    Trying to help a friend Regain Control of Her iPhone... She doesn't use a Password to Access her iPhone , but things seem to be leaning that way.. Kinda like the Fat Finger Syndrome has descended upon her iPhone... Even Siri comes out garbledegoped and HiSpeed... She has tried powering down to No Avail.. Not sure if removing / reinserting the Sim Card would be advantages or possible ?? Advice & Ideas Appreciated , Cheers Thanks.

    :oops: iCloud Password ?? Unfortunately a Device with a Set of Passwords were asking for Trouble.. Honestly I believe the Fat Finger Syndrome has set in... Trying to Remember what action brought her to this point .. Apparently a Pop Up Ad of sorts appeared in Text Form and she attempted to Delete thereby causing the Disconbobilation.. :eek:

    Fat fingers doesn't make sense.
    Tell her to DFU restore it with itunes.
    If she has find my iphone turned on she will have to enter her apple ID email and password after the phone restores back to factory stock settings.

    Use Google, the length of time It takes someone to reply to your demand you could have found out the meaning! ;)

    We attempted a Reset / Reset All.. She's had the iPhone a couple years now , her Kids are trying to convince her it maybe time to Trade Up..lol.. She reacts like the iPhone is going to bite or like tapping a hot Potatoe..lol.. Right now she's having to Double Click to get the iPhone to respond .. Trying to remove the Voice Over as that appears to be the source of the problem ?? The iPhone won't let her access the Internet, it will not take the Passcode..??? :(:eek:

    Correction: Discombobulation
    I guess this post wasn’t posted on iOS as the built in dictionary is quite good at correction but maybe hats turned off on your device.

    I always find, at least for myself, using words that I don’t really know the meaning of but can mostly use in a sentence hat it works in based on learning from inference. I do appreciate the opportunity to look up this word and learn something new today. ;) the word itself sounds like it’s going through itself being that way.

    No need to be coarse - he may not even know and just DFU mode search will show quite a number of methods - some involving nail breakin links. DFU Mode does have a few ways of getting into depending on the iPhone model: iPhone 7 and X differ from the others.

    Too often today we rely on abbreviations and then get abuse to others when they don’t understand the abbreviations let alone the actual expansion intended. Be polite as not everyone is walking in your shoes.

    I am reading OPs post. Either they are writing phonetically in an accent, or they used google translate to post a request.

    Either way, a difficult read, but understood.

    You do not have to have an iCloud account or even use iTunes, to use an iPhone. You would need one to download apps though.

    Their kids may have gotten into and enabled accessibility features, but resetting the phone would have cleared this up.

    The other possibility is a final hardware failure, then using accessibility to compensate, but it's too confusing for the owner.

    I agree with the OP's last assessment. It's time to get a new phone. My both my mother and mother in law, does not know how to trouble shoot basic iOS functions. You show them where to touch to read email and browse the web, and that's about it. I created iCloud accounts, run updates and install apps for them. I am the reason they can use these devices and maintain them.

    Some people need a care giver, when it comes to technology.
