Before you can use iPhone, you must set it up in iTunes. During setup, you can create
an iTunes Store account or specify an existing account to enable purchases with
iPhone. (The iTunes Store may not be available in all countries or regions.) iTunes also
records the serial number of your iPhone in case you need it.
Set up iPhone:
1 Download and install the latest version of iTunes from www.itunes.com/download.
2 Connect iPhone to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the cable that came
with iPhone.
3 Follow the onscreen instructions.
In the Set Up Your iPhone screen, select “Automatically sync contacts, calendars and
DQQMOCTMU¦VQEQP°IWTGVJQUGKVGOUVQU[PECWVQOCVKECNN[YJGP[QWEQPPGEVK2JQPG
to your computer. You can also customize your sync settings in iTunes. See “Syncing
with iTunes” on page 54.
Note: If you have a visual impairment, VoiceOver (iPhone 3GS or later) can help you
set up iPhone without a sighted assistant. VoiceOver describes aloud what appears on
the screen, so you can use iPhone without seeing it. When you connect iPhone to your
computer, iTunes detects whether you’re using a compatible screen reader on your
computer, such as VoiceOver (Mac) or GW Micro Window-Eyes (PC), and automatically
enables VoiceOver on iPhone. A sighted user can also enable VoiceOver on iPhone
using Accessibility settings. See “VoiceOver” on page 212. VoiceOver may not be
available in all languages.
Disconnecting iPhone from Your Computer
You can disconnect iPhone from your computer at any time. However, if you
disconnect it while a sync is in progress, some data may not get synced until the next
time you connect iPhone to your computer.
When iPhone is syncing with your computer, iPhone shows “Sync in Progress.” If you
FKUEQPPGEVK2JQPGDGHQTGKV°PKUJGUU[PEKPIUQOGFCVCOC[PQVIGVVTCPUHGTTGF9JGP
the sync is complete, iTunes shows “iPhone sync is complete.”

Connecting to the Internet
iPhone connects to the Internet whenever you use Mail, Safari, YouTube, Stocks, Maps,
Weather, the App Store, or the iTunes Store.
How iPhone Connects to the Internet
iPhone connects to the Internet using either a Wi-Fi network or a cellular data network.
iPhone does the following, in order, until connected:
 Connects over the last Wi-Fi
network you used that’s available.
 If no previously used Wi-Fi networks are available, iPhone shows a list of Wi-Fi
networks in range. Tap a network and, if necessary, enter the password to join.
Networks that require a password show the lock icon next to them. You can
prevent iPhone from automatically showing available networks. See “Wi-Fi” on
page 157.
 If no Wi-Fi networks are available or you choose not to join any, iPhone connects to
the Internet over a cellular data network ( , , or ). You can prevent iPhone from
using cellular data in Settings. See “Network” on page 161.
If no Wi-Fi networks are available and a cellular data network isn’t available, iPhone
cannot connect to the Internet.
Note: If you don’t have a 3G connection, you cannot use the Internet over a cellular
data network when you’re on a call. You must have a Wi-Fi connection to use Internet
applications while also talking on the phone.
Many Wi-Fi networks can be used free of charge including, in some countries or
regions, Wi-Fi hotspots provided by your iPhone carrier. Some Wi-Fi networks require
a fee. To join a Wi-Fi network at a hotspot where charges apply, you can usually open
Safari to see a webpage that allows you to sign up for service.
Joining a Wi-Fi Network
The Wi-Fi settings let you turn on Wi-Fi and join Wi-Fi networks.
Turn on Wi-Fi: Choose Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on.
Join a Wi-Fi network: Choose Settings > Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPhone detects
networks in range, then select a network (fees may apply to join some Wi-Fi networks).
If necessary, enter a password and tap Join (networks that require a password appear
with a lock icon).
22
Chapter 2 Getting Started
Once you join a Wi-Fi network manually, iPhone automatically connects to it whenever
the network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, iPhone
joins the one last used.
When iPhone is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi
icon in the status bar at the
top of the screen shows the connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger
the connection.
(QTKPHQTOCVKQPCDQWVEQP°IWTKPI9K(KUGVVKPIUUGG¥Wi-Fi” on page 157.
Cellular Data Network Access
3G, EDGE, and GPRS allow Internet connectivity over the cellular network available
through your iPhone carrier’s wireless service. Check the carrier’s network coverage in
your area for availability.
You can tell iPhone is connected to the Internet via the cellular data network if you see
the 3G ( ), EDGE ( ), or GPRS ( ) icon in the status bar at the top of the screen.
Note: If you don’t have a 3G connection, you may not be able to receive calls while
iPhone is actively transferring data over a cellular network—downloading a webpage,
for example. Incoming calls then go directly to voicemail.
Turn 3G on: In Settings, choose General > Network and tap Enable 3G.
If you’re outside your carrier’s network, you may be able to access the Internet through
another carrier. To enable email, web browsing, and other data services whenever
possible, turn Data Roaming on.
Turn Data Roaming on: In Settings, choose General > Network and turn Data
Roaming on.
Important: Roaming charges may apply. To avoid data roaming charges, make sure

About Syncing
Syncing copies information from your computer or online account to iPhone, then
keeps the information “in sync” by copying changes made in one location to the other.
You use iTunes on your computer to sync:
 contacts, calendars, browser bookmarks, and notes
 iPhone applications
 ringtones
 music, movies, and other iTunes content
 photos and videos
By default, syncing occurs whenever you connect iPhone to your computer.
;QWECPCNUQEQP°IWTGK2JQPGVQCEEGUUCEEQWPVUYKVJQPNKPGUGTXKEGRTQXKFGTUUWEJCU
MobileMe, Microsoft Exchange, Google, Yahoo!, and others. Your information on those
services is synced “over-the-air.”
Syncing Accounts
MobileMe, Microsoft Exchange, Google, Yahoo!, and other online service providers
sync information—which might include contacts, calendars, browser bookmarks, and
notes—via your Internet connection (“over-the-air”), so that you don’t have to connect
iPhone to your computer. The Internet connection can be over your cellular network or
your local Wi-Fi network.
Some service providers—including MobileMe and Microsoft Exchange—“push”
information updates. This means that syncing happens whenever any information is
changed. The Push setting in Fetch New Data must be turned on. (It’s on by default.)
For iPhone 3G users, iPhone must also be awake or connected to your computer or
a power adapter. Other providers sync by periodically “fetching” changes that have
occurred. Use the Fetch setting to determine how frequently this happens. See “Fetch
New Data” on page 170.
For information about setting up accounts on iPhone, see “Adding Mail, Contacts, and
Calendar Accounts” on page 25.

Syncing with iTunes
You can set iTunes to sync any or all of the following:
 Contacts—names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and more
 Calendars—appointments and events
 Email account settings
 Webpage bookmarks
 Notes
 Ringtones
 Music
 Photos and videos (in your computer’s photo application or folder)
 iTunes U collections
 Podcasts
 Books and audiobooks
 Movies, TV shows, and music videos
 Applications downloaded from the iTunes Store
You can adjust sync settings whenever iPhone is connected to your computer.
Ringtones, music, audiobooks, podcasts, books, iTunes U collections, videos, and
applications are synced from your iTunes library. If you don’t already have content in
iTunes, the iTunes Store (may not be available in all countries or regions) makes it easy
to preview content and download it to iTunes. You can also add music to your iTunes
library from your CDs. To learn about iTunes and the iTunes Store, open iTunes and
choose Help > iTunes Help.
Contacts, calendars, notes, and webpage bookmarks are synced with applications
on your computer, as described in the following section. Contacts and calendars are
synced both ways between your computer and iPhone. New entries or changes you
make on iPhone are synced to your computer, and vice versa. Notes and webpage
bookmarks are also synced both ways. Photos and videos can be synced from an
application or from a folder.
Email account settings are synced only from your computer’s email application to

Note: You can also set up email accounts directly on iPhone. See “Adding Mail,
Contacts, and Calendar Accounts.”
Purchases you make on iPhone in the iTunes Store or the App Store are synced back to
your iTunes library. You can also purchase or download content and applications from
the iTunes Store on your computer, and then sync them to iPhone.

doesn’t exist. When you sync voice memos to iTunes, they remain in the Voice Memos
application until you delete them. If you delete a voice memo on iPhone, it isn’t
deleted from the Voice Memos playlist in iTunes. However, if you delete a voice memo
from iTunes, it is deleted from iPhone the next time you sync with iTunes.
You can sync the iTunes Voice Memos playlist to the iPod application on iPhone using
the Music pane in iTunes.

Move the insertion point: Use the rotor to choose whether you want to move the
insertion point by character, by word, or by line. By default, VoiceOver moves the
insertion point character-by-character.
Flick up or down to move the insertion point forward or backward in the text.
VoiceOver makes a sound when the insertion point moves, and speaks the character
that the insertion point moves across.
When moving the insertion point by word, VoiceOver speaks each word as you
move across it. When moving forward, the insertion point is placed at the end of
the traversed word, before the space or punctuation that follows it. When moving
backward, the insertion point is placed the end of the word preceding the traversed
word, before the space or punctuation that follows it. To move the insertion point
past the punctuation at the end of a word or sentence, use the rotor to switch back to
character mode.
When moving the insertion point by line, VoiceOver speaks each line as you move
across it. When moving forward, the insertion point is placed at the beginning of the
next line (except when you reach the last line of a paragraph, when the insertion point
is moved to the end of the line just spoken). When moving backward, the insertion
point is placed at the beginning of the line that’s spoken.
Delete a character: Select the Delete
key, then double-tap or split-tap. You must
do this even when touch typing. To delete multiple characters, touch and hold the

Backing Up iPhone
iTunes creates backups of settings, downloaded applications and data, and other
information on iPhone. You can use a backup to restore these items to your iPhone
after a software restore or to transfer the information to another iPhone. See “Updating
and Restoring iPhone Software” on page 229.
227
Backing up iPhone or restoring from a backup is not the same as syncing content
and other items (such as music, podcasts, ringtones, photos, videos, and applications
that you download via iTunes) with your iTunes library. Backups include settings,
downloaded applications and data, and other information that resides on iPhone.
When you restore iPhone, you also need to sync again to get your music, videos,
photos, applications, and other content back on iPhone. See “Restoring from a
Backup” on page 230.
Applications downloaded from the App Store are backed up the next time you sync
with iTunes. Afterwards, only application data is backed up when you sync with iTunes.
Creating a Backup
iTunes creates a backup of iPhone when you:
 Sync with iTunes
