    Unlock an iPhone

    I am in the UK. The phone is paid for since I have upgraded via the same carrier to another iPhone.

    Unlock an iPhone

    No. I have no idea how to do it so that is why I was asking. The carrier has (from experience) people on their helpdesk who do not tend to be knowledgeable.

    Unlock an iPhone

    I use an iPhone 6 and am very happy with it. However my network charges me absurd charges when I am outside the UK, especially in North America. I have a SIM card for another network that has some special arrangement by which the charges abroad are very cheap. There are disadvantages as well...

    Birthdays

    It does say me in my Contacts list. I think I may have solved the problem, or at least identified it. Above was mentioned Gmail, Twitter, Facebook and Messenger. But what was not mentioned was Skype and that included all the annoying extra names. So I have deleted them all and I think (I...

    Birthdays

    Apple ID password changed recently for other reason: did not help this. My gmail account is not shown on my iPad nor synced in any way. I don't have a Twitter a/c.

    Birthdays

    Since I started this thread more have appeared. For example alissssssssssssssssssss1 has appeared in my Contacts. I have not used Messenger recently and have no-one of that name in Messenger or amongst my FB friends. I fancy the solution must lie in the "IM_SERVICE_NAME" which is also...

    True, but so what, pray?

    Birthdays

    On Messenger sync contacts was turned off. On Facebook automatically upload contacts was turned off. So a clever idea but it does not look like the solution.

    I certainly use both an FB app and a Messenger app. I shall look for a sync contacts option to turn it off if possible. Watch this space!

    Birthdays

    No and no. In fact I find that Settings > Facebook does not have the password and is asking for it.

    Birthdays

    I keep finding odd birthdays in my calendar, some of them people I know vaguely, most of them people I have never heard of. I find they have added themselves to my Contacts. In one case recently when deleted from my Contacts it kept coming back. In most (possibly all?) the contact includes an...

    No, I shall try that. Cross my fingers!

    Password for Hotmail/Outlook

    I have four email clients in mail in my iPad (and three of them in mail in my iPhone). For the last month they have started saying there is trouble with mail and requiring me to input my passwords for Hotmail and/or Outlook. On some occasions this may be three or four times a day! To make it...

    When I asked previously I got no answer at all, and thought it might be because the forums were so specific (iPhone 6, iPhone 6S and so forth) so that people were only reading their own forums: that is why I duplicated to reach more people hoping this time to get at least one reply. I shall...

    Message

    One thing I liked in one of the more recent grades is the fact that all messages I receive and send on my iPhone or iPad mini automatically copied to the other device. However since upgrading to 10.01 I have found this no longer occurs. Have they taken this facility away, or is there some sort...

    Ad blockers

    I took my iPad and iPhone to the Apple Store Genius desk because they were not downloading very well from Wifi. The Genius desk blamed the Ad Blockers and got rid of them for me - and both devices are now working better.

    AdBlock seemed very easy to use.
