Getting Started 
Set up your own Wi-Fi network. If you have an unconfigured AirPort base station turned on 
and within range, you can use iPhone to set it up. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi and look for “Set up an 
AirPort base station.” Tap your base station and the Setup Assistant will do the rest.
Manage an AirPort network. If iPhone is connected to an AirPort base station, go to Settings > 
Wi-Fi, tap   next to the network name, then tap Manage this Network. If you haven’t yet 
downloaded AirPort Utility, tap OK to open the App Store and download it.
Connect to the Internet
iPhone connects to the Internet whenever necessary, using a Wi-Fi connection (if available) or 
your carrier’s cellular network. For information about connecting to a Wi-Fi network, see 
, above.
When an app needs to use the Internet, iPhone does the following, in order:
Connects over the most recently used available Wi-Fi network
Shows a list of Wi-Fi networks in range, and connects using the one you choose
Connects over the cellular data network, if available
Note:  If a Wi-Fi connection to the Internet isn’t available, apps and services may transfer data 
over your carrier’s cellular network, which may result in additional fees. Contact your carrier 
for information about your cellular data plan rates. To manage cellular data usage, see 
 on page 157.
Set up mail and other accounts
iPhone works with iCloud, Microsoft Exchange, and many of the most popular Internet-based 
mail, contacts, and calendar service providers. 
You can set up a free iCloud account when you first set up iPhone, or later in Settings. See 
 on page 17.
Set up an account. Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account. If you’re setting up 
an iCloud account, you can also do that in Settings > iCloud.
You can add contacts using an LDAP or CardDAV account, if your company or organization 
supports it. See 
 on page 115.
You can add calendars using a CalDAV calendar account, and you can subscribe to iCalendar (.ics) 
calendars or import them from Mail. See 
 on page 71.
Apple ID
An Apple ID is the login you use for just about everything you do with Apple, including using 
iCloud to store your content, downloading apps from the App Store, and buying songs, movies, 
and TV shows from the iTunes Store. 
You need only one Apple ID for everything you do with Apple. If you have an Apple ID, use it 
when you first set up iPhone, and whenever you need to sign in to use an Apple service. If you 
don’t already have an Apple ID, you can create one when you’re asked to sign in. 
Create an Apple ID. Go to Settings > iTunes & App Stores and tap Sign In. (If you’re already 
signed in and want to create another Apple ID, first tap your Apple ID, then tap Sign Out.)
