    I need to track someone elses device from my mac book pro it says the app is downloaded but I don't see how to track the iphone?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You can purchase Lion from the Mac App Store. You will need to meet the requirements for Lion, but the Mac App Store will tell you whether your Mac is capable of running Lion or not.

  • Why can I not download prev punch music - only books and apps?!

    I have tried so many times to download previously purchased music. I have been looking at my account, and it is all there, but unable to download. I have reported every song as a problem, but after the 6th or 7th song I am automatically directed to the apple support pages, and that fastlane support online is down... The important queastion, however, is that I do not have "music" as an option - only "apps" and "books". Why???
    On my iPhone 4 it is also not possible, as "purchased" is not an option in the menu. Why???
    This is driving me mad, and I am very disapointed as I have a brand new expencive Mac (my first) and my iPhone was updated yesterday so everything is up to date.
    Anybody else with the same experience?

    Downloading previously purchased music is not available in every country.  Check iTunes in the cloud availabilty by country in this document http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5085

  • Why can I not read an ebook that I have purchased on my computer using itunes?

    I purchased an ebook on itunes, downloaded it to my computer and selected it to start reading... it gives me the message: This book can't be viewed using this computer. You can view this book using iBooks on your iOS device.
    I am so incredibly furious that I can't use something that I have bought while using the program that I bought it from.
    If anyone has a solution pls help.
    please do not answer with "use your iOS device" or "get a mac." I don't have either, nor do I want them. I just want to listen or read the things that I have bought plain and simple.

    The message is correct.  You cannot read an Apple iBook on a PC.

    Get the Kindle app for PC, and buy your e-books from the Kindle Store.  They can be read on a wide variety of devices.
    As for the Apple iBook, you already bought, I guess you now realize it was a shopping error.  If you feel  the product was misrepresented, contact iTunes Customer Service.

    I am on a corp network using winproxy. The proxy is not set up to block 443, and no one else is having this issue.
    Tried the terminal command
    $ telnet sss-web.usps.com 443
    $ telnet: trying 56.0.134.63
    $ connect to address 56.0.134.63: no rout to host
    $ telnet: unable to connect to remote host
    So 443 is being blocked, but whats blocking it.
    Went to network utiliy and it showed 3 network interfaces (en1), (fw0), and (en0) only (en0) is set up correctly. The powerbook is using internal ethernet only.

  • Why can I not access ICloud mail on Mac Mail anymore.  When I reopen a new ICloud account, the "incoming server" box is gray and I cannot enter anything.   This happened the 3-4 times I attempted to start a new icloud account?

    Was getting ICloud mail then it stopped.   Icons next to ICloud on my mac mail say it's a netweork error.   I tried deleting the iCloud account several times and reentering it but it always leaves out the info that goes into the "incoming server" box and there is no way to manually enter it as the box is grayed out.   

    Sign out of iCloud (system preference>iCloud) reboot and sign back in.

  • Why can I not print multiple files to one sheet and create a PDF of that format via Print dialogue on Mac? Very important part of workflow!!!!

    Try this if you use mac.
    Create a multiple page PDF. Three pages.
    Go to print.  - Multiple pages per sheet so that you see all three pages on your sheet to be printed.
    At this point, on a windows machine, you can print this as a PDF.  On Mac, it only lets you save as PDF (Not with the format selected).
    WHY has this functionality been removed from the Mac version of Acrobat XI??? Adobe?

    Jon,
    Unfortunately, Rave's response is quite incorrect on two major points.
    The Adobe PDF PostScript printer driver instance was indeed part of the Macintosh version of Acrobat Pro until a few years ago.
    However, it was NOT Adobe that killed the feature. Apple did! In one of the MacOS updates, Apple fully removed the capability that Adobe had to support this virtual printer. There was nothing that Adobe could do about this, regrettably. Adobe didn't cripple anything. Complain to Apple!
    However, Adobe does provide a replacement for it that will yield similar results, but it is not available in Acrobat or Adobe Reader!!! In most applications' print dialogs (such as Word) - which printer you select is irrelevant, click on the PDF button and select the Save as Adobe PDF option. This will save your document as a PDF file with Adobe technology. But again, this is not available from with Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
    However, you should note that the process that you previously followed and you would like to continue to use is commonly referred to as “refrying a PDF” and is strongly discouraged even where it continues to work under Windows. Why? The print function of Adobe applications including Acrobat and Reader is optimized for PostScript for printing, not for creation of PDF. Resultant PDF files have lost any transparency (it has been flattened) and all color management has been lost.
    What you are really trying to do is to create a pre-imposed PDF file from an existing PDF file. Going through PostScript was and still is a very bad idea.
    There are some third party plug-ins to Acrobat, such as Quite Imposing (Quite Software, <http://www.quite.com>) and PDF Snake (<http://www.pdfsnake.com>) as well as some “free” (you get what you pay for) solutions you can look up on the web that can do PDF imposition without ruining your PDF via PostScript.
    Hopefully this can assist you.

  • Why can I not send a text to more than one person at a time on my iphone 5

    I have an iphone 5 IOS 8.1.3, and I can only send text messages to one person at a time. I cannot send GROUP text messages. It will then tell me they are not delivered.  What is wrong? How can I correct it?

    Send a group message with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support

  • Why can I not use my icloud address as my apple ID?

    Why can I not use my icloud address as my apple ID?

    This answer is probably the most popular one on the forum.  But apparently, this is a view not shared by virtually anyone else in the industry.  You can pretty much point to the same risks at stake for Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, or what-have-you.  No one else requires you to use a primary account other than their own. 
    The predicament you mentioned could easily be resolved by requiring multiple contact numbers and addresses, which Apple kind of does already.
    My thinking is there's either something more 'sinister' at play, or Apple just haven't really took the time to think about this issue.

  • Using iTunes why can you not backup and save your voicemail?  Guide me through this step by step if possible.  If alternate method MUST be used then provide same.  Truly appreciate this.

    Using iTunes why can you not backup and save your voicemail?  Guide me through this step by step if possible.  If alternate method MUST be used then provide same.  Truly appreciate this.

    Create and delete iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch backups in iTunes - Apple Support  - link doesn't state that voicemail is part of the backup
    iCloud: iCloud storage and backup overview  states that VVM is part of the icloud backup.
    You can also contact your cell phone provider - as voicemail is a carrier feature.

  • Why can I not send e-mails from my e-mail account? I can receive e-mails. Not an iCloud account. It is a Bell Aliant account.

    Why can I not send e-mails from my e-mail account? I can receive e-mails. It is not an iCloud account it is a Bell Aliant account. An account I pay for.
    This is the second time in three months this has occurred. Bell Aliant suggested I contact Apple directly as the only option is to remove my e-mail account and reconfigure it. This will mean losing all my files. These files are very important as my account is a business account.
    Bell Aliant thought perhaps it is an Apple problem and that Apple may better be able to remedy the situation without me losing my e-mail files.

    Sorry ?
    An Internet email provider losses all your Mail and it's Apple's fault ??
    Did they explain how the app managed to delete all of your mail and then not even let you have access ?
    If that was the case the app should still be able to access the empty folders.
    I know there is often blame and counter blame in these situations but there are limits.

  • Why can I not attach a document to an email? Every time I want to send an email with a document attached to it, an error notice pops out. It tell me that the file is being used even when  it is not. How can I fix this issue?

    Why can I not attach a document to an email? Every time I want to send an email with a document attached to it, an error notice pops out. It tells me that the file is being used even when  iall other programs are closed. How can I fix this issue?

    Thanks Jeff, I was not aware that a template could be multi-page.  (All the existing templates were 1 page)
    But it worked, saving me some steps.  When I was finished I renamed the document, and locked it.
    Then tried to save it but  could not because it was locked.  I closed it, went to my Spread Sheet Folder ,
    to find it, it was not there.  The Finder could not find it either.
    So I start over again.
    I opened up Numbers and it showed my personal Numbers template folder, it contained both my new 
    original 4 page template and the vanished saved document!
    I tried to delete the template containing these document data and could not - I had to go to the Library/Application Support/Numbers to physically remove it from this folder. Then I started over again.  I Finally found out how to make it work: I can now "save as", and then lock, and it will go to place where I want it to be saved and locked.
    The secret is: Click on the document title in the menu bar, and it opens up  "Save as...", which works the same as in OS 10.4.11, and you can pick the place you want for saving.  Once done that, you can then lock the document in the same pull down menu, and then close it.
    I also found later that I can delete a template from its folder, by letting Numbers open the templates,
    clicking on the one I want to remove, then go to the "Numbers Menu/File/Move to...", select "Desktop"
    and from there the selected template can then be thrown into the Trash from there.
    It appears now that the real fault of the Numbers software is that the "Save as" command is not available in the "Edit" or "File" pull-down menus, but hidden behind the title of the document.

  • Why can I not Convert a Microsoft Office Document to a PDF using the Context Menu?

    Why can I not Convert a Microsoft Office 2013 Document to a PDF using the options found in the Context Menu? (Ex: Convert to PDF, Combine Supported Files into PDF?)
    I updated to Acrobat XI PRO recently, but now i'm unable to combine or convert microsoft word docs to PDF.
    In Adobe Acrobat X I had this feature below, and it would combine Microsoft Office Documents all into a single PDF. Now I no longer have this issue in Adobe Acrobat XI Pro. It seems like it was program named Adobe Elements that was running the conversion.

    Ajlan. That page is showing as not available. Would the fix apply to Adobe Acrobat X and XI?
