    Just got my iPhone unlocked, totally new to this and many questions unanswered so i think i should put as much as there is here about how to use iPhone so other ppl can read it as well. Here are mine, if u have any pls add in. And if you know the answers to these please reply. Thank you very much.

    1. Can we send one sms to many people at a same time?
    2. Can we forward an sms?
    3. Can we copy a phone number in contact and past it into sms?
    4. Can we send business card?
    5. Can we turn off the suggestion function when u type? How?
    6. Can we only take English suggestion? How does this system work?

    7. Can we manually drag and drop songs from iTunes library to iPhone (instead of having to sync it, because i can't drag and drop)?
    8. Can we use iPhone as a hard drive like iPod?
    9. When hitting the Home button, is the application still running in the background? How do we close it if its still running?


    thank you very much.

    1-5, 7-8: No.

    6: English only, as currently the iPhone is intended as a US-only device.

    9: Yes the application is still running. If you want to fully "quit out" an application, you hold down the Home button until the Home screen appears.

    most of those things you mentioned will probably be added in an update. copy/paste in general is missing, but its tought to implement with only taps.

    Honestly, until it was asked, I never noticed. It does what it does just fine without those things, IMO.

    There's really just three things I want:

    - Video recording
    - MMS
    - Tethering

    And then it would be perfect for me. :)

    well i send at least 50 sms a day and most of them are not in english so the suggestion is very annoying for me, cause its always wrong in my language. and its just the habit of itunes, i have hundred of gigs of music i dont like to sync and not all the songs from one album i like so...

    its just the habit of using the phone. i guess i have to wait for updates
