iphone-4-ios4-screen-orientation-lockThe guys at posted an excellent list of what I consider to be the top 20 iOS4 and iPhone 4 tips and tricks. A few of these functions I did not know existed. I realize that good ol Steve Jobs announced that there would be about 150 new features offered with the iPhone 4. Not to mention users of older iPhones such as the iPhone 3GS running iOS4 will get many of these features as well.

Some of the best tips in’s list include the ability to lock the screen orientation, watching live TV via TVCatchup and turning on SMS Character Count. I found these three tips and trick to be most helpful for me. The reception tip is something I attempted to do but I saw no difference in using Apple’s $30 bumper case/protector. Still waiting for that so-called antenna fix Apple!
