Yes, I didn't mention that one because I found it particularly difficult to do 
that gesture for quite a while after having my phone so thought maybe it was 
best left for the moment.

I now can do it perfectly OK but don't need to use it much.

0" 
0" When you say user manual, do you mean the official manuals
0" produced by 
0" Apple?  If so, take a click over to
0" www.apple.com/accessibility, there's 
0" lots of resources including accessible tagged copies of

0" Just to add to what Ibrahim has said, the home button can
0" be
0" found on the
0" front of the device at the bottom of the screen and in the
0" middle.  The
0" On/off button is on the top right on the thin area at the
0" top as opposed to
0" the front top.
