    Highly Recommended

    Although I am a long-time iMac user, I was new to the iPhone. I was immediately able to use it as a basic phone, but not having a teenager handy, was having difficulty taking advantages of all of the many other features available. Using this book, I was able to greatly expand my use of the phone. While my phone is a 3GS, I am able to become comfortable with its use and will soon upgrade to the iPhone 4GS (or whatever might be the current version at that time.

    Great reference book

    Well written informative. I refer to this book often and have found new easy ways to do things. A very good how to guide for the I phone 3GS

    By the way altough I love my I phone 3GS, Is anyone else having serious problems keeping the battery charged? I have backup batteries but unless connected to a power source constantly the power goes down very rapidly. If I fully charge the phone and do not use it at all, by the time I leave work the battery is completely dead. Anyone else have this problem?

    Nice Book

    If you are a Mac person the new iPhone 3s will not be hard to use bring a lot of the intuitive features of all Macs. But, like all Apple products there is always more than meets the eye and this book is a great help in finding the little things that make the use of the iPhone even better.

    If you are a windows person the book will help you understand the idea of simplicity that is Apple.

    A good investment for anyone new to the iPhone or that would like to dig around a bit more.

    There is a lot of really basic stuff but worth the time to find the good stuff.
