I'm addicted to my blackberry. I use it more for the other "stuff" than the phone. I have 16 saved WiFi settings.

I wonder how many of those people have the Touch or the iPhone.

Ok I don't have one but let's say if I had one I'd use it for playing the apps and using the internet.

i don't have an iphone, but i barely make any calls with my ordinary cellphone. i don't see that changing when i upgrade later in the year.

i do have an ipod touch, i listen to music with it more than anything else, but around the house it's a really useful gadget to look up stuff on the net without having to get a laptop and stuff.

I use my phone for texting more than anything else. According to my bill from last month, I used 176 minutes, sent 1764 texts and received 1681 texts.

I've made and recieved a total of 4 calls on my Blackberry so far. Otherwise it's just been for texting and taking pictures.. and internets now too.

I still have the basic RAZR, and even I use this thing as more of a techno gadget than a phone. Text messaging mostly, and, for some reason, the alarm clock has become an essential part of my life :P

Don't really see the problem with using our new gadgets this way though. I never liked talking on phones too much anyway.

Blackberry App World is the best! I have Pandora, Call manager. an app that checks flight and travel info, one that combines msn, aol and jabber. Messenger is great and RxPro helps me every day. As a person with both cardiac disease and diabetes in the family I have apps to help with my fitness and health regimes as well.

I use it as a phone as I have no landline. I barely have any apps on it at all, I don't have time to fiddle around with games and whatever else is on there. I use it primarily for calls and text messaging and I use the email function quite a lot too.

I have no idea how anyone listens to music on that thing, the battery life is atrocious.

Question for those that own the iPhone; how much is your monthly bill?

right now my ATT bill is around 150, I think


of course, 60 of that is for a wireless usb for my laptops, I use about once a month.

before I got it,
I think I was paying around 85,
with roll over minutes, I can really talk as much as I want.

I may only have a 2000 a month text plan. I rarely text.

I pay $60/month but I only have 300 weekday minutes + unlimited evenings (after 6 pm) and unlimited weekends. However I'm only getting 1 GB of data...the main reason for that is that since the firm provides unlimited data on the Blackberry (Bold), there is little incentive for me to have a huge data plan on my personal phone.
