    Is your iPhone turning into just a cell phone? Or, just a handheld game machine?

    It is a cell phone with the ability to perform other tasks.

    It's neither for me. It's mainly a mobile computer for me. A lot of texting. A little bit of phone. Very rarely playing some games only if I'm extremely bored or a female gets a hold of my phone.

    Or it could be a life altering stress machine. See Spaz.
    I play some good games on my iPhone, but I mostly use it as a phone. And an iPod.

    Hardly.

    If I only used it as a cell phone, I'd have saved my money and bought some cheap cell phone. If I only used it as a game device, I wouldn't make it home to even use as a cell phone. Like Jessica say, it has many uses. I'm glad I own one.

    True. The bar has been set astonishingly low these past few weeks.

    I'd say it's a mobile computing platform with a handy integrated phone.

    For sure. This thread isn't even bunny worthy yet.

    Not sure. It depends on what iphone has to offer later on in years to come compared to other phones. Plus depends on if i can afford $95 a month in this economy.

    I use it as a drink coaster.

    I also used it to pound a nail into the wall to hang a picture.

    I played ultimate frisbee with it (I won too!)

    Yesterday my chair was a little uneven so I slipped the iphone underneath and it did the trick

    I was having trouble deciding on what color to paint a desk - yellow, eggshell or whitish/blue - so I used the screen to determine which color I liked best

    ....

    In all seriousness - my iPhone replaced my blackberry which was starting to have massive failure do to age/use. It also replaced my ipod touch at the gym/commuting and in the future - travelling.

    So for me - it's an ipod, screen to watch/catch up on news/sitcoms, email/txt machine, phone, and other apps like google maps, urban spoon, etc.

    I have light and heavy phone usage days - it all depends.

    we should start a thread on what is the best bunny pic. I think UD's would be up there around #1 or #2.

    No, you need the iCall app for that. It's in the app store. Only $0.99.

    and I keep telling you - you need TWO apps. iCall and iHangup. Otherwise ATT will suck all the minutes out of your plan while you try and figure out how to disconnect
