Settings>Messages>send and receive. Apple ID is on the top click it then log out. Then turn you iMessages on and select your phone number. Don't log back into your Apple ID until you know it worked. Worked for me. Then when I logged back in it had my phone number and email instead of just the email from before.

Well you would need to get the Apple ID first, then reset it with your Apple ID. To recover your ID password: iForgot

As far as I know, that is impossible. But, you can use the Lightning to HDMI adapter or AirPlay to an Apple TV.

A very short pause is enough for Siri to think you are done. Get in the habit of CONTINUOUS speaking and Siri should accept all your words.

No. A backup only copies the information to a remote location. The original information on your phone will remain. The backup preserves the information, should the information on your iPhone become damaged. It also makes it easier to transfer this information to another iPhone. If you backup your iPhone to a computer (connected via the USB cable) using ...

There are a few possible things that could have happened. I've ordered them (and their solutions) below from most to least likely. Explanations: You have a faulty cord. It has become frayed on the inside. One of the metallic connectors is dirty. Dust or dirt has collected in your charging port. Your wall outlet is not functioning correctly. You have a ...

Do you have a backup? Time Machine or otherwise? If so you can restore the file from a backup. The iPhone apps are located in ~/Music/iTunes/Mobile Applications and end with the ".ipa" extension. It has been a while since I tried this but I think you just have to place the restored file in the proper folder and sync your phone.

The quick answer is that there isn't really much you can do on your end. What can I do? You could take apart the phone and attempt to fix the display manually, but by no means does this guarantee a fix (or even an improvement). By doing this, you would also run the risk of damaging your device further. If Apple replaced your screen when it was broken, ...

Strange. That South African iPhone 4S should definitely work in Australia. I believe that the only region lock is on Chinese iPhones (typically, they have a whole different model number), was the Australian carrier using the same cellular technology as your carrier in South Africa (GSM vs CDMA)?

A few possibilities: Somewhere down the line, one of you accidentally combined and synced your contacts. You added a non-iCloud account in "Mail, Contacts, and Calendar" that contains the contacts unknowingly. You restored from a backup during setup that contained the contacts.

This just happened to me. I received a random call from a guy claiming my phone keeps calling him on facetime. My phone was on my desk no where near anything that could initiate a call and I do not have this guy's number in my phone or ipad. I also checked the call history and his number wasn't there. I changed my appleid password so hopefully this puts ...

To answer your questions in order: 1. No, you can only update to 8.4. 2. I don't have any problem composing emails with 8.4. I believe that there is an Accessibility setting for font size, anyways. 3. YMMV. My iPhone 4S ran great on iOS 8, but some don't have that great of luck. 4. I think 2.5GB is enough to download. 5. I believe any connectivity issues ...

Just a get a dummy SIM card off of eBay or maybe even from Verizon. Also look on the left side of the iPhone and you should see an oval indented with a hole in it. Stick a paperclip straight in and the tray holding the SIM card should pop out. If this isn't clear enough, I'm sure there is some YouTube videos on the subject.

Sounds like a bad battery to me. You can get a new battery and everything you need to change it at a website called iFixit for like $30 shipped, (don't worry, for a 4S, a battery replacement is super easy, it's just 4 screws and pulling the battery connector off of the logic board).
