Brain, I am right there with you. I use my cell phone for....umm.....minimal or emergency calling only. If someone calls me on it, and it isnt a family member in dire need, I will call them when I get home or to my destination. Seriously, I dont need to be connected all the time, nor do I want to be. The iPhone is pretty neat, but I would never need 95% of the things it or anyother high-tech phone can do.

I can still remember, in the not so long ago past, when pagers were the hot thing to have.

iPhone = Hype
Personally I don't care though. I don't need a phone that big or with the connection to the internet. Texting GOOGLE (466453) is free and gives me basically any info that I need.

If you guys are interested.

Thats why I bought this euro nokia. Tough as nails, and makes calls. Plus I can always use the flashlight, compass, and thermometer in it.

This looks promising

3g and open to outside applications with 8gb of storage, 5mp pictures and good video, sounds good to me.

Now that w810i looks like a nice unit. Not bad pricing for unlocked ones on ebay either.

I'm getting the new Palm Treo Centro to replace my treo650. It's basically the same **** as the new treo, but a few hundred bucks less.

Unfortunately Palm is the only decent touch screen out. When they fix their
A) bluetooth headset compatibility
B) get a headset jack that doesnt break everything you plug something into it.
