What native iPhone application/feature do you use least?
Title says it all. I would add a poll to this thread but the possibilities are endless. So how about it, what native iPhone application/feature do you use least on your phone?

1. Spot light search
3. Apps that I never use from Apple -
Stocks - Bloomberg lets me track my stocks and how much $$$ I make (or lose ).
Weather - Incredibly lame and really gives no information, Weather Bug Elite.
Youtube - Bored with watching idiots do dumb things.
iTunes - I always compare prices with AmazonMP3 before I buy songs now.
Voice Memos - It's 2009...no need for this.
Notes - Awesome Note, because it's awesome.
Contacts App - Not sure why this is even here, looks like it provides "duplicate functionality" to me with what's in "Phone"; lulz Apple.

Youtube, Stocks, Weather, Voice Memos, Contacts (I usually go through the phone app), Calculator (I'm good at math, no need for it), iTunes, Notes & Compass.
I barely use the calendar.
Probably would have been easier to name the ones I do use. Lol.

Dang, a lot of you say clock, I use that for the alarm almost everyday, lol
I use youtube all the time, stocks I don't as I use better apps like bloomberg and dailyfinance
For me, the native stocks and weather apps, as well as voice notes. I don't ever open the compass app but it is useful when it integrates with google maps, so i guess i use it.

Voice Memo: though I actually like it
Stocks: I use Bloomberg, it's much better
Calculator: But I do like it
iTunes: This is the only app I wouldn't mind if it was deleted altogether from my phone.

Yea all these people saying they don't use the clock. What do you use for alarms or timers since other apps can't run in the background? I use the alarm every day. I use the stop watch at work to time experiments if I have to leave the lab or when I go to lunch, love that Apple added lap times in 3.0. I use the timer at home all the time for cooking and grilling.

Ha ya same here...use the clock every single day if not twice a day (nap-time!!). What are some good alarm replacements? I dont mind the native clock but wouldnt mind trying something new.
Also, i never touch stocks, itunes, or youtube

iTunes (If I want to listen to a song, I'll YouTube it)
Weather (WeatherBug Elite is a must-have for my daily bike commute to work)
Stocks (Doesn't investment cost money?)
Contacts (I don't see the point in this one, given the duplicate functionality in "Phone.")
In fact, I use each of these so infrequently, they're hidden from view on my jailbroken 3G.
Those I use but thought I wouldn't:
Voice Memo (Often snag blurbs of songs off the radio or from live performances as a "learn to play this" reminder)
Spotlight Search (It's quicker, in fact, to spotlight search a contact to call than to navigate through the Contacts or Phone Apps, at least by two taps. No Voice Control love for the 3G, I'm afraid--I see Voice Control as a complete replacement for most of the handy functions of Spotlight)
Calculator (One of those "You don't miss it until it's gone" apps)
