I'm a LEO...and i use my iPhone all the time in my cruiser for internet tethering...other than that, texting and personal phone calls are usually the only other function it plays while on duty. I have a blackberry Curve work phone that i use for everything work related...
As far as apps for on the job stuff...i don't really use any because notations, reports, incident stuff is all within the system, and done on my tough book that is mounted in the car...if i need notes in the field, i learned a LONNNNNG time ago to keep paper notes for legal reasons...everything electronic can be traced, and sometimes notes don't need to be traced.
My cruiser has a GPS system inside of it too, so i don't need that either from either phone...though i do use MotionX in my civilian car.

I am in LE-criminal prosector. I have the Illinois Statutes app-easy to look up sections-better than having to lug around the book-problem is it hasn't been updated so the new 2011 laws aren't there. Maybe there's a better one for NY. I also use Chicago Breaking News to see what might be coming into court on a given day and Maps to get get a better idea of a crime scene. FastCase is a good one for current case law.

I'm an LEO soon transitioning to the iPhone currently with an EVO. I use firehouse scheduler. It's a godsend for scheduling appointments and the like. We have a screwed up schedule and being able to look three months ahead to make a doctors appointment is very nice. I use podcast apps constantly and pandora/slacker to make long nightshifts go by. And then google maps for finding oddball addresses on calls.
Biggest app I am looking for to is the NC statutes app. Being able to have that in my pocket will be very very very nice.

When you're simply bumping it to increase your post count and keep it at the top of the forum, it quickly becomes annoying and redundant. I personally considered both of your posts quite relevant and good, but when they die, come up with something that is equally as relevant and post something new.
Of course you've seen us "start up" threads, but i guarantee you that you've never seen me "bump" a thread because its simply post whoring, and i have enough to discuss in active threads to where i don't need to, as does 90% of this website. To be honest, you're the ONLY person since i've joined this site (outside of spammers) that has done this in this particular sub forum...sooooo...
Bottom line man, i can see you're trying to start up some good convo's, i don't think anyone is trying to make you leave or WANT to leave...we're just trying to throw some forum etiquette your way is all.

LEO also. The only function i use my iPhone for at work is googling Arizona Revised Statute codes when i have one of those odd ball situations going on, otherwise everything i need is self contained within my computer system in my cruiser.
