iOS5 Missing Essential Features Related To FaceTime/iMessages
Now that the GM has released, a major feature that I feel is essential to iMessages, and FaceTime (now that it goes by e-mail) is still missing. The ability to block users who spam you, or guessed your e-mail and keep messaging/calling.
Say you are rather well known online (ie: President Obama) and you have an iPhone. You decide to use an e-mail address that everyone either knows or can easily guess as your account on these services. (ie: [email protected]) Now too many of your legimate friends, coworkers, etc... know this address for you to easily switch it. Total strangers, stalkers, crazed fans, angry citizens, etc... now FaceTime you, and iMessage you all the time now. How would you put a stop to it? There is no way to do it. I think the following features must be added:
A) Add/remove users from a block list for each of the 2 services I mentioned. (Lists are exclusive from each other)
B) Have the option to in addition to option A block users that are not added to your contacts list.
I feel this is essential for both keeping your phone from going off constantly, and for maintaining your privacy/sanity. Imagine being a semi-public figure in your town, company, etc... and having your e-mail address guessed. You'd have to turn the service off, and go without it just due to these missing features.-FBIRyuJin

True! Even a black list for calls and texts would be welcomed...because you don't need to be famous. For example ex-girlfriends can be very annoying

Upgrading from JB 4.3.3 to iOS5 was the worst idea. Nothing compares to iPhone after jailbreak. No easy way to restore either. DO NOT UPGRADE IT SUCKS
