    I voted push but I know its only for apps not email cause I would love push with AOL. With that in mind MMS is a must for me. I just voted push since most of us thoght push was coming with 2.1.

    Unified inbox is top of my list. I have like 5 accounts set up on my iPhone, and tapping in and out of all of them is too many taps.

    Today screen would be nifty.

    Ability to get refund on crApps would be nice.

    Shame you could only vote for 1 in the end, it had to be copy/paste for me as it's getting frustrating not being able to use that. I'd also go for landscape across the board and push notifications the rest I could take or leave, mind you, it would be good to see all of those features. The one thing that's not on the list is Flash - I know Apple have said it's a size issue but, again, it's frustrating to not be able to view certain video on my iPhone.

    Oh yes, I'd also like to be able to delete some of the native apps. I never use stocks, contacts just doubles what's in the phone anyway and I've got a much better weather app than the native one yet I can't delete those to make room for more useful apps.

    Please Apple Father Christmas, I've been fairly good this year, can you please put these under the tree for me?

    My car has built in Bluetooth support with steering wheel controls. When a phone pairs with the car it uploads contact records into the car to enable dialing via the steering wheel. My old Treo 680 uploaded only the "Favorites". The iPhone uploads all 3000 contacts (most are from our corporate install of MS CRM). This renders "dial by steering wheel" useless.

    I'd like to see the iPhone give users control over which contacts are fed to the BT unit.

    Am I alone in using the iPhone as a wake up alarm clock? I've been patiently waiting for the ability to wake up to an iTunes album or playlist rather than a ringtone/sound effect. Not a big deal I guess, but it seems like a no-brainer to me.

    I care

    Push for apps will change the device for the better more than any other feature

    I like that idea - then it would be easier to know what screen I was on without having to put on my glasses.

    I am not sure that this will come in 2.2, but I do believe that an "officially sanctioned" GPS app is in the works. Case in point:

    1) Isn't it wierd that Apple's SDK specifically prohibits anybody from making the one app that would really showcase the 2nd biggest new feature of the 3G?
    2) There seems to be a "cooling off" between Google, with Google Maps and Apple. For the first time, a new feature (street view) hits Java phones before the iPhone.

    Of course, the iPhone would make a rather interesting platform, based on the fact that it is a connected device. Real-time traffic data could be downloaded (or even shared). Imagine every iPhone user out there updating a traffic database everyday.

    I don't think that this is an "if" rather than a "when". I believe this is probably the next "Oh, one more thing" type of deals.

    How hard could it be to sync the notes application and my to-do list in iCal?

    I'm not sure if this is what you're talking about, but I've got an app called Traffic UK which is a pretty accurate traffic data app. I did hear something about Tomtom bringing out a possible sat nav app after 2.1 but nothing seems to have happened yet.

    Or the to-do list in Outlook? I use Evernote to sync my to-do list with my laptop but I'd still rather have something that synced with Outlook.

    Video recording, and copy and paste. Video recording should be as big as a must as a camera on a high end phone. Since Apple gave us You Tube and Myspace on our phones then why wouldnt we have video recording ability to download a video we capture to upload to You Tube and My space?

    As jailbroken phones can record video, it's obviously not that big a task to enable and it's a common feature on cheaper handsets. Wouldn't we all be shocked if Apple gave us all these features in the next update?

    About the only thing I really wish for would be a way to adjust the screen brightness on the fly. The auto adjust doesn't have enough range. Or, even better, a way to adjust the range!

    MMS would be okay, but I'm not lost without it. Cut/copy and paste is also not a big loss.

    I'd also like to be able to forward text messages although it's not something I would do a lot, there are times when I find I really need it and as there's no copy/paste either it gets very annoying.

    I'd like a lot of things. I'm not holding my breath for turn-by-turn in a FW update, because there's too much money to be made with it in the app store when someone finally brings it. Landscape email/sms would be great, but I can live without it. Copy/paste? I know everyone makes such a fuss, and for the life of me, I don't know why it wasn't included to begin with, but I'm fine without it. Notifications would be nice, because facebook sits there and does nothing until I click it, but I get the emails that tell me to check it, not to mention other apps.

    But what I would REALLY like, and it's totally do-able, is for some settings (airplane, wi-fi, BT et. al.) to be easily and quickly accessible from my home screen with a toggle command. I HATE wasting time turning things on and off. It could be an option like the home button double-tap, that brings up a pop-up screen for network settings. Wouldn't that be convenient?

    Answer: yes. Now do it, Apple!
