iPhone 4 Time Change & Alarms!


So pleased to have just heard on BBC Watchdog that the time change / alarm problem is a generic fault on supposedly ALL iPhone 4s!!!
Apparently, last weekends (31st Oct) ‘Auto’ time change from BST to GMT hasn’t worked with Alarms! on iPhone 4s 😦 When my iPhone 4 Alarms didn’t work properly on Monday morning 1st Nov, I refreshed them ALL, still no good! 😦 I’ve since deleted all my alarm’s and re-created them but they’re still not working! Urgh!
BBC Watchdog say that Apple will release a bug fix! πŸ™‚ SOON I HOPE………..

  • Synchronisation of PDA data (Calendar, Contacts, Tasks & Notes) with PC software (E.g. Microsoft Outlook);
  • Back Up of data on to PC/Mac or memory card;
  • Configuration of email;
  • Advice on upgrade options and
  • MORE! (BUT, PLEASE NOTE – I don’t sell PDAs/Smartphones OR repair them)

Orange Voicemail Symbol! Go away…!

Since Sunday lunchtime (14th Feb) I have experienced a damn annoying problem with a visable voicemail (tape) symbol and yet when I called 123, there was no new voicemail! Aarrggghhh! What makes the matter worse is that Orange charge you to retrieve voicemail!
Ok, so a call to Orange on 150…
1. They said that they would reset my voice mailbox;
2. Then send me a text that I sould open, read & delete. Which I did.
3. Then they said: “turn off phone, take battery & SIM card out”. Which I did.
No difference!
Called Orange back, they said that I wouldn’t be charged for my numerous calls to 123, thinking I had a new voicemail when I didn’t! After their ‘techies’ played around with my voicemail settings yeah! The voicemail symbol has gone πŸ™‚
That is of course, until I truely do have a new voicemail waiting, I hope!
