    how do I get to my favorite numbers on my PHONE, you know, the thing I make calls with.

    It's great that I can now play Papi Jump and Facebook too, but I'd like to be able to access my freaking favorite numbers.

    Apple believes Multitasking > Calling all your friends fast

    And what Apple believes is right, is always right.... Right?

    You gotta be kidding me. No more favorites in anywhere remotely useful?

    Lol, I love my iphone, but I probably doubletap to get to my favorites more than any other function on the phone. My wife's number is right on top, I can double tap and hit the top without having to look.

    Laaaaaaame

    Is clicking the phone icon which is most likely in your dock much more difficult then hitting the home button twice? What am I missing here? If you last used the Favorites section of the phone that section will load up first.

    Doh *runs into the corner and hides*

    Well then hopefully someone creates app (or there might already be one) where you can just have that app in your dock all the time so when you click you have all your Favorite Contacts right there

    Do that without looking. One of the few things you can do on the iphone without how to look at it.

    Can't you just press and hold so Voice Control comes up? And then say who you wanna call.

    Oh okay I see what your saying then. At least your better off then me who had my double tap set to the camera. Now I have to waste my home page real estate with the camera app. I agree that it's always annoying when a new version of an OS actually takes away a feature but IMO it's worth it having the quick app switcher since I'm generally using the same 4 apps or so at all times.

    That doesn't make sense. What 4 apps do you need running together that would require multitasking over just switching apps?

    Gahhhhh, 10 different times so far today I've gone to doubleclick my favorites while driving or doing something only for that freaking multitask bar to pop up.

    In 2.5 years of owning an iphone, I've never felt the need to multitask. And yet, in 1 day, they remove the most useful feature OF WHAT IS FOREMOST A GODDAMN TELEPHONE.

    seriously do we have to hear the whining? for a very small number of people this is nothing more than an inconvenience, and to the rest of us its nothing... nothing at all.

    You will adapt. plus if you cant hit the phone icon and tap your wifes name without looking you gotta work on your touchscreen use.

    Oh I think it's a nuisance to a lot more people then you think. It is my only complaint about iOS4, it drives me nuts too. At least let me set the triple click to that, I don't need reverse colors, etc.

    Even sent an email to sjobs about that, meh will it make a difference, probably not but worth a try.

    Just because its the most useful feature to you doesn't mean the masses feel that way. I've had all three iphones and I've never used the double tap feature.
