Help...Iphone 5c settings changed by themselves

I have an iPhone5c and today my settings changed automatically by themselves and when I have attempted to change them back they will not stick.
Specifically my battery percentage has disappeared and my message settings have changed as well. I had my settings to where there would be no message preview but now there is a preview and I am unable to change them back when I select those options. I change the setting back to how it was but then it reverts to how it automatically changed.
Can someone please assist me with how to fix this!? Aside from paying $30 or making an appointment, I was advised this was my only option.
Thank you in advance!

Your profile says you are using IOS 8.0.2?
You can update to the latest IOS 8.1.1.
As for settings not sticking:
Check if you have Restrictions set for those items.
Note: you need to enable Restriction to change/see what is set.

  • IPhone 6 settings changed

    Hi Everyone, wonder if someone can help me please. My iPhone 6 settings have suddenly changed - the battery percentage no longer displays and the messages have suddenly started giving me previews - neither will let me change them back to how they were - any ideas please?

    Hi sambridgewater,
    Lets get those settings the way you want them. First, for the battery percentage, go to Settings > General > Usage and toggle on Battery Percentage to take care of that. For the second, go to Settings > Notification Center and scroll down to Messages and you should see an option to turn off the previews so they do not show up when you get a message.
    Show battery percentage on your iPhone or iPad

  • IMAP Settings changing by themselves

    I have setup IMAP accounts in Mail 3.6 (Leopard 10.5.7). Due to constraints of server space, I have the settings to NOT store Drafts, Sent, Junk or Trash on the server, but to store them on the local machine. Since the Inbox is the most important thing for iPhone access and not the sent stuff, it helps out in saving space since the ISP only allows 100 MB. Unfortunately, I'm having issue that as soon as I send, mark something Junk or save a draft, the settings mysteriously change back to storing everything on the server. I have to manually open the account prefs, change it back and then copy those messages off the server to the appropriate folders. It seems to stabilize after about 5 times of doing this, but I'm upgrading a whole office of computers to Leopard and all of their Mail apps are doing this over and over. Anyone have tips or work-arounds for this?
    Thanks!

    The IMAP protocol is designed to keep the mail server and your mail client in sycnhronization with each other at all times, regardless of where you access your email. So if you don't want or need that, change the accounts to POP accounts; that is, setup new POP accounts for each email address, import the existing mail from the IMAP accounts into them, and then delete the IMAP accounts.
    But even doing that, when you Send email, it will be stored on the mail server, unless you manually delete it; and when you receive Junk mail online in the web client, it will be stored on the server unless you have it designated to go to the Trash and be deleted automatically.

  • HELP! Account settings changed by me?

    I was trying to rename my little house icon to something else. I highlighted it, click Get Info and then under Name and Extension, changed the name.
    Went on working for a few minutes and all apps open would say, the original file is lost and needs to be resaved.
    I instantly knew I screwed up. I switched the name back, but go the error that "That name is already in use." So, I shut down, restarted and though the name is now back to what it was, I'm presented with a new desktop and all my settings are now default, I can't connect to my network etc.
    On my hd, under users, I see a new folder with the original desktop stuff. So, the house icon is named the original "kj" but is all default. The other Folder is called "Kellyj" and it's only a normal folder icon but inside there is a desktop folder with all my usual stuff.
    I only have one user listed in the Accounts at system prefs but now I have this new desktop where everything is new!
    I just want to restore everything... so I want the stuff in the KellyJ folder to be the default desktop items, bookmarks, files, network shortcuts etc.
    What can I do?

    Hi Kelly, follow the steps here to restore your Home folder.

  • About:config settings change by themselves when switching between windows/linux on dual-boot machine with profile shared between OSs

    I dual-boot ubuntu and windows7, and have set up firefox to use the same profile data when running under either OS. This works great, except:
    (1) each time I switch OSs and start firefox, it runs the "checking add-on compatibility" test (which is a minor annoyance)
    (2) each time I start firefox in ubuntu after recently using it under windows, the about:config setting "browser.backspace.action" gets reset from my preferred setting (0) to the default setting (2).
    How can I prevent these two things from happening?

    Maybe it is better to use separate profiles for each OS and create symlinks or hard links to the sqlite databases that you want to share.
    Your Linux profile may be using extensions (e.g. Ubuntu Firefox Modifications) that modify specific settings and in such a case you can't really prevent this.<br />
    You can use a user.js file to initialize specific prefs on each start, but that makes it impossible to make changes on the about:config page that last the current session and you need to remember which prefs are affected.

  • Location settings change by themselves

    I am trying to set up several "locations" so I can quickly change configurations (mostly between being wired-only or wireless-only to I can test various devices).
    For example, I have locations "Automatic" (where Ethernet and Wireless are enabled), "Ethernet 192.168.1.12 only," and "Wireless only." I set up one location, then a second, and so on, each time clicking "Apply" and locking the changes. However, the settings do not stick. For example, in the Ethernet-only locations, I have turned off Airport, but after turning on Airport in a different location, Airport might spontaneously come on in the Ethernet location. Often, the location I have selected in the popup menu *changes by itself* as I try to enable or disable services in some other location! It's spooky.
    In summary, I cannot get my location settings to stick. They change after I have Applied and Locked them, and sometimes the location itself changes on its own.
    I have searched this group, and found nobody else describing this problem.
    What's going on? How can I get the location settings to stick?

    I too can't get my network settings to "stick".
    I assumed that Location Services simply couldn't do that. But it makes so much sense to have location services control the network & printer settings (and even use the network the Mac can see to prompt a change in location).
    So I'll add my voice to your question.
    Anyone know if location services can affect network settings?

  • UDF Settings Change By Themselves

    Hello,
    We have had cases where it seems like our UDF setting change by itself.  We have tried to set our UDF so that the same UDF's appear for each user.  The way we made this change is in the UDF Settings is we created a category called Hidden.  We select Hidden for everything we do not want to see -- which is most of the UDF options.  Then on the screen itself we select General so we only see those UDF's that we want to see.
    After making this change for each individual user, the next day we may go back and find that for one user one or two of the fields that were originally marked as Hidden are now marked as General and can be viewed on the screen?!
    Why is this happening!!
    Any ideas would be very much appreciated -- very frustrating!
    Thanks,
    Mike

    What key combinations could accidentally do this? 
    We created a category in the UDF other than General called Hidden. We then selected Hidden as their category in the Settings.  Then selected General in the main screen to view only those we wanted to see.
    Any other suggestions on how we could make sure people don't change the UDF?  Is there any other possibility as to why sometimes UDF's we do not want shown all of a sudden show up?
    Thanks,
    Mike

  • Mail SSL settings changing by themselves

    So, i have this problem, which very likely will end up with me putting my Macbook air under the sledgehammer by the end of this week if not solved.
    On one of my account, the SSL is needed for my mail to work properly, i tick off the SSL option, and save the chages, then the mails come in as normal, but during the day, it removes itself again, and mails get stuck again, indicated by the triangular ! sign.
    What is wrong, and how do i save my Mackbook from the sledgehammer?
    Thanks!

    Open Mail and Mail Preferences window. Go to Accounts button and highlight your mail account that you have a problem with. Go to Advanced tab and disable option Automatically detect and maintain account settings and enabled option Allow insecure authentication. Do the same thing for your Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) settings.

    Changing devices is no reason to create a new Apple ID.
    All content purchased from iTunes is permanently linked to the Apple ID it was purchased with.
    To update apps purchased with the old ID, you MUST sign in with that Apple ID.

  • HT4557 I don't have this on my iPhone 4 = "Settings iPod".  Help!

    I'm trying to set up Home Sharing on my iPhone 4.  The instructions say = "On your iPhone, tap Settings > iPod".  Why would a setting for iPod be on my iPhone?  If it should be there, I can't find it.  I'm totally confused and frustrated with trying to set up Home Sharing.  Would appreciate some help please.

    On iOS 5/5.0.1/5.1 it will appear as Music instead of iPod, as Music and Vidoes now have separate applications.
    So Settings > Music now.

  • If I turned off picture backup on iPhone, is it possible to restore the pictures saved before the settings change?

    Hi,
    Anyone know if iCloud keeps older backups?
    If I turned off picture backup on iPhone, is it possible to restore the pictures saved before the settings change?
    Thanks.

    No. but restoring from backup will if hey are in a backup
    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: How to back up     
    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
    You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store        

  • GMail.  Changed password on PC email account, and did same on IPhone 4 Settings for Gmail.  App opens but tells me username or password for Gmail is incorrect.  Have ensured both are correct...still no access

    GMail.  Changed password on PC email account, and did same on IPhone 4 Settings for Gmail.  App opens but tells me username or password for Gmail is incorrect.  Have ensured both are correct...still no access

    If you have 2-step verification set up for your gmail account, you will need to generate an application-specific password for your iphone applications (because those apps apparently don't support 2-step verification).
    Go into your google account, look in accounts/security/2-step verification, there is a link called "Manage your application specific passwords"   Use that to generate a special password for your iphone apps and use that instead of your usual gmail password on your phone.
