Okay, so today I was thinking about how crazy popular the iPhone has gotten... yet it's one of the MOST SERIOUSLY CRIPPLED smartphones ever made. I got to thinking how much I love the iPhone, but deep deep deep down inside I wish it had the features of other phones. I was talking to my brother last night and he still loves his iPhone but he was like... I really mostly just use it as a regular phone lately.... and how come I can't send pictures to someone elses phone and why aren't we allowed to text in landscape mode... it seems so easy for them to add.... why can't you edit the contrast and brightness of your photos? So a few of those things are doable through downloading extra applications from the app store. Some of them cost money and some are free, but then you have all these extra apps you have to launch and clutter up your homescreen with all of these icons to give us BASIC FEATURES? Why can't we have a background color or picture on our home screen? Why can't we change our SMS tone (those 6 tones are really bad) Why can't we text in landscape so that when we're lying down or not sitting perfectly straight we can still hold the phone (it's almost impossible to type with 2 thumbs in that position, because you can't grip the phone with both hands well enough) Where's our promised Push Notifications? I guess I'm secretly embarrassed to have an iPhone. Yes the touch screen and iPod functions are the best out there, but for pete's sake... we've been waiting almost 2 years for standard features. I guess you can tell me to get another phone, but I don't like any other phones, I just want some integrated features on my iPhone because I feel a little left out in some areas. Sorry for the long post. Anyone else secretly hate their iPhone sometimes? I wish Apple would at least give us a hint for what might be coming. It always feels as if we're just constantly waiting and waiting... then when we finally do get an update, it usually adds stuff that I really don't care about and then starts the waiting again.
