Posted by rkallivoka... on
I ve had the same issue today and freaked out thinking the phone was crasing. How ever after spending 3 hours trying every thing and aking on the web.
when you double tap the screen it normaly zooms?? yes
use 3 fingure tips to do a double tap!
this will take a sort off large zoom screen lock off and bring the main screen fuctions back inline for you.
please let me know or leave a reply

My iphone screen is blank, it works but can't see anything

Hold down the home key and the power button until you see the apple (hopefully you will see the apple). If this doesn't work, I would plug into itunes and restore the phone.

my iphone screen keeps zooming in and won't correct itself to see eveything in the screen. When it on the application screen you see 4 of the applications

Go to (settings > general > Accessibility > Zoom) and click turn off zoom. Warning: getting around to just do this is a royal pain in the ***. Be patient.

I had an iPhone 3G for a year, no problems... Got the iPhone 3GS the day it came it out. One week later, I went swimming with it in my pocket. I shut it off. Disassembled it, dryed it and parked it in some rice for over 48 hours. Reassemebled it, restored it, and it worked great, EXCEPT for the power button. With the 3GS, I could turn it off by holding the Home button, and turn it on by plugging it up to charge or sync. No biggy.
I thought I just needed a new power button. Ordered the past last week. Just installed the whole ribbon cable (Power, Headphone Jack, Mute, Volume). Everything works EXCEPT the power button! I've cleaned all the connectors, checked everything I can check. Nothing seems to effect it.
My old 3G went to my wife, she dropped it in the sink for a few second, so as precaution, I took it apart, dried it and riced it. After assembly, it worked fine, until a month ago, when its power button went out. What is going on?
Could a drop somehow effect only the power button function on the main board?

I have seen this happen wit a few other Iphones and the hardware parts for the power button seem to be very fragile and easily broken.

how to reset password on iphone without itunes
Posted by willi3691 on
If what you say is iPhone backup password, just with a computer and a tool, iPhone backup password will be reset.
iTunes Password Genius can run in Windows computer. What you need to do is run it on computer, add iTunes backup into it, and set password attack type for backup password recovery. Once all of these done, click "Recover" button is enough.
But if you want to change or disable iPhone backup password, you need to connect iPhone to computer and do that in iTunes.
If the password you say is iPhone passcode, factory reset iPhone is a method. You can reset a new password for iPhone after factory reset. However, all of things on iPhone have deleted too. Now restore iPhone from iTunes backup on computer is a best way. The backup password could be recovered with iTunes Password Genius.

it does not ring, only vibrates
Posted by yehudit545 on
There's a switch on the left side at the top of the iphone that turns the ringer on and off. Make sure this is towards the front of the phone to enable the ringer

"cannot send mail - the sender address was invalid" I cannot figure out why I get this message. My email address is correct and valid. I use the aol server but have my own domain.
Posted by bill216 on
You need to set the outgoing mail server to one you can send from your iphone, ie the one your network carrier lists as you cannot send email through an AOL server unless you are using an AOL connection

I can't listen music through my bluetooth headset with my iphone 3gs. My headset is a scala rider motorcycle bluetooth adapter.

My Jabra Halo works to play iPhone's iPod music as well as phone calls. So does Jabra Arrow, I'm told. The bluetooth must have A2DP.

after changing digitizer my 3gs is not calibrated. When I want to press a number for example, it takes the one next to it.
Posted by bogos... on
the screen/digitizer you got may be for a 3G rather than 3GS compare the connector with that of your old one to see. the 3GS has a black plastic middle, the 3G one has more metal pins.

hi my Iphone 3gs won't slide to open and can't slide it to shut it off either..I can still see i'm getting twitter texts but can't slide to open and do anything with phone since last night..can you help?
Posted by okay2rw on
Press and hold Power and home button for few seconds, it will turn off the device, keep the device off for few minutes then press the power button only to make the phone on again, and it should work again properly, This may happens when you try to install apps specially themes which hangs the springboard
