    Will pick-up new ip4 from Apple store in the next day or two.
    Asked store personnel if documentation came with it -- replied no, not much.

    Asked them how I'm supposed to learn the volumns of skills associated with it.
    Answer was so unfulfilling that I don't even remember what he said.

    Where are the tutorials, guides, must knows, need to knows, don't bother learning, etc.
    Book stores?
    Particularly helpful guide for beginners, intermediates ..., An Online Site?

    I don't want to rebuild the phone, but for what it and the Att plan cost -- I'd lke to put it to work for me sooner rather than later.

    If anyone could point me to the learnng well(s), I'd appreciate it.
    Thanks,
    CM

    There is a manual in the box but it's really just the bare basics. iOS is very simple which is why you'll have a hard time finding how to's. Even my 2 year old can turn it on, navigate to a folder, tap Netflix and start streaming a movie.

    I was just trying to imply that you aren't really going to need a manual. It's quite easy to use. Within 5 minutes you'll have the hang of the system by just playing with it. Seriously. It's easy.

    You can access a user guide directly from your iPhone.

    Just start Safari, tap on the Bookmarks icon (toolbar, 2nd from right), then tap on "iPhone User Guide".

    There are books out there if you're that old school. David Pogue has a book that seems to be good. I'm sure your local library will have books available.
