Comments about oreilly iPhone: The Missing Manual, 4th Edition:

There's lots of neat stuff, but my Verizon iPhone seems to have some differences, so that the book doesn't necessarily help on all points.I was hoping for a Verizon update here.

      For us techno "not-so-much" folks, this book is superb.
      It's written clearly, concisely and with humor. Thank you so much, David Pough, you've made my iPhone usable to it's potential

        Good reference book on how to. Came out in Aug 2010. Disappointed that CD not available yet (Jan 2011) at [...] like it says on back page of book. Should have been available back in Aug 2010.Still a good book full of how to's.

          My wife used Second Edition with her iPhone 3G; now we are both using with our iPhone 4's. Makes learning curve much faster and easier. I should have also ordered Ebook version; doing so today. Well worth the extra price.
