It's been a while since I've posted on here, but I've been having an issue that's been bothering me for the past few months.
I have an iPhone 3GS and it's getting old and showing its age-- the silent switch on the side doesn't work anymore and it decides when it wants to charge, but now I'm having a new problem, and it's unsettling for me.
For the past two or three months, when I've been on the phone and tried to put the person on speaker, mute, hold, or do anything like that, I tap on the icon, it turns blue like its going to work, then goes right back. I'm now having the same problem with texting, and when I open apps, I have to tap on the icon at least two or three times and then the app comes up like its been open the whole time. I close out my apps completely (double-tapping the home button and then closing it out) so I don't think that's the culprit of that. And more recently, most of the time when I search on google in the search bar, it randomly comes up with the screen that says something along the lines of "We cannot process your request because we believe your computer is sending automated requests." I have ordered things online and had no financial issues or anything, I just have no clue what's going on.
My best friend ever is a programmer and has made his own operating system and the list goes on and on and he loves hacking phones and stuff like that, and he thinks it's malware and wants me to flash my phone, but I don't want to turn my phone into a brick because I did something wrong. I can live without all my apps or download them again, and I already have my contacts and most of my pictures backed up.
I'm sorry if I don't quickly reply, I'm busy with my family and next week I'll be in school again.
