    iPhone

    Just got an iPhone today so I thought I would start a thread about it. Anyone else have experience with these? Any tips or tricks to share? Good applications for download? Sites for ringtones and wallpapers?

    Re: iPhone

    I've had my iphone for about a year now, but I'm not the one to ask about all the bells and whistles.

    I do like having internet access in most of the places that I go to. I really like the texting feature.

    One thing I have noticed, is that if you do any amount of air travel and you put the phone in "plane" mode, you actually use up more battery than if you just put the phone on "vibrate".

    I also use the calendar, weather and camera a lot, although the camera desperately needs a flash.

    Enjoy!

    Re: iPhone

    I've had the 3G since mid-July. Love it.

    Wallpapers are easy... you can set up a folder on your computer with photos and have iTunes sync to it, and once the images are on your computer, you can use any of them as the home wallpaper. Ringtones aren't as simple. Apple officially has two means of getting ringtones onto your iPhone -- pay 99 cents to turn an iTunes song purchase into a ringtone, or, if you're a Mac user, you can use GarageBand to create one. But if you Google something like "iPhone ringtones Windows MP3," you'll find a workaround that will let Windows users turn MP3s into ringtones, in essence manually replicating the steps a Mac user would use GarageBand for.

    I've downloaded a whole bunch of free stuff from the App Store but haven't felt compelled to pay for anything yet. Oops, I take that back. I spent 99 cents on "Koi Pond" because it fascinates the kids. Out of all my apps, I use Sportacular the most.

    One very large feature, the one that made me comfortable spending the money, is the ability to hook into corporate Exchange e-mail. I have a home office, and this makes it easier on me to unhook from the computer during the day and I know I won't miss anything. I have my calendar set up to sync with Exchange, but my contacts sync with my personal laptop. I like being able to split that up, and not have it all-or-nothing with Exchange.

    One more tip: I've heard that if you go into settings and turn Location Services off when you don't need it, it helps battery life quite a bit.

    Oh yeah, and it has a phone and an iPod and stuff.

    I know that with a normal computer you have to go into iTunes and create an account. It doesn't take long. I would assume that it transfers over.

    You need to remember to hold this next to the phone.

    Correct, you have to use your iTunes account login to get stuff from the App Store.

    Sweet. I paid about a thousand bucks for that phone when it came out. My rivals with the bag phones were soooooo jealous.

    Used a Polaroid for many years too.

    I used to have a phone like that. I think it's # 6 to call in an airstrike....

    Lost? I think not.

    I moved on to Ann Margrock.
