About the Author

Edward C. Baig writes the weekly Personal Technology column in USA TODAY and is co-host of the weekly USA TODAY’s Talking Tech podcast. He is also the author of Macs For Dummies, 9th Edition, for Wiley Publishing. Before joining USA TODAY as a columnist in 1999, Ed spent six years at Business Week, where he wrote and edited stories about consumer tech, personal finance, collectibles, and travel, among other topics. He received the Medill School of Journalism 1999 Financial Writers and Editors Award for contributions to the “Business Week Investor Guide to Online Investing.” That followed a three-year stint at U.S. News & World Report, where Ed was the lead tech writer for the News You Can Use section but also dabbled in other subjects. He recalls fondly putting together features on baseball card investing, karaoke machines, and the odd things people collect, including Pez dispensers, vintage radios, and magic memorabilia.
Ed began his journalist career at Fortune magazine, gaining the best basic training imaginable during his early years as a fact checker. Through the dozen years he worked at the magazine, Ed covered leisure-time industries, penned features on the lucrative dating market and the effect of religion on corporate managers, and also started up Fortune’s Products to Watch column.

Bob LeVitus, often referred to as “Dr. Mac,” has written or co-written 50 popular computer books, including Dr. Mac: The OS X Files and Mac OS X Leopard For Dummies for Wiley Publishing; Stupid Mac Tricks and Dr. Macintosh for Addison-Wesley; and The Little iTunes Book, 3rd Edition and The Little iDVD Book, 2nd Edition for Peachpit Press. His books have sold more than a million copies worldwide. Bob has penned the popular Dr. Mac column for the Houston Chronicle for the past ten years and has been published in dozens of computer magazines over the past fifteen years. His achievements have been documented in major media around the world. (Yes, that was Bob juggling a keyboard in USA Today a few years back!)
Bob is considered one of the world’s leading authorities on Mac OS. From 1989 to 1997, he was a contributing editor and columnist for MacUser magazine, writing the Help Folder, Beating the System, Personal Best, and Game Room columns at various times. In his copious spare time, Bob heads up a team of expert technical consultants who do nothing but provide technical help and training to Mac users via telephone, e-mail, and Internet-enabled remote control software, which allows them to see and control your Mac no matter where in the world you may be. If you’re having problems with your Mac, you ought to give them a try.

Having been in the IT field as a trainer for over 20 years, I seldom pick up a Dummies book. But after reading two other books, Kelby and Progue, and then this one, I can honestly say that this is the one to get, if you get only one iPhone book. The warnings are a unique and especially useful addition, and the photos are gorgeous.

It's amazing that the authors can know all this complex stuff and yet present it in such an easy-to-follow format.
I really didn't expect to learn anything new about my iPhone when I got the book from a friend. Wow! Was I ever wrong. Every tip works flawlessly. I would recommend this to every iPhone owner. Going even further, I think Apple and AT & T should include it with every purchase.

I got this book today and have not been able to put it down.
I thought that I knew a lot about my iPhone but this book has given me even more detail that can only enhance my already delightful experience with my iPhone. Edward anb Bob have done a top-rate job of providing easy to understand content. The illustrations are perfectly complementary to the text. Page Layouts are extemely well thought out and executed.Font selection makes this book both easy to read and a feast for the eye. Cartoons by Rich Tennant are hillarious. And now you know why I fell in love with this wonderful book. Go no further. Put it in your cart. You will not regret the decision...ever.

I originally gave this book two stars as I could not locate the link to speed up the internet. I finally managed to track it down on my home computer so, in all fairness, I could not leave the review of this book with only two stars. I still like IPhone, the Missing Guide and the Rough Guide to the IPhone better, but this book is quite adequate. I would also like to remind the authors that this book is entitled "The IPhone for Dummies," and that I am their target audience. Keep it simple and obvious.

Format: Paperback
The iPhone for Dummies is a dated book and seems to be written for iPhone with firmware 1.0. The book does not cover the January 15, 2008 update that Apple rolled out at Mac World. Apple has also rolled out a 16 G iPhone in addition to the 8 G iPhone as of February 5, 2008 which is not covered in the book.

For someone that has been using the Mac OS X and uses Apples standard application such as Address Book, iPhoto, and iTunes the iPhone is probability not a hard to use and the iPhone for Dummies probability seems like an easy read. But if you are coming from a Microsoft Windows platform or have had little interest in learning or do not use a lot of the standard Apple programs that are on your Mac this book is for you. The authors easily walk you through the features of the iPhone. If the iPhone seems easy to you and you have questions about specific functions the book is easy to jump around without having to read the book from cover to cover. The book has a good table of contents and a good index to find what you want about the iPhone.

The book has good color photos and graphics so you can look at the pictures as you work along with the authors. The authors bolded the steps in the instructions so they can easily found and followed.

The authors cover all the basic functions of the iPhone in 13 chapters from making a phone call, playing music, and surfing the web. They have 4 additional chapters that would be of interest to iPhone users. The chapter titles are "When Good iPhones Go Bad," Ten Thing for the Wish List," "Ten Terrific Web Resources," and "Ten Helpful Hints, Tips, and Shortcuts."

One feature I wanted to learn more about was the use of the Google Maps Application for the before the January 15th update.

The iPhone does so many things that the lay person can feel a little overwhelmed. This guide breaks down all of the wondeful functions into an easy to understand format. I've been a fan of Dr. Mac from back in the day. The reason being: He makes the Mac world accessible to everyone.

This book is a must have for iPhone owners!

I read the book and most of the time I have no idea what it is trying to say. I have been having a lot of flashbacks to my school years and find myself somehow in a cornor of a room with a dunce cap on and kids (do not know where they came from) but throwing spitballs at me and laughing.My only saving grace is that I have tecnonerds kids and they help me out. Their should be a book for iPhones for the terminally stupid.with lots of pictures and large print.
