Hi what does the arrow icon mean on the iPhone and what is portrait orientation?

It means that your iphone won't turn pages if you turn your mobile. So portrait stays portrait and landscape stays landscape. You can enter or exit this mode by tapping the home button twice, and scroll the icons to the left. The portrait orientation arrow icon will show/disappear in the menu bar.

The iPad has a special button for this, but it is said that with the upcoming iOS 4.2 the button functions as a mute button. But I haven't updated yet.

how can you get 3g on the ipod touch4 without jailbreak
john 13 yr ago x
@melo Assuming you are not referring to 3G as in third generation iPod, but 3G as in mobile wireless communication: this is not possible on an iPod Touch 4, because there is no slot to insert a sim card.

However, if you have an iPhone 4, or another mobile device that can broadcast a wifi signal, you can connect your iPod Touch to the internet that way.

How do I save battery on my iPhone 3GS?
john 13 yr ago x
@Jane there are no real guidelines for this, but a few my tips:

- never leave an app running while your iphone goes to sleep/standby. this goes for safari as well.
- restart/reboot once in a while, this will get rid of poorly programmed apps/games that you recently started, so they won't reside in the memory anymore (until you start them again). the problem is you don't know which apps are "bad".
- there are games that cause excessive battery drain, don't play them (games with a lot of movement etc.)
