    After updating Iphone 4s to 6.0 the signal is very weak and the phone drops calls frequently.

    Based on what?
    "When Apple rolled out iOS 6.1, its first major update to iOS 6, yesterday, it introduced a series of bug fixes, software tweaks for iTunes and Siri and also added LTE support - but none of that was any use to the disconnected and discontented sufferers of a particular iPhone software flaw: greyed-out Wi-Fi."

  • IPod won't connect to iTunes..have tried it all

    Ok...so a few days ago I plugged my Ipod 160gb classic into my computer to sync to Itunes. Itunes then froze up, so after I ejected it, I reset it. I plugged it back into Itunes and now everything is gone off the Ipod. No big deal, everything was backed up.
    So now when I turn the Ipod on it goes straight to language select menu. I plug it into Itunes and it shows up on My Computer but won't show up in Itunes - it stays froze on "connected -ejected before disconnecting" screen. So I disconnect, and the Ipod goes straight to the black/Apple logo screen for a few seconds before going back to the language select menu.
    I have done the hard reset and the same thing happens.
    I have done the right click/format to Ipod under My Computer with no results.
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled Itunes.
    I have tried different USB cables to connect the ipod to the computer.
    Apple Device Manager is installed. I've started/restarted it as well.
    I have put the Ipod in disk mode and connected to Itunes. It usually freezes on the "do not connect" screen. Sometimes in disk mode, Itunes will say that my Ipod needs restored, so I click on restore. It will go to a dark black screen with the Apple logo with a progress bar at the bottom. Before the bar fills up it will go to the regular black Apple logo screen for a few minutes before going back to being frozen on the "connected -eject before disconnecting" screen. The ipod still won't be shown on Itunes either.
    I have run device manager, updated Apple Device Manager, used the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers folder and says its up-to date.
    I have gone through the steps in these-
    iPod: Appears in Windows but not in iTunes
    and iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    with no results.
    This is my smart data:
    Retracts: 75
    Reallocs: 200
    Pending Sectors: 16
    Power On Hours: 65
    Start/Stops 20234
    Temp: Current 33c
    So I'm guessing after all the troubleshooting, it would be something hard drive related? Especially since the start/stops have to be high. I just want to make sure what it is before I try replacing the hard drive.
    I know variations of this question have been posted a bunch of times, but I've tried everything I've seen on here. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

  • I have installed iTunes on my new windows 7 dell laptop every time I start it it comes up with an error saying itunes has encountered a problem and it closes ? any answers have tried command prompt reset and it has not resolved it also un/reinstalled

    I have installed iTunes on my new laptop OS Windows 7. I have two iphones, a 3rd gen nano and an ipod classic.
    Since the install yesterday I keep getting an error message which itunes has stopped working A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a soluion is available.
    I have un and re installed and followed a command promt reset.
    I still have the problem. Any ideas?

    Ok. So I created a new account and iTunes did work. I went back into my original account and tried again and just to be more clear, after I open iTunes it asks me to accept or decline the agreement, I do that, then it says "updating library", and then one all the bars are full it closes and says "iTunes has encountered a problem and needs to close."
    okay, let's start working through the user-account-specific causes of this message.
    one possibility is damaged itunes preference files in the user account in which you're getting the crash. (there's a different set of those in each different user account, which is how we can get crashes limited to a single user account.)
    if that is what is going on, we can often get past this by rebuilding the preference files in the account that is crashing. for the preference files rebuild technique, see my reply to kusma in this post:

  • I downloaded iOS8 on my iPod 5th generation the other day and its been completely fine and now all of a sudden my iPod has turned off and it won't turn back on, i have tried charging it but nothing is coming up, what should i do?

    the other day when iOS8 came out i downloaded it onto my 5th generation iPod, it has been working perfectly fine since, now today when i left it for a couple of hours, it turned itself off and now it won't turn back on. i have tried charging it but nothing is happening. it's not out of charge because the little battery usually comes up when its charging, but the screen is completely black and nothing is happening. i have tried turning it on by both buttons and it won't work. i don't know whats wrong with it. i haven't topped it or anything, so I'm assuming its the new download as it seems to be effecting other peoples devices as well. what should i do?

    I would suggest trying to do what I call a "forced reboot". Hold the home and power buttons down and see if that works. Also try entering in a wifi network: settings->Wifi->Other and enter in all the info and see if that works.

    ‘iPad is disabled’ fix without resetting using iTunes
    Today I met my match with an iPad that had a passcode entered too many times, resulting in it displaying the message ‘iPad is disabled – Connect to iTunes’. This was a student iPad and since they use Notability for most of their work there was a chance that her files were not all backed up to the cloud. I really wanted to just re-activate the iPad instead of totally resetting it back to our default image.
    I reached out to my PLN on Twitter and had some help from a few people through retweets and a couple of clarification tweets. I love that so many are willing to help out so quickly. Through this I also learned that I look like Lt. Riker from Star Trek (thanks @FillineMachine).
    Through some trial and error (and a little sheer luck), I was able to reactivate the iPad without loosing any data. Note, this will only work on the computer it last synced with. Here’s how:
    1. Configurator is useless in reactivating a locked iPad. You will only be able to completely reformat the iPad using Configurator. If that’s ok with you, go for it – otherwise don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.
    2. Open iTunes with the iPad disconnected.
    3. Connect the iPad to the computer and wait for it to show up in the devices section in iTunes.
    4. Click on the iPad name when it appears and you will be given the option to restore a backup or setup as a new iPad (since it is locked).
    5. Click ‘Setup as new iPad’ and then click restore.
    6. The iPad will start backing up before it does the full restore and sync. CANCEL THE BACKUP IMMEDIATELY. You do this by clicking the small x in the status window in iTunes.
    7. When the backup cancels, it immediately starts syncing – cancel this as well using the same small x in the iTunes status window.
    8. The first stage in the restore process unlocks the iPad, you are basically just canceling out the restore process as soon as it reactivates the iPad.
    If done correctly, you will experience no data loss and the result will be a reactivated iPad. I have now tried this with about 5 iPads that were locked identically by students and each time it worked like a charm.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Try it and good luck. You have nothing more to lose if it doesn't work for you.
     Cheers, Tom

  • I have windows 7 64 bit, Core i5, I have tried every option identified in the discussion groups but still cannot connect to the iTunes Store, any ideas?

    I have a brand new Core i5 Windows 64bit laptop, but cannot connect to the iTunes Sore.  I have tried every solution suggested in the discussion groups but I still cannot connect.  This includes completely removing all security and firewalls, and I still cannot connect.  I have re-load the software in different combinations again to no avail.  Any ideas anyone?

    Could you walk us through what happens (when you try to connect to the Store) in some more detail, please?

    Yeah, first my thought was also that... that's why I've gone to Apple and they already switched the phone twice!!!
    Last time was yesterday... I posted this here because I came from Apple and with a new iPhone 5, although I didn't restore anything from iCloud, I hadn't even logged in to iCloud / AppStore, and without any event on the lockscreen my iPhone 5 was already "locked" on the unlock screen... after a mere 45m after I used it without a single App!! Just a couple of SMS / 1 or 2 calls... I'm going to Apple again on monday, but tried to post here to see if this has happened before to anyone with 3 new iPhones!!!

  • IPhone 5 won't connect to Wifi

    I have an iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.4. I've been having trouble connecting to the wireless network at my dads house. I can connect this phone on every other network i've ever tried with no problems. Everyone else can also connect to my dads network with no problems. This phone used to connect to his network also. The wpa key was saved so it would connect automatically then about 2 weeks ago it popped up and asked me for the password and hasn't been able to connect since then. When I type the password it tries to connect for about 2 seconds then says password incorrect. I have tried rebooting the phone and router and even changed the password on the router. I have gone into the settings on iPhone and clicked forget network then tried to reconnect several times. Nothing on his wireless network has changed in over a year so I don't think it's anything on that end.
    Anybody have any ideas? I have read several articles with people having connection issues but nothing people have suggested worked for me.
    Thanks
    Mark

  • My iPhone 5 won't connect to the Internet.

    I have a factory unlocked iPhone 5, and I had my regular-sized SIM cut to fit the iPhone 5, since the nano SIM is not available yet in my country (Venezuela). The SIM works, I get messages, calls, etc. But it won't connect to the internet unless I'm on wi-fi. I've tried in different places, with full 3G signal, but it doesn't work. The weird thing about this is that I get Whatsapp messages (and I can send them as well), I get notifications from Instagram and Twitter, but it won't let me, say, enter my Twitter profile, or load Instagram pictures. It won't load any kind of internet content, neither with Safari nor Chrome.
    The phone (or rather iOS 6) doesn't seem to have any option to edit the APN, so I researched a bit and found the iPhone Configuration Utility. I used it a couple of months before with an iPhone 3G to set an APN and it worked. Only this time, it wouldn't let me create and install a new profile on the iPhone 5. It would let me install the old profile I had for the Iphone 3G, which had the same APN settings I was trying to use now (both from the same carrier) but it didn't fix the internet issue. I also tried the Unlockit method, but it didn't work either.
    What bothers me is that I've seen in a few websites screencaps of the Mobile Data screen, and it shows an option to configurate the APN settings in the phone itself, but mine's missing it.
    I'd really appreciate if you could help me out, or at least give me a hint of what could be causing this. I've tried almost everything, and I've read a lot of posts here, but I haven't found anything useful. Thanks in advance.

    In addition to what ChrisJ4203 said about cellular data, check your carriers website, it may need you to enter APN settings to allow internet access over cellular.
    Also does normal telephone calling & SMS work? Disable wifi to avoid using iMessage as a test. If the SIM is damaged or blocked etc it may not work with cellular data, does the phone give you any error messages when powering on?
    Another thing to try is to back up to iTunes & check for updates to iOS - sometimes a carrier update can restore the cellular network settings.
