  1. A friend asked me how to reset her Iphone 5, but I told her I had no idea but I knew somebody who did. So although I have no model #, I'm sure you guys/gals can help. TIA :)

    All what you need to do is hold the home button and the power button until the Apple logo appears. This is the same for all iOS devices :).

    Reset is a vague word in this context. What JC describes in the 'Restart/reboot' equivalent to an iPhone.

    If you want to 'reset' it to factory settings? Go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.

    You need itunes to back up apps and data. That's all.

    Ok, I just received said iPhone instead of the iPad I wanted :) & I need a tutorial.
    ALL it came with is the power/recharge cord. I had a friend set up the Apple ID :).

    On the back of it, it says Model A1332 EMC 380A

    I just tried logging into TechSpot & it said "Safari cannot open the page because too many redirects occured". I googled it & found this https://discussions.apple.com/message/19585215#19585215
    but still no joy.

    I am not big on Apple products. But my phone will do this when it is not getting a strong enough connection. Have you tried letting it accept cookies? If so is it working.
