    What else do you do with your phone??

    Just wondering what else everyone does with their phones. ie geek factor.........
    I surf the net, control unsuspecting peoples TV's, listen to mp3's watch movies/shows on the go, and watch live video from my home security cams.

    Now if only someone came up with a way to incorporate WiFi......

    I listen to MP3's while I'm in the gym using fitness traking software, after Im done working out, I buy a smoothie on a credit card and enter the transaction into quicken all of which I backup to backupbuddy right after I leave the gym so I dont loose any of that data.

    There is no spoon
    Neo can be spelled as One.

    Use it as a low power flashlight.

    Read a few articles from the New York Times (via AvantGo).

    PS. I do have frequent lockups if I get a call while in AvantGo, however.

    The combination carphone / mp3 player using an FM transmitter broadcasting into your car FM radio is hard to beat - see this post for more info. I use the iRiver AFT-100 FM transmitter which can transmit on any FM radio broadcast channel. Works great for me.

    You know those hotel rooms that are pitch black at night unless you leave the bathroom light on, but the light and fan are on the same switch and bathroom fan is so noisy you can't sleep? Well the 7135 makes a great nightlight assuming of course you're plugged into the charger or cradle. And of course the 7135 is your alarm clock too.

    I forgot about the flashlight. I use it like that once and a while.

    MP3 player with stereo earbuds
    SSH into my webserver
    Track Gas Mileage
    Check Register (with Money)
    Check news and movie times with Avangto
    Email/Web stuff
    Games, lots of games.
    Fax/modem when on the road
    DocsToGo to use Word/Excel files for work
    eBooks
    Image viewer to show off family and other cool pics
    Unit conversion/calcuator for work
    Dictionary

    probably more, but it gets used quite a bit for a lot of things.

    Ah the flashlight! Somewhere in the bowls of this forum is a thread called stupid 7135 tricks or something like that and it contains all the internesting things people found to do with their phone. Me I use mine for time and billing with an app called QBMobile. with it I can input my billable hours and the import them directly into Quickbooks when I get back to the office. Its very convientent. as for the other uses:
    Flashlight
    Contraction timer
    Mosquito repeller
    TV remote
    Youth soccer game timer
    Intimate positions reference manual...ahem
    Bar drinks database
    and the usual stuff
    MP3, calculator,email, yadda yadda yadda
    mg
    Luck is where opportunity meets preparation.

    True story. Out fly fishing with my two brothers. I leave my stuff laying on the beach while we all fish. I'm catchin' em, my brothers aren't, so they head back to the car to drink beer. They decide my stuff isn't safe alone on the beach, so they move it without telling me. I'm done fishing. Go to get my stuff, it's not there, so I assume they have taken it to the car. Walk back 2 kms to the car only to find my stuff ain't there. It's now dark. In fact, it's pitch black. No flashlight, but I have the 7135. I walk back to where my stuff is (2kms) and back to the car (2kms) picking my way through the forest on a narrow trail around roots, rocks and mud, thanks only to the eerie green glow given off by the screen of the 7135. Every 10minutes or so, I had to close/open the flip as it went into power saving mode. If it wasn't for the phone, I would have lost about $500 in gear!!!
