How about a thread on little things that might help out using the iPhone that may not be obvious.

I know I really like being able to delete email by just swiping left to right on the email in the list and up pops a delete key on the right. that way i don't have to open the email to actually delete it.

15" 2.4ghz MacBook Pro C2D, 4gb RAM, 23" ACD, Mac OS X (10.4.10), iPhone 8gb

    If you're in camera mode and you change the phone from tall to landscape, the picture is taken in landscape

    That's a good one, i didn't even think of that.

    Any others yet?

    If you select a photo for a contact from the iPhone, the selected photo is shown full screen for the caller ID.

    If a contacts photo is transferred with the contact's info from the Address Book, the contact's photo is shown as a thumbnail (just like with the commercials) for the caller ID.

    cool. i guess you could make a photo album of just your contacts, then sync that photo folder, then you could assign them from there to get fullscreen

    The trick David Pogue mentions for entering a period (hold down the punctuation key and then slide to the period and release) will allow you to enter anything on the non-alpha keyboard and return to the alpha keyboard in one swipe.

    The phone shows up in iPhoto (turn off in image capture)
    You can use 'Camera is not Apple iPhone' in a smart playlist.

    A contacts picture folder is good, I added a wallpaper one.

    Keeping the favorites screen open allows you to unlock the screen then dial with three motions.

    The home button can be used to access unlocking instead of sleep wake

    Better put your tips on an independent web page. A thread here with no post for 15 minutes will be off the page because of the volume of activity.

    I think I read this tip on here, but it's buried already.

    In Safari, when you've scrolled down to the bottom of a page, and you want to go back to the top- just tap on the top bar of the phone (where "AT&T" and the time are) and the page jumps right back up to the beginning.

    To use the CAPS LOCK feature, make sure it is enabled in the General Settings. To use it, simply double-tap on the shift key. The shift key will turn blue.

    And if you don't like the small size of the contact pictures brought in from Address Book, all you have to do is edit the contact and click on the photo to "edit" it. I originally thought you had to resize the picture a little for the change to take, but all you have to do is open the edit window and save! The small image will then be full-screen for the next call.

    • Safari doesn't provide scroll bars for text area form fields and scrollable areas in a text page. An example of this is the field I'm using to type this message in. Dragging a single finger on the page scrolls the page. If you want to scroll one of the areas I just described, use two fingers.

    • Holding down on a link shows the link's URL.

    I just discovered something I haven't seen elsewhere. Double clicking with 2 fingers zooms out; like in google maps or in safari.
