Nope, I don't have an iphone (or a msart phone, mine has the capabilities for some of it but I don't use it, long story) and have no intention of getting an iphone.

No, I didn't preorder it. And to stand in line for it would require a 2.5 hour drive, which won't happen. lol. However, I *really* want one. I'm having an inner war if I want to upgrade my 3GS to the 4S or to wait the extra 9-12ish months for the 5. I've had my current iPhone for over 2 years now and would love to have one with a better camera cause my iPhoto photos are pretty worthless currently.

I just got a Droid. No iphone for me. DH much prefers the flexibility of the droid. I wish he'd quit f'ing with my OS. All I want is a phone that calls people! Now I have one that tracks my grocery store purchases. :rolleyes:

LOL Erin!

My husband and I each had an iP3GS. Mine tanked, BIG TIME. My phone was the main line of connection for our family, so even though I was holding out for the iP5 (and seriously, my phone was TOAST), my husband insisted I upgrade to the iP4 (just last month!) and when the new phone came out, he'd upgrade (we were both up for upgrades) and then switch phones. Sooooo, that's what we are doing. I pre-ordered the iP4S at 2am on the 7th and am stalking the Internet as if my doing so will speed the shipping process, haha!

I know, I'm a geek. But I can't help it. It's going to have a rockin' camera and my husband is going to be SO SO SO happy with my iP4 because his phone is starting to tank too (plus, the iP4 is just WAY better than the iP3GS).

I feel like a kid at Christmas. Seriously.

You make me want to upgrade NOW! Blum 3 Honestly, I'll probably wait until after we move and are settled someplace with an address. Either that or have it sent to my parent's house while I'm there next month. ROFL

You sound like my BFF. She wants a Jitterbug phone. All she wants to do is make calls and makes fun of me when my phone auto corrects to ridiculous stuff when I text her :rolleyes: Of course, she barely uses facebook, and only touches the computer once a week. She's technologically illiterate.

I am an iPhone junkie too (I have 3GS) and I'm not sure what I'll do either. My contract is up this month...

I have a Droid I got just last year and I'm not eligible for an upgrade until October of next year. I really loved my phone initially, but it's doing dumb crap now. I was trying to open the messenging app the other day and it opened FB, TomCat, my camera. . . everything but my text messages! Grr! It does this all the time now. It constantly tells me I'm low on storage space and then I can't do anything until I've deleted something. It doesn't always ring when someone calls me. . . the list goes on. I think I may cave and just buy a new phone outright, but I don't know if that will be an iPhone.

I'm trying to convince DH that I NEED one. Lol I upgraded my 3gs to iOS 5 and yeah, 3gs is too slow to handle it. I have to press the home button 4-5 times to close out an app and sometimes the phone just randomly freezes for 5 seconds now (like it's thinking). I wish there was an easy way to go back to the previous iOS, but at the same time I'm loving some of the new features iOS 5 has! Just wished it worked faster. Blum 3

I LOVE iOS5! My husband upgraded his 3GS before we received our new phones and his ran MUCH more smoothly with the new OS; I am a part of a total geek forum and many of theirs ran more smoothly too. Sucks that yours doesn't Sad I'm gaga for Siri too, she makes my life MUCH easier!

I took some "model shots" of my phone in its temporary case so I can show some people that are considering purchasing the same case...I should post them here just so you guys can make fun of me for taking pictures of my phone, lol!

Yes, you are a geek for taking pictures of your phone ROFL I want Siri, that's the one thing that makes me think I could do an iPhone, but I just love my Droid.

Anna, Wish you were having better luck with your Droid. I got mine too full and it was running wayyyyy slow and thinking for way too long to do certain tasks but I deleted some stuff and it's much better now. There's a Droid forum online that is pretty good, I lurk there a lot and although some of it is above my head, some of it is really helpful.

Okay, I'm gonna let my nerd flag fly proudly.

Here's my phone in its temporary case:

Emma wants some credit because her chair was used as a backdrop Wink

I NEED that phone b/c of the camera!!! What a great picture!

What case are you wanting? I usually use speck cases b/c I don't like big cases which most iPhone cases are.

I have this one on order:
http://www.otterbox.com/iPhone-4-/-4S-Commuter-Series-Strength-Case/APL4-I4SUN-AVON,default,pd.html?dwvar_APL4-I4SUN-AVON_color=H7&start=4&cgid=apple-iphone-4s-cases

With my kids, pets, and busy life, I want something that will really protect if it's dropped accidentally. I am happy with this Speck case, but with the incredible reviews on the Otterbox commuter, I'm sold.

Plus I think it will look sic with my white iP4S!!! Hehe Smile

That's a cute one! It looks smaller than the other otterboxes I've seen. They're usually HUGE cases.

Yea, I had a Defender on my iP4 and hubby currently has a Defender on the iP4 now. I liked it a lot at first, but then I missed feeling like I was using a phone instead of a DSi, hehe.

Took some updated pics of Layla (the dog that was tossed out the window). I've been contemplating finding her a home because I *never* wanted a puppy and it's a lot to add to the mix (how the heck do you potty train a small breed dog!??!?!) but I think I'm just going to tough it out cuz I really do love the little pup! And talk about little...my dad (her vet) guessed that she would be maybe 18-20lbs when full grown...I thought maybe 20-25lbs...yea, not quite. She has grown about a POUND since I've had her (9/6/11) so she is probably just about done growing. Wow...weighing in at a massively large weight of about 5lbs. Anyway, more pics from my
