iPhone 5

nless you live under a rock everyone by now whether you have an iPhone or not, I am sure you have heard about the new IOS 7 update form Apple. I blogged about it last week when it was released and so far I do like the update. But I have had a number of issues with my messaging. Of course, I didn't realize it at first because people can send me text messages but for some reason I keep having trouble sending messages out. Some people have just thought that I was too busy to respond...which is definitely not the case. If I am busy I may not respond right away but usually within a couple hours. If you haven't heard from me please give me a call until this gets fixed. Honestly I am not ignoring you. :) 

Well my husband came across an article this morning that hopefully will help. The following link explains how to temporarily fix this issue until Apple comes out with a fix for the 1st update. The other thing Rogers suggested was to do a hard pull on my iPhone by holding the home and top button at the same time until you see the Apple symbol. But I have had to do that a few times in the last week. As it was, I was having trouble this morning (unbeknownst to me, until I had people calling me worried when they hadn't heard from me...knowing that I do get back fairly quickly) Obviously the fix worked for now because my 1sxt message after doing the fix was "did you get my last message I have been trying to get a hold of you?" Needless to say I did not get the previous messages from this person. 


It might be worth doing this every couple days until there's an update to fix this issue. Especially if you count on people sending you messages and receiving messages from you.
