Save game manager like the PSP has. Anyone? Anyone? Why has Apple not given us this? I don't really care anymore, because Chronus does all that and more... but really?

    What about "Top Sites" feature in Safari? It doesn't have to automatically update like in OSX... but that would be nice. Opera does it... although Opera is buggy and doesn't work half the time... that's not the point.

    The new greenpois0n jailbreak will work on all releases as it's exploiting a hardware hole. Once they finalize it for 4.1, the jailbreak for major releases will be a lot quicker as they would only need to modify the software payload and not have to start over all together.

    Why would anyone want to use an ipod song for text messaging...hmm why not? I mean other platforms have been doing it for years. What a silly @ss question to ask. And obviously it would not play for the duration of the song, it would play a portion of it by default or however the user wants it to play by configuration.

I'll bet $10 that the SMS tines you can set for each person will either be the same six that we already have, which will be awesome having 60 contacts to assign them to, OR they will be nice enough to sell them to you through iTunes. iOS development is moving way too slow, all of this should've been there in iOS 3 at the latest. Won't rely on Apple for anything useful, I'll stick to buying functionality from jailbreak devs. They actually care and think their apps and tweaks through.
    yeahh i was thinking the same thing. Same default sms tones for all the contacts you may have. Or they could give you 6 or whatever more quantity of default sms tones for them.

    Isn't there an article on the main page about this?

    Are you SURE ringtones will work with Messages? I just see the electronic sound listed. Will ringtones really finally be global? That was the main reason I jailbroke, so I could use ToneFXs and control my alert sounds.

    Yep, it's a great app. The iPhone really needs to have those abilities built in. Think about business users with confidential emails. They are screwed if the lose their phone.

    Shatter when released well work on all sm for life. It will require a change in the hardware to defeat. That's how I understand it at least.

    What's up with Bluetooth? I really want the ability to Bluetooth images,songs, files etc. I'm really into pictures and I have a photo printer that detects other devices through Bluetooth. Both iBluetooth & iBluenova haven't been updated for a while.

    Just to clarify, the custom tones in 4.2 are just that. Tones. Not entire ringtones. Apple has chosen to Do these custom text tones separate from ringtones.

    I'm sure via jailbreak that can be changed.

    That's the thing though, I and probably many others have no interest in that. Are we going to be able to make our own? Unless we can make any tone we want and any number we want it's a worthless feature. We've had 3 hardware changes and 4 os versions and every iPhone owner has the same text tones. I can't understand why Apple didn't make this a feature of the OS from the beginning. Thanks for the heads up!

    Safari will also have the ability to find text within a webpage and cycle trough the results, which is handy features when there is a ton of text on such a small screen.
    Oh, Yes! I use this feature all the time when surfing the web, and I spent a good deal of frustrating time, just last night, reading a bunch of cr*ppy websites looking for one word. I'm surprised it took them this long to implement this.
