Dear Papa Jobs I'd like to see some killer features for the iPhone like cut/copy/paste, SMS forwarding, push notifications, ability for apps to run in the background and all those other features we keep asking for.

want an option included in the upcoming firmeare to be able to delete unusable apps, like SMS, Note, and ringtones that came with the Iphone Os. Apps sucks. Sms touch is better and you dont have to pay for text messaging. Wake up Apple.

@ernest2da, Why wast $5.00 for a app that sends a email to phone in the form of a sms? You do know that you can simply send a email to anybody's cell phone in the form of a sms with the native email app?

You missed the Griffin SmartTalk. For anyone who appreciates their music and spent upwards of $150 on a nice pair of in-ear headphones (I spent $300) this accessory is a must.
