    The idea behind the iPhone was to start simple and slowly build up from there. The point is to have a system that 'just works' without the sort of problems that come with making things very complicated from the very start.

    BIG DEFINING FEATURES OF EACH iPhone OS

    1.0 -> Web browsing / Phone
    2.0 -> Apps
    3.0 -> Search
    4.0 -> File Management?

    That's my guess, anyway. And you won't get 'save from e-mail' until you get that one really big feature of file management.

    And that's not the sort of thing they're just going to put in a 3.1 or a 3.2 update. It will be at least next year before they do something that major.

    You don't need to save attachments. Apple will let you know when you do.

    i know people who follow this line of thinking. it really does save on the constant urge to complain, get upset, and get frustrated at your technology products.

    if you dont have a feature....apple feels you dont need it and they will let you know when you do. the end.

    pretty crazy

    But, my 3G running 3.0 doesn't just work. It is overall very slow. When texting, my fingers can move 10x faster than they letter pop-up. My "slide to unlock" screen sometimes get stuck on this screen and doesn't work. And, my syncing takes over 40 minutes.

    Fantastic response. I love it.

    Why do you want to save an attachment that is already stored on your email server?

    40 minutes? You should restore as a new iPhone and start fresh.

    This should be apple's new marketing tagline.

    When I said 'the point' I guess I should have been more specific and said 'the goal.'

    That's the philosophy behind the choices they make. The execution may vary, but that's where they ideas come from.
