iPhone hints, tips, tricks!

The first post will be updated as more and more people reply with some good tips and tricks that you may not know.



to take a screenshot:hold the home button (that square button on the bottom of your phone) and press the top right power button. the screen will flash white, your screenshot is now in your camera photos, you can email or mms it.

To disable I-tunes opening up every time you connect your Iphone - press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and under processes close down "Ituneshelper". I would also delete the opening of this process from the registry. If you want a very easy way to see which programs open automatically in your registry, clean out temporary files and other crap, and fix registry errors, this program is amazingly awesome and 100% freeware. http://www.ccleaner.com/


To record video on your 2G/3G -
so yeah... Iphones not named 3GS can't even record video, (weaksauce).

But there are ways to do it. currently the best program (that I know of) is called Cycorder, It is free (yay!). Just open Cydia and search for "Cycorder" and install, you're good to go. Here's the FAQ on it. http://cydia.saurik.com/info/cycorder/questions.html

You will have to SSH (see [How To] Jailbreak Your iPhone. (5.1.1)) to get the video to your computer for now. The FAQ shows you where the file is stored.

Re: iPhone hints, tips, tricks!

I found this HOW TO maximize your battery life on an Ipad, Ipod or Iphone and thought this is the perfect place!

  • Keep Your iDevice Out of the Sun
  • Reduce the Screen Brightness
  • Make Sure the Screen Locks Quickly
  • Use Airplane Mode When You Donít Need Internet (iPad/iPhone)
  • Use Wi-Fi Instead of 3G if Possible
  • Reduce or Eliminate Mail & Calendar Checking
  • Reduce or Eliminate Push Notifications
  • Reduce or Eliminate System Sounds
  • Disable Location Services
  • Disable Bluetooth If You Donít Need It
  • Disable Vibrate Feature in Games
  • Charge and Discharge Your Battery Regularly
Some of these are common sense and you may already know this information. This is for those who don't!

Doing all of these will take the fun out of the phone imo. I would just disable the ones stated that you aren't using at all. To find more details click the link here.

Number 4 is bad advice, do not put your iphone in airplane mode or else you won't get any phone calls. Maybe the ipod and ipad its ok, but never on the iphone.
