    i have an iphone 3gs that i updated thia evening to the latest software but the problem it could not read the sim card plse any help

    Your iPhone was hacked to unlock it. Now that you have updated it has cleared that hack and is locked with the original cell provider. Call AppleCare and give them the model and serial number and they can tell you the cell provider it is locked with. Then contact that cell provider and see what their unlock policy is and if you qualify.

  • Recently updated to 3.8.2 v1.1 and since then my mac crashes a lot, and can't handle simple tasks. Has anyone else had this problem?

    I recently got told about the new software update for OS Yosemite.  It was version 3.8.2 v1.1 and since then my mac crashes a lot, and can't handle simple tasks. Like playing a 3 minute song, checking emails, and even whilst typing this its crashed so many more times than i've lost count. Has anyone else had this problem? And what do you recommend I do?

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you turn on the computer, and again when you log in.
    Note: If FileVault is enabled in OS X 10.9 or earlier, or if a firmware password is set, or if the startup volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to start up and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal startup may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually login automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

    You did not ruin the phone, you will need a sim card to activate the phone and then connect the phone to itunes and do a restore from back up.

  • Yesterday, I downloaed the new software update, IOS 7.1.2, and since then my phone has been 'searching' and therefore have no cellular...help!!

    ios

    Sometimes when a person updates to IOS 7 their phone service becomes suspended all together, and the Verizon store won't be aware of that most of the time and they recommend getting a new SIM card when that's not the problem. So try the steps I laid out for you below before you take it any farther.
    With any other phone, call the Verizon customer service line. Then it will ask you to type a phone number in that needs service, this is when you type in the number of the unserviced phone
    After that it will tell you if your phone service is suspended and it gives you an option to un-suspend it as long as you have your account password.
    Hope this helps.

  • My iPhone 3G turned off when i dropped it, and since then i try turning it on and it won't pass the apple logo, what do i do?

    I dropped My iPhone 3G it turned off and since then i've tried turning it on & it won't boot through the apple logo, i already tried pressing the home button and the log off one but its the same. what do i do?!

    Before you bring it in to the store, you could rule out software by placing the phone in DFU mode and restoring the OS. In the absence of hardware issues, the DFU restore will solve the issue of the phone being stuck on the Apple logo. It will also remove al data from the phone so hopefully you have a recent backup.
    To put your iPhone/iPod into DFU mode:
    1. Make sure the iPhone/iPod is connected to the computer
    2. Hold down the sleep/wake button and home button at the same time for 8 seconds
    3. Let go of the sleep/wake button and keep holding down the home button
    4. If you are successful, a dialog box will pop up in iTunes stating that iTunes has detected an iPod/iPhone in recovery mode. Note that a successful DFU will result in a blank black screen on your iPhone/iPod.
    5. Click OK, then click the restore button in iTunes.
    Hopefully after that you will be able to resync your data and be good to go.
    Hope this helps.

  • I recently updated to the new adobe flash 10.3.181.26 and since then I have not been able to listen to any videos online especially youtube videos. Though I can still see the videos I can't hear them.

    I've tried multiple times checking the settings with flash and I've checked and unchecked "hardware acceleration" and I've cleared my cache and cookies multiple of times. I've uninstalled and reinstalled flash many times to but still I have this issue. My computer alone plays music just fine only through flash videos do I have a problem

    Hi X-Calibar, thanks for your comments. Yes, there are 4 zones under Internet Options and security settings. IE9 from what I have read has more security features than IE7/IE8 had. It appears this Server verification involves status of the Certificate that the website has as well as the Server that is using it. From what I've read on the IE9 sites, Microsoft states that if any HTTP sites are in the Trusted Zone, that the Server Verification is to be UNchecked.
    When you go to add a site to the Trusted Sites zone, it by default only accepts HTTPS sites.
    I would think that would only be if you had the SV box checked, that's what I find with IE8.

    I think you and I may be saying the same thing, just in a different way:-) Not using IE9, I don't know how all of the new features work. My concern is mainly limited to any feature that conflicts or effects Flash Player. Just as the ActiveX Filtering. That certainly effects Flash Player, so that is on my radar:-)
    Hopefully, Chris Campbell will clarify some of this:-)
    Thanks,

  • My iPhone has the latest software 6.0

    My iPhone has the latest software 6.0 it is a 4S.
    Everynow and then my brightness setting will go dull, then when I go to change it back to the brightness I prefer the indicator is inthe right stop it just needs moving?
    Any help?

    What else have you done as far as troubleshooting? Try a reset, holding the sleep/wake and home buttons together until you see the Apple logo and then release. See if that helps. The next step is a restore. You can check the iPhone manual which is available as a bookmark in Safari or can be downloaded as a book in iBooks for free.

  • Switch between sim cards from 2 different countries in an iphone 5

    I live in switzerland but study in the UK and I was planning on buying the iphone 5.
    Is it possible to change between my swiss sim card and uk sim card in an unlocked iphone 5 without any trouble?

  • I restored my iphone and now it says it needs a sim card and i do not have one

    I restore my iphone 4 and i do not have the sim card, after i restored it, it made everything restart like when you first get the phone like when your setting it up and it keeps asking for my sim card but i dont have it, how can i skip this?

    If it's an unlocked phone, any SIM will do. It doesn't even have to be tied to an active line of service. It just has to be a valid SIM.  If it's carrier locked, it must be from the correct carrier.
