    The list is longer if you ask what iOS can do that Android can't.
    OK, since no one else asked. What is the list of things that iOS can do that Android can't?

    It's such a long list, no one has had the time to finish it. But at the top, I'd put the fact that whichever iOS device you own can run any app you can buy in iTunes. With over 800 Android devices, your chances are always getting smaller. As a reluctant Android developer, I'm well aware of the problems here.

    Thanks, Alli. I can appreciate that. I didn't know you were an Android developer. That is cool.

    Holy non comprehension skills batman! Did you even READ the post that I was replying to here before going off on a tangent? I thought not. OK, let me refresh your memory a little.



    Where in THIS POST is the word "CUSTOMIZATIONS"? Well guess what, it's NOT there. That poster was talking about stock iOS, and no, you CAN'T do all of those things with stock iOS UNLESS you jailbreak. For starters you can't do turn by turn voice directed navi as you claim to here because the stock maps app isn't capable of that. As a matter of fact you can't do ANY of the non physical things that I mentioned with stock iOS.
    Why do i have to keep spelling out that i am ALWAYS referring to a jailbroken iPhone? Understand it please, its quite frustrating to have to keep saying it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

    And comprehension? This ENTIRE thread we've been discussing customizing iPhones or how people complain that you CANT do such...someone asks what you can't do on the iPhone and you just magically assume they're talking about all things EXCEPT customizing? lol...come on now!

    With your logic slipping this bad, i would suggest a battery pull (lmao)...then voice turn by turn navigation back to reality where the content of this thread isn't forgotten conveniently in a response where you list all the things an iPhone can't do, only to revert back to the "Well, you can't unless you jailbreak" BS.

    It's such a familiar thing...like when windows fan boys realized people could partition Windows on their MacBooks, which actually ran the software better than most windows based PC's did, but people just KNEW computers equipped with Windows in stock form were better for some reason, lol.

    With that, i say again, yes, i can do all of those things with my iPhone, i don't care that you can't do it natively because when the millions of iPhone users have a jailbreak available to them, guess what...they don't have to worry about native abilities anymore.

    It's hilarious how defensive Android product fans get when they are told the iPhone can do the same things. Get over it! They're all over priced, under-featured toys that the companies make billions off of us with. It's all the same crap!

    And while we're listing what the iPhone can do that the Android phone can't...have you ever tried to back up your android device to a computer and then use said backup on another android device? Heh... :o

    Yes, you are correct. You did make it clear, at least in my opinion, that you were referencing jailbroken phones. Having said that, we both know that the majority of iPhone users will not jailbreak their devices and there is nothing wrong with that. There is also nothing wrong with people wanting to be able to wholly customize their devices without having to jailbreak it. Will Apple allow such a thing? I doubt it and why would they? They are, after all, very successful without having to. Anyway, that is my take on it. Take care & enjoy your weekend.

    Seriously? Let me spell this one out for you since you are sooooo dense here and can't get it through to that think skull of yours. You CANNOT talk about all those things that were mentioned in the opening post without referring to jailbreak because you CAN'T and PROBABLY NEVER will running stock iOS. Also, all this talk of yours about "customizing" is a joke because there is very little customization allowed to the stock iOS user. Again, WITHOUT jailbreaking, period.

    And comprehension? This ENTIRE thread we've been discussing customizing iPhones or how people complain that you CANT do such...
    I don't hear complaints, just you rambling on and on and on here. Whether you like it or not, you CAN'T customize STOCK iOS. That is NOT a complaint, it's a FACT!!

    someone asks what you can't do on the iPhone and you just magically assume they're talking about all things EXCEPT customizing? lol...come on now!
    Are you always this dense or what? The question of "What can Android do that iOS can not" wasn't that difficult to process. I didn't have to read into anything nor was it a difficult one to answer, so stop with the mindless dribble here and come back at me when you're able to fully process a question WITHOUT READING INTO IT!

    Perhaps you should stop quoting things from a 3rd graders insult book because it really does show your lack of thought process on your part here. ..... Until Apple steps up their game and allows what was mentioned in post #1 (which I doubt they ever will) it's ALWAYS going to come down to jailbreak. Without it the iPhone itself is quite simply, lackluster. Once again, there is no discussion of customization without mentioning the word "jailbreak" whether you like it or not because Apple offers very little in the way of customizing anything on the iPhone.

    To be honest, the amount of people that jailbreak their iOS device is substantial, and i believe the "majority" of people WOULD jailbreak their device if they understood clearly that there's really no downside to it AT ALL. People have this false sense that a jailbreak is going to damage their phone, primarily because misinformed and uneducated people spread rumors about it that are simply BS.

    Hell, my mom, who is a complete tech retard has her iPhone jailbroken and is a pretty seasoned user of Cydia now, showing me a pretty awesome home screen layout she setup the other day that i didn't think her capable of. That tells me this "majority wouldn't blah blah blah" is a load of crap.

    You don't hear complaints? lol...then what the hell is this thread about? Again, since you seem to be back tracking the "debate" to fit your agenda now, i'll just leave this comment here again...the iPhone is fully capable of an extensive level of customizing. Period.

    As far as me being dense...i simply pointed out that the entire thread discusses the ability to customize the iPhone, someone asked what it can't do that the Android can and you spouted off with a bunch of stuff that the iPhone IS in fact capable of, then features of the hardware (if you want to go there, prepare for a very long list on the iPhone side). I think you're upset because you know I'm right about the customization abilities of the iPhone, so instead of focusing on the stuff you knew id come back on, you had to go start listing physical attributes of an android handset...

    You people act like a jailbreak is brain surgery...something that is simply out of the realm of capabilities for anyone besides the most seasoned user. That is simply hilarious.

    Now go take some midol sweetheart. Calm down.

    What agenda is that? All I hear you doing is spouting off every time someone says you can't customize an iPhone. Funny how anytime someone in any given thread disagrees with you, you start in on them having an agenda. I think you are the one with an agenda here......

    The question in the original post didn't have to do with whether the iPhone was capable of these things, it was, will Apple loosen up and allow these things. I'm not arguing the fact that the iPhone isn't capable of these things because as a jailbreaker I have these things now and am fully aware that it is. Now I will debate on whether or not Apple will allow them as I fully believe they won't, period. If they were going to, Apple would have incorporated a lot of these features into iOS a LONG time ago.


    You people act like a jailbreak is brain surgery...something that is simply out of the realm of capabilities for anyone besides the most seasoned user. That is simply hilarious.
    "YOU PEOPLE", really, Sean? I don't think I even implied that anyone "couldn't" or simply "weren't" capable of jailbreaking their iPhones IF they wanted to. I suspect that a lot of people are quite happy with the iPhone the way it is currently and also don't know what they are missing as far as customizing goes if they have never used another platform.



    Now go take some midol sweetheart. Calm down.
    Tell ya what, I'll take a midol just as soon as you get back on your Adderall , bro....

    I mentioned in a prior post that you and I agreed on this, Sean. Also, I'm not sure how or why this got out of hand but I'm willing to drop it since we are technically on the same side of the fence on this topic.

    Have a nice weekend.

    I'm in totally agreement with you on that.
    People have this false sense that a jailbreak is going to damage their phone, primarily because misinformed and uneducated people spread rumors about it that are simply BS.
    For the most part, I agree, but there are risks and for a lot of people, the term, "jaibreaking" does not inspire confidence...lol

    Hell, my mom, who is a complete tech retard has her iPhone jailbroken and is a pretty seasoned user of Cydia now, showing me a pretty awesome home screen layout she setup the other day that i didn't think her capable of. That tells me this "majority wouldn't blah blah blah" is a load of crap.
    I hear ya, but, as you've stated above, until they grasp the concept of jaibreaking, the majority will maintain a stock device, in my opinion. Personally, my iPhone 4S is not jail broken and I have no intent to jailbreak it. Not because I'm afraid to do so because I'm not. After rooting my Android devices and customizing them every way they could be customized, I simply don't have the desire to do so with my iPhone. Anyway, I apologize for the slow reply. I'm reading "The Third Option" by Vince Flynn on my Nook Touch ereader and I'm almost at the end. Great book, by the way.
