I wanted to record a replacement voicemail greeting so I went to Visual Voicemail, tapped greeting and then record. The button quickly hilited but nothing else happened. After several taps, I went to the home screen and then back to visual voicemail. No change. I then powered off the phone, powered it back on and… Continue reading iPhone bug: Could not record new voicemail greeting
The iPhone auto hopped to a wifi network called “wireless” that had no internet access. It must have been some goofy mall network, but we could not surf at all. It should have realized the network was bogus and switch to Edge.
When playing back a visual voicemail for the second time, dragging the time slider playhead jumped the voicemail to the proper time, but it then stuck at that time. The voicemail played properly, but the playhead no longer moved, unlike the initial playback of the voicemail. I tried a second time by going home and… Continue reading iPhone bug: Unresponsive visual Voicemail scrubber bar
If you use the drag to zoom in on text near the top of the screen, the loupe does not flip downwards, so you can’t see what you are selecting.
I had received an email from the Apple Discussions Boards that a new post was waiting for me. I tapped the url in the email (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=4827578#4827578) but I ended up on an error page at apple discussions. From what I can tell, the # in the url gets escaped to %23 (I think) so you… Continue reading iPhone bug: Web links to Apple discussion boards not handled properly
I had synced two photos from the phone to iPhoto. Then I restored the phone, which wipes the photos. Then I took two more photos. Now, when I sync, iPhoto tells me that i have downloaded the photos already, but it shows the “new” photos as blank. If I sync anyway, I get corrupted photo… Continue reading iPhone bug: Syncing photos after restore
Emails should rotate when the phone rotates
The iPhone should not enable mail accounts that were not enabled in mail.app
From Matt: 1. Insert iPhone into Dock 1. iTunes comes up 1. Click on iPhone in the list 1. Click the Info tab 1. Under Calendars… at the bottom, Change “new events created on this iPhone into the calendar:” to something other than “Home” 1. Note that the popup menu never changes from Home
I changed the contact list to short and display First Name, Last Name. The sort is totally messed up now. Under “L” I have H R (first last initials), then I L S, then D I B, I S, I S, I & O, etc. Makes no sense for being in the “L” grouping. So… Continue reading Contacts displayed in wrong letter grouping
When setting the time zone, I entered Portland and iPhone only offered Portland, USA. There is a Portland, Maine so I didn’t know which one iPhone had suggested. Accepting Portland showed it is indeed Portland, Oregon. Maine may take a quibble with this.
Update: I have tried this five times now and its worked all five times since this initial issue. I think it was happenstance and that due to a weak signal the call dropped at the same time. I now consider this a non-issue. I was on a call and realized bluetooth was off. So I… Continue reading Turning on bluetooth after a call has started can hang up the call
Twice now I have been using my Jabra JX-10 while on a call and surfing the web via WiFi on my Airport Extreme N router to watch the wifi totally drop on the iPhone, come back and have errors loading web pages. I then switched to the headphones, turned off bluetooth during the call and… Continue reading Bluetooth vs WiFi
Update: Barry points out that it seems that EDGE crashed. Thanks barry! On the way home with my third Jawbone I was stopped at a light in my neighborhood, which according to AT&T is “marginal” (Damnit). I decide to check mail and it says “Could not activate EDGE.” Well hmm. I have 5 bars. Cingular… Continue reading Dull EDGE
