I'll give a few

Don't drop the phone. The physical button takes you to the homepage. To press on something, move your finger to the desired location on the screen and tap it gently.

This person has had an iPod Touch, I'm sure they know how to use it in that way.

My Take:

I'm not sure what your lifestyle is like so I can't really recommend any apps for ya.

I can give some tips: Although the iPhone has awesome battery time, you might wanna disable bluetooth, disable as many push notifications as possible, disable wifi when not needed, and control brightness based on your environment (ex outside turn it up, when indoors...lower it to about 25%) to save battery time. Pretty standard stuff.

Also, you should watch some Apple keynotes on iOS so you can learn some awesome functions the device has...EX: the iOS 5 keynote shows you the notification center, double cick the home button when on the lock screen to get fast access to the camera, rich text editing in email(pretty sure i saw this one), some features are a little hidden.

**heh heh...would write more...but I'm in phsyc class.

To quickly switch between apps just double tap on the home button. You can run certain apps in the background like VoIP and radio apps. Also you should close unneeded running apps when you're done with them to conserve battery.
