    Original iPhone and 6S+, actually surprised the original turned on.

    I remember being the first one out the door with the new original iPhone at my chosen AT&T store on launch day in 2007. I was a little taken aback when the line burst into cheers and applause. :D

    Reading through those old emails and texts is pretty hilarious, and reminds me of good times. Amazing how far these phones have come. I remember sitting at the bar so excited we could pull up espn.com in like 2 minutes.

    You are correct. It was basically dialup.

    Damn, I really forgot how bad and cheesy iOS looked prior to v7. o_O

    I still have a brand new screen for my RAZR around here somewhere. Of course, I haven't had the RAZR phone for about ten or eleven years.

    I miss those days, actually pretty sad how little Apple has improved. Not much at all.

    Not as cheesy as one of my first themes on the original iPhone. :D

    No, being honest. We can't even after all these years change the SMS bubble colors. It's pathetic really. My jailbroken 3GS had better features than a new iPhone today.

    Sorry your expectations are so low.

    Customization ≠ Better. Not saying customization isn't good. But you using it at a barometer to compare phones is dumb imo

    Stuff like 'changing SMS bubble colors' just isn't very high on Apple's priority list, I guess. :rolleyes:
    The improvements to iOS and iPhone in general during the last years are massive. Two different worlds, really.

    Imo your opinion is dumb. A iPhone 7 can't even give us some of the basics a flip phone could do back in 96. Seriously??? Give us some options to personalize our $1000+ phones. I was just pointing out one little thing out of many things an iPhone still can't do but should after all this time. I expect more innovation after all this time.

    Name them? What can't an iPhone do that a flip phone could?

    Massive? Lol OK still doesn't compare at all to jailbroken features that have been out for years. The improvements you speak of that have been so massive are what exactly?
    --- Post Merged, Sep 11, 2016 ---
    A basic phone back then had a least a couple themes. iPhone still doesn't.

    You could also have your own ringtones easily.

    And all you can list are themes and different colored bubbles? They have nothing to do with innovation.

    Okay, I see what you are, name nothing. A theme, really? You are entitled to your opinion and I will respect you opinion, but saying Apple hasn't improved much at all since the original iPhone 9 years ago is ludicrous. I have no idea why a theme matters to you, but just stick to android. I use both, I enjoy both, but I don't feel the need to trash one platform on a forum. Use what you like, get over it.
