    Well I'll just say I'm very comfortable. I use my phone mainly for text and email. I do have a couple of dozens apps, but I rarely use it for an iPod. I use the iPod Touch for video's and music.

    On My iPhone, or my iPad?
    I use mine as a PDA, for email, for sms, and web browsing. I also use it extensively as an iPod. I bought it so that I could cut down on the number of devices I had to carry. Two years ago I was carrying an iPod, a Windows Mobile PDA (I'm glad that's gone), a cell phone, and a laptop. I then got a Treo with WM on it and that removed one device. With the iPhone I get almost everything in one. So now all I carry is my laptop and my iPhone! :D

    I used for all what I used a cellphone before, and a palm, to get my life organized and have internet access everywhere I go.
    I work for an automotive company and do a lot of travel, so when I'm on a plane I watch movies and listen to music + play very nice games.
    The camera has been very helpful for me and my co-workers to shoot some pictures when a camera is far away, so it speed up or performance on the job.
    Shoot, email, done.

    I travel a great deal for my business so the video iPod is a dream come true. LOVE watching movies at my convenience on the plane, waiting for the plane, or any downtime. Also use web and email heavily.

    Web browsing, text, email, apps, and ipod. I like the web browser the most I feel like I have a mini laptop in my pocket.

    I use it as a student I guess - I do a lot of research on it, use it to help me study, organize my terribly disorganized life, etc. I also use it as my in-car iPod most of the time now as well. Oh and I use it as a phone. I guess not everyone knows about that function. :p

    Student. I use notes for my tasks (hmm I should get a task manager too). I also use iProcrastinate for my homework. I use the calendar for all of my events and I also use it as my iPod. I also text and email quite a bit.

    I also use it to check the weather and news.

    Seriously, since I received my iPhone, I have used my computer MUCH less than usual. It's great. I don't even feel the need to take my laptop to class anymore unless I am using OneNote to take notes.

    Use it to kill time between classes, and at work, and wherever I'm bored.

    I'm a student.. so I use it to keep organized with my classes (iProcrastinate). I also text obviously; browse the web between classes, during classes if I'm that bored, and when I'm eating lunch or whatever; I also use it for email (my on campus job depends on email); iPod; and apps (games, etc.).

    I love my iPhone. :)

    How long does your iphone's battery last without a charge?

    I get use out of most of it.

    The top two uses (kind of obviously) are as a phone and iPod. I use the iPod almost all of the time in the car and the phone...well duh, when people call. I love using the packaged earbuds because it's much easier to talk/hear using that. No awkward holding the phone, and it's so much louder.

    I use e-mail on the phone, but it's more of a "because I can" thing. I usually look at the important ones on the MBP when I get home so I can follow a link to a video or whatever.

    I also use it for a shopping list, to-do list, news (RSS, AP Mobile News, NY Times), track gas purchases and mileage, info grabber (where is this address? where's the nearest starbucks? what's the weather like?).

    I also use some games on it, but I still mostly use my Wii for those. I'm about to sell my Nintendo DS, mainly because I have the portable time-wasters on here. I liked a few of the games on the DS, but if they're not time-wasters, I want really in-depth games (Zelda, Guitar Hero, Pro Evo. Soccer, Mario Kart).

    So basically I use it for everything. I wish there was an app that would give me local radio stations via the Internet, but so far there isn't. There are of course little additions the device needs, but it's gotta be the best smartphone out there for what I do.

    I'm not a hardcore business used since I usually always have my laptop with me. I use my phone mainly as a phone right klnow. I keep track of my projects using Timewerks, I use Notes for shopping lists and general jotting, I only use the iPod about 25% ofthe time and mainly as a sleep iPod. Then i use maps ymobile and calendar a good amount of time. At night time wheni don't want to fire up the laptop I'll use my phone for browsing, games and checking email.
