Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

My iPhone 3G is 1.5 years old and last night I noticed that when I plugged it in it wasn?t accepting power or syncing with iTunes. I tried several cords and a wall charger, but got nothing. The battery is dead to the point where if I hit the power button I only see the red battery and the plug cord to power indicator. If I try to hard reset it gives a flash and then powers down. The self proclaimed Geniuses only tried to sell me a new phone. I?ve used compressed air to remove any lint or particulates that may be causing the problem. I think my last resort will be a queue tip and vodka to try and remove any corrosion, but figured I?d ask first to see if someone had a better plan.

How do i download everything on my iphone 3g onto my iphone 4 by using itunes


Plug in your iPhone 3g, go into iTunes and sync it with iTunes. Then right click where it says for examples Alex's iPhone and back up your iPhone 3G. Once you're done, plug in your iPhone 4 and set it should give you a choice of either setting it up as a new phone or syncing with last back up. If that does not come up, just plug in your iPhone 4 and sync everything accordingly. Hope that helps.

I had the similar problem. Found this suggestion on the web to reset iPhone 3G to it's original settings. You may have to restore your media and data files after resetting. It's the only way out for me since I can't get beyond the "Apple Logo" thingy, and I am too lazy to bring it down to the Apple Store.

Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Thank

Good luck.

How to download music on a iphone 3g?


there are several ways you can download and put music on your iPhone 3G

1.-Purchase songs in iTunes directly on your iPhone (this will cost you money and require you to create an iTunes account,if you download apps, you already have one).

2.-Insert a CD into the computer you plug your iPhone to, open the CD with iTunes, and rip the contents of the disc into iTunes (iTunes has a tutorial for this if you need further information), sync your phone with your iTunes on the computer and the songs will be added to your song library in your phone.

3.-You can use a P2P (peer to peer) sharing program ex. Frostwire, Winamp, eMule, to download the songs onto your computer. Take note of what folder these downloaded songs are being sent to. In iTunes, select File>add folder to library, a window will open, select the file where the downloaded music is located, and iTunes will add it into the music library in iTunes. Sync your phone with iTunes and the downloaded songs will be added to the music library on your phone

I have an iphone 3G 8GB and it is only a month 1/2 old, ever since i got it it has been freezing, when i get calls it will freeze and go black so i cant hang up, then goes away a short time after pressing...


The Apple store should replace it because it is under warranty, dont worry about that. But try syncing with iTunes to backup your essential data, then check for any software upadates, and update. If this doesnt fix it, try a restore.

If none of the above sorts the problem Apple will almost certainly replace the phone as it is not fit for the purpose for which it was sold. Statutory rights also apply to mobile phones.

Hope this helps

IPhone Black Screen, and nothing


Plug the iPhone into your MacBook, make sure the mac is plugged into a power source and open iTunes, if iTunes detects the iPhone, re-sync it from last back-up ... This should make the iPhone crash, reset and be back to normal. If not, hold down the sleep and home button, keep holding it after the apple logo appears, until it shows a USB plug into iTunes sign, the plug the iPhone into the mac and it should happen as before. Good luck cheers

Cant get into itunes store


Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.

To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.
Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Apple iphone 3g


I had this happen to me recently - it happened when I used my old ipod USB lead rather than the USB lead that came with the iphone. I tried a lot of things to resolve it, but the only thing that fixed it was using the USB lead that came with the iphone(it should NOT have the squeeze clips on the sides of the phone plug) to plug it into my PC and let itunes perform its sync.

Good luck!

I just had this problem and it turned out to be... It didn't like my iPod cable. Switched to the iPhone cable and it worked.
Seems to be an iPhone 2.0 prob, or 3g prob, since I was using the iPod cable to sync my old iPhone just fine.
