I agree with you I have had suimilar issues and am trying hard to figure it all out! I can't help on everything but i have found out that in order to use your camera from teh start screeen you double tap the home button and teh camera icon appears. Hope this helps a little bit.
maybe you could help me with the imessage i send an imessage and it goes to the email address and not the phone.
... okay and thanks to another user on here, I've managed to get everything back on my iPhone!
Now then, iMessage: Follow these steps:
Settings --- messages --- (make sure iMessage is ON) --- Receive at: (click that one) and you'll see it says a phone (with your number) and Email (with your email). Select the "phone one" okay. then Caller ID: make sure it's set to your mobile number (with international dialing code) and not the email addy.
Hope this helps - it's what I did cos I was sending to the email addresses too!
Let me know if it works
hmmm I can't seam to select my phone number its greyed out and also the remove email address is greyed out not allowing me to select either... any ideas?
Great news about everything getting back on track on your phone! UI guess users are the new apple support LOL
okay run this by me again.
So, when you send an iMessage, it goes to an email address?
Okay, in your contacts, make sure that the mobile number is the primary contact.
Try this first. Pick a contact who you know has iMessage. Delete their email address out of the contact (make a note of it, so you can put it back in after).
Then, send an iMessage, see if it goes to their number.
Let me know okay.
... okay no problems sorry I couldn't help more...
Just one last thing: you are sending to someone who actually HAS updated and does have iMessage, yeah? Becuase it will default to a standard text otherwise and maybe send to an email.
Just an afterthought.
