    hes more then likely talking about the fact that you cant attach anything from within a email you have to use other apps to do it..

    That is a valid point. It is kinda aggravating that you can't add attachments in the Mail app itself. This should've been mandatory.

    Yup. For me, almost everything is perfect about the phone except for the email capabilities and notifications. But again, nothing is ever perfect, so I guess it's perfect enough for now.

    Yeah email support is pretty important for me. And the fact that my gmail integration is lowly annoys me. How hard is it to properly push email to a phone?? This thing is supposed to be way better than a Blackberry but you can't push emails to the phone consistently? Argh

    I am still shocked that when I compose an email on my iPhone, I can't attach a picture. I thought that by now we would have a "photo" button similar to the messaging application.

    Yes once you jailbreak you can get an app that lets you Attach files from an email.

    Since its so "backwards", sell it and go back to your superior (lol) Blackberry devices.

    Most people don't need a million options in email...and i use email A LOT during the day too, to which the iPhone's system works perfectly fine and has everything I need within it. Im actually about to replace my work issued EVO with an iPhone 4S.

    Chill out, Sean. He has a valid complaint, he's not the first to voice it, and you don't speak for most people. If you're happy, good. You didn't even need to respond.

    Gmail integration and push works perfectly. I use it constantly. Set up gmail as an exchange account and email/calendars/contacts push/sync beautifully.

    You might want to look into Print n Share Pro, it has email built in and a ton of other useful features including attachments, a file system and printing to any network printer and much more. I use Boxcar for all my Push notifications.

    since when are you the voice of all people? being able to attach files to an email is a very basic function that email clients everywhere have had for years.. apple is behind on this front.. iPhones are great and they beat most phones in every category but the email capability is lacking on a iPhone

    You probably know this - but in case you don't - you can go to the picture first, then use the option to Email it.

    It's unacceptable on Apples part. It's is the only mobile OS that does not have this feature and this is the 5th version of iOS. You should not have to go to another app to accomplish this task.

    I have also recently made the switch from BB and find the inability to attach a file/photo to an email that I have already begun extremely frustrating. I hope that Apple will rectify the situation soon.

    They haven't addressed it in 5 os's I wouldn't think they will address it anytime soon.
