            • Better podcast support

              Podcast support is poor (at least for those of us outside the US).

                                    • Better Search Options for Locally stored music on phone

                                      There's currently no way to search music stored in music hub, one has to go through the jump list rather than just typing in Song

                                      • FM radio transmitter

                                        Make the phone able to transmit in FM so you can play your own music in your car stereo.

                                        • Volume Control on the screen instead of just the physical button

                                          I agree with the easy of use of physical volume buttons on the phone. But there are many times when it is even easier, quicker and more comfortable to use the onscreen volume control. Just like the iphone, they also have the physical volume rocker and the onscreen volume control. I don't think iphone user would use more often the physical buttons than the one on the software.
