Overview

The first edition of "The iPhone Book" was chosen by Amazon's editors as their Computer/Technology Book of the Year. This new version of the book, totally updated and expanded for the 3G iPhone, was chosen by Amazon as one of their "Top 10 Must-Have Books" in their annual list of the most "gift-worthy" books of the holiday season.

Here's why this book has become such a hit with iPhone users around the world: it's not a “Tell-me-all-about-it” book, which has in-depth discussions on every­thing from wireless network protocols to advanced compression codes. Instead it's a “show-me-how-to-do-it” book, that skips all the confusing techno-jargon and just tells you, in plain simple English, exactly how to use the iPhone features you want to use most.

The book’s layout is brilliant, with each page covering just one single topic, so finding the information you need is quick and easy, with a large full-color photo on each page so you can see exactly how it works.

In this book, you'll learn:

• How to set up and manage your email the right way from the start
• How to take advantage of the iPhone's Web features (including important tips that help you avoid frustration, and get you where you want to go fast!)
• How to download and install applications from Apple's online App Store
• The key trouble-shooting tips you've got to know
• How to get your favorite photos onto your iPhone, tips for using its built-in camera, and how to make the most of the iPhone's surprisingly powerful photo features
• The tips you've got to know to use your iPhone's built-in iPod features, including watching videos, podcasts, TV shows and movies (you're going to amazed at some of the cool things you can do)
• How to use the iPhone's built-in applications to organize your life (you'll learn things in this chapter you didn't know the iPhone could do!)
• The top 20 tips for the iPhone's phone feature that will make you fall in love with it (you'll never want to use any other phone again)
• Plus so much more, including a special bonus chapter called "iPhone Killer Tips" where you'll learn those hidden secrets that you'll be passing on to your iPhone friends (and they will be amazed!).

The iPhone Book is from Scott Kelby, the award-winning author of the smash best­seller, The iPod Book, who teams up once again with gadget guru, and iPhone authority, Terry White to put together a book that is an awful lot like the iPhone itself—simple to use and fun to learn.

In this major update to the book, Scott and Terry added even more tips, more tricks, and made it even easier by focusing on just the most use­ful and most requested features (without all the techno-babble) so you can start really using your iPhone today!

BONUS VIDEO: The authors put together a special in-depth video just for readers of the book where they not only share their favorite iPhone accessories, but they share even more of those hidden little time-saving tips that can make all the difference in the world.

If you've been waiting for a book that focuses on just the most important, most useful, and most fun stuff about your iPhone—you’ve found it.

    Get an ipod touch not iphone

    Don't get an iphone it's basicily and ipod touch just with a phone and texting. Buy the lastest ipod touch for some iphone feautures such as siri, wifi texting (or get satelite wifi to text from anywhere.) , same great iphone camera and picture quality, etc. If you want to make phone calls just get a cheap pre paid cell phone for $20 . Its that simple.

    Excellent guide ...

    Scott Kelby manages to fill all the blanks that the instruction manual lacks. His layout is simplistic so that even the most inept electronic adventurer might succeed in going to new heights never achieved before.

    Ovverall great reference for the new and always learning iphone user.

    Loved this book. It was very easy to look up things, well illustrated and easy to understand. If you are just a person wanting to know more about everything your iPhone can do, buy this book and you may get as smart as your phone!

    Best of the Best

    This is the best "how to" book I've ever purchased. It is easy to read, very thorough, and very simple. In the first 30 minutes I learned more than if I had spent two hours in a workshop. The two writers have a very down to earth style, and even make you laugh at times. This is the only guide to the iPhone you'll ever need.

    I love the iPhone book

    For someone that is not particular techno-savvy, this has been a lifesaver. Each page has a new function so the user is not overwhelmed with too much information, allowing someone like me to learn at my own speed. I am much further along with my phone than I would have been without it. I would recommend it to anyone. A knowledgeable user can always benefit from learning a new shortcut.

    Iphone reference book by Scott Kelby, Terry White

    Since there is no real documentation for the Iphone I purchased, this book was very helpful in getting started. I refer to it frequently and recommend it highly. Its light humor makes it fun to read.
