How to extend battery time for i phone?


Ensure any unneeded apps are stopped and not running in the background. Some apps such as facebook / twitter / etc may need to be completely uninstalled or logged out to keep them from running.
Turn down the screen brightness, Generally turning the screens brightness down till it can still be easily seen but not overly bright can increase cell phone battery by up to 20%
Shut off wifi / bluetooth / gps when not required. Disable Wifi / bluetooth, and GPS will also increase your phones battery time.

Ensure a full charge, most devices (iphones included) usually require a minimum of 8 solid hours to charge, even when they say full, they are not actually "FULL". Make sure your device gets at least 8 hours of charge time before use, and don't allow the battery to drain all the way before the next charge.

Apple iPhone Battery Saving Guide The Apple iPhone doesn't have the best battery...


Apple iPhone Battery Saving Guide
The Apple iPhone doesn't have the best battery life in the world but if you follow this simple guide it should provide you with a longer battery life.



1. Turn down the brightness: You can reduce the battery consumption by turning down the brightness of the screen. Select Settings, Brightness, and then drag the slider to around the 25 percent mark, or as low as you can stand.

2. Turn Wi-Fi and Bluetooth off: From the main menu, tap Settings, Wi-Fiand select the "Off" switch. Same goes with Bluetooth; if you're notusing a Bluetooth headset, make sure the Bluetooth radio is deactivated(Settings, General, Bluetooth).

3. Check e-mail less frequently: If you are using Pop Mail then you can save battery by checking it less frequently. Select Settings, Mail, Auto-Check, and pick either the "every 30 minutes" or (better still) "every hour" options.

4. Sync less frequently: If you sync with an Exchange server either turn it to manual or set it only to check periodically

5. Make sure "Auto-Lock" is on: TheiPhone will keep its bright screen burning unless you manually pressthe lock/sleep control. If you haven't already, make sure the iPhone's"Auto-Lock" feature is on: tap Settings, General, Auto-Lock, and then pick a time interval (the shorter the better).

6. Turn off the equalizer: Apple has always suggested turning off the iPhone’s built-in equalizer to conserve battery life. Tap Settings, iPod, Equalizer, then spin the roulette wheel up to Off.

My phone wont turn on when i plug it up.


Holding the home and lock button at the same time reboots the phone. Press and hold the power button for about 2 seconds, the apple logo should come on then may go dark. Depending on how much data you have on your phone it could take a few minutes to boot up, just like your computer would.

My iphone wont turn on


Put it on the charger and let it sit there until the battery shows up on the screen. I had the same problem before too. Its probably just dead.

Iphone screen get dark in the middle of the conversation


Changing the auto lock setting will improve that.
  1. Click the settings icon.
  2. Click the general option.
  3. Press the auto lock option.
  4. Change the settings to your heart's desire.
The phone will dim 10 seconds before whatever the time amount selected is. For example, if you chose 60 seconds for autolock, in 50 seconds, it will start to dim.

Remember, changing that option to "Never" will drain your battery life much faster if you forget to lock your phone!

How can I improve my iPhone's battery life?


A recent research conducted on cellphones (smartphones) revealed that most of your battery life is drained by "Internet" and "calls". The more you use your phone for any of these two, the faster your battery drains. Next on the list is "Search for network" which consumes quite a bit of your battery power.
Smaller culprits are WiFi, Bluetooth, Screen brightness, themes, Vibration, etc.
* Reduce screen brightness to minimum
* turn off WiFi/3G/4G when not required (same with Bluetooth)
* if you are out of network area, turn off the mobile network so you cell doesn't keep searching for a network.
* If possible reduce internet usage on your cell phone to improve battery life (ie. if you have a laptop handy, use it!)
* Use a darker wallpaper
* Vibration takes up more battery than ringtones
* use a simple theme
* Dont keep your cell phone charging for long periods (eg. overnight)
* If you plan to buy a new battery, buy a branded authentic one
Hope this helped, thanks for using FixYa!

Iphone 3gs wont charge, wont switch on, not showing on itunes! just dead


The only thing you can do with this issue is :

Hold the sleep /wake button and the home button at the same time for 2 full minutes

if you see a white apple appear- your good - just charge for 4 hours you should be fine

if the iphone still dose not turn on then - it need service

If you just see an apple logo or your phone does not turn on, there is a software problem and you will need to restore your iPhone. I didn't want to hear it, because now I had to redo everything; but it's the only solution.

Put your iPhone into recovery mode.

To put your iPhone in recovery mode:
Step 1: Plug in your iPhone to your computer, make sure your sound is turned on and not muted.
Step 2: Hold the top corner button for two seconds. You should hear a sound.
Step 3: Now, still holding the top power button, immediately press the home button and hold both buttons for 10 seconds. You should hear another sound from your computer.

Step 4: Release the power button but *continue holding the home button*, for another 30 seconds.
Step 5: Meanwhile, continue holding the Home button and open iTunes. Wait for it to tell you that it’s in restore mode. You should also hear a third sound from your computer during this time.

Step 6: Click on your iPhone in iTunes. It should say it's in recovery mode and need to be restored. Step 7: Click OK and restore it.

Now you will need to re-jailbreak it, and restore your backup, and also put your music back in.

Good Luck!
