Anybody still sporting a ROKR?
It seems a though we don't have an iTunes phone thread anymore, so I guess here is good enough. Basically my question is, is there anybody here that still has a ROKR or another "iTunes phone"? Or have you all come to the conclusion that they sucked and switched to an iPhone or stand-alone iPod?

As an iPod, the iTunes ROKR-E1 is... well you know. I don't really think of it as an iPod. It's what it is. A novelty. Fun! Different... and crippled to 100 songs, jeez. It's hard to pick so few. I change the list maybe every four months and put mostly old faves and things that by trial and error don't sound too bad on the speaker out. I use it like a radio in the kitchen while making lunch sometimes. With the clatter of food prep, I don't notice the sound isn't stellar quality.
I was annoyed that it had a micro audio out jack. The camera works great for a cell cam and offloads easily into iPhoto. Sync of the music via itunes is certainly simple enough. The screen has held up great, zero scratches, I don't know why because it's not been babied.
I actually think the candy bar shape is cute, I never had a candy bar phone before that one. I use the airplane mode a lot because I drive through areas where otherwise a cellphone eats a lot of juice dropping and trying to pick up the towers in mountainous terrain. I let it find the network when I get to where I know there's ATT coverage. But the phone's regular menu sucks, I can never remember where I found things I want to use once in awhile. Don't like the contacts handling. Don't care for that typical wiggly little Moto style charger tip, but I do like how the wallwart prongs fold in.
