Question about Apple iPhone 3G

1 Answer

Call only lasts 10 seconds

My phone had full service but would only make or recieve calls for about 10 seconds then it would drop the call. An apple rep at the local store advised I reset the phone. This resolved my problem for now but I do not want to take a chance that this is a problem that will come back to haunt me when the phone warranty is out.

If anyone else is having this problem please let me know.

Thank you.

I keep getting dropped calls on my Samsung Galaxy S4. What can I do? Never happened before last week.


If you have ample signal then its probably your phone. I had an old phone that would start squealing when I talked on it for more than 2 minutes. Verizon should be able to give you a different phone if you have insurance.

Press and hold both the POWER and the HOME buttons at the same time for 5 to 10 seconds to force restart it. Don't release until you see the apple logo.

Try this, turn phone on holding power and home at same time. Release power button after 10 seconds and continue holding home for another 30 seconds. The phone should boot into DFU recovery mode, but screen may stay blank. Plug into iTunes it will detect phone as being in recovery mode and it will offer to restore it for you. Once done restore your last back up in iTunes and you are good to go.

My iphone 2g only shows the apple for 10 seconds then shuts down


You need a full system restore, plug into itunes and click restore, apple will guide you through the rest. This will delete all data but it will sync it back to the last time that you synced your iphone.

Iphone ringing but viberation not working


This sounds like a hardware problem.

Please don't open the iphone up yourself as this will void the warrenty. (1 year from purchase).

Also make sure it is switched to vibrate on the side of the phone and in the settings.

if you wish to return the ipod for service, you can find a local apple reseller by calling apple on 1-800-MY-APPLE

Or you can visit an apple retail store by visiting http://www.apple.com/retail/

Hope this helps.

Nathan.

Here's one more thing to try... You'll need a clock with seconds.
Hold the "Power/Lock" and "Home" buttons for 10 full seconds. Without releasing the "Home" button, release the "Power/Lock" button... continue holding the "Home" button for another 10 full seconds.
This should completely reset the phone to the factory shipping level.
NOTE: The timing is crucial, you must be very precise or it won't change anything and you'll have to start over.
Try watching the How-to Jailbreak video on this site (http://www.iknowapple.net) for the timing. Call if you want help.

is our phone been dropped? for signal problems, check your service provider/carrier. However, first try power off our phone and take out the battery and put it back in after few seconds. If still having issues, check with your service center for assistance on how to get it repaired.
