    A feature I would love to see in iOS 6 or the new iPhone is when your phone is off or dead, once it's powered back on, you get a notification that someone has tried to call during the time that it was off. Who's with me?

    Or, even a feature that would list the people in your contact list that thought about calling you but didn't.

    This is most likely a limitation of the network and not the phone. Plus, to have the phone ping the network after power restart is kind of a waste of battery life.

    Furthermore, nowadays people will just iMessage or leave a voicemail if the call is important enough.

    Voicemail should still pick up, even if the phone is turned off. I figure if it's important, they'll leave a message so I can call them back.

    Simple, great things like this will never come to pass unfortunately.

    Sounds like a network issue instead of an iPhone issue.

    I usually get a text from my carrier notifying me who tried to call me if my phone was off or not in a service zone

    GV does this.

    ^ This. The OS and apps can only do so much.
