1) Proper support on all three major OSes (that's OsX, Linux and Windows in that order) for USB file transfers. I really like the phone but it is simply incredible that there is no way of transferring files from/to the phone on OsX without installing specialist software or turning on developer mode on the phone. This is a really really basic feature and should work immediately out of the box. You plug the phone in and the SD card pops up as an external disk without having to install anything.

2) The OS update available message really needs to stop popping up after the OS has been updated. I've been using 1.3.8 since it came out and regularly see the update available message. This just creates an aura of unreliability around the software.

3) General polishing of the OS. This is one of those things that separates really good software from average software. Things like having separate controls for haptic feedback between pulley menus and the virtual keyboard (link), being able to define separate signatures to email accounts (link), being able to open or navigate to the pulley menu quickly from the bottom of a page or long list of things.

[1.0.4.20] The changelog for the 1.0.4.20 update mid March says that MTP now shows the memory card, and works with iPhoto on Mac. This is true, but does not fix the issue. The camera does not store images on the SDCARD so all that shows up in iPhoto is an empty folder. Furthermore the sdcard itself does not show up in Finder or Disk Utility, this is not a fix for USB file transfers on OSX.

[1.0.7.18] I just noticed that the iPhoto sync has started working. USB connection (PC connection, no dev mode) opens iPhoto, which loads all pictures from the device. Works at least on iPhoto 9.5.1 and 8.1.2 running on 10.9.3 and 10.6.8 respectively. Haven't seen any mention of this in the release notes.
