Ah! sounds like your home screen is set for 10 secs. try going to settings, than to home screen. than scroll down to "time out"... you can set how long you want your phone to stay in an app. you can even set it to never and it will only close a program if you end it yourself.

hope this helps.

Ipod touch screen is unresponsive but it makes sounds like normal


Fix an Unresponsive Ipod Screen
Many of today's electronic devices including cell phones, music players and portable game systems have a touch screen.
When a touch screen fails, it does not respond when you tap it with your finger or a stylus.
This can happen due to several reasons, such as a screen protector, dust or improper calibration.
You can often fix an unresponsive touch screen by cleaning it or resetting the device.
Remove the plastic touch screen protector sheet.
Some protector sheets are too thick and prevent the touch screen from responding to your touch. If you must use a protector screen, only use one that is licensed for your specific device.
Wipe the screen with a soft microfiber cloth.
Clean off any dirt, dust or fingerprints on the screen.

Dry your hands thoroughly.
The touch screen will not respond if your hands are wet.
Reset the device.
If your device does not have a "Reset" button, remove the battery, memory card or SIM card, then reinstall them.

Delete any third-party applications you recently installed.
Some third-party applications can cause your device to lock up or freeze.

Recalibrate the touch screen.
Look in the device's Settings menu for a calibration option and follow the prompts.

My Ipod touch screen suddenly began to display everything huge. What happened?


Hi mariaelenaga,

To set a minimum font size for messages:


Choose "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" > Minimum Font Size, then choose Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large, or Giant.


Also, you may need to try the following:


Restarting and Resetting iPod touch

If something isn't working right, restarting, force quitting an application, or resetting iPod touch will likely solve the problem.


Restart iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.

Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPod touch. To turn iPod touch back on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.


If you can't turn off iPod touch or if the problem continues, you may need to reset. A

reset should be done only if turning iPod touch off and on doesn't resolve the problem.


Force quit an application: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch

for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then press and hold the Home button

until the application quits.


Reset iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the
same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

This information was sourced from the iPod Touch official user guide at:

http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPod_touch_3.0_User_Guide.pdf


Hope this helps.

Best regards,

CellPhBuddy.

Applications dont work properly


This is generally a problem with the app that you have installed and not with your ipod touch. I've had this happen with several apps that were designed before OS 3.0 came out. The only thing to do is to wait for an update from that app.

My tmobile dash keeps going back to the home screen


Hi jamari140,

A few questions to get a better idea of what this might be:

1) Are there any applications that open successfully?
2) Which keys/buttons are you pressing to enter these apps?
3) Have you been experiencing any issues with the keyboard (incorrect key sequences or letters, etc.)?

Please respond to the above and we'll dive a little deeper into what's going on here.
Thanks!
