Same for me.   I can't bare to give up on it though.  It may not be a 
very useful phone, but I still like it as a device.
I actually feel a bit guilty or disloyal saying that I'm disappointed, 
but the brutal truth is it doesn't make or receive calls as well as my 
first mobile many years ago.   I love the idea of an open source phone, 
and I'm amazed at the effort and creativity of those involved.  I think 
perhaps I was a little naive about how open source stuff gets done.
That said, the process is fascinating too.  I love the emergent aspect 
of a group of passionate creative people.
