What features would you have added to 3.0 that Apple left out?
So we all know what to expect with iPhone OS 3.0... but what features, if anything, would you have liked to have seen Apple squeeze in?
I know most of you will say video recording so that is a given. Anything else?

Even with spotlight, I would still want an easier way to organize apps on the iPhone, like through iTunes.
The other thing that would be very useful it to allow 3rd party background apps. Yes, push is nice and works for certain type of apps, but there are some (radio apps) that need to be able to run in the background. I'm holding out hope for a surprise in the 3.0 to allow background apps possibly with a new 3rd gen iPhone.

This is what I think about the video, apple knows the camera can do video, but they don't want the crappy camera doing it, if it's gonna have their name on it. it's gonna have a better camera with a better electronic shutter that can do a better frame rate and more MP.

I would like to have seen some very simple things added rather than MMS and A2DP Support...
ToDos in Calendar and Sync'd with MobileMe: A third party app would cause me more unorganization right from the start. So, I'll never buy one.
Mail "Junk" filters and Flagging: Need I explain?... Ughhh.
Access to "Recent Call List" While Having Someone on Hold: Why is every other phone app feature available except this one?
More Sound Settings: This one is trivial, but would still be useful in situations.
I could go on, but I won't.

I would have to say my most needed addition to the Iphone software is smart dial. I am so used to that with my PPCs that its hard to get away from with the Iphone. I love dialing the name using the keypad and it makes using the phone easier. this would be my number one gripe with the phone.

Some small stuff missing:
1) Spell check as you type in email.
2) Multiple signatures in email.
3) Let us select our own colors for calendars.
Big stuff that stinks that they'll never change:
1) Give us "conduits" like Palm had so we can manage our music, addresses, notes, etc with programs of our choice.
2) Give us access to the iPhone file system. I'd love to edit the hosts file to block ads.

Also... thought of a new one! The ability to password protect certain apps on the phone separately: Photos, notes, SMS/MMS, etc. I believe Samsung does this on their regular phones. I like to be able to allow people to use the device without worrying about what section of the phone they're at.
