Default re: The iPhone Thread

Any members with iPhone and ANHC?

I've a problem (iPhone 4s, iOS 6.0.1). Yesterday, while driving back home from office, I set my home as destination and started. Google Maps lady spoke a few words and then went mute! The announcement was on car's stereo system, just as music. Switching the music system off and on does not help. I had to kill the Maps app and restart. I had faced this problem with Waze earlier. It seems to be a problem with navigation apps. Navigation apps either mute or greatly reduce the volume. If only music is played, it never faces any problem.

I had faced this problem earlier on jailbroken iPhone 4 and Sygic.

I've told Honda about this today, no response yet. The people at service centers don't even understand this problem.

Google Maps had a 3D view (or was it called something else?). If we double touched the arrow, the apps showed the road ahead, not oriented to any particular direction. The present app does not replicate this feature as neatly.

I was in the US when I upgraded my Iphone to 4s to ios 6.0.1. There was surely an issue initially with wi-fi but it vanished after I reset the phone back to factory settings. In my personal observation, I used to lose wi-fi connectivity whenever the internet connection went via a proxy.

Do you guys get good battery life with ios6? I am kind of unhappy with the battery life after the upgrade.

I still have wi-fi issues on iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPad 2, all on iOS 6.0.1.

All app downloads are extremely slow, updates take ages to download, 5-10 MB apps take 10-15 min to download. However, all other downloads (videos) are very fast and play without noticeable buffering. Another problems noticed on iPhone 4S - stored wi-fi password is lost and I'm prompted to enter it while connecting! I had not faced it on any of the versions prior to iOS 6.

Never faced the issue of losing stored wi-fi password on my iPhone 4S. Yes, I noticed wi-fi getting dropped occasionally and connection going to 3G automatically. As a workaround, when I enter home, I switch mobile data to OFF and strangely wi-fi remains active after that

Infact mine has improved a lot after upgrading to iOS 6.

Btw, Kiran, got the 4S unlocked. $6 was a steal deal. Thanks for that.

Im having problems with Wi-Fi connection. I'll try the restore you suggested.

Very odd. For me so far none of these issues have popped up.
I seamlessly waddle between the home wi fi and office wi fi and it picks up the signal as applicable.
iOS6 is also perfectly cool for me as of now...

I had got my iPhone 4 from my brother-in-law in the US, AT&T network. SW unlock was not available for the baseband on the phone, so used with Gevey SIM unlock and iOS 4. With iOS 5, Gevey was not a reliable solution and did not use it. AT&T has now unlocked the phone, no charges. I just had to restore the phone with iTunes. The tougher part is now, getting Vodafone Maharashtra circle micro SIM in Mumbai I'm planning to go to Ulhasnagar tomorrow to get it.

You can just cut your SIM without going in for a micro sim. I did that. Lots of videos on YouTube.

I could have done that. But the old SIM being over 5 years old acts cranky sometimes. Anyway, I had been to Ulhasnagar today to get the new SIM - my contempt for Vodafone has gone up a few notches after today's experience.

Same situation as yours, however got iphone 4 from craigslist in US.

How did AT&T unlock the phone now? Did you call them? In my case they have been asking the buyers name or plan or any info which I donot have.

Yes, buyer has to do it. In my case it is my brother in law. Search around Internet, there are people who will do it for as little as Rs. 150.

I'm facing the same issues with the same set of devices. Also add to app updates to that list as well. What was your fix for it?

No fixes yet :-(, have to live with it till Apple releases iOS 6.1. Imagine my frustration while downloading NFS and its updates! The app is more than 1 GB and updates are probable 100s of MB.
