I want to set up an Apple 4s iPhone

I want to set up an Apple 4s iPhone
Thank you for your question, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

It will lead you through the setup when you first turn it on (if it is new).

So you turn it on, it will ask for specific information eg: An Apple ID, which you can create on the phone, and to connect to your wifi network (so it has internet).

But it is very intuitive and will lead you when first turned on.

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I have turned it does not lead me anywhere

What do you see on the screen when you turn it on?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

A sreen of apps

ok, it means the phone is still registered with the previous owner.

We will return the phone to new.

To do this, go to Settings, General, Reset, Erase all content and reset settings.

Let this complete and when it has, it is returned to new, and you are then lead on the setup process.

Let me know the results please

Thank you

Why did you just go and give the worst possible rating?

What I told you is correct, so do the right thing and just reply if you have problems carrying out the instructions.

I don't see the need to respond in such a way, when I have been courteous and responsive to you.

Its not how you work with people.

Sorry..I have been so frustrated & I did not know how to open settings. The phone is brand new....I have learned a bit more now and can now put in contacts.


I cannot get an Apple id ....It tells me that the user name must not be the same ...I have only one user name which is [email protected]


I promise to upgrade you!

ok, no problem...

Are you able to log into your Apple ID via my link below on your computer?

And as we have reset the phone, it would be appreciated if you could change your rating now. I am ok to help you with these additional questions, but I believe this is the right thing to do first please.
