    This are my requests:

    1.- A way to HIGHLIGHT, COPY and PASTE text
    2.- Add MULTIPLE PHOTO ATTACHMENTS to e-mail messages
    3.- LANDSCAPE mode for email's keyboard & text messages

    Those are the most important for me at the moment.

    those are all very good points, and should be implemented, I forgot to put those in my iphone feedback. but heres what i came up with

    1. Application Development - I know that with all the people that have bought the iPhone, there are tons out there who would love to create and develop applications for the iPhone. I know that currently they can create programs through Safari, but that is just too slow, and does not provide for the great apps that could be achived if the app was created for the iPhone operating system. I really hope that this is possible. Everyone is begging for it on the various forums.

    2. Delete Multiple Mail Messages - I love the mail, and how it works with every web service that I have tried, but when people have a lot of messages, deleting individually is a pain. A multiple delete would be great.

    3. Mark all as Read - This would be great for people who get a lot of messages daily, or for those who create a new mail account, and the iPhone downloads the messages, and has all of them marked as unread, even if they are already marked as read on the server.

    3. Texting Picture Messages - Currently this is something that I am yearning for. I just got a phone with a camera, and I would love to be able to send Multimedia Messages, but this is currently unavailable. I hope this will be implemented soon.

    4. Emailing Pictures - The email works fine right now, but I think that it would be easier for people if they could start writing a new email, and then attach the picture from the message, instead of having to go to the picture, and say email this picture.

    5. Backgound Image in Home View - We can set a background image, but we rarely see it. Lots of people would love it if we could set the background image to the Home View.

    6. Flash for Safari - I know you have probably heard a lot of people talk about this, so I wont say much about it, just that it would be great if it was implemented in Safari.

    360deg rotation in Safari...antenna at the top is good for reception.

    We may not have GPS, but hacking Maps to work with the phone's built in locator would be sweet.

    Battery status detail (percentage) in both the OS and the charging screen.

    Sync your computer's spam filter.

    Purchase songs directly to phone

    Delete media directly from phone

    Better accuracy in weather widget

    Stumbler feature

    Move period to abc keyboard

    Tap sequence to open a link in a new page

    Sperate Mail check settings for wifi and edge

    Font size setting for Bookmarks

    Consistent use of swipe right and press delete.

    Saving photos from an email to your photo library.

    A shuffle-style auto fill, just choose your data size and iTunes randomly loads that amount of music.

    ummm...think thats it for now.

    I think multiple attachments via EDGE is a mistake. So make the phone smart enough to only allow multiple attachments when using WiFi

    I would like to see flash. Wait let me rephrase that, I would love to see flash!!! Also picture texting and I know this isn't really a software update but I would like ear phones that had a voice activated microphone on it so I would be able to take calls without pulling my phone out. Right know that Is all I can think of but if somehow they could implement flash into an update that would make the iPhone even more perfect.

    What about the no brainers they forgot to include like :
    copy paste, bluetooth DUN, OBEX, A2DP,

    IMAP IDLE support for push mail from non proprietary sources. For the uninitiated this should only add less than 10 lines of code to the mail app.

    Better cam support include video for gods sake.

    Would also be nice to connect to an external GPS via bluetooth solves the lack of built in support and isn't to difficult given the stack is already in place.

    Opening up real developer access not this stupid web 2.0 stuff.

    What problem are you having with iCal? The only problem I know of is selecting a destination in iTunes doesn't stick.

    Or you could just not send multiple attachments when on EDGE. Just enable multiple attachments and have us be clever enough to know when not to send them.

    You know you can just squeeze the microphone on the iPhone earbud cord to answer a call when it comes in, right?
