    I just spent almost 20 mins on the phone with an apple iphone rep, who only wanted to charge me for any kind of info via the phone call. He finally said he would email me the info for free. It advised me to back-up, and restore my phone which I was not comfortable doing. I decided to Google the problem and this was the first thing that came up. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, for saving me all that time and trouble!! You Rock!!

You have zoom on: Double tap with THREE fingers to turn it off, then go into Settings>General>Accessibility & turn it off for good.

Theres a accessibility feature in the phone you can turn off ... Settings>General>Accessibility and turn the zoom off.
its set to sync automatically from itunes so next time you sync you can check to make sure accessibilty isnt turn on.
hope this helps

About three days ago, I noticed that the sound on my iPhone 3GS was messed up. The alarm, keypad, and lock/unlock sounds are suddenly very quiet, almost inaudible. Yet the ringer still sounds at normal...


Check macrumors.com for possible causes and solutions.

If you don't find anything or don't have the time, resetting the phone should solve your problem.

First, make sure you have a backup of everything on the phone. iTunes should get everything except your email accounts. Then go to Settings > General > Reset

My best guess is that this is a result of an App that you installed or "upgrading" to IOS4.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.

I have an iphone 3g and it has an enlarged frozen screen, ive tried everything incl both a hard and soft reset but wen i plug it in to pc or charger and turn it back on its still enlarged


This is all you need to do.
Double-tap on its screen using 3 fingers and it's all good.
To enlarge them again, just do the same motion.

My ipod screen is enlarged


Your iPod Touch is not broken! You accidentally invoked one of the accessibility features which zooms the screen. This happens when you double-tap the screen with three fingers simultaneously. To undo it, double-tap again and drag three fingers up or down.
You can turn this feature off by going to Settings > General > Accessibility > Zoom.

All main menu icons dissapeared while installing an app from cydi


I would do a full reset on the iphone which you can get to by going to the settings and scroll to the bottom and it should give you a reset option this will delete everything but assuming you make a backup whilst in itunes you should be able to re synch it as far as contacts and anything else you want from your itunes afterwards.
