HT1338 Is the only way to get a software update through the Apple Store where you have to give a credit card?  I thought system updates are free.  I don't want to leave a credit card number with Apple.

This may also help. Someone in another thread typed the above link only works if you haven't established your account, but when I just checked my account the "None" button was there?:

  • My phone goes off in any time of the day and the only way to get it back is through pressing and holding of Home and Sleep button together

    Like I said in the subject line:
    My brand new iPhone 4S/32Gb goes off in any time of the day and the only way to get it back to live is through pressing and holding of the Home and Sleep button together for 5-10 seconds.
    Does anybody have that kind of problem as well?
    Thank you.

    I restored it on I tunes as well did something on the phone. The lastest seems to have helped it but I haven't used it much yet!  Thanks for the help & I'll let you know!

  • Is email the only way to get iPhoto pictures back to the iPhone?

    I inadvertently pressed "delete photos from iPhone after import" and now I have NO photos on my iPhone anymore...
    Is there I way to select a bunch of photos and drag and drop them over to the iPhone when it's connected to my Mac?
    I've seen that you can email pictures to yourself, but that seems arduous....

    What did you use for the import - iPhoto?
    If so, you can create and make use of iPhoto albums for select photos in your iPhoto library - similar to creating an iTunes playlist.
    Under the Photos tab for your iPhone sync preferences, select Sync Photos with iPhoto. Below choose selected albums followed by selecting the iPhoto albums you want transferred to your iPhone in the window below followed by a sync.
    This info is available in the iPhone user guide, which can be downloaded from Apple's website as a PDF file, and the user guide is available on your iPhone as a Safari bookmark. I suggest that you glance through the user guide at least.

  • HT1338 why does the only way to get on wireless interent is airport?

    Why does the only way to get on wireless interent is airport?

    Airport is the trade name Apple uses for WiFi.  The Mac built-in WiFi hardware is called Airport.  The Apple manufactured WiFi base station(s) router are called Airport Extreme and Airport Express (the Apple Time Capsule is also a WiFi base station/router).
    A Mac can connet to other manufactures WiFi base stations.
    You can also connect to a WiFi bridging device via ethernet and get WiFi access that way, although BDAqua's suggestion of a USB WiFi device might make more sense if it is a Mac laptop.
    If you are NOT talking about WiFi, and perhaps talking about using the cell phone cellular network, then you can use Bluetooth to pair your Mac with a cell phone that has the ability to act as a cellular modem for your Mac, you can get a MiFi device that acts as a local WiFi base stations and connects to the Cellular network, and you can get cellular USB devices that can provide cellular connections for the Mac.

  • Is the only way to get your money back for unauthorised purchases to go thru the lengthy email customer support process?

    I want my money back and I want it now. Why doesn't apple have a phone number for urgent account problems? i got an overdrawn fee from my bank, I checked the transactions and found apple iTunes charged me 11 times in one day with the total amount being over $170.00!!!!! The only purchases I made that day were a few $1.29 inapp purchases. How do I get my money back??? And why don't they have a phone number you can contact. This is an urgent problem because not only have they charged me over $170 & Ive got a $30 overdrawn fee there are MORE transactions from apple on my bank account that are "pending". These transactions are of a similar amount & they are not for anything I have purchased! i have been forced to cancel my credit card to stop apple from doing anymore but I want my money back!

    Thanks but unfortunately I don't have that option (I'm im Australia) so this will be day 8 that apple have my money without authorisation. The amount has now increased due to the transactions that were pending prior to me cancelling my credit card. The total is now over $300 including the overdrawn fee. It is beyond comprehension that a company the size of apple doesn't have a *real* customer service dept that handle these types of *real* problems immediately via phone contact but I guess that's the point isn't it? If we want to use the apps they provide thru their services and devices we have no choice but to put up with their primitive third world service. I sent them an email via the link you provided 4 days ago. There is no excuse for me to be STILL waiting for this problem to be resolved - none whatsoever, it is disgusting. Thanks for responding I had a feeling that was the only way to get this resolved, only it is so unbelievable I had to make sure.

  • I am having trouble with computer freezing, spinning wheel.  The only way to get out is to manually shut off computer and reboot.

    The issue usually occurs when computer goes into the screensaver mode.  When this happens, none of the keys are opperable and the round wheel/ball just continues to spin.  The only resolve is to manually shut down the computer witht the button on back of the monitor/hard drive.  Not sure if this is bad for the computer to shut down this way or not.

    I starting having this "colored spinning wheel" problem too! It started about two weeks ago and like the others, every time I go into my Yahoo mail, I get the spinning-wheel and the only way out is to "X" out of the site. Sometimes I can make it through a few notes, other times the problem starts as soon as I click on the first note. I searched google a few days ago and saw a response to this problem that said I should "uncheck" the 3 items in the "Auto-fill" preferences in Safari (Safari-Preferences-Autofill) and that should help. It did not. I also went in and deleted cookies, cache and history, but that didn't work either, or if it did, it only took a few clicks to experience the problem again. One of the times I went in to delete cookies I noticed over 100 cookies and other website data stored and I had only been on perhaps 2 or 3 sites (CNN, google and yahoo and perhaps Apple), and I never click on the adds. Don't know if there's any significance to this but I thought that was an awful lot of "cookies" for just a few clicks after previously deleting cookies. Also, I believe I have the latest version of Yahoo mail. I actually have 2 Yahoo accounts and the spinning wheel is a problem with both of them, same for my wife. Any help would be very much appreciated.
    I have a MacBook Pro purchased last December with Snow Leopard 10.6.8, Safari version 5.1, an Intel core i5 processor, 4 GB of memory and a 320 GB HD with very little loaded on it.  

  • It is unclear the advantage to pre-ordering the new iPhone 5. What I have read is that it will ship on the 21st? If so the only way to get one on the 21st is go stand in line. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    It is unclear the advantage to pre-ordering the new iPhone 5. What I have read is that it will ship on the 21st if you pre-order? If so the only way to get one on the 21st is go stand in line. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    if you don't have time to stand in line or don't want to risk getting there too late and leaving empty handed from the apple store preordering will guarantee you one but possibly in a slightly longer timeframe
