    Both, sometimes I call it an iPhone, and sometimes I call it a phone.

    Phone unless I'm specifically talking about it technologically.

    Ditto. It's just a phone, really. Does some cool stuff though.

    I call it my "cell"

    Comes from having cellphones for a long time - I owned a Motorola Brick Phone....

    How many of you used the internet on a StarTac????

    I usually call it a phone. Such that when I'm at a friends house or at my sister's, I always say to myself "where is my phone. Have you seen my phone?"

    I guess if I were asking someone who did not know what model of phone I had I might say 'iPhone' for clarity's sake. It would save the inevitable next question: "what's it look like?"

    You should add an all of the above option. I use both, but iphone just a touch more.

    I just say my phone. My wife has a Galaxy S II Skyrocket in white and I have an iPhone 4 in black. Not that hard to distinguish them so when we are looking for our phones we are not specific.
