    So, I've gotten into the habit of naming my iPhones. The first one was "Ivan," 3G is "Ive". iPhone 3G S will be "Remy".

    Do any of you name your phone? If so, anything good?

    Just trying to pass the time till Friday, I guess, haha...

    Well this is going to be dumb.

    My GF's pet name is Monkey. (IDK why, it's just what it is.) I bought her a green iPhone case and this is her wallpaper. (1st attached.)
    Her phone is called "Monkey Fone." I'm thinking about changing that to a famous monkey's name. Any suggestions? Ham?

    I'm Penguin. (IDK why, it just is what it is.) My case is orange. I'm going to change that to blue. The second attached image. Any famous Penguin names?

    My EDGE is named "Karan's iPhone" with Karan being my name.

    the 3GS will be appropriately named "God".

    Lancelot Link's GF was Mata Hairi. That's a good monkey name.

    As for penguins, Pete is a good penguin. Pete the Penguin.

    My name is Ryan so I try to incorporate "ry" into things.

    In the past I've used ryPod, Ockham's Ryzor, RySoSerious?.

    Macbook Pro's name is Sophie, iPhone 3G 's name is Sarah. And FWIW, PS3's name is 2MB (named after ddr for those who know).

    Naming is SOOOO much easier for network identification.

    The "Infallible One", because the Iphone can't ever be wrong, people can be wrong all the time.

    :D

    Haha, that's funny.

    I've always wondered something, how come iPhones don't have the ability to get an engraving on the back? I mean, surely it isn't THAT hard to do?

    All my iPod's are named after Bond Girls (and all my Mac's are named after Bond Villains), so my new iPhone 3GS will be called Vesper.
