I've currently got a full up slow as s**t iPhone4. On orange/EE.

I've just got an iPhone 5s (?) on orange/EE. Direct from orange so brand new in the box.

What do I do? I've got a new SIM card for the new phone but I don't want to lose my messages, pictures, etc etc from my old phone.

Can someone help me please?!

Back up old iphone to itunes.

Plug in new iphone to itunes.

Then restore from your back up.

Will be your iphone4 straight onto your iphone 5s.

It may take a while to transfer all the apps, photos etc over if you are using all of the memory.
 
You don't even need to go near iTunes.


On old phone
settings > iCloud > Storage & Back up > Back Up now

Take new phone out of box, and go through the set up process when you turn it on - as long as you put in the same apple id as the old phone when asked everything should be transferred.

Icloud only does 5gb iirc of cloud storage as standard for back up. So unsure if you could back everything up that way Daniel.
 
Should do yeah.

If not they'll still be on the old phone for you transfer across some other way.

It doesn't wipe the old phone (you can do that later) - it just copies the backup across to the new phone so it should be exactly as you had it.

Aaah, this is a good point, and one that I forgot about (I have more iCloud space).

I've just plugged it in, and started an iCloud backup. (Never done one before) and it says it will be finished in 8 hours?!

I've done it through the laptop now. Took all of 20 minutes! lol

Just updating everything else now while i'm at it and then i'll plug the new phone in.

Am I right in saying i'll have a random number whilst orange/ee change numbers over or something? The woman was proper scottish and I couldn't understand a bloody word she was saying.

In the exact same position, talked to a scottish bloke.

How long do the numbers take to swap over?

If you have't already, it's well worth making a permanent backup of these. Just in case you lose your phone or similar.

Store them on a pc and then on a standalone hard drive which you can put somewhere safe.

couldn't find a thread with a better title to suit my question without starting a new thread.

So, i updated to iOS 10 the other day and now I can turn my phone sideways and do some cool little drawings as messages. Digital touch Message?

Q: Does it cost me money to send them? (Vodafone)

If it goes to a non- iOS10 iPhone, it'll be part of any MMS allowance you may have (but likely wont)
If it goes to as iOS10 iPhone, it's an iMessage so is just part of your data.

Cheers, she got an iPhone and she updated hers this morning I think.

Awesome, I love drawing.

iPhone pictionary is the new fad for me.
A picture tells a thousand words... .especially if it's a crude, jagged line drawing.

Stick man porn is my speciality. Some times to the untrained eye it may look like beastiality.

Quick question.

Why has my touch ID stopped working and when I go into the settings the 'Add Fingerprint' is greyed out and when I try selecting the Use Touch ID for: Unlock iPhone I get "Failed: Unable to complete TouchID setup. Please go back and try again"

Has the payment card assigned to your iTunes expired?

Have you had a screen replacement at all? If so, TouchID becomes nulled. Alternatively, if the phones out of warranty, pop it open and see if the connection is loose.

Cheers guys. Nope nothing had changed. I did the power button/home button restart and it fired it back into life.

Just playing silly buggers I think.

Quick question out of curiosity, alarm never went off for work this morning or I didn't hear it.
Imagine the scenario.....
Alarm goes off
Almost instantly it gets "warning battery 20%" thingy ma thingy message.

Would this stop the alarm?

Nope. The 20% is just a 'layer' if you like. The alarm will still go on behind it.

Cheers, must of slept through it then or stopped it instead of snoozed. I knew I've been tired but never done that before.
That 'battery low' thing has woken me up a few times. I've tried to snooze my alarm which I can normally do with my eyes closed but it wouldn't turn off.. alas, that stupid pop up was stopping me do it!

I've never really understood Apple's attitude to volume. You can set your volume quite low then click on a link that takes you to YouTube for example, that then proceeds to almost blow the speaker apart.

Surely whatever you set your phone's volume to - should be the same level across every app that you open?

Whats the difference between volume and sound anyway and how do you decide which one you are adjusting?
Volume buttons on the side adjust volume of music, apps etc.
To change ringer volume go to settings > sound & haptics then change the ringer volume with the slider, this stays the same regardless of music volume (unless it's on silent ofc)

I'm sure sometimes when I do the 'volume' buttons on the side it says sound instead and doesn't seem to do f**k all to mute pornhub
