I’ve been growing more disgruntled with my iPhone 4 running iOS 4.2.1. In fact, it’s specifically with the e-mail features where things are lacking.
My main gripe is about how the system doesn’t allow or have functionality to use multiple signatures. So when I reply from my personal account, it will auto-insert signature 1, and when I reply to a work e-mail it will use signature 2, or when I have an e-mail open I can switch the signature.
The closest thing I can do is have a few different items in the “notes” app – one for each signature – then copy and paste each time. Talk about the worst work-around ever!
There isn’t even a jailbroken cydia app that I’ve found any reviews online about that can enable this function. Now that Apple has removed their Jailbreak check, I would be tempted to ‘break it if only there was an app that provided what I’m looking for.
Blackberries can do it. Android phones can do it.
I’ve submitted the request a number of times to Apple, and it has yet to make it’s way in to the software releases.
I love the apps and the interface. Yes, I know the iPhone is more about the entertainment than the enterprise. But Apple is attempting to break into the corporate market – adding Exchange capabilities is what really got them in.
There is no way that I’m the only one looking for this feature.
Are you looking for this function? Is there any other function that you’d like?
I do recognize the utility of having multiple signatures but it’s a small annoyance in the grand scheme of things overall.
As I noted, I’ve test driven a Torch and Captivate for a few months before my Iphone4 and I’d go so far as saying I’d almost take my prior 3G over either of the other two.
The Captivate browser is a deal breaker in itself and the UI is no where near as intuitive. Apps..well, let’s not even go there.
As for the Captivate, I would liken the experience to that of the apple vs pc. The seamlessness of having hardware and software in one set of hands is undeniable. Consider the fact that Google announces the release of its native Gingerbread Nexus phone by Samsung while users like myself were still waiting for the previous Froyo firmware update. Even then different phone providers release at different stages and when they do, the release is fraught with bugs. ( try googling ‘Froyo Msc thunder’)
The Android doesn’t allow you to combine multiple emails as u can with Apple via ‘all inbxes’. Accordingly, it also doesn’t allow you the ability to select a return email address when replying in the case where u have multiple email accounts. In other words you have to initially select the account to view and reply from on an individual basis.
As far as iPhone wishlist goes, I’m anxiously awaiting google group contact synchronization.
No phone is perfect, but iphone4 is best, at least among 3 noted above.
My apologies, the 3rd paragraph should have made reference to the Torch browser being a deal breaker etc, not the Captivate
So on the Android there’s no unified inbox?
How does it handle the multiple signatures?
Do you still have the phones? I’d love to meet up and give the email a test run…
