iPhone technical support thread

Who has an iphone?

Can you not text message someone a pic? I used to do this all the time on my Razr...

I just checked the google, and apparently you can download something called Flutter. I still have a razr, I can't believe the iPhone doesn't have picture messaging, that's insane. My friend used the iPhone's GPS or something over the weekend when we were lost, and then it actually made me an omelet.

I saw the guy at the store use it as a level. That's an expensive level, looked super cool though!

I've received pics taken on iphones but I think they were sent through their gmail account on the phone, that does suck

I just did some research. Apparently, the iphone does not come with MMS capability which is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. The apps you can download like Flutter, have a lot of problems such as when you send a pic to someone, they have to click a link and go to a website. That's useless for someone that doesnt have internet on their phone. Plus you can only send MMS this way, not receive them. This is just crazy. A $40 phone can send a pic text but a freaking $400 iphone cannot lmao!

The other gripe I have is you cant text message with the phone sideways. The phone only turns sideways when you're on the web.


So I have a question about syncing. When I first plugged the phone in and synced I didnt realize it was syncing like ALL my contacts from outlook, all my bookmarks, like everything. I completely flipped out haha, and had to reset the phone because I ended up with like 5 million contacts on my phone and I didnt want that. Anyway, I figured out how to sync just certain things, but I noticed that like I synced some pictures from my computer, but then the next time I synced I wanted to just add another pic, and it only added that pic and somehow deleted all the other pics off my phone that I had synced earlier?? How do I avoid that? How do I just add a few ringtones or pics while still keeping the current ringtones and pics on my phone? Damn technology.

From Tips and tricks on apple.com;
"Send a photo in a message; In Photos, choose a photo, tap , then tap Email Photo.
The photo is sent using your default email account."

Well yeah, I know how to do that. But that doesnt solve the problem of sending a picture through a text message, not everyone has email capabilities on their phone. Or my other question about syncing. Where are the nerds?

Ok, I got some friends that have this phone, I'll check with them.
I'll read the question again and try to get back to you.

Sicy, how many folders are you trying to sync your pics from?
You can only use one at a time. So just make a dedicated folder.
