    Here are some of mine ...

    1. Not able to delete useless contacts in mail app

    2. Not able to close all open apps at once

    3. No manual settings for equalizer in the music app, all presets settings are worse than the "off" preset

    4. No quick turning bluetooth on/off

    5. Safari is a little better but still "basic" browser

    6. Why not displaying the date next to the clock on top of the screen

    Haven't loaded it yet. I was raised to believe good things are worth waiting for. :)

    Well, I'm really not sure why you're "disappointed". None of those features or improvements was promised or even rumored to be available in iOS 5 (with the possible exception of Safari which was improved). Sounds more like this should be titled "A wish list for future upgrades".

    That said, the email auto-fill issue has been around since the first iPhone and I think everyone agrees that it should be easy to edit.

    Closing all apps at once would be a valuable feature.

    My biggest disappointment with iOS 5 was the "downgrading" of the iPod App to the Music App. There's another thread discussing that on the forum so no need to go into it here. However suffice it to say that the Music App is a true disappointment IMHO.

    Agreed Richsadams

    I would like to see date at the top as well.

    Closing all apps at once would be nice.

    I'd like multi gestures on iPad 1 as a default not have to go in the back door

    I'd like notifications the same on iPad as well as the iPhone.

    Forgot about the original iPad not getting Multitasking Gestures as well as AirPlay Mirroring. That was disappointing indeed. :(

    I really dislike the tabbed browsing for the iPad. I would never have upgraded if I knew I would lose the thumbnails.

    () Overall weakness of the email app. No "select all." No mass delete based on search. etc. I didn't really expect the email app to be upgraded but it would be nice.
    () Abduction of my New Yorker subscription by the Apple version of Publishers Clearing House (i.e. "Newsstand.")
    () The introduction of iCloud has only made the weaknesses and confusion associated with iTunes (and the associated App Store) even more obvious. A complete rewrite is required.

    I'd have a little more faith in that feedback mechanism if "iOS 5" were listed as an operating system option.

    Agreed...that's the standard drop down for their Mac feedback...and it doesn't even have 10.7.2 on it yet. I don't think they're ignoring it though...can't hurt as they say.

    They should've left the iPod app alone. The Music app sucks.

    My main issue is the loss of my AirPrint. It has really made things difficult at work.

    You can read up on what folks dislike about the new Music App from the beginning of this thread. Mostly it's just not nearly as robust as the "old" iPod App. I fully expect Apple to tweak it into shape, but they should have known better than to downgrade any app...folks are expecting more, not less. Besides missing some of the things we had gotten used it the overall UI is just not as user friendly. It's serviceable but it's just a big step down that wasn't necessary IMO.

    Although some have had some issues upgrading to iOS 5 you shouldn't have any worries if you follow the on-screen directions. You know how it is, folks with problems are much more likely to post than folks that didn't. That's not to discredit the issues some people had, but my upgrade and upgrades for millions of others went without a hitch.

    Here's a list of tips to follow prior to your upgrade:

    If you're talking about an iMessage message, that only works between iOS devices running iOS 5 and both parties having iMessage set up. You would have to text or email anyone else.

    That would be nice...but no. iMessage emulates RIM's Black Berry Messenger service which allows folks with BB's to send messages between BB phones at no charge. That doesn't work on iPhones either for the same reasons.

    That doesn't mean you can't send a text in almost exactly the same way...it's just part of your carrier's texting service instead.

    My biggest disappointment is that there are enough unhappy people that I wont be upgrading anytime soon. I realize that the squeaky wheels get the grease kind of thing but the number of people that arent 100% happy, or downright pissed off, cannot be discarded. The other "disappointment" for me is that none of the features are as"must-have" as I thought they would be. Sure, getting rid of the iTunes sync is great and all but then iCloud brings its own set of issues. Many of the app updates and changes are not important to me either. It boasts over 200 features that should make my iPad experience even better than it is already.....except that I dont care for 197 of those features.

    Oh well. Its 4.3.5 for me until further notice. ;)
