    I have a problem with turning on my iPhone 4 with broken power button. I have done as requested by charging directly to source, the apple logo appears and it is fully charged but I cannot get to front screen where my apps are. The logo remains but won’t move on to next stages

    Also, if your music is playing, (any music from any app that plays audio) on your phone, you can switch it to silent, or turn it off of silent, then your phone will reveal the lock screen. (Cause plugging your phone into a power source can get very annoying :)

  • That’s the only thing good about shitty iPhone. If it weren’t for that I got it from my sister for free, then I would never considered it. It suck!

    – Way too much security. Ask you about it when you download a app, when you plug it in a computer. The only missing thing is that when you call someone or send them a message,
    – The auto correction suck too. Much better and easier on android. It suggest it too you, not write it for you. ^^

    There is many other things that I don’t remember now. But I would never recommend this shit. It’s not about getting use to it, because I had it for a while now and I still would choose Android phone. ^^
