TechCrunch posted a solution today that applies to this problem, I think.
Go to: https://supportprofile.apple.com/MySupportProfile.do
Click your old iPhone and "unregister" it.

  • 3g phone ringer all the way up but very faint, all sounds are very faint or none at all.  Even the click when turning off is bearly audible.  Is there a fix for this?

    My phone volume has almost disappeared.  Screen clicks, ringer all of it is bearly audible, sometimes not at all.  Everything is on, ringer volume turned all the way up.  Is there a fix for this on the iphone 3G?

    I am simply lookig for some help not an argument.  I am not an RF specialist however have setup a few wireless networks in my tenure at Wynn Resorts.  I fully agree that wireless networking is an art and a science however the powers that be in Network Land have toughted wireless networking is the easiest and quickest way to get two computers to talk with one another.  As I previously said I have already turned one (1) MBP in for this problem and Apple decided to replace it because they could not fix the problem with my particular MBP.  This MBP was running Leopard when the problems started
    I am having a hard time believeing that there are several other devicces in my home that depend on a wireless network to operate and my MBP is the only one having an issue.  I took this a step further and decided to see what would happen if I tried to connect wirelessly via Fusion.  In Windows 7 I am able to print and scan to my hearts content without any issues.  I am able to browse the internet as much as I want.  I close Fusion and try to connect to my printer via wireless and nothing.
    In order to get Apple to help do I need to get a Network Analyzer and capture packets when I have these problems?  Out of the 1000 + posts is there a consolidation of which answer is the best?  BTW I am accessing the internet via a wireless connection using Fusion and Windows 7.
    In response to Linc's comments, I will look at the router specifications however I did not qualify that these devices are not using the wireless connection at the same time.  Right now I would guess there are maybe two (2) or three (3) at the most that are actively transmitting / receiving information. --  Thanks

  • After loading the 1.1 update my nano turns off after 60 seconds.  is there a fix for this?

    After loading the 1.1 update for my nano ipod my nano shuts down after playing the music for 60 seconds.  Is anyone else having this problem and is there a fix for it?  Very frustrating to have to keep hitting the sleep/wake button and then play to make the music start again during my workout.

    You have probably fixed the problem by now, but I also just bought a Nano and it was very frustrating with the music shutting off before the first half a dozen bars of the song.  I rang Apple and they sent me this page.... (if anyone else needs help)
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3700?viewlocale=en_US
    All it was that I hadn't pushed the headphones in until they were flush up against the Nano.
    Thanks Apple!

  • I upgraded my iPad 2 to iOS8 and keep getting knocked off of cellular data. Is there a fix for this? Can  I downgrade back to iOS7?

    I recently upgraded the software on my iPad 2 to iOS8.02. Since upgrading the iPad is running slower and choppier, with several apps no longer working. In addition, it keeps knocking me off my cellular data and showing no service. Is there any fix for this, or can I downgrade the iOS back to 7?

    I'm sorry, but Apple does not provide a downgrade path for iOS. Because downgrading is unsupported by Apple we cannot discuss it on these forums.
    You may leave comments at Apple Feedback.

  • I've been texting my friend with iMessage with wifi on and all of a sudden it changed to text message and won't let me send messages. My wifi is still on and working but it won't switch back to iMessage. Please help

    I've been texting my friend with iMessage with wifi on and all of a sudden it changed to text message and won't let me send messages. My wifi is still on and working but it won't switch back to iMessage. Please help

    What I recommend you try doing first is to turn iMessage off then back on.  If that doesn't work, make sure that your Apple ID and password are correct.  If everything seems correct and you still can't send out messages using iMessage instead of text message, I think you should either try calling AppleCare at 1-800-MY-IPHONE (1-800-694-7466) and/or scheduling an appointment at the Genius Bar at an Apple Store (that is, if there's one close to you).
    Hope this helps!

  • HT1688 Since I've upgraded the IOS to 7.0.2 on my iPhone 5, my phone will randomly restart itself.  Is there a fix for this?

    Since I've upgraded the IOS to 7.0.2 on my iPhone 5, my phone will randomly restart itself.  Is there a fix for this?

    Howdy there Tuna241,
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    It sounds like your iPhone is restarting unexpectedly after the update to iOS 7.0.2.
    I recommend the steps outlined in the article named:
    iPhone: Hardware troubleshooting
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2802
    Will not turn on, will not turn on unless connected to power, or unexpected power off
    Verify that the Sleep/Wake button functions. If it does not function, inspect it for signs of damage. If the button is damaged or is not functioning when pressed, seek service.
    Check if a Liquid Contact Indicator (LCI) is activated or there are signs of corrosion. Learn about LCIsand corrosion.
    Connect the iPhone to the iPhone's USB power adapter and let it charge for at least ten minutes.
    After at least 30 minutes, if:
    The home screen appears: The iPhone should be working. Update to the latest version of iOS if necessary. Continue charging it until it is completely charged and you see this battery icon in the upper-right corner of the screen . Then unplug the phone from power. If it immediately turns off, seek service.
    The low-battery image appears, even after the phone has charged for at least 20 minutes: See "iPhone displays the low-battery image and is unresponsive" symptom in this article.
    Something other than the Home screen or Low Battery image appears, continue with this article for further troubleshooting steps.
    If the iPhone did not turn on, reset it while connected to the iPhone USB power adapter.
    If the display turns on, go to step 4.
    If the display remains black, go to next step.
    Connect the iPhone to a computer and open iTunes. If iTunes recognizes the iPhone and indicates that it is in recovery mode, attempt to restore the iPhone. If the iPhone doesn't appear in iTunes or if you have difficulties in restoring the iPhone, see this article for further assistance.
    If restoring the iPhone resolved the issue, go to step 4. If restoring the iPhone did not solve the issue, seek service.
    Regards,
    Sterling

  • I have an I Pad 1 with 64 gigs. It constantly drops me off the Internet for no apparent reason. Is there any fix for this problem?

    My I Pad 1 constantly drops me off the Internet and programs. Is there any fix for this problem?  It started after the last update and continues to get worse.
    Doug

    First, try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.

  • I have just updated to Lion and now my folders no longer show number of items on the bottom. Is there a fix for this?

    I have just updated to Lion and now my folders no longer show number of items on the bottom. Is there a fix for this? I allways found that handy. Now I have to click on an icon on the top, This is a backward step if that is now the only way to see the number of items. Am I missing something obvious?

    In the good old days of Snow Leopard, an open Finder folder had a border along the bottom of the window which could show the number of items in that window and the total available space on the hard disk or partition that folder resides on. That bottom border is gone in Lion and those two bits of information are gone with it. Is that what you're talking about? If so, I'd like to learn how to get it back too and "Show Item Info" is not the way.

    Hello Turintest2,
    I am having a similar problem.  I have over 4000 songs giving me this error.  I certainily don't want to go in one by one and find them.  I know you wrote a script for Windows but I am a Mac user.  Is there a fix for me?  Here is the info on where the song is currently (used by doing the get info)
    Here's a shot of my preferences:
    Just FYI, I know that apparently iTunes is looking for this music in the trash.  However, if I go here:
    Then I find the music there as well.  (Which is where it is in my preferences.)
    Please help!  I don't want to have to go through over 4000 songs and update them one by one.

  • Hi, Just bought an ipod classic 160gb and i notice that when I turn the volume down all the way, music is still heard, i.e. I cannot turn it down lower than a certain volume. Is there a fix for this? Thanks

    I've got a feeling that's the way it is. I know that if I turn the volume down all the way, I can still hear the music very softly -- which is great for listening when I have a migraine!

  • When I go through the 'import favorites' from Internet Explorer, everything seems to progress correctly. However, when I click on Bokkmarks, there is no option in the menu for accessing the imported items form EI. Is there a fix for this?

    When I go through the 'import favorites' from Internet Explorer, everything seems to progress correctly. However, when I click on Bokkmarks, there is no option in the menu for accessing the imported items form EI. Why would this option be missing and is there a fix for this?

    Hello Nigel.
    Are you sure the Bookmarks you important are nowhere to be found? They should be stored in your bookmark manager, somewhere. To access the bookmark manager, go into ''Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks...''. Try searching there.
    You can change their place from there too.

    Hey Tlabounty,
    Thanks for the question. I understand you are experiencing issues with the microphone on your iPhone 5. To troubleshoot this issue, you may find the information in this article helpful:
    iPhone: Microphone issues
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts5183
    Note that speakerphone and regular calls utilize seperate microphones on the device. It sounds like you have isolated the issue. Furthermore, if you determine that the issue is hardware related, the following resource may help you get started with the service process:
