    No offense Surur, but when you attack anyone with a positive iPhone posting, and start suggesting what people should and should not post about, its far from friendly.

    This whole thread is how the iPhone isn't perfect. I did not say you are not enjoying your IPhone. I have said all along calling it perfect is hyperbole and unwarranted. Hence the comment when you did.

    Apple stock just hit another new high. It is up 17% since the iPhone became available in spite of this thread.
    Apparently on the back of Piper Jaffray upping the target price to $205. This is based on estimates of the additional revenue from each AT&T customer and a sales estimate of 45 million iPhones in 2009:

    45 million sure would be a lot of devices - more than half the size of the 2006 smartphone market.

    Never did I say the iPhone is perfect. I said for some people, it fits their needs perfectly. That is a big difference. Even the hardest iPhone supporters will admit to some lack of features. For me, I want a phone I can text, browse the web, and listen to music on. I find the WM interface to be terrible (it actually gives me a stomach ache to look at my old 8125 now), and the blackberry to be to limited in the browsing and music features (second to none in email though). So, I actually love the iPhone for what it does for me.

    Heck, I guess we should continue and drive the stock up another 50%.
    I guess if you believe it takes two to tango then you might believe negative views contribute to the hype. I think Ars Technica had a comment to this effect. Personally, I have considerable doubts that this thread is having much of an effect on stock price though!

    And I disagree even with this statement. Nothing in the world is ever perfect. If the iPhone was perfect for some-one why would they buy the iPhone II or any other phone in their life.

    Assigning "no ring tone" for a specific contact?

    So have I missed something? I want to assign "no ring tone" for a specific contact in on my iPhone. Specifically, my ex-wife. I used to be able to do this with my old phone. It was nice to never have to answer her calls (or to be bothered by the ringer - then ignoring her call). Has anyone else noticed this lacking feature?

    Yeah I had a program on my Treo that pushed numbers I picked straight to voice mail.

    I think once we get the ability to add custom ring tones a "silent" ring will be used

    Now where is that update

    just give your ex wive that number that your suppose to give out to the people who you meet at bars but dont wanna really give your number. she will get the point.

    Use Sound Studio or whatever (any voice recording software) and record a 2 second blank sound then delete the bits at the beginning and end where you hear the clicks, then convert it to acc (.m4a) and follow the 'Ringtones' tutorial on www.hacktheiphone.com

    A silent ringer is great when you are able to set all no caller id'ed numbers to it. Or even numbers not in your phone book.

    The bottom line is that we need (expect) more options on a phone like this. Are you listening Apple?

    Or it may be funnier to say, can you hear me now?

    It's a projection of future sales not a report of anything that's happened. I'd imagine it would be of interest to Microsoft, Nokia, Palm, SonyEricsson, RIM, Motorola, HTC, North American, European and other carriers... etc, etc.

    Google Maps Pins...

    Can you place one wherever you want? For example if I want to keep track of fishing locations? I can't search the point to add a bookmark, but I can't find a way so I'm guessing there isn't.
