    I tried this in another forum, but I wanted to try here to. I have a mytouch 4g which I love as a phone, but I find myself using the wifi tethering and staying on my Ipod Touch 4th gen more. The only thing I use the mytouch for is the phone and texting. The rest for social apps and calendar, notepad, internet, videos, I use the Ipod touch. Anyone else doing this?

    I did a few years ago when I had an old Motorola Q as my main phone, that thing was a nightmare. Now I don't really use an iPod Touch anymore because all smart phones have the same capabilities.

    I still have an old Motorla Razor. Use my touch 1000 times more.

    Definitely! I have the Alias 2 and when I'm at home I don't use my phone that often. I can't even make calls so Whistle phone fills that gap.

    I use my iPod touch over wifi more because I refuse to pay 30 bucks a month for Internet on my phone. I don't even pay that much for my home 18mb cable hsi. Also with wifi being everywhere there are few places I would use it anyway....

    Yup, I like my phone but the iPod is easier to use at home when wifi is available. I have a Palm Pre2 with WebOS. I really like WebOS but it just does not have the apps available that the apple products have and the screen is smaller that the iPod.

    I have a phone, and only use it for emergencies, so yes, I use my iPod more than my phone. And my iPod doubles as a free phone for texting, picture messaging, and calling via Textfree, so I win. :D

    I have a lousy Nokia phone so obviously I use my phone only for stuff my iPod can't. I think the usage of my iPod beats the phone in a ratio of 20:1.

    Nope, because I have an iPhone.
    I always have a feeling of switching to Android, but I bet it will be exactly as the OP said - that I'd be using my iPod more. Whats the point of that? :p

    I use my iPod touch a lot more than my phone. I have a good contract on my current phone so I see no reason to combine the two devices yet. I'm waiting for the iPhone 6.

    Nope

    iPhone use - 80%

    iPod touch - 10 maybe 15%
