    This is not a wishlist, this is a direct order, no discussions, DO IT!

    - Free form Widgets on the homescreen.

    - Notifications - Steal HTC Desire HD's Android notification idea, combine notifications with the multitasking switcher and player controls.

    Like this:

    - Integrate SIP support - VOIP SIP integrated fully into the system.

    - REAL multitasking switch - Like backgrounder, allow us to switch which apps we want to fully multitask, let the default stay the same i.e. save state multitasking.

    - Alarm - Add a configurable snooze function.

    - DivX/XviD/MKV Support.

    - Ability to change SMS and E-mail tones.

    - Full Bluetooth support - Sending files, contacts, syncing, etc...

    - Wifi Direct support.

    - Free turn by turn navigation with an ability to download maps(right from the phone like on Nokia N8) to use them offline.

    Be done with this by June, or else!

    Can't say that I am too interested in any of that
    Better notifications... yes, but what you propose... not really


    I'll take my chances with what Apple comes up with

    Apple doesn't care what you think. Don't like it? Buy a droid.

    +3... I agree with Mac and Juice, better notifications, but I can do without the rest of it.

    I just want to be able to use my own SMS tones, without jailbreak. Don't understand why they won't allow this when we can already make our own ring tones??

    As long as someone can still find an exploit to jailbreak, i'll be happy :p

    I just want better notifications since there's no led indicator light anywhere on the phone. It seems even that's too much to ask for...

    I'm all for a new notifications system and customizable SMS tones, but a big NO to those widgets. Am I the only who things those can be incredibly cheesy?

    Like I wrote, if you don't want to use them you'll have the option not to. But for those who like them, there should be an option.

    Better notifications would be nice... but I'd hope they'd look better than the image in the first post! Seriously, Android needs some polish.

    Sounds like you should buy an Android device and stop complaining. Apple will iterate its platform in ways that will benefit its core competency: the majority of its users. That doesn't include the niche desires of power users that negatively impact the overall usability and intuitive nature of iOS.

    I'm sure a revamped notification system is coming, but I doubt it will be anything like the example you have provided.

    Apple doesn't care what their customers think? That would be pretty bad business, no?

    I still get confused by some people.

    They say in general, "I want this iPhone to be just like that other phone". Well, why don't they just go get that other phone?

    Or they'll say "if the iPhone doesn't have this feature next time, I'm going to/back to this other phone".

    Again, why don't they just go get that other phone?

    Or are they just the type of people that aren't happy they have the world in their pocket, and feel a massive desire to complain and aren't happy unless they're doing so?

    Like I've always said, if you don't like whats on the TV...change the channel and stop your complaining. There are worse things in life. Be happy with what you have, and if you're not then go get what makes you happy. Complaining just makes you sound weak and pathetic.

    I'd have to agree with the notification system, however it sounds like you want to turn iOS 5 into Android. Get an android device.

    I don't think integrated VOIP is coming anytime soon either. Carriers would have a big problem subsidizing a phone with a VOIP option. Just say no to widgets.

    Better notifications, yes, that will be nice. Widgets - not so much

    I actualy like the current notification system. I wouldent mind the option to be able to just have a little icon pop up on the top instead of inturipying me. But after all this time it doesnt bother me. I'd rather tap an icon and the same message u would normally get would then pop. Something like that idk, I just don't care to much on the matter

    Because they just want a couple of features from the other phone, in general the iPhone suits them better?
    Maybe they didn't realise how much they needed said feature, and can't afford to just buy a new phone just now?
    No set of features can possibly meet every individuals requirements. Is it wrong to discuss how one's preferred supplier could move closer though? I think you are being a little harsh here! :D

    The only thing I actually want on this list is better notifications. And now that Apple (most likely) have purcashed boxcar I think they'll make something much better than that HTC-crap you posted.

    I'd jump on VOIP SIP support in a heartbeat. I had a Blackberry 8900 on Cincinnati Bell (I think T-Mobile also has this feature) and it proved great in areas of low signal coverage such as my house.

    Oddly, I had experience with AT&T before I became an iPhone customer because CinciBell jumps on AT&T's network when you venture out of Southwest Ohio. I would think that the carriers would wholeheartedly support this because it could take a huge amount of strain off of their cellular network. It would also make customers incredibly happy.

    BTW, if I'm thinking SIP is something different, the concept that I'm referring to is cellular tower to wifi switching. Sort of like the microcell, but in the phone itself. CincyBell called it UMA mode.
