Thread: Things you don't like about your iPhone

  1. #81
    All of the things everyone else listed are things that need fixed or updated but here is one that I didn't see anyone mention, it almost makes me want to return the phone but I am just hoping they make this "feature" optional in the future instead of totally disregarding my privacy.

    PLEASE APPLE GIVE US THE OPTION TO TURN OFF THE $@##$@% SMS PREVIEW!!!!!!!!!

    Myself as well as many people I know use texting to carry on PRIVATE conversations but with the iphone, it lets the world know when you recieve a new text messege. Not only does it say who the messege is from, it even displays the messege on the screen for everyone to see without even picking up the phone. Garbage.

    I got burned on day one when someone asked to see my phone and I gave it to them, sure enough I get a text while it's in there hands and it was a text from a certain someone that would just die if they knew someone else read it. I have to turn my phone face down now on my desk at work for fear of receiving a special messege and someone just walking by and reading what it is and who it's from without even picking up the phone.

    Thats what I HATE about the phone,

    I just registered and this is a cool site btw

    My gripes:

    Mail:

    * I can't select just a subset of my many folders to have on the phone. My Blackberry could do that.
    * IMAP sub-folders are not automatically checked for new messages - you have to click on the folder before it will check. This is a real pain for those of us who use server-side filtering. Thunderbird can do this.
    * I can't mark all messages as read.
    * I can't select multiple, or all, messages for deletion.
    * It won't automatically check for new messages more often than every 15 minutes. Makes holding real-time email discussions cumbersome. One minute between checks would be useful.
    * Can't use keyboard in landscape mode.
    * No BCC:
    * No Reply-To:
    * No per-account signature - only a global one that may not be appropriate for all accounts.

    To-Do:

    * Doesn't sync from my Mac.

    Wireless:

    * It wouldn't connect to my wpa/wpa2 network until I removed the period from my PSK (that everything *else* in the house was perfectly happy with).

    Safari:

    * No Java
    * No Flash
    * Can't sync bookmarks from Firefox
    * Frequently crashes.

    General:

    * No cut, copy and paste

    Hardware/Google Maps:

    * No real GPS ability. I have an external bluetooth GPS receiver that I use with TomTom softwarre on my Palm T3. If someone could write an app for the iPhone, like the TomTom software, so it could use the external receiver, the phone could have true GPS functionality. That would be awesome.

    Misc.:

    * The system froze up on my once, and had to be reset to recover. I haven't been able to repeat it however.
    * No MMS
    * No IM capability

    Sounds:

    * What frigging part of "SILENT" don't they understand? I went to a play a few days ago and switched the phone to silent via the side switch. In the middle of the play, my 9:00 PM alarm to remind me to take my medication went off at full volume, disturbing everyone in the theater and almost disrupting the play. I was horrified, embarrassed and very, very pissed. I checked the manual when I got home and apparently silent means "almost silent" as alarms are allowed to sound, in silent mode, by design. Assholes.

    Speakerphone:

    * Everyone I talk to on it begs me to take them off of speakerphone, because they hear an echo of themselves about 3 seconds after they say anything. It's horrible.

    No custom ring tones what the hell is up with that?

    I hate the fact that anytime I put someone on speaker phone they are telling me they hear an echo what the hell is up with that ?

    So no one else would like for the contacts birthday to show up in the calendar and would like for it to be able to alert you of that certain person's birthday?

    I figured there would be at least one or two more people that fell the same as I do...

    - Typing.
    I am a fast typer on a PC, and on qwerty keypads. And on the iphone i feel like i am learning how to type all over again. 1 fingering it !

    - Call volume
    Both in call and speaker phone sucks. But with the earphones on its ALOT better.

    - Smudgy screen
    I find my self whipping my screen every time i use my phone.
    I might get a screen protector which should help with this a little and also protect it.

    Thats about it,

    Adding to the list:

    No battery percentage meter
    No way to turn off graphics on websites (would make load time faster over EDGE)
    No way to get to contacts from the home screen (not that going into Phone is too difficult)
    No home icon to get to a home page or bookmarks on the Browser; you exit and return to the last page you viewed
    No ability to change the alert tones for SMS, Email, and Voice mail - I like having different sounds for each and even creating a ring tone for each
    <--- I'm new so don't hit me just yet.
