Few questions with iPhone software
Hello everyone. I'm new here and am wanting to get an iPhone, but currently have a Blackberry Torch. I absolutely love the BlackBerry notification system, and how everything worls fluidly with it. I love the contact id's where I can set custom ringtones AND SMS tones. My question is, "Why doesn't the iPhone allow custom sms tones for contacts?

It's crazy. I generally like how Apple keeps things consistent to protect the overall "experience" but not being able to customize sms/email/alarm/calendar tones makes zero sense to me. I've never heard a good reason for why these options don't exist. Not a deal breaker, but definitely an annoyance.

It's almost a deal breaker for me. You'd figure they'd have it. Blackberry has it and they are more of a business type than consumer. lol. That's why I've not switched yet. I love the iPhone, but unfortunately it does stop me. I don't understand why, but it does.

OK currently being in Europe I'm surrounded by Nokia phones. There are about 90% of the people I see have Nokia and after 3 weeks I have yet to see a pair of white earphones or someone on an iPhone. Yet even the simplest Nokia I've seen, a chocolate bar model has custom ringtones for SMS messages. I think Apple knows what users want but if they give it all to us why would we line up 8 hours at the launch of the next model of iPhone? and what would JBers have to offer us? I think it will come but they leave things out so they can improve the OS and gain new users and delight existing users.
