    I'm sure a lot of you have sold your iPhone in anticipation of the 3g version, but its not out yet. What are you guys using in the mean time? I sold my 2.5g about a week ago and I've been using this Samsung flip phone from about 5 years ago. Its from t-mobile but it took about 10 seconds to unlock (its a menu option!)

    At least it matches my computer...

    I sold my iPhone about 2-3 weeks ago, and I've been using this POS since... I mean this "well crafted" piece of technology :D

    Moto RAZR.

    When I first got the phone it was an upgrade from the Treo 600. I loved it for the simple things like bluetooth and the fact it much much smaller than the Treo 600. But now I can't wait to rid myself of it in favor of a White 16GB iPhone 3G. Can't wait!

    It's crazy how phones have evolved over the past decade.

    I've been using a stand-in for a year now, waiting for an iPhone that would support 3G: Helio Ocean. Everything the iPhone should have been from day 1 (3G, GPS, A2DP, MMS, realtime chat, camera can take videos....), except of course for the iPhone's superior interface and screen size/resolution:

    That is the phone I am working with now. I didn't ever own a 2g iPhone, so July 11th will be a pretty exciting day. Just sold my Zune on eBay to raise money for my 16gb black one. :)

    I was using a Sony Ericsson T226 that had excellent service and sound (better than iPhone) but no internet, no camera, no qwerty keyboard, etc... just to name a few of it's flaws. After a few days with that phone, I hunted down my old RAZR V3 that I used up until I got my first iPhone. The service and sound are terrible (way worse than iPhone), but it has some internet capabilities, a camera, a better UI than the Sony, etc... The next 3 weeks will be rough, but I can say that the RAZR was pretty damn good for being a pre-iPhone concept.

    Here it is...A $10 phone from Best Buy.

    It boasts: Text messaging inbox that holds up to 30 messages.
    Text messaging outbox that holds up to 20 messages.
    A ringer that scares my fiance every time it goes off.
    Has made me learn a new array of curse words. The old-fashioned "F-Word" just wasn't enough to signify how I feel about this phone when using it.
