    God i KNOW!! wtf.. text would be amzing in landscape!! Come on.. Apple should have thought of that first off.. It is like COMMON SENSE!! It wouldnt even be that hard to implicate on the next update.. Those are my two perks about the phone... mss, and landscape in emails and texts..

    we are our own worst enemies in regards to the iPhone. If we wouldn't have purchased the iPhone until apple fixed & added the basic features a "smartphone/pda" should have from jump. Why do we have to beg for mms & text forwarding? Zoom on camera mode? Voice nav? Until someone uses their iPhone for nav, wrecks & sues apple will we get turn by turn? Is that what it's going to take?

    What else could they use to lure people into ANOTHER iPhone purchase? Not much.

    i really hope that 2.2 isnt just centered around adding googles street view with other minor fixes because seriously...who really cares about street view?

    i thought mms were a givin on the first firmware
    and we're at generation two and apple still hasn't added it yet.

    how hard can it really be? if swirly can pull it off, i think apple can.

    If the Google Car comes to Argentina, for sure, will get hijacked, dismantled, and sold in parts in "Warnes" street... Man, what a country...

    Now seriously...All Nu Navigation stuff seems great, but, as everybody is saying, WTF! Put for once real deals for most of us > Copy/paste, Landscape writing, Native MMS, naming a few.

    Salutte.

    lets get the basics

    What makes iPhone cool?

    - touch interface
    - No Moving keypads to wear out
    - big @$$ screen to actually see what is going on
    - very intuitive touch everything
    - pretty decent phone

    What makes iPhone cool, but annoying.

    - PUSH email doesn't really PUSH or FETCH...
    - Lack of reasonable SMS plan. I just watched somewhere that if you added up the cost per 1meg of messaging it comes out to 1000 dollars per meg...
    - Lack of MMS. I can deal honestly, cause i use my phone as a phone, and not a sidekick.

    What makes the iPhone cool in Steve Job's eyes.

    - Useless but cool features
    - Youtube for instance. My thoughts: Great I have the most advance phone in the world, and i can now watch Numa Numa or Dramatic Rodent, or Chris Crocker on the go... Yippee.

    I want to watch real TV while i am driving. HULU anyone? ATT already has a TV plan for 30 dollars on lesser phones, and we are to believe that we can't get HULU why? Oh yeah, because apple is trying to prove a point by saying that iTunes is better... iTunes doesn't help me when i am not in front of my computer, and even if i was in front of my computer, i sure as bettin' would spend 65 dollars on a season pass for one show.

    - Street View Maps. Wow great. If honestly, who cares? Its not something i would use on a day to day basis. Its not something that most anyone would use on a day to day basis. Its gadget, and a toy, and most importantly, a novelty. It makes it WOW for a few weeks then people realize who cares...

    - The keyboard issue. While i don't mind what is there, I also don't type novels (unlike here) in my emails. It doesn't bother me. However I can see how it bothers many,and considering the growing number of apps that emulate that feature, I find it hard to believe that horizontal typing is really that difficult of a feat.

    But like before, instead of dealing with the real issues, lets just bring out a whole new line of pretty fruity iPods, and no one will notice, care, and most importantly: remember...

    If street views is all 2.2 is offering, then i certainly wont be upgrading until something worthwhile comes along.
    Herp a derp a derp a doooo!

    Apple's ability to implement these features has NOTHING to do with it. The reason we haven't seen cut/copy/paste, and the other stupid sh*t people won't stop whining about is because Apple didn't want to put them in the iPhone software. Why? Nobody knows. But you knew what you were getting when you signed up for your iPhone. And even if you didn't (right...) you had 30 days to return it. Were you too busy playing Tap Tap Revenge?

    As for street view, I for one would use this on a regular basis. It makes maps 10x more useful, because you can see what lane to be in when the highway forks, you can see what your exit actually looks like, you can see where that tiny residential street actually IS, and the list goes on. This would be far more useful for me than any of the other crap people keep whining about. MMS is insignificant to me (and apparently to Apple as well). If it were implemented I would never even touch it. Actually it would probably make me angry, because I would have to pay an extra .05 every time some douche bag sent me an unwanted picture, just because ATT refuses to allow me to disable texting (they love getting .15 out of my pocket every time some stupid person texts me because they are too lazy to pick up the damn phone)

    Anyways, my point is you are accomplishing nothing by continuing to whine about it, Apple is infamous for totally ignoring user concerns about small details like this. All it does is irritate the people who actually appreciate and understand what the iPhone is.

    I have a love and hate relaionship with my 3G but more hate because I now know I should have waited to get the Bold.

    I want MMS, Cut/Copy/Paste, Push to work as they advertised it would, ability to click on a number from a webpage and have option to TEXT not just CALL, Data Storage, and Word/Excel/Powerpoint utilities to create and edit....all of this I could do bar the Push on a phone I had about 4 years ago.

    On a side note will the street view just be for USA users or for all users in the official iPhone countries.
    Very true. Add the features the iPhone lacks rather than add features that barely anyone will use... Apple are stupid and narrow minded sometime...

    It's not that Apple didn't put them in...it's that the iPhone system is based off Mac OS X and the copy and paste system on it is very complex.

    It's good to hear you have 30 days in the States, I was informed in the UK outlet that the normal rturns policy did not apply to the Iphone !! and no I didn't know about half the stuff that was missing / badly implemented.

    It always looks to me like the various parts of the Iphone SW were written by different groups of people that had no common guidance, i.e html emails have no portrait view !!! ....etc.

    Also the people writing the SW had no real knowledge about phone applications but were good at throwing in some other noteworthy feature.

    The Iphone is really a love/hate relationship.

    What the iPhone needs is the ability to use the whole phone in landscape itself, so if you rotate the phone, everything on the screen also rotates no matter which app you have got open or you are on the homescreen.
    It also needs to have the ability to have some shortcut buttons on the lockscreen, C&P DEFINETELY, SMS forwarding and the ability to send files through Bluetooth and to get files on and off without using WiFi, by using USB or Bluetooth.

    No I didn't know that most of these features were missing on the iPhone, I knew MMS was missing but I thought it had all the other features that a normal phone had.

    The new iPhone when released needs to have metal backs again, removeable battery, 32GB memory, louder and 2 speakers and a camera with flash and on the front, iPhone 2G is still better looking than the 3G!
    I mean come on, all 3G phones have a camera for video calling, wtf Apple!
    I bet all these features are will be on the 3rd gen iPhone and hopefully cheaper than the 3G until then I'm sticking with my unlocked 2G.
