Avoid writing such a comments, jailbreaking never was about Piracy. If anyone buys a iphone which cost so much, i don't think he can't pay for a software which costs just 2.99.

Yes. You are not alone. It's common.

Almost all phones heat up while charging from say 10% etc. But if you do a top up at 80-90% mark there would be hardly any heating, same is for iPhone. This has to do with the rate of charging, at low battery levels, rate is high and once it reaches around 80% charging current is reduced to get a full charge, called as trickle charging.

Same while using resource hungry apps, more resource = more power used = heat. Almost all computing device behaves like this.

But yes do keep a look out for abnormal signs, if so shut down at the earliest. Though these devices do have an auto cut off system. Still why take a chance right?

got a problem here; need your insights.

i got a message from Citibank yesterday morning while i was commuting to work that 0.99 USD had been charged to my account. now i found this surprising because i didn't buy anything while i was driving.

when i got to office i opened iTunes and checked the account information and found no purchases made that day morning (and yes the phone was with me); the last purchase was on 14th and i had already received a confirmation on that. there was a button Report a Problem, which i clicked and nothing happened.

what to do now?

Try to get the receipt details, that would have more info. I have email trigger from iTunes which comes to my email which gives more details.

One possibility is you might have made an accidental purchase within an app?

even if that is the case, there should be some proof of that; some entry somewhere - there is none. zilch after Apr 14th.

Help me out here guys!
I got a new factory unlocked iPhone 4s from USA in January. Now the home button has started acting up. As of now it functioning but I feel it won't be long before it gives up.
I'd recently gone to the local apple authorised service in Bhubaneswar for my mb pro and I casually asked the technician if they can get my phone replaced under warranty. The guy says he can't do it coz the phone was bought in US and I'll have to send it to someone in the States to get it replaced under warranty. So that basically means its not covered under warranty here in India !
Now on a visit to Australia last month I thought I would try my luck and see if I can get a replacement. So I called up on apple helpline to get a genius appointment but unfortunately I couldn't get one that day and then I just didn't get the time. But the guy on the phone mentioned that I can get the phone replaced globally.
So I'm wondering if the apple authorised service guy in Bhubaneswar was lying?

Not applicable to India but as far as my understanding goes international support is only in few countries.

@ironH4WK: yes there would be some trace, i have noticed delays in receipts getting generated. So you might want to wait for a day or two.

Did you try recalibrating your home button? Here is how to do it in case you didnt -
Step 1: Navigate to, and launch one of the stock applications on your iPhone. If you don’t already know, the stock apps are things like weather, YouTube, stocks, settings etc (any that come as part of iOS).
Step 2: When the app is launched, press and hold the Power button located at the top of the device until the ‘Slide to power off’ appears.
Step 3: Press and hold the iPhone home button. Keep the button depressed until the Slide to power off slider disappears and the application quits back to Springboard.
Step 4: Voila! Your home button is now re-calibrated and should be more responsive for you.

Hope this works for you.

Default re: The iPhone Thread

I have been using iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S locked phones in India using Vodafone as my service provider. I am particularly facing issue with Vodafone 3G on these phones of mine. I did lot of R&D and I narrowed down the issue is with Vodafone 3G.

I believe, Vodafone uses 3G service from Airtel and every time you need to browse you need to manually select Airtel from Network list.

Irony is I did use my sim on factory unlocked iPhone 4S and I didn't notice the issue of network disconnection, which I pre-dominantly find it in my LOCKED iPhones both 4 & 4S.

I am looking for some inputs with respect to Vodafone 3G users on iPhone4 & 4S.

I was suggested to shift from Vodafone to Airtel, but need to look out for other inputs.
