View Full Version : Having a PDA (iPod Touch) and phone - is it a pain
01-17-2009, 07:55 PM
I'm ruled out an iPhone, DH has one and I don't want the extra monthly fee, plus we don't get ATT in our house. Until recently, we didn't get any service because we live in a canyon, but T-Mobile put up a tower at the end of the street. I really want to use some of the iPhone/iTouch applications, especially sync with iCal/Address Book as DH uses these on his iPhone. It would be nice to have one master calendar that we both sync to.
I'm thinking of getting an iPod Touch and swapping to T-Mobile for a cheap phone.
Will carrying 2 devices, and having to charge both drive me crazy?

I got a Touch for my birthday, and am currently using the Touch for my calendar, iPod, and several apps. I have a Motorola Razr through Sprint. I CANNOT WAIT until my Sprint contract is up in March so I can ditch the Razr and get an iPhone.
I could probably deal with a phone and a touch if (1) the Razr wasn't such a monumental piece of crap, and (2) there is no Sprint service on the road to my son's school, and it is a giant PITA to not be able to make or receive calls on the route I spend an hour a day driving. So, an iPhone it is!

This is our main problem with the iPhone and our current ATT service - no connection in the house, well sort off if you walk around trying to find the spot with the most bars. All carriers were like this until T-mobile built their tower last year. It drives both DH and I crazy, but he won't give up his iPhone for another carrier, but for me it's another reason to NOT get an iPhone.

Have you looked into the G1 phone from t-mobile?
