Poll: Which smartphone feature could you not live without?

I've voted for Other - as I'm pretty sure I could live without any feature on my phone, indeed I'm reasonably sure I could live quite well without my phone.

On a side point, yesterday I borrowed a colleagues ancient company Nokia to make a call where I needed to withhold the number as we can't do it from our desk phones. It felt really weird holding an old style slim non-smart phone. Like swapping from driving a truck to a car - everything was so much smaller, and easier to use.

morddwyd - You have missed my point. Many buy a smartphone because of its additional features eg pim, GPS, etc. They could buy any phone to do texting. Texting should be in the same category as phone calls which was removed.

I was thinking that myself.

The only phone's I know of that can't text are the some of the Doro phones for people with mobility problems, and even they can receive text messages

My very old basic phone was more than ideal for me until recently when I aquired a smartphone. The only reason for the smartphone was the ability via an App to control my cameras

I don't have one but would suspect the favourite feature is being able to recharge it.

I have only recently joined the smartphone ranks and I did so because my camera broke and my old phone was well just old. I am assuming that the "photos/videos" section of the questionnaire includes the camera so that is what I voted for.

For me it's email.

I feel tense if I'm without email for more than a couple of hours.

Here comes that nice nurse with another tablet.

Wish I could get a nice nurse to bring mine.

Well, obviously mp3, SMS and voice calls, good camera and a couple of games
