    All of the above and landscape texting. Otherwise I am unlocking December the 31st when the Dev team releases the updated program or what not and selling my iPhone on eBay in January.

    We really need background notification. Or, the ability to have apps run in the background. Another thing would be the ability to integrate some of the apps together. Sometimes I feel my iPhone is like a large house with many rooms, but no doors - things seem too isolated now. An example, apps are allowed to download and store files, but these files can't be shared with any other app. One exception to this may be photos. I wish there was one single, centralized file room where we could store our files and any app could access this room.

    I'd take any one of those on your list. Push would be great. Turn by turn would be great too.

    I was wondering, as a solution to people that travel out of range of cell reception when they go on road trips, if it were possible for google to create some sort of 'map pack' for a particular route that you enter in. Say, go into the Maps app, you enter in a route and the route/directions is shown. There might be an option somewhere for you to download the (map only, not satellite imagery) images for the length of the route, at select zoom levels.

    Shouldn't be very big (filesize-wise) since the imagery isn't complex.

    That out of the way...volume controls on the in-ears. Please.

    I totally agree with that. A common storage area would be helpful for a lot of functions. You could save email attachments there, or even bluetooth transfers (if that ever becomes a possibility). You could also keep edited documents there (if a real office mobile app ever comes out).

    no excuses, its a software company and they have had so much time to incorporate these features instead of street view or landscape mode for calculator. Utterly sad :(

    Could you re-write that with some punctuation? I haven't a clue what you're trying to say.

    If you're going to have another of these worthless threads, OP, the least you could do is include VOICE DIALING. Because we don't have VOICE DIALING yet.

    What about iChat? I heard something about iChat coming to 2.3, but that's just a rumor.

    It never really bothered me before but lately i have run in to quite a few situations where copy and paste would have come in really handy.

    I really hope Apple comes out with a truly "Copy-and-paste" function.

    More than likely it wont have any of the features listed above, we will probraly just get an updated version of google maps as the main feature of 2.3

    I would love for a native tasks app on the phone and to have the Notes App on MobileMe and have them both sync.

    Great idea for a poll. This really gives a good look into what people really want and how much of a priority the features are.... Apple? You out there?

    It's a good idea...for our own viewing pleasures. Polls like these have been around since the inception of the iPhone and Apple has not once, with the possible exception of a more stable Safari, heeded their advice. Instead, we are fed fluff like Google Street View
