iPhone Gripes

ok so i picked up an iPhone on friday, no i didn’t stand in line like some fan boy. I’m already giving apple my money but i don’t need to give them my time as well, i may be crazy but i’m not stupid. Overall i’m pretty pleased with it so far and its a big improvement over my previous phone, but i do have a few issues with it thus far. Keep in mind most of these can be solved with updates since it is all just software.
