Question about Apple iPhone 3G

2 Answers

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.

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.

Tip

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

Can't get my Altec backbeat 903 headset to sync with my itouch


Try updating your Ipod touch to the latest OS. I have read that older versions of the Operating system didnt offer bluetooth capeability, or it wasnt very stable. If you have the latest update then try this:

First, sync your iPhone or iPod touch to iTunes to backup your user information, Contacts, Calendar, and other data. Then try the following steps in order.
One On the device, tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Check to see if the device now displays the Wi-Fi address or Bluetooth address (tap Settings > General > About and scroll down to Wi-Fi Address or Bluetooth). If there is a Wi-Fi address and a Bluetooh address, then you're done with these steps and you can resync your settings and your media using iTunes.
If there's still no Wi-Fi address or Bluetooth address, then continue to step two.
Two On the device, tap Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. Check to see if the device now displays the Wi-Fi address and Bluetooth address (tap Settings > General > About and scroll down to Wi-Fi Address or Bluetooth). If there is a Wi-Fi address and Bluetooth address, then you're done with these steps and can resync your settings and your media using iTunes.
If there's still no Wi-Fi address or Bluetooth address, then continue to step three.
Three
  1. Restore the iPhone or iPod touch software (this erases all data on the device) using iTunes (see article 305744 for additional assistance).
  2. After the restore is complete, sync your previous settings (mail settings, text messages, notes, call history, contact favorites, and so on).
  3. Now see if your device shows a Wi-Fi address and Bluetooth address (tap Settings > General > About and scroll down to Wi-Fi Address or Bluetooth).
If there is a Wi-Fi address and Bluetooth address, then you're done with these steps. If there is no Wi-Fi address or Bluetooth address, then continue to step four.
Four If there is no Wi-Fi address or Bluetooth address listed after doing the above steps, then your iPhone or iPod touch may need to be repaired. See the iPhone Service FAQ or iPod Service FAQ for additional service information.
Note: If the device shows an address in the Wi-Fi Address field and you are still having issues using Wi-Fi, refer to article 305715 for additional Wi-Fi troubleshooting tips. If the device shows an address in the Bluetooth field and you are still having issues using Bluetooth, refer to articles HT1843 and HT1664 for additional Bluetooth troubleshooting tips.

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.

Bluetooth connection to desktop?


No, PC internet connection is not shared with N800.
The only way to connect to the internet without a wifi signal is to pair your N800 with your cellphone (if it's GPRS and bluetooth capable) and share the GPRS connection.
You can do it with the connection manager of your N800
