Since updating… I cannot send texts or whatsapp. Also, twitter, facebook and Instagram is constantly crashing. What do I do to save my phone? Never thought I would say this but if this carries on I'm switching to Samsung

Since upgrade the ipod function doesn't work on my JBL On Time dock, it says this device is not supported. Should I buy a new dock? It's crazy


I downloaded 8.1.3 the day that it became available. I have it on my iPhone6, and my iPad Air 2. Since the download my iPhone, and my iPad both delete all of my e-mail every 24 hours. I've deleted and reinstalled my e-mail client. There has been no change. My girl friend still has 8.1.2 on her iPhone 5, and her iPad Air 2. She isn't experiencing this problem. I've checked all of my e-mail settings with hers. The settings are identical. Does anyone have any ideas?

I'm pretty freaking pissed. My iPod will NOT charge. The minute I downloaded 8.1.3, the battery drained within a couple of hours, the entire time it was plugged into my laptop, and it steadily died. I /FIGURED/ it was this stupid update, and now it will not stay charged long enough for me to remove this retarded update. Is there anything I might be able to do to make this stupid update go away?
