Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

Keypad problem After I dial the number and hit 'call' I get another screen where the keypad icon is greyed out. Mute , speaker and contacts work; but keypad, hold, and add call are greyed out and can't be used. Any suggestions? When I try to dial the numbers on the keypad they won't stay on the screen. I have to save a number in my contacts before I can dial it. This did not happen initially, but now I can't use the phone like a regular phone, and it's very annoying.

I installed acier theme in my iphone 4.and now the dial pad does not respond to any other numbers except *,0,1 and 2..please help.

I have the same problem but i got it fixed.
Just follow these steps,
1. Borrow another mobile phone from anyone close to you and have a miss call on your iphone.
2. Obviously, you will see a missed call on your iphone. Slide the notification to call back.
3. Once you see the call back signs (mute, keypad, speaker, add call, facetime, contacts) quickly press the home button.
4. If you successfully get into home screen, go to settings menu and turn off your screen lock (SETTINGS>GENERAL>PASSCODE LOCK)
5. And lastly, uninstall that theme and never use it again!

How to save numbers on mororolla razor phone to sim my screen is smashed so can't see what I'm doing.

  • Create a new contact in your phone by selecting one of two options. First, enter a telephone number as if you were about to dial it. When you do, you will see the option to "store" it, this button is located at the bottom left side of the screen. Just hit the button and it will take you to a screen titled "Save." Select "Create new." Choose the category you want the number to be stored as. Alternatively, add the number as a contact

    Select the "Contacts" button at the bottom right hand of the screen. This will then retrieve your full contact list. Once you are there, select the "Options" button at the bottom right side of the screen. Once you do this you will be taken to another screen titled "Options." You can either press the number "1" to select the "New contact" option or press the "Ok" button by pushing the center button on the directional pad above the number keypad. You can now add all of the information that you want.

    Enter the name of the contact. This field will already be highlighted. You can enter the name of the contact by using the number keypad below. You will then push the directional button down once to enter a mobile number, press it down again to enter the home number and then once more to enter a work number.
