    Hello All,
    First post, but spent time lurking through all the pre order, shipment and arrival excitement...

    I love my new iphone, but would love to hear and share things about it that might get overlooked or are just assumed to be known about the device. I am coming from a BB like many of us here. I hope others might benefit from a thread like this...

    So my first question is, my tour was totally customizable where sounds are concerned. My phone rang/had text alerts for about 5 contacts... for anyone/everything else, the phone was silent most of the time (I'm a teacher). Is the iphone capable of this type customization?

    Happy First Official Day with Your iPhone and happy sharing!

    You can have custom tones for sms / phone contacts that you set up through the address book but its my understanding you can only save a 30 second clip from any song in your itunes to be a ringtone and there is no way to make a custom text or email tone.

    There's also no way to set up lots of ringing profiles like there is on BB.

    Ok, so you can set up custom tones for individual sms and phone contacts? Or just custom tones for sms messages in general?

    The one area the iPhone still falls down in, is sms tones. They are limited, and without jailbreaking there is no way to do any customization.

    Does anyone know of a good profile app. One that automatically set the phone to vibrate during specific times, say 7-3:30 while at work, and puts it on silent during times in the middle of the night?

    Why not just flip the switch while at work

    Doesn't the VZW iPhone have the switch on the side to toggle between vibrate and sound?

    Exactly......while apps are great an all, you definitely dont need an app for everything you want to accomplish.

    With a stock iPhone you can't do this. Only through jailbreaking.

    Got the new Verizon iPhone 4 yesterday. Loving it! Yesterday, while I still had my Blackberry, I was able to go onto verizon account and block unwanted calls for free. As soon as I activated the iPhone, the call block feature disappeared.

    How do you block calls on a Verizon iPhone 4?

    If you tap and hold any of the app icons, they will start to vibrate. Then, you can tap-hold-and-drag them anywhere you want. of course, you can also delete them by tapping on the X. And, if you drop one on to another, your create a folder that will hold both. Once the folder is created, you can, of course, dump other apps into it.
