I want it to be like a normal phone in the respect of using Music you have on your phone as a ringtone. I shouldn't have to jailbreak my device to use regular mp3's as my ringer. Also, I want to be able to change the email and message tones to different one's. And receiving emails instantly like on my old blackberry. But even with these annoyances, I still love my iphone4!

I agree that they shouldn't add a keyboard but I just wanted to point out that what you said was entirely false.

That's a very odd list. The main thing I really want in an iPhone 5 is "more." I have a 3GS now, and if it weren't $700 for a no-commitment iPhone 4, I'd love one of those right now.
What I'd like to see:
Retina Display (a given, the main reason I want to upgrade early)
802.11n wifi (another given, just one I don't have)
Better battery life without sacrificing small size (hopefully a given)
Faster mobile network access (LTE reality by then?)
More storage and memory (512MB RAM/64GB storage would be fine)
Facetime everywhere (not just wifi)
Better free navigation (Android Google maps with traffic would be nice)
Lower price (or more hardware for the money)
I'd like to be able to do more stuff from the cloud, like wireless sync, and streaming my music collection.
GameCenter should back up saved games and other app data
Higher download limits, 20MB is not enough for most podcasts.
Stuff that needs to come from the carriers:
Unlimited data plans for everyone, or higher limits
Free tethering that uses existing data quotas, and allows wifi iPads to share
"more bars in more places"
Do not want:
keyboard (bulky, dorky)
notification light (I turn this off on my Blackberry, find it distracting)
massively HD camera (huge files complicate storage, backup, and transfer)

Why would anyone want a physical keyboard on the iPhone? they are old hardware. The phones that use them now are only trying to phase in stubborn users who want to use the physical keyboard. Yet they don't realize that if every manufacturer was onscreen only those people would adapt. The iPhone was the first smartphone I would say I've used. I have never used any physical keyboard, until now. I've been using an HTC Dream and the physical keyboard is a pain in the arse. I can't wait to get my Bold 9650 and try their full keyboard but I'm pretty sure it will not impress me either.

It would take probably 3 minutes for someone at Apple to code a version of iOS that supports a built-in hardware keyboard. The OS would not have to be completely re-written, as you said.
