From the Back Cover

Fill your iPhone with cool stuff, ask it to play a song or call a friend, and find anything with Spotlight!

The iPhone keeps getting better, and this book keeps you in tune with the newest features. The basics are here too: how to use the multitouch interface, set up iTunes and buy music, surf the Web, check and send e-mail and text messages, watch movies and TV shows (and YouTube), admire pictures, download apps — and even make phone calls.

  • Stay organized — synchronize contacts, calendars, e-mail accounts, and bookmarks between your computer and your iPhone
  • Do you copy? — copy, cut, and paste text, photos, and videos from one application to another

  • Record it — capture a thought, a memo, or a meeting with Voice Memos then trim your recording and send it via e-mail or MMS

  • Shake and shuffle your music — create playlists, scroll through your music library, and customize your listening experience

  • Find yourself — identify your location via GPS, get turn-by-turn directions, find true north with the compass, and search for a location

Open the book and find:

  • Steps for getting started with your iPhone
  • How to make a phone call with Voice Control

  • Details about connecting to a Wi-Fi network

  • Easy ways to check the weather and get stock quotes

  • How to connect wirelessly to Bluetooth devices

  • Tips for taking advantage of push notifications

  • How MobileMe can help find your iPhone if it has been lost

  • Advice on troubleshooting your iPhone

I am not reviewing this book, as I have not read it. I am posting this to point out that the reviews that have been posted are not for this book. It is readily apparent that the reviews are outdated because the book is for the iPhone 3G and 3G-S. The iPhone 3G-S did not go on the markent until June of 2009, and most of the reviews pre-date that period. The 3.0 software update that was released in June of 2009 added a very significant number of features to all iPhones (the original iPhone, the iPhone 3G, and the new iPhone 3G-S). Neither the 3.0 software update OR the 3G-S were available when most of these reviews were written, so they are irrelevent.

I am a very happy Amazon customer, but I think that Amazon needs to be more prudent about ensuring that they post product reviews that are relevent to the product that they appear with!

My niece always took care of my technical problems, phone or computer. Well, she went off to college [proud of her]. The times I've run into a question about how to accomplish some step on my iPhone, the book walked me through the solution. Niece came home for a visit, was impressed how 'knowledgeable' her Auntie had become. p.s. Mac for Dummies equally good.

Don't know how my wife and I could have ever learned how to use the IPhone without the help provided in this publication.

This is a very helpful book for me (I am an old guy who didn't grow up with an electronic device growing out of my hand, and I definitely need help with my iPhone). However, as a professional writer myself, I find this book less skillfully written than I had hoped. The authors engage in a lot of giddy chatter to put the reader at ease, but they sometimes lack the ability to explain clearly and succinctly. I would have preferred less cute talk and more nitty-gritty. The book is quite helpful, but it represent a missed opportunity, I think, to be even moreso.

I could only love this product if I really used and enjoyed all the options on my 3GS iphone. However, I can't imagine using what I need without this manual. I've relied on the Dummy books for years and appreciate having such a comprehensive resource.

This book is extremely helpful. Certainly more helpful than what comes with the IPhone. I was not happy with that at all. This was worth the money. I've learned more about the IPhone and I've already had it a year.

I chose the iPhone because I already had the iPad. Still, I would not be able to figure out most of this phone without this great book! I still use it every week, and keep it right on my desk!
