    Here are some of the things we can look forward to on future iphones....

    Apple is billing iOS 7 as “the biggest change to iOS since the iPhone.†The entire interface has been overhauled with a flatter look that replaces all of the life-like textures, with a flatter minimalistic look, as had been rumored. It also features a huge number of new additions.
    Some highlights among the new features Apple unveiled on Monday:

    • UI motion response: Apple’s new UI responds to the device’s movements and creates a 3D effect that moves the perspective and shadows on the screen as the device moves in the user’s hand. The result is an effect that makes it look like the user is looking into 3D environment.
    • The new Mail app now includes gestures to flip from a message back to the inbox view, for example, and swiping messages to the side now includes a two-stage menu.
    • Notification Center is now available on the lock screen
    • Control Center: Apple has finally made settings toggles and other items available from anywhere on the device. Simply swipe up, and Control Center appears on the display.

    • Enhanced multitasking: Apple is opening up multitasking to all apps. iOS 7 will use an intelligent scheduling service to monitor apps and services and only perform background functions when apps need them. Push notifications can also trigger background functions so data is already refreshed by the time an app opens. In addition, there is a brand new multitasking UI.
    • Safari has been overhauled with a brand new interface, a new full-screen more, a smart search field and more.
    • AirDrop: “The easiest way to share with the people around you.†AirDrop is Apple’s Wi-Fi Direct rebranding that allows users to share files over short ranges.
    • Camera: The new iOS camera is four cameras in one — still camera, video camera, panoramic camera and a square camera with Instagram-like filters. There is also an overhauled Photos app that automatically organizes photos instead of keeping all images in one giant camera roll.
    • Siri has a revamped interface and results are displayed in a whole new way. Wikipedia and Bing are now integrated with Siri, and there are several other new features.
    • iOS in the Car: A whole new level of car integration for iOS, that allows auto makes to display iOS on the in-built screens in their cars.
    • The App Store now includes a refreshed UI that matches the rest of the new iOS 7 interface, and it also includes new discovery features that show popular apps based on a user’s location. The App Store will also now update apps automatically.
    • iTunes Radio: Apple’s new music streaming service is built right into the iOS Music app. iTunes Radio includes a number of curated stations and users can create their own custom stations as well. The service also syncs across devices to keep a user’s stations in sync across iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV and Mac devices. The service is free with ads, or it is included in Apple’s iTunes Match service, which costs just $24.99 per year.
    There are a number of other new features in iOS 7, including phone call, FaceTime and Message blocking and more than 1,500 new APIs. iOS 7 beta will be available on Monday for developers and a full public launch is slated for this coming fall.

    Sure, share files via wi-fi but only certain files. Like PDF's or some other nonsense.

    Are you Military??? If so they will unlock ASAP. If not, I'd call them back and make up some sob story about something overseas going on that you need this phone for. The provider unlock is the only way I recommend.
