  5. Issue: You have an iPhone 4S or recently upgraded the operating system on your iPhone to iOS5 and the app no longer works.

    Resolution: We have seen a few different random issues on devices running iOS5. If you experience difficulty logging in, please try the following, in the order listed below:

    a) Delete and re-enter your username and password in the app, and try logging in again. You may need to submit the login request more than once, or have to close the app and launch it again, before the login is accepted. Do NOT use the Forgot or Change Password utilities as long as your login works correctly at mysmartstart.com (mysmartstart.ca for Canadian users).

    b) If those steps fail after several attempts, delete and re-install your app and follow step (a) again.

    c) Perform a hard reset on the phone by pressing and holding down the home and sleep buttons together until the apple logo appears.
  6. Issue: Where can I find a SmartStart service coverage map?
