When you look inside the box from a new Apple iPhone 3G, you'll find a handset, a cleaning cloth, an AC adapter, a USB cable, ear buds, and a warranty document. What you won't find is an owner's manual. But there is one!
When you look inside the box from a new Apple iPhone 3G, you'll find a handset, a cleaning cloth, an AC adapter, a USB cable, ear buds, and a warranty document. What you won't find is an owner's manual. But there is one!Third-party publishing companies have been capitalizing on the apparent lack of documentation for the iPhone 3G by offering books, book and more books. You can order many books online, get them at Apple stores, or even your favorite bookstore.
However, Apple actually does have a decent users manual, available for free download from the Apple support site. It's hard to find there, so use this link. The 152-page PDF document is clearly written and very comprehensive, with chapters on:
1. Getting started
7. More applications
9. iTunes store
Appendix A. Troubleshooting
Appendix B. Other resources
Before you go crazy trying to figure out everything yourself, or shell out hard-earned cash for an aftermarket book, download and read the documentation. With one quick read, I've already picked up some tricks:

If you donï¿¼t want to sync the video back to iPhone, set iTunes to not sync the video.
