    For me it was no FaceTime over cellular data. Ik it's possible because their are PLENTY of video chatting apps that I use right now that can be used over 3G,so they can stick that "4S processor" excuse up their butt!

    Basically, everything that was left out for the iPhone 4. The only reasons that I wanted to upgrade were turn-by-turn and cellular FaceTime.

    Still no improvements to the Lock Screen, which remains as underutilized as it was when the original iPhone launched. God help me, I'm actually starting to warm up to the idea of switching to Android ICS or WP8. I don't understand why Apple continues to insist that the Lock Screen can only unlock, nothing more.

    But that's precisely what it's meant to do. Nothing. They do that so it doesn't press buttons in your pocket. or do calls or something like that.

    I don't know about you, but I am able to launch directly into the camera and take a picture. That's more than just unlocking for me. What else do you want it to do?

    haha sucks apple locks down everything android has had video chat over cellular network for awhile. But with the carriers getting rid of unlimited grandfathered data facetime over cellular is kinda worthless.

    I can take a picture, too. Nice, but I'd rather be able to pull my phone out of my pocket, see my next few appointments and any critical pending to-dos WITHOUT having to swipe to unlock or type in an unlock password. Notifications that only show up after they've been triggered aren't much use, IMO. My guess is that Apple won't enable this sort of thing for customer privacy reasons. But surely that should be my risk to take, without having to jailbreak to do it. I've been hoping for more built-in iOS features that mimic LockInfo or Intelliscreen with every iOS update. Apple didn't get any closer with iOS 6, unfortunately. I doubt this will ever happen, hence my consideration of other mobile OS that might give me what I want.

    The lack of every new feature, even though the iPhone 3G is fully capable of running them all. Doesn't really matter though as by the fall I'll have a new phone anyways, if I stay with Apple I'd be getting the 5 since my contact has been up since last year.

    The biggest let-down is the removal of street view for me, nothing in iOS 6 is new, innovative, revolutionary, or ahead of the competition, nothing. If I buy an iPhone 5 I lose something which I use everyday, which is irreplaceable, even though I love the Apple ecosystem, and I really do not want to leave, I feel like I'm left with no choice, Apple seems to think they can rest on past success, like BlackBerry. As a consumer who doesn't care about stock prices or sales, iOS is a downgrade for me, really hard to believe that Apple could only make iOS worse in an entire year. Some of the new Android phones are really good, and way way ahead of Apple's OS now, it makes it almost easy to switch when just looking at phones, If I go to Android I keep street view, have a far superior maps app, and many other features the iPhone will likely never have.

    Another thread about disappointment in iOS 6.

    Apple as a company, who cares about stock prices and sales, is making a bold move. They are tightly integrating iOS and OSX. Apple could not bring their mapping software to Mac using Google. We have no idea what their plans are. But, currently it looks like they are tightening the ecosystem even more. Some may not agree with this action, but this is Apple, this is how they operate.

    As far as older hardware not getting all the features? Move to Android and then you'll really have a reason to complain....

    It's something about the Galaxy S III, it's the first Android phone I actually respect. I'm far from moving to it, but I'd just like to see what iOS becomes in the next 3 years.

    Another thread about disappointment in iOS 6.
    Ever stop to think that the reason the entire net is flooded with disappointment in iOS 6 is because it is one big steaming disappointment? If so many people agree, including a lot of long time Apple supporters, there has to be merit to the complaints.

    Driving people away doesn't seem like a good way to generate sales and high stock prices, eventually the cool factor will totally wear off, it already has for young people. Nobody I know wants an iPhone anymore, everybody wants Android or Windows phones, I know a lot of people excited about the new Galaxy phone coming out, I haven't heard anything about iOS 6 or the iPhone 5, they are off the radar. Blackberry once made the same mistakes, I'm sure sticking with an outdated ui for another 5 years won't have any effect on sales

    While true, at least Android isn't regressing, and has made progress faster, and isn't resting on the past, iOS 4 and 5 were ten times the upgrades iOS 6 is. Makes me wonder what they've been doing the past year.

    Once again, many seem disappointed and talk of Apple "driving them away", yet they remain - if for no other reason that to continue complaining.

    I've seen more complaining about people complaining, let people express their opinions, Apple is a company, not a religion (well not to everybody)..

    I get it... Apple is not perfect, and I don't recall ever saying that they were... sometimes they disappoint...

    I guess I'm puzzled: if the dissatisfied users don't "leave", how is it that Apple is "driving them away"?

    If Android, Windows Phone or BlackBerry better suits your need, by all means, go where your needs are being met.

    I am truly not looking for a flame war. All I am saying is that it does get old to hear the same people complain about how old and stale iOS is, yet they continue using it. That's all. If I somehow offended you (or anyone else) by asking these questions, I apologize. That was never my intent. I was simply expressing my opinion.

    I don't know about the latest Android OS Ice Cream Sandwich but my time with Gingerbread was not pleasant.

    Coming from IOS since 2007 to 2009 then BB and Android I was kind of thrilled about changing keyboards,Text Apps, and so on in Android but they all seem kind of flaky. Constant reinstalling of apps because they seem to get corrupted. Certain apps not being able to run on the SD card and the phone is blown out with memory.

    There was a huge disappearing app icon problem with Gingerbread or maybe HTC Sense I don't know HTC Sense for HTC phones runs on top of Android OS it was a PITA.

    Coming back I appreciate IOS, the keyboard stays the same but it doesn't get flaky like the 3 rd party Android Keyboard apps. The text apps in Android can be just as crazy constant trashing and reinstalling.

    Android may have some slight functionality advantages over IOS but you pay for it in fragmentation of the software.

    Apple may have a tight grip on IOS and what can be done but it keeps it tight. Android is not tight.
    When you get a Android phone the OS it comes with may very well be the OS it will have forever.
    The HTC EVO 3D I got rid of was less than a year old and the OS still has not been updated unless you root/Jailbreak it

    Even the 3 year old 3GS is getting something of a update without a jail break.

    Basically what everyone else has said. No turn-by-turn and 3G FaceTime. Those are the 2 biggies. But I want LTE 4G, so upgrading to the new iPhone is a given for me. Sucks for those that went for the cheap 4, but they knew the product cycle going in.

    Some of the exclusions bummed me out but then it dawned on me that when iOS6 comes out there will likely be an iPhone 5 as well. That makes my iPhone 4 2 gens old at that time. That is if the timing works out for the release of the 5.

    Doesn't make it suck any less but tis the way. The older phones can't stay on top forever.
    Besides it you jailbreak all or at least most of those features will be available thru JB hacks and such.

    I'm Surprised 3GS hasn't got cut off yet completely I mean all model eventually do 3G was 4.2.1 so it's only a matter of time .. If all models did the same then why upgrade and I think apple want best user experience possible .. So ya it does suck some features got left out but Atleast it got some and JB is always a option and since it will be 2 generations old some of you should be ready to upgrade ..
