Iphone, vociemail, restricted #, and monitor lighting help

I don't know where to turn here , and I'm really in need of help with my IPhone. I'm hoping you can help me. I can't find the setting where I change the time the backlighting is on. It's on ALL the time! I just got my Iphone and it won't turn off unless I turn the phone off or sleep mode it. I'm a gal with a new Iphone, and no one to help me out. Can you? And when people call me now, (after I put my SIM in my Iphone,) they don't get my voicemail even though I recorded it on my IPhone, and they dont' see my number on THEIR phone! It comes up restricted.....any ideas???? I'd be really grateful if you could help me at all............Robbie

Re: iphone, vociemail, restricted #, and monitor lighting...

For your brightness problem, go to your home screen and touch settings, then brightness, and make sure your auto-brightness is on, that will allow the Iphone to adjust the brightness up and down as the day goes on and you need more or less light.

as for the restricted problem, what you need to do is call AT&T. More than likely there is a problem with your account. Things like this most technicians at AT&T can say..."Let me look, oh yeah...don't know why that was clicked, there your fixed"

Hope this helps :)

Sync Iphone with a Linux OS?

Yes it's possible. <br /> However here's the main issue at hand. Apple refuses to make a linux compatible iTunes for iphone users that just don't wanna conform to Windows or Mac. <br /> So here's the solution to the problem. Forget about WINE, forget about trying to instal the mac version or the windows version of iTunes. It's not gonna happen. And if it can. Your a god... <br /> But if your like me and really don't wanna fight your system just to get a phone hooked up and music put on it. Download 'GTKPod' it's an itunes like emulator that's build specifically for linux. <br /> Syncing music and stuff to your iphone is SIMPLE with that program. <br /> If you need further help with it. Don't hesitate to email me here, and I'll hel you with whatever support you need.

How To Save Battery On Your iPhone or iPod Touch

<p><span><span> </span>Is your iPhone or iPod Touch's battery level always depleting quickly? Do you not have enough juice to get you through the day? Here are some quick tips to conserve your battery life and help you get through the day while you are Facebooking, sending texts, and calling.</span><br /> <p><span><span> </span>First, lets make sure you can monitor your batter level. This is how you will turn on the percentage of battery display.</span><br /> <p><span>1.<span> </span></span><span>Go to your home-screen.</span><br /> <p><span>2.<span> </span></span><span>Open up the Settings App.</span><br /> <p><span>3.<span> </span></span><span>Tap General then Usage</span><br /> <p><span>4.<span> </span></span><span>Where it says battery percentage, make sure the switch is in the on position.</span><br /> <p><span><span> </span>Now that you can monitor your battery life, here are a few things you should continually do to save battery.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Don't keep multiple apps running if you don't have to. iPhones and iPod Touches have multitasking to run multiple apps at once, but this can use a lot of battery. To delete tasks, double tap the home button and then hold down an icon at the bottom of the screen. Once the apps begin to wiggle, tap the X by the app to stop the task (note: this won't delete the app, it will only stop it from running).</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another battery saving setting is not fetching email quite as often, I mean, do you really need to check your email every 15 minutes or hour? Fetching data uses a lot of battery, to disable or not as frequently fetch for data, go to the Settings app again. Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars then Fetch New Data and set it to Manually so to check email, go to the email app and click the refresh button.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Your iPhone has an adjustable brightness, and a higher brightness wastes more battery, to change the brightness: go to your Settings app. Go to Brightness and turn your brightness down. You don't necessarily need to turn it all the way down(especially when you are in bright lighting conditions, kind of ironic that you need higher brightnesses in brighter environments), but if you are in a pitch black room, then there is no reason to have the brightness above the minimum level.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another good habit is turning off bluetooth and wifi when you are not using them, to do this, go to your Settings app again. Go to Wi-Fi and turn of wifi. To turn of bluetooth, go to General then Bluetooth and turn it off.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>If you don't necessarily use an app a lot or at all, turn off Push Notifications. To do this scroll all the way down on your Settings app, and choose that particular app. This will only be useful on an app that gets information from the internet. In the particular app that you chose, usually there will be a Push Notifications option, and you can disable this, this will help your battery because your iPhone constantly tries to search for data with these on. Also, when installing apps, you can disable this then.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another good way to save battery (iPhone only) is to switch from the 3g(fast internet)radio to Edge(slower internet) radio. On the iPhone, you have twice as much battery with Edge radio. To change between the two, go to your Settings app once again. Go to General then Network and where it says Enable 3g switch it to off. You can/should do this when you aren't heavily surfing the internet, checking Facebook, or downloading apps. Don't use this with apps that require heavy internet usage.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>One final tip to conserve battery is changing the amount of time until the iPhone/iPod Touch goes into sleep mode. If you forget to put it in sleep mode, it will stay on and waste battery in your pocket, etc. To change the amount of time to save battery, go to your Settings app again. Go to General then Auto-Lock and change it to something short such as 1 or 2 minutes.</span><br /> <p><span>These tips will significantly prolong your battery, use them to your advantage.</span><br />

My iPhone stop ringing. It only vibrares. Also the keyboard does not sounds. However I can listen to the radio . What can I do? Thanks a lot. Dolores

Chances are, you turned ON the Silent switch on the side of the iPhone. You'll know that it's turned ON if you see a little red dot (for iPhone 3G & 3GS) or a red line (for iPhone 4). To locate it, refer to the image below: 16aae05.jpg

Iphone is calling out as restricted how do i fix it

I would call your service provider. You may have accidentally set that setting on your service. I don't see anything on the iPhone itself to fix it.

My iphone keeps freezing and it wont go to main screen when i press the home button

Press the power button and the home button for 5-10 seconds it would turn off...if you have OS 3.0 or later then use Blackra1n RC3 and it will go in recovery mode after it enters recovery iTunes...your iPhone will detect you iPhone in Recovery mode,in iTunes click restore,it will ask you to Restore and on that and you`ll be will get back to its original settings and its done..but if you don`t use an official carrier like AT&T you wont be able to activate it and you would need to use WI-FI and download two software`s from the blackra1n icon on your iphone...One is Cydia and the other is sn0w that allows your phone to work with all carrier`s so do it and tell me here.....
