I don't have a cellphone, I find them useless because I only have a few freinds that I really talk to, and I am normally home, so I just use my home phone.

And if I need to my Father's Cell phone.

Geez, my Old Sony digital Cam that takes memory sticks is only 3.2 megapixels, don't know about video but it does records fairly nice video.

I have a cell, but it doesn't have a lot of features. I only call some people, and I hate texting, but it's still a good thing to have.

I don't want to make an "I'm leaving" thread, but I've sort of lost interest in this board. So if you notice that I'm gone, that's why.

I have a Nokia 2600. It has no camera. And I like it that way, because phones are for calling people! It's bad enough that it does text messaging and all that BS nobody really needs... That's what I really liked about my old phone. It was just a phone, and it did everything you need a phone to do: place and receive calls. if I'm going somewhere I know I'll take pictures, I'll bring a real camera.

Camera phones aren't really good for much besides uploading random, spur-of-the-moment pictures to MySpace or whatever.

Our 5 year old, 4 megapixel Canon Powershot A80 takes better pictures than almost any cell phone, mainly because it has real optics, no plastic Tic-Tac size lens.

Damn I sound old.

Here's a sad realization, a girl on my bus was texting at, what appeared to be 20+ WPM. Now, that may not sound like much, but think about typing like that on a cell...sad, isn't it? Also, note: the girl was in seventh grade.

I can type pretty fast on my dad's Blackberry, but it also has a full keyboard (I hate having to use a number pad to type letters). I've only used it about 6 hours, too, thats because I was at my grandparent's house for a few days and they have dial up, so I used the Blackberry to IM people.

I actually far prefer text to communication to voice, much more efficient for the short and/or one way messages that are cells phones are used for.

I have a Nokia 3220b and it has I think a 1.5 mega pixel camera. It does it's job, but I still prefer my old Nikon F series. Cheap SLR film cameras FTW!

i have the verizon lg enV. it's designed for texting (full keyboard), but the cameras very impressing for a 2 megapixel camera. i used to hate texting, but it does come in handy if you're in a place where calls are forbidden or to send a short message 8)
I will always put 8) at the end of my posts
