Don't you think iPhones should have a startup sound? I've always loved macintosh computer startups, because apple makes them cool, they should really make iPhone/iPad startup sounds. :)

nope...

imagine getting out of the cinema or off the plane and all the iPhone users are swithing their phones on again...

"hello! I gottan an iphone" is one part, the other is the shear annoyance...

iPhone Startup Chimes

My iMac startup sound annoys the hell out of me, not to mention is loud at night when people are asleep!

If my phone had it too, it would drive me mad...

On me old Razr, not only it let you assign start and shutdown sounds but full animation video, but I never assigned it a startup anything, like when I turn it on I am in a hurry and don't need any more delays. Shutdown though I had that Terminator sequence where it goes down the furnace and the visor/screen shuts down. :)

Like a Samsung device? I find it annoying.

On a Mac though its timeless and I love it.

That statement right there is an open indictment on Apple's view on silencing your iPhone. You should not HAVE to turn it off to make it perfectly silent!

Do Not Disturb (at least under iOS 6) only works when the phone is unlocked. Ring/Silent switch? Hey that works, except if you forget to turn off an alarm!

When I had my Window Mobile 6.1 Pro phone I could silence the entire thing by pressing and holding one button. Apple takes two or more toggles and if you want to be safe you got to turn it off completely.

Just dumb!

Please no startup tunes for the iPhone. Previous phones all did that and I frequently modded the firmware to get rid of it.
