First-Time iPhone-r Here!

I just ordered the iPhone 5 and I've never owned one or even any kind of smart phone for that matter! Tell me everything to know! Tips, tricks, useful apps, secrets you have learned, things to not do, things to do, or anything else you feel I should know!! I am a sponge and I am ready to soak up all you have to throw at me. Drop some knowledge!

Here ya go, you can find out all you need to know there.

As far as apps you just need to brows the sections and see what you might like. There is no magic unless you jailbreak, but that's not available for the i5 yet.

haha Thanks for that! I was kind of looking for a little bit more of a personal account rather than what apple says. I definitely will check it out though.

When it arrived go to bookmarks in Safari. There is an iPhone user guide there. That will help. Also a good tips & tricks app for iOS 6 is

Avoid the iPhone forums on MacRumors! We have a bunch of OCD people here that will show all the defects you can imagine on your new iPhone and make you realize it's not as perfect as you thought it was!

Yeah I've already noticed that! Luckily I don't have the slightest clue what I'm in for because I haven't looked at any of those threads. However, I did already buy a bumper and screen protectors that should come before the phone does just to make sure its safe

Welcome!

I, unlike most men, like to flip through the manual for operation and what not.
