    I can't believe this the iOS is one of the best mobile OSes out there and yet at this day and age i cannot attach any file to my email such as an image or an audio? this is appaling?

    I googled how to do this but I read that you can't do it Apple prevents this so you cannot transfer media and have to buy from the iTunes store

    I am baffled that such a simple and essential feature is missing from my email app what the heck

    You can attach a photo to an email. You must select the photo(s) from the camera roll First, click the curved looking arrow and the email option appears.
    If its a preexisting email, you got to camera roll press and hold the photo, select copy, go to email and select paste.

    You can email whatever type of file you want from an iPhone. Just use an app such as DroxBox.

    And you can email a photo right from the Mail app. Just tap, then when you see the cut copy paste, there is an arrow on the right. Tap it and you get an option to add a photo.

    Gotta admit, it woulda been nice if Apple had included a manual with the less obvious features explained.

    How true. Even the user guide included as a link on the phone through safari is somewhat lacking.

    Huh? Of course you can. See what RoofMonkey said. I use the copy and past feature all the time.

    I had to tell someone about the UG just the other night. They didn't know it even existed.

    I wish that there was more interactive user guides.
