Phone:

Hi! How's it going? It's me, your owner. I mention this because it seems like we've lost touch. I was kinda busy today, and got no fewer than 3 phone calls and one text message. Does that ring a bell? I'm guessing no, because I didn't hear about any of these when they happened. The text message I didn't get until hours later! And thank goodness the people calling left a voicemail, otherwise who knows when I would have heard about it?

We've had some good times, you and me, but there's this new phone out called the Palm Pre. Actually, calling it a "phone" doesn't do it justice, but I'm willing to wager it still does such banal things like ringing when it's being called. And today they released an SDK for it which means I can write cool programs and stuff.

So enjoy our time together while it lasts, phone. We're taking this trip to Hawaii soon and I'm thinking the bottom of the ocean might be an appropriate resting place for you...

As I like oceans and am indifferent to your phone. I suggest you don't drop it into the ocean but rather http://www.cycledcells.com/index.php make your phone someone else's problem.

missing calls like that is usually more your provider's roblem than the phone itself... But the Palm Pre looks SWEET!!!

I still vote for the iphone (having used both) if your att service area is functional.
