If you just got your new 3G iPhone and you are a little overwhelmed at all the different things you can do like talking on the phone while you are watching a video or playing a game or all the other multitasking you can do, don’t fret. It’s really not all that tough to do. Just follow the instructions below and you should be OK with your new mobile device.
To make a call with your new phone just simply tap on the phone icon, that’s the green box with a white phone in the middle. You also can check the range through the status icon to see if you can make the call from where you currently are. The range will be indicated by multiple bars on the icon. If you have a lot of bars you shouldn’t have any trouble making a call. If there are just a few bars showing then you might have a little bit of a delay.
You can now pick your numeric keypad and this is the icon that looks like 9 little square buttons you find on a phone. Just tap in the number that you want to call and then tap on the word Call. You can also go to your Favorites icon and you can access all of the numbers you call the most as well as your Contacts icon where you can add all of your phone numbers you want to keep on your iPhone. And don’t forget you can tap on Recent Calls and you can return any calls that you might have missed.
If you tap on your Settings button you can then tap on General, Network and Enable 3G. This will turn on your 3G access for your network when you don’t have any Internet connection available otherwise. When you are surfing the Internet on your phone and you want to make a phone call at the same time this 3G feature comes in really handy.
If you want to be able access your email and web browsing you will go to your Settings and then tap on General and then go and tap on Network and after that you will pick Data Roaming On. This will allow you to access these things with ease.
It’s very simple to charge your iPhone you just take the USB cable and plug it into your iPhone port and then put the other end of the USB into the port on your computer. Don’t forget though to have your computer on when you do this or it’s just going to zap your phone of the rest of it’s battery power.
To send a text message, which is something you probably really want to do, you just tap on the Plus sign and then pick from your contacts list and simply type in the message that you want to send. When you are done you just click on the word Send. If the person you want to send a message to isn’t in your contact list at the time you just tap on the pen sign and then type in their number and then the message that you want to send them and click Send.
Note: If you want to avoid paying for extra fees then you should turn off your data roaming when you are not using the Internet.
