my boyfriend is having the same exact problem we went to the apple store and the guy said it could be a carrier problem! (att) he restored the phone to its original settings and solved the problem!
we went home my bf sync the phone to his computer and to ios 5 again problem came back!!
we went to att today and the guy said its not a carrier problem and even gave my bf a new SIM card to reboot the "network" still he didint get my txt messages!!!
he never had this issue with ios 4!! as soon as he upgraded to ios 5 the problem came up!!!
we have an appointment tomorrow with apple AGAIN!!!
hopefully they come up with an answer as we are NOT the only ones with this problem!!!
my boyfriend restored his iphone as a brand new phone and still had this problem, he deleted all his text conversations except mine and his best friend's conversations still nothing, i told him to delete OUR conversation since its a 2 year conversation that he has NEVER deleted ..... he said YES!! we tried to delete it and the phone freezes as soon as we click on the CLEAR CONVERSATION button!!!! we tried about 5 times and this happened everytime we tried!!!! ....is like the phone doesnt wanna let go of our conversation!!! every other conversation he deleted the phone was fine except for when we try and delete ours!!
so yesterday he left his phone alone around 4 pm since we have the apple appointment today at 130pm.......around 11 pm last night his phone went NUTS receiving all the text messages i had sent and never received!!!! and now the phone works just fine!!! ...... CONFUSED?????? yeah we are too!!!
but we're still going to the apple store to see what they can tell us!!!
SOOOO!!!! since my boyfriends phone miraculously started working tuesday night , the guy from apple didnt do anything to it but told us that apple is haveing a "small" problem with IOS 5,
he said that if it happens again we should delete the conversation and then turning the phone off for at least 30 secs!!!
not the best solution APPLE!!!! why should we delete conversations that might be important to us in order to get other text messages!!!!
i hope APPLE solves this problem fast!!!
So here you go.
I tried restoring my phone again. The restore failed multiple times so i decided to re-install iTunes. After re-installing, it wouldn't open. It said the library couldn't be read because it was created by a newer version of iTunes and i had installed 10.5. So i searched for some solutions online and now my entire library is gone :@
**** you apple :@
make an appointment with apple and explain to them all the problem u have had since IOS 5.....!!!!
they might have better answers than us!
if u sign in with ur apple id to itunes the music u have purchased in the past should be there, if not try to contact apple and explain to them ur situation via email..... my old laptop crashed about 4 yrs ago....i lost everything (obviously) so i contacted apple asking for their help to get my purchased music back! ( i mean we all have an apple id and a "history" of purchased music) within 2 days i had my music back!
