If you can afford an Apple device, you can afford the tolls :-). I like the fact that the Toyota (really Nippon Denso) navigation system in my car lets me set it to avoid highways, avoid tolls, etc. I often use its "Short" route to let me discover new neighborhoods. But the fact is that if I need to be somewhere as quickly as possible, I use Waze. 
I thought it was announced that it was 300 cities in China.
Sad, but true. And I find Siri getting worse and worse lately. It used to give me direct answers much of the time, but now just sends me to a web search for those same queries. And heaven help you if any word in your query matches a movie in current release or a name in your contacts!
How 'bout a hardware Back button? Now where have I seen that before?
"Participating carriers" is the key. The beauty of the current system is that the consumer has full freedom to switch phones or carriers. Contrast this to the CDMA SIM-less system where you are at the carrier's mercy. Oh, you didn't buy a "Verizon" iPhone? Sorry, we won't activate you. So I'm a bit nervous about any system that might limit our abilities as customers.
I sure wish restoring from iCloud would restore saved passwords, including those of Wi-Fi access points.
I'm still waiting to hear Beats 1. When I try to play it, I get:   Unable to play “Beats 1” This station requires OS X 10.9.3 or later.   Huh? What's so special about Beats 1 that it alone out of all the world's stations requires a certain level of the operating system?
$50 for 500 MB over 30 days in India? Is this a joke? When I was there last year I paid $6 for 1 GB over 30 days.
I should have been more clear. It does not back up media you sync to your phone (since it is assumed that the master copies exist elsewhere) but it does back up your camera roll.
No, the iCloud backup does not back up your media.
