When Good iPhones Go Bad
IN THIS CHAPTER
Fixing iPhone issues
Dealing with network and calling problems
Sending your iPhone for service
iPhones are usually quite reliable; most users we’ve talked to report mostly trouble-free operation. Notice our use of the words most and mostly. That’s because every so often, even a good iPhone goes bad. It’s not a common occurrence, but it does happen. So in this chapter, we look at the types of bad things that can happen, along with suggestions for fixing them.
What kinds of bad things are we talking about? Well, it could be the phone itself, making or receiving calls, the touchscreen, wireless networks, or syncing with your Mac or PC.
After all the troubleshooting, we tell you how to get more help if nothing we suggest does the trick. Finally, if your iPhone is so badly hosed that it needs to go in for repairs, we offer ways to survive the experience with a minimum of stress or fuss.
