Over the past several years when buying or receiving some of the newer or more advanced hardware and software, I have made it a ritual to check Amazon.com to see if there is book for "Dummies" covering the particular item. Almost without fail, from "Dragon Naturally Speaking" to the latest "Photoshop" version to the basic and then advanced Apple iPhones, "Dummies" has crashed through for me. Well done, "Dummies!"

I'd like to emphasize that these invaluable gems are not read cover-to-cover by me, but consulted to answer numerous questions that arise as I use the particular item. Yes, I know, for free yet, you can go on-line, Google it, and get enough potential answer sites to peruse for a lifetime. How to choose which one?

That's where "Dummies" fits so nicely. Well indexed, logical chapter titles, excellent layout, pictures and diagrams, not to mention good cartoons, I find "Dummies" is the fastest and best way to get that elusive bit of info -- now. This book is no exception. The iPhone 4S is an incredible piece of electronics gear, playground, GPS, info source, news dispenser, etc., etc., etc. To even begin to navigate beyond its many basic capabilities I have found "Dummies 4S" invaluable -- and I have been using an iPhone almost since its inception. In other words, "Dummies" scores again. Thanks!

Debated on whether to buy iphone or not, but have used these books in the past. Bought the phone because I knew this book would answer all my questions in a way that I would understand. Love the book and the phone.

I was truly a "dummy" wehen I got my iPhone 4S for Dummies. This book helped me through so many problems/obstacles in a clear and consice manner. Thanks to both authors for the help. Next I will need the iPad and iPhone 5 books. Will definetily look for Barbara Boyd and Joe Hutsko to help me out. Way to go guys!

6 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Steven on August 6, 2012
Format: Paperback
Lots of words and clever cartoons, but little genuinely useful information. For example, there is no warning or discussion about why and how to control data usage. As a result in its first month my iPhone 4S ran up $60 in excess data charges from (according to Verizon) "apps running in the background"-- which Verizon did not warn about in advance as a potential problem, but which is the exactly the sort of useful information that I would expect a 575-page rather expensive book to contain. The "Tip" on page 56 is way too brief; it should be changed to a clear "Warning!"

The "Dummies" books are excellent.

This one was written before IOS7, so some of the descriptions and diagrams do not coincide with the I-Phone 4S IOS7.

After hours of trying to get my I-Mac's e-mail to sync with the I-Phone, and with steam coming out of my ears, I went to the Apple Communities and found a comment from two years ago that the mail will not sync if the server is using a POP account. Which mine is (Time Warner's Roadrunner. n.b. Roadrunner will upgrade this account by the end of May 2014). Bingo.
