    Just interested in what people call their iPhone's. For example if your asking where your phone is do you say, "Where is my iPhone" or "Where is my phone". Do you make a point to say iPhone, or do you just say phone?

    You're missing the US audience in your poll who would call it their 'cell phone'.

    Depends what kind of mood I'm in, if I am feeling lazy I just say phone, but if I am actually in conversation about it I refer to it as 'my iPhone.'

    I spend half the time calling it a POS, and the half when it works right calling it "my iPhone". :eek:

    I was wondering this myself the other day - if someone asks "can you look X up for me?" or "please text X and tell them that I'll be late", I would always say (assuming that it's true) 'Sorry, I left my phone at home' or 'my phones battery is dead'

    It's only if I'm showing if off (which isn't that often) that I'll say "My iPhone has a better browser than that" or "my iPhone has visual voicemail"

    Most of the time, "phone"

    But when I'm in the car and have to swap the SIM into my old HTC Tytn II so it can get the BT connection to the car, which the iPhone can't, I call it that "$£)(*$<>&"*$&&*("$)"$&) :apple:POS":D

    I always just either referr to it as my phone or my mobile phone. I never call it iPhone, it strikes me as sorta weird. Owners of the LG Shine's don't go saying 'damn, left my shine at home again today' either, or do they? :eek:

    Why must you attack ignorance with ignorance? For every American who forgets there are other countries in this world, there are four of you who forget that not every American is an idiot.

    Off I go to drink a gallon of soda and eat an entire apple pie!....right....that's what your thinking.....azzhole...

    I call it my pocket Unix workstation, and that makes the people I hang with do a nice double-take :)

    I just call mine "phone" or "cell phone". I try to avoid calling anything by its brand name since I think that sounds pretentious. I also erase the "sent from my iphone" tag at the bottom of emails. I haven't discovered a way to keep that from automatically popping up.
