My iPhone 4 has just shut down. Rang the phone then vibrated for 2 minutes bank screen, will not turn on, also tried charging and will not charge I did download a ringtone app and went on to iTunes to sync!.
iPhone 3g running 3.1 and latest version iTunes. Not jailbroken.Phone somehow shut down and would not wake up. Got it turned on by pushing and holding the home and power buttons at the same time.I understand that there may be an issue with 3.1 Any ideas? A phone is not of much use if it intermittently turns itself off without warning.
I was standing in line yesterday to get food when all of the sudden my iPhone 4 just turned itself off and would not turn back on. Once I got home I plugged it into the charger which was plugged into an outlet and it turned itself back on. It didn't say my battery was low, but all seemed fine. Throughout the day my phone would turn itself off and back on at random intervals even when attached to a charger. Without the charger it would not stay powered on at all. I attempted to reset it to factory settings through iTunes and in the middle of the reset it turned itself off and wouldn't turn back on. Now i've got an empty iPhone that I can't connect to iTunes. This seems like a pretty serious problem with it and I'm afraid that I'm going to have to get a new phone.
My husband's iPhone 4 died last night. He was talking on it with about 55% battery left. It turned off and will not turn back on. Here's what we've tried:
1) Plugging it into the computer for an hour then manual reset. Didn't work.
2) Plugging it into the wall for 8 hours then manual rest. Didn't work.
3) Plugging is back into the computer, opening iTunes, then manual resest. Didn't work.
There is a small red light that you can see in the dark coming from the front of the phone. Other than that it's completely bricked. I have no idea what we can do. We're 400 miles from the nearest Apple store.
Info:iPhone 4, iOS 5.1My husband's iPhone 4 died last night.
i got an 4s for my mom on early january. the phone was ok until end of march, the phone keep auto shutting down and have to get hard reset to on (sometimes hard reset not working, and have to plug to pc sync with itunes to restore). after got this auto off problem, i called the carier company, they asked me to update ios 5.1, but problem still. i read some threads here and online, and understand that if got panic.plist have to get replacement.however, after i restore (N times), sometimes panic.plist not show up (but the phone still will auto off). just because i'm signing plan with malaysia's mobile carier, i couldn't get replacement on the spot, and some asked me to wait till they call, some even told me to leave the phone to them about month to get replacement.
my phone looks like offline all the time.its all about me to notice that its offline.then i have to push the main button and the power button together to open it.then the apple sign comes on the screen and the phone turns online.but i cannot receive the information of who called me at the time that my iphone 4s turned offline by itself.i cannot receive messages at all.what can i do now ? i sent the phone to the service and they just told me that they installed the current version.but i guess nothing happened.its doing the same thing again.i cannot use my iphone.
I left my Iphone in the car for less than 2 minutes and when I came back it was shut off. Someone told me to hold down the home button and the lock button down for 10 seconds but my lock button does not work. I didnt drop it didn't get it wet it just stopped working. It was fully charged when this happened. I don't know what to do. i plugged it in and it was still a black screen,
My iphone 3g keeps freezing and then won't shut off. I have to let the battery run down for it to shut off. After I put a charge back in it it will be fine for awhile! It 1st started when I was on Facebook and now it does it on phone calls after about 5 min. I restored it but that didn't help it!
I have an Iphone3gs that is unlocked for T-mobile and it will just shut down randomly and my battery life will be betweent 40%-80%. I have never had this problem before, I don't want to mess it up to where i can't use my phone anymore.
Just wondering if there was a way to shut off the pop up notification of SMS messages. I use statusnotifer and like the icon up in the header of the lock screen to let me know, but I don't need the message displayed...I prefer to just open it and see the red badge beside SMS displaying waiting texts
I've had this problem for about 4 months. I was working one day when out of nowhere my phone just restarted by itself. Turned phone back on and everything was ok except the screen wont turn off regardless of the time out option I have set which is at 1 minute. I tried everything from restoring and brightness control. Again my phone is unlocked at 3.0. Also when I restored my phone before I synced it to ITunes it worked fine. But after it synced with the backup it stopped working again.
On my iphone 4 after updating to 5.1 I have problems with the battery.Automatically turns off when I still have about 14% battery remaining!When I had version 5.0.1 autonomy was up 2%!I restored the 5.1 version but nothing has changed.I hope there is soon an update, version 5.0.1 was better!Clear skies!
I think I will need to bring this to an Apple store for investigations, but would anyone have any hints to what might be causing this issue? For about two days, when I shut down the phone, it immediately starts itself up. Ironically when its plugged into my MBP using the USB cable and I shut it down then, it will remain powered off. The minute I remove the USB cable phone starts up. I performed a full restore, including DFU mode and nothing. Secondly, the battery is draining at an incredible pace. i.e I charge it at night to 100%, than by morning (7 to 8 hours later), its at 70%. I have maybe 3 or 4 notifications running with Bluetooth off. I can't imagine this being a sudden issue especially where in the past the phone can be in standby for days.
To put it shortly, is it a deffective connector or battery? Either way I am in Warranty mode till Oct 2012, so hopefully can get a replacement if faulty hardware.
