I recently had to send my old iPhone back and get a new one. When I did, I simply did a restore and backup with my computer. When I did that, my iMessage between my iPhone and iPad are no longer synced. No matter how many times I went to settings, messages and adjusted it, my iPad and iPhone recognize when I send a message out but not when I received a message from another IMessage user to my iPhone. My iPad simply doesn't get those messages. HELP!!!!

If it's corrupt, generally it would be lost.
However, there is third-party software out there that can retrieve some of the data, those of which however I could not recommend as I have never done so myself.
Also, if the old 4S was running a more recent software version than the current 4S, that may cause the issue however usually iTunes tells you exactly that.
Good luck in retrieving that information.

  • Retrieving old serial number or getting a new one

    I got a new computer and after doing a data transfer logic express 8 is asking me for my serial number again. I can't find the box where the number is located on it. Does anyone know how I can retrieve my this number or get a new one.

    Well, I'm sure if you take it down to the apple store, or email a representative, they can give you a new serial number.

  • My iphone and ipad are not syncing my Outlook diary

    When I sync my iPhone and iPad Air using iTunes (12.1.1.4) on Windows 8.1 and have ticked the "Sync calendars with Outlook" box on "Info" on both, the calendars are NOT synced. Is there some magical trick I am missing here?

    Howdy John Mcewen,
    Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities.
    If your Outlook calendar is not being synced to your iOS devices even though the option is selected in iTunes, then I'd like you to please follow the troubleshooting in the article below.

  • Ios phone and Ipad are not syncing with each other

    Both devices are set up to sync with same icloud account. ios phone is sending imessages from my email address, and when i try switching it in settings, it wont appear on my ipad messages stream. 
    Logged on to my iclous account and none of my phots/info is appearing there.  made sure it is all set up to be backed up to icloud, but still not there/  It seems like the devices are not communicating with icloud...

    HI msknack,
    Thank you for your question. I understand that both of the devices are not syncing to match. Can you please check the following:
    *Are they on the same version of sync? (Android account should not list Firefox Sync (deprecated))
    *Are the managed items checked to be synced in the sync options?
    Posting back could help out other users as well.

  • Is it true that if you give in your old ipod you can get a new one for 1/2 off?

    I heard that if you trade in your old ipod touch, you get a discount on buying a new one. Is that true?

    Yes, but not half off. If you bring your older iPod into your local Apple store, you'll get a 10% discount towards the purchase of a newer model.

  • My redemption code had already been used. Where do i get a new one?

    Hi,
    I was trying to download the creative adobe on my macbook.
    I made a mistake and had to refresh the page but i already used my redemption code.
    Now it says my code had already been used and i can't use it again which means i can't download the adobe pack...
    Now what??

    Hello,
    best would be in my eyes you contact Adobe here Contact Customer Care and click throug the headlines. If necessary and for further questions use the chat, I had the best experiences. I quote from Adobe's employee Preran: The chat button is activated as soon as there is an agent available to help.
    In addition two links
    http://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?step=CCSN_adobe-id-signing-in and

    They to end in the question "Still need help? Contact us." (See above)

  • My itunes on my phone and ipad are syncd but the itunes on my mac is empty ive plugged in both phone and pad but no syncing what can i do

    i have only had my imac 27in a week my problem is my iphone and ipad are perfectly synced with i tunes but the itunes on my mac is empty i plugged them both in but it stays the same what can i do anyone know please

    Try disabling the computer's antivirus and firewall for the network problem.
    Also for the original problem try the following if Ana's suggestions does not work
    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try on another computer
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • I reset network settings on my iPhone. However now it looks as if my iPhone and iPad are no longer linked. They are both connected to my apple account but when I send an imessage from one it is not picked up by the other. What do I do?

    Check Settings > Messages > Send & Receive on both your iPhone and your iPad to make sure that the following are all true:
    (1) you have selected the same Apple ID on both devices,
    (2) you have the same entries checked under "You can be reached by iMessage at:" on both devices,
    (3) you have the same entry checked under "Start new conversations from:" on both devices,
    and
    (4) that the entry checked in #3 is one of those checked in #2 on both devices.

  • What do you do when your contacts with IPHONES or IPADS are not showing up in blue in IMESSAGE on my IPAD. The are showing up in RED and not allowing me to IMESSAGE them at all.

    What do you do when your contacts with IPHONES or IPADS are not showing up in blue in IMESSAGE on my IPAD. The are showing up in RED and not allowing me to IMESSAGE them at all.

    It was suggested I move this question to IPhoto or IMovie which I did. 
    Well moving to a different discussion group did not provide an answer to this question either. But what I finally did was import one batch of photos and videos into IPhoto for a given day at a time. Working with these I could change the date and times in order to get them in the original sequench taken. Then I would create an album with that batch. These would all be on the same day (IMove was closed for this phase). Then I would open IMovie, generate the thumbnails for that album, and select the album I had created. This was necessary because the importing process in IPhoto was using incorrect dates for my video so it was a real struggle finding them in IMove until I developed this approach.
    I believe that this whole process was so screwy because I was importing from an external hard drive not a camera. I had these photos on a PC and did not have the original cameras to use to import directly which I am fairly sure would have made this easier!

  • Is it possible to sync hotmail between ipad, iphone and macbook air. My iphone and ipad are synced OK but cannot sync up with my (new) macbook air - neither maill nor contacts.

    I have had ipad and iphone for a while and my mail, contacts and calendar are all synced up so that when I add or delete an item on one device it mirrors that on the other. Have recently purchased a macbook air but cannot get my hotmail to sync up - so I have to manage that separately from the ipad. Help!
