    I just traded in my Blackberry Bold for an IPhone 5. The best part is that it is paid for by the company I work for and has unlimited data and all.
    I would love some tips and tricks for a newbie.
    I do have a couple quick questions.
    Can someone reccomend a flashlight?
    How can you put icons in a folder?
    What are the must have utility apps?
    Can the phone be used as a wifi hotspots?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

    12 icons in a folder.
    To put them in a folder just hold an icon until it goes into "jiggly" mode and then drag it on top of another to create the folder. To add additional apps to the folder just drag on top of it.
    Using as a wifi hotspot would depend on your carrier and plan. But yes the phone supports it.

    I like this flashlight app. Check out all the options. You have to touch anywhere on the screen other than a button to access the options.
    Flashlight. for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    I didn't know you could put 16 apps in a folder on an iPhone 5either. Good to know, I might have to go rearrange some of my folders now.

    Due to the taller screen you can put another row of apps in a folder compared to 3/3g/3gs/4/4s.

    With regards to the folder: I wish when you'd open an app from a folder the folder would automatically close. If it did I'd use them...
