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.
