If you've ever received a photo on your iPhone via text or email that you wanted to save or share, you'll be glad to know saving the image to your camera roll or copying and pasting it into a new email is quick and easy.
Home button or Sleep/Wake button not working properly? (Maybe you had some kind of iPhone misfortune involving water or a drop?) You're probably planning to take your phone in to get fixed; but in the mean time, Assistive Touch is a great work around to this problem:

Your iPhone automatically locks itself after a set period of inactivity. This saves battery life, makes unauthorized access to your iPhone less likely, and prevents butt dialing and the sending of nonsense text messages to random contacts.
