I ended up calling their support on the phone and a staff member changed it for me. Easy solution if you can get through the customer queue

I may have a solution with the already described way of re-importing transferred playlists and songs from the device to a Mac to put them onto another device. That includes a 3rd party software. When I get a new MacBook Pro at work, I use the software "iExplorer" to transfer all my contact data from my iPhone 5 back into the new Macbook Pro. That also does ...

You can export a group of contacts. So first create a group, then add contacts to it. Theres no menuoption for it, but you can rigthclick on the group and select Export vCard-group… Or you can select desired contacts to export, File -> Export… -> Export vCard-card… This will give you one vCard-file containing one or more contacts. Then you can share the ...

Turns out, that Outlook had synchronized thousands of contacts from MS CRM. Deleting them from Outlook solved the problem.

Have you tried this? Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings (c.f. http://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT4137#erase your device) If you cannot erase this way, Apple says (down a bit on that page) that you ought to restore using iTunes, which won't be helpful without the original owner's iTunes backup. If the device is locked via "Find ...

Yes, you definitely will double the data sent, if one uses two apps for the same account. However, using different programs may be useful. For example, if you want to separate your professional Exchange E-mail from your personal accounts. This way, there is a logical separation, and you run less risk of accidentally sending out a personal mail on a ...

If you use two mail apps for the same account you will be downloading the same information from the mail server twice. Which will result in around double data traffic. Emails isn't usually so much data per email but that depends of course on what you receive and how many emails that is going to be downloaded. If you want you can check how much data that ...

The transfer purchases part should be your least worry. This only backs up the purchased apps and music (occasionally people also have videos - I don't). All this extra information backed up in general takes up much less space on your PC than the app contents (think spotify) and camera roll photos which are backed up by default by iTunes to your C drive and ...

The only way this can be done is by using Settings > General > Restrictions to disable the use of the camera completely. A side effect is that FaceTime is also disabled. There is no other mechanism built-in to do what you want.

Here is a solution : Make a backup of your iPhone to iTunes. Explore the backup. To do so, iExplorer is nice. If necessary, export the file History.plist and view it with TextWrangler.

I ran into this issue before and the way I got it fixed was by resetting the password to the apple id.

No you cannot modify the white headphones you got. I'm assuming that your external mic is connected to some sort of audio panel right? If that's the case then you'll have to use an audio panel out to microphone in cable. Or if you want a direct connection to your iPhone you could try using something like this; ...

If you want now in 2015 there's an extra step that allows you to send audio to multiple devices through your macbook. http://weblog.rogueamoeba.com/2012/02/12/send-audio-from-ios-to-multiple-speakers-with-airfoil/ Meaning iPhone to mac, mac to multiple devices.

You'll only lose something if you had a purchased medium (music, app, ...) on the device that was taken down from the iTunes Store in the meantime. For example, if a developer deletes their account, all their apps will disappear from the store and they won't be available through your Purchases section ever again, so if you don't have the .ipa, you can't ...

I understand the apprehension! In reality, though, you do not stand to lose anything. The only reason to transfer those purchases to your computer would be to save bandwidth and time by not re-downloading everything. You will still lose associated app data (e.g. login information, cache, etc.), but that would happen even if you did back up those apps to ...

App information can be viewed using iExplorer: Clicking on the disclosure triangle reveals different dates, and I assume the most recent date on a folder (excepting the tmp folder in this example) is the date of the last update, either when released or installed. What's interesting from this screenshot is that Chrome was loaded in the background, but I ...

You should be able to activate the phone via iTunes. Connect the phone via USB to your computer and launch iTunes. It should guide you automatically.

No, there is no general purpose remote control on iOS. I don't follow the jailbreak community closely, but you might get some other capabilities there. From a non-jailbroken scheme, you have these small elements of what you ask: Air Parrot type software to AirPlay a PC but no capability to remote control MDM tools like Casper Focus to remotely place an ...

presumably, they both only can see 802.11b 2.4GHz & 20MHz bandwidth. Can you check those are available on the network you're trying to connect to? My old 3G [occasional iPod these days] can see my wifi if I don't trap it out with 'modern' tech.

Why there is no way to share a photo to whatsapp or evernote? There is a way to share a picture to Evernote with an Extension which has to be turned on first. WhatsAppDevs haven't implementet that yet. This is only possible if you give the app access to ALL of your photos. You just want to share one. Privacy is so constructed in iOS you can get ...

With the Sharing Extensions in iOS8 it's possible to share singe photos with an app. Evernote, Facebook and a lot of other apps are providing an extension for this (which must be enabled first) nowadays, I'm not aware of something similar for WhatsApp though.

On iOS, Apps need to ask the user/the system to grant them access to the Photo service. No app can access only one photo. It's either all or none. FYI, this is Apple's security policy.

You can't rent on a mac and then start looking at it on Apple tv and later finish watching it on another device (including the Mac). I spent 4 hrs on hold and 4 contacts at apple care and eventually got this answer. If someone can say for sure this is not rte. I would like to know.

Advantages: more security more features: quick reply, continuity (if you have Mac & Yosemite ) Disadvantages: it will run slowly you won't get a lot of the features that 5S and above have could decrease battery life If you have experience with ssh and jailbreaking, I would say go ahead but make sure you can downgrade using ssh just in case you ...

In case anybody is looking for an answer like I was, here's another one. I've been looking for months. Someone had told me that the app has to be running in order for the change to stick. So, being desperate, I tried that. Turns out (FOR ME), I got a message saying that cellular data was turned off for the app. I went back to check if it really was, and ...

Put it in recovery mode and restore from iTunes. To put it in recovery mode, turn the phone off if possible (by holding down the power button), if not possible hold down both the power and home buttons to do a hard power off. Finally, connect the Lightning cable while holding the home button, the phone should power up and then display the recovery mode ...

If you're asking if you can make calls or receive texts while connected to the hotspot, then yes, you can! However, if you're asking if you can use cellular internet, then I'm afraid that is not possible. (Mildly technical explanation ahead!) The reason is that, when connected to WiFi, the iPhone funnels all requests through that Wifi connection to the ...

First, make sure you're connected to WiFi to update the apps. Second, are the other apps updating without any issues? If so, try uninstalling the troublesome app(s) and reinstalling them. If none of those options work, try logging out of your iCloud account (under Settings App > iCloud, or under Settings App > App Store) then signing back in; it could be ...

Apple doesn't back up music files as part of iOS backups since they either came from iTunes Match / iTunes in the Cloud or they came from a computer. You should try a tool like PhoneView to see if the files are still on the storage and just the catalog has become missing or corrupt. You could reconnect it to the computer that has the music. You could ...

It's not possible for a store-approved app to add a Notification Center widget as there are no public APIs for controlling Wi-Fi and Bluetooth power. There might be private ones you could access with an app signed for enterprise or developer use, but using control center is a better idea for this.

You can toggle directly by swiping up from the very bottom of the screen… ...from the lock screen, home screen or in most apps [in some apps it's difficult to get the swipe to be recognised if the app uses the same part of the screen for a function.]

Don't do it in 'device' do it 'on the compy' in Music/Playlists - should be underneath the device list.

Other than they didn't actually open it yet - reading on the lock screen doesn't tag it as read - most likely is they switched off Read Receipts for some paranoid reason. Either that or you're blocked - there's no way to tell that, unless you ring them & get bounced straight to voicemail every time… though their phone could be off. Blocked messages ...

I keep fully charging my iPhone 4s and using it throughout the day. Every couple of days my phone is dying at 7% 20% etc. I have researched this and many people are experiencing the exact same thing. The same percentages and are fully charging it! I think it is just a problem with iPhone 4s'due to reasearch. My phone was second hand and off eBay and someone ...

You really don't give us much to go on, like what the reasons where and such. BUT, when it comes to Apple, a lot has to come down to the App Reviewer and if they had a good day or not. I have had one rejected, and submitted it again, changing a font and color, and it was then successfully accepted into the App Store. At the end of the day though, they are ...

The contacts can be cached on the phone hence why they show up if you search for them, although they are not going to be retrievable. The easiest way to get the contacts back will be importing the v-card files into iCloud.com/contacts under the settings, there is an import button. Did you have the email account synced to any applications that are on a ...

Yes, it is possible to have more than 1 week of history... by upgrading the iPhone to iOS 7 or newer. On iOS 7, Safari keeps roughly 1 month of history.

I had the same problem in Mail / OS X 10.10.2. After long searches for an answer, I solved the problem simply inserting again my passoword for the SMTP account. Even though the stored password was correct, it didn't work until I inserted again the password. Go figure why it didn't work before !!

I exactly the same problems as you had, so I wrote an app to fix them. I have released "WiFi Priority" on the app store this week. You can simply create a configuration profile with it, which prevents the device from auto joining the specified network. However, you are still able to manually join this network by simply tapping on it in your network list. ...

tubedogg was right..EDGE is only a Data signal and doesn't support voice calls. same goes with LTE as well, momentarily LTE voice calls have not come into existence except few operators from US, UK & china.
