    Settings Badge Icon

    You don't have to jailbreak to restore back to a previous version if iOS. You'll just have to have the ipsw file for the version you want installed on your computer. Then, shift-click on the "restore" button in iTunes and it should have you locate the file you want to restore to on your computer.

    Settings Badge Icon

    There's not a way to remove the badge icon from the Settings app without updating. You could always update and then restore through iTunes back to iOS 5 if wanted, but that is more work than it's worth just to get rid of the badge icon. Plus, it would re-appear once the phone connected to the...

    That's terrible.

    Glitch - should we return this phone too?

    I would take it to Apple with the video and tell them that you've had it happen x amount of times and that you tried restoring as new but the issue persists. Let them know that the issue came back after restoring as new but it is intermittent. They shouldn't have a problem replacing it, and I...

    Volume problem?

    If you have another iPhone 5 to compare it to, do so. If the sound is anything less than what it should be, take it to Apple, or call them, to have it replaced. Since it's within warranty, it will not cost you anything. Of course, that's given that there is no physical or water damage to the...

    Glitch - should we return this phone too?

    imutter could be software related(not saying it is, but possible). Have you tried restoring the device as new and then recording the video? I know that it's tough for something like this to restore as new and see if it fixed it, since it doesn't happen all the time, but it's something that would...

    What's wrong with my home screen? ;)

    Sharunda Always read to keep up to date on what is going on in the forums, even before becoming a member. I'd keep getting replacements until you get one that you can't find an issue with(there's always something). Still got another month until I get that job though, so you're stuck with me...

    System services iPhone 5

    What's wrong with my home screen? ;)

    Sharunda I don't have any issues with my phone at all. I've gotten the lines on the keyboard like users were stating, but only like once and it didn't happen again. The video works great and the video doesn't have any sound issues during playback. Not sure what could be going on with yours.

    What's wrong with my home screen? ;)

    Sharunda thanks. Will be going back to phone's though. Where I work now I only do chats, which will be a change of pace, but a good one none-the-less. Will have to take a hiatus from here, as far as helping people goes.

    What's wrong with my home screen? ;)

    We're all just so use to seeing a "Cydia" icon that it's easy to look over, I'm sure. Ha.

    If Siri is missing from Settings > General > Siri, then you will need to restore the device as new through iTunes or via Settings > General > Reset > Reset all Content and Settings.

    iMessage dropping to text but only at home on WiFi?

    Torinate Go to Settings > Messages > Send as SMS and turn it off. Then, see if you are able to send an iMessage over your home WiFi. Keep in mind, it may take a second to send, but it won't automatically revert to SMS if it takes more than 30 seconds to send. If that doesn't work, let me know...

    October 19th Really?

    J-94 Download the MyVerizon app from the AppStore. This will allow you to check your data at any time from your phone, that's how I keep track of my 2GB(only use like .5 gb a month because of WiFi).

    Why does AT&T charge an activation fee for existing customers who upgrade?

    Pre-ordered my iPhone through Apple, activated over the phone through Verizon's customer service. The Apple website informed of a activation fee, but Verizon's customer support did not. Also, when I check my bill online, no mention of the activation fee. Guess I'll just chalk this one up as...

    October 19th Really?

    J-94 the Apple Retail Stores will have stock, but limited number. You can order between 10 pm and 4 am and make it to the Apple Store as soon as possible in the morning to make sure you get one of them.

    Thinking of getting first Otterbox

    I've had a defender for two years on my iPhone 4, before updating to the 5. I loved it. Even though it was bulkier, it protected the phone so well. However, I did have problems with dust getting trapped between the otterbox and the screen of the phone which required me to remove it and clean...
