Step 5: Now see if the toggle of the headphone is on or not. If it off then turns it on and get back to the same platform where you were not able to use the headphones and check if it’s working now.
Considering that the toggle is on, we are forwarding to the next steps.
Step 6: Scroll down and find for the service platform you were having this microphone problem with. Allow it to use the headphones by sliding the toggle on the right side.
Now you can use your headphones.
Headphone Engaged On Other App
We use our devices on their maxed-out levels these days, well our laptops are designed to perform multitasking but still, the chances of facing errors and service failures are there. Here, if you are using different platforms which includes the use of headphones in them like gaming, music player, YouTube etc all at once, there are chances that the headphones output is stuck somewhere.
In such a case, the system running headphones do receive the input from the platform you are using right now but, fail to serve the output.
To end this problem, all you have to do is close all the apps and services running in the background. If still, the problem persists, then simply give your system a reboot. This will definitely end the issue and now you are good to go.
Sound Driver Got Corrupt
Looks like your headphones issue isn’t resolved yet. Sometimes these all troubleshoot methods fail as the software running the headphones service goes corrupt. In such a case, there is no option left but to reinstall the software all over again.
If you are unable to use your headphones even after applying all these methods then there are major chances that its a hardware related issue. I would recommend you to visit a tech store near you and not to start opening the gadget all by yourself without knowledge.

Imagine your daily routine without your lovely Facebook on your phone. Tough, isn’t it? Well if it’s not, let me remind you that the Instagram app you are using so proudly in every few minutes constantly is Facebook-owned. Now reconsider the said situation and say that again. Next to impossible, right?
Let’s make Facebook more important for you. The WhatsApp messenger you just checked, belongs to Facebook too. Is there anything left that Facebook doesn’t own? Tell it to Mark Zuckerberg and probably he will end up buying it too by the evening.
Facebook isn’t just left as a messenger or just people’s connecting platform anymore, it has turned into an identity of your presence on the internet and on earth for the new generation. This giant has risen above the horizon of being a mere app or social media platform. So if you are alive, you got to be on Facebook.
Facebook Not Loading In My Phone.
Being such a massive platform with the user count over 2.5 Billion worldwide and operating in more than 140 languages, attracts countless minor/major issues on a daily basis. Million GB(s) of data is uploaded daily on Facebook would definitely invite malware even after taking all precautionary measures.
Facebook has a huge separate team of engineers to resolve their ever-growing technical issues. No one can shut their eyes off from the fact that the internet has negative aspects too, continuously accepting cookies & cache is troublesome in operations on the phone.
Trouble in loading Facebook and its newsfeed is a general thing nowadays. Let your phone be android or iOS, these page suspensions does not discriminate. However, to solve this issue it’s a different approach altogether in an android phone than for iOS-powered iPhone.
Resolving The Issue.
Different measures/ways are there to resolve this “Facebook won’t load” issue both for iPhone and Android. From the solutions listed down below, at least two or more should work for your device regardless of being any model of any brand.
Remove Cache & Cookies:
Open your browser and check its settings for the “privacy” option. Inside the “privacy” bar, you will find an option that gives you access to “Delete Browsing Data”. This browsing data consists of history, cache, site data, cookies, and passwords.
Select them all and push the delete all button or you can delete them separately if you want to save some necessary site data. This method refreshes the whole browsing application and makes it work in a more lite manner.
Update The Browsing App:
This is the most common mistake we all commit at some point. Not updating browser may not affect your experience of browsing and surfing for a short period of time but as days pass, the consequences come in existence in the shape of these page loading inabilities.
Almost every browser nowadays offers to update the very moment you open it if any new add up is available. Check for them if it’s not showing in the first hand. Click on the options bar and you will find update notification. Update your browser and enjoy the page as before.
Check The Add ons & Plugins:
Sometimes the add ons and plugins we install for specific operations result in a hindrance in loading our favorite websites. There are some specific add ons that refrain the operation or delays it to a longer extent.
The best way to keep this mess away is to find the add ons options in setting and put them “off” and better delete the unknown plugins you consider untrusted.
Restarting The Device:
This may sound a little “old school” but this technique still works for our new age devices too. The reason behind this is pretty simple, a backlog of running apps behind the screen makes the device go slow. A website like Facebook takes efforts to run and requires a good amount of RAM.
Restarting the device releases the engaged RAM and refreshes the system by force shutting the background running apps.
Try turning off your Anti-virus:
Chances are pretty high that your antivirus is considering the Facebook website a threat and hence refraining it from loading. Moreover, the antivirus system may also categorize Facebook into severe threats and make you receive absolutely no notification.
To check if this is the case, try turning off your antivirus and then try to load Facebook. If Facebook starts loading then it’s time to buy a new antivirus or you can update it if that’s available.
Try a different browser:
After clearing all the possible data from your browser and still getting nothing but disappointed in the mission to load Facebook and see what’s going on in the world, it’s time to give another browser a shot.
Yes, this trick may work for you. There are some browsers claiming to be a specialist in dealing with websites like Facebook however, their credibility is generally under the suspicious eye.
Checking WiFi Credentials:
May be your internet server is already set to make the access denied for websites like Facebook and Instagram. This generally happens in colleges and institutions where they provide internet to students for studying purposes exclusively.
You must check in the setting of WiFi if the website is dropped under the denied access category and by removing it, you can load & use Facebook again.
Factory reset the device:
This is the last available option. If nothing works for you, give this option a shot. There may be some bug or virus which is not making the Facebook load on your phone, now that bug will be left with no choice but to leave the device.
Resetting the whole device will make it free from all the previous data including all cookies, cache, data and general bugs. Hence proved a strong but brittle option.
I hope I could address all your queries and now you can easily resolve the Why Facebook Won’t Upload.

You’re in a meeting or on a date with the crush you were following since ever or maybe just laying around killing time by watching your favorite web series in the corona lockdown and a naggy person started what they’re best at, irritating you!
Your phone is ringing continuously murdering all the adrenaline rush scenes with all possible twist n turn. Looks like you are ready to call the hitman and set a $5k bounty for your undesired friend’s headshot but things don’t work like this in real life, right?
It’s always an option to put the phone on silent and continue with your ongoings but hopelessly it doesn’t apply while streaming videos/games online generally. Moreover, there is always a fine chance that you may miss something important while avoiding the naggy friend, consequences may range from a simply asked question “where were you?” to “you don’t deserve it, you’re fired!” heard from your grumpy boss in an ever furious voice.
WAYS TO BLOCK A NUMBER.
In android devices, there are multiple options to block anyone from calling or spamming you and save yourself from the harassment. Blocking a number generally covers both calls & texts but some devices give you the option to choose whether to block message or not.
However, there is a never-ending range of different types of phones these days and they all run on a different version/approach from one another and sometimes even OEM apps alters a lot the system with their own set of credentials.
Below are the ways to block a number on different brands of phones & service providers.
SAMSUNG: Chuck it in a single go. Just pick the number from your “recent calls” list and you will find a block option on the extreme right down on the screen. If the number is not from your saved contacts, you will find an extra option to report that number so that you tag the person in a category of how they are spam and let others know why to block them too. In both ways, you will get rid of calls and texts from them.
STOCK ANDROID/GOOGLE PIXEL OR NOKIA : Both the Google Pixel and Nokia phones use stock android operating system for smooth functioning purposes. Stock android helps to protect your data too more securely than android one. There are two ways to block your spammer on stock android, first one is very simple. Just go to your calling app and click on the “recent calls” tab now pick n long press the number you want to block, after the long press you will find a few options consisting the desired “block contact” in it so press it and you are done. No more calls and messages from that particular number. Second method consists of opening the Phone app, tapping on the three-dot menu icon on the top-right corner, and selecting “Settings.” From the menu, just hit “Call blocking” and add the numbers you want to block.
VERIZON/T-MOBILE/AT&T/SPRINT: These popular brands undoubtedly impart you the feature to block the number all by yourself like the way you did in Samsung but what if you are into a profession (probably a sharpshooter) which makes you switch your devices every now and then? They have a solution for this too. Just call your service provider on their helpdesk and ask them to block the number for you. Now you don’t have to worry about they might call you on the new device because they simply cannot. You can visit the service provider’s official website too for the purpose.
HTC: Blocking numbers on these devices are cakewalk for anyone. Simply just open the phone app, tap n hold the number until it shows you the option of blocking it on the first hand, click OK and you are good to go.
LG: It’s almost rare to find LG phones in today’s market, isn’t it? Well, the procedure is almost the same as other devices but their different vocabulary and not to forget a few extra steps may be to justify their never heard legacy, all together made them secure a separate paragraph here, smart! Okay, folks so grip your LG phone and open “Phone App” and leave all the mess there, just tap the 3 dot option on the top right corner in the screen. Now select “call setting” and then “reject calls” now push on the “+” and start selecting the numbers you want to get rid of. End it up with OK and you can take a deep nap after this hard work.
UNBLOCK IS NECESSARY TOO.
Ever heard the phrase “Time changes everything” and so your mind is no different. The irritating person yesterday may give you reasons to like them today and now the blocked status needs to get dumped from your phone.
If any survey is conducted on how many of the phone users have at least once blocked someone from calling them, I’m sure the poll would go above 80% for YES. And I can bet on this, more than 30% of them would agree to the fact that they unblocked the person again to give them another chance.
Fun fact is that Android holds a huge stake of 74.13% in the Mobile Operating System Market Share Worldwide.
To unblock the number use the same method written above respectively for your device. If you have asked your service provider to block the number, call the service desk again and ask to unblock or you can visit the same websites for the purpose.

Have you ever gave it that thought why do we love Apple products and especially iPhones so much? I know that a million of reasons are flooded in your brain this time and you are all set to fill the comment section with the best reason you got and hence having an iPhone in hand this time.
Yes, the built quality is great, sleek and smart presence is undoubtedly a clear winner and not to forget the beast performance still unbeatable by other brands. But you know what? I have a different reason for now.
iMessage! Exactly you read it right. Apple’s homegrown message software iMessage is my reason to award the iPhones to stand out from others. Now you would be confused about BlackBerry, they had their own version of personal messaging named BBM.
BBM was once very famous between the mobile users but the complexity of using the app made it stay out of the trend quite soon. It was mandatory to put a pin to use this BBM service, and every BBM user had a unique pin hence to ping someone, you will have to ask them their unique pin.
While Apple’s i-message has always been quite simple to use. It automatically detects if the person you are texting is using an iPhone too, the operating system changes the text into an i-message. This saves a few pennies for us and also it feels good to have a separate style of the message with new emojis all together. Fun yet convenient, right?
Possible Issues With Their Solutions.
There are multiple reasons and their multiple solutions to issues like this on the iPhone. It is recommended to put try the solutions in the same pattern they are written in. However, you can change the order or may resolve your issue according to your own intellect.
Please go through the section down below and resolve your issue.
#1 Possible Reason
The first reason for not receiving texts from an android phone is, maybe the number/contact belonging to that android phone is blocked from your iPhone system end.
This happens many times, people unintentionally block their friend’s contact and later complained that they are not receiving a text message from that particular friend and point a finger towards the phone is an android operating system based device.
The rivalry is between the apple fans & android fans, not between the brands. In fact, very few people know that touch panel for each and every iPhone is manufactured by Samsung, the android giant.
To solve this issue, simply just unblock the number which was unable to send you text messages. Follow the steps.
Step 1: Open the Contacts option in Phone.
Step 2: Find and touch the number you are unable to receive texts from.
Step 3: Scroll down to the end of the window and touch on Unblock The Contact.
Step 4: Click OK and now ask your contact to resend you the text message. Now you will receive the text message without failing.
#2 Possible Reason
There may be some chances that a minor glitch has come between the exchange of text messages and the apply id encryption. As we know that the iPhones and particularly iOS are designed to perform tasks under the strict surveillance of apple id, for your own benefit of security.
Sometimes, this encryption turns into a headache not only for us but for services like i-messaging or text messaging.
To remove this unexpected glitch from your iPhone is simple, just disconnect the link between the apple id and messaging software. Yes, there is an option to do this too without affecting the performance or security of the phone. To do so, read and follow the steps written down below.
Step 1: Launch Settings from the home screen.
Step 2:Scroll down and enter into the Messages option.
Step 3: Make sure that the i-message toggle is ON. If not then turn it on.
Step 4: Scroll down and find for Send and Receive. Touch and open it.
Step 5: Select the written apple id of yours.
Step 6: Click on the Sign Out option.
(You will be getting signed out from the messaging service only and not from the phone, you can still perform your normal text message operations as usual.)
#3 Possible Reason
This is the most common reason among people who switch their phone from iPhone to an android one. They forget to switch off the i-message service before leaving their iPhone.
So, whenever they try to send a text message to someone who is having an iPhone, the sim detects it and make it fall in the category for i-message and not in the form of a text message. As the sim is registered on the apple id with enabled I-messaging feature.
To solve this issue, there are two ways. The first one should be used by those who still have an iPhone with them & similarly the second way should be taken in action by the people with no iPhone with them.
Fix 1 (with iPhone)
Step 1: Put the sim inside an iPhone and turn it on.
Step 2: Launch the Settings on the iPhone.
Step 3: Scroll down and touch on the Messages option.
Step 4: Turn off the i-message toggle by sliding it to the left.
Step 5: Get back to the home screen. Press and hold the power button and switch your sim again to your android phone. Your problem is resolved now.
Step 3: Scroll down and enter your Country & phone number in the required fields.
Step 4: Click on the Generate Code tab.
Step 5: A text message will be sent to you by apple consisting the code.
Step 6: Enter that code in the browser page and click on the Submit button.
Step 7: Now you are unregistered from the I-message services and free to send text messages successfully to whoever you want.
