Mr. BlahLaLa and I each have an iPhone 4s -- same phones we've had for years. Just in the last few days we're experiencing a weird phenomenon when both phones ring at once. [more inside]

Ok, so my entire music library just disappeared from iTunes.

I was noting to a friend the other day that iTunes sucked. Something must have heard me and decided to take revenge, because my entire music library just disappeared in a puff of smoke (not literally, but damn near). Halp! [more inside]

No! Wait! COME BACK iPhone voice memos! Come back!

I have years and years of iPhone voice memos of my kids telling stories and singing songs, since they were toddlers. Or, should I say, I had them. Somehow, when I checked today, I had THREE. THREE! Where are the rest of my voice files with my then-two-year-old telling me ghost stories? My then-six-year-old singing original compositions? These files! They are irreplaceable! They are also, in theory, religiously backed up. [more inside]

Why won't my wife's iPhone 6 ring when she gets a "hangout" voice call

Can I get landline caller ID on a cell phone?

Caller ID on landlines typically shows the name of the person or business calling. Caller ID on cell phones only shows the name if you have it in your cell phone contact list. Otherwise it just shows the number. Why the difference? [more inside]

How to email myself that I have a phone call?

I have a habit of muting my phone, dumping it into my bag, and forgetting that the phone has been silenced. I also spend a lot of time at the computer or using a tablet, so if I could just have the phone send me email, I'd know I had a call. I have an iPhone 6 with service from Verizon. [more inside]

Seeking simple album-oriented music player for my iPhone and iPad

I like to listen to albums and playlists from my music collection on my iPhone. I don't need a streaming service, or radio, or recommendations, or social networks. I just want a simple user interface that lets me pick out an album (or maybe a playlist) and listen to it. Does such a thing exist for iOS? The built-in music app has gotten way too complicated, and does not work well for me or my family. [more inside]

Headset for iPhone that doesn't make me sound like I'm in a tunnel

I just started a telecommuting job, and will be using my cell phone as my office phone. I would love to find a plug-in handset to use, since I'll be having lots of phone meetings. I've tried a couple options, but both distort the way I sound and won't do for a professional use. Has anyone found something that works? Specifics inside. [more inside]

Non-scammy ringtones for iPhone?

I'm sick of my ringtones, and would like a new one. Ideally free, but pay is OK, too. I have an iPhone, and specifically I'd like Olivia Pope's ringtone. Googling this is a big ole mess, and the App store is no better. Every webpage and app look like they are designed specifically to brick the phone. Halp.

Using a Verizon/CDMA+GSM iPhone on a US GSM network

Verizon have simplified/Europeanized their plans such that you can just buy the phone outright upfront and pay for service month-to-month (I think!). Given that, if I were to buy a new Verizon iPhone next week, I would own a GSM+CDMA phone outright and not have a long-term contract with Verizon. In the future, could I then put a US (not overseas) SIM card in that phone and have it work? Or would I still need to pay a ransom to get the phone unlocked to use it on, e.g. T-mobile or AT&T?

Grocery list apps, late 2015 edition

I need a grocery app that my husband and I can both add to/sync lists for iOS (web interface nice but not mandatory). We've been using Buy Me a Pie, but it's gotten glitchy for us and won't let me add him to lists. I've seen this post, and will check out the other recs, but it's a year old, which is forever in app development time. Possible complication: spouse beta tests new iOS versions on his phone for work reasons.

Internet access icon for iPhone

I'm looking for an iPhone app that displays whether or not an Internet connexion is on, as can be found on a PC. I use wifi at home & work and my carrier's 3G on the road but sometimes, although the phone connects to the router and the wifi signal is there, there is no internet. Short of looking at the router itself, is there any app that can give you the actual Internet access icon directly on the phone?

An app that will give me directions but route me past interesting things

Apple Maps and the Google Maps app will give me directions. Apple Maps and the Google Maps app will give me restaurant reviews. With either of these apps, is there any way to combine these functions-- as in, "Google, get me to Piccadilly Circus and tell me the highest-rated restaurant along the way?" Or "Get me to Piccadilly Circus and route me past a good French restaurant?" If not, is there any app that will do this? [more inside]

Using a China/HK iPhone 6 in US and UK/Europe?

I've been offered a spare iPhone 6 by a relative (my current US iPhone 4S on a AT&T phone is aging and not always working well) but this iPhone 6 was bought in Hong Kong and was used in China. Is it possible for me to use it on a US carrier plan without too much extra trouble/expense? What about in the UK and elsewhere in Europe ? Will I be able to transfer the iPhone 6 to my US Apple account (with all my iTunes/App Store content) OK? Thanks for your tips, MeFites!

How do I get my notes back?

So, I have a standard Notes app on my iPhone and iPad. Lots of problems lately with reading/deleting mail on both, particularly with Yahoo!, so I deleted my Yahoo! and Gmail accounts and downloaded the particular apps for each instead. Then I made a note in the Notes app and to my dismay saw that most of my notes had disappeared. I googled this and learned that the Notes app may have assigned my notes to the email accounts I deleted (why?) but searching those online email accounts has only uncovered some, not all, my missing notes. iCloud doesn't have them either. Are they gone forever, hive mind? Can you think of something I've missed?

iPhone MP3 weirdness...

I run a website that hosts almost 2,000 sermon MP3s (all content that we own or have permission to host). I have one iPhone user who says that when they listen to THIS SERMON (just the first 2.5 minutes) the audio skips and loops back to the beginning. I had 4 other iPhone users listen and cannot reproduce this issue. I have Googled until my fingers bled. Anyone know what could be causing this? It plays fine on Windows and Linux as well.
