Could Not Save Call Waiting Setting

I have had my iPhone for about a week and a half and I begun to realize that I never seemed to get call waiting. At first, it didn't occur to me, but yesterday I had several messages that were left for me while I was on the phone, but I was never given the option to answer the calls before they went to voicemail. In investigating the problem, I went into the settings on the iPhone and then into the phone settings. There is a preference pane for Call Waiting and when I went in there I discovered that the Call Waiting slider was switched to off. Simple enough I would assume... I slid the switch for Call Waiting to on and the phone seemed to acknowledge the change. After about 30 seconds, a message popped up reading "Could not save call waiting setting" with a button to dismiss the message. I have tried force quitting the settings application, the phone application and hard resetting the entire device. Same result every time. I'm positive that this is an AT&T issue, but unfortunately, that means that I will have to call AT&T and talk to their idiotic staff. Has anyone else experienced and/or solved this issue? Thanks, Chad

Re: Could Not Save Call Waiting Setting

Hi Chad....I believe that applying the iPhone Update and Patch v1.0.1 will heal your phone. Begin by connecting your iPhone to iTunes, which is your only method of retrieval for this patch, and click on the Check for Update Button on the Summary Screen, and when prompted, select Download and Install. Be prepared for the possibility of what may feel like a lifetime to compelete. This Update is Proactive, meaning, it will continue to patch, and heal your phone, until every single flaw and or slight corruption is healed, even if it must update your phone to straight-from-the-factory default condition. (don't you just love that new phone smell?) Please update your post whether your results are positive or negative so that other contributors including myself are aware of your status and/or developments.....good luck my friend

IPhone 6 out of space for pictures

If you're using a 16GB iPhone 6, you may have to clean up storage on your iPhone regularly to keep the device running normally. If you don't want to delete the photos shot with my iPhone camera, you can connect your iPhone to computer with the USB cable, and copy these photos to your computer. This method is an easy but efficient way to keep your iPhone photos when you want to free up your iPhone storage space.

The charge adapter maybe faulty.
If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

My iphone 4 was on 3% battery so i just turned it off but then ten minutes later i noticed on the screen it was black with the round loading symbol goin around in the middle of the screen so i plugged it...

One simple fix that really seems to be too simple to be true is getting a different USB cord. Some users have said that this seems to work for them so if you don't mind shelling out the $30 to see if this will work, go ahead and give it a try.
Another fix that also seems to be too simple to be true is a simple reinstallation of iTunes. While this may not be 'simple' in the way that it won't annoy you, it does only take a few minutes and it won't cost you the thirty bucks.
A third fix that has proven very effective is to first, connect your iPhone to your computer. Let it go through the process of starting up, and don't worry when the error message pops up again. Then, with your iPhone still connected to the computer, turn off the phone and wait about ten seconds. Then start your iPhone again, being sure to keep it connected the entire time. This fix has helped quite a few people on the different forums I visited.

hope this helps

The top half of my i phone touch-screen does not respond anymore. Has been like this for one week now. Cannot use apps on the upper half of the screen including being unable to slide to switch it off....

Sorry but your touch screen needs replacement. Take it to the apple store and see if they'll give you a replacement. If they don't there are third party iPhone Repair Services that can fix it for you. There are also free iPhone Repair guide that show you how to fix it yourself.

My iphone won't ring with incoming calls. I have checked to make sure the ringer is on and if I set the ring tone, it plays the tone so I know the speaker is working. Any fixes?

The only thing i would check is the switch on the side. Make sure its not sticking, or accidentally switched it... If its messed up, im sure Apple would replace yours! :)

I pphone not going on screen blank

one of the three connectors of cell (battery) is not attached with the iphone ,please check these three connections between cell and connectors pin of the iphone,any disconnection among them causes so.
sometimes such problem occurs due to entering moistures or waterdroplets in the cell and spreading on main circuitary of the iphone,if it is so then put your iphone( after removing its cell ) near a electrical bulb ( 40-60 watt ) for half an hour.
