The Guide For iPhone Beginners!!!

Sometimes simple and obvious things are difficult to accomplish.Recently, I’ve been getting numerous e-mails from our readers to post beginner tips for iPhone users. So, here we go.

Beginner Tip #1 – How to Rename Your iPhone: It turns out that renaming your iPhone is very easy but this functionality is not apparent and visible immediately. Simply, start iTunes and double-click your phone in the DEVICES area. Most people right click the phone and then expect to see the rename command in the shortcut menu. It is a bit disappointing that we don’t see a command to rename the phone in the short-cut menu. But again, double clicking does the job.

Beginner Tip #2 – How to Arrange iPhone Icons:

  1. Tap and hold your finger on any of the icons until they start shaking. Don’t panic, there’s nothing wrong with your phone (well, I was really scared when the icons started shaking as I had no idea what was going on with them, really funny).
  2. Now you can simply drag the icons and place them anywhere you want them. You have complete freedom in re-arranging them.
  3. When you are happy with the organization of your icons, press the iPhone Home button to save your changes.

Beginner Tip #3 – How to Make Screenshots on iPhone: I assume that you’ve already opened an application that you’d like to make a screenshot of.

Now, simply press and hold the Home button (shall I mention that this a button at center bottom of the iPhone?), then press and release the Sleep/Wake button (the one on top right of the iPhone).
Your iPhone will flash briefly and the screenshot will be added to your camera roll.
You can now open the Photo application and view the screenshot there.

Beginner Tip #4 – How to Bring Your Voicemail Button to Life: Do you have an unlocked iPhone? Then your Voicemail button must be totally useless, right? This little hack will bring your Voicemail button to life.The first step is to find out the voicemail number of your cellular provider. For example, I have to dial 311 to access my voicemail. Usually, your provider will have this information on their website.

Once you have found out your voicemail number, click the iPhone’s Phone icon.
Now switch to the keypad by touching the Keypad tab.Then type the following code: *5005*86*xxxx#, where xxxx is the voicemail number that you found out in the first step. In my case, the code was *5005*86*311#.
Finally, touch the Call button.In a moment your iPhone’s voicemail button will be brought to life. Now touch the Voicemail button and your iPhone will dial your voicemail number.

Tip #5 – How to Add an Extension to a Contact’s Phone Number: The process is straightforward and easy. Just make sure to follow the step by step instructions given below.

  1. Create a new contact or go to an existing one.
  2. Edit the contact’s phone number.
  3. Move the cursor to the end of the phone number and tap + * # at the bottom left of the keyboard.
  4. Tap “pause”, which will add a space and a coma after the phone number.
  5. Enter the extension and hit “Save”.

That’s it. Now every time you call this number, you will be directed to the contact’s extension.
