I am really mad that such basic features are either missing or non existent in Apple's great iOS! the iPhone is my first Apple product but things like the trouble I had with switching my iTunes store account frmo the UAE one to the USA being harder than builing a time machine...and now this..

I have spent the past hour reading online threads of similar issue but the solutions they mention for me to select my IMAP subscribed folder to Inbox is not there in my settings so I am assuming those are outdated settings.

how on earth do I get my iCloud and Gmail folder to be displayed?

Not that man but I am an advanced cell phone user I consider myself and am very tech savvy and it took me an hour of reading online and fiddling around with the phone till I found it

I mean was the developer drunk when he decided to put the email folders under Accounts rather than e-mail?


Switching your account from one country to the other is a nightmare, had to change my address, credit card details, phone number, and was getting session expired errors...email Apple, they send me some bullshit FAQ instructions that are outdated and are not relevant to the current iTunes section and they wouldn't change my account for me manually...it took me like 3 days just to switch my country and start downloading my apps!

Going back to BlackBerry the moment the Q10 hits the market!

Unless you are staring at the unified inbox.

Better brace yourself, BB10 has unified just about everything.
I'm looking at one now, what the hell are texts and twitter updates doing in my inbox?
