    I would want to see multitasking and filebrowser. IMO most of the iPhone's limitations is based on missing these two functions.

    Hmmm ... lots of people keeping getting excited because the iPhone has a camera, web browser, email, games, messaging, iPod functions ... so I know, a phone function might come in handy. ;)

    Be careful.... I got a PM from a guy complaining of my response to one of these silly threads. I guess I wasn't nice enough in my response so he felt the need to let me know he was displeased. I however am with you.... ffs just wait until the new phone is out then you will all know.

    Longer battery life, like way longer. Built in GPS receiver so you don't have to fork out for a TomTom bit if you want really good performance. Time for some funky colours now too.

    Tethering? Got that in the UK. Might want to have words with your carrier about that one - the iphone 3GS is tethering capable already.

    Agree with others about threads early, but then i'm all for having a centralised thread for things hehe.

    OLED screen at a bigger screen with a higher resolution and a better camera and new UI, this one is old and boring and getting left behind..also better push notifications that are less intrusive or backgorund processes

    I just want something that looks different so, when I spend a total of £900 on the latest iPhone, other people can see straight away. I'm annoyed by my 3GS - especially when in a case, it looks exactly the same as eveyone's 1G and 2G iPhones.

    In other words you want a phone that gives you a 75% chance of being mugged every time you leave the house? :D

    In case you didn't realize it, you are on a site called macRUMORS people are going to speculate on future products that aren't out yet. It's the whole concept of a rumor. If you are discontent loook for a site about facts and then you will only see threads about things that already exist and are solidified.

    The ability to send SMSs from iTunes... so that when your phones docked you don't need to constantly unplug it everytime you want to reply to a text. Plus it would make sending those 'I want you back' text messages to your ex girlfriend that are about 30 pages long much faster.

    There are too many of these threads I agree, but what the hell here goes;

    OLED Screen with increased resolution and perhaps with Res Independance,
    Better battery,
    UI Update - including themes, ability to remove Apple apps, widgets; ie make use of OpenGL
    A File Manager is a must surely?!?
    Proper Bluetooth with the ability to share files between phones (although I can see why they'd not be too happy about that).

    A redesign would be nice, but the screen is the limiting factor and quite frankly I wouldn't want it smaller, so as it is, is fine for me.

    Lets have Flash for increased web satisfaction, FM radio, better optics and flash (space and styling obvisously a limiting factor), increased bluetooth functionality and 64 Gb of memory (most obvious inclusion next summer)

    I've written on past posts, I believe the main reasosns obvious items are still excluded are purely marketing on behalf of Apple. They can drip functions (that are already well established on other mobiles) into the iPhone over successive incarnations, thus extending its life. Functions that really aren't mind-blowingly high tech or brand new, so I struggle to believe there are reasons other than marketing why they're not included. That said, I couldn't live without my baby!
