One more thing?


  1. I just hope that there is an alternate ring feature that allows a “generic” ring to take place of the custom ring if you happen to get a call while listening to music. I would hate to miss a call because I didn’t recognize the ring as an incoming call.

    Also, I’d like the option of ring/vibrate, in addition to ring or vibrate.

  2. What do you mean “While not mentioned in any of the reviews?” Read today’s USA Today. The writer had the device for 2 weeks, and he specifically states this issue as a feature he wants to see on the phone. It would seem to be a no-brainer to make it free if you’ve already bought the song! I know…rumors!

  3. Frankly, I’d much rather have support for closed captions in the newest version of iTunes than ringtone conversion. I’m sorry, but when I’m in a restaurant and I hear a badly distorted version of some crappy song ring out, I wince. I’d rather hear a simple ring or alter tone.

    Closed captioning for video downloads is a serious matter for the 20 to 40 million Americans who need captions for some of all of their entertainment viewing. In addition to the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities, there are those just learning English, and those who just want to enjoy TV and video without having to have earphones on, or while in noisy conditions.

    Please Apple. Fix this now!
