    I've got a Nexus One. I rarely use it as a phone -- frankly it's more of a "web browser while I'm waiting for the train" kind of thing. So on the smartphone bit, I guess I'm one of those people who really doesn't have much use for a cell phone, but the portable internet, kindle app, etc. are nice. Mostly I got it because AT&T was raising my landline price (again) and it got to the point where a cell/data plan was only a little bit more, so I went ahead and cancelled the landline and got my first cell phone last summer .

    I have an iPhone. It's quite nice and with the exception of chatrooms, can do virtually everything that I use computers for.

    I think I'm the last person in the world to not have a smart phone. I have a "regular" phone, a Nokia something-or-other that can text and surf the web if I want it to, but I rarely use the Internet. I don't figure I need a smart phone- I don't need to access the internet every minute of every day.

    You would be right. They try and sell you on those little keyboards and bigger screens making it easier to go online and simply it doesn't. I can't be bothered trying to deal with it and will just wait until I get home.

    This. I don't need to watch a video on some tiny screen. I'll wait til I get home.

    Though I do think the little keyboards are cute. But I'm so used to texting on the numberpad!

    It's a Palm Pre.



    The official excuse is that, as a freelancer, I have to be able to not only make and receive calls but also read and send e-mail anytime anywhere. So I use it both as a phone and for on the road internet access (to regularly check my mail, against boredom or to find schedules, opening hours, adresses, google maps and other stuff that is actually helpful when you are going somewhere)

    Among friends and family you will find a mixture of stone age phones and posh iPhones with little in between.

    I-phone. I got I-phoned by my INTJ though for efficiency purposes so I'm told, otherwise I'd never have gotten it. Still, I love it. Awesome user-friendliness and pretty buttons. In contrast, the phone it replaced was the cheapest nokia I could get my hands on like 6 months before that as I'd lost my old nokia of 10 years old (which caused my INTJ to cringe every time he saw it )

    phone first data means that you can get on the internet on your phone, but it isn't a smart phone (mostly you can get on a few sites, check facebook and send e-mails... it's not all that fast and you don't have access to the entire internet, but you have the internet!) sorry... I forgot that I needed to explain that

    and my excuse for having a smart phone is that I needed one for work because I have to pull up web pages and send e-mails out in the field all of the time... and the GPS is kind of useful too... especially for someone who occasionally misplaces thier car
