Hey Soldier -- You're In the Smart-Phone Army Now!
Curious how it will pan out.
Great, now it'll be even longer until I get mine...
yeah, offer them the most delicate of phones. smart.
iPhone Rules, Droid Drools
I'm sure an ottebox defender will also be standard issue as well.
But iphones's screen can't be use with duty gloves on????
good idea, but what happens if it rains? it's against the rules to use an umbrella and the rain gear is almost useless in keeping you dry
This is my smartphone,
This is my gun,
The first is for learning,
The second for fun.
Gimme a break. Wimpy iOS or Android phones for our troops? No way. Give them all old Windows Mobile 5.0 phones, I say, so they can learn to be real soldiers

and btw, if you're imagining iPhones in battlefields, think again. did anyone even read the article? its for recruiting purposes, to spread propaganda (and i don't mean it in a bad way)
iOS wouldn't be licensed to the U.S Army, that's something that Android would be doing.
Are any cell phones allowed in combat period? Doesn't seem like something that would be allowed. The iPhone is definetly for recruiting purposes, but it's not just a "join the army and get a free iPhone" kind of thing. They anticiapte that recruits will use them to read up on training material during their free time. iPad would be a better format for stuff like that though.
Yes. I had a cell phone during my second tour in Iraq ... this most recent one, I did not, only because there was no service where I was.
Hell. One jump from a C-130 and the iphone falls out of your cargo pocket! At least it would of for me twenty-five years ago when I was in the army.
*GET DOWN!! GET DOWN SOLDIERS!!*

I sent one of my old phones to one of those "phones for troops" programs. I wasn't quite sure how they were being used, but this answers it. I am glad to know that it may have been of some use. It was a good phone too. One of the best I ever owned.
So at least the soldiers telephone will be smart. Thats a big improvement for US Army.
Hopefully, there are safeguards against GPS exploits.
If they think they are the best method for helping recruits then so be it - I imagine they will be passed on to new recruits when the training period is over.
What about recruits with iPhones already?
I jump all the time with my iPhone with me. Of course I have it in an otterbox case.
Ignorance is bliss.
Everyone knows already
They can always use these...
Thats it, Im joining
