    I think that this will be a really good topic! Could teach some of us iPhone dummies more to do with our iPhones.

    I use mine for just about everything, emails, research, FB, keeping up with birthdays and appointments, and of course taking pics of everything that catches my eye.

    Why? Cause it's everything I need and want right in the palm of my hand!!

    RDP........why travel 50 to a 100 miles on your day off when you can fix it remotely?

    GPS Navigation always comes in handy in unfamiliar surroundings.

    eMail....keep waiting for them to take away my office because I'm never in it.

    Too many others to list but my jailbroken iPhone comes pretty close to a desktop replacement device. All this and it makes phone calls too!

    Of course, Blink. Otherwise we would have to call it something stupid like, "iPod Touch." Sorry we forgot to tell you.

    TBH the actual phone part is one of the things I use the least. I mostly use it for email, texting, facebook, reading news, games, getting sports scores, twitter, checking weather, google maps/bing, traffic updates, and as a flashlight.

    It is a computer that makes phone calls. All modern computers will make phone calls if you ask them to. That does not make them more telephones and less computers.

    Traveling is a part of my job. Remembering where unlocked wifi signals are a bonus. Usually libraries, hotels and near apartment towers are a great place to utilize others wifi. Ooh yeah, I like the flickr app as well
