Just for fun, what phone would you be using right now if Apple had never blessed us with the wonderful iPhone?

For me, I'd still be using my RAZR V3c until my Verizon contract expired in a couple of weeks. Then I guess I would have signed a new contract and bought a BB or some other smartphone. Yuk! :p

I'd still be stuck with my old BB Pearl, which will be the property of my 16 year old cousin after Christmas.

It's kind of like one of those "I can't imagine how I lived without the iPhone" stories.

I'd still be hanging on to my Cingular 2125 as it technically did everything I asked of it. iPhone's sure a lot more fun though!

If I were buying new and the iPhone weren't around, some of these "iPhone killers" would be enticing...

But again... the iPhone sure is a lot more fun!

I would be checking out the LG Shine CU720. It looks sweet. I am going to the AT&T store and check it out.. :cool:
Yeah, that does look pretty nice, I'll admit. Not sure I'd trade in an iPhone for it, though...

... which begs the question... I wonder how many people have actually "traded down" for another phone.... any stats on that one?

BB Pearl. Good phone, good calendar, good email. But not exciting. iPhone rocks. BB Pearl functions.

I still have it here on the counter. Can't decide what to do with it.
