Dumb on I phone 4 S

I just got the IPhone 4S and am real dumb using it. I had a droid before so this is real new to me.  How do I get that black and white bar code thingee! I have tried to install the facebook app but the phone dosn't install it.  Am I not turning something on? I use to go to internet explorer to google or what ever but now I don't know how to surf the web?  Any help out there?  Maybe I should just take a class!!!

You can take a class at your local VZW store if you think it will be beneficial to you (which it sounds like it may be). Just check the website for upcoming dates or call your local store for info. If you have an Apple store near by you can also take classes with them (you would need to check the apple site or call the store for details). You can find a great deal of info on the Apple website (www.apple.com/support), including the user manual for your device, support documents and tutorials, and the Apple user forum.

I'm not sure what the black and white bar code thingee is (I assume it's an app you are referring to, but without the actual name it's hard to say) but if i is an app you will find it on the app store. It would help if you knew the name of it though so you can locate it more quickly.

As far as surfing the web on your iPhone, you use safari to do so. Safari should be one of the fixed icons at the bottom your iPhone screen (there are 4) unless you have changed your fixed icons. It will be easy to locate. It's name is Safari and the icon is a blue compass. Click on it and then you can either click on the box at the top left( the larger one) to type a web address or click on the box to the right to type in search keywords (mine currently says "Google" in it prior to me tapping on it to begin typing).

Here is the link to the manual.

Better to take the classes at Apple. They will even teach you stuff about other Apple products. If the Verizon class uses a Apple Rep then it would be a good idea as well.

If the app is over 20mb it won't work without wifi but it does tell u that. Barcode scanner go to the app store and search barcode scanner or QR barcode. Redlazer is a good one.
