The fact you can access your NAS has nothing to do with the restriction discussed here.
You don't have to use iTunes to update filenames etc. so what if I can't do it on device. Lol. It doesn't matter. You are more than welcome to fiddle around with files names. I just want to enjoy my content. Accessing my NAS sold not be thrown out because the fact is I can still access my content. Regardless if I can drag & drop. You want to discredit it because it's not your way of accessing content. Whatever, point blank is that I can access my files. Period & end of story. People just try to find ways to say that you can't access files or do what you want with them. That is complete & utter BS. Whether you like it or not I can still do what I want with my files. I know it upsets most people to thi k that, but they should really get over it. Btw, it's not just the 4S that use wifi to transfer files. I'm not trying to argue anything, only stating the facts. I really don't know what's so hard to understand what it is about it. Maybe I'm misunderstanding everyone else. & I totally apologize if I do. But I've done my research. I use devices extensively & I can assure I know what I'm talking about. If I'm wrong, then i'm humble enough to admit that I'm wrong & again I apologize.

There are wifi HDD's btw, that you can use to access files and share that HDD with other users. So really the SD card issue is a mute point. There is also a device that plugs into an iOS device that you can use SD cards for additional storage and read from them just as you would with any other device. I'm not talking about the camera connection kit either.

There's a few to get you started.
Or you can just buy a device with expandable storage and save money and head aches.

Maybe we are misunderstanding you. So answer this, without iTunes, wireless sync, or a third party app how do you access photos(not to view but for archive) taken on you phone or iPod?

Why does it matter? I can still access my photos & do as I want with them. How would you do it on any other device. Connect it to a computer. Move it to a folder, etc? What's the difference? I move it to a folder & archive it on my computer or an external HDD, upload it to Flickr, picasa, FB (these are all archiving services). I don't understand what you're getting at.

You cut your lawn one way, I cut it the other way. Guess what? We are still cutting lawns.

Next....

To my knowledge there is an exception for photos taken with the device. This part is not restricted.

What's the connection with what I said? I was talking about replacing an SD card with another SD card. If you had a 4GB one for example and you think that you need more space, you could get an 8Gb (or 16, or 32, depending how much more space you need).

Personally, I love to customize my stuff. I don't want my phone to look like every other phone. I love that I can use different launchers and all kinds of other custom things with my android. I find iPhones all look the same, which is too boring for me.

I also hate itunes. Like hate it. I want to just drag and drop. That's it.

I have a Galaxy phone and I love it. I am pretty confident that I will get another when I upgrade. I like other Android phones, but I love my Sammy more than any HTC or other android I have played with (my husband has an HTC).

Isn't that the point --- he couldn't cut the lawn his way. With an iDevice he has to cut the lawn in a certain way, and that way usually isn't very efficient. iOS is geared towards cutting down the learning curve, not towards working quickly. Turn Wifi on and off again on your iphone --- 6 clicks. I would have to do that at least 6 times a day. So for me the lack of widgets alone is reason enough to stay away. You can't change things to operate your way. Of course, if your way is the iWay then you are doing great --- but we are not all working the same way.

Same here. What an utter piece of s**t. Was I glad when I could fill my iPod with wjnamp and uninstall that bloatware. For the record, I bought the iPod on craiglist as my car has a dock - God forbid my hard earned cash went to apple's coffers.

The reason the iPod was successful in the first place was because of iTunes (even though it's feeling its age now, I think). And the reason iTunes was so much better than what went before was because it didn't have drag and drop. Drag and drop is a horrible solution when you have thousands of songs, especially with a lot of random singles. Also, it worked much better than the other music managers out there at the time, most of which were pretty much an afterthought.

The only reason my wife and i eventually got ipods and iphone. were because of our experiences with other non android devices before, we both bought Zune mp3 players that were 1st generation when microsoft released a 2nd generation shortly later with no announcement or anything and the new firmware update bricked everyones 1st generation zune for 4 months (no jokes) and the official response was tuff luck.

Also my wife had owned 3 generations of Windows based smart phones from starcom, to motorola to htc trying to replace her palm pda that she love .. those windows phones were a buggy crashy mess... so she got an iphone because at the time it worked... we got the ipods because at the time it worked.

Ill be honest android wasnt ready and stable enough untill gingerbread came out for us to finaly move away from apple. i like android now but untill then there was nobody better than idevices and thier OS.

Sony has great mp3 line of walkman players. It's just media normally associates "walkman" with ancient tape device and Sony didn't spend much money on advertising.
