4.0 out of 5 stars Its all in what's needed. February 8, 2008
This book is thorough, basic, elemental. Yes, there's a section about "jail breaking" you iPhone to be able use third party apps...that's what the author is about in much of his work. It would be good to have this book in hand and some of it read before one's new iPhone is broken out of the box. For example, his tips about conditioning the battery on the very first charge and after are very, very valuable. I bought the book "too late." Much of it covers material I had already come across with my phone's use. The book was more basic, for the most part, than I had hoped. Get it before you get the iPhone or shortly thereafter...that way, your needs will coincide much more closely with the author's presentation. It's a very good manual...if you need it.

90% of this book is just a retelling of Apple's own user's manual.

The section on hacking is so tacked on, that it appears after the index in the back and isn't even in the table of contents. Needless to say this book was published months after the first generation iPhone came out so the hacking material is sorely outdated and most useless as the programs it centers on (iBricker and AppTapp) have fallen out of usage in the community. The section on unlocking is also woefully outdated and not helpful at all except to point you to the iPhone Dev Team's website. If you have to buy a book about this, stick to something with a much more recent publication date, or just Google for the information.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing February 13, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this after having my iphone for only a few days. In those few days I learned 95%+ of what was in the book. The book was okay - I was just expecting to learn some amazing things and that wasn't the case. Probably an okay book for someone who has no technical expertise.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this one July 22, 2011
I was very disappointed in this manual. Many of the things I wanted to know about aren't even in the book. Voice Control is one of the best features of the iPhone and it isn't even listed in the index! There is a section about hacking your iPhone which was a waste to me. David Pogue's Missing Manual for iPhone is a much better choice.
