    Prior to the iPhone 4, iPhone cameras were pretty horrible. I certainly don't miss that.

    No App Store, copy and paste, multitasking, wallpapers, notification center or control center? Only EDGE data speeds? I REALLY don't miss that.

    There are things I don't like about iOS 7, it's too bright and kinda ugly. And the iPhone 5s is a little too fragile. But I'd take it over iPhone OS 1, and the original iPhone.

    If you really like iOS 1, this person has managed to recreate it, in a sense. You'd just have to be jailbroken first.

    No MMS, no cut/copy/paste, no app store, EDGE (2G), max 8GB of storage, 1/4 the pixels, smaller display, required headphone adapter for third-party headphones, less efficient Bluetooth, slower WiFi.

    I get nostalgia, but I'm gonna have to go with grumpy cat and say no.

    Yeah I hate having LTE, DND, big screen, HD, awesome design, multitasking, larger capacity, more ram, larger battery, better camera, flash, panorama, GPS, Touch iD.... Yeah, I really miss the OiPhone and it's total lack of ability to do much more than surf the web and make phone calls when compared to today's iPhone.

    Simplicity does not always equate into pleasant user experience.

    I'd hate to give up multitasking, cut/paste both of which apple was late to the party. Apps is why I use the iPhone and no app store on the iOS 1 makes its a very limited smart phone.

    How does anyone know if this iPhone 1 was really singed by Steve Woz and not some replica of his signature and the seller is just trying to make some money. Is there a picture associated when Woz signed or document ?

    The original iPhone on iOS 1 was like barely one step up from a feature phone, why would anyone miss it.

    Sorry to bring up this really old thread, but I agree with you. I like the simplicity. iOS today is pretty much the same thing, but loaded with more features. That's not always a good thing. Think back to Mac OS 9. Just System 1, but more features and people complained about the piece of "spaghetti code" the Mac OS had become. I think iOS is having the same problem, and Apple is going to need a completely rewritten iOS in a few years, just like OS X. I know many people will disagree with me, but this is my opinion.

    Got this phone in May 2009.

    HTC Touch Pro, Windows Mobile 6.1. Over three years I modified it to run Sense 2.1 w/Weather as well as making it able to upload to Facebook and Youtube. Plenty of apps. First phone I had that did internet, SMS and Picture Mail.

    Now here's the thing…I recall posting on my Facebook wall just how dumb it was that the iPhone couldn't do cut and paste and MMS (Picture Mail). Did you get that?

    A 2009 HTC phone was doing cut and paste and MMS before it was ever available to the iPhone.

    One of the reasons I never jumped on the iPhone the moment it came out. It was ridiculous the STANDARD stuff it COULDN'T do until much later.

    Sorry. Not interested in THAT experience.
