T-Mobile iPhone Users Experiencing Major Issues

iPhone 6 Problems

It appears that if you’re an iPhone user on the T-Mobile network, you’re in for a bit of a turbulent time over the next couple days, after reports have begun to surface of some rather big issues popping up.

Varying from freezing all that way down the blue screen of death, iPhones across the T-Mobile network seem to be struggling, with no official fix being announced.

Feeling Blue…

One problem which hasn’t popped up too regularly with the iPhone of late is the blue screen of death, which often results in the phone having to restart over and over. However, this problem is beginning to result in the long hated screen reappearing.

Having a problem with the iPhone?

Currently, the only models that are being affected are the iPhone 5s, 6 and 6 Plus, all of which seem to be running iOS 8.1 or 8.3, so if you have one of these phones be aware.

T-Mobile hasn’t exactly been very helpful with the matter either, with no official statement being made by the company in reference to the issue.

Forums do suggest however, that the problem might have something to do with the way the memory works on the handset in relation to the network. Users are suggesting that performing a hard reset may solve the issue (simply hold the lock and home button down until the phone resets).

If a hard reset doesn’t solve the issue then wiping your messages and going through a factory reset seems to be the only other work around right now, although it’s not a guaranteed fix.

Just T-Mobile…

The iPhone 6 has been relatively problem-free until now...

Currently only T-Mobile based iPhones are experiencing the issues, so if you happen to be on EE, Orange, Vodafone, O2 or Three then you could have dodged a bullet. If you're currently looking to change from T-Mobile to another network, check out the best iPhone network and tariff plans currently available.

Of course, problems like this do have a habit of spreading once they’ve gained some attention, so if something does happen then you can expect it to be the same issue.

Apple is unlikely to comment unless it’s proven to be the company’s fault rather than the network’s, so don’t expect too much chatter from Cupertino about this problem.

The iPhone 6 has been relatively bug free until now, but this is still much less problematic than the likes of antenna-gate, which had many people struggling with phone calls on previous Apple products.

Of course, when an official fix is announced we’ll be sure to let you know how to sort this problem out. However, until then you’ll likely have to deal with the issues on your own.
