I don't think that's the same thing. Many companies include those, or send them out. They are marginally useful.

But, receiving a phone call, where you can respond, hopefully, with more than a yes, no, or some number, would be helpful.

If this were a general thing it would be posted on every Apple news website.

How soon after you bought the iPhone did you receive the email and what questions were they asking you?

I bought the phone on Saturday and I think the email came on Monday the following week, (not two days after).

It asked specific questions about the iPhone's features. It also asked what would I change, etc...

Seems odd to send a survey like that after only a week. You would have better feedback after using it for over a month.

But no I didn't receive an online survey.

I would love to see a bored Apple programmer place a Windows ini file on the iPhone. Oh what rumors would develop..

I am sure they did that too! Just not with the same random sample.

No, that doesn't work either for the example I gave above. It still offers me "Did you mean..." and the addresses in Indiana. My point is, this isn't fool prove. If they added a proper "business search" to the iPhone it would be a plus in my mind. Plus, I find Google's listings to be somewhat inaccurate and often out of date compared to say, Superpages.com.

Given the versatility, ease, and convenience of the iPhone, I can live with limitations such as "somewhat" and "often."

My shopping habits for goods and services generally do not include -- and can do without -- fly-by-night joints whose customer presence is dependent on the world knowing their rapidly changing coordinates on a real-time basis. (In the event that it is a particular good or service that I do desperately need which I cannot find out by a simple phone call, I can also usually find alternatives -- e.g., a Dunkin Donuts instead of a Starbucks for my espresso).

I'm not, the fact I bought an iPhone and didn't return it is all the market research they will need from me.

I just figured it was a typical initial quality survey. Perhaps they'll send another this week now that it's been a month...

Does anybody else find many of these widgets a "waste of space"? I think they all look very cool, BUT there are some apps that would come in more handy. Seeing the list of POSSIBLE new apps really bugged me because I think there are already enough apps that I don't use.

If you are going to clog my iphone with actual apps, make them useful or let me remove them or hide them.

I maybe could see the translation app being useful if you were visiting another country, but the iPhone will not work yet anywhere else.\

com.apple.unitconverter
com.apple.widget.phonebook
com.apple.widget.translation
com.apple.widget.worldclock
com.apple.mobile.radio

From names it is possible to assume, that the first of them represents the converter of various units of measurements, the second widget - address books variant, the third widget for translation of text, the fourth - World time.

The biggest attention atract the fifth widget - Mobile radio. Certainly, to receive FM-radio it would be quite good, but, most likely, it is about a support of Internet radio, which is present for a long time in iTunes.
