Talk the Talk?

With so many features available on mobile phones, talking is not always everyone’s first priority. What do you use your phone for the most? What features couldn’t you live without?

  • We've had this thinly veiled marketing survey before. I want a phone that makes and receives calls. Period. And I'd REALLY like a phone that was easier to operate!!

  • I could probably live without my cell phone. It’s dead in my purse at this very moment.

    My teens are a different story, so lets talk about them, instead.

    Today, I took my 13 year old daughter on a little excursion to Starbucks for some mother-daughter time.

    While we were driving, she got 10 texts in 10 minutes. 

    If I had to take a guess, I’d say she’d say she couldn’t live without her text feature (or at least she couldn't today). 


  • I use my phone in this order:

    1. talking
    2. email
    3. texting
    4. internet
    5. calendar

    I twitter more via phone than anything...

    my cell phone is mainly for business...
    and then  personal use.
  • My old Motorola RAZR is the best alarm clock I've ever found. I'm not using it as a phone anymore, but it's still plugged in next to my bed.

  • Mine's an alarm clock first, a watch second, and a phone third. That's pretty much all that I use it for.

  • I use it for the 20 - 25 calls I make a year, and that's pretty much it.  Terrible waste of a perfectly good Blackberry, but the only reason I have it is because it was free.
  • Yeah... I pretty much could LIVE without the whole phone. We only have one car, and having the phone has made that easier for us to coordinate, but it's not an absolute necessity. We went for years without it, but we felt easier in our mind about having it on our long trips to the U.P. At the very least, it gives us a number for our dogsitter to call in case of emergency.
  • Talking. Seriously, it's my only phone since I'm out of the apartment just as much as in and it's portable. I have texting, internet, GPS direction giving thingie, and anything else that involves data transfer other than phone calls blocked. It does play music I put on the little memory card thing quite well though, but I don't use it all that frequently yet. I am sure this summer when I have more projects going on at work where noise disturbing people isn't an issue it will get a lot more use. Especially since it's a 16GB card, and my iPod is only a 4GB. I waste more than enough time at home with the computer. I prefer being less connected, so I am not tempted to waste copious amounts of time at work. Plus, I am happier when I amuse myself with fewer electronic brain sucking devices.
  • I use mine as a scheduler.
  • Alarm clock and USGS earthquake notifications.
