    I don't understand why the volume control only controls the ringer volume. Who want's to quiet the ringer but still have other alerts at full volume?

    Calendar alerts. I want an option to make them like an alarm. I have one event that I want to wake me up in the morning without having to remember to se an alarm.

    Large keyboard only available in Safari.

    Message alerting you that your SMS box is almost full comes up every time you get a new message or goto send a new message when your box is almost full. I'm well aware that it's full now STFU.

    Sending pictures are cropped down.

    And my biggest issue, even when set to not join open wifi networks automatically it still does! WTF? It doesn't find my home wifi network sometimes and instead signs on to my neighbors network. There's no way to remove the networks from the trusted network list like you can in OS X other then going in and editing the plist manually.

    text conversations don't display in the order they were sent/received anymore. ever since 1.1.3 came out, this problem has bugged the crap out of me.

    I do wish we could get the big keyboard for text messaging too.

    all ringtones/message tones/etc were shared throughout the phone (i.e. new text alert can be a ringtone or a ringtone could be a text alert, etc)

    how about the utter lack of any bluetooth capabilities except for headsets? :mad: completely ridiculous since ALL the support is already in the OS X codebase, too.

    I can't tell you how many times I've thought about buying an iPhone, but didn't because of the basic features missing. Hell I was in the apple store for a good 45 minutes just the other day...


    Seriously, I have to wonder if google's Android project is going to come from behind and eat apple's lunch, just because they decided not to implement some of the most basic features that other smart (and dumb) phones have.

    i hate having to unlock the phone just to skip a song in ipod. I wish there was some kind of external button to do this.

    When I use the headphones is pretty sweet to just double click the mic, but I dont use that in my car.

    Skip a song by pressing the Home button twice.

    I just found out that the iPhone syncs multiple iCal calendars to one calendar. Give me a fucking break Apple. Unbelievable.

    It's nice that they're trying to be innovative with this phone, but how can it be innovative if it's missing some basic features? And it took around six months to get some features the phone should've shipped with?

    I'm starting to regret my iPhone purchase.

    You'd rather have MMS over any other features? I don't see how MMS is THAT useful.

    What pisses me off about the iPhone is that I dropped that son of a bitch for the first time ever today and now there is a tiny, baby little scratch on the metal surface and, well, that pisses me off. :mad:

    I'd like to have landscape for texting, mms, and just yesterday edge won't connect to weather/mail/safari in my apartment. Weird, because since day one of owning the phone I've never had that problem.
