SMS Alerts Not Ringing on 3GS After iOS5 Upgrade?

Hi folks,
Odd issue with SMS ringtones after upgrading to iOS5. Despite the phone not being in silent mode and a text message tone being set up, my phone does not play the new text tone when I receive a new iMessage (seems to work for standard SMS messages though). This is for when the phone is locked, by the way; I know that there are no sound alerts configurable for the main notification area.
This is annoying as it seems to only pop up an alert on the lock screen without actually giving me any audio notification. So if my phone's in my pocket or even if I'm just not looking at it, I don't know that I've gotten a new message.
Any idea what I might have configured wrong?

Can you explain what you mean by a full restore? Do you mean wiping the phone and restoring from iTunes?

  • Can't sync music on 3GS after IOS5 upgrade

    Upgraded my 3gs to ios5, got an error state, restored, got "An error occurred while restoring this iPhone (-34)", but successfully restored after a couple of tries, but now I can't synch any music to the phone. My Apps,contacts, and photos are there, but no music.  When I try to synch the music, It says syncing, and "completes" but the music app shows "No Content".  I tried unchecking al music in itunes, syncing, then checking some music and resynching, thinking it my clear something out, but to no effect.  It's as if it thinks it's adding music, bt nothings there.

    my problem occurred when I upgraded to IOS5 on my iPhone 4.  I received an unable to sync message that indicated that there was no space left on my iPhone; and a "Other" Capacity indicator appeared on the bottom of the iPhone device sync screen (in yellow color) and noted an overage of 12GB!  Ofcourse, prior to the upgrade I actually had 6GB free on my 32GB iPhone.  So, there is a bug.  The following link indicates a few solutions and hopefully it will answer your concern.  The link is http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1503
    However, I had to restore as the first two solutions didn't work.  Furthermore, about 3.3GB of "Other" remains while I synced up.  Clearly, the problem has not been resolved.  Apple owes me and you community members a patch to fix this bug.  Basically, I have spent about two hours fixing this and I still cannot use 3.3GB of my iPhone space.

  • Can't recover 3GS after IOS5 upgrade attempt - phone no longer seen in iTunes

    Tried upgrade on 3GS to IOS5, got msg that iTunes detected phone in recovery mode and I must restore. iTunes no longer sees the phone so restore doesn't work. Win XP sees the phone driver when I connect the phone, and driver says it is working properly. Have went through the entire support topic "iPhone not appearing in iTunes" and found no problem.  Rebooted computer 3 times and tried all USB ports -  iTunes still doesn't see the phone. Any ideas on how to recover this phone?

  • IPad2 3G does not recgonize SIM card after ios5 upgrade.

    Recenlty upgraded to ios5 on my iPad2 Wifi + 3G. Was working perfectly until the ios5 upgrade. After the upgrade, it no longer recognizes the sim card.
    Tried all the following things, but no success -
    1. Rebooted the ipad2
    2. Replaced with new SIM
    3. Did a system restore of the iPad
    Contine to get the following message on start up :
    No SIM card installed!
    Also, top left hand corner shows No SIM instead of 3G.
    When I go to the Settings page, Cellular Data section is disabled.
    By the way, tried the same SIM card on another iPad which had not upgraded to ios5 and the SIM card worked fine.
    Pls help. Really frustrated right now with this ios5 upgrade.
    Chetanovsky

    Finally found the solution. New iPad!. The apple authorised service Center replaced my iPad with a new one. Not many questions asked! New one is preloaded with iOS5 and recognizes my SIM card.
    Recommend people to do the same (i.e. get a replacement) if you have the same problem as mine. Do remember to backup your stuff before sending in your iPad to the service Center.

  • Can not send e-mails after iOS5 upgrade

    I upgraded my wifes iPhone to iOS 5. After the upgrade she can receive e-mails but can not send them. All the composed e-mails end up in her outbox. I click on the error and it says "The connection to the outgoing server "smtp.***.com" failed. Additional Outgoing Mail Servers can be configured in Setting>Mail, Contacts, Calenders."
    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Go to Settings => Mail,Contacts,Calenders => select the account and may have to click account again => should be viewing username and password, Scroll down and Select - Outgoing Server => Tap on Primary Server => try entering Username and Password in there even though it says optional... Also try port 25 if that doesn't work and try toggling SSL on/off if that doesn't work.

  • Can't make calls or sms on iphone 3gs after iOs5 upgrade?

    I upgraded to iOS5 on my iphone 3gs and I am having major problems connecting to the 3g network. I can't make or recieve calls or sms, or log on to the internet over the 3g network. wifi works fine, but that doesn't help with the calls or the sms, and i can't always be on wifi for my emails. the phone worked fine before the upgrade.
    i've restored the entire phone as a new phone, i've gone in to the apple store and had my phone looked at, they say there's nothing wrong with the hardware.
    i live in Canada and my carrier is Rogers - of course when I call them for help they say it must be the phone not their network. they'd rather i buy a new phone and sign another 3 year contract
    the only thing that seems to help is restoring network settings. immediately after doing that I can make calls, send and receive sms, and use the internet over 3g. but it only fixes it temporarily... after about 15 mins I'm back to the same problem. can't make or receive call etc.
    anyone else having this same problem?
    anyone know of a solution?

    After 2 hours with Apple Support, which was great, we figured out the issue. 1-800-my-iphone. When I upgraded to iOS5 and started using the iCloud, I was unaware that my previous synching settings were still set to Yahoo.com where I had been sycning wirelessly in the past. So the Apple support tech showed me that I had multiple accounts in both Notes and Contacts. I had iPhone, iCloud, yahoo, Outlook accounts and my default settings on the iphone should have all been set to icloud. Syching was occuring, but not in icloud. It took a little manual conversion of some Notes and Contacts into the icloud folders in Outlook, but now everything works and I only display and use the iCloud accounts in Notes and Contacts. Apple realizes that this is an issue for those of us that were previously using Yahoo and equivalents for wireless synching and they provded my support free. Usually they charge $27. All is well.

  • Ibooks not working on iphone4 after ios5 upgrade

    Hi folks,
    the ibook application is not working anymore after upgrading to ios5.
    It all appears to be ok but no book can be open. The books appears correctly, others may be downloaded but still none of them can be open.
    It looks like lacking a kind of  authentication.
    I removed it , restarted the phone, installed it again and it still does not work.
    Am I alone with this problem or someone else also got it?
    Marco Aurélio

    Hi.. I have problem wth hotspot too. But i still use it via wifi. I cant use cable as medium anymore. My experience, hotspot connection vis wifi sometime need to resert the connection several time before stable. Just try this: unplug the phone from usb connection. let your wifi turn off. Then set the personel hotspot on via usb only. After that back to the wifi setting. Turn it on. Again back to the personel hotspot setting. Turn it off, on it back (wifi connection automaticly selected when usb cable unplug). Now you can search your phone from ur wifi service on pc. Hope it works..

  • Have 18g of other on 3gs after ios5 update. what is this and how do you get rid of it?

    have 18g of other on 3gs after ios5 update. what is this and how do you get rid of it?

    \Based on other forum users' posts, it seems like all you need to do is Restore the phone from your latest backup, and that should "refresh" your phone's appraisal of its data storage.

  • Ipad1 is extremely, painfully slow after ios5 upgrade. Is there a fix?

    Is there any fix for the awfully slow performance of iPad1 after ios5 upgrade? Mine is sometimes so slow it's impossible to use. Thanks

    Mine is slower, but it's still useable. There is a update for battery draining due in a few weeks, though I don't know whether it will contain other fixes as well : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-15570462
    You could try closing all apps completely and then do a reset and see if that helps. To close all apps : from the home screen (i.e.not with any app 'open' on-screen) double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of each app to close them, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.
    To reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.
    I've also seen a couple of posts recommending turning off iCloud (which I haven't tried yet).

  • Cannot restore from back-up after iOS5 upgrade

    First try to restore after upgrade (original uppgrade process) iTunes said last available backup was time-stamped 11.34 but when chosen it was not accessible due to error 32 Backup missing.
    Trying to reset the unit to gain access to older backups iTunes claims my password for the backup is incorrect even though I know it's correct, thus I cannot resore after iOS5 upgrade.
    Looking in the folder (win XP machine) where the back-ups are stored it seems like there are no older backup available and my whole pic and vid library is gone! 2.5 yrs of images of my children!!!
    What to do?

    Sounds similar to my issue, I know my password is correct, even changed password in hopes that perhaps I was making a mistake, yet I wasn't. I backed up all my pix on an alternate computer, but my issue was that I used the voice memo recorder to record songs on the fly when I'm not at home, or just too lazy to hook up my studio gear. . . All that was backed up. . . yet, I'm told I'm entering the wrong password, I know it's not, but I guess I don't know how to type. . . I haven't searched for backup files in any location, other than looking to see if my pix were backing up as it quit syncing pix a couple months ago. No pix were backed up, so I plugged into a different computer, and that pc took em just fine.

  • After ios5 upgrade can no longer increase font size on iPad or iPhone, any suggestions apart from getting new glasses!! Also the backlight on the iPad isn't as bright as before. Any ideas?

    Hi Zak, thanks for the reply.
    The filename is whatever is set to be the background fill of the site (I presume the desktop background fill, if mobile versions are set to be different). I've tried a number of different files, sizes and types/formats and the result is still the same, so as far as I can tell it's not the file itself causing the issue...
    It uploads all pages (desktop, tablet and phone versions), .css files and .html files, and even the favicon .ico file but then hangs on the first image file, which incidentally is the background fill image.
    The total number of files is said to be 154. It gets stuck on file number 24.
    Yes the "Resume" dialog appears and upon clicking it just attempts to continue from the hang at the first image file (apparently 66% of the way through).
    Re: the "BC site has changed" part - I thought as much but figured worth reporting.
    ... Incidentally, as I've written this reply, I left the "Resume" dialog open (ie neither clicking "resume" or "cancel" and just as I've finished typing it appears to have published the site successfully?!! (I must've left it for roughly 5 minutes)
    Bizarre behaviour... I'm not sure if this will repeat itself with other sites but I'm sure there's a bug here that needs looking at regardless...?!
    Any thoughts?

    Hello dhiliptcs,
    It sounds like the WhatsApp app on your iPhone does not have a visible keyboard.  I recommend following the steps in the article below for an issue like this (you can skip step 3 since it is not related to this issue):

  • Performance slowdown after iOS5 upgrade

    Did anyone assess performance slowdown on iPad after iOS5 upgrading?
    ...especially refering to the panel responsiveness within Safari!... any troubleshooting feasible? Thank you!

    My iPad 2 feels snappier overall - there are a couple apps that haven't been updated for iOS 5 that exhibit problems though. My wife's iPad 1 seems about the same or a bit faster depending on what she's doing - and of course has the same issues with some apps that need upgrading.
    So far the only downside I can see to upgrading is that I've taken a small hit on the battery due to the improved notifications mostly, I think. By small I mean at the very end of the day when I connect it to my alarm dock, it has just over 20% instead of the more usual 25-30% charge left
