I had the original iPhone since the day that it came out, the same with the 3G, and there are a few things that continue to bug me - I just don't understand why Apple doesn't fix them. Perhaps they don't bother other people very much. Do you guys and gals agree with these issues? Here they are: (in order of annoyance) 1.) You can't update podcasts straight from the iPhone. This is being rectified in 2.2 and I can't wait. I often forget to sync it before I rush off in the morning, or the podcast is updated in the afternoon (which is otherwise perfect as I can listen to it on my way home). I also can't sync the iPhone if I'm away from home (which I tend to be fairly frequently for a few days at a time). I can't be bothered to bring my laptop with me most of the time - after all the iPhone is supposed to replace your computer on the go (for the most part), not require you to bring it with you. This wouldn't be so much of an issue if I could update the podcasts via another computer, but you're stuck with using only one iTunes without wiping the iPhone. 2.) I just don't understand why they haven't implemented a way of forwarding contact details (by sms and email). I've often had to pull out a paper and pen to jot down from the iPhone a number or address, before inputing it back into the phone so I can forward it. It's a little absurd! You can do it from memory too, obviously (and it may be a good way of improving short-term memory!), but it's basic function that needs to be there. 3.) In a related issue, the iPhone should allow you to forward/delete (single) SMS. I've been in situations where I've needed to forward directions/details to someone else, or forward news, or quote someone, and have been forced to do so from memory or by going back and forth between conversations. I even have a way to make this work in the iChat-esque format: you would touch and hold on any one SMS bubble for 2-3 seconds and then a menu would come up with options to forward etc. It would be easy to ensure the phone knows the difference between that and a finger scrolling - you could extend the time needed to press and hold for the menu to 5 secs etc, as it's not a function that people need to use often. 4.) Why does the iPhone turn on when you plug it into the wall charger? I know that it does so because it needs to turn on to sync when you plug it into the computer, but why can't it differentiate between the two? The natural way of doing things is to turn the phone off and then plug it in to the charger, not the other way round. It's a minor issue, but there's been at least one time when I've plugged the phone in before going to bed and then been woken by someone calling because I'd forgotten that plugging it in automatically switches it back on. In fact, if it isn't possible to make the iPhone do one thing for computers and another for the charger via software, I would rather that I had to switch it on first manually and then sync (as I naturally do that anyway). And never switching the phone off and keeping it on silent at night isn't an option as the vibration is still annoying in a silent room. 5.) Another problem with the SMS app is that after you send a text, you can't remove the keyboard by tapping on the top half of the screen (a la the AIM app), and it doesn't automatically do it. You have to tap out of the conversation and then go back into it. Again, not a big deal, but it irks me. 6.) I wish that you could read emails in landscape format (this would be especially useful for long emails or emails with images). Unlike others I'm not too bothered about the lack of an option to type SMS or emails in landscape, however. I actually type far slower on the landscape mode in Safari, as (for me) it's either the tiny keyboard that works (I use both thumbs and make lots of mistakes but the auto-correct is very good), or a full size keyboard where you can use all your of fingers (which obviously isn't an option on the iPhone). The landscape keyboard is an in-between and makes typing with thumbs slower (in my experience), and doesn't really allow you to use your fingers to help out. The most frustrating thing about these issues is that they would all be very easy to implement/fix (I think).
