    Hey guys,

    I thought it would be interesting to ask you if you didn't have the iphone or if the iPhone never existed (it's a nightmare I know:eek:, but hypothetically), what phone would you have? For this discussion, let's pretend the google gphone is in existence?


    Cheers

    TOo bad it isn't out, cause I would definitely have that if it was. I am starting to get impatient with RIM delaying it.

    Probably a BlackBerry Curve. And I'd probably think it was a fantastic device, because I wouldn't know any better.

    Razr because I hate every phone out there except the iPhone and would have continued to refuse to upgrade.

    I would probably still have a Razr, or something comparable. I had a Treo previously and hated it, and since I see the Blackberry or any of these other smartphones that have the small screen, too many physical buttons taking up space and the bulk of them all, I see them as way too similar to the Palm and would not be able to use one.

    Would've kept my Palm Trem 680 which I sold to finance the iPhone.

    Whatever I could get cheaply that I could sync with my Mac, and has Bluetooth. I'm not interested in another smartphone unless it can sync with my .Mac, er, sorry, MobileMe e-mail, calendars, etc.

    That's what I really like about the iPhone. All my Mac stuff comes with me, seamlessly and effortlessly (well, ok, almost...:rolleyes:).

    The phone I had before I got my iPhone...it worked well I just hated it's keyboard and joystick control.

    Completely happy with my iPhone...just wish I could make apps for it.

    I'd have a Blackberry. Only plus would be my company would pay for the hardware and the service.

    The negative would be that it isn't an iPhone.

    I would still be using my BB Pearl, as I was pre-iPhone. Then I'm sure I would upgrade to a new BlackBerry.
