The poor guy in the support thread can't attach multiple files to an email. And yes given several expensive workarounds but no solution apart from buying an android phone.

I still use Bluetooth for file transfers. IM apps vant./don't support file transfers.

Apple could not solve caller id of contacts name yet, use xperia z you will see how it identifies all numbers while receving a call and shows call waiting of other party

I wish android was quick and easy like apple. I hate having to wait months for 1 update and fixes nothing. apple addresses their problems and puts up a patch right away unlike apple.

I cannot believe that a OS that runs on 5-6 devices has such huge and dangerous bugs.
But they put a lot of effort to prevent device jailbreaking and carrier unlocking... Apple, you will rot.

We can't do nothing, we just have to play with it. Why the price in US is cheaper wile euro is higher than dollar?

Apple can't even fixed this simple bug. This bug is discovered in 2010. Now we're living in 2013. I think it's a feature not a bug. Apple said there are 200 more features in ios6 and nobody know what are those features, maybe this is one of those 200, lol.
