I use my iPod Touch with a cheap android phone with tethering capabillities. However, I want to know different combinations that people use with their iPod Touch's. What do you guys use? My upgrade's in September (Curse you, two year contracts!) and I might consider upgrading to an iPhone 6 (if it comes out then).

Just sold mine but used it either at home as an 'iPad Nano' via the wifi, or tethered to my phone. Often did the latter if I needed to check something at work as the signal there is dire, just put the phone in a window charging, turn on tethering and off I go!

Original Motorola Razr flip phone that's pre-paid on T-Mobile.

$100.00 for 1000 minutes that last for 12 months (if I don't use them up) with no taxes.

How do you manage both devices? What kind of apps do you have on each device?

I use the iPod(jail broke) for everything media related like Photos, AirPlay, music in the car(less wear and tear on the phone not unplugging and plugging 20x's a day) and save the iPhone for everything else. The iPod gets the ruff service activities, phone stays safe.

I use an LG optimus s (rooted, running cm 10.3); I plan to upgrade to either a g pro or a nexus 5 and use Ting as my operator.

I use Galaxy S4 octa core version as my phone.

I use iPod Touch for gaming and 9Gag, thus allowing me to use my Galaxy S4 for more serious tasks like email, office documents and so on.

I use a Google Nexus cell and when I need to use my iPod Touch I tether it.

I currently use a Blackberry Q10.
The physical keypad is just a hell of a lot easier for me to work with than typing on glass.

I love my BB but I am now looking to pick up an iPod touch for all my music.
Just waiting until I get paid. The Touch will be great for Instagram, music and the very very few games I'm interested in on the App Store.

Just like bear, I had an LG phone...but that was a long time ago. I didn't want two devices so I just got an iPhone. I do miss a dedicated media player though. With my phone I always have to make sure I don't run my battery down too much or I'll have no means of communication.

That old LG would go a week on one charge....

I still have a KIN TWOm as my phone. Naturally it doesn't tether, but I'm not interested in buying a data plan right now.

Got the iPhone 5s with my iPod Touch 4th Gen. Before I had a Motorola flip. Went with the iPhone because I needed access to wifi. And my Motorola battery was dying.


I keep all my favorite games (50+) on my iPod and a few apps I check daily. Moved the travel/navi and business apps and about 12 Gaming apps to the iPhone. More music on the iPod.

iPhone 5s.

I can share apps, but I mostly just have music on my iPod touch.

Simply put I have more music than I have space and this frees me to use a smaller capacity iPhone.

Prior to getting my iPhone, which I use for everything I bring out with me, I carried my LG Xenon phone (a cheap-ish slide phone), my iPod Touch and my 7th generation iPod Nano.

The reason for carrying my iPod Nano is because my iPod Touch is 8GB, and I liked to have a bunch of games on it, and to be able to record a video if something ever happened. My iPod Nano was for the music that I would listen to. Now, I have my iPhone, which is my phone, games and music all at once. So now it's only one device.
