  • Mine is a android (touch screen) with slide out keyboard. It took some time to get use to using the touch screen to dial, etc but it's fine. I'm glad though that I have the slide out keyboard it makes texting easier for me.

  • I don't have and don't want a touchscreen phone. I have an iPod Touch, which is great, especially for entertaining kids (very intuitive). But it just reinforces my desire to NEVER own a touchscreen phone. For one thing, I'm obsessed with keeping my phone screen clean and free of fingerprints especially, which would be impossible when having to touch it all the time. And for another, even though I know it can be locked, touch screens are very easy for kids to figure out.

  • My SO and I have one and all three kids do too. Our calendars are synced and I have an app to organize my day. Reminders I set up pop up and keep things clear so I get everything done. I love the store list thingee too.The kids use it for their chores, friends numbers and addresses and homework. My kids have their music on there and the Easter Bunny and Santa bring them cards to use in the itunes store for music and apps. My pnone is my best friend besides my SO of course. Love it.
