If you've tried restoring to a back up, and it has not fixed the problem, that indicates the error has been backed up to your most recent iPhone backup. If you're trying to avoid doing a full restore, i would recomend going to an older backup, that may preserve your contacts and calendars.Hope this helps, and good luck!

My icons are too big and i cant reduce the size???


Please follow this steps to set back the font size or icons of your Iphone.

* Tap the "Settings" menu from the iPhone home screen.

* Tap "Accessibility."

*Tap the word "Off" next to "Zoom" to turn the Zoom feature on.

*Return to the iPhone home screen.

Tap the iPhone with three fingers twice in succession. The home screen icons will be magnified to 200 percent. To adjust the zoom level, touch the screen with three fingers then move them up to increase the zoom, and down to lower it. The next time you tap the screen twice with three fingers, the iPhone will automatically return to your custom zoom level.

I was wiping my screen when all my home page icons became massive and now wont go back

This is one of the Accessibility features of the iOS. What you should do is tap on the screen using 3 fingers at the same time to zoom out to normal screen size.

To turn off that feature, go to Settings>General>Accessibility> Turn OFF Zoom or any of the other stuff in there if you don't need it.

The screen got big and i cannot do anything anymore. i cannot scroll to go to settings

Hi, So for whatever reason, 30-40% of iPhone's on the market automatically enable the zoom feature. Its and easy fix, simply Double Tap the screen with "3" Fingers it will go back to normal, then you need to go to -Settings, General, Accessibility and disable ZOOM! Also you can disable it in itunes with the device plugged in on the Summary page at the bottom, it is called Configure Universal Access.

Have a Great Day!

Big icons on my iphone 3gs home screen.plz solve this problem

You must have zoomed-in the screen accidentally. It's easy to zoom-out, just double-tap anywhere on the screen using 3 of your fingers (simultaneously) and everything will go back to normal.

And in case you want to zoom-in again, just do the same thing.

My i pod wont go back to normal size

Are saying your iPod screen is zoomed in?
I don't think this is even a problem...

Maybe you just accidentally zoomed in and what you gotta do to zoom back out is this: double-tap anywhere on your iPhone screen using 3 of your fingers (simultaneously).

And in case you want to zoom in again, just do the same thing.

Maybe, you accidentally zoomed in the screen of your iPhone, to zoom out, use three of your fingers to double-tap the screen simultaneously. Do the same thing to zoom back in.

Hi, this is a feature for the iPhone. You can just zoom it back out again by double tapping the screen with 3 fingers. To switch the feature off, go settings, accessability and turn "zoom"to off. If it is on, double tap with 3 fingers zooms and same zooms out.
