I thought I'd start a thread where people can share experiences of where the iPhone has helped you in whatever way, and where other phones would not have been able to help in the same way, if at all. For example, the other day I needed to know the balance of my bank account. I was out, and didn't know where the nearest cash machine was, so I pulled out my iPhone, and using Safari, logged onto my online banking and checked it. Took me about two minutes, max. Other phones would have been too slow at rendering the banking website, let alone trying to scroll around it and enter in my password etc. Come on people, share your stories. Maybe it'll give other people some ideas of what they could be doing with their iPhone .
