I tried to update my old iPhone 3GS and is giving me a message that it can be activated. This is my old phone and it shouldn't have a line but I Still like to use it as an iPod. What can I do.

Activation issues are almost always the result of a device that has been hacked or jailbroken. If that is the case, no support can be provided here.

    Any warranty you had is void and your ability to get help here or from Apple is forfeit.
    Try Google. We can not assist you per the terms of service.
    It's very likely that your phone is now a brick.

  • The SIM card In my iPhone 5 has been giving me occasional messages that there has been a SIM Failure, there is NO SIM, or that there is an INVALID SIM.  Until today, I was able to restart it with no problem and the SIM card would start up.

    The SIM card In my iPhone 5 has been giving me occasional messages that there has been a SIM Failure, there is NO SIM, or that there is an INVALID SIM.  Until today, I was able to restart it with no problem and the SIM card would start up.  This afternoon the NO SIM message came up and I cannot fix it. What is my next step?  I am traveling in Canada now and it is not convenient to come back to the States just to get a SIM card.
    Thanks,

    Hi,
    Thanks for getting back to me.  How can I initiate Verizon sending me a new SIM card?  I will be here  long enough to receive it if they can send it to me.
    I have been trying to call Verizon Wireless, but they won’t take my call from my Skype account and I don’t have my phone.
    Thanks again,
    Lou

  • TS3212 I just purchased a new iphone 4s and I am trying to load some music from my itues. I am getting a message that says not enough space. I checked my phone and it shows i have 5.1G available. do you know how to fix this problem?

    I just purchased a new iphone 4S and I'm trying to loan some music from itunes. I keep getting a message that says not enough space on my phone. I checked my phone and I have 5.1G available. I deselected all the songs on my itunes to try and get it to sync and I keep getting the same message. Any tips?

    Hey csumner1,
    Thanks for the question. I understand you are receiving a "Not enough free space" alert when attempting to sync your new iPhone 4s. The following article may help to resolve your issue:
    iOS: "Not enough free space" alert when trying to sync
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1503
    Resolution
    Try disconnecting and reconnecting your device, then syncing again to solve this issue.
    Orphaned files may remain on your iOS device if it is physically disconnected while syncing music, podcasts, videos, or photos. This can prevent iTunes from syncing the iOS device on subsequent sync sessions. When this happens, the Capacity indicator in iTunes may report a large amount of "Other" disk usage for the iOS device. To resolve this issue:
    1. Turn off the music or photo sync option in iTunes for the device.
    2. Click Apply to sync the changes to the device.
    3. Turn the music and photo sync options for the device on again.
    4. Click Apply again to try to sync the device to iTunes.
              - If the 'Not enough free space' alert appears, continue to step 5.
    5. Turn off the automatic syncing functions for the iOS device. To do this:
              - Select the iOS device from the iTunes window and click the Summary tab.
              - Deselect "Automatically sync when this device is connected" and select the "Sync only checked songs and videos" checkbox.
              - Click Apply to sync the changes to the device.
              - Reduce the amount of data that is being synced to the device and resync the device. For example, if syncing your Music library exceeds the memory capacity of the device, choose "Selected playlists" to transfer rather than "All songs and playlists" under the Music tab in iTunes.
    If the 'Not enough free space' alert appears, continue to step 6.
    6. Restore using iTunes.
    Thanks,
    Matt M.

  • After latest update wmp plugin is missing in add-ons, but is still correct installed. Reinstalling wont work. What can i do?

    I was lissening to online radio. Firefox needed to update. After the latest update the windows media player plugin dissapeared from the add-on list, while still being installed correct. I reinstalled it, but that didn't work. I replaced/deleted some files in firefox as suggested for similiar problems, but that didn't work either.
    Now I can't play wmp files anymore on firefox.
    I hope u can help me solve this problem.

    No, I dont agree with you! absolutely!
    this is NOT due to the plugin developer, but to Mozilla.
    Mozilla modified the behaviour. Mozilla should to repair the issue! the plugin is NOT blacklisted by mozilla!!! therefore....
    I am worried about your reply.

  • I am running mac osx 10.5.8, but FireFox is giving me a message that it is not compatible with my version of osx and will not let me install. The web site says it is compatible with osx 10.5. Am I missing something?

    I was able to download the current version of FireFox but when I tried to install, I got a message that FireFox is not compatible with my current os. What else should I consider or try doing to get FireFox to work?

    Beginning with Firefox 4, Macs must have an Intel x86 processor (which you do NOT have; yours is a PPC Mac) '''''<u>and</u>''''' OSX 10.5 or higher.

    '''''The good news''''' is that Firefox 3.6.24 still supports OSX 10.4 and Macs with the PPC Mac architecture. '''''The bad news''''' is that support for the Firefox 3.6.x series is likely to end in the first quarter of 2012.

    IF you actually have a 3GS, follow the instructions in the article from which the question was posted and you will be able to update to iOS6.
    If you have a 3G, iOS 4.2.1 is as high as it can go.

    These errors typically occur when security software interferes with the restore and update process. Use the steps to troubleshoot security software issues to resolve this issue. In rare cases, these errors may be a hardware issue. If the errors persist on another computer, the device may need service.
    Also, check your hosts file to verify that it's not blocking iTunes from communicating with the update server. See the steps under the heading "Blocked by configuration (Mac OS X / Windows) > Rebuild network information > Mac OS X > The hosts file may also be blocking the iTunes Store." If you have software used to perform unauthorized modifications to the iOS device, uninstall this software prior to editing the hosts file to prevent that software from automatically modifying the hosts file again on restart.

  • HT201210 i`m trying to update my new iphon with itune. i got a worning no.14 .then i updated apple and tried again but got a massege "iphone not found".all the time there is a serial no. but it says that there is no iphone no.  what am i doing wrong?

    I am trying to update my new iphon 4.at first i got a massege no.14. then i updated apple &tried again but this time got a massege no iphon found. serial no.appears but not a phone no.what should i do?

    Sounds like it's hardware issue. The iPhone warranty is based in the original country of purchase. Since it was bought in Korea you will need to ship the phone to someone you know in Korea to be taken in and then they will have to ship it back to you. The cost of shipping will be at your expense.

  • I don't have the up to date system requirements to run iCloud on my mac but would still like to access my email on my mac.  I think I need to update my settings, but am not sure what to do.  Can anyone help.  thanks

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    If you haven't done so already you need to migrate your mail account to iCloud first and do so IMMEDIATELY at the website Move
    Then
    Delete your mail account from Mail preferences and set it up again using the Mail Server Information.
    Some users have apparently encountered issues using this information in pre-Lion set ups (I haven't), Roger Wilmut has kindly provided instructions for those who find themselves with this problem.
    Entering iCloud email settings manually in Snow Leopard or Leopard
    Entering iCloud email settings manually in Tiger
