If you have a new iPhone 3GS, or just updated your 3G with iPhone 3.0, iPhone: The Missing Manual, will bring you up to speed quickly. New York Times tech columnist David Pogue gives you a guided tour of every feature, with lots of tips, tricks, and surprises. You'll learn how to make calls and play songs by voice control, take great photos, keep track of your schedule, and more.

This entertaining book offers complete step-by-step instructions for doing everything from setting up and accessorizing your iPhone to troubleshooting. If you want to learn how iPhone 3.0 lets you search your phone, cut, copy, and paste, and lots more, this full-color book is the best, most objective resource available.

  • Use it as a phone — save time with things like Visual Voicemail, contact searching, and more
  • Treat it as an iPod — listen to music, upload and view photos, and fill the iPhone with TV shows and movies
  • Take the iPhone online — get online, browse the Web, read and compose email in landscape, send photos, contacts, audio files, and more
  • Go beyond the iPhone — use iPhone with iTunes, sync it with your calendar, and learn about the App Store, where you can select from thousands of iPhone apps

Unlock the full potential of your iPhone with the book that should have been in the box.
