    Now that's a useful suggestion. The only reason I miss MMS is that I have to login to the o2 website to see them. If I could have them straight into my e-mail that would be better for everyone involved.

    Why couldn't you send a vid in an email? As long as it conforms to the size requirements of the email provider it should be possible.

    I am getting antsy in the pantsy where is my 2.1? I am even willing to live with a non-jailbroken iphone just to hear if there are actually any new features, or even if they make the thing JUST WORK that would be nice

    Background push will be godly though. If they can really increase my battery life on my 3g to the point where i can actually turn on 3g ever and not have a dead phone in 6 hours...that would be nice.

    it will NEVER happen.

    as for bluetooth audio, still a mystery...
    Ya i was talking about sending and receiving files. I dont really send/receive music files via bluetooth, but I would prefer if i at least could recieve pictures, documents etc. Then there's also Bluetooth Edge/3G modem functionality. Thank god somebody is working on an Iphone tunnel suite which will allow this

    Do you really trying to say that you know data plans of every carrier in the world that currently sell iPhones? Then again, I will honestly tell you that e-mail is NOT always free and often is MORE expensive then MMS.

    And more topic-related: any word on the firmware yet?
    honestly, go into your local phone shop - you will find more phones with e-mail support than phones without.

    also, people with sericcsons and nokias have no need for e-mail, because the carrier offers MMS etc. how much simpler and better would it be if everyone uses e-mail?

    also, i am not 100% sure on this, but dont you need some sort of GPRS/EDGE or 3G connection to send an MMS? so the charge you are paying to send MMS is based on the data usage to send the message + carrier charge for sending it in their format? whereas, if (like with my countries iphone tariff) you have unlimited internet, you can send/recieve multimedia messages all day long for a grand total of 0.00, and they can be any size you wish, and they get synced to your online e-mail account so getting them on your mac/pc if you wish is seamless, and no quality is lost?

    this is what apple wants, and its what apple wants to change. before the iphone, look at the phones we had. look at the phones that are coming out now, xperia x1, htc android phone etc. iphone has revolutionized the mobile phone, im sure they can revolutionize the way we send multimedia mesages.

    i understand its dependant on the carrier, but i cant see google pushing MMS as far with android as they would do e-mail? so the 2 brightest prospects for the future: iphone os x and android, both pushing e-mail.

    best advice is to embrace e-mail and next time someone says, "you can't recieve MMS? lol" (we have all had it), just say "OMG you haven't set e-mail up with your phone yet? lol"

    as for the firmware, it is worthless to me until the dev-team pwn itunes 8 and firmware 2.1 half of me hopes it sucks, half hopes its amazing.

With E-Mail, I'm sure that they could charge the same, but there would probably be a huge backlash, considering how E-Mail has been free forever.

    This is what happens though with technology. A company will drop support for 'tried and true feature' in favor of newer tech. There will then be a group of whiners who can't live without said old featuer. Eventually, they stop ******** when they realize that their tech is not going to be supported no matter how much they whine and that it is outdated, retarded and completely useless (I kid, I kid!)
    couldn't have put it better!
