Default What do you use your cell phone for besides phone calls?

I finally got a cell phone a few weeks ago (RAZR V3XX) and it has all sorts of features. I use it for calls, voice mail, and the MP3 player. It also has web, games, calendar, and various other apps. But, I doubt that I'll ever use them.

With the coming of the multi-feature iPhone, I'm just curious how often it is that people use their cell phones for things other than talking. It's nice to have the ability to do all sorts of things on your phone, but how prevalent is the use of these features? I'm wondering if people don't use all these features because they don't need them or they are just to difficult to use on their cell phone.

EDIT: And, what cell phone do you have?

I have the original Razr. Don't like it much.

I don't even use it to make calls, it's for emergencies. I despise texting.

Yep, I really don't use it at all. If I want to listen to music, browse the web, play games, or do anything else on the road, that's what my PDA is for.
