Bluetooth A2DP was a huge gripe for two years and it took them that long to implement a feature that other crappy phones could do years ago. That's inexcusable, and Apple ignored it until the complaints came to a fever pitch and they got dinged by reviewers for it. Still to this day the iPhone has a very dumbed down bluetooth capability. I can't understand why anyone would do this, it costs them no money to stick the profiles in their OS. So what's the deal?
I agree you should do your research before buying anything to make sure it fits your needs, but after a few years of ignoring user requests about updating to features that are very old and widespread gets old. I didn't know the iPhone had such crippled bluetooth until I actually tried it and found out it does streaming audio and handsfree. That's it. Jailbreak additions don't work. So why can't Apple include this, or MMS on the 2g iPhone? That's a huge slap in the face to the 2g crowd. It's doable but Apple would rather you spend more money on things that should 'just work'.
It's actually kind of sad to see people so fervently defend a company and it's CEO that doesn't care one single bit about the average user of their products. There are a few other gripes, but like he said they can be solved by jailbreak sometimes. I just want a better battery and bluetooth that has an actual use. That so hard to do? Not like Apple isn't raking in billions in profit these days.

I have never had an issue with any iPhone I have ever owned. Now that being said, I make a living off of people breaking their iPhones or them failing on their own out of warranty. So, Whatever you're doing Apple, keep it up!

Hmmm i realy don't know what is wrong with iPhone :-)
My 3G is quite OK .. and i am satisfied with it ... I am aware of tons of crap i must doo to JBreak and unlock it because here in Bosnia we do not have AT&T ( 10x God 4 that hehe ) but after i done all that my phone is way in front of everything on the market right now !
I have 11 springboard screen 6 by 5 full of icons ( approx 240 aplications including Cydia stuff ) and i removed tons of apple launch daemons from startup sequence ... my battery life is OK if u consider my little child play 3D games ( gameloft ) for about 1 hours @ day ... it can stand up to 3.5 days of normal usage and 8 days if i use only weather app and few phonecalls.
BTW my screen brightnes is on 20% PUSH are OFF and EDGE and GPRS OFF most of the day ( i stay away of 3G because it drains battery like hell and is stupid to use when i have WiFi ).
Bluetooth are working, multitasking too ... MMS i use every few hours ... soo what is wrong with you ppl ... take your time RTFM ... read stuff on web customize your phone ... use other ppl knowledge ( especialy good application like SBSettings, LazyPanda, Cydia repos, Kirikae, 3G unrestrictor, Backgrounder etc etc ) it will make your day !!!

Apple are liars, when the first iPhone came out they said it's FIVE years ahead of any phone so I don't see why it can't officially do MMS or Video or even have ALL general Bluetooth capabilities, I'd really like them to answer that question, I still can't go to a different phone after using the iPhone, the HTC HD2 however I can
I am an Apple fanboy ever since this year due to my first Mac, my MBP which I love and a 3GS and various iPods which will be soon hitting eBay!!

I don't know that I'd compare the iPhone fanboys to people suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, but some of their defenses can be pretty damn funny. I remember before Apple added MMS people on this site defending the lack of MMS by saying that MMS was an outdated technology that was on its way out, and as soon as Apple added it everyone was in love with MMS again.
Just one example.
Now don't get me wrong I loved my 3g, I love my 3gs even more, and I look forward to Apple adding more features down the line, but loving something without being able to see its faults begins to border on obsession.

This is BS

I've met more people than not who have an iPhone and really only use it calling. I've met more people than not who have an iPhone and love it, but they really can't tell me why. I've known more people than not that want an iPhone, but can't afford it. And there are days that I'm on my iPhone more than my computer.
This is a paradigm shift for everyone who grew up in the '50s and '60s when the **** Tracy wrist phones and Star Trek Tricorders were fantasy. I really don't think Jobs knew what was coming, either. It appears to have overwhelmed everyone and new lessons are being learned.

What's funny is that this is just a slow news day bs post and it has had some of the longest, most heated comments I have come across on here before lol
I'm really excited for what the new iPhone is going to feature with all the recent competition from the htc phones and of course the droid. I hope apple doesn't let us down, apple fan ppl deserve the best of the best. Remember, the first step is to admit you are a fan boy...

This is not like I give a ****! I wouldn't care if it doesn't have a removable battery or other features. Yeah, the iPhone has some cons. But, is this going to change iPhone users with this report? If you want a battery-changeable iPhone, go to Europe then (if there is one). Until then, stop complaining and just wait.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

the only other thing i would like is to be able to delete pics not in your camera roll and songs without having to sync to your computer.

The iPhone has it's faults and if a replaceable battery and BT are important to you then don't buy one.
There is no such thing as a 'perfect' phone but, for me, the iPhone is pretty close.
When something better comes along I will have no hesitation in jumping ship but I have a feeling thet the next phone I get will be the next iPhone...

Fanboy !??? hmmm I dont know am I one of them , 17" MBP , new MB , waiting for the 24" Mac , iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS .
Whats wrong with those guys ?? talking about the buletooth ? one thing I know why there is no BT with iPhone coz all about iTune is the copyright , if iphone can sending file like other phone there will be big lost on iTune , Apple is just protecting there own product whats wrong with it ?? if Apple cant make any money , dont think the 4th iPhone will be as good as now .
I read feedback before I buy iPhone and is what i want and I can live w/o the BT issue , and the iPhone still is the sexiest Phone out there .
Oh !! S*** !!I've been kidnapped and am suffering from Stockholm syndrome! .... lmao!!!Apple a Day , PC away

and if im not mistaken they did atleast make the battery where it doesnt have to be soldered anymore.

I would say it's in reverse, the only people that don't care for the iphone are apple-haters or those that cannot adjust to a virtual keyboard. It's the number 1 selling phone on the planet, so it's a stupid argument to say that people are delusional. Sure it has shortcomings, every phone does, but the overall experience is unlike other phones, and that's what sells.Really?
