    Just curious. Forthose who carry more than one phone, or carry one phone and it's not an iPhone, what do you carry, and why?

    I myself have a BlackBerry Q10. While I "use" my iphone more - browsing, apps, etc - my Q10, thanks to its keyboard it is my communicator. Emails, long messages, all get crafted on my Q10, while pretty much all other phone functions get used through my 5S

    For work, I have an LG Accolade which was provided by my job. It's a terrible phone but has survived for 3 years so far after being dropped countless times, slid across pavement, etc.

    Until about a month ago I was carrying my old HTC Touch Pro. That was the phone I used for three years before my iPhone 5.

    Windows Mobile Professional 6.1. 8GB Micro SD card. Highly modified to run Sense 2.1 w/Weather. Sense is what HTC Android phones run. Had a clear flipclock with weather on my homescreen. Added a bunch of stuff that allowed me to upload to Facebook and Youtube, customized GUI, the way I wanted it. All done with CAB files.

    Good enough to fool Sprint techs into thinking I was running Android on a non-stock ROM. Phone was a tank and took drops like a pro-wrestler. When I parted with it last month it was still going strong. Now it's doing the job for a guy in Texas who wanted to keep his Sprint SERO (employee) plan and I'm happy that someone else can still put it to good use.

    I have an S3, mostly just use it for watching YouTube/Netflix and certain apps and games that are only on Android. Put it up for sell on Craigslist then had second thoughts, it's just gonna be my backup/rainy day gadget or might hand it down to a family member.

    I know people who have a personal phone and a work phone but its rare these days. There are those who have a phone for their wife and one for their girlfriend, but that's a different story lol. :p

    I wouldn't want more than one phone.

    Heh. I don't actually do one work one home. It's just that I do enough emailing and texting on the go that warrants me having a BlackBerry wherever I go. My BlackBerry is my "text communicator" - and everything else is done on the iPhone.

    I have a Blackberry Z10. I still like the Blackberry and have since it first came out. It is a shame the company has faltered in the past several years. I use my Z10 when I am on call as an EMT and am less concerned about it getting damaged. It also contains all my contacts I require when on call. This way I can keep work and personal separate.

    The days of carrying two phones are gone. Pagers, gone.

    I wouldn't say that. Depends what one does for their living/job or businesses they own/run that they want separated from their 'personal' phone.

    My wife and I own an iPhone 5 (her) 5s (me) as our personal, daily drivers
    We also both own Notes, her the Original Galaxy Note, I traded mine in for the '3' (kept my original) and returned it to AT&T in two weeks---went back to my Note 1. I'm surprised how Samsung is bloating up their 'edition' of Android with TouchWiz....and so far, next to impossible to root it and apply a custom ROM. They're very convenient when signing contracts, running credit cards, showing video/stills and content from our shows, etc. They're getting less and less use, hence the reason I returned the Note 3. I don't want to be tied to another two years on it. The iPad Mini has taken the place of Register/Square's system and contracts through Pages works well.
    I also owned the Galaxy S3, traded in for the Note initially and the Xoom as well as both Nexus Tablet 7" models. I've still got the Xoom...both Nex7s are gone as is my wife's Note 1. My full contract is up---and I'm considering, as we DO need a business phone...giving Android one more try
    Considering the HTC One or the new Nexus 5

    My work phone is a Samsung S3...but I do work for Samsung. I must admit I was quite nervous when I first started there and used to hide my iPhone.

    And before anyone thinks I'm only here to dis Apple, I own a rMBP, Mac mini, iPhone 5s, iPad 1, Apple TV, Time Capsule...

    I've always wondered how it's like to be using an iPhone if you're working for other mobile phone brands, especially Samsung. :D
