Safari on the iPhone 4 flies. And thank God for the iMessage program, so I can stop paying for texts (fucking rip off right there).

Mostly, yeah. Paying for texts (I don't text often to begin without, outside my family, my wife and two close friends) will be cheaper individually now with iMessage.

the message notification function combined with the quick camera make it worth it just for those.

the new notifications from the lock screen don't work the way i'd like them to. i'll probably jail break again just to get lockinfo back.

I can't get my Ipad to upgrade. It downloads the 700mb file then it says its backing up my ipad and it just sits there all day saying "Backing Up".

before i had three collapsable tabs.. one for unread email. one for unread messages, and one for 7-day weather forecast.

i could clear spam without unlocking my phone. also now if you unlock your phone any notications from the lock screen are gone forever. i don't always want to deal with them right away.

basically i would want the notification center to pop up as the lock screen.

Apparently it's been hit-or-miss the last couple days. I'm sure once the initial rush dies down it'll be easier.

It took me almost three hours to do it.

it's the voice control assistant application on the iphone 4s. it is able to parse and analyze natural language to allow the user to ask questions (e.g. "do i need an umbrella today?" yields the response, "looks like rain in your area!" with a local weather report) or perform tasks on the phone like writing text messages, creating appointments or reminders, and a lot of other stuff.

blackberry is going to come back and conquer all!

joking aside, i highly recommend BB10 to anyone who actually uses their phone as a communication device.
