Does the remote/mic work with the first generation iPhone?

I have been considering getting a used first generation iPhone, simply because I love the look of it, but I've grown so attached to these headphones and the use of the remote/mic that I really don't want to give it up. If it isn't supported, is there a way to bring that ability to the first generation?

    The only thing that won't work is the volume up/down. The mic and middle button work.

  • Yes, and no :-) (ie: not _all_ the functions work, but most will)
