Did you guys know you can dock and sync your iPhone, while on a call, without any interruption or the other party even knowing about it?

Pretty darn cool!

It's the little things with Apple products that make 'em so great!

I love my iPhone! :)

But so hard to keep my ear to the phone while it is docked :p

Great tip!

Been wondering if I could do this while in a call!

This is true, but I have had a different issue with the iPhone and sync: I do NOT like how the iPhone GUI monopolizes the interface during sync when you're NOT on a call (the OP's sutiation only works, it seems, when you're already on a call or receive one during sync).

"Synchronization in progress" and you can only cancel, not use the phone. I understand the need to lock data for consistency's sake, but to lock the whole device?!

I love my iPhone, but I'm not sure this is anything to necessarily write home about, my BlackJack not only OTA sync'ed while I was on a call (OTA since it was 3G) but I could also have it USB'ed into my PC (or my Mac) and be accessing all it's functionality during sync and/or USB operations.

Now, would I WANT to use the BlackJack? Before the iPhone, yeah, it was cool, but now, not so much :).

I know there is something cool that the iPhone does, but I can't tell you because I don't know about it yet :)

Here is something else I just found out when you are in your email folder instead of hitting edit to delete emails or having to open then trash if you do a quick swipe to the left a delete icon will appear on the email

I found a cool feature today. When viewing a video, you can double tap the screen to make it fill the screen. Basically, it will zoom in the picture so the letter box is no longer in view.
