Its all in what's needed.
on 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.
