  1. Why isn’t anyone posting information about the problems people are having in the iPhone 4 ?
    Reception issues , yellow spots on screen , flipped volume keys , … ?!

  2. i have poor battery performance since i upgrade my 3gs to ios4. is this happening to anybody else?

    • try to hard reset (hold power and home button until iphone shuts down, keep holding until apple logo appears) 2 times in a row.

      it won’t delete anything, but backup anyway

  3. I am getting almost double the battery performance from iOS 4 on my 3GS

  4. thx khaled and eeman for the tip, i did that  and now the performance is gr8, i am really happy, thx

  5. Any idea when is iPhone 4 coming to Kingdom? There’s been so many reported problems the phone. I wonder if Apple is going to rectify all that before releasing the set in the middle East.

  6. Hi
    Does anyone know how to reject calls. when iphone is locked there is only one option “slide to answer”….the phone keeps ringing and I cannot reject the call. but when the phone is unlock….then when call comes there are two options “answer” and “decline”…why there is no decline when the phone is locked.

    appreciate quick repsonse

    • Hit Power button twice and it will be rejected. If you dont know Power button is located on the top of the phone.

      Hope it helps

  7. Hi, If I ask my relative in US to buy iphone4 for me officially unlocked and then bring to Saudi, does the Apple Saudi support it if there is any problem.
