    Does anyone know if we will finally be able to use different notification tones for email or for text messages than the few crappy ones we have now?

    And the notification system is the same pile of junk. Yet they spent all that time on iAds. Not acting like a very consumer-centric company.

    I was hoping for an audio clip of Steve going "Stop me if you've seen this" anytime an email arrives. :(

    There needs to be more options, or a way to customize those tones. iPhones are very popular, and when in a crowded room it's funny to see a lot of people reach for their phone when someone gets a text.

    For some reason I had a vision of Joey from Friends speaking French when I read that ... :D

    This is the most maddening part of Apple, in my opinion. It's just arrogant, ignorant, and very telling of how Apple feels about it's customer base. 4 years with the same crappy tones can only be one thing: A Pavlovian marketing ploy.

    People often jailbreak for simple customization like this. If Apple wants to stop people from jail breaking, take off the handcuffs... or at the very least, loosen 'em up a little.

    I may jailbreak now and add "Verizon!" as a chime.

    Yep, this is a feature that nearly every phone in the last 10 years has had!

    Guys,

    This drives me nuts too. We have this state of the art top of the line phone, and the most limited selection of crappy tones for alerts we're stuck using.

    PLEASE go to http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html and let them know how you feel! I did! :)

    Lol

    "The Connection Was Reset"

    I get that when I submit my feedback. Guess they don't want it. Hehe.

    I got the same thing when I tried to submit mine. I guess they are too busy to take any feedback LOL. Try again later though! This is a legit gripe!

    I'm sure at this point they'd actually welcome any complaint that didn't revolve around the white 4!

    One of the things I'll miss the most until the jailbreak for iPhone 4 is hearing Sheldon Cooper say "Bazinga!" when I get a new text message.

    While it would be nice to have at least a few choices for alert tones, it does at least stem the tide of idiots who have a 20-second clip of some stupid rap song or death metal song play EVERY TIME they get a text message. It seems that the only people that do this are the ones that get 40 texts a minute, by the way.

    Maybe it's just Apple's way of trying to solve the noise pollution problem.

    Someone put a whole pack of Big Bang Theory notification sounds on Cydia. It's awesome!

    I might jailbreak my 3GS just to see what's out there. I'm going to keep my iPhone 4 virgin though :)
