Hello mylotters, even I keep wondering that the main usage of a cell phone is for communication purpose. I have an ordinary phone with not much special features. Many people use mobile phones with lot of features, camera, mp3 and stuffs. Sometimes I feel weird, whether all those features are necessary. Which phone do you own and what features does it have?

I think that the phone is a great opportunity communication is I do not think it is bad the idea of taking pictures make videos, send e-mail and connect online because it is very convenient, given its small size,access to all of the advanced features quickly

i need one good game on mine. i prefer platinum solitaire. and then it is nice to take a picture here and there. originally when i bought my first camera phone i didn't want the camera. i was looking for a phone without a camera but couldn't find one. but then when i started to use the camera i ended up being a lot of fun. when my sister had to go into the hospital she would send pics of the chair in her room. the scar where they cut her open and the staples. that was difficult too look at. but it tied me in with what she was going thru.

I have this high tech phone and I have to admit my kid knows more about it then I do. I know how to use the camera and set my ringtones but other then that I just answer it when it rings or I am making a call. All this new technology is hard to get use to some times.

I have a motorolla L6i with a not so good camera and FM function, it has blue tooth capabilities, the reason I bought this phone was mainly for tuning to the radio, since I have camera I sometimes send MMS . as it needs additional subscription in my country to send and receive mms i hardly use this. I transfer the photos to my PC using bluetooth functionality. well I like my phone. It has been a year old now, I will trade for a better phone with good sound output.

I own a W910. And I have bought it after a couple of years being contented with my old phone. I think the features are also important, Since it would reflect on what kind of necessities you're looking for. I had to change my phone back then since my friends are always making fun of my old one.

I probably don't even know how much my phone can do cuz I'm only interested in making and receiving calls. And, I don't mind having a camera in my phone to take pics of my kids or for work. I've been none to play Tetris on my phone, but not so much anymore. I suppose that all these features on a person's phone makes things more convenient for some, but a lot of the extra technology that we have make life a lot more busier. That's why you have people talking on the phone and driving at the same time. Kids sending text messages while in class. Used to be that a person could only talk to you on your phone when you were home to answer it. Now, I'll be in the doctors office, driving, working, etc.. and my phone is ringing off the hook. And, when people call you on your cellphone they have the tendency to expect you to answer it everytime - because it's a cell phone. You can't say that you weren't home.

When it comes to me a cell phone is a cell phone,and I do not care how many extra accessories or gadgets it has on it,because the main purpose of a cell phone is to call people,or so people can call you,and as long as my cell phone allows me to do that then I am quite happy,especially since cell phones with extra accessories sometimes will cost an arm and a leg.

I have a Sanyo Kantana from Sprint. I use it mainly for emergencies and for phone calls to my hubby and son. Sometime I'll text message my son or send photos to my son or hubby. I know it has games and I can use the internet with it, but I don't really use all those features. They just came on it. It is really hard to get justa regular cell phone these days. They all come with all this extra stuff and I personally don't need it. Have a great day! Char
