Summary of thread.
Button on top of the volume buttons on the side puts you in Silent mode.
Reboot -> hold the Sleep/Wake Button and the Home button for approx. 10 seconds to force reboot the iPhone if it freezes
If you have a frozen app or too many background apps you can force them to terminate by holding the home button 8-10 seconds.
If you are in recovery mode and iTunes is making you restore, Just unplug your phone and turn it off for 1 min. It will leave recovery mode and return to normal.
Holding the home button and pressing the sleep/wake button takes a screenshot on firmware 2.0. Your screen will flash and the screenshot will be saved in the camera roll.
Tapping the top menu bar returns you to the top of whatever scroll area you're in. This applies to safari, messages, songs etc.
if you put your fingers together and spread them on the screen, it will zoom in...conversely, if you bring them together, it zooms out. This applies to photos and maps and browsers.
*3001#12345#* is field test mode.
(Splurd: Anyone care to elaborate more on this?)
Go to the calculator app on your iphone, turn your iphone horizontally and your calculator turns into an scientific calculator...
The keyboard works in widescreen mode when you're using safari with the phone on its side. (with latter updates it works with SMS as well)
Under iPod -> more -> edit you can select the icons that appear at the bottom of the iPod app. Not lifesaving but cool. I wish u could customize all the buttons that way.
If you want to type a period or other puncuation, simply touch and hold the ".?123" key then slide your finger to the desired button. When you've selected the punctuation, the keyboard automatically changes back to the normal character entry mode.
Double tapping the arrow (caps key) on the keyboard highlights it in blue and leaves the CAPSLOCK on.
texting/sms, if you double tap the space bar, it will put a full spot after your last word and cue you a space to start your next sentence.
These two need to be enabled under Settings->General->Keyboard first tho.
When typing text you can hold and slide your finger over that line you get a magnifying glass to with a cursor to edit the text in the middle.
If you want accents on your letters (é,è,à,ë,ê,ù...) just keep pressing the letter you want an accent on. Doesn't work on all letters though
Hold down the .com key for 1 second when entering a web address to get .org, .net, and .edu.
This also works with the period key when entering email an address
Discovered this purely by accident: on the number keypad, pressing Call will bring up the last number you manually dialled.
When you receive an incoming call, use either volume buttons to mute the ringer.
power button does the same - one click while the phone is ringing will silence the ringer while allowing the incoming call to continue. Two clicks will reject the call.
You can turn repeat alert notifications of SMS at settings> Messages
When the phone is locked, You can easily access iPpod controls by Double Tapping the home button twice really quickly.
When unlocked, while playing a song, you can double tap home to bring up iPod controls at any time.
This is very important as we all know it, so for the love of cute animals and all things cuddly, people please stop telling it to us.
when you're in the now playing screen on your ipod, if you tap the screen, a track meter pops up, which makes it easier to navigate thru a song. instead of having to hold the Rewind and Fast Forward buttons to get to a specific point of a song, you just drag the knob to wherever you want. You can also slide your finger vertically to adjust the scrubbing rate. This goes from high speed scrubbing to fine scrubbing.
I have found myself cupping my hand on the bottom of the phone to redirect sound while I am watching a video. That will redirect the sound towards me. It makes a big difference in the perceived volume.
(Splurd: This is common sense... no?)
if you poke your iphone speakers with a needle it makes the speakers about 40% louder
(While I dont know about iPhones, this works on humans too. I notice a significantly louder response when poking them with a needle)
You can delete videos the same way you delete emails: slide to the left/right, and click Delete This applies to emails and SMS and god knows what else.
if you tap and hold on an image in safari for a few seconds, a bar will pop up allowing you to save the image. Saved images are saved in the camera roll.
If you want to fall asleep to music, but have it shut off you can use the Clock/Timer to turn off the music after your desired minutes are up. All you have to do is play your music music, then go to the Clock/Timer app, set up your desired length of time, then touch where it says "When Timer Ends" select "Sleep iPod", hit set and then touch start. You could also use it to play musical chairs but the shortest time is 1 min.
(Splurd: I didnt get this to work...)

*only applicable if you sleep with a care bear under your pillow.
When your iPhone battery is completely dead (won't turn on anymore or have the battery sign showing)
Place in Microwave for 5 seconds and it will recharge for about 3-4 minutes of use =)
5 - 10 minutes if you sprinkle a little salt on it first!

your earphones may or may not save your ipod/iphone from going to hell if your reflexes react and grab the earphones in time

Holding down the home button whilst in a frozen application will force quit it.

If you don't know the meaning of a word in iBooks, highlight the word and a menu pops up. Click dictionary

As I said last time you posted a link to that site - the information is incomplete and will lead to people losing their JB / Unlock.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
