    Lots of people have iPhone, but many of us still have difficulties putting music, videos and other resources onto iPhone. I have been using my iPhone for quite a long time, and some tips below are what I have learned to put everything I can on my iPhone.

    1. Put DVD movies on iPhone
    2. Put video files on iPhone
    3. Upload images to iPhone
    4. Read PDF document on iPhone
    5. Play games on iPhone
    6. Watch YouTube videos on iPhone
    7. Watch Google video on iPhone
    8. Listen to limewire music on iPhone

    1. Put DVD movies on iPhone

    I have a huge collection of DVD movies. And I always put a few movies on my iPhone to kill time while travelling. As we know, DVD movies cannot be transferred to iPhone via iTunes, so I have to find a converter to do that. I have used a few converters like Handbrake and the one I am using now is Wondershare DVD to iPhone Converter. It is not free, but not expensive either. Not like handbrake, it can convert the encrypted DVDs, and it does a good job on the final quality and conversion speed. And if I don’t want to put a whole movie, I can just convert part of a movie onto my iPhone with this app. My OS is Windows, so I use the Windows version. If you are using Mac OS, I have noticed that they have a Mac DVD to iPhone converter that you can try, which I don’t know if is as good because I don’t have Mac OS.

    2. Put video files on iPhone

    We must have many video files that taken by the DV, which usually are not in format accepted by iPhone. So we need to find a video converter to convert them into MP4 format. Here I recommend Super to you. It can convert video files to any video formats you want. You just need to import the video and set the parameters according to the iPhone video specification.
    Tip: you need to right-click on it to do further operations.

    iPhone video specifications:
    H.264 video, up to 1.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; H.264 video, up to 768 Kbps, 320 by 240 pixels, 30 frames per second, Baseline Profile up to Level 1.3 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats.

    3. Upload images to iPhone

    Assemble your iPhone wallpapers in a folder. And connect it with your computer. In iTunes (PC or Mac) do the following:
    Click the Photos tab and select "Sync photos from:”
    From the pop-up menu, do the following:
    Choose the iPhone wallpapers folder, or whichever folder you have saved the wallpapers too.
    You can then choose "All photos," or choose "Selected folders" or "Selected albums" and choose the folders or albums you want to sync.
    Then from your iPhone go to: Settings --> Wallpaper --> Photo Library and then choose which wallpaper you would like to set. That’s it!

    4. Read PDF/MS office document on iPhone

    Many people are confused about how to put PDF/MS office document on iPhone. In fact, it is so easy, as long as you get an email account. Email the files as attachment on your computer to your email account and retrieve it on iPhone, and you can read it anywhere.

    5. Play games on iPhone

    In order to play games on iPhone, you need to install an emulator firstly. The game emulator does require that you have already Jailbroken your device, but once you do, the installation is a breeze. First you install the emulator, then you add the games of your choice. Most of Nintendo games run excellent on iPhone, but not all; some games work badly on iPhone.

    6. Watch YouTube video on iPhone

    You need to download Youtube videos to your iPhone if you have a bad edge network. Youtube videos are in FLV formats, so I use a free online FLV converter to do the conversion:

    Firstly, go to Youtube and open the page of the video you want to put on your iPhone. Copy the URL of this page.

    Secondly, go to vixy.net : Online FLV Converter : Download online videos direct to PC / iPod / PSP. It's free! , paste the copied URL into the URL field of this web page, and select “MP4 for iPod/PSP” from the “Converts to” drop-down list. Then click “Start” below this list to start the conversion. See the highlighted areas below:

    Finally, after the conversion, this website will provide a download link for you to download the converted MP4 file. When you see the link, you can just download the final file from the link, save the downloaded MP4 file on your computer and use iTunes to sync it on to your iPhone.

    7. Watch Google video on iPhone

    Because Google allows you to download most videos from their site in an iPhone compatible format, all you need to do is download that version of the video. To do this, pull up Google Video and search for a video as you normally would. When you actually get to the video, you're not going to see much. To play the video, click the little select list on the right and select "Video iPod/Sony PSP" and press "Done". Press download and the video will come up shortly. Simple, right?

    8. Put music from Limewire to iPhone

    Limewire is a download tool I assume lots of us use. I often use it to download free music and put them on my iPhone. If you don’t have Limewire, you can download it from its official website. Search and download songs from Limewire. You may get songs in all sorts of formats, but not all formats are supported by iPhone. Usually I select three formats: MP3, AAC and M4A formats that are supported by iPhone and can be directly transferred to iPhone using iTunes. For the detailed specs info, you can visit Apple - iPhone - Tech Specs. After you download the songs, then you can just transfer the songs to your iPhone from iTunes.
    Tip: iTunes will convert wma songs to iPhone compatible format automatically.

    The above is my experience with converting and transferring files from various sources to my iPhone, and I hope it can shed some light.

    Word is that Flash support is on its way to the iPhone and it should be coming very, very soon.
    And by then, YouTube won’t have had to convert a bunch of their catalog to H.264 in order for the service to be enjoyed on the iPhone.

    I got it, take your iPhone back and exchange it for a Tilt, then install Slide to Unlock (S2U2), Ultimate Launch, and then finish it off with some iPhone icons and skins... I've seen Tilts that people setup just like iPhones, except these are better because there's a lot more applications you can run, and you have 3G...

    Im waiting for it to come down in price. I debated buying the 8525 as the GPS is not real important for me as I have a remote garmin for my laptop, but I also have a BT GPS Ant that works good.

    I have read the 8525 is slightly faster OS wise but doesnt have the memory expandability of the TILT. I do like the iphone app for the TILT.

    Im waiting to see what the next iphone is as the current one to me is only cool looking.
