    I have the same problem. I first experieced this issue earlier this week, but I was able to solve it by shutting the phone down by pressing the top and bottom buttons. However, that is not working today. I have an appointment with the Apple Store today, but I wish I knew how to fix it now.

Apple id lock on iphone 4s


I assume you mean a key coded lock on the phone. If so, you're going to need to reset all the data on your phone. You're going to need a computer and a sync cable for your phone. On your computer, install iTunes, regardless of OS. Then:

1. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.
* If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the
Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.
3. While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to the device. The device should turn on. Note: If you see the battery charge warning, let the device charge for at least ten minutes to ensure that the battery has some charge, and then start with step 2 again.
4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears you can release the Home button.
5. If necessary, open iTunes. You should see the "recovery mode" alert.
6. Use iTunes to restore the device.

I have an iphone and I do not know how to turn it off to save the battery. Everysince I got a blue tooth, the phone keeps dying out in record time. How do I turn it off to save the battery?


Try holding down the sleep/wake button at the top right-hand corner of the iPhone for a few seconds.
This will bring up a screen asking you to run the slider across the screen to turn the phone off.

I forgot my passwoed for my iphone


Santinor-

This is a double solution. Maybe even a 1 and a halfer.

I have an iphone myself and am compulsive about following iphone news since I'm a huge security nerd. I lock my phone. Always. But have you seen the option to make an emergency call? That in itself is a huge security flaw, or in your case, a saving grace.

So here is the deal:
  • You can NOT bypass the security code entirely
  • you MUST reset your phone (scroll to the bottom for directions)
  • BUT you can access all your texts/phone numbers/etc, first with the exploit I am about to show you.
Here are some directions, but keep in mind, this only responds to firmware versions PRIOR TO 2.1.3 (the latest one). The original firmware that came with your phone and any downloads up until the one they released a few weeks ago still have this vulnerability.

TO GET TO YOUR CONTACTS AND TXTS:
  1. Turn off/on your iPhone and move the slider to get to the "Enter Passcode" screen
  2. Tap "Emergency Call" button on the bottom left
  3. Double-tap the home button
  4. This will pull up all contacts in your Favorite list
  5. Tap on the blue arrow next to the contact's name to full access to email, SMS, Safari, etc.
Jot down those numbers you want to save before you have to do the reset.

HOW TO RESET YOUR IPHONE:
  1. Turn off iPhone - Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your iPhone is already off.
  2. Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears. iphone-recovery-mode.jpg
  3. Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows PC. Release the button if you haven’t.
  4. Run and open iTunes if it’s not already opened yet.
  5. iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK.
  6. You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore.
  7. Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless it’s hardware related.
Hope this helps!!

How to work the iphone sleep and wake button?


Hey D, It's quite simple. Check this out: With the iphone open press the sleep button to lock your screen. From this moment on the screen will no longer be active but all other functions will continue to work- which means that you will still receive calls and can continue to listen to music. To turn the screen on just click on the sleep button once again. You?ll need to confirm the action by sliding your finger across the virtual slider on the screen. Hope this helps! Volcane
