Joining to learn what I can about my new phone. I'm essentially a Mac and Apple product fan and have had iPhones since they came out. I've just now 'crossed over' and have even yet to activate it. I charging it. I saw a post earlier asking if it's necessary to charge the phone before using it. Some said no, but the Instruction book say 'yes'. I'll be reading and posting as I need to ask questions or learn something new. Thanks for being here to help us 'newbies'.
