Hi everyone, i just got my iphone (3g) yesterday -- i can tell i am gonna have some fun with this!! LOL

Can someone clarify for me -- can i just purchase apps from the iphone itself and download them via the phone, or do i have to attach the phone to my computer and sync it for each app. i want??

Also, for those that have the regular 3g, how long does your battery last approx? If you are using it alot during the day?

You can do it either way. There is a 10 meg limit on app downloads over the 3g connection but it does not apply if your iphone is using a wifi connection.

I just banished Stocks & Weather to the last page. They seem to be un-delete-able

I use the weather one all the time. I put in the cities I'm in everyday. But how do you move the icons? I didn't know you could do that.

I use the Weather.com app, so I don't use the one that came w/ the iPhone. You can do the multiple city thing w/ it, too. Love that! It's fun to check in on Orlando weather some times.

To move your icons around, there's 2 ways:
1. Hold down one icon. All icons should jiggle and you'll see "X" in the upper left corner of any app you can delete. While the icons are jiggling, you can drag them around the screen to move them.
2. Use iTunes. Plug up your phone & go to the Applications tab. On there, you can drag & drop icons on the different screens and arrange them.

Can someone answer me on the battery life thing? How long do you find that your battery on the 3g lasts?? I noticed mine dropping, today, and not sure if it's due to me playing with it or just that i didn't charge it enough (fully) - how long does it take to charge fully?

Generally, the more you "play" with the phone, the more battery life you'll use especially if you are "playing" with the internet or the GPS function. If you have "push" turned on in your e-mail settings, your battery life will be eaten up faster than a dole whip at a Disboards meet.

I charge my 3G once a day and keep a charging cord in my vehicle and in my briefcase.

You might also look for a discussion on battery life in this thread as some others had good tips about conserving battery life. Several folks addressed how long it takes to charge the battery. I never have noticed as I set mine to charge overnight.

Thanks! I'll go fiddle with it and see what I can do.

Last week I updated my iphone and the next thing, I have no apps on my phone.
Well Karen(klamchowder) and another diser were very helpful in helping me with this.
I am ever so greatful to all of you.
Also I bought a bright orange skin for my iphone, as it got lost in my purse and I could not find it.
Took me 3 days to find my phone.
So I went right away and bought a bright skin for it.

Metro Bus Arrival Times for DC

The Maps application that comes with the iPhone will track city buses in certain cites so that you can tell when the next bus will arrive at your location. I used this feature in Seattle and the native iPhone map worked better than an application I bought.

I'll be in D.C. for meetings and was wondering whether the Metro buses have been integrated into the maps application.

iPhone at the parks

I don't post often here but I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to keep the iPhone safe at the parks. I'd like to have it on hand with me just in case my brother and I encounter long lines and also to check out the Toy Story Mania bonus I had heard about. I do have a pocket within my purse that should keep it safe from any wet rides if we do go on those. We'll be going from the 23rd through the 29th. Thanks for any feedback!

I would put it in a plastic ziplock baggie before going on wet rides. I do this my camera and phone. Just to be safe. My son spilled a glass of water on his itouch and it still works (luckily!) but I wouldn't take chances.
