I had over 1500 apps on my iPhone 5, and I saw this error several times. After I installed iOS Console (free download) on my Mac, I could see some error messages in the iOS Console. Several apps had quite a long name and/or weird characters in the app title. This was stopping them from copying. I think a service zips them prior to copying, and it was jammed ...

Did you have an application called "find my iphone"? If so, then you can find it by logging in to your apple id, and track your iphone using the application

This is what I did to solve the problem. Powered the phone down. I removed the SIM card. Use a small paper clip and insert in the sim card hole and push firmly. Don't use a large paper clip. While they fit the hole, are too large to push on the mechansim that pops the card up. I lightly cleaned the SIM card contacts with an alcohol prep swab (the kind they ...

In short, no. Both are instances of VPN configurations profiles. By default, the “VPN Configurations” pane should be the only one that exists if you are installing a VPN configuration profile under the natively supported protocols (PPTP, L2TP/IPSEC). The “Personal VPN” option appears only after installing certain software, such as Unlimited Free VPN by ...

I've needed to goto my Google Contacts and add the person to the built-in "My Contacts" group. I haven't found the "My Contacts" option in the preview of Google's updated (for 2015) Contacts preview. Google Support: Sync contacts with your phone

iMessage is a service from Apple which works from iOS devices and Macs with OS X 10.8 and later only and is using the device's data connection rather than the regular phone connection. Using the e-mail address with another device's text messaging system will most-likely result into an error telling you that the e-mail address entered is an invalid phone ...

The backup / restore routine was required by older iPhones but I don't believe it is required with newer phones. I was able to to move a 5C and 5s on T-Mobile to AT&T simply by swapping SIMs after T-Mobile unlocked the phones. I may have needed to reset the network settings. Looks like you are able to do the same thing. Your phone is unlocked.

I believe you are unlocked. I just conducted an experiment for you. I took my T-Mobile SIM card out of my iPad and put it in my locked AT&T iPhone 6. It immediately told me "SIM Not Valid. The SIM card that you currently have installed in this iPhone is from a carrier that is not supported under the activation policy that is currently assigned by the ...

Just as a thought but since a new charger works for a week or so perhaps the issue is not the phone or the charger the outlet you're using if you always use the same one it might be damaging the charger somehow.

Before checking for a battery replacement, I would clean the connector of the iPhone. Check this video (I will also work for an iPhone 5) I had this problem and it solved it. If this doesn't work, go with jherran's answer. Good luck

Some iPhone 5 are eligible for a free battery replacement. Maybe that is related to your issue? Apple has determined that a very small percentage of iPhone 5 devices may suddenly experience shorter battery life or need to be charged more frequently. The affected iPhone 5 devices were sold between September 2012 and January 2013 and fall within a ...

I found another solution that may be good for some people. If you don't mind deleting your apps in iTunes, just when you're about to back up your friend's phone, delete all the apps on your iTunes, go to the Apps tab, press Cmd-A and right click delete. You might also have to de authorise your iTunes, and authorise it with your friend's Apple ID when ...

No it's not possible to hide it on an unjailbroken iPhone.

When you remove an account from the iPhone (or any iDevice), it will ask if you want to "remove or keep" the current contacts etc.. synced with the accounts. First delete the account from your device i.e. 1) Tap on Settings 2) Tap on Mail, Contacts & Calendars 3) Tap on the Account in question 4) Scroll to the bottom and tap on "Delete" You'll then be ...

Ensure you are "starting new conversations from" and "receive messages using" your email address and not a phone number. This is done in the messages settings panel in the settings app.

If you have reinstalled the operating system of Apple just decides to make another change I have not quite figured out yet, I often find myself needing to go in and reenable the iMessage and FaceTime feature. It is fairly straight forward Go to Settings>Messages and turn off iMessage. Then go to FaceTime and turn off FaceTime. Restart your device. Turn ...

iPhone does have a shell, bash to be specific, but you can't access the shell without jailbreaking, and any 'shell' app from the App Store won't have the ability to interact with the device in any reasonable manner necessary for fixing network problems.


1

No, at least not one that would be publicly accessible. You'd have to jailbreak your phone, at which point support for applications would not be covered. All app store applications run in protected sandbox mode purposefully to limit this type of interaction with the device. (edit to clarify that the phone does have bash but not accessible to the everyman)

Is it at all possible that the campus network does not broadcast it's SSID? Try this, go into Settings -> Wi-Fi and tap on "Other..." Type in the name of the campus WiFi network and its password. Will that allow you to connect?

Error 21 indicates issues with the power source/battery, error 2002 usually is a connection problem. Given the fall your phone did, it's a safe guess that something broke or got disconnected on the inside. It's probably best to go to your nearest Apple Retail Store (if this is an option), your vendor or a local iPhone repair shop. If you are used to fixing ...

I'm having the same issue as you described it here. I have a iPhone 5, too. If you have done anything suggested by Apple, it's a battery issue. You need to change the battery in order it to work. Otherwise, I don't think there is any other way you can make it work. Attached is the link from Apple. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201210 For my situation, ...
