    My computer in my car can also make phone calls, yet it is not a phone.

    But then again, i don't use voice on it. It came with a thing called skype. I think you can even install skype on your desktop computer.
    Why would I want to pay extra to call land lines when I can make regular phone calls from my phone that are included in my monthly fee?

    MMS? is that like a primitive way of sending media to someone else? Probably doesn't even use the internet to do it does it? I do this weird thing where I long-tap on a media file, click "share", and i get options to send it to a contact via email, bluetooth, or service (ie, facebook, flickr, or ovi).
    But can you send me media to my phone? Well you'll need to find out which carrier I use, find out what their email to text domain is, and by the time you do that, I could have sent you my entire photo collection from my phone.

    Unlimited Data. Also skype can receive unlimited calls for like $15/3months. And when my wife is at home, i make free calls to her skype-to-skype. I also use the same account for my home and mobile computers so I'm not paying anymore than I would. Furthermore, i never go over in my minutes so i have the lowest pay-as-you-go plan. I think it saves money. And yes, i'm probably a very limited minority who could care less about voice on a phone. Voice is there when i need it, i just haven't had the need yet.

    I already know your normal gmail address and I know your droid can read emails. Or can it? I guess if you know a lot of people who are stuck in the 90's you would need MMC. I don't need it. Everyone I know and care about sending media to has an iphone or android phone or in the very least, a computer.

    Yes, I just haven't been able to apply and test them yet.

    Well I guess we are just two different people. I'm the type of person that has a netbook for netbook purposes, and a phone for phone purposes. If I wanted lag in my conversations, I'd use skype. If I wanted connectivity issues with my phone calls, I'd use skype/Alltel/can+string. I like having stuff that just works. Oh no, I'm not in a 3g service area! Oh wait, my phone is a phone. I can still make and receive calls.

    Skype is a terrible solution to rely on for mobile business purposes.

    I installed an iPhone skin. You can load the forums on your smart phone and change the style at the bottom.

    Play with it, let me know how it is. I know right now the topics at the top don't seem to work. It should work with any 3.5 inch screen device.

    Surely with phones it's whose 'ding-a-ling' is smaller.

    changing the drop down didn't seem to do anything on my phone, it still displayed in the default style.
