Why is it i can still dial out using siri even if my phone is locked ?

are apple going to bring out an update to sort this out

Depends wher you obtained the iPhone from and it's original supplier
If the iPhone is an authorised unlock ( approved by the carrier) or was
purchased from Apple as an unlocked iPhone  updating the iOS
will have no effect on the iPhone and it's lock status
HOWEVER if the software has been tampered with to remove the lock,
updating the iOs will lock the iPhone back to the original carrier who holds the lock
To find out the status of your iPhone  you could call Apple support
and they may tell you if the iPhone is locked or not and if it is which carrier

  • TS4268 Why I cant send message to iPhone by using mac even though my phone number is already registered

    I had tried many ways. But it still doesn't work.

    Power cycle your device to see if this takes care of the issue. (home button and sleep/wake button holding down simultaenously until device turns off)
    if this does not take care of the issue go to settings>General>reset>reset networking settings
    After resetting you will then need to go to wi/fi to plug back in the password to your wi/fi router.
    Good luck.

    1 sign out of apple account
    2 close down passbook app
    3 change year to 2013
    4 reopen passbook and sign in at the button with your apple ID
    5 change the time to auto update and it should work from now on.

  • I am trying to connect my new iMac to my Buffalo router.  I forgot my router password, so I reset it and it is working.  I can't figure out how to reset my router password and lock it on my iMac.

    I am connecting my new iMac to my Buffalo router.  I forgot my router password so I pushed the reset button and my computer was able to connect.  The problem is, I can't figure out how to set my new password and lock the router.  I went to the Buffalo website and downloaded the CD, as I can't find that either.  I can't open any of it because it says it is Windows and can't open it.  I am new to Apple!

    Ah, new to routers too.
    Perhaps it's best to have a local computer support person come set you up?
    To explain everything would require writing a book here.
    But this is what you want basically.
    Router, new Wireless N, firmware updated.
    1: Two accounts, one admin, one guest Internet access. Random +30 plus character lenght passwords each preferred.
    (guest password to max password length of any iDevices)
    2: Encryption: WPA2 AES. No Ping. No remote access. No MAC filtering. Visible.
    3: Guest access on devices and computers only.  Passwords written down and stored.
    4: OpenDNS preferred but not mandatory.
    If you get OpenDNS, you can log into their website for free and set parental controls on things like inappropriate sites for children. So whatever device is used on your network can't access a large portion of those sites (nothing is perfect) by most users who are not technical oriented.
    What your doing now is running the bare bones unsecure router which can be used harmfully against you.
    Even a Apple Airport router has to be very well secured. The defautl cd and out of the box setup is not a secure solution.

  • I have two iPhones on my iTunes account. How can I find out what apps go to which phone?

    I have two iPhones on my iTunes account. How can I find out what apps go to which phone?

    I don't believe that there is a way to do that.  I would sugest using automatic downloads to keep your apps synced across both phones.  You might also want to note that just about any app you have ever download will be available for free download via icloud.
    Wish I could be more help.

  • I have always been able to zoom in on my photo by holding the cmd and space bar, that changed and now it creates a box and zooms in on that area and I can't zoom out using cmd   space bar. How do I change it back to the  original way of zooming?

    Select the Zoom Tool in the tool box and see if Scrubby Zoom is unchecked or greyed out in the tool options bar.
    (you want Scrubby Zoom checked)

    - If you previously turned on FIndMyiPod on the iPod in Settings>iCloud and wifi is on and connected go to iCloud: Find My iPhone, sign in and go to FIndMyiPhone. If the iPod has been restored it will never show up.
    iCloud: Find My iPhone
    Then erase you device
    iCloud: Erase your device
    Alos change the password for all account used on the iPod includeing your Apple ID.

  • HT204053 i lost my iPhone recently and how can i retrieve it using my Apple ID? also, how to turn icloud on using Itunes even if the phone's lost?

    i lost my iPhone recently and how can i retrieve it using my Apple ID? also, how to turn icloud on using Itunes even if the phone's lost?

    Unless you had enabled Find My iPhone on it before it was lost then there isn't any way to locate it (it can only be turned on directly on the phone, it can't be done remotely). If you did enable it then you could try locating it either via http://icloud.com on a computer or Find My iPhone on another device - but that will only work if it's connected to a network and the device hasn't already been wiped and/or Find My iPhone disabled on it.
    If you think that it was stolen then you should report it to the police. You should also change your iTunes account password, your email account passwords, and any passwords that you'd stored on websites/emails/notes etc.

  • I got a Iphone 4 from UK and got unlocked in india, can i take the software updates? will my phone get locked due to this?

    I got a Iphone 4 from UK and got unlocked in india, can i take the software updates? will my phone get locked due to this?

    Your phone was "hacked" to unlock it. So, if you update software or restore your phone, it will be re-locked to the carrier it was originally locked to in the UK.

  • Downloaded ios7 and now can't dial out or receive calls on my iphone4

    I cannot dial out or receive calls on my iphone 4 since downloading ios7

    First thing to try is to reset your device. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.

    You will have to ask the developers.  Also that is against your terms of service, and should be discussed in a different forum.

  • Can't open app using Siri whilst driving

    I've got a BMW that uses Siri Eyes Free.
    I can read and send texts OK but if I try to open an app I get told that Siri can't do that whilst I'm driving.
    I'm not trying to do anything that would distract me from driving - I just want to listen to an audio book and so I'm trying to open Audible.
    Is this a "feature" of ios?

    Siri opens apps just fine.
    I hit the button, tell Siri open audible.
    Audible app opens.
    Tell Siri play that Mitchell and Webb sound, which is in the music app under audiobooks, it opens and starts playing.
    I believe the problem is with the car system.

  • Why will Siri make phone calls for you even though your phone is locked?

    I just discovered that, from my locked screen, Siri will gladly make phone calls for me...  How can I change this?

    Disable Siri from the locked screen. You probably have a passcode set up. Under settings>general>passcode you should be able to turn siri off on the locked screen
