I remember when I got my first smartphone I decided then and there to never go back to a regular phone. The added functionality was astounding to me at the time. I was able to stay more connected and plan my schedule without having to write everything down. Having numerous things I want and need all in one place is the best.
"I have the power!!"
And the data plan you pay for... They must be making a killing off of that.
While they do look impressive and are becoming more functional. I don't think that I'm rich enough to afford a smartphone at the time... The combination of the calling plan and the data plan just puts too much strain on my wallet.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Mine is smart because it's out of contract and not freakin' expensive. (I use an old, smelly Razr)
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I have a iPhone that I run on T-Mobil prepaid, the only time I use it is for testing on iPhone (have not built a hackentosh yet). I run I OS, Android, and WP7 using Cydia on it. Outside of that I use it as a phone. When I am out and about the last thing I care about is doing anything with the net. Oh and this includes email if it's not important enough to call me about it can wait until I am sitting there ready to do real work.
I really thought there would be more.
Maybe some of these adults were not sure what a "smart phone" is. They might have an iphone and think... Oh no this isn't a smart phone, it's an iphone. Or they could have any of the dozens of phones that are for sale today and not realize they are smart phones....
I very rarely ever see someone using a regular phone...

I agree acarzt, but as they said the likelihood is greater in a urban or suburban area. With the population movement seeming to be the same it throws up some interesting things sociologically speaking. A smart phone for all uses and purposes now is just a small computer you carry in your pocket. As has also been discussed they will be computers with quad core cpu's by October/November from what I have been hearing. I saw a guy asking a question somewhere the other day about should he just cancel his internet connection and just use his Verizon smart because he was moving into a new house. That idea sounds insane to me, but I guess if you wanna pay car payments for your smart phone bill, well you just go right ahead. Lol; he came back about having an unlimited plan, of which I told him he was severely mistaken because there was a cap on it, he wanted to argue, I would love to see his face when he gets the bill after running his smart phone as a wireless hotspot for a month.
