    Default Your phone's main use?

    What's the main use for your phone given that current models seem to have as much processing power as your average PC nowadays.

    Do you use it for phoning people?
    Sending off texts or tweets?
    Updating Facebook?
    Playing games or anything else...

    Me? I spend more time listening to the radio on mine, than I do actually talking to people.

    I don't have a smartphone, so I don't do too many fancy things. I do text a lot more than I talk, though. And it's my alarm clock.

    My iPhone is my primary day time browser now. We still have a house phone so my iPhone gets only light use as a phone.

    I don't text or tweet at all and no facebook. Just my 2 message board and Email as far as text based communications.

    I play Tower Madness occasionally and my Mello RPGs but that is it for games on the phone.

    I have a three-year old, two generations obsolete smartphone. Its functions, in order of frequency/ importance:

    1) pocket watch
    2) text messaging platform
    3) Facebook interface and general web browser
    4) telephone
    5) company e-mail interface

    I was a late adopter, and still have the same cellphone I got four or five years ago. I use it to keep in touch with home, or for making calls when I'm on the road, or (hasn't happened yet) in emergencies. I also, when I don't have a wristwatch on, use it as a clock. I rarely text and don't do any Web surfing with it.

    Text and occasionally email.
    Never phone anyone and don't usually accept phone calls, just let it ring.

    Surfing at work, since I'm not allowed from my desktop computer.

    In order of frequency:
    Watch
    Alarm Clock
    Texting
    Calls

    I don't have a smartphone and it has no kind of internet connectivity, so.

    It's just a crappy little thing, so there's nothing fun on it.
    So now they are just dirt-covered English people in fur pelts with credit cards.

    Somehow, I conflated the two of these in my head and it became "drug spoon."

    Which seemed like a really odd use for a phone.
