ATT surveys iPhone owners

AT&T has inquired with many iPhone owners to explore what features to include on future devices, according to AppleInsider. One section is devoted to the 2.1 firmware update, probing if the customers perceive any enhancement. The survey primarily evaluates satisfaction with AT&T and Apple, although a whole page questions what features or improvements users desire to be included with future iPhones or updates.

Respondents can choose the five features most important to them, including software and hardware enhancements. The list of choices covers several current limitations that have received attention, including text copy and paste, MMS messaging, and support for Flash and Java.

Apple has added new features to each firmware release, although so far it has put any bug fixes at a higher priority. Certain functions, such as directional GPS, have been included in beta versions but not made it into the public updates so far. Although the company is unlikely to produce every item on the list, it is clearly considering the popularity of each feature amongst customers as a factor in future adaptations.

    simple fix on search

    The Magnifying search icon needs to be on the nav bar to the left- so you don't hit "edit" when you go to search. Simple fix.
    MMS pictures and movies, and flash are overdue.

    Look at the screen shot available at the Appleinsider link. The is misspelled in the text directions of the screen shot.

    Or this could make it legit, seeing as I have found numerous misspellings in other AT&T documentation.

    Apple not AT&T

    AT&T is not the only carrier licensed to sell the iPhone so why isn't Apple posting such a discussion on their website?

    Spelling auto-correction

    This "feature" is disgusting. And lack of ability to turn it off is moronic on so many levels!
