Why You Need An iPhone Ever since the introduction of the Apple iPhone, there has been a huge public response to this product. Millions of people are proclaiming the wonders and beauty of this cell phone, iPod, calendar and mobile Internet device. However, the real question is, why do you need to have an iPhone? Of course, it seems that it is a great product because it streamlines your electronic productivity and allows you to have many products wrapped up into one, but what are the real perks to having an iPhone? The answer to this question really depends on who you ask. However, there are many actual reasons why the iPhone is a great purchase. The first reason why having an iPhone is a good idea is because it helps to streamline your life. There is no denying that many of us live a very hectic and extremely busy life. We rarely have time to relax, nonetheless running around the house looking for your cell phone, iPod and PDA. However, when you have an iPhone you are actually getting all of these electronics, in one slim and sophisticated product. Many people who used to carry around two or three electronic devices are thrilled at how easy and convenient their iPhone actually is. They no longer have to worry about running out of pocket space for your mobile devices, thus they are able to move throughout their life without having to worry about leaving their iPod at their friends house or their cell phone at the restaurant. With the iPhone, everything is packaged in a beautiful, and one-of-a-kind, device. Another reason why you actually need an iPod is because you are able to have the world at your fingertips, literally. Unlike other cell phones, which allow you to look at a dumb-down version of the Internet, with the iPhone, you are actually surfing the net. If you have never been able to access the Internet while sitting in traffic, or looking up your friend's MySpace profile on a whim, than you do not understand how great it is to be able to access the World Wide Web on a moments notice. This constant availability to information is a great feature, and once you have it you will never want to own an internet-less cell phone again. Because so many of us have jobs across town, and friends that live on the other side of the city, we are always in our cars. But what happens when you are asked to go somewhere, and you don't know where it's at? Normally, you get on the Internet and MapQuest it, however, if you have an iPhone, than accurate directions to any destination is only a few 'taps' away. When you have an iPhone, than you automatically gain access to the powerful mapping service, Google Maps, and it is with this application you can find your local pizza joint, Starbucks or even Public Library. One of the coolest features is not the fact that you can get directions to this location, but you can also call them too. Say you typed in "Starbucks," you would then be shown the closest Starbucks to where you are currently at. You can then call them and place your order, or ask them questions about their coffee. Very rarely will you find a device that not only connects you to your world, but also brings you closer to it. With technology seemingly pushing the "world" further away, it is extremely refreshing to find a mobile device that connects you with those around you in such a dynamic way. How To Make Your iPhone Ringer Louder Perhaps one of the most aggravating aspects of having a cell phone is when you miss a telephone call. There are many reasons why you can miss a phone call, however, when you miss a very important call due to your ringer's low volume, this is extremely aggravating. If you own an iPhone, than you may have missed many phone calls due to the low ringer volume, which is very surprising. When you have a cell phone as high-tech as the iPhone, than you expect it to be able to properly notify you when you have a phone call, however, due to the iPhone's lower than normal ringer volume many people are missing phone calls. But what can you do about the iPhone's low ringer volume? Many people who have an iPhone think that the reason why the ringer volume is so low is because of the iPhone's small speakers. And this makes sense because the smaller the speakers are, the lower the volume, right? While this may seem to be a great reason why the iPhone's volume is so low, it may not be the actual cause. The main cause for a ringer volume that is extremely low may be due to the actual audio levels in your phone. Many people have found that with their iPhone, the stock ringers have such a low volume. In order to fix this, you may have to find new ringtones other than those that are already on your iPhone. The main cause for the ringtones being so quite is the fact that they are made of a low frequency. Thus, if you want to be able to have a louder ringtone, than you will need to find a ringtone that is made of a higher frequency. This may sound difficult, but you can find a higher frequency ringtone by simply turning to your computer. If you are a MAC owner, than you will be able to go into the application Garage Band and find a new ringtone within this location. Perhaps the best ringtone from Garage Band is the "Cell Phone Ringing" sound clip. However, putting a new ringtone onto your iPhone requires a little work on your part. In order to put this clip onto your iPhone, than you will need to run iFunstastic, which is for individuals that have an Intel-MAC, or if you are using a Windows PC than you will want to run the application iPhoneRingToneMaker or iBrickr. These applications will install the ringtones from your computer to your iPhone, thus giving you the ability to have a ringtone that is clearly audible. The key to having a successful ringtone is picking one that is naturally loud by default. This will increase the sound volume that is being release, and thus you will never miss another phone call because you didn't hear it. When you have an iPhone, you want to enjoy every aspect of it, however, if the volume of the iPhone is lower than desired, than you will not be able to enjoy your iPhone to its fullest. How to extend your iPhone battery life If there is anything that annoys more cell phone users it is loosing battery power while you are on the phone. This has happened to nearly everybody, and at least once it caught you by complete surprise. When you are running a cell phone as powerful as the iPhone, it is easy to understand why the battery power begins to drain. When you are listening to your favorite song, checking your email and text messaging several friends at once, you are requiring a lot of the cell phones' power. Thus, you will begin to drain your cell phone of battery life quicker than you thought. Even though, on the Apple website, they clearly explain the battery life expectations, they only include the information if you are running one application at a time. However, if iPhone users are known for anything, it is for their ability to multitask. Yet, multitasking means a shorter battery life. However, there are several things that you can do to make your iPhone's battery life even longer. Of course, the iPhone isn't known for draining its battery extremely quick, there is always room for a prolonged battery performance. If you follow these tips, than you will have an iPhone that lasts you longer than you could even imagine. Perhaps the best tip that anyone with an iPhone can follow is to simply turn off your Bluetooth if you are not using it. Very little people understand that when you keep your Bluetooth turned on, when you are not using it, you are draining your battery. This is because there is a set amount of power that is controlled by the Bluetooth section of your iPhone, and the power is draining because the phone is constantly searching for other Bluetooth devices. If you do not want to pair with a Bluetooth device, than make sure that your Bluetooth is turned off. Another tip to making your battery life on your iPhone last longer is to always lock your iPhone when you are done using it. When you are finished talking on the phone with your best friend, checking your e-mail or sending a text message, make sure that you activate the lock button. Many people wait for the screen to shut down by itself after they are using it, while this may seem like a great idea, you are wasting battery life by doing so. Also, make sure that you set your auto-lock because this is a great way to ensure your phone will lock itself just in case you forget to. There are many iPhone owners that set their auto lock for five minutes after use. However, if you multiply this five minutes of power usage by ten times per day, your battery will not last you as long as you might think. This is why it is always suggested that you set your auto lock for one minute (1) after you have completed using your phone. This will ensure that the iPhone screen will not stay lit when it is not being used. If you want to have a hassle-free way to save battery life, than this is the way to do it.

How To Send MMS Messages On iPhone For those who have the Apple iPhone, it is probably quickly becoming your number one used electronic device, and why not? With such amazing features as internet access, music storage and the simplistic interface design, this product is literally taking the place of three major personal electronic devices. However, no matter what you use your iPhone for, it is still a cell phone, and with your cell phone there are several things that you expect it to do. One of the major reasons why so many people flocked towards the iPhone is because it promised to make text messaging extremely simple and convenient. And after using the iPhone for any length of time, it is easy to understand that text messaging with this cell phone is extremely easy and quick. However, if you are used to being able to communicate to your friends and business partners through text and multimedia messages, or MMS, you may find yourself being extremely disappointed with the iPhone. The reason for this is because throughout all of the major improvements and superior features of the iPhone, it still lacks one simple feature. This feature is the ability to send MMS text messages, such as video and picture messaging. When many users first discovered the lack of this feature, there was an outcry because so many people rely on this means of communication to keep their contacts up-to-date on their current activities. Even though the iPhone is an amazing piece of electronic equipment, not having the capabilities for sending MMS text messages is a major turn-off for so many potential customers and current ones as well. However, what if you were to find out that there was a way to get around this road block, and still send pictures of that funny looking dog to all your friends? Even though you can't send a MMS text message, there is a way to still send pictures to your friend's cell phones, without the means of text messaging. Most cell phones that have been made within recent years now come with e-mail capabilities, whether the users know this or not. It is by the means of e-mail that you are now able to send MMS messages to all of your friends. It is extremely easy to do this with your iPhone, and requires very little time on your part. What you will do is "e-mail" the photos to your recipient; however, the person you are "e-mailing" doesn't have to have e-mail support on their phone in order to receive your message. The only requirement is your recipient must be able to receive MMS messages. What you will do is find the photo you want to send on your iPhone and tap the send photo link, which is located on the bottom left hand side of your iPhone. To send the MMS message, you will include the recipient's phone number along with their carrier's e-mail prefix. An example of this would be email@example.com for a T-mobile telephone number. This does require that you know who your recipient's carrier is, however, all you have to do is ask your friend who their cell phone carrier is. After you have done this, you will be able to send the MMS message to them, and they will receive it like a MMS text message. Below are the Email Prefixes for the major cell phone carriers: Verizon, vzpix.com; AT&T/Cingular, mms.att.com; T-Mobile, tmomail.net; Sprint/Nextel, messaging.sprintpcs.com; Virgin Mobile, vmobl.net; Amp'd Mobile, vzwpix.com; Alltel, message.alltel.com The Art of Double Tapping Your iPhone Screen If you have owned your iPhone for more than a week, than you have probably mastered all of the various applications and features within this phone, however, did you know there are several tricks that can actually enhance your iPhone experience? These tricks are nothing more than utilizing what is already been built-into the iPhone. Of course, the main reason why many people don't understand these tricks is because they have not taken the time to learn the secrets of their phone. However, this is very common, because when you have a product like the iPhone, there are so many blatant features that searching for the hidden ones can seem monotonous and even unnecessary. Yet, if you want to experience all that you are iPhone can do for you, than you must take some time to uncover these hidden tricks. When you have an iPhone, you probably have noticed that you really never have to double-tap a single item. It seems that everything on this interface reacts with a simple one-tap motion. However, there are three main interfaces that do react to double-tapping differently than if you were to only tap the screen once. The first of these functions can be used when you are using your iPhone to watch videos. You have probably noticed that when you are watching a movie on your iPhone, the screen is showing a letterbox image. This is when there are two black lines under and above the picture, thus giving you a wider view. Actually, this is how the director sees the film, and how it was originally shot. Yet, there are some individuals who cannot stand to have letterbox on while they are watching a film. This is where the double-tapping feature comes in handy. When you are watching a movie, simply double tap the screen, and you will eliminate the letterbox view, and will then be able to enjoy a full screen version. However, there are some downfalls to using this feature. If the movie you are watching has any type of subtitles, than you will quickly find that watching it in full screen mode may cut-off the words. If you want to undo the full screen mode, all you have to do is simply double tap the screen and it will be restored to letterbox formatting. This is one of the greatest features on the iPhone; however, it is also one of the lesser talked about. The iPhone is so amazing because it gives you choices on how you want to be entertained. Unlike other devices that use a standardized method to showing you videos, you are given a choice on how you want to view your movies. This is a great feature. The double-tap feature is also used on other programs throughout your iPhone. You will find these features in the Photos, Safaris and Google Maps programs. With all of these applications, the double tap feature basically means you are going to be zooming into whatever you tapped. Say, you wanted to get a better view of the picture that is on the main page of The New York Times online edition. You would then double tap the picture, and it would be magnified two-times. Everything that is being magnified on your screen is done by two. The double tap feature is perfect for a wide variety of uses, and if you were unaware of it, grab your iPhone and begin testing it out.

You want to be able to listen to your favorite songs, but you don't want to leave your iPhone out in the open, where sweat and other harmful elements can ruin your new phone. Because of this, many people have simply kept their iPhone at home, and used their iPod when they go workout.

However, this can sometimes be extremely difficult, especially when there aren't very many resources to help you learn new techniques. A great example of this is with the new Apple iPhone. When you first purchase an iPhone, than you have probably spent many hours getting familiar with the various technologies that are inside this amazing cell phone, however, there are some tips that aren't learned by simply playing around with the phone. In order to learn about these tips, than you must first learn them, and one of the best tips concerns the keyboard. When you have such a unique feature as the touch screen keyboard, than there are several tips that you must know in order to keep your messages flowing. When you follow these tips than you will be able to type quicker and error free, as well as being able to type easier than ever before. The first of these tips concerns actually typing the letters into the iPhone. When you want to enter a letter, you tap on it; however, the letter isn't placed onto the screen until you lift your finger off of it. Thus, if you touch the wrong key than you can simply fix this error by sliding your finger to the correct letter. Then when you have found the right letter or number, you can lift your finger and the letter will be placed onto the screen. This tip helps fix the majority of errors, and will save you time. Many people have found that the auto-correction feature within the keyboard is a great way to keep your writing clear and easy. However, it is very easy to accept a word that you didn't want to type. If you want to steer clear from this confusion than you need to learn how to accept and reject a suggested word. When you want to accept a word than you will want to tap either return, space or tap a punctuation mark. However, if you want to reject a suggested word, than you will simply want to finish typing the word you want and then you will have to tap the completed word. A reminder, if you write a full word out two different times, and then tap on them both times, the iPhone will actually add the word to its dictionary. It takes a couple of weeks to store all of your most used words into the dictionary, however, once you have done this typing on your iPhone will be extremely fast. The last tip has to deal with the capitalization of words. If you want to capitalize the first letter of a word, you simply tap the shift key and then tap the letter you want capitalized, but what happens when you want to capitalize the entire word? This is very easy, and doesn't require you to tap the shift key before each letter. You will want to go to settings and then tap general after that tap keyboard. From there you will tap "Enable Caps Lock," and then when you double tap the shift key it will light up blue, and now you will be able to type in all caps. Weather Resistant iPhone Cases One of the most requested accessories for the iPhone is the weather proof case. The importance of having an iPhone case that is weather proofed is extremely high, mainly because the iPhone does not have extreme amounts of protection. While it is an amazing phone with incredible capabilities, it is quite vulnerable to the elements. Thus, if you are stuck in a rain storm, you may find that your iPhone is not completely safe by simply resting in your pocket. If you live in a city that gets decent amount of rain, or if you simply want to protect your iPhone from the outside world, than you will want to purchase an iPhone weather-proofed case. But what are the best cases for this type of protection? If you have searched the marketplace for weather resistant iPhone cases, than you have probably noticed that many of them are bulky and, quite frankly, unattractive, while this may be true for many weather resistant iPhone cases, it isn't the truth for all of them. There is one case that is stunning, both in its appearance and also in its ability to protect your iPhone from the harshness of Mother Earth. This iPhone case is the OtterBox Defender Series, which is a smart and rugged case that will add a certain style to your iPhone. This case still allows you to have full interaction with every feature of your iPhone, including pictures, all while giving you true water-resistant technology. It doesn't matter what type of iPhone that you currently have, whether it be the 4GB model or the 8GB model, they will both fit in this iPhone case. One of the coolest features about this iPhone case is the fact that it allows you to have full interaction with the iPhone screen, while still protecting it. This is made possible by a unique membrane that has been patented due to its unique ability to give you such accurate interactivity, while still giving you weather resistant protection. Actually, you are getting three complete layers of protection within this case, which is much more than many other "weather resistant" cases. Another feature that makes this iPhone case so unique is the fact that it is completely wrapped in silicone, which has two great purposes. The first purpose is to allow you to have a seamless grip on your iPhone, so you will be less likely to drop it while walking throughout your day. And the second reason the silicone is such a great feature is because it will protect your iPhone if you do accidently drop it. Normally if you drop your phone, you are scared to even look at it because you don't know if the screen is cracked, or if it is completely broke. However, because of the silicone you will have superior protection against accidental damage. It should be noted though that the silence switch is not available to use when your iPhone is in this case. So, if you must silence your iPhone, it is suggested that you do so before you put it into the weather-proof case. Various Ways To Use Twitter On Your iPhone Perhaps one of the main reasons so many people buy the iPhone is for the fact that it allows you to stay connected to the world in so many dynamic ways. Instead of simply using the phone to connect with your friends, you can do so through text messaging and even e-mail.

When you have an iPhone, you are probably going to be on the Internet more than you could possibly imagine. Whether you are in a waiting room, sitting in class or on a bus, you will be checking your e-mail and other popular sites.

Of course, when you are cleaning your iPhone, you don't want to simply wash it with any type of cleaners, because these cleaners could actually cause the iPhone to malfunction, thus giving you a defective product. When you are cleaning your iPhone, you must ensure that you take extra care, and don't do it if you are in a rush.

Many business professionals want the security in knowing that their cell phone service will not be disrupted simply because they travel from country to country. Since the iPhone is serviced by AT&T/Cingular, you will not have to worry about loosing service, or features, because the iPhone uses the GSM system. GSM is an acronym that stands for Global System for Mobile communication, thus allowing you to use your cell phone in many different countries. Actually, there are over one hundred countries around the world that use GSM, thus allowing you to keep using your iPhone without any hindrance to cell service. Many business travelers go to Europe and Asia, and since their iPhone uses GSM, they are able to have excellent service throughout both of these locations. However, there are some precautions that you will want to take before you leave the country with your iPhone. If you have ever traveled throughout the world and used your cell phone, you were probably surprised by extremely high charges for phone and data use. This is because your number is an American telephone number, thus every call you make within another country is looked upon by your carrier as an international call. If you are overseas for quite some time, than it is easy to accumulate several hundred dollars worth of fees and roaming charges, this is why you will want to alter you calling plan if you travel overseas frequently. AT&T/Cingular has really great international calling plans that are very cost effective. Thus you are able to still travel throughout the world without having to worry about roaming and international call fees. Also, if you use data on your iPhone, which most of you do, you will want to make sure that you have an international data plan as well. The worst homecoming surprise you can get is opening your cell phone bill only to find several hundred dollars worth of extra charges and fees. However, if you plan ahead and make sure that you obtain a new service plan that includes international cell phone use, you will not have to worry about extremely high charges.
