    Ever since I got my iPhone I don't even use my iPad anymore. Am I the only one in this case. I'm thinking about selling it. What's your thoughts?

    Well if I had just bought the iPhone, I would still use my iPad since the iPad it not a phone, and it has a larger screen. Plus iPad apps won't work on the iPhone.

    Still use mine. I use my phone and iPad differently. I had the iPad since launch and iPhone during the time as well. I'm quite sure there are many people that got an iPad and really didn't need one or to get the iOS fix since the iPhone wasn't available from their carrier. But I still use mine because it serves a different purpose for me.

    Use my iPad daily. Using it to type this actually. Use my iPhone daily too obviously. iPad has saved me from some boring situations in the past.

    +1.

    One does not replace the other... but the two devices compliment each other... I use them both (and my MacBook Pro) daily... and don't see that changing...

    I use my iPad, but much less since getting the iPhone. About the only thing I regularly use my iPad for is Zumocast to watch videos from my pc. I use that every day, but thats about it anymore.

    I'm definitely in the camp that says they compliment each other very well.

    iPhone is perfect for ultimate mobility. iPad is perfect for mobility that allows that larger screen. I could read a book, magazine, or NY Post at night on my iphone, but prefer the larger screen of my iPad whenever I can use that.

    I definitely am happier being able to have 2 devices that work so well with each other as these two. The Droid X was great, but having a few programs on my iPhone that werent available on the Droid X was a little annoying.

    The device that has suffered the most since the iPad arrived in April is my Laptop, it is pretty much at this point exclusively used to sync devices and back up data.

    If Apple does make the next iPad with USB ports where it can sync directly with your iPhone, think about how much more your laptop usage will go down

    Personally, I hope they do because I much rather have the iPad and iPhone working together and not needing a laptop.

    +2 for using both and enjoying both everyday. I do not ever see that changing.

    My iPhone is for calls, texting, internet in my pocket, streaming music (unlimited data) watching movies, and pretty much everything else it can do while I'm away from home.

    My iPad is for web browsing, watching movie and tv shows (mostly on wifi), looking up information, better (as in larger screen real estate) iPad specific apps and everything else the iPad can do while I'm at home.

    Usually the only time I use my iPhone at home is to make a call, send a SMS or when I can't pry the iPad out of my wife's hands (which is quite often)

    I would never get rid of either and definitely get my money's worth out of both!

    Maybe not for you but this was directed to the person who said that their laptop usage has gone down and it's mainly to keep things in sync now. So obviously for them, it would be used even less if they can be directly synced. Believe it or not everyone doesn't need or use a laptop. Some people still have desktops and an iPad does more than enough.

    I am one of those people who use my net book or desktop less. The iPad does what I need on a daily basis. I bought my iPad a month ago and the only time I have used either was to sync my iPad or phone. The iPad cannot completely replace my computer but so far I haven't had a need to use them for the things that I do. And yes I use my iPhone every day also. First and foremost for a phone and there are others uses. Between the two of them I am well covered.

    I use my iPad a lot less since getting my iPhone. It stays on my night stand and gets used daily, but I don't carry it around with me as much as I did before I got my iPhone 4. The retina display makes it possible to read documents on the iPhone 4 (with reading glasses of course).

    Edit: I should add that I have NEVER touched my netbook since getting the iPad. While the iPhone is not necessarily an iPad replacement, for me the iPad worked out as a complete netbook replacement. If the rumors are true about a 4 inch display on a future iPhone, if it was retina based we might get iPad resolution on an iPhone sized device. At that point I'd use my iPad even less, but I'd still keep it around as there are times I want the larger screen.
