    We've gotten copies of the full iPhone Training manual provided to AT&T employees that gives us a few more details about Apple's iPhone. Thanks to cindynjgirl79 for providing the scans.

    The training manual is broken down into features of the iPhone, and we've provided hilights and links to the scans:

    - Dial any telephone number with the touch of a finger
    - Create and manage a list of telephone numbers you call most
    - If you choose to answer the call, the video will pause and resume once the call ends
    - iPhone syncs contact information from the computer to iPhone (from Address Book on a Mac or Outlook or Outlook Express on a Windows PC).
    - Built-in speakerphone
    - iPhone lets you carry on a phone conversation while you simultaneously browse the Internet or send an email.

    ...and that it can't be used for instant messaging :cool: It also says that it does not support sending pictures or videos...is that true? You can't text a pic to someone???

    Other than that...very good information.

    So, from looking at the email page, only Yahoo mail is pushed down automatically? POP3/IMAP requires you to go out and get your mail manually?

    Doesn't do mms but you should be able to email pics and videos to the persons phone usually a phonenum@carriersdomain.com/net etc. Like I use verizont to send to a phone you email phonenum@vzw3g.com.

    The links don't work until I remove "%22%20target=%22_new" after the .jpg in the URL.

    It was a nice read though.

    Yeah. Those were my thoughts exactly.

    It seems like they've considered many possibilities already. It's cool, for example, that you'll be able to browse and talk at the same time.

    This is so cool! I can't wait to get my fingers on it. I have some errands to run tomorrow, so I will swing by my local Cingular store and see what they have to say. And maybe I'll make an offer for the iPhone banner for when they don't want/need it anymore.

    Edit: I do have a question. Does it say how incoming calls are handeled? I know when Steve pressed the sleep/wake button that made it wake up and sleep. But what happens when you get a call and it is asleep? And what is the power/lock thing?

    So if MediaNet isn't available for the iPhone, then what data plan would we need?

    No messenger messaging is kind of a deal breaker for me.

    I don't believe it is on any of the pages that were posted, but I read at the end of the book it said there may be more features added at the release and AT&T employees will be notified of them. :)
