Sorry, I'm not bringing a solution, because I don't think there's one. The issue here is the car (as you guessed it), so I don't think you'll find good answers on this forum. However, I think I know enough about cars to tell you that there's no such solution that exists: If I understand your request correctly, you want to add a hash code to your address ...

This is the link to the find feature in iCloud https://www.icloud.com/#find Check out this forum https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4370979 (a user declared that it helped). Sorry, there is no way for you to reverse the Erase command. AppleCare "may" be able to, you can try calling them, but there is nothing you can do.

There’s no need to let it discharge 100% before recharging. Apple lithium-ion batteries work in charge cycles. You complete one charge cycle when you’ve used (discharged) an amount that equals 100% of your battery’s capacity — but not necessarily all from one charge. For instance, you might use 75% of your battery’s capacity one day, then recharge it fully ...

All you have to do is to choose a long and loud ringtone as your calendar alert sound. Try it, it works, and doesn't require any technical manipulation. You can change the alert from the preferences (and not within calendar itself). You will probably have to make a ringtone yourself if the regular ones seem too harmless... A ringtone can be as long as 30 ...

Yes, the ideal time to charge your phone is around 50% depletion. Ars Technica explains why: Full discharges put a lot of strain on the battery, and it's much better practice to do shallow discharges to no lower than 20 percent. In a way, this is like people running for exercise— running a few miles a day is fine, but running a marathon every day is ...

I recommend trying Dropbox or Cubby. I know Dropbox allows roughly 3GB (I think) for free and depending on the size of your photographs that may be enough. All you do is login online and upload the photos to Dropbox (note that Cubby is comparable in nearly all aspects) and then install the app on your phone. You can then save the images to your camera ...

Drop a pin and add the location to your bookmarks. Drop another pin and tap the directions button. Select the first location as the location in your bookmarks and the second location should already be set to the second dropped pin location.

For Google Drive to show in an extensions list, the app must have been updated to support these extensions in iOS 8. It would appear at this time that the app has not been updated to support this.

I wrote a blog post about it. Getting distance with accelerometer and other iPhone sensors without using GPS is definitely possible. Resulys aren't 100% accurate but usable. http://www.nomtek.com/scanning-rooms-with-an-iphone/

Leave them in contacts rather than remove, but set all their ringtones/messages sounds to a silent ringtone. There's one here linked from this page - How can I get a silent ringtone on my iPhone? on the iPhoneFAQ site. You'll still get the notifications, but no sounds.

Turns out, iCloud Drive (or a related service) messed up my Apple ID in some way. I signed out of my Apple ID, performed a password reset, and signed in using the new password. Now everything seems to work fine.

For all it's worth, I have ran the command line in Terminal with a few devices. iPhone 4: iPhone: Version: 3.20 iPad 2: iPad: Version: 2.10 I have a 3GS somewhere but I can't find right now. I'll edit my answer if/when I find it. My wife has a iPhone 4S and a friend has a 5, I will try to also update once I get to run it.

I brought iPhone back to Apple Service and the guy cleaned my iPhone at the plug with the needle that you can open the sim card tray. So he cleaned it, and that was lots of dirty coming out. And after all I have to claim connection is much more stable. So you should clean it first.

If you continue to hold, you get Siri [iPhone 4S & up]; even from the power-down screen… …otherwise, you trigger fingerprint security, which requires you to touch but not press the home button from the lock screen to unlock the device [iPhone 5S & up].

One way that may require the help of an octopus is to go to Wallpaper settings click on wallpaper preview that is not the lock screen and pinch the image so it shrinks in the screen - this will get the "Cancel/Set" buttons out of the image. If you let go of the pinch, it'll bounce back, so the trick is to pinch and screen grab at the same time. Then you ...

You have to consider the time of your iphone, I mean if its a 2010 factory made iphone the reason its obvious, otherwise you have to go to an Apple Service Retail/Shop and ask for a revision cause thats not normal.

Do not open your iPhone unless you are an experienced with phone repair person . Better take it to an Apple Store or any cellphone repair shop. Otherwise, use iFix guideline. https://www.ifixit.com/Device/iPhone_5s

iFixit has a great guide about the disassembly of the iphone 5. All courtesy of the pictures goes to them. Step 11 clearly demonstrates the ribbon cables . I highly suspect that you just yanked a little bit too hard on the LCD cable and hence the black screen. I am in no way affiliated with iFixit but I recommend the use of the iSclack opening tool. It ...

Download a wifi analyser onto your phone (plenty of good free ones) and check the signal strength your getting on it when scanning for WAP's. This should help you rule out if its the signal strength, leaving either your netgear or iPhone as the culprit. See this article as well http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/ios-8-problems/2/

same issue and quite discouraged by the idea to edit 390 contacts. I started the procedure suggested by m666, exporting my the contacts from iCloud. As soon as the file has been created, voilà, something triggered contacts.app that asked the confirmation to import these 390 items, synching iCloud and Contacts. I hope this will work for others...

This doesn't directly answer your question, but I still wanted to says it. I think he gave you a different phone. If the phone was already jailbroken and the sim was taken out, I think it won't show up in Find My Phone (unless the guy goofed up did some silly things). I think he gave you someone else's (already hacked) phone and kept yours so he finish ...

Hold the power and home button until the screen turns off and back on with the Apple logo, then let go of power but keep holding home button. This should work. If you haven't jailbroken it and it still works, contact an apple staff member. (=

Your email address, which is your Apple ID, is what ties everything together. That has not changed since iMessage was introduced.

In iOS if an app does not do background processing it does not take up battery. Games should not be doing background processing. When you get low on memory iOS will send a signal to all apps so that they can reduce their memory usage and some will free memory. If there is still not enough memory for the current app iOS will terminate other apps. Thus iOS ...

Your natural instinct on an iPhone is to always open your multi-tasking and to close apps to conserve battery. This actually can poorly affect your battery. Memory in a phone and memory in a computer do not really work the same way. iOS uses memory to quickly open applications from memory. When you constantly close apps from multi-tasking and reopening them ...

Even if what you're suggesting were possible, it shouldn't be allowed for discussion here because it has the potential to circumvent a trusted security feature.

Just to basically state an implementation of an answer I found here regarding the creation of a group within the contacts tree in your Outlook. What you should do is to create a new group "mobile", and then go into you other lists - "do a list view> and group them by mobile number" - then drag all the contacts that have mobile numbers to your new group. ...

Fischer, there are two different types of software updates that occur on iOS; updates to the apps you have installed and updates to the operating system itself.

Its very simple, try Airdrop, open the notes on iphone from which you wish to transfer it, tap on Share icon, tap "AirDrop", and simultaneously enable "AirDrop" from other iphone, choose "Everyone" ,and you are done with it. Only drawback is that we have transfer notes one by one.

You are going to want to go to settings>Cellular. Then you should see a list of apps with a toggle button next to each one. Scroll down until you find the "Settings" icon. You want to turn the switch off. This will deny the settings application (which is what gets software updates) the ability to use cellular data. Hope this helped

I found the same thing with my iPhone 4S today. It's a good job that I know my way from Calais th Bruges without Satnav. I had both data roaming and EU Internet active which I now know prevented me getting data. I'll make sure that I only activate data roaming and not EU Internet in future.
