HT4061 I think I have a virus, yesterday I opened this message from verizon about me owning 1,000 to them. and today I have 8 messages from someone on my ipad. how can I tell or fix my ipad of this virus?

I think I have a virus, yesterday I got an email from Verizon that I own $1000 and I tried to open it and now I have 8 emails from the same sender. DO I have a virus and what should I do to clean my ipad?

Chances are your iPad is fine. when you clicked on that e-mail, you confirmed to them 'hey, real person' so now Mr Spammer is working towards his 'make money from home' quota of spam by sending you multiple e-mails. You can block him - I'm not sure what e-mail client you're using so no idea for exact instructions, but you'll probably need to do this on a computer not via the iPad) and you could report him....wouldn't hold my breath that the report will actually accomplish anything beyond the person being blocked.
The iPad's operating system is different from the OS of a PC or Mac. Viruses written for one can't run on the others. (and iPads dont' get viruses in the strictest definition of the term, malicious programs that propogate themselves across the operating system)
The down side, even if you block this person, they know your address is a 'live' one so you'll need to be alert and aware because I'm sure more spam and phising mails are on their way.
If you did enter ANY info, make calls and start changing passwords ASAP.

  • When a buy a song from itunes it goes to my phone but sometimes they just dont play at all, i click on them and it shows that it is there but never plays how can i fix this cause it is wasting my money??

    So some songs that i buy from itunes work fine others however dont.  They show up on my phone but i cant get them to play.  How can i fix this?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Try deleting the problematic file (electing to remove original file if/when prompted) and then re-downloading the file from the iTunes store.
    You can re-download content purchased from the iTunes store (availability varies depending on location) using the purchased option from the Quick Links section in the top right corner of the iTunes homepage in your iTunes application on your computer.
    You can re-download content purchased from the iTunes store (availability varies depending on location) using the purchased option which is revealed in the iTunes app on your iOS device by tapping the more button at the bottom of the screen.
    If the problem re-occurs, select the content which is causing a problem and use the 'Report a problem' button in Your Purchase History using your computer.

  • I am working on a book and want to send it to someone to help edit, how can I do this

    I am working on a photo book in iPhoto and would like to send it to another member of the family for editing before I publish.  How can I do this?

    Not really possible in general
    a book is simply entries in the iPhoto database and to transfer it you must transfer the entire iPhoto database
    You could preview it and send the resulting PDF but typically that is VERY large
    Before ordering your book preview it using this method - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1040 - and save the resulting PDF for reference - the delivered book will match it.

  • HT1688 how can I tell if my iphone 4 has a virus

    does my phone have a virus?

    Is it jailbroken?
    If it is then the chances are very good it does.
    If not then it does not.
    Why do you ask?
    What is it doing that makes you think it it might?

  • Minor problem - I have 4 folders in the dock, but when I press on the icons for two of them, there is no choice of "display as folder" or "options". Can somebody tell me why not? Thanks!

    I have four folders in the dock. Two are fine. The other two of them will not allow me to press on the stack's icons to view the commands "Display as Folder" or "Options". Can somebody help me out with this minor problem?
    Thanks!

    Are you right - clicking (control-clicking) them? The following should appear if you do that, and allow you to change the folder's appearance in the Dock:

  • Someone stole my iPod, how can I tell if they connected it to itunes and restored it?

    I need to know how to track whether they've restored it to make it their own or not..

    No. All you have to do is place the iPod in recovery mode (erases the iPod) and restore via iTunes.
    - 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.
    - You can also wipe/erase the iPod and have the iPod play a sound via iCloud.
    - If not shown, then you will have to use the old fashioned way, like if you lost a wallet or purse.
    - Change the passwords for all accounts used on the iPod and report to police
    - There is no way to prevent someone from restoring the iPod (it erases it) using it unless you had iOS 7 on the device. With iOS 7, one has to enter the Apple ID and password to restore the device.
