Thanks!
I just bought the regular Apple wall charger and use the Griffin iTrip for the car.

What do you mean by "the left side of the message"? Are you using the mail client (program) on the iPhone or are you using webmail?

Love to help. Send more info.

It depends what set up you're using. I know for sure that you can use iTunes to sync your contacts to iCal on a Mac or to Outlook on a PC. If you have MobileMe, you can do it over the air and not through iTunes, definitely to a Mac and theoretically to a PC as well.

There may be other ways to do this with a PC, but I'm not sure what they are. Does anyone else know if you can sync iPhone contacts with the default Windows address book?

I figured it out! I'm not sure what I was doing wrong, but when I got back in, I could see the whole message. So far everything else is going ok. Can't wait to get home to load my apps & music. I've set it down just long enough to take pictures of DD in the band, now I'm back at it! This is going to be so addictive!

Just got the 3GS. Tell what I can do now that I couldn't do before, besides the obvious video camera stuff.

Oh no.....Not off to a good start

Everything was going great...Loaded my music, loaded my apps, had everything set up just right, and was using it like a pro. I used my iPhone this morning with no problem, and then a couple hours later, it had "no service" at the top. So, I reset it, and still no service. Took out the sim card and put it back in, still no service. I called our AT&T store, and he wanted me to bring it back in. I took it to the nearest AT&T store where I bought it yesterday, which is an hour away from my house. They couldn't get it to work either, and they said that I'd have to take it to the big AT&T store in Cincinnati...Another hour drive. So, I gave my best-sad eyes, and they exchanged it for me with another new iPhone. The sales guy couldn't have been any nicer about it. I brought it home, and everything's re-loaded...Again. Ugh! I do have one question - My iPhone #1 had "3G" at the top and was really quick in the internet. The iPhone #2 has "E" at the top and is a bit slower. I'm in my house, so I'm not anywhere different for different reception. I've tried toggling the airplane mode so it searches for reception, but it's staying in the "E" mode. Any ideas from my very distinguished experts?

E is for edge. This usually means that you do not have 3G service where you are or under the settings it is possible to turn 3G off. I believe its under Settings -> General -> Network

I'm wondering if there was nothing wrong with the other phone. Since you aren't picking up 3G but only Edge (Edge is the slower of the two internet connections), I question whether AT&T is having problems with the service. I've seen that happen with my iPhone and if I wait a while, it all comes back.

Try going outside to see if 3G comes back.

Regardless, you have a new phone and you are now a pro at loading software.

Thank you for the instructions. Tried it & still have the E. I work in the city, so I'll see if I have the 3G when I get to work tomorrow.

The AT&T sales guy couldn't get it to work, even with a new Sim card. The new phone is working great this afternoon, and everything is re-loaded. I guess now I just need to take a deep breath and enjoy it!

Thanks for your advice!

For those in the UK I have just downloaded a useful, free app - thetrainline.
Handy for booking those trips. I especially like that you can download a week's timetable of your favourite journey

Ok, your 3gs will be faster, have a compass, and possibly have bigger capacity, but other than that there's not a lot more you can do with it.
I won't be upgrading to a 3gs from my 3g, will be waiting til the next incarnation even tho I'm due an upgrade in January, I'll just wait it out
