Calling the original iPhone a "piece of crap" based on lack of these features and "poor reception / call quality""”which, again, has more to do with the network than the phone"”seems like a bit of a stretch. Uh, amongst the most well known problems with the original iPhone, were a notoriously shitty internal antenna. Also a really crappy speaker and volume control software, which people had to software hack so that they could hear calls over light to moderate background noise. Matt, wasn't it you who asked me how to fix the volume thing? Or was that someone else?
