With the plethora of options across every metro city, why are you focusing on one single guy's viewpoint? Go to a different outlet and just ask them to replace the battery on paid option basis (no reference to past conversations).

Even in the unlikely scenario that other Apple authorized service workshops refuse to do your work, look at stores other than those - battery replacement is the easiest of tasks and a mobile repair shops with a good array of recent positive reviews (on Apple products repair) online should be good enough to handle your need.

NEED HELP

I have 02 iPhones - a 6S and a 7. Both phones are logged in through different Apple ids. However, whenever there is a Face Time call on either of the phones, the other phone rings as well. I can answer the call on either of the phones. Why is this happening?

Have you registered both numbers in one of the accounts?

Try this.

Settings>phone>calls on other devices and turn off.

Hope it works.

The 6S was being used by my wife and has her Apple Id and my office mobile number on it. She has moved to Android

So I was directed to this during my search on Google but there is no option like this on the 7 and this option is 'Switched Off' on the 6S. It still happens for some unknown reason.

Go to Settings -> FaceTime; check what numbers/emails you have listed under "You can be reached by FaceTime at".

I feel that it's too expensive too. However during the lockdown I'd mailed another ASS and they also quoted around Rs. 6000/-. Also they need the device with them for 4-5 days.

I've been advised that local mobile repair shops are not really competent to service Apple products. Plus they are not exactly cheap and charge Rs. 2500-3000/-.

Guess I should try in another ASS or maybe in Tamil Nadu when I visit there. For now, a power bank is always with me so I manage.

Photos are stored here for typically held for 30 days. It will show on the photo thumbnail how many days are left before it is permanently deleted. Hope this helps!

Oh.. Common Guys. I need more than this.

Ok, so let me explain the situation. Went out on a photo shoot of my Gypsy. And took tons of photos. Once back home, air dropped whatever was good and deleted (Read: Cleared the memory) the rest. Now, I want a couple of photos that got deleted. Well, some details in it.

Its not there in cloud, its not there in HDD. I'm asking about any data recovery options for the iPhone.

You have two options:
a) Get Apple support to run remote test - https://getsupport.apple.com/?caller...mptom_id=23306

b) I had my iPhone7 battery changed, no questions asked, from ifixindia.in (have Indiranagar and Domlur locations). The service guy came home and did the battery change in less than 20 min and charged 2500 IIRC.

I have an iphone6 running on 12.4.8 which I'm using for my office mails. Suddenly one day in June, it stopped recognising SIM card.

The iPhone Thread-20200818_201237.jpg

Initially I restarted, nothing happened. The same SIM works well in other phones so it's not a SIM issue. When the problem occurred it was running the older version OS. even after update it's not solved. I'm currently using it on Wifi as I'll anyway be not going outside till some days. Even If I do I can work woth the hotspot of my other phone.

From the usage perspective nothing has really affected. If I can solve it myself I'd do that. If I can't I'll go to the service center. Because of the pandemic situation I've avoided going to the service station.

So trying my luck here if anyone can help.

First try to reset the network settings and see if it fixes. If not then backup phone and reset everything and setup as new and see if it works.
Also did you try someone else's SIM card preferably of different operator and see if that works?

Had not tried this. I just put the problematic SIM (Airtel) in another phone and checked. Now, took my mother's phone running a Vodafone connection and swapped the SIMs. Airtel is working on that phone and Vodafone is working on my iPhone! Then took my other phone with Airtel connection. Both worked well.
When I revert Back the issue returns back. So the phone is not recognising that one particular SIM. The same SIM works fine in other phones and this phone recognises other SIMs. All the SIMs are new 4G SIMs and were not removed and more than 2 times before today.

My wife's iphone 6s has stopped connecting to wifi after updating to 13.6.1. I get an error saying "Incorrect password". I tried connecting to my main router, the repeater, my wifi hotspot, and even created a new hotspot in another spare phone. Everything gets the same error. I tried forgetting the network, network settings reset and a general settings reset. Only full phone reset left to try.

Any ideas?
