    i also had this problem, after restarting my jailbroken iphone 3g 2.2.1 the dailer didn't want to start anymore.



    removed kate and restarted and still the same problem, besides i didn't even see kate in my springboard.



    then i came to this page and uinstalled Dev rIp and Mobile enhancer and restarted my iphone and was so happy to see its working again.

    thanks for all your suggestions.  My Iphone works again!


    Uninstall Kate, Mobile Enhancer, and Rip Dev. 
    That will fix your dialer freezing up.

If after the jailbreak you can't make dial calls because the phone dialer freezes and goes back to the main menu, try this:

1- Uninstall Kate from Installer: this is what everyone recommends, seems to work for a lot of people but didn't work for me.

2- Then go to Installer again and uninstall these apps:

A) Mobile enhancer
B) RIP DEV preferences

3- Reboot your iPhone.

That's what I did and got my dial pad back again.

I got the same problem and fixed by accident.
go to settings-> RiP Dev,
disable all KATE functions.
then keep going, get into KATE, disable it.

good luck

If you've installed Ripdev, go to
Settings
Ripdev (appears after Photos in the list)
RiP Dev Products
Licenses - Kate
Purchase a license (or use the trial)

Your phone will work after doing this.

Inserting contacts phone numbers in phone


iPhone or android

It's simple.
Open your dialer.
Type number.
Instead of dialing find a + sign on the screen, not on any dialer number.
Tap on it.
It will ask you to save number. As new contact or to existing contract.
Tap your required option.
Enter the name. And other details. That's it.



And second option is.
Open contact app.
Find an option of add new contact.
Enter details.
And that's it.

Everytime i open the app on my ipod touch i enter my password then it freezes then crashes and goes back to the menu. I can open up and folder or pictures before it freezes, what can i do?, is there away...


Are you entering the correct password?
There is a way to get your files if your iPod touch is jailbroken.
You can access the root folder by using iPhone Explorer or Winscp.
You have to have OpenSSH installed on your phone. You can download it in Cydia.
If your phone is not jailbroken, I believe you can just delete the application and then download it again.
No need to worry about the payment because when you buy an application in the App Store, you can download it as many times as you want provided you use the same account.

Why can't I open my smurf village app?? It freezes at te Calvin screen and then goes blac and goes to my hone screen. Help??please??


i would suggest a hard reset. this will turn your iphone or ipod off and back on. to do this hold the sleep/wake button and home button at the same time for about 10 seconds. once it turns back on, try the app again. if this does not work, i would try deleting and then re-downloading the app form the app store.

My instinct is stuck on the dial pad and speed dial area


I had the same problem, call sprint and tell them the problem and they should exchange it for you, the problem is that the screen colapsed just enough to be touching that area of the phone. Don't go to a sprint store all they will tell you is its not under warranty and insurance should cover it. 100.00. hell no.
Its free replacement if you call sprint......

I CAN'T CALL OR HANG UP FROM MY IPHONE BUT OTHER KEY PAD WORKS.WHAT DO I DO?


am assuming you JB your phone recently?

If yes, then the dialer freezing issue is caused by few apps from Installer. I faced the same issue and I ended up restoring and re-JB without selecting Installer. If you would like to keep Installer, the Apps that you need to remove are:

- Kate
- Mobile Enhancer
- RIP DEV Preferences

Just go to Installer and remove those and restart your iPhone, the freezing and crashing should stop.

As of upgrading to 2.2.1 for JB purposes, it's 100% jailbreak-able and it works well. But I am not 100% sure regarding yell0wsnow. (I don't unlock, I only JB - sorry)

Hope this was helpful smile.gif

Is this phone capable of voice recognition calling?


Yep, just go to the App Store and search for 'melodis voice dialer'. Tap Free, then tap Install, enter your iTunes account password and it will install.

Now you'll have a program called Dialer on your home screen that you can tap to start voice dialing.
