You May Control the Future of Your iPhone! AT&T Survey Wants Your Opinion

Back in August AT&T sent out a customer satisfaction survey to all iPhone owners. Well now it seems a new survey is being sent out to all of us on the AT&T network asking how the 2.1 firmware is working for us and what we want to see next on your iPhone 3G.

Now don't get too excited yet! Just because they are asking what we want does not necessarily mean we will get it. Keep in mind Apple has stated before that certain features such as copy/paste and directional GPS take a back seat to other issues that need addressing so on and so forth. But it is better than AT&T and Apple flat out ignoring us right? So at least it is a start.

Apple Insider states:

The questionnaire asks owners to pick the top five hardware or software add-ons they'd like to see and include many of the most prominent requests made in the community, including cutting and pasting text, built-in instant messaging, Flash/Java support and MMS messaging.

So when and if you get this survey, be sure to speak your mind and let AT&T what know what you want. This is our chance... they seem to be listening. (Or at least they are pretending to be!)

You May Control the Future of Your iPhone! AT&T Survey Wants Your Opinion


no survey here. I don't really remember getting the other survey either. But bloody hell, give me cut&paste already, and MMS.

apple is avoiding flash because it uses up about 55% more processing power than it does with windows mobile, where it only uses 8%. (Guesstimation.) That's why Steve's all like, "No." and adobe's like, "Come on." And Steve's like, "Go away."...
that and it probably has something to do with Hulu and other sites where I can watch endless movies and video.

Many of these are features that only ATT can provide, such as MMS (which needs ATT to hold your messages until they are forwarded to or from you, in case a recipient is not available)
In fact, they are things ATT would like to SELL you. Such as GPS turn by turn is available on other smartphones on ATT, as a paid network service. They can provide voice recording (to their servers of course, FOR A FEE). Oh god would they ever love to sell you RingTones direct. OMG four dollars for 30 seconds! Thats what they have historically sold for. OH GOD BUY A WHOLE LOTTA RINGTONESSS!!!

ATT will never be able to confine the iPhone strictly to it's service... as long as there are other GSM service providers, there will be a way to use the iPhone on another service.

I'm about to move my accounts to Verizon! I cannot believe that AT&T is withholding the ability to send and receive MMS. The iphone is supposedly the, or one of the most advanced phones on the market and it can't do something that even the cheapest of phones can do in sending/receiving MMS.
I, along with all my iPhone friends are seriously considering handing over the torch :(
