    NEW!!Invert screen colors!

    It doesn't show it in the screenshot, but go to Setting > General > Accessibility > White on Black > Turn ON


    NEW!!Triple CLICK Home Button!?!?

    Yes, triple click the home button! Setting > General > Accessibility > Triple Click Home. You can set it to one of the options or just click "ASK"



    Scrub through Audio and Video (found this from apple.com)

    When you’re watching a video or listening to music or a podcast, the scrubber bar lets you skip to any point along the timeline. You can adjust the scrub rate from high-speed to fine scrubbing by sliding your finger down as you drag the playhead along the scrubber bar.


    Speak too many languages and have to keep clicking to the correct language?

    All you have to do is hold the WORLD icon, and move your finger up, and all the available languages will pop up. Just let go on which one you like.


    Double Tap Shift for Caps Lock

    “Settings > General > Keyboard > Enable Caps Lock” should do the trick. Then, just double-tap the shift key to type away in capitals.


    Enable International Keyboards for International TLDs

    Go to Setting > General > Keyboard > International Keyboards. Then, once you turn on the ones you want, they’ll show up inside the .com button.


    An easier way to return to the alphabet keyboard from the number keyboard

    To enter a number or symbol quickly, touch and hold 123, then select the key you want. Lifting your finger returns you to the alphabet keyboard.

    Everyone that has owned a phone with a soft or hard keyboard knows that.

    It was turned off by default when I first got an iPhone.

    I've left that function on ever since.

    I was hoping for something that I didn't know, but I guess it's a good thing that you are reminding people about this. It took me a long time until I accidentally found out about this feature on my iPod.

    Haha I've been trying to figure that out for a little while. I'm new to iphone though and my storm worked by holding down the button for a few seconds.

    When using the keypad, when I used to want to type in a number or a symbol, I would tap the '123' button (so that the keypad switches to numerics), tap the number I wanted and then tap the '123' button again to switch back to the qwerty keypad.

    ...well here's a tip which I only found out the other day (and I've owned an iPhone since my old 3G days:rolleyes:)

    Instead of tapping the '123' button - tap and hold it (the keypad will switch to the number kaypad) and then drag your finger to the desired number, lift your finger off the desired number and voila - it will enter the number you chose + at the same time, switch back to the qwerty keypad ;)

    Not everyone is aware of all the features on the iPhone, a while ago I posted this and it was beaten to death, so give the OP a break folks.

    If you hit the Power/Sleep button and the home button at the same time, it takes a screen shot of what is on your screen and saves it to your photos so you can email it, txt it, or post it?

    Enjoy Everyone :D

    I figured that one out last week. I've been having a lot of fun finding these things as a new iPhone user. Time and again I'm impressed with how intuitive things are with this phone. Thanks for the post!!
