The iPhone 3GS is arguably the most popular phone for 2009. It's the phone that every would love to own.

However, there are a few things that you need to know if you want to get the best out of your iPhone. You need to know about the tips on the new iPhone 3GS because they will teach you useful shortcuts and cool tricks. There may also be some useful information on how to make your batteries last longer.

I see no point in delaying this any longer so let's proceed with the list of tips and tricks.

tips on the new iPhone 3GS

Taking a screen shot: Simply hold the iPhone's "home" button, then hit the "power/sleep" button. The screen will flash for a brief moment and the current screen contents will be saved to the Camera Roll.

Turn Off Vibrate in Games: You don't really need vibrate to enjoy most of the games so turn it off to extend battery life.

Text Messaging For Free: Try FreeMMS. This is available for only $1 app from the App Store. It's really worth it because it allows users to send unlimited text messages--even picture messages--with out any charge.

Closing an Frozen App: Buggy apps are common even on the new iPhone. To forcibly quit a frozen app, simply press the Home button for at least six seconds.

Minimize use of 3D programs: three dimensional technology is cool but it drains a lot of power so use programs that use it sparingly to get more out of your battery.

Use Auto Lock: This useful feature allows one to save power because it automatically piuts the handset in sleep mode after a a certain amount of time. Go to Settings -> General -> Auto-Lock to enable this feature.

These are just a few of the tips on the new iPhone 3GS. Do a bit of research on the web to find some more.
