    Will Apple ever allow users to use their iphones to store files? Create folders, drag & drop etc? Or is there a 3rd party app that can be used (without) having to jailbreak the phone.

    Probably not. They used to on earlier iPod models and now disk mode seems to be non-existent without using 3rd party apps.

    there is a free third party app that will let you do this called airsharing. it basically can connect to your phone over a wifi connection and allow you to transfer files.

    As mentioned before App store apps like 'Flash drive' and Airshare pro do this legally and for less than $5.

    I didn't know you could do it illegally.

    I got the impression they were saying sharepod was illegal. I've dled it but haven't tried it yet. Someone on here suggested it and it looked pretty awesome.

    My guess on Apple's reason not enable it is just to avoid user confusion.

    Since the iPod Touch and iPhone are able to view PDFs, read e-mails, movies, and everything else, users might think dropping a PDF onto their disk-enabled iPhone would be viewable on the device itself.

    But I don't know, it's the only real reason I could think of. And I know there is a counter-argument about iPod Nanos and disk-mode but I'm just saiyng.
