I've juste installed IOS11 on my iphone 5s.   After reboot, it blanked my iphone.  No more picture, no more phone contacts, nothing!
So i wanted to restore a backup, but no matter which password i'm using, it keep saying that the password is incorrect.
I've tried:
  • The password to unlock the phone (the old one, with 4 digits)
  • The password to unlock the phone (the new one, with 6 digits)
  • My Apple ID password

The backup seems to done automatically Before the upgrade to IOS11, but it never asked for a password.  

Anyone can help about this?   Which password do i have to provide!?  Is there any other password than the 3 i've mentionned above?  I'm not the kind of guy who don't remember his password.

Thanks

Thanks

A number of years ago I decided I had to try an iPhone at least once. So, I purchased a 5S. I'm an avid cyclist and carry my phone with me during rides. It fits neatly in the middle jersey pocket, where it stays unless I need it.

During a recent ride my phone rang, so I pulled over to the side of the road to answer it. I didn't reach the phone in time, so I had to use the callback button. At the end of the call I tried hanging up, but was reminded that, more often than not, I'm unable to do so. What usually happens is that, at the end of a call, the screen starts flashing – which prevents me from accessing the hang-up button. Well, that's exactly what happened this time. I placed the phone back in my jersey pocket and continued my ride without giving it another thought.

A couple of hours later I heard talking coming from my iPhone. As I listened, I realized it was dictating instructions on what to do in the event I wanted to leave a message. I surmised that somehow a call had been initiated to a number which had redirected me to voicemail. Keep in mind that I had not touched the phone! I chose to ignore the phone and continue my ride.

When I finished the ride I got back in my car, where I expected the phone to automatically connect via Bluetooth. It wasn't until I tried to initiate a call that I discovered the phone had not connected. I assumed that the battery was depleted. Once I got home, my suspicion was confirmed.

I still have "landline" service from AT&T. …

I am curious if there may be a better phone system backup strategy other than what I am currently doing. My current backup involves  rerouting the main number to a series of cell phones that are configured in a chain (no answer/busy forwarding enabled on each)

I have noticed there are some online phone system backup solutions. In the event that our onsite phone system goes offline for whatever reason, I need a solution that is cloud based, and does not require any local hardware other than a computer with internet access. It would need to be able to accept at a minimum two telephone numbers that would be forwarded. Does anyone know of any service that could handle this?

Thanks in advance!

This phone will be exclusively used in Vietnam, 5% Cambodia, 5% Thailand.

Desired specs:
2G or more likely 3G, dual slot, camera, internet capable, touch screen.
Apple and Samsung won't work as they are too expensive.

As far as data for internet I do not know how many GB they would desire (or really need) and I can not pry to much as far as what they would want. The gift is to be a phone far better than the one they have (previous question on Nokia 150).
-------------------------
CDMA is not used outside of North America, so you will not get any coverage at all. Your CDMA phone will useless in Vietnam or prettywell anywhere outside of the USA and Canada (and even there CDMA is a dying standard). You will need a GSM phone and one that operates on non-North American frequencies; i.e. a quad-band phone.

Just recently my apps are using full screen.  I read the articles on how to enable or disable full screen per app, but some of my apps are "optimized for full screen"

I have no idea why this started happening all of a sudden.

My goal is not not use Full Screen at all.

Last year I bought a Taka phone and took it with me to Asia. I never got it working due to lack of information on sim cards, data cost, etc.

So, technically I am not sure it would work over there.

Now, I desire to buy a phone for a friend in Asia.

What in the item description lets me know it will work over there.

My own flip phone and other phone won't work over there because as far as I know my phones do not use sim cards.

i have the above phone and the carrier is Ultra mobile which is a subset of MetroPCS.  Recently I had used up all my data, and I received a data locked error.  On calling support they said that i had to get more data, and I did exactly and said that they needed about 15 minutes to configure it.  But I now can see an incoming sms message, but when I tap on it, it disappears and does not appear at all.  Support says that the problem is my  phone.  Can the experts suggest how to fix this problem.  Thank u and regards.

I need to extract text messages from a year-old BlackBerry Z30 .bbb backup file.  I've tried various tools such as BlackBerry-Extractor, but they don't seem to work.  The one that comes closest is a tool called WonderShare MobileTrans.  It immediately asked me for the password to the blackberry file/account, so that seemed like a good sign.  After churning away for half an hour, it gave me stats on what it found (this is just the demo version).  Under Text Messages, it said "0".

Are text messages not saved in a normal BlackBerry backup created via BlackBerry Link?  Does anyone know about SMS retrieval from a .bbb file?  I'm surprised the program said there were none there.

Thanks.

One of our company iPhone users (User 1) has a problem where he cannot call or text some other iPhone users (User 2) in our company.  When he calls User 2, it goes right to their voice mail and never rings on the User 2's phone.  When he texts User 2, it show that it is delivered on User 1's phone, but User 2 never receives the text.

There have been times when User 1 sends User 2 a text, he receives it and he replies, but User 2 never receives his reply.  The text conversation is recorded on User 1's phone, but User 2 never gets his replies.

Neither user is on a block list.  What could be disrupting both text and calls between these users?

There are certain people who I don't need to email any longer whose email addresses appear when I am typing email addresses within the To: filed within the mail app on my Samsung Galaxy S8.

What is the process to remove these email address auto complete entries for the people who I no longer need to email?

Also is there any way of doing this while my Samsung Galaxy S8 is connected to my Windows or Mac computer? It is a lot easier to do it that way than doing this manually on my Samsung Galaxy S8 cell phone.
