What do you want to see in the iPhone update?

Posted: 01:03 PM ET

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Apple will unveil its iPhone 3.0 software Tuesday."]
Apple is scheduled to make an iPhone announcement Tuesday, and you may have seen the reports from Fortune and others: Kevin Rose of Digg says the iPhone 3.0 software will support copy and paste (finally!!!) and bring the phone's feature list up to par with the upcoming Palm Pre.

Rose also cites his source as saying that there will be no background applications for the iPhone, no video and no multimedia messages (MMS) this release.

But hopefully Apple will announce its long-promised iPhone push-notification system (which will make things like instant messaging actually useful).

Of course, we’ll find out exactly what we’ll be getting Tuesday. But speculating about what Apple will do is half the fun, right?

So what iPhone features do you want to see?

Seriously, why aren't you people jailbreaking your iPhones???

I am patiently waiting for a response to that...

Gump619   March 17th, 2009 1:05 pm ET

I just want two things and I'm happy. The first was already mentioned at not being in 3.0 which is the MMS stuff. But if they don't include native support for MMS, why not pass the login/pass to safari when you click the stupid link? It's not realistic to check that stuff if you dont have a piece of paper to write down the info, or another pc. Copy paste will help a little I guess.

Flash has been a LONG time coming too. I remember after it was launched they stated they were working with Adobe on it.

"Seriously, why aren’t you people jailbreaking your iPhones???"

AT&T Death Star, orbiting high above, coud disable all you phones forever
Apple Logo has only one bite taken out, - Why ? –the poision worm ended the jailbreakers enjoyment, permanently ? - These are the real meanings, comply or be disabled. - Your profile will be correlated and uploaded to all the NSA databases - unemployable forever, ex-phone jailbreaker, you are. - Is it worth the risk ? just sludgehammer it, (while no one is looking)

That is the biggest load of crap I've ever laid eyes on. If any of you believe that you are insane. Jailbreak your iPhone with ease of mind that it can't and will never happen.

Geeze I almost fell out of my chair laughing reading that. Talk about paranoia...

Kang   March 17th, 2009 3:58 pm ET

No MMS and No Background Apps. Ehh, they introduced both. Thats what you get for quoting someone from Digg lol.

theshank   March 17th, 2009 4:21 pm ET

But can it open a bottle of your favorite beverage ? No ? In that case I will keep the Swiss Army knife . iPhone is way over hyped and overpriced .

Just say no to the madness.

Allan Turing was profiled, his life tortured, miserable
Left behing an Allple, missng a few bytes
Now the profiling is accurately down to jailbroken phones
Break the jailbars, and the Apple will Eat You !

I think it is almost criminal in this day and age they would skimp, on an under a buck part, like a telecoil adapter... that would make it accessible to the hearing impaired. for shame

Goofy Gore uses an iPhone (an effective, low CO2, fashion accessory)
Orator Obama, no nonsense, down to business, not a strawberry personality

Obama can solve the Guardian Knot of economic confidence ?
Calculate, inspire the bankers, to reach for the stars, and greater bonuses
Not with an iBerry, but with a BlackBerry

Can I ask a question?

Do you guys have good service where you live? Of course I will like to say that location, does matter. Here for example, the service ain't that great, I guess unless if you have Wi-Fi but the only reason I'm asking because sometimes, not all the time, it ain't good. And some of the boys have it and pending where they at, they can send or surf ot not, it depends. It doesn't happen a lot, only as couple of times but "supposedly", we got word from our sources that on the beginning of January, it was gonna be better. Unfortunately we don't wanna find out...

Boy, that iPhone is pretty high-tech, huh? I will admit the applications are pretty cool, I ain't picky and with that stuff they have, it is pretty cool. But come on AT&T!! Don't do our neighborhood bogus...

Loose yout iPhone, if a terrorist finds it, he will be easier to track

alivenbreathing   March 24th, 2009 2:59 pm ET

if Apple would have their developers brainstorm with younger people who are hearing impaired they could corner the market for all ages. I'm a very young 30 years old and I recently obtained Siemens Motion 500 CIC(completely in the canal) hearing aids for $4k+. They work with the iPhone intermittently, but it has its problems (I basically talk into a 'walkie-talkie'). All they would need to do is sit down with individuals who are trying to integrate these technological capabilities into their lives, and I think we could come up with advances that the general population would enjoy as well. Imagine wearing a bluetooth controller no bigger than a spherical quarter that could act as a relay transmitter as well as doubling as a microphone and a controller with a few small buttons; it would be just like the earbuds that come with the iPhone, except completely wireless!!!

ben guerin   May 3rd, 2009 2:29 pm ET

the iphone alarm does not work when the phone is switched off

ben guerin   May 3rd, 2009 2:29 pm ET

When will the iphone allow you to watch videos on, other then youtube??

ben guerin   May 3rd, 2009 2:30 pm ET

why cant the iphone let you delete one number from the call register

May I thank you for adding that astonishing info. I have learned a lot from it. To run a home office is very challenging. One has to be disciplined and work hard, fulfill every task organized and structured in order to overcome all these disturbances and disruptions. To stay organized with my emails I use Email Sorter Wizard, a MS Outlook add-in that helps me to stay organized with my inbox too. Using Email Sorter Wizard is like having a personal email assistant that takes care of a cluttered inbox and gets everything organized. Interesting post and I am sure every reader enjoyed reading it.

As a chopping tool, electric razors are generally equipped with sharp cutters concealed around the interior of your unit. It provides for the hair trimming requirements alongside safety unless you'd like to obtain some facial nicks and cuts. In specific, the interior cutters are concealed possible by a foil or protective cap that tops any shaving unit. In turn, the set of cutters commences the trimming tasks as soon as hair follicles are captured at its best. *`
