Re: Iphone Deadspots on touch screen

First, No you cant get it repaired by anyone but apple, sorry

Second, you dont need to sign a contact to use your iPhone. You can use the iPhone as a GoPhone and buy minutes as you go, however this can end up being quite costly if you plan on using the internet or e-mail alot, i would suggest just getting the 2 yr with the 49.99 plan, this includes unlimited data 200 txt messages and 450 minutes (i think)

Hope this helped

How do I restore my iPhone 5 with my icloud account password?

Hi, make sure you have a backup of all of your files in iCloud first and to do this from your iPhone, just go to Settings >> iCloud >> Storage & Backup >> then tap "Backup Now"..............You can now do a restore, via the Settings >> General >> Reset >> Erase All Content and Settings (This only applies if your iPhone is not Jailbroken, if your iPhone is Jailbroken, there's a different procedure for that) Once you're done with the restore, "Setup your iPhone" screen will appear and just tap on the "Restore from iCloud backup".

How to Unlock iPhone 4 Since Apple is selling unlocked iPhone 4s...

How to Unlock iPhone 4

Since Apple is selling unlocked iPhone 4s internationally, it is only the United States users who are still locked on AT&T network. So if you want to use your new iPhone 4 on networks other than AT&T, like T-Mobile for example, you can use this newly released Ultrasn0w 1.0 software to unlock your phone.
Simply follow the instructions posted below to unlock your iPhone 4 on iOS 4.0.1 / 4.0 on 01.59.00 baseband.
NOTE: T-Mobile US users will have to disable 3G by navigation to: Settings->General->Network and turning the "Enable 3G" switch to OFF before installing the ultrasn0w unlock.

How to: Jailbreak iPhone 4 on iOS 4.0.1:

Step 1: Unlocking requires that your phone is jailbroken on the latest firmware. Follow the complete guide posted here to jailbreak your iPhone 4 on iOS 4.0.1 / 4.0 using JailbreakMe 2.0.

How to: Unlock iPhone 4 (Any Baseband) on iOS 4.0.1:

Step 2: Once you are done with the jailbreak, you can now unlock your iPhone on any baseband using Ultrasn0w 1.0-1 from Cydia. To do this:
  • Start "Cydia" on your iPhone.
  • Touch on "Manage" tab on the bottom.
  • Now touch on "Sources" as seen in the screenshot below:
  • Touch on "Edit" and then on "Add". You will be prompted to enter a url source as seen in the screenshot below. Type "" and touch on"Add Source" to add this repo if you haven't already.
Cydia will now automatically update your sources by following a series of automated steps.
  • After installation is completed. Search for "ultrasn0w 1.0-1" in Cydia and install this application. This app will automatically unlock your iPhone so that you can use it with any carrier.
Step 3: Now simply restart your iPhone and voila! you should now have a fully unlocked iPhone 4 !

My iphone 4 power button does not respond on pressing. Please advise me what needs to be done. Should i change replace the power button or is there any alternate method?

I don't know about replacing it but you can use Assistive Touch ( Settings/ General / Accessibility / Assistive Touch on ). If your iPhone is jailbroken , activator is the best.

The bottom half of my touch screen wont respond to touch, i cant unlock it but it will allow me to turn it off, any solutions?

if part of your screen isnt responding to touch then it could be either software or hardware related, best thing to do it back everything up via itunes and if jailbroken cydia stuff through aptbackup, then do a restore in itunes (if jailbroken shift+restore for custom firmware)
Then once it has finished see if this has corrected the problem.

If not, then you have a fault with your digitizer. This is basically a film behind the glass of the screen which tells the iphone where you fingers are etc.
You can buy a new digitizer pretty cheap from ebay, just look up a guide on how to install it (you can keep your exisiting LCD) and this will fix the problem.
