    Laura, idk if you know this, but with Siri you have to actually 'speak' the punctuation you want.
    Ie. I want this meeting at seven pm Period Will you please call John about it question mark.

    And then she will insert what you ask her to
    Good info Pink.
    Tks

    My biggest gripe has been with MMS sent to multiple recipients I keep forgetting that I am also replying to every one the MMS was sent to. That can cause some awkward situations.
    I agree with this. I've replied to an entire group several times without intending to. It should have a "reply" or "reply to all" option just like typical email. This is a big oversight by Apple...unless I'm missing something.

    Hmmm...I can say several things, sadly, but I think it all comes down to lack of customization/personalization (compared to Android or BlackBerry). For example: there's no option other than a "bubble" to view text messages. Why isn't there an option to view the message on the entire screen versus about 2/3 of it? Only ONE email "icon" and no "new message" indicator. I only use 2 email accts on my iPhone, but during the week my work emails are A LOT more important than personal emails. If I could even assign different tones for the different email accounts it would be helpful. And the lack of a "new message" indicator is frustrating, especially since I cannot separate emails into different icons. I need to know is when a new work email comes in. I think it's asking a lot to keep up with how many unread emails you have to know if the little number icon changes to know if you have new email (if you don't hear the tone, it's on silent, you're away from it, etc). While on email - it would also be nice to "mark messages unread." I'm sure this is just habit but when a message is new, I know it still needs action on my part. Also, after reading and deleting a message (with the message open), I prefer to go back to my Inbox versus automatically opening the next message. Almost every employee in our organization has the "read message" notification turned on. So, they get a notification you've read the email when you might not have. Finally, you cannot (easily) insert a picture or any other object in an email. The only solution I've found is to leave the email, find the attachment - copy it and paste it in your email. That's a lot of steps for a simple attachment!

    While the iPhone does have shortcuts to ease with typing, the technology is extremely limited; and ultimately ineffective. The shortcut must have 2+ characters. On all my BlackBerry devices, I had extremely helpful shortcuts setup that helped enormously with typing (''r' -> 'are' 'u' -> 'you' etc) I also had shortcuts setup to easily insert punctuation and other symbols (question mark, exclamation mark, ampersand). Not only did it insert them easily, it automatically backspaced, inserted the symbol, then forward spaced.

    If there are solutions to any of these concerns, PLEASE help me! I've read through the manual and searched each specifically, but can't find any fixes! I guess I just feel like there should be more functionality for what we pay for these phones!
    Yes, the customizable email account and contact alerts are what I miss most about the BB. Wish each individual email account could have it's own icon on the home screen with badge alerts so we could see at a glance if a new email came in. Also, wish I could silence one account and make a separate tone for another account (I have three different work accounts alone plus personal ones and a joint one and I used to love when I would get alerted when an alert from a certain account, meaning a deal came in, whatever.). Lastly, I wish we cowld have separate, customizable tones for contacts. Hope these issues get fixed in a future update or app.

    YES! That is so annoying! When I first got the 4S, I accidentally replied to a group and a few of the recipients were international calls. Oh well!

    Solution: Turn off Group Messaging. SETTINGS --> MESSAGES --> Group Messaging, turn "OFF"

    This way you will only reply to the sender.

    Navigation, when I was on the other side stock google maps was the best and fast. I've purchased 4 navi apps that don't even hold a lighter to the android. I hate the fact that with big red and any navi on my iPhone i can't talk and navigate @ the same time. I miss that annoying chick coming through my bt when I was on a call saying in 100' take exit 420.

    Ok great LMK how you do. Speaking the punctuation also works when your dictating a text/iMessage too (when your actually in the message app to reply instead of typing)
    It worked. I tried it out yesterday afternoon when I got home and I can now say Siri passed remedial English classes.

    Now if I could just JB I'd be a happy chickie.

    I haven't read through the thread but yep, this. Navigation. Google Maps is limited. Apple really needs their own solution baked into the OS and I look forward to seeing their take on it.

    Navigon is ok, but to have navigation integrated into the OS would just be light years better. With billions in the bank, this is what i'd focus on.

    that my email doesn't come in unless i manually open the mail app (even though i have Push on and it is supposed to check/fetch new emails every 15 minutes) they just don't seem to come in and no one from Apple seems to know the answer. For all that my blackberry didn't do at least i got my emails AS SOON AS THEY WERE RECEIVED in my email client...

    Thank you LV !! I never knew this either.

    Quick question though - turning this feature to OFF will not prevent you from being able to still send a group message correct?

    Don't know what email client you're using, but set it up as exchange. I have my GMail set up as exchagne and it comes through as soon as it hits my computer.

    How do you get so much battery? Mine barely lasts the day with heavy use. Have you done a battery drain/charge thingy?

    My biggest peeve has more to do with Apple -- it's stranglehold on the app market, and the way it discourages or fights jail breaking. For instance, now apple is no longer signing ios 5.0.1 and there is no way to downgrade if you were forced to install or misguidedly installed 5.1. This sucks.


    Regarding the iOS generally:

    1: it needs an option to make alarms progressive.

    2: it needs different ringer/alert profiles that can be change instantly, like blackberrys have.

    3. Five icons on the doc

    4. The ability to hide native apps - like the calendar if you use an aftermarket one.

    5. Newsstand sucks. Lose it or allow
    Is the option to choose whether to use is, or alternatively turn it off. Let me take the NY time out of it and put it. With the rest of my Newpapers in a folder of my choosing.

    6. The mail client needs the ability to set up additional mailboxes and rules so that all mail from one place (say my forwarded work mail) can be automatically directed to one mailbox.

    Notably, most of theses are tweaks available from Cydia for jailbroken iPhones. Hopefully the new jailbreak will e available soon, or a way will be found to revert to iOS 5.0.1.

    Apparently a bug that some are experiencing including me. I'm getting the repeat on email alerts on my iPad 2 but iPhone 2 is OK.

    Good Luck

    "Strong" smelling or muscular? It does all the heavy lifting I ask it to, though Siri can get a bit lippy at times...
