I had a problem with my iPhone camera earlier today. I held the on off button and the control button under the space bar. It shut down. I left it off for a couple of minutes then turned it back on. (pressed and held power button a second). All was well. Hope this works for you. Best to you. Jimmy

Hey Guys,

my iPhone now works again but i had to use the restore function with iTunes.
The camara works fine when you dont't let iTunes setup your backup. So you have to choose the "configure new iPhone"-option after the restore.

The problem:
you'll loose your sms, contact favorites, web favorites, mail settings and the webapps etc...

i talked with the iPhone support in germany a lot and they said they'd do nothing other but flashing the phone and installing a new software. all you data would be lost neither.

hope I could help
sorry for my english
Flo
and greetings from Munich/Bavaria/Germany :-)

On my iphone5 it wont let me open up my Facebook.i touch the icon and it just blinks.My husband was playing with my settings


double click on the home button to see all your open applications and close each one out by "tossing" them upward. Then restart Facebook by clicking on the app icon. If this does not work, check to see if there is an update needed in the App Store application under "updates". All else fails, remove the app using iTunes and sync you iPhone, then download again from the App Store.

WHEN I TRY TO SEE RECENT CALL HISTORY THE I PHONE 3 GS REVERTS TO THE HOME SCREEN. IS THERE ANY WAY OF RESOLVING THIS?


hello,ensure you are not clicking on the key wrongly,i would advice you put the phone off and on back to see if the problem stops.if it doesn't i would also advice you ensure you close any application you are not making use of.it could also be as a result of accumulated opening of applications. if that does not stop the problem,i would suggest you get the phone flashed by a mobile phone authorized repair engineer around you.
wish you good luck,
take care.

Shutter remains closed on apple iphone 3GS


1. Sync phone with iTunes to back up your data. 2. Choose Restore option from iTunes window (first screen when you plug the phone into iTunes) 3. Before you restore from backup, test the camera again. If it works, then it was a software related issue. If it doesn't, the camera module is not working and needs to be replaced. 4. Restore from backup, or take the phone in for repair if the shutter is still not opening.

This picture comes up on the front of my phone of a chord and a pic of the itunes app. I can't get to the main phone to use it


sounds like its stuck in DFU Mode

http://www.iphonealley.com/tips/save-your-iphone-with-recovery-mode


If iTunes doesn’t see your iPhone’s cry for help, you may need to invoke recovery mode. Although it’s an extremely helpful mode, how to get there isn’t very apparent. Read on for the how-to!
As arcane as “recovery mode” sounds, it’s actually very simple:
Disconnect your iPhone and turn it off by holding the “Sleep/Wake” button for about five seconds and then sliding the red slider. If your iPhone is already off, there’s no need to turn it on and then off again. Once it’s off, press and hold the “Home” button and plug your iPhone into a Mac or PC with iTunes installed. Keep holding the “Home” button until you see a dock cable pointing to the iTunes icon. iPhones running older software will display a yellow triangle and text which says “Please Connect to iTunes”. Once you see this image, you can release the Home button.


Open iTunes (if it’s not already open) and you will be told that “iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.” Click “OK” and you will be taken to the iPhone pane. Click “Restore” and you’re done, it’s that easy! Depending on the extent of your iPhone’s ills, it may take some time to do a full restore. Once you’re done, you should again have a perfectly working iPhone.
If this doesn’t solve your problem, you may need to restore using DFU (Direct Firmware Upgrade) mode. To enter this mode, plug in your iPhone and turn it off. Hold down the “Home” and “Sleep/Wake” buttons for about twelve seconds. You’ll briefly see the silver Apple logo and then your phone will appear to turn back off. Release the “Sleep/Wake” button but continue to hold the “Home” button until you see a message in iTunes stating that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Choose “Restore” and you should be fixed right up!
If this doesn’t fix your problem, your iPhone may require a visit to the Genius Bar

My Iphone 3G, 32GB desktop icons are opening the wrong app.


you need to calibrate your screen. the touch sensor has moved so when you press on an icon the phone sees it as another icon. this can be done in the phone's touch settings
