A faulty or broken iPhone screen can be annoying and potentially causing you downtime.

So, is it worth fixing my cracked iPhone screen?

It’s true that up to a third of iPhone owners with a cracked screen will not repair it. Although your phone may still be functioning, An iPhone screen that is cracked will not stand the test of time as well as a phone with the screen intact.

Retaining the value in your iPhone is important

Firstly; if you want to trade your iPhone in and achieve its maximum value when you upgrade, it is important that you keep it in a good working order.. Companies like cashaphone.com.au is a buyback site for selling your old mobile phone and will show you how much your phone is worth. CashAphone shows the prices of a working and non-working phone. If you have a cracked iPhone screen your phone would be classed as Partly working and you would get less for it. Fixing your iPhone would mean it is classed as 100% Working and you would get the full value.

For example an iPhone 5S 100% Working is worth $270 and if the screen is broken only worth $108. If you repair the phone screen it will cost you $70-$90. This will in-turn give you an extra $92- $112 by having your phone repaired.

This demonstrates that it is worth having your broken iPhone screen repaired to ensure when you trade your phone in that you can optimise the full value of the phone.

 

Leaving your iPhone screen cracked will also lead to long term damage

 

Thirdly, if you leave the iPhone with a cracked screen for many weeks your phone is more vulnerable to further damage. A broken iPhone screen also means that your iPhone is susceptible to water damage and ingression. If water or a high volume of steam seeps into your iPhone via the crack on the screen there is the potential that the phone can short circuit and then the iPhone will not be able to be repaired.

i Caramba! New pictures showing the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 iphone coming this spring

 

We have heard plenty of reports about Apple’s 5.5-inch “phablet” iPhone 6, but most of the leaked pictures so far have claimed to show its smaller sibling, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, That’s changed with some new model photos showing both sizes of the forthcoming iPhone 6, with two new models. including both the back and front of the two next generation iPhone models, sitting side by side

 

The images back up a lot of what we already know about Apple’s next iPhone release including its rounded case edges, larger form factor, thinner bezels, and relocated power button. Apple is expected to drop the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 around September time, while the 5.5-inch version (which will likely be in shorter supply) will either launch simultaneously, or could be delayed a few months.

 

While there is no guarantee that these photos are authentic, they were posted by the well-connected Sonny Dickson — a.k.a. the infamous leaker who revealed the iPhone 5 alongside a number of other Apple products.

 

The more I hear about the iPhone 6, the more I want the 5.5” model, despite the fact that it will be more expensive. But I am sure that Cashaphoe will help me not pay full RRP, by getting cash for my old iPhone 5.

 

Which iPhone 6, if any, which model do you prefer?

Your new iPads are faster, more colorful, or have a few new features. But that doesn't mean you should banish your old iPad in the back of a drawer.

A two-year-old iPad - or any Tablet - is still a powerful device that has years of use left in it. Now's your chance to make some money, or help someone else out for your trusty old friend.

According to a recent Ask.com survey, 46% of current iPad owners will be upgrading to the new iPad mode.

If true, that's going to mean a lot of perfectly good iPads are going to get put in back drawers, and chances are it still has quite a bit of value.

Have you considered selling it? As the price for it today will be the highest you're going to get, As old Technology only get older and lower every week.

How much depends a lot on how you choose to sell it.

If you don't mind a little delayed-gratification, offerings from on-line programs might be the way to go. CashAphone has built a recycling business around buying your old phones, and Tablets, giving you money for them, and distributing your old devices to developing counties.

CashAphone will give you upto $110 for a working condition iPad 1 and $220 for an iPad 2. And the great thing is they will even buy broken iPads.

The downside with on-line services is that you need to send your phone to them. But they do offer a Free post label or satchel, and payment within 24-48hrs.

If you don't mind dealing with people, there's always Gumtree and Ebay. You're chances of getting more money are a lot better with these options, but you'll have to wade through a sea of Gumtree and Ebay flakes before you get any cold hard cash.

The website Whistle out has a great article “What you need to do before selling an iPhone or iPad”

Donate it to a Good Cause

If you really don't foresee using your old Tablet and don't have the time or inclination to sell it, at least be decent human being and donate your old iPad to a good cause. Youcan is a charity program that allows customers to donate their old phones, and tablets for fight against youth cancer. Check them out. www.youcan.org.au

Sound system

Chances are, your old iPad is still one of the best music delivery devices in your home. It connects to both your local iTunes library and to whatever streaming music service you may be part of via Wi-Fi. Either connect it in the nearest dock or connect via the headphone jack to your speakers and keep the music going. You could stick it on the wall in the kitchen and plug it into a sound dock. Then delete everything except for radio app., "TuneIn", and Podcast Player, and iTunes (which I filled with MP3s)." An old iPad is also perfect for enjoying tunes in your garage. Plus, it's a great way to quickly look up how-to videos and manuals when you're working on the car or bike without getting your new iPad all greasy.

Camera

If your old iPad has a camera, you do have at least great camera quality. Put that camera to work as a home photo booth or security camera. Apps like Pocketbooth will help you create your own in-home photo booth for parties or just for fun. If you're paranoid or just want a nice web cam of your street view, Presence can stream video over Wi-Fi or a mobile network. You can even set it up to start up when it detects motion.

Car entertainment system

Your commute to work just got a bit better. Load all your favourite music and playlists onto your old iPad and connect it to your car's dash for on-the-go entertainment. For the easy-to-implement system, grab a USB charger for your cigarette lighter and use your existing iPad cable. If your car stereo has an auxiliary audio port, grab a mini-jack audio cable for the tunes and use a phone holder to keep your phone from sliding around the interior when you take a turn.

Kids

Little kids love taking off with your gadgets. So why not donate your old iPad to a member of the family? Before handing it over, you may want to buy a tough phone case, that should keep the iPad alive at least until the end of the week.

Next, grab some fun, kid-friendly apps from the same people that taught you your ABCs. Sesame Street Fun Play is great for kids five and under. And Disney has an entire library of them to choose from.

And if your kids are creative, giving them the iPad with the built in camera, will unlock that creativity, and that's always a plus.

Facebook's app has been identified as one of the main causes of battery life problems with Apple's iPhone. Two developers working separately have identified Facebook's repeated polling of its systems for new posts and data as a principal cause of battery drain. Scott Loveless, an ex-Apple Genius bar employee says "Disable Background App Refresh for Facebook or other apps you don't absolutely need to stay up-to-date all the time,"

 

Apple’s iPhone has a relatively small battery with a capacity of 1,560 mAh, compared to other flagship smartphones like Samsung’s Galaxy, which can has a capacity of 2,600mAh. Short battery life has become a primary user complaint, for iPhone users, prompting Apple to issue advice on battery care and a plethora of articles and tips on how to extend an iPhone’s battery life.

 

Scott found that the Facebook app will if allowed constantly use Apple’s location services and background app refresh, a feature that keeps apps up to date by regularly polling the Internet for new data such as tweets or Facebook posts.

 

Digging into processes

Using Apple’s developer tools for monitoring app activity, We analysed Facebook’s iPhone app and found its behaviour that explained the diminished battery life .

 

During testing, Facebook kept jumping up on the process list even though I wasn't using it. So I tried disabling Location Services and Background App Refresh for Facebook, and you'll never guess what happened: my battery percentage increased,”

 

“It jumped from 12% to 17%. Crazy!. I've never seen that happen before on an iPhone."

 

The explanation for the apparent increase in charge, is that the load on the CPU had dropped - meaning that the battery would now last longer.

 

“I have confirmed this behaviour on multiple iPhones with the same result: percentage points actually increase after disabling these background functions of Facebook,”

 

Confirmed by other developers

Separately, Sebastian Düvel, a German iOS app developer also discovered that Facebook persistently ran in the background and drained an iPhone’s battery using the same type of developer tools.

 

He also identified background Facebook polling, especially by its Messenger function, to be a principal drain on resources. But he also noted in an update in March 2014 that turning off Background App Refresh cured the problem.

 

The cause of the battery drain is unlikely to be a bug or flaw in programming, but rather facebook’s attempts to maintain a connection to their servers. The social network introduced an instant messaging function with Facebook chat and Messenger, and later added voice calling over Wi-Fi for users, both of which need persistent or frequent connections to the internet.

 

Facebook also  bought the text message replacement app WhatsApp  in February, which similarly requires an open internet connection to have messages pushed to the smartphone.

 

For iPhone Facebook users, we suggest turning off the location services and background refresh features for the Facebook app in the iOS settings application, which should prevent it from draining the iPhone’s battery while behaving normally in general use.

 

We also suggest

 

  • leaving apps that have been used in memory rather than quitting them in the multitasking interface
  • disabling push email temporarily
  • disabling "annoying" push notifications (because they wake the screen)
  • simply ignoring the battery percentage (because checking it turns on the screen and uses power)
  • switching the phone to Airplane mode when in an area with poor phone reception

 

Facebook’s Android apps have also been frequently implicated in battery drain issues, with some going as far as suggesting that ditching the Android apps and using the mobile website is the most effective way of preventing battery issues.

There are now hundreds of thousands of apps available for your iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPod touch and iPad, and, surprisingly, many of the best are free.

 

The following list showcases our pick of the 16 best free iPhone apps, that you may have not known.

 

ABC iView

The national broadcaster's iView service has long been the gold standard for catch up television services in Australia. The ABC iView app not only offers instant and unlimited access to ABC shows on demand, it also offers live streaming of ABC News 24, the ability to stream via AirPlay and parental controls for parents.

 

 

BBC iPlayer

Watch live TV and browse featured and recent BBC shows in the BBC iPlayer app. There's a favourites section to get easier access to your top shows, and AirPlay support for firing footage at your Apple TV. (This uses the system AirPlay functionality - start playing a show, double-click the Home button, swipe right twice, then choose 'Apple TV' from the AirPlay button.)

 

 

TonePad

Virtual pianos and guitars are all very well, but purely digital musical toys are more suited to Apple handhelds. TonePad is the best of them, using a grid-based interface that enables you to turn notes on and off and compose pleasing and harmonious loops; your creations can be edited, saved and uploaded to share with other users.

 

Comics

In all honesty, Comics is a little awkward compared to using it on an iPad, but you won't find a better comics experience on an iPhone. The app is free, as are dozens of downloadable comics - and once you run out of those, many more are available to buy. Reading works on a frame-by-frame automated 'zoom' basis, and is surprisingly usable.

 

Evernote

Clients to access the popular Evernote service for storing notes and ideas online are available for so many platforms that we half expect a ZX Spectrum app to be announced tomorrow. On the iPhone, Evernote is efficient and usable, enabling you to rapidly scan your notes and also create new ones.

 

 

iHandy Level Free

One of the tools from the excellent iHandy Carpenter toolkit app, iHandy Level Free turns your iPhone into a spirit level. By default, it'll show just how wonky your device's accelerometer is, but tap the calibrate button and you get an accurate and great-looking level.

 

 

Pocket

The service formerly known as Read It Later enables you to save pages from websites, to read them later, bereft of the advertising and other junk on the original page. The service is free, as is the Pocket app, which downloads your articles, so that you can digest them without a web connection.

 

 

XE Currency

XE Currency is a fine example of an app that does what it needs to, without fuss. You configure a list of currencies, and it shows current conversion rates. Double-tap a currency to set its base rate or to define values for custom conversions.

 

TuneIn Radio

Don't bother buying a DAB radio - just install TuneIn RadioXE instead and plug your device into a set of speakers. TuneIn Radio has a great interface for accessing over 50,000 digital stations; it also has AirPlay support, and you can use it as an alarm clock.

And for $1.00 you are able to purchase this App that allows you to record for 1hr allowing you to listen to your favourite station off-line.

 

Google Translate

Assuming you're online,Google Translate is a great app for translating text between 64 different languages; handily, 17 of the most popular also enable you to speak into your device and listen to translations. It's also considerably cheaper and more portable than 63 translation staff. This is one of my favourite apps!!

 

 

TED

TED is brain food. The app provides access to talks by insanely clever people, opening your mind to new and radical ideas. You can also save your favourite talks locally, for even easier access, or ask the app to inspire you, based on your mood and available time.

 

Flipboard

It would be a hard ask to expect the Flipboard experience on the iPhone and iPod touch to match that of the iPad version, but it nonetheless has a good go, transforming your favourite feeds and news sources into a tiny, beautiful digital magazine.

 

SBS On Demand

Want to watch shows from the Special Broadcasting Service on your own terms? That's what the SBS On Demand app is for. Thousands of videos, including movies, documentaries and food shows are available, with created playlists syncing across all devices with SBS On Demand, like the PS3 and Xbox 360.

 

 

The Onion

There's often a sense with satirical news site The Onion that you can read the headlines and skip the rest, but it's a frequently funny publication that also manages to make some important points on a regular basis. The iPhone app is free and has a 'shake for news' feature for the lazy and indecisive.

 

 

Vine

Such is the nature of social networks and online media that Vine's 15 minutes might have passed by the time you read this. Still, the app is a great way to rifle through the many thousands of six-second videos people have uploaded to the service.

 

 

Calorie Counter

If you're feeling the need to cut down on your food intake, Calorie Counter's a smart download. The app is well designed and, importantly, has a massive food-item database, making it easy to input everything you eat. Web sync, optional social features, reports and goals add to the goodness.

Having children is generally considered a rewarding, enriching life choice that brings immeasurable joy. But, it’s not all precious moments and plays at the park.

 

Sometimes those kids bring very measurable and totally unnecessary expenses and stress into parents’ lives, like when those offspring decide to buy every add-on available for FarmVille because they don’t know the value of a dollar and their parents don’t know how to properly set parental controls and all of a sudden you’re looking at an iTunes bill for hundreds of dollars, cursing the biological impulse to procreate.

 

For parents whose kids rack up huge iTunes purchases, Apple is now offering refund applications. This refund process is a result of a $32 million lawsuit in the USA and it was settled with the Federal Trade Commission regarding charges incurred by children without parental consent.

 

Customers have been angry about unforseen purchases for years. One parent even faced a $3,000 bill for an initially free game last year after her 7-year-old twins went on an in-app buying spree.

 

If you think you might be eligible for a refund, here’s how to get one:

 

First, find records of your in-app purchases, either by looking through your email for iTunes receipts or by logging onto iTunes and looking at your purchase history. You can find your purchase history under the “Account” section. It might take a few moments to appear, but it shows a record of everything purchased under your name.

 

Once you have the records, go to the Apple Support page, which looks like this:

 

 

Click on “Email Apple.” It seems wrong, but do it.

 

Then fill out the Email form. You’ll have to do a new form for every purchase, which is extremely annoying. In the details section, write: “Refund for In-App Purchases made by a minor.”

 

Repeat until you list all of the child-mistake purchases.

 

Apple isn’t exactly making it easy to get a refund, since it makes you enter each purchase individually. To avoid future problems, the company set up an instructional page about how to tighten parental controls.

 

We recommend doing that to prevent the problem before it happens again.

How do I extend my battery life?

How do I extend my battery life?

iPhone Low BatteryI’m going to tell you exactly why your iPhone battery drains so quickly and exactly how to fix it. I’ll explain how you can get longer battery life out of your iPhone without sacrificing functionality! I don’t believe anyone should have to turn off every feature that makes the iPhone so enjoyable to use.

With a few savvy habits under your belt, we’re hoping to help you extend the battery life of your phone. Below are 6 tips designed to keep you swimming in power when you need it most.

 

Turn off Bluetooth & WiFi

It’s always wise to keep these options turned off when you’re not actively using them, or your smartphone will continually be searching for available devices to pair with or networks to join. Since this can drain your battery faster than you can say ‘Where’s the nearest power station?’, it’s a good idea to flick the switch on these. You’ll find the option to do so at the top of the settings menu in most Android phones.

 

Shine Bright Like a Diamond?

The default brightness for most smartphone screens is set to stun. Lower the brightness slightly on your phone and watch the battery savings roll in. We’re not saying you have to start checking your phone only in dark closet spaces, but somewhere in the middle of the brightness spectrum is more than enough to see clearly without straining your eyes. Even better, most phones now come with an automated brightness setting. Select this and your battery-saving work is done for you.

 

Talk, don’t text

Tapping out your responses at the speed of lightning in a bid to save power? Think again. Text data connections consume roughly 2-4 times the power source than voice connections. Unless you’re stuck on the phone with your overly chatty Great-Aunt Beryl, you’ll always save time and therefore battery life by making a quick call versus a few back-and-forth texts.

 

C’mon, Get Appy

Battery Doctor can give you an estimate time of usage with the current battery level you have. Moreover it will also let you know the different power usage for different activities you do on your Android device.

 

Battery Saver+ markets itself as is a simple to use Android tool to extend the battery time. It’s generating a lot of buzz in the Google Play Store and the reviews are largely positive. We haven’t tried this one personally, but it comes highly recommended by our users.

 

Focus on the task at hand

Most of us have become adept at scanning our email, texting our friend, maintaining a high score in Fruit Ninja and searching for movie tickets for tonight all at once. This is probably not so good for your attention span and it’s even worse news for your battery life. Chances are you’re only really committed to one of these tasks at any given moment anyway, so try to focus on one thing at a time and close any applications you’re not presently using to keep them from draining your battery (and your brain power).

 

Your phone needs naps, too

Treat your smartphone like the sophisticated Italian we all wish we could be, and let it take an afternoon siesta each day. It’s a quick, painless and simple way to extend your phone’s battery life, just turn it off if you know you won’t be needing it for a while – whether that’s during your lunch break, or when you know you’ll be in a meeting for a few hours. Do it when you’re out at dinner with friends for extra bonus points and probably a better social life.

iPhone Battery issues ?? Here's is the Fix

iPhone Low BatteryI’m going to tell you exactly why your iPhone battery drains so quickly and exactly how to fix it. I’ll explain how you can get longer battery life out of your iPhone without sacrificing functionality! I don’t believe anyone should have to turn off every feature that makes the iPhone so enjoyable to use.

Take my word for it:

The vast majority of iPhone battery issues are software related.

And if you don’t believe me, read on.

Apple have created a website that explains their official stance on how to “optimize” your iPhone battery. Unfortunately, their instructions are rather wordy and don’t really get to the heart of the issue. In case you’re interested in checking that out, here’s a link to the official iPhone battery page on Apple’s website.

So why does my iPhone battery die so fast?

Here are the main reasons, in no particular order:

 

 

Push Mail

When your mail is set to push, it means that every second, your iPhone is connecting to the server and asking, “Is there mail? Is there mail? Is there mail? Is there mail? etc…” This constant flow of data drains your battery very quickly, and it makes sense if you think about it. The problem seems to be compounded for those of us who have Exchange servers set up on our phones.

The fix: Go to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Fetch New Data -> and turn off Push. Scroll down to change Fetch to Every 15 Minutes and set each individual account to Fetch. The Mail app will still check for new mail every time it’s opened and send your messages right away.

If you have an Exchange server set up on your phone, get ready to jump for joy!

 

Location Services

Like I said, I’m all about using your phone. But there are a few services that you probably don’t know about that can constantly drain your battery. Go to Privacy -> Location Services -> and scroll all the way down to the last item, System Services. Tap on System Services to open that folder. Here’s what I suggest: Turn off Setting Time Zone if you don’t do a lot of travel, turn off Location-based iAds if you find Apple’s tracking your location to deliver you personalized ad content unnecessary, and turn off Diagnostics and Usage if you don’t think Apple needs to know exactly how you use your phone.

New in iOS 7 (and this is important), tap Frequent Locations at the bottom of the list. Yes, your phone has been tracking you everywhere you go. I personally don’t see a need for this feature and it uses a lot of battery because it is always tracking your whereabouts, so I’d suggest you turn it off.

After you’ve taken care of those pesky hidden services, make sure you turn on the location icon so you know when your location is being tracked. Not all apps are created equal. When an app uses location services, it drains the battery quickly, no matter how well the program was written. For example, I used to use Inrix Traffic, but stopped after I noticed it never stops using location services, even when it was in the background.

The other piece of location services that Apple has still not gotten correct is location-based reminders. The long and short of it is, don’t use them. There is no way to make your battery last a long time if you do. This is one of those features that Apple released, but I’ve never seen anyone be able to get through a whole day on battery power when they were using that feature. It’s a cool idea, but it doesn’t work if your phone is completely dead.

 

Diagnostics And Usage

Do yourself a favor and head to Settings -> General -> About -> and scroll to the bottom of the screen. Open up Diagnostics & Usage and turn off the automatic stream of data that is always sent to Apple.

 

 

Close Out Your Apps

Once every couple days, make sure you close out your apps. If you have iOS 6, double tap the home button, press and hold on any one of the apps until they all start to wiggle, and then hit the red circles to close out all of your apps. If you’ve upgraded to iOS 7, double tap the home button and swipe up on each app to flick it off the top of the screen. This doesn’t delete your apps, it just clears them from the application memory. Apple’s official line on this is that apps have 10 seconds after you close them to go into a dormant mode, where they live happily until they are retrieved. In actuality, especially since all apps are not created equal, very often a battery issue is the result of an app crashing in the background. The app should have closed, but it didn’t.

Is your phone getting hot? That’s because the CPU is running at 100% all day long. It’s not designed to do that, and it’s not a hardware problem–it’s just software glitch in out in the background. Apple doesn’t like to admit that could happen, but it always does. Need proof? Go back to Settings, General, About, Diagnostics and Usage, and take a look at all of the crashing apps on your phone. It shouldn’t be hard for you to see where the problem lies.

 

Turn Off Your Phone Once A Week (The Right Way)

Turn off your phone once a week. An iPhone is a little computer that we carry around with us everywhere we go. Just by holding the top power button for a few seconds, sliding to power off, and turning it back on, many of the processes that you don’t see running on your phone stop running and start fresh again. Apple designed the iPhone with ease of use in mind, and they would never tell you to do that, but imagine if you left your PC running for a month. It would slow down, and so does the iPhone.

Whatever you do, don’t hold down the power button on the top and the home button on the front together for several seconds to do a hard reset, if you can avoid it. That’s basically the same as unplugging your desktop computer from the wall while it’s turned on. It causes all sorts of software glitches and could be contributing to the problem. Don’t do it. But just to be clear, pressing down the power button and the home button together for just a moment takes a screen shot, and that’s absolutely OK to do!

 

Choose Which Apps Can Run In The Background

Lots of little programs are always running on your iPhone to keep things running smoothly. I like to think of them like the Oompa-Loompas in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory that did all the background work so that Willy Wonka could present a delicious product to the product. One of these iPhone Oompa-Loompas is always ready to interrupt what you’re doing if a phone call comes in. Another Oompa-Loompa keeps the music playing in the background even when you leave the Music app. The iPhone Oompa-Loompas all need to be fed, however, and they eat battery life. I admit it: There aren’t actually Oompa-Loompas that feed on battery and live inside your phone, but there are background processes, and they do much the same thing.

In addition to the little background programs that are required to make your iPhone work correctly, apps that you download from the App Store can bring their own Oompa-Loompas along that do little tasks in the background. These background programs need to be fed as well, so I’d recommend going through this list and turning off the apps that don’t need to refresh when you’re not using them. You’ll probably want to leave some of these on, but even turning off a few can some significant battery life.

 

Turn Off Auto-Brightness

Right above the earpiece of your iPhone, there’s an ambient light sensor that Apple uses to adjust the brightness of your display to the amount of light all around you. Head to Settings -> Wallpaper & Brightness and turn off Auto-Brightness. So why does turning off Auto-Brightness save battery life? Whenever you use your phone, you’ve got a little sensor asking, “How bright is it now? How bright is it now? How about now?”, etc., and not surprisingly, that drains your battery.

Turning off the Auto-Brightness feature used to be bit of a hassle until Apple released iOS 7, because you had to go back to Settings every time you wanted to adjust the brightness of your phone. Now, it’s easy. Swipe up from the bottom of your screen to reveal Command Center, and you’ll see a brightness slider right below the top row of icons – it’s the slider with the sun icons on either side. Give it a try – you might be surprised by just how bright or dark your display can actually go!

I’m going to be honest: I leave Auto-Brightness turned on on my personal iPhone. Since I’ve implemented the battery saving tips above, my battery has been just fine and I haven’t seen the need to turn Auto-Brightness off. If you’re having trouble getting a full day of battery life out of your phone, try turning it off. Some people actually like having Auto-Brightness turned off so they can adjust the brightness of their display whenever they want to just the way they like it. The ambient light sensor is good, but it’s never as good as you setting the brightness of your phone yourself.

 

Don’t Restore From An iTunes Backup – Use iCloud Instead!

So you’ve exhausted all of your options, and it’s time to restore your phone. Whatever you do, don’t restore from an iTunes backup. Very often, the same glitch that your phone is experiencing right now gets backed up to iTunes, So after you restore your phone the same problem comes back. You think you have to broken phone, but what you’ve done is simply restore the same problem you started with. How to avoid this?

Use iCloud Backup! (And Restore from iCloud Backup)

After you plug your phone into your computer to restore and it reboots, unplug it from the computer as soon as you see the welcome screen where you can choose the language. Then, use the menus on your phone to connect to Wi-Fi and restore from an iCloud backup. iCloud backup is different because it only backs up your little bits of user information and downloads all of your apps fresh from the App Store. When you use iTunes, it makes one big bundle of your phone, puts it on your computer, and then puts it all back just the way it was. It doesn’t fix anything.

If you don’t have enough space on iCloud to backup your phone, copy all your photos from your phone to your computer and delete everything in your camera roll. Alternatively, or after you’ve already done this, go into iCloud backup settings and turn off Camera Roll from your backup. The only thing that takes up space in iCloud is the camera roll – Everything else is very insignificant. Trust me, an iCloud restore is worth it.

 

Last Ditch Effort – Restore Your Phone Again And Set It Up As New

It’s okay to turn on iCloud and redownload your contacts, calendars, reminders, bookmarks, etc., but if the glitch is too deep and it’s in all the backups, sometimes you just have to start fresh. And let’s be honest here–if you’re going to go to the Apple Store to have a technician take a look at it, do all of these steps first, because if you don’t, they’ll send you home to do them anyway. Apple techs are trained to never believe a battery issue is actually a battery issue. In truth, they rarely are battery issues, but with all the issues I just talked about, it’s no wonder why customers lose faith in their phones.

I sincerely hope that this guide helps you to enjoy your iPhone more. Leave a comment if you wish and I look forward to hearing from you about your success or failures.

Activation Lock is a new feature in iOS 7 that locks your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with your Apple ID so that if your phone gets stolen, the thief has to know your login credentials to turn off Find My iPhone or erase the phone to factory state.

While this is a great feature for everyone, it can be a bit of a problem if you have Activation Lock turned on when you sell your phone, since the buyer doesn’t know your Apple ID. So here’s how you can turn of Activation Lock, courtesy of the gadget repurchase experts at CashAphone

If you have your iPhone or iPad in your hands.

  • Open the Settings app on your iPhone and go to the iCloud section
  • Scroll down until you see a Find My iPhone toggle, and turn it off.
  • When you turn it off, iOS will ask you for your iCloud password. After entering, tap “Turn Off” and you should have both Find My iPhone as well as Activation Lock turned off.

it’s also possible that you forget to turn off “Find My iPhone” before selling the device.

Here is a way to turn it off even from the iCloud web-interface. So if you’ve already sold the device, these are the steps you should follow:

  • Go to iCloud.com and sign in to your account.
  • Open “Find my iPhone”, and click on the “Devices” button to get a list of all devices tied to your Apple ID. (Note that it might take some time for iCloud to determine the location of your devices.)
  • Select the device you’ve sold, and click the cross button next to it to untie it from your Apple ID. You should now see a confirmation alert. Click “Remove” to confirm.

You can choose any of the two methods above to turn-off Activation Lock, and prepare your iPhone for resale.

Australians sure love their smartphones with doubling since 2010 to a massive 72% and putting Australia ahead of the America and England.

Telstra’s annual Smartphone Index shows Australian smartphones users have grown to nearly three times of total mobile users.

In 2010 the number of mobile users with a smartphone was just 36 per cent.

Last year that figure was 56 per cent so there has still been significant smartphone growth even in the last 12 months as well.

That makes Australia one of the highest ranked smartphone countries in the world but still behind China and South Korea yet ahead of the US and the UK.

And in terms of connected users (people who regularly connect to the internet with their devices)  that now applies to two thirds of mobile users (62 per cent).

This is yet another noticeable increase from previous years – 52 per cent (2012), 41 per cent (2011) and 32 per cent (2010).

  

And 71 per cent of these connected users access the internet daily on their device.

Telstra’s research also found that young connected users aged 16-24 will spend a combined total of 29 days on their smartphones each year.

Tablet ownership has also surged with almost half of users (49 per cent) owning a tablet as well as a smartphone which is up from 39 per cent last year.

Smartphones and Tablets cost between $500 to $900 that makes them an expensive "must have " piece of equipment.

 

Re-new and reuse is the highest form of recycling.

This is great, as long as we are prepared to dispose of our old mobiles properly. It's not good  enough just putting them in the draw, never to be used again. Mobile phones contain harmful and toxic elements, not to mention useful materials that can be recycled over and over. Mobile phone recycling makes our addiction to the newest and latest a little more acceptable. You can now update without being harmful or wasteful with the earth's resources. And all we have to do is recycle them.

The best way to bring the price down is to Trade-in your old smartphone.

Well the good news is that it couldn't be easier. And no you don't have place it on E-Bay and wait days, and only find you did not achieve the price you wanted.  Or waiting for days to get a bid. Or answering questions, you really do not know the answer to.

All you need to do is logon on to a Cash-A-phone’s website where you can get a quote to sell your mobile phone instantly. If you are happy with the price, just confirm and you are well on your way to getting cash, and all within 7-10 days. The terms and conditions, are pretty standard and simple. Cashaphone’s website will print a FreePost label or you may request a FreePost satchel to be sent to you.

it’s that simple.

 

At Cash A phone we are committed to keeping our planet safe and green, by helping to keep mobile phones out of landfills. The mobile phones you collect will be refurbished and distributed to developing counties

What to do with your old iPhone?

 

Your new iPhone is faster, more colourful, or have a few new features. But that doesn't mean you should banish your old iPhone in the back of a  drawer.

A two-year-old iPhone - or any smartphone - is still a powerful device that has years of use left in it. 

Now's your chance to make some money, or help someone else out for your trusty old friend.

iphonerecycle

 

Sell it

According to a recent Ask.com survey, 46% of current iPhone owners will be upgrading to the new iPhone 5s or 5c.

If true, that's going to mean a lot of perfectly good iPhones are going to get put in back drawers, and chances are it still has quite a bit of value. Have you considered selling it? As the price for it today are the highest you're going to get. How much depends a lot on how you choose to sell it.If you don't mind a little delayed-gratification, offerings from on-line programs might be the way to go.

CashAphone has built a business around buying your old phones, giving you money for them, and distributing your old phones to developing counties.The company will give you $260 for a working condition iPhone 4s and $130 for a broken iPhone 4s.The downside with on-line services is that you need to send your phone to them. But they do offer a Free post label or satchel, and payment within 24-48hrs.

Apple stores in Australia unfortunately still do not offer trade-ins .

 The website Whistle out has a great article What you need to do before selling an iPhone or iPad”

 If you don't mind dealing with people, there's always Gumtree and Ebay. You're chances of getting more money are a lot better with these options, but you'll have to wade through a sea of Gumtree and Ebay flakes before you get any cold hard cash. 

 

Donate it to a good cause

If you really don't foresee using your old phone and don't have the time or inclination to sell it, at least be decent human being and donate your old iPhone to a good cause. Youcan is a charity program that  allows customers to donate their old phones for fight against youth cancer. Check them out.  www.youcan.org.au 

 

 

Sound system

Chances are, your old iPhone is still one of the best music delivery devices in your home. It connects to both your local iTunes library and to whatever streaming music service you may be part of via Wi-Fi. Either connect it in the nearest dock or connect via the headphone jack to your speakers and keep the music going. You could stick it on  the wall in the kitchen and plug it into a sound dock. Then delete everything except for radio app., "TuneIn", and Podcast Player, and iTunes (which I filled with MP3s)."

An old iPhone is also perfect for enjoying tunes in your garage. Plus, it's a great way to quickly look up how-to videos and manuals when you're working on the car or bike without getting your new iPhone all greasy.

 

Camera

All generations of iPhone have at least great camera quality. Put that camera to work as a home photo booth or security camera. Apps like Pocketbooth will help you create your own in-home photo booth for parties or just for fun. If you're paranoid or just want a nice web cam of your street view, Presence can stream video over Wi-Fi or a mobile network. You can even set it up to start up when it detects motion.

 

Car entertainment system

Your commute to work just got a bit better. Load all your favourite music and playlists onto your old iPhone and connect it to your car's dash for on-the-go entertainment. For the easy-to-implement system, grab a USB charger for your cigarette lighter and use your existing iPhone cable. If your car stereo has an auxiliary audio port, grab a mini-jack audio cable for the tunes and use a phone holder to keep your phone from sliding around the interior when you take a turn.

 

Kids

Little kids love taking off with your gadgets. So why not donate your old iPhone to a member of your blood? Before handing it over, buy a  tough phone case, that should keep the iPhone alive at least until the end of the week.

Next, grab some fun, kid-friendly apps from the same people that taught you your ABCs. Sesame Street Fun Play is great for kids five and under. And Disney has an entire library of them to choose from.

And if your kids are creative, giving them the iPhone with the built in camera, will unlock that creativity, and that's always a plus.

How to prevent phone theft.

Mobile phones are our most valuable belongings (photographs, contacts, passwords…) which every man alive possesses, so we must be careful to whom we show that kind of stuff, where we leave our phones or if we lend them to someone.

Don’t expose your mobile phone when you’re surrounded by crowd. One can steal it from you with some foxy plan or it’s stolen right from your hand if you are not paying too much attention to it.

Leaving your phone in public places, even if you put it down for just a second on a table, a shelf, in a bike basket, or elsewhere, is not a good idea.

Putting down your mobile phone on a table in a café is a bad idea, too. It can happen you forget it while leaving the place or it’s gone before you even notice it.

Exposed expensive mobile devices, even if in your car can lead thieves to break in. The thief will damage your car and in the end your mobile device is gone too.

Don’t bring your mobile phones to your workouts, to the pool or other public places, where you’ll put down your things. Keep watch on your mobile phone as you do for your wallet.

 

Beware to whom you lend your mobile phone, even if he says he needs it for a phone call because he’s battery is dead, he has no money or even if he has to make an urgent call. There are many excuses and some of us believe them.

 

Recommended

Download mobile software for remote controlling to your Android, Windows or iOS. With this program you’ll be able to locate your lost/stolen phone. With sending a “silent” SMS you’ll get the location of the current user of your mobile phone or you’ll even be able to delete all of your data, block the phone or even sending a message to the current user. In some applications it’s even possible sending the data about the current location and the current number of the user.

Younger minors shouldn't possess smart phones. The theft will so be reduced and it’s possible that personal data won’t be abused – like e-mail accounts, photographs, and phone numbers.

Download only verified apps.

Lock your smart phone with a security code. You’ll remain the only one who can use it and also reduce the abuse of your SIM-card. This possibility offer older phone models too.

To increase the finding of your lost mobile phone write down the next data:

·  your phone number

·  phone type and model

·  colour and other data

·  PIN-number or safety-code

·  IMEI-number (*#06*)

Consider some more advices how to identify phones – On some phone parts, like the battery, you can write down your personal information. Sometimes it’s even good enough, if you hide a piece of paper with your info. Maybe the thief will feel guilty and he may even return it.

And if your phone really is stolen:

 

Immediately report the theft to the police and the phone operator. Reporting the theft will be used as your evidence of a missing mobile phone. That is important, if the thief abuses your phones mobile services, which would lead to shocking expenses at the end of the month. Only with evidence of a stolen phone can the operator exclude the service costs.

What to consider.

One of the most common questions I’m asked by parents is “What age should I get my kid a mobile phone?” In all honesty, I’m not the right person to provide this answer. You are. You know your child best and since there are many factors to consider when getting your child their first smartphone, it needs to be a topic that’s discussed as a family.

First ask why. My son first asked for a mobile phone when he was 5. When I asked him why?, he didn’t have a good answer. he simply shrugged his shoulders and said,  “I don’t know. You and Daddy have them. I just thought I’d ask.” It opened the door for a conversation about the purpose of mobile phones but without a compelling reason, he knew a phone would not be in his immediate future. Actually, he’s now 9 and still doesn’t have one.

But as kids get older, there becomes more of a need. Parents and kids alike site safety as a reason to have the devices and research shows kids are getting their phones at earlier ages than in previous years. In When to Buy Your Child a mobilephone, the New York Times referenced a statistic from the Pew Internet and American Life Project that stated 75 percent of 12- to 17-year-old's in the United States own a mobile phone. Only 45% in that age group owned cellphones in 2004..

If you’re thinking about getting a mobile phone as your child heads back to school, consider these four factors:

·  The age of your child

·  What activities they are involved in where they will need to contact you

·  How your child demonstrates responsibility

·  The intended use for the phone. Will they be using it as a communication tool to call or text or will they have access to data plans to allow them to access social networks on their mobile device?

Any mobile device is a privilege and with that privilege comes responsibility and the very real possibility that because accidents happen, even the most responsible and careful child is likely to damage their phone. 

 

A back to school survey from Asurion an insurance company, showed that 32% of teens damaged their phone by dropping it in the last 18 months. 38% of young adults admitted to dropping their phone at least twice a week. Ouch!!

On the parent side, Asurion found that 57% of parents reported their kids had lost or damaged a mobile phone. 51% of parents replaced at least two phones for their kids in the last 18 months. A staggering 38% of parents had to replace at least one phone for their kids in the last 18 months. Double ouch!

Since it’s not a question of if, but when your child’s phone will be damaged,

Since it’s not a question of if, but when your child’s phone will be damaged,

Here are some tips to keep mobile phones safe throughout the school year:

·  Use a good screen protector and invest in a good cover or case; it’s an easy and inexpensive way to prevent scratching, cracks and other external damage.

·  Password-protect your phone; in the event it is lost or stolen, it will be your first line of defence against identity theft.

·  Install an anti-theft application on your child’s device to locate or lock it and wipe data.

·  Back up your child’s phone regularly to recover pictures, music and contacts quickly.

 

Throughout the school year, parents and their children stay connected through their mobile phones, and as kids stay busy and active at school and during their extracurricular activities, there is an increased risk that they will lose or damage their devices.

Companies like cashAphone , mazuma, ixchange and fonebank are the top 4 recycling companies in Australia. All offering money for your old mobiles, the range of models and the condition of the phone vary from each company. and another thing you need to remember is prices change every week, based on world demand , and generally prices go down, as new models are released by the manufacturers.

So it’s a great idea to compare all four.. 

 

Just watch out for other companies lowering the grading of your product, and intern paying you less

Nokia Loses Lead in Home Market

Finland-based mobile-handset maker has fallen out of the top sales spot in its home market for the first time.

 

Nokia lost the local market-share crown to Samsung Electronics Co. during the first quarter, according to IDC. Samsung shipped 211,000 devices in the small Nordic country from January to March, compared with Nokia's sales of 196,000 devices, the research firm said.
