I tune by intervals. I've been a musician long enough to recognize thirds and fourths when I hear them, so I just play the strings together and tune them by fixing each interval until it's perfect. It works on tuning the guitar to specific chords as well.

yah, the phone thing is true. try it out.

edit: i told you guys wrong. it's more like an F not an F#. i can't remember where i read about it. it was on some guitar site or something giving tips about tuning if you're in a pinch for some reason.

i actually just held my phone up to the mic on my electronic tuner. it was close to an F but not exact.

One way to do it is to play the 12th fret harmonic on the B string against the 7th fret harmonic on the E (1st) string. I presume the 6th would also work.
