IPhone :: Won't Turn On But Rings

My partners iPhone has just stopped working for no reason!

When you look at the phone it appears to be turned off however when I ring it it rings at my end but nothing happens at hers?

I've tried touching her display to answer the call but nothing happens? I've tried the suggested holding down the home and power keys together and still nothing?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1

Nokia :: Can You Turn Off The Voice Tags When Someone Rings You On The E71
I think the subject says it all, but here's the story - My girlfriend's sister has an E71, and a ringtone she really likes. She wants to be able to hear the ringtone without interruption when people call, but for all my poking about in the menu and settings I can't find a way to turn off the voice tag that announces the name of the person ringing. The tags are somewhat annoying anyway because they don't tend to read Irish names very well 'Grainne' being pronounced as 'grain' and such.

Can those tags be disabled? If they can, how?

Motorola Photon 4G :: Number Of Rings Before Phone Actually Rings?
Been a happy Sprint user since 2005 and have used various dumb phones and smartphones. The Photon is my 3rd Android.I have noticed that each phone , whether smartphone or not, has the same issue that has caused me to miss incoming phone calls here and there - the caller dials my number and hears several rings before my phone actually starts ringing. The phone goes to voicemail before I have the opportunity to answer the phone.The solution for my phones has always been to adjust the Slot Cycle index from the default setting of 2 to the setting of 0. This causes the phone to poll towers more frequently, thus the phone is more quickly aware of a new incoming call. The only negative implication is that the phone goes through battery a bit more quickly during the day...but it's really only a tiny difference. I've done this on my phones, on my spouse's phones, my mom's phone, etc.

Since the Photon's battery life is so much better than my prior phone (EVO 4G) I am very comfortable in adjusting the Slot Cycle index, so I obtained my MSL from Sprint and attempted the adjustment by going to the Dialer:##DATA# ->tap green Dial icon -> to the Data Settings menu...tap Advanced->From there you can see that the Slotted Index is set to 2. So I wanted to change the setting but can't get to it from Menu->Edit->enter MSL code->VerifyI called Sprint about this issue, and in the past they have helped me to change the setting. I have called more than once and have been dealing with the more advanced Tech Support team. No one at Sprint can figure out how to adjust this setting on the Photon.

IPhone :: 3GS Rings And Then Screen Goes Black.
I didn't see this posted anywhere, Are any of you having this issue? My wife and I each have 3GS's, This happens ONLY when the phone is locked and a call is received. When the call is received, the phone rings and then after about 5 seconds of ringing the screen goes black but continues to ring.. We have to press the home button to bring the screen back up, then answer the call. I have had an original 2G and 3G phone before this S and neither of them did this..

IPhone :: 3GS Rings After 5 Seconds Not Immediately
This is very weird and it happens to my iPhone 3GS and my sister's 3GS. So when someone calls the iPhone, it doesn't ring immediately. It actually takes at least 5, sometimes more seconds to ring. This is a lot of time and I miss important calls. Both phones are FACTORY unlocked and work on T-Mobile but it's the same on AT&T so it's not provider's issue since other phones don't have this problem. I saw a lot of people have had similar problem. Does any one know if I can fix this? It's definitely not a defective phone it's just the way it is with the iphone and I don't have any idea why it takes 5-10 seconds before it starts ringing

IPhone :: Goes Blank When The Phone Rings Can't Answer
Iphone goes blank when the phone rings can't answer but it keeps ringing. This problem happens every 7th or 8th call. I also have a 2nd # forwarded to the iphone and that one experiences that problem more often. I sometimes get my wallpaper but can't "slide" to answer the phone and it keeps ringing. Then it seems to go black and crash (not to the apple logo) just to sleep, then I have to call my contact back??

IPhone :: Rings I Want Small Contact Picture
Not sure how to describe this one. I've seen on the commercials that when the phone rings you get a small bar of information and the contact's picture shows up as a thumbnail, but in reality the contact's picture is a FULL screen pic.

Is there a way to change the way the iPhone displays the incoming call AND once the call is connected how it is displayed on the phone too?

IPhone :: Contact Picture Size When Rings
My wife's iPhone 3G displays a contact's picture differently than mine and we can't figure out why.

When her phone rings from a contact where a picture is stored, the Wallpaper is displayed large in the middle and the contact's name and picture is displayed small across the top.

How can we set her iPhone to display the contact picture full size?

IPhone :: How To Customize Number Of Rings Before Voicemail?
There's no setting. I'm surprised at how un-intuitive the google says it is. Best I could find is this article. Is it really as hard as it is described below? is there an easier way?
quote: Increase/Decrease Time iPhone 3G Rings Before Going to Voice Mail.Posted on Sep 04, 2008 under iPhone Tips | 3 Comments.Did you know that you can set how many seconds the iPhone 3G will ring before it goes to voice mail? Sure you could call customer service and have them do it for you. If you are the techie type though, you will want to do it yourself with these steps:

1. Call this number: *#61#

2. Write down the voice mail access number that appears on the line that says Forwards to.

3. Now call: 61+1vm access number*11*n#

Replace vm access number with your voice mail access number
Replace n with the number of seconds that should elapse before the call is sent to voice mail.
To type a plus sign, hold down 0 for two seconds.When complete, you should see the following on your iPhone:

Setting Activation Succeeded
Voice Call Forwarding
When Unanswered

You are now set and the iPhone 3G should ring only for the amount of time you specified now before jumping over the voice mail.

IPhone :: Calls Not Connecting / No Rings Sound
Calls not connecting, the phone says it dialing but never connects and there is no ring sound. This is an area where I get 5 bars and yes I do have a case and iOS 4.01.Secondly my Nike+ sensor is not recognised by the Iphone, I have tried setting up the sensor again but this still not working.

So Apple give us a free bumper to solve the signal problems, but now I can't plug it into to my BMW's iDrive with the bumper on.So now this make the Bumper useless.Not really impressed with the iPhone for how much it cost I shouldn't be getting any of these issues. It is so poor.Going to see what the local Apple store has to say.

IPhone :: Screen Only Stays Lit For 2 Rings Before Shutting Off
So my old 3G would keep the picture of my contact on the screen till the caller hung up..but on my new 3gs, even if its on silent or ringing mode,, when I call my iphone from my house phone, the screen only stays lit for 2 rings, then goes back to sleep mode. but keeps ringing, so if I don't reach the phone by the second ring, I don't know who it is, unless I press the home button, which lights up the screen so I can see the caller IDis this some battery saving feature? do all phones do this?
