Someone already mentioned that tip on the previous page.
You can do it also with the shift key.

Tip: Read all pages before posting a tip so you ain't repeating like a broken record, and playing more like a smooth iPhone.

Sorry if this has been posted before but I'm still new to the forum and haven't had much time to look around. Anyways, here's my tip:

Youtube on the phone has limited videos as of right now. So if you don't find the video you're looking for on youtube, try searching on Google video. Since all google videos are downloadable for iPod Video/PSP that means it's viewable on our iPhones. Just make sure you click on a google video (there are a lot of youtube videos linked through google video) Then on the pull down bar select Ipod Video/Sony PSP and click the Download button to the left of that. Then a player will open and you'll see a faint quicktime logo in the middle, and shortly thereafter you'll be enjoying your video :)

I know it's nothing crazy but it's something I figured out after being very disappointed with how minimal the video selection is for the phones on youtube. Hopefully this comes in handy for somebody.

Won't work with EDGE either, at least when I tested it (not even if I waited).

Not that I would want to use it via EDGE, but there are times I wouldn't mind waiting to see a full res video rather than an EDGEified YouTube clip.

if i restore my iPhone on iTunes does anything bad will happened?
There was just a thread about this. iTunes backs up all of your recent calls, contacts, text's and so on. The only thing you will have to do is add your email account in again, setup voicemail and reset your settings to where they were before!

I have the same thing, its something with the MP3 then and it cant find the album cover (iTunes).. I don't have a definitive explanation, other then that is normal, don't reset your iPhone for that!

Handy Item That Might Be Useful to Some

I have a database of nearly 200 people that I would like to have phone numbers readily available for. I do not, however, want to add these people into my address book or contacts. They are fairly temporary.

So, here's what I did. I exported a list of names with phone numbers to a text file, copied it into a mail message, and emailed it to myself. So, now in my phone's email folder I have a file with my whole list of names with phone numbers right next to each one. The beauty to this is all I have to do is tap once on the number next to the name and a call is immediately made. Neat.

I'm sure this could have other applications as well.
My 2 cents...

It doesn't actually download on your phone. It just opens the video in a player and streams it via quicktime. The video should play shortly after you click the download button.

awesomest, bestest tip thus far for this guy! Thanks. I've been stuck in an old OS 9 beauty of a roladex called TouchBase Pro that I've used since early '90's and has over a thousand contacts in it. Still have not figured a way to cleanly export them over to Address Book and even if I could now I have more of a mess cause of duplicates as these same contacts email addys are in Address book but not their phones, streets, etc. TBP sorts so beautifully and simply, much better than Address Book, just have not been able to wean off it. I know, I know -- but right now only one of my 7 active Macs runs intel chip so I'm still OK. But the day is coming........

Great Tip, solves bunch of my problemos....... even the phone numbers entered with a 1- in front of them worked fine which kind of shocked me so don't ahve to edit those out.
