RE battery usage - are you playing drawsomething? or have you downloaded any new aps? I find Draw something though a great (but buggy AP especially free one) drains the battery like nothing else!

Iphone 3GS followed by 4S

Does that mean using a 3GS gets goals but a 4S reaches the sky? :)

New iPhone 4S turns up yesterday. Very nice. sort of working, but internet connection to 3g (seems to work on Orange but not T-Mobile) and can't send text messages. Went through diagnostics tests last night with the useless T-mobile 'tech' and was advised to call Apple. I call Apple at 7.50pm last night, to find out that they closed the lines at 7.45pm.

So, head to work this morning, standing at Whitechapel station looking at map to work out which is the best way to get to the new offices in Brick Lane when some utter wanker runs past me to catch a bus or train or whatever, knocks it flying out of my hand. It goes spinning through the air and lands face down. Screen smashed to buggery.

I have insurance with my bank but hadn't registered it yet as I was still unsure if I have a faulty hand-set. Don't know what to do :(

Register it with your bank now.

just read this:


For the awfully large number of people who are excusably misinformed about the defects and how to get them addressed: If this happens to your iPhone 4S, do not hesitate to take it in for repair, Apple will replace it right then and there, on the spot, if it’s within the first year.

Just registered with my bank. Insurance takes 7 days to come into effect and the excess on a 4s is 75 :(

Ricky, go see the "Genius Bar" at an Apple store. If its in its first year they should replace it free of charge, if you tell them the circumstances. They replaced my old 3GS last year FOC 1-year out of Warranty

Hi guys if anyone could help I'd appreciate it
My iPhone 4 will freeze and turn itself off many times aday
It's starting to annoy me- year and ahalf old
6 mths from free upgrade
I'm up to date with ios etc- would factory reset help?
Thnx in advance- it always restarts with apple logo pretty
Quickly but it always seems to happen at important times

MasterYoda 03-05-2012 12:37 AM

My brothers was doing that a lot. He took it into apple (out of warranty) and they suggested a few things. Full factory reset fixed it.

I was convinced it wouldn't but a month later and it's fine

disco mixx kidd 04-05-2012 02:39 PM

how do i do full factory reset?

disco mixx kidd 04-05-2012 04:51 PM

its just the restore button on itunes right? doin it now
fingers crossed.......

Finbar 04-05-2012 04:55 PM

Never knew this (nor did the wife), if you hold down the top right button and then press the menu button at the same time you take a screen shot, works on 3GS and above. Well it impressed the two of us anyway... :)

disco mixx kidd 04-05-2012 05:08 PM

Possibly, but the one when plugged into itunes is a full restore if that is what you are after.

Not sure what you are doing or trying to achieve, but have you tried a soft restore first to see if that solves your problem?

disco mixx kidd 04-05-2012 11:28 PM

Ahh so I did the full restore
It's already turned of once do
Guess it didn't work....
Any other ideas?
Phone keeps freezing-turning off
Then apple logo and turns on again
