It really does not matter
It does not matter that Apples phone sucks balls on the reception end. All people want are applications that do things like count their friends, look up movies and tell them where they lost their car.
Which is fine, really.
I do not own an iPhone. But, most people using them don’t really give a shit .Infact, I am not entirely certain iPhone (or even apple for that matter) know that they are even selling a phone.
