It has a section in it to help connect with the media dock and the car dock, great little pieces of equipment which I got in my ATT bundle with a fine discount at the time. The author also suggests some of the Android apps, how to save on the battery life (which is problematical with this phone), and how to save on your data use.
I do not have my phone "tethered" so use it as a straight WiFi connection for things like email and Facebook, and even weather. Therefore, I have not evaluated the section in the book about tethering.
My last phone was the Blackberry Curve 8100 which had great ringtones....best alarm clock ever bar none....and the notes and address book were wonderful. I am still figuring out how to include all that information in the new phone. That means, I am not a tech savvy person and this book helps me a lot to learn the capabilities of the new 4G Atrix. And it can do a LOT of things, which are delightful. For instance, our network AIO copier is down, so I had to use the phone camera to take a picture of the tax bill and email it to my husband's computer for his file. This camera/phone/email capability is very handy. And the manual was helpful cluing me into this.
There is a version of the book available for the Kindle, and it might be useful if you don't like to carry real books around on trips. But flipping through the index and contents is just easier for me with the paper copy. Although I have a Kindle, I chose the paper copy for that reason. (If there was a significant price break, I might have chosen the Kindle version, but sadly not. I keep referring to the book as specific issues come up, and keep it right beside my phone charger.
I wanted to be a very simple user, not sharing my phone data with my emails or any social media. This book helps you share, but doesn't give you the basics to avoid sharing. My phone flashed whenever I received email - and I would prefer it to just let me know I have a pending phone message.
Also, it didn't discuss the basic connection to a PC to transfer photos., There were many other media connections discussed instead.
A "connected" teen might prefer this book. It wasn't the best to convey the basics.
