    Am I the only one annoyed with iPhone's inability to get the . (period) syntax correct?

    In English, when you end a sentence with a quote, the period goes inside the quotation marks. Bobby said, "would you please kick the soccer ball to me." The iPhone doesn't understand this so when you add two spaces after the quote, the iPhone forces a period after the quote. Alex said, "this...

    Can we please stop calling the 6th gen iPhone the iPhone 5? It should be called iPhone 6 or 4G.

    Why does everyone call the next gen iPhone the iPhone 5? Why should the 6th gen iPhone be called the iPhone 5? Yes, I'm upset about this 4s iPhone not being the iPhone 5 , but Apple didn't call the second generation iPhone the iPhone 2, and they didn't call the third the iPhone 3. The iPhone...

    Missing pieces of history

    Okay I have an experiment for you. 1) Browse in your iDevice's Safari for awhile. *Maybe an hour. 2) Open up bookmarks then the history folder. 3) See that your iDevice did NOT keep a complete record of your entire browsing session. 4) Notice that it DID however keep SOME of your history from...

    Am I the only person who is unsatisfied with restoring as a solution to problems?

    I don't mean to sound like a troll (I'm really not.) but does anybody else think it's odd that the go-to solution for most iDevice problems is to restore the device? Isn't this a case of the cure being worse than the disease? I'm a PC user myself so I don't know... is it NORMAL if your Mac has...

    How is it that I'm the only person who loses his pages in Safari?

    This has happened to every iPhone I've owned. And I've had an iPhone since iday, several in fact. Actually I'm on my 10th. (Many hardware failures and upgrades included. Plus a broken screen. But mainly due to hardware failure.) Anyway, the problem... Safari will crash and I'll reopen it...

    Are there any apps to turn your iPhone into a *REAL* mouse?

    I HATE trackpads on laptops. Soooo frustratingly sloow and tedious to use! But I don't want to lug around a mouse everywhere. Are there any apps designed to turn the iPhone into a mouse? All of the ones I've seen are trackpads, even though they are titled "mouse." Aaaaarg! WHY would anyone...

    Why does iTunes STILL autosync?

    I have all of the appropriate checkboxes marked and unmarked telling iTunes to STOP syncing automatically but it still does. It doesn't "sync" but it tells me it's syncing. It doesn't transfer data but it does do stuff. It locks my screen and I have to slide to cancel the sync. It didn't use...

    All of a sudden.. Charging is not supported with this accessory. Didn't even unplug.

    I had my 3GS plugged into my computer all night long... charging fine. I pressed the home button without even moving the phone. I didn't unplug it and immediately the lock screen switched to that annoying yellow exclamation point. I've been having trouble with this lately so I googled the...

    If I exchange my 3GS right now will I get an OTB 3GS with iOS4?

    Am I likely to get stuck with the new iOS4 and never be able to JB again? Or might I get a jailbreakable (with spirit) 3.1.3? My warranty is expiring in 2 months and my 3Gs has issues that would allow me an exchange (display issues). I can live with the display issue but I might only have a...

    How do I find out where iTunes thinks missing files are?

    I have several hundred "missing" files in my iTunes library but they are all actually on the computer. But I don't remember where the were previously. I add dozens of songs at a time to my library all the time and there is no Earthly way for me to constantly remember where they were before. I...

    How do I get Email app to properly put in correct From address?

    What the heck? I have a professional gmail account forwarding to my main non-professional personal gmail account. *It's so much more convenient to not have to check two accounts. *But I often need to reply to the emails, but I CAN NOT have my return address be my smartalx account name...

    Ok so how on Earth do you use this case opener anyway?

    I need to replace my glass so I bought a kit. It came with a case opener. I follow the videos but they must already have the case opened and are only going through the motions when they demonstrate the usage of their case openers. I can NOT figure out how to get my big thick case opener into...

    How do you find out if you purchased something before?

    I want to download the Grocery Gadget app that I had a few months ago, but there are two versions now... a free one and one that cost's $5 now. According to appshopper.com the paid version was available for free at one time but I'm not completely sure if I actually downloaded that one before...

    Friend needs to switch to AT&T now but wants the V3 iPhone.

    I have a friend who is dying to jump on the iPhone bandwagon. She wants to wait for the new one, but her verizon phone is on its last leg. She really needs a new phone now. She can get out of Verizon's contract now with no ETF so she could theoretically sign up for AT&T now, but then... 1)...

    Video converted for iPhone is 2.5 times BIGGER than original file!

    I downloaded an mp4 video (legally) that was about 65mb. I brought it into iTunes, which played it beautifully. I tried to put it onto my iPhone and it said my iPhone won't play it. Fine. So I "converted" it by going to the Advanced menu in iTunes and creating an iPhone version. iTunes...

    Safari Privacy Issue: How do you clear the Google search dropdown?

    When you enter something in the Google search field, the iPhone keeps a record of that search for awhile in case you want to pull it up again. Handy. But what if you don't want your girlfriend seeing that you searched for "diamond engagement rings?" How do you clear that list of suggestions?

    Did you notice how snappy the iPhone is on the commercials?

    My iPhone is freaking slow, buggy, and it crashes and locks up on an hourly basis. If I go to the Apple store and complain, they point to my 6 pages of apps and tell me, "you have too many apps, of course it's going to be slow." The iPhone in this commercial has 8 pages of apps, yet...
