    Default Got my new IPhone 4S-32 -- Now what???

    So as a lifetime BlackBerry and PC guy who knows nothing about Apple products, I picked up my new iPhone 4S 32 gb. I really think this thing is great, but I don't really know how to use it, other than making phone calls and getting email.

    So what cool apps should I get, especially track-related ones? Thanks.

    Now get a case before you break it... The first one you break is on them, but after that you're out of a lot of dough. Guess how I know..

    I know it's hard and all at first since it's so sleek to touch, but after you've owned it for a bit and got over that, definitely get a case. This is the one I have:: Speck PixelSkin HD iPhone 4 Case Review | Geeky Gadgets

    Good advice. They tried to upsell me a case, car charger, and some plastic film to put over the screen, but I turned them down.

    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    You don't need a screen protector, just a good case.

    You can load a police radio scanner. It comes in handy in heavy traffic to know what is going on and how to get around it. Or know about speed traps sometimes in advance.
    Emergency Radio I think it is called.

    you used to be able to get Max Q data for data logging but I think it is out of business now.

    Good Luck with it.

    They finally released one of the best iPad apps, Flipboard, for the iPhone today. Recommend checking it out.
