    Hi all,

    My mother just got her first iPhone (a 3GS, I believe) and has requested some tutorials to get her started. Can anyone recommend me some to send her? Thanks!

    Not sure what kind of video you want to show to her?

    Your best bet is Youtube or you can use google to search for one.

    Just some general guides to the OS--esp. Safari, Mail, the App store, and the Phone app.

    I've searched google and youtube and didn't find anything. I think I remember Apple doing some guides, but I couldn't find them on their site?

    The booklet included in the box should be enough to get her started.

    But hey, why a 3GS vice the 4?

    Try apple.com/iPhone

    There are tons if quick tips like how to save a picture from an email to the phone etc. They are not videos but simple quick tips.

    She can also open iTunes on her iPhone and search for iPhone quick tips to download a ton free podcasts and there appears to be some videos there too.

    There is an iPhone User Guide in the Safari bookmarks. :)

    As someone else said, there is a user guide in the bookmarks in safari. Alternatively you can go onto the apple website on the iphone support page

    Here

    Actually, finding iPhone video tutorials is pretty hard... I tried to find decent videos for my mom (60+) through YouTube, but it took a lot of time...

    So surely, go on look manuals from apple homepage or take some time and check out youtube... You could also try http://ivideocourse.net, However, I'm not sure how good they are since I haven't tried it.

    The iphone needs no manuals or videos. That is the beauty of it. And this thread is so old it has a beard.
