All of my previously completed levels and scores are gone. What can be done?
Angry Birds save files can be lost if the game is removed from your device, or in some rare cases, if something has gone wrong when updating the game.

Angry Birds' sounds do not work. What can I do?
Check that your device’s sounds are on and that the game sounds have not been muted.
Also, update to the latest game version if there is an update available. If you still have this problem, restart your device and try again.
If you are using an iPad, the side switch can be set to either mute sounds or lock rotation. It is possible that the sounds are muted with the mute switch, but the button itself is set to lock rotation. To restore sounds in this case, you will have to go to
iOS settings - General
and under "Use side switch to:"
Now just mute the sounds with the side switch, launch Angry Birds and unmute sounds. Afterwards you can change the side switch back to rotation lock.
Some users have also reported that they got the sounds back by muting with the side switch, setting the game to mute, setting game sounds back on, and finally turning sounds back on with the side switch.
Another option is to mute the device sounds with the side switch, shut down the device completely, turn it back on and then unmute.

Angry Birds does not work on my Android device. What can be done?
We have found that Angry Birds does not work on some Android devices. The most probable cause for a device not being able to run our games is low memory capacity and/ or graphics processing capabilities not being high enough. Unfortunately we cannot do much to fix this issue from our end. Our games are extremely demanding for devices, the graphics are complicated, and they use a lot of the device's graphics memory.
You could try to enhance your chances of success by:
a) having as much free space on your phone's memory as possible
b) not multitasking (close all background applications when starting the game)
c) updating your OS to the latest available version
d) having a WiFi connection when updating or launching the application
e) clearing Angry Birds' cache (Settings > Applications > Manage Applications> Angry Birds Star WarsII > Clear Cache)
f) restarting the phone every now and then to release some memory

I can download the game but the installation is unsuccessful. What can be done?
Check that the SD card is not mounted via USB. If it is, the game cannot be installed on the SD card. Alternatively, try installing the game on your phone memory instead of a memory / SD card. This can be done by first unmounting or removing the SD card, then installing the game, and then remounting or inserting the card back. Clearing Google Play’s "Cache" and "Data" (Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Google Play store) has also been known to help.
If you are having the same problem when updating the game, try to find enough space to update the game on the phone memory. Additionally, make sure that you have a strong wireless connection.
