    Hey everyone! This is my first post. I don't need a phone since i am with verizon wireless till October. I want to either get an iphone or an ipod touch to use basically for the same thing(e-mail, web, youtube, googlemaps,calender,etc). However, is there any major advantages of having the iphone (without using the phone/texting part) over the ipod touch?
    I know the iphone has the cameras, but anything else?

    I don't see any advantages but there sure are disadvantages. I would think the battery life of the ipod touch would be better off without the extras of the iphone. and you can get more capacity for the money or more capacity flat out if you need a 32 gig. iphone is also a tad bulkier than the Touch.

    If you don't need the phone, I don't see the point of buying an iphone.

    Edit: Oh and Congrats on your first post!

    Just get an iPod touch and use it until your contract expires, then sell the touch to help buy the iPhone. Plus, getting the iPhone early reduces your Apple Care time, which is negated if you jailbreak it so you don't have to activate with at&t.
