Well, in Safari you can tap the menu bat at the top to go to the top of the page you're viewing.

hold the home button for 6 seconds and that force quits a program, when texting and emailing hold a letter and there are options that pop up for that letter that let you do things such as [ñ and é]... try it...its cool.

Throw it really hard against a brick wall and a gold coin pops out!

:laugh2:

Not hidden, but buried: you can audit your account or even get to your AT&T account web page from within Prefs. I've found it handy.

It took me a month to find out that that little blob on the headphone wire was a microphone, and that if you squeeze it once it pauses the ipod function, and double clicking it moves you on to the next track.

this dude needed help... Be more specific, to get to what he is talking bout go to settings--> phone--> ATT services and there are all the account features.. This is a cool feature but I found it faster to access if you make that page a book mark in safari.. That is just me though

If you double tap the homebuyton, and iPod function pops out so you don't have to exit your program to switch songs. You can do it on the spot.

When you are on the ipod and its showing album art while playing in portrait mode , you can swipe towards the right on album art and the list where the current song displays. Of course the other option is tapping the top left hand corner.

I didn't know about that and it's very helpful when I write in French!

I agree - I find switching keyboards a pain in the derrière because all the letters are in the wrong place. Having a UK keyboard with all the right characters available is one of the iPhone's best features. Apart from the scrolling, the zooming, and the sliding, the web browsing, the data, the email - that sort of thing.

Holding the letter key when typing does not bring up any options for me. What am I missing?

I did discover tho while trying to solve this, that if you go into general settings and turn on more than one langauge for the keyboard, a "globe" icon will appear at the bottom of the keyboard that will allow you to toggle through the different langauge keyboards.
