Number one gripe is not being able simply to forward a message. Soooo irritating.
Two is the awful bossiness of iTunes. I want more control over what, how and when I sync. Heaven help you if you don't want the same contacts on your phone and on your PC, and goodness isn't it difficult to get them the same. I can't find a way to replace all contacts on iPhone with contacts on my PC because that option doesn't appear in iTunes - ever. Why do all the manuals and discussion forums tell you you can do certain things in iTunes that you can't - (at least not after days of researching and trying) via certain menus that apparently don't actually exist. It's driving me crazy.
Three, why do all my photos rotate so that when they come back onto my phone they are all sideways!! How dumb is that. I don't want a sideways picture of my son when I'm ringing him. Am I missing something very simple?
I could go on. It's certainly not nearly as easy as I'd been led to believe. iTunes and the iPhone manual have an aura of 'Newspeak' about them - simple because the nformation is just plain not there.
1. I never forward messages, but I do find it strange that it's not possible.
2. What are you talking about? Example?
I believe if you create contact groups, you can select specific groups in iTunes to sync with.
Even before my MobileMe days I did not find it difficult to keep my contacts the same on computer and iPhone... it's rather simple...
3. I've never had this issue. My guess is that your computer automatically flips photos for viewing (I know iPhoto does this) even if the actual file is sideways. I would double check your files.
