1. How do I get the bluetooth to recognize my headset as soon as I turn the headset on?

2. Is there a way to adjust how quickly the screen goes black...I'm all about saving battery but it goes dark too fast

3. What brightness do you guys have yours set to? I put mine all the way up because it didnt look bright enough at the half way mark

4. Is there really no way to add other ringtones other than the ones that come with the phone?

5. Should I let the battery go all the way down before I fully charge it for the 1st time? I know iPods and other phones work like this to get the most out of the battery life long term but Im not sure iPhone is like this

1 - Leave BT on and it will recognize the headset when you turn it on.

2 - Settings > General > Autolock

3 - Halfway with auto turned off

4 - Not yet without a hack, but I predict soon

5 - Yes, do it once a month.
