Question about Apple iPhone 3G

I have twice been on line with my iPhone without any knowledge and have lost lots of money as a result. I turned off Bluetooth and WI FI and still spent 50€ over night. How can I guarantee that I am not "connecting"?

The best option would be to pay for a data plan so that you don't have to worry. An iPhone without data isn't much of an iPhone at all. Barring that though, there is no way to completely stop it from being able to connect to the internet on your end. Call your provider and ask them to block your data. This will kill your visual voicemail if you use it. And the App Store and Weather and Maps and Stocks and Mail and Safari. BTW, bluetooth has nothing to do with data, and wifi just uses your home internet connection or the internet connection of whatever room you're in, so you don't get billed for that. You are connecting via 3G (or EDGE if you turned off your 3G too). But just get a data plan. You're missing out on a lot of cool stuff.

Since the iOS 9.1 update, my iPhone 5 has lost all Bluetooth connections and I cannot make them reconnect?


  • Turn off Bluetooth and restart your iPhone or iPad.
  • Repair the Device you Connect: Go to Settings > Bluetooth > Choose the device you are having issues with > Tap on the info button next to the device > Tapon Forget This Device.
  • Reset Network Settings: Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. You need to set up your Wi-Fi connections again after doing this.
  • Try restoring your iPhone: You can restore your device from iTunes or iCloud. Bear in mind that it will erase your existed data so you'd better back up your iPhone or iPad in advance.

Tips and Hints on How to Maximise You iPhone 3GS Battery Life


1. Turn Screen Brightness down to less than a half and turn on Auto Brightness. (Settings - Brightness).

2. Turn off Location Services when you are not using a GPS dependant App. If on a long journey using the iPhone's GPS, only turn the App and the service on every so often. GPS based Apps really eat battery life up!
(Settings - General - Location Services - Off).

3. Turn off Fetch Data. With this feature enabled the iPhone will interrogate the internet or your mail account every so often to fetch data, for example, an e-mail. This drains battery life. (Settings - Mail Contacts - Calendars - Fetch New Data - Push Off).

Or if you really want to keep this feature, just follow the same protocol as above , but instead of switching "Push" off, below that, adjust Fetch Data settings, to fetch on a less regular basis ie Hourly as opposed to every 15 mins.

4. On long journeys when all you need is the iPod functionality, turn Flight Mode on.
(Settings - Airplane Mode Off).

5. Remember to run the battery completely flat every so often. I do it around once a month and then fully charge it again.

6. Turn Bluetooth off.
(Settings - General - Bluetooth Off).


7. For those of us who have an iPhone 3GS or updated software on iPhone, switch on the Battery Percentage for better battery monitoring. (Settings - General - Usage - Battery Percentage On).

8. If you are fairly desperate for battery you can turn off the 3G feature of the iPhone. 3G enables higher browsing speed and better call quality. (Settings - General - Network - Enable 3G Off).

9. Turn Wi-Fi off if not in use. The iPhone will use battery searching constantly for Wi-Fi networks. (Settings - Wi-Fi - Wi-Fi Off).

10. Remember, if you really can't manage with the battery life, you can buy iPhone cases which provide extra battery power.

Good Luck

My iphone 4's power button is broke. How do I reboot?


An easy way to reboot iPhone without power button or home button is to reset your network settings. Note that by doing this, your iPhone or iPad will forget your Wi-Fi passwords, Bluetooth preferences etc.
  1. Go to Settings app and go to "General" and then to "Reset".
  2. Locate "Reset Network Settings" and select it, enter your passcode if asked, then tap to confirm and reboot the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
iphone-4s-power-button-broke-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-5-0.jpg While this works to restart all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices when power button is broken, you will lose wireless settings, like Wi-Fi passwords, VPN details, and Bluetooth connections.Therefore be ready for that and jot down any complex logins or details beforehand.

How to activate wifi of myphone tw8?


In order to work (both when registering and dialing), your iPhone will need to make a data connection to the RingFree servers. Wi-Fi, though not always available, of course, is your best choice.
To enable Wi-Fi on your iPhone:
  1. Go to the Home screen by pressing the Home button or by unlocking your phone.
  2. Touch the settings incon
  3. Look to the right of the Wi-Fi icon. If a Wi-Fi network is listed, you're all set. Otherwise, select the Wi-Fi icon.
  4. If Wi-Fi is "OFF", touch the Wi-Fi toggle to turn on Wi-Fi.
  5. Then select a network (if one is available) from the list that appears on the iPhone.
  6. When connected via Wi-Fi, you'll see a striped upside-down triangle to the right of your service provider's name on the upper-left corner of the iPhone. If there is no network available, you'll have to use the EDGE network.
i hope it will help you for further query feel free to contact.....waiting forward for your reply.....

Where do I find the blue tooth connection?


hello there!

Like most smartphones, the iPhone has the ability to connect via Bluetooth devices. Unlike features like Wi-fi, Apple did not make activating Bluetooth obvious or quick.

Here are the steps on how to turn on and off the Bluetooth on your iPhone:

1. Select the "Settings" application from the main menu.
2. Select the "General" option in the settings application. It is usually in the second group of items.
3. Select the "Bluetooth" option. The option is located in the second group of options.
4. Select the off switch to turn on the Bluetooth. Then, Congratulations, the iPhone has now turned on its Bluetooth, follow the same steps to toggle this switch to the off position.

Hope it helps.

IPhone 3G keeps saying 'bluetooth unavailable' and 'No Wi-Fi'


If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond
  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

More resets:
Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen 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.
