How to change your iPhones background

It is possible to have custom backgrounds for your iPhone and not just the default ones they provide you with, here is how to do so.
First you must find a background you like, here is a link to a good website for them: (http://iphone-wallpapers.org/) Save your desired background to a new folder and remember where that folder is.
Once you have done this open your iTunes and plug in your iPhone, after it has finished Syncing select it in from the menu on the left. Now at the top of the page select the tab labelled "Photos" and check the box that says "Sync Photos from". Now click the drop down box next to the check box and select "Choose folder..." Find the folder that you saved your new background in and press enter. Once you have done all this re-sync your iPhone and unplug it.
Now unlock your iPhone and go to your "Settings" app and select "Wallpaper" Press the image of the iPhones locked and Home screen states and select "Photo Library" Your desired background should be in here, if not go back and make sure you've done everything correctly. Select your new background and confirm it by pressing "Set" Here you can choose between having it as just the lock screen background, just the Home screen background, or both, select the one that you wish and you are done. Press your home button and you should how have your new background.
Hope this helps someone. :)

Updated iphone 5 and now my weather map has a black radar background indtead of a white background???


Since I don't have an iPhone myself, there's the possibility it was part of the upgrade - possibly a setting addition. Most likely, it's a setting issue that will require some searching in either the program settings or the phone settings related to those programs.e

Have you tried contacting your carrier in case it's an issue they've been contacted about already?

I know a couple of people that have iPhones but I don't know what versions so I'll try getting access to them and look for more info.

forgot iphone 3g pin


HI If you are asking for pin contact your service provider , he will give you a default pin . If you try pin more than few predefined no of times your phone will ask PUK code which can also be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and every mobile number . Donot try PUK code many times or else your sim will be blocked and you will need a new sim.
Contact your sim customer care department over phone. Its free of cost to get the pin or puk no.

Go to the nearest service outlet of your service provider they can also help you.

There is no other go than the above procedure only your service provider can give it nobody else in this world nor any software.

iphone no incoming or outgoing calls possible


Make sure "airplane mode" is set to off

Check your sim card is properly inserted
You should be prompted for the sim pin number when the iphone loads up (if it has one set). If the pin number is not entered the sim card will not register with your provider.


If you open settings, what is next to "carrier" ?
it should state your provider there.
If it doesn't, tap it and see if it will list your carrier, by default the iphone is set to automatic, you may need to manually select your provider.

If none of this works, give a detailed description of what has been tried and any other details you can
