    ...besides making phone calls?

    I'm too poor to use mine for anything else.

    I don't have a mobile(cell phone) right now, and haven't for a while, but when I did I used it for calling, texting and the odd picture. For me, a phone is a phone.

    At the end of a contract it can be liberating to use for batting practice.

    My cell phone is my life line. It has pretty much taken the place of my Palm Pilot VIIx.

    In addition to talking, I use my cell phone for texting, I actually don't use the camera much and I have never used the video function. I use it as my back up alarm clock, I use the calculator almost daily, IMing, checking and sending email from three different accounts(AOL, GMail & Yahoo!). Depending upon where I am, when I'm bored I play Bejeweled or look at porn. :smile: Oh yeah, and I have the names, addresses, phone numbers and e-mails for friends, family, doctors, acquaintances, local delivery places, etc.

    Since moving to Georgia I have added the names, addresses, phone and fax numbers for my parents doctors.

    i agree with njqt... my blackberry is my lifeline. I use mine to surf the web, i tether it to my laptop and can get on the internet anywhere, text messages, aim, the occasional lpsg view, music, tv shows, movies, oh and push-to-talk

    Same, when I'm traveling. I have a nasty ability to sleep through alarm clock buzzers, but the sound of the cell will wake me every time.

    My Blackberry Pearl is my e-mail, IM, camera, Pocket PC, MP3 Player, arcade, and now that I have Digby, it is shopping therapy too.

    Only problem is I now want a Wing (Microsoft Windows Mobile Phone).

    The funny thing is there are a few people from LPSG whose cell numbers I have; but we have never spoken to each other. :tongue: We just text and send each other naughty pictures.

    98 pct of the time for calls. other times for texting and taking pics.

    am not attached to it. more annoying than anything most days. talking on the phone and driving rank behind cleaning as my least favorite activities.

    had a message in spanish from a woman 4 times this week. it's pretty fucking obvious i am not who she is looking for if she listened to my voicemail intro. if it happens again, i am calling her back, and calling her a "puta".

    Texting, a light to find things in the dark

    I bet you weren't thinking of this though...

    The Bluetooth Toy

    It puts new spin on the term "Give me a buzz."

    Damn, beat me to it. I'm even in a Facebook group made for people who use their phones as flashlights...
    Beyond that, texting and a(n alarm) clock.

    I don't do a WHOLE lot with it... I text, I play games, and I take pictures.
