again? Thanks

    Hi, I have just tried downloading the Facebook app, but the app store has frozen. It will not let me click on anything. Shall I try turning it all off and back on again? Or is there something else I need to do.
    Thanks, Rebecca

    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.

  • TouchID for App Store purchases doesn't work after turning phone off and back on?

    TouchID for unlocking my iPhone 5s works 99.9% of the time.  It's fantastic.  However, using it to authorize App Store purchases, NOT in-app purchases, is less fantastic.  In my case, it seems like every time I turn my phone off and back on, the phone forgets it's can use TouchID to authorize app purchases.  I have to go into Settings -> General -> Passcode & Fingerprint -> (enter my passcode) -> Fingerprints -> iTunes & App Store, and turn that off.  Then I have to turn it back on and enter my Apple ID password.  Not exactly a quick procedure.  The good news is that once I turn it back on, it works like it's supposed to until I turn my phone off and back on again.  If it can remember to use TouchID for unlocking the phone, why can't it remember to use TouchID for authorizing App Store stuff?  Am I missing something?
    Anyone else experiencing the same thing and/or have a solution?  Thanks!

    I don't have any restrictions set on my phone at all.

    After having upgraded my iPhone 4S to iOS 7.0.2, I can not turn on Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. After trying various tricks I found via online forums such as software reset, enable Airplane mode, and resetting the network settings, I have now also completed reset of the phone WITHOUT success. Is there something more to it? If not learn hardly be any more iPhone for me. Really disappointed. Grateful for help!

    If you have tried all of the steps in this support document http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1559 and have completed all of the user troubleshooting, restart, reset, restore from backup, restore as new, then make an appointment with the Apple store to have the hardware checked.

  • TS2634 My problem - when syncing and error messages  comes up:  iTunes could not sync calendars to the iPhone because an error occurred while margin data."  I've tried turning the phone off and back on, & tried both USB ports but get the same thing.  What

    My problem - when syncing and error messages  comes up:  iTunes could not sync calendars to the iPhone because an error occurred while margin data."  I've tried turning the phone off and back on, & tried both USB ports but get the same thing.  What can I do next since it doesn't give me even one clue as to what the error would be?

    Before I started to resync calendars one by one as suggested in the troubleshooting article, I remembered something that came up in a sync when I first attempted :  a 'which one do you want to keep' message about a repeating calendar event, which came up with three options, one from Calendar, and two from iCal on the phone.  I deleted that event, then went through the calendar resync one by one, and all seems OK now.
    In Music there is a way to find 'ghost' items that show up as grayed-out on the menus, so that you can try to reassociate or delete them.  It would be nice to have a similar way to work with Calendar!
    Thanks for pointing me to the right article.

  • I have a Macbook with OS X 10.5.8. I am unable to use my iPhone with the iOS 6 upgrade on iTunes.

    I have a Macbook with OS X 10.5.8. I am unable to use my iPhone with the iOS 6 upgrade on iTunes.  Apparently I cannot downgrade to iOS 5 on my iPhone. Please tell me I don't have to pay anything to be able to use my products......

    Which version of iTunes?
    iTunes 10.6.3 - http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1575
    Unless this is a new iPhone 5 I believe the older ones will work with iOS6 and iTunes 10.6.3.  If it won't, you will need to upgrade operating system version.

  • I just "upgraded" my iPhone with the new software. As a low vision person, your phone was always previously helpful. I now discover that I cannot use the phone easily. The font has been changed to a very narrow typeface and the greyscale has been altered

    I just "upgraded" my iPhone with the new software. As a low vision person, your phone was always previously helpful. I now discover that I cannot use the phone easily. The font has been changed to a very narrow typeface and the greyscale has been altered to reduce contrast. The background is now grey as well rather than white. The accessibility options permit only three choices. First, increase type size. With the the low greyscale, thin typeface, increasing type size makes it HARDER to read. There is no option for contrast enhancement. Third, the background switch options suffers from the same deficit as the white background. The third choice is to enhance brightness but without the option to change contrast, this is useless. Am I missing something? Can this be fixed? How? When? Are you planning a similar negative "update"/change to other devices?

    I am having the same problem. I have gone through every setting, set the bold font, contrast, larger font....everything I could find in any post to try and help - and between the new color scheme that makes it virtually impossible to use the pictures of my grandchildren as background (the picture colors now become the theme colors - which now match the colors of many of the "flat" icons...) I am finding the phone very difficult to use--espeically things like the calendar which has now become very hard to "see" and use. If I can't revert this thing to iOS6, I may have to get a different phone.

  • When I try to open my iTunes on my iPhone 4S it shuts off right away. Ho do I fix this? I have already turned my phone on and off a bunch of times

    Every time I try to open my iTunes app on my iphone 4 s it opens but then shuts down right away. I have already turned my phone on and off and did the reset thing by pushing the home and sleep button together and I hooked up my phone to my computers to update and none of these have worked. What works? Does anyone know?  Thanks

    Hi
    I've got a similar problem.  iTunes v10.2 worked fine, but when I tried to update it to 10.5 I got a 'Bonjour' error.  I eventually solved that but I still couldn't upgrade to 10.5, so I deleted every single Apple, Quicktime, iTunes, etc file on my PC using Revo Unistaller (because the normal Windows Add/Delete programs wouldn't work) but now, when I install the latest iTunes version from scratch (on XP SP3), it says: "the installer encountered errors before it could be configured.... your system has not been modified" 
    Any ideas?

    Try this First...
    Press and Hold the Sleep/Wake Button and the Home Button at the Same Time...
    Wait for the Apple logo to Appear...
    Usually takes about 15 - 20 Seconds... ( But can take Longer...)
    Release the Buttons...

  • I've paid my past due bill, and turned the phone off and back on, why isn't my service restored?

    I've paid my past due bill, and turned the phone off and back on, why isn't my service restored?

    How long ago did you pay the bill? Has the payment cleared? It may take up to a couple of hours after the payment clears until service is restored.
    Unless you are in the area that is having service issues. There is an area where service is down.

  • I turned my phone off and won't turn back on or do anything

    I turned my phone off and won't turn back on or do anything

    Plug in to a wall outlet and be sure it has some charge, then check http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3281 and if that doesn't help, a reboot by holding both the power and home buttons until the apple logo appears, should take about 10-15 seconds, and if that doesn't work, visit an Apple store genius bar for testing by the techs.
