    This thread is in no way intended to complain about or flame the iPhone. It is solely to create a list of features that are unfortunately absent. And yes, Jailbreaking does cater to a lot of the things that will be posted in this thread. But this is directed at the the way Apple designed the OS and what it still needs that we can only hope to see in the future from them. That said, please keep it mature, serious, and unbiased.


    There are plenty I can name, but I'll start with one: I miss being able to cancel a text after I've sent it.

    Funny....... I was going to type that. Clearly you're already using it to read minds.

    I wish I could use it to buy stuff while roaming the "real world." And I'd like to replace all my keys with it.

    1. I know steve jobs said that Printing is coming to the iPad, but I hope it comes to the iPhone as well.

    2. A better maps application with turn-by-turn Navigation.

    No, I actually really wish I could use it as a transporter. Just because it's not realistic now, doesn't mean I don't want it to do that.


    This is getting close to that:

    Agreed.

    These other replies are enough to make me wonder why I use this as my primary Apple forum.

    Without having to JB my iPhone 4, I wish I could hide my unused icons the way I could on my old Blackberries.

    If I had to pick only three things, these would be it.

    Right now, these three things are the primary reason I jailbreak.

    Wifi Tethering would be cool, but I can take it or leave it. More fine-grain control of sounds would be nice too. But the top three first.

    A wallet/purse is easily stolen as well. TBH, I don't see the difference.

    I'm looking forward to the day that I don't have to carry a wallet around anymore.
