    Sorry if this is wrong thread to post.

    Do most or all of you have a smart phone as well as an iPad?

    Thanks.

    Yes, I have a Droid 2. And a Droid 1. And a Blackberry Storm. OK, maybe the Blackberry Storm doesn't count. :D

    Only the D2 is active but the others could be.

    Nope.

    I have a very generic Tracfone - pay as you go. I hates using the phone, I do. In fact, the cell phone is hardly ever turned on...

    It's worth it.. Here's how I use my phone:

    3 push (instant) email accounts
    Text Messaging (unlimited)
    Phone calls (Unlimited)
    MP3 player (in the truck - I have unlimted data, so Pandora often or Rhapsody)
    HD Video recorder - I have a GSD, so he's a kid to me
    Photos - Never know.. I see a lot of neat stuff out and about
    Facebook - I keep in touch
    US Bank - Good way to check up on checking account/transactions
    Google Earth - I was able to upload our job information for our sites. Pulls up details for each site and their exact location. GREAT for my job!
    The Weather Channel - SO I can dress correctly
    Calendar - This is auto sync with iPad and computer so I'm always aware of whats due, going on, plans.
    UPS, USPS, FEDEX apps make it easier tracking multiple shipments (for work)
    Media Remote - I often use my iPhone to control my Sony Media player, usually in the kitchen and bluetooth is wireless..

    Surfing the web when I need to look up information. Great for them days with down time.

    And you can also accomplish these tasks on a laptop computer, and desktop ;)

    The user is debating going from a feature phone to a smartphone. So clearly the topic is what can a smartphone provide that a feature phone can't? Assuming the OP doesn't want to carry a giant iPad around everywhere, AND that the OP has an iPad already (member on forum).

    :D

    My wife has a smart phone (Samsung Fascinate) but she needs it for work. If I had a smart phone it would be just for fun, and talking at least $90 a month I just can't justify it. Paying off my house seems like a better way to go :D

    Texting, emails, phone calls, all the rest i use my ipad.
    Great setup. Dont feel I need a "smarter" phone.

    love my fascinate... especially now that words with friends is out for android...
    I really loved my BB, it just worked.... great but not a lot of fun. Had windows mobile phones before that....have to have something to play with and tweak around. Also great for getting things done. I really don't want to carry my ipad in my purse!

    Yes. I currently have an iPhone 4 along with my iPad. I use my my iPhone all the time in the field to check e-mails, surf the web, etc, and of course I use the apps. I had the iPhone long before iPad! Before iPhone I had other smarthphones. (Palm OS and WM not to mention the three previous generations of iPhone).
