    I'm absolutely LOVE my iPhone 4 and was thinking of buying an iPad 2. But what can I possibly do on it that I can't already do on my iPhone? I use my iPhone more than my desktop, I even pay my bills from my iphone. If the iPad had a USB port then I could see a definate difference! Am I missing something? Help!! I don't want to waste my money but if there's more to it then it would be worth it.

    It's all about the screen size ! What you do on iPhone is 10 times better on the big screen of the iPad

    If you enjoy and use your phone as much I know you love the iPad even more because the screen size.

    I felt the same way about my iPhone and I still have the 3GS, I never thought I could function without my phone it was all I needed, but All the things I love about my phone are enhanced on a larger screen, go for it, u will love it!

    Agree with the comments that the screen is huge impact benefit. And it is lighter than previous iPad 1. All you do things on watch, edit, read, etc., become a versatile tablet and ease of use really. I have both of them, gain much productive on doing my things. Wouldn't be a mistake having one...if you intend to spend. :)

    I agree with you here. I have both iPhone 4 and the iPad 2 and love both of them. The iPhone 4 is good for places where I wouldn't normally bring big devices, such as work. The iPhone 2 gets used a lot outside, at home and my in-laws house.

    If you watch a lot of movies then the iPad has a maximum 64 GB memory capacity whereas the iPhone's maximum is 32 GB.

    This is another good one. I always forget about the benefit of more memory as it the case with the 64GB model. :)

    Without the iPad you are missing at least half the show. ;)

    Me like big screen, but then again teh Iphone 4 is the ultimate in portability.

    I find I use them both equally.

    Getting into using apps with the gps are actually usable... I have the iPad and the gps even works when there is no cell service, I've used it in northern canada driving days past cell coverage and as long as you have the maps loaded your good to go... as a pilot/ driver you can have it open on a map and leave it in the passenger seat and read it without leaving the controls or worrying about getting pulled over.

    Also at the time I got mine, I had worked the math that the plans and 3 year contract for the iPhone 4 vs iPad data plan and basic phone/ text plan on the cheap jobber phone; it was $600 cheaper over the 3 years to go with the iPad and jobber phone.

    But at this point I would like to get an iPhone to go with it... hope that helps

    I had my iPad before the iPhone, i was always against apple and a Nokia fan. After seeing how well put together ios was I just had to get an iphone.

    If you dont want an ipad because alot of people dont really "need" one. Just save your dosh. But they are a really nice piece of kit

    I was given an iPad 2 at the end of May, and use it all day for various things. The iWorks apps are great for writing letters, making checklists, spreadsheets etc. It is great for watching on demand telly and films, surfing the web etc. However, after upgrading to ios5, and finding out how fantastic the reminders app is, and becoming increasing reliant on the calendar to keep my life in order, I bought an iPhone 4 last month. I love that the two devices talk to each other so well. I can make a 'to do' list on my iPad when sitting in front of the telly, but read it on my phone when in town the next day. It really is brilliant, and I wouldn't want to manage without either device now.

    Absolutely, definitely go for it. You won't regret it for a minute, and you'll love your iPhone even more too.

    I had an iPhone before I got my iPad. If both are at hand, I grab the iPad first, and for that reason I considered going to a regular phone.

    But... there are many times when when I don't have my iPad, but my iPhone is ALWAYS with me. So, I'll be keeping both. :)
