    I'm very happy with what I see thus far of iPhone 4 and iOS4 but am disappointed about two missing features:

    1. A (more) useful unlock screen
    2. Google Navigation (and Latitude)

    Any chance that these can still show up when the new device/OS ships or would developers have seen this in the iOS4 GM that is now out?

    I kinda wish they made a quick on/off button for wifi, on like the top menu bar. Then you can easily switch it on if your ready for a FaceTime chat, instead of backing out to the menu, settings, wifi, on, click home, return to call.

    I think the new lock screen will be in iOS5. I doubt we ever seen another Google application built into the iPhone.

    Hopefully, along with the new lockscreen, iOS5 brings a new notification system. Then I'll have nothing to complain about....

    This oversight is unforgivable since it seems so simple. Apple needs to include automatic syncing of the "things to do" from iCal to the Calendar app.

    Blame google. Google decided to compete against Apple in the mobile phone industry and stop upgrading google maps in the iPhone. Google becomes so rude just because they are competing with someone. :eek:

    Doesn't the google app include latitude, or are you talking about latitude being directly written into the OS?

    Yeah lock info and quick reply messaging are deffinatly needed. You know what else is needed? A forward and back button for the frigging keyboard that doesn't erase what you've written. There have been so many times that i've tried to get the cursor in between 2 letters, or words or something, and it's sometimes a pain in the @$$. If you can't have a trackball, I guess it's the next best thing.
