    So I'm curious if you will be keeping your iPhones after having the iPad? This spooked and ruined the iPhone for me. I now instinctively reach for my iPad it does everything so much better? Thoughts?

    I think I will be upgrading to an iPhone when I can. I mainly use my iPad around the house on wireless. It will be easier for me to connect both, and take the iPhone out with me should I need it. I think of it as a more compact iPad lol. Plus with imessage coming out, I can message my partner on the iPad when I'm out.

    Definitely! I do still use my iPhone as - well, a phone! Plus I've ordered the wi-fi only iPad, so my phone will be used for Internet if I'm out and about :)

    Oh hell yes! IF I had one, that is. :D

    The iPad is not a phone.

    If I had an iPhone then I'd have to sync and use the dreaded iTunes...:D

    But only as much as we use it now with our iPads, right? I can't tell you the last time I took my iPad to play with Cheater Tunes.:D

    I got an iPhone 4 overseas in a pinch because I needed a GSM phone and wanted something easy to use. I could've easily sold it for more than retail price when my work assignment was over, but I found it indispensable because I love the camera. I also really like being able to easily synch my content across my phone, iPads and touch. YMMV

    While I don't have an iPhone there are plenty of times, such as now, having my phone to do more than calls is much more convenient.
    I have an app for forwarding texts to my Ipad Text Now app but find I'd rather have the reverse.

    These are two different devices with different applications and use. Ipad is not a big Iphone.

    I used to own an iPhone but it was the 3G model so this iPad2 is a big upgrade however, my main phone device is a blackberry. But nonetheless if I did still use my iPhone I prob wouldn't get the iphone4 as my next upgrade because my iPad does it all.

    The iPhone 4 camera is significantly better than in previous models. (For those with interest in photos.)

    The iPad 2 camera falls way short. I didn't buy an iPad for the camera, though. And it's actually come in handy for video Skype and a few times when I didn't have immediate access to a scanner. I took photos of a few docs and emailed them. The quality is grainy, but readable.

    Tried to communicate that to my FIL last night. :eek:

    First, there are a lot of iPad-specific apps that either don't have an iPhone equivalent or, if they do, are written so that the iPad app might as well be a totally different (and better) app.

    Second, many iPhone apps just don't display (in my opinion) usefully on the iPad, so I don't use them, even if they're installed on my iPad.

    Third, the amount of visually displayed information on the iPad screen makes it useful or at least a lot easier to use for tasks that either don't work or don't work all that well on the iPhone screen. Sometimes size just plain matters. ;)

    Fourth, touching links, etc., on the iPad screen is a whole lot easier...I miss a lot more often on the smaller iPhone screen.

    OTOH, the iPad is a bigger device that pretty much requires either having a free hand or having some kind of bag or similar carrying device. The iPhone, on the other hand, lives in my shirt pocket except when I'm in sleeping.

    My phone is a 3GS and I love it as a phone and a mini-app machine.

    The Ipad2 is not a phone. I have apps on it that are not on my phone. I am really enjoying my Ipad and so will you.

    Some things you just can't do with an iPad. Try lugging it into the restroom, for instance. Everyone who sees you with it knows what you're up to. However, my iPhone4 strapped to my belt is just another cellphone. (Hint: I can still do almost everything I can with the iPhone that I can with the iPad.)

    I bought an android phone, because I have an iPad. I'd rather mix things up a bit. The iPad does everything the iPhone can do except calls, and for the time being, texts. (to a certain extent)

    Keep the phone. Use It for calling and texting mostly though. And use the iPad for gaming, typing, watching etc. :) but when iOS 5 comes out the iPad will have a built in msging app so use your iPhone MAINLY for calling.
