To go back to the main screen just hold down the black button on the bottom front of the handset, if that isnt working then do a manual restart on the handset, to do this you need to hold down the power and the black button for about 5-10 seconds then release, the screen will disappear and then reappear with the apple logo.

IPhone 4 VS Motorola Droid X:Smartphone Buying Suggestion Soon after Apple...


iPhone 4 VS Motorola Droid X:Smartphone Buying Suggestion

Soon after Apple released iPhone 4 in US, Motorola brought up the new Android smartphone - Droid X as a rival to iPhone 4. Now with the international launch of iPhone 4, more and more iPhone 4 smartphones are available on market for immediate sales. If you locate in Australia, you may notice that iPhone 4 is available in local stores from the morning of July 30, 2010. Which smartphone would you choose? Before buying a new smartphone, we shall have a look at the comparison: iPhone 4 vs Droid X.
The Droid X offers a dual-flash and 8-megapixel camera and record 720p HD video. While iPhone 4 with 5MP camera also records 720p videos. The Droid X has a 4.3-inch screen with 854x480, while iPhone 4 has a smaller screen at 3.5-inch but a higher display resolution at 960x640. iPhone 4 could be one of the slimmest smarphones with so much functionalities.
Even though the iOS 4 in iPhone 4 is different from Google Android in the Droid X, both operating systems support multitasking and extensive app stores. It is difficult to say which OS is better. The Droid X is attached to Verizon, and iPhone 4 with AT&T in US and Vodafone in UK and Australia. There might be slight price differences among network service providers.

It is necessary to compare the storage of Droid X to iPhone 4, as we would use the camera for HD recording. iPhone 4 with 16GB is $200, which is the same price for Motorola Droid X with 8GB built-in storage and 16GB memory card. For 32GB iPhone 4, the price is $300. A 32GB memory card is needed to increase storage in the Droid X.

If you want to use the fully functional Wi-Fi inside Motorola Droid X, you may notice that it will draw down the battery quickly. The Hot spot is an extra feature like camera which costs an additional $20 a month for 2 GB of data. Overall, iPhone 4 is more attractive for me, but recently there are reports about the reception/antenna problem.
The multimedia experience on iPhone 4 could be equal to that on Droid X. iPhone 4 supports 720p HD video playback, but the display resolution on Droid X is higher. Both Droid X and iPhone 4 support a small amount of video formats like .mp4. To play other videos like TiVo, MKV, AVI to iPhone 4, Aunsoft Video Converter is the perfect partner for smartphones like iPhone 4. You can find the quick profile for iPhone 4 with 720p HD video output. Here is the main interface of video converter for iPhone 4:

The video converter for iPhone 4 also works for Motorola Droid X, there is profile for Motorola Droid X within the Android group.

Does iphone 4 have sd cards


No. The only card you can insert in any iPhone is the sim card. You should buy a iPhone with enough memory for all the apps you want to use and for all the content, like notes, music, contact list and so on.
Although the iPhone used to come with 8 Gbyte is is really not enough as soon as you start to put apps and music on it.
New phones should have at least 32 G Byte.
But if you plan tu use a phone for a few years at least, take the 64 G byte. That goes for the android phones too. Because even when you can enter a 32 G byte memory card in an android. It will not be an extension of the main memory. You can't install apps or access lists of contacts as long as the are on the extra memory card. It is more like a had drive, from which you need to cpu the content to the main memory first, before you can use it.

    How do I turn speaker phone


      • 1 Press the green "Phone" key on the main screen of your iPhone. This key has a silhouette of a traditional hand receiver and is located on the bottom part of the screen.
      • 2 Begin to use your speakerphone by making a call or accepting a call from other participants. You can make a call by going to your "Contacts" list or activating the keyboard and dialing a number. Incoming phone calls can be accepted by pressing the "Accept" key underneath the caller ID.
      • 3 Activate the "Speaker" function on your iPhone when you are ready to use your speakerphone. This button is located above the caller's information and allows you to switch on and off with one tap of your finger.
      • 4 Put participants on hold while you use your iPhone speakerphone. There is a "Hold" key at the bottom of the calling screen that lets you speak to people without bringing callers into the conversation.
      • 5 Access your contact information over the Internet while you use your speakerphone. You can reach the main page of your iPhone by pressing the "Home" button if you are on hold. The iPhone does not allow you to play music or use other audio options while on hold because you are still on the phone.
      • 6 Adjust the volume level before you begin a conference using your speakerphone. There are volume buttons on the side of the iPhone that provide detailed control over speaker sound levels.
      • 7 Mute the speakerphone if you must leave your office or take a break from a conversation. The "Mute" key is available on the call screen and instantly cuts off your microphone and the speaker.
      • 8 Add new contacts to your iPhone that you have called on your speakerphone. You can go back to your "Recent Calls" list or the keyboard to find numbers to add to your "Contacts" list.

    Iphone was dropped on the floor then in about 10 min he was turned off


    1. Check to see if your iphone has battery power. Iphones will shut off, just like any device, if there is no battery life. You can check this by plugging your iphone into a power source (ie your computer through a USB or through a USB jack connector).
    2. If the battery has life, you might need to do a restore.
      1. Plug your iphone into your computer using your USB cable. At this point, iTunes will launch.
      2. Backup your data before proceeding as you could lose purchased songs or apps.
      3. Go to your iPHone's information page inside iTunes. You should see two buttons in the center of the main iTunes window. Select the Restore button.
      4. So long as you have already backed up and synced your phone, click the Restore button.
      5. Once this is complete, you'll need to select the Restore from backup options. This will allow you to restore email accounts, contacts, passwords, etc.
      6. You'll probably want to select all of the options when you are brought to your Sync

    What do i do after locking my iphone with too many passcode attempts


    If you have forgotten your iPhone’s Passcode you will need to restore your phone via iTunes.

    1. First you have to put your phone into the restore mode which is a slightly fiddly process.
    2. Plug your iPhone into your PC or Mac with the USB cable
    3. Press and hold the power button at the top and then slide to power off the iPhone
    4. Press the power button to power the iPhone on and keep it held while simultaneously pressing the home button
    5. After a few seconds a yellow alert triangle will appear and the iPhone will say it is iPhone Restore Mode.
    6. Open up iTunes and click on the Summary tab
    7. Click on Restore to restore your iPhone. This will reset all your iPhone’s setting to the factory defaults, including the Passcode.

    You should then follow these steps below to activate the passcode again.
    1. Click the Home button to bring up the main menu
    2. Click on Settings
    3. In the Settings screen click on General
    4. In the General screen click on Passcode Lock
    5. This will open the Set Passcode screen. Enter a memorable 4-figure code and re-enter it when prompted
    6. You will now be at the Passcode Lock screen. You can change when you are prompted to enter the Passcode. The default setting – Immediately – means you will be asked to enter it as soon as your start using the iPhone. But you can change the setting so that the prompt appears after a certain period of use
    7. Press the Home button to return to the main menu.

    Iphone wont wake from sleep


    If the Apple store has already tried to fix it and it's still having problems then you should take it back. Tell them the restore didn't fix the problem, they should swap it for a new one.
