    Yes, not having an iPhone will definitely hinder your social life. :cool:

    Perhaps instead of caring so much about what processor is in your mobile device you go out and make friends and then you'll have a use for a phone...

    I guess it depends on what you would use it for. If all you need is a music player, then the processor is irrelevant.

    If you need internet connectivity everywhere (almost everywhere), then the iPod touch wouldn't work for you.

    The thing is, if you need a phone and need a media player, why carry two devices? I don't have any friends either, but I still own an iPhone. I need it for business related phone calls, email, and internet connectivity. I also use it to play media files.

    If you can afford it, why not? If you can't afford it, don't.

    My current phone broke, and I ordered a nokia lumia 520 as a cheap temporary replacement until the iPhone 6 comes out. The nokia hasn't arrived yet.

    I have that 520. Bought it for $10 new and used it for a month to test T-mobile service. I made new friends that month as well. You'll do fine.

    Get an iPhone and download OkCupid. ;)

    But seriously, I'm the world's biggest introvert, and I love my iPhone. It doesn't matter if you have a lot of friends; what matters is how you plan on using it. (And for the record, I have met friends through the OkCupid app. :eek:)

    Here is my reply OP..

    69 years old, friends are around same age, few younger with smartphones.
    I make few calls, use my computer (both notebook and desktop) lots....

    I bought the iPhone 5S, played with it for 7 months, using SIRI a bit, she was off many times, used the weather app some but that got old. Played with the GPS a little but my car has one built in, and the screen was too small on the iPhone. Did not play music, not a kid that needs tons of music stored and many times never played again. I have a stereo for great sounding music at home. Using the iPhone camera was about the nicest thing to have.

    7 months later, I sold the iPhone 5S, did not have to pay the ETF (Now one does) at Verizon, got a good flip phone and saved lots of money. I'm a happy camper now. Didn't really need a Smartphone, but heck, I have the money and wanted to try it out, but it was not for me. Waste of money ;)

    That is my take. Others have different needs.

    I think the better question is... are they worth being your friends?
