    Any ideas?

    I know iphone does it pretty well but what other phones do it? Before I got an iphone all i know a phone can do is call someone :rolleyes:

    I have an iphone 2g and it doesnt have gps, i am looking for a phone with a stand alone gps to use, preferable with wifi.

    Smaller the better

    Nokia N95 would seem to be a fairly obvious suggestion....

    Hmm, any nifty little smartphones?

    And doesn't 3G only have a GPS with cell network? Not many have stand alone GPS

    Yes, a lot of smartphones come with WiFi. Not all, but a lot.

    Just look at the local carriers' websites. If in the US, check:

    ATT Smartphones

    Verizon Smartphones

    Sprint Smartphones

    ATT should be getting the HTC Fuze soon (the Diamond Pro), which has GPS, WiFi and a 640x480 touchscreen. WM, so you can use Slingbox, copy/paste, voice calling, TomTom, and other useful things.

    (Ironic that Apple is tied exclusively to ATT, but ATT continues to add more and more hot new smartphones from other makers.)

    No it uses satellites and cell network at the same time to speed up the positioning.
