"Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go backstage. I'm proud of myself, I just beat Brad Armstrong!" - Arn Anderson on WCW Saturday Night in 1992, in the classiest display I've ever seen of someone putting over an underrated mid-carder that everyone in the locker room knew deserved better than the push he got.
Got an iPhone a couple weeks ago. Absolutely the greatest thing ever. Not just in the fun functions, or for giving me the ability to not carry around both a cell and ipod all the time but the quality is amazing. First time I talked to people over it they all mentioned how much clearer I sounded than on my previous phone, without me mentioning I was on a new one. Old one was a RAZR V3, if you wondered. Not to mention I mysteriously no longer get texts delivered a day after they were sent. Didn't realize that was the RAZR's fault, but my wife still has one and hers still does it while mine new phone doesn't.
It's like what I used to want a PDA to be, in that I don't care if I can run mini Word or Excel, just that I can surf, check email, play simple games, listen to music and that sort of stuff.
On the other hand, my boss had me set up his Blackberry this week and it was the first time I got my hands on one. I must say BLEEEEEHHHHHHH. That was perhaps the most annoying handheld I've ever used. I know people love these things but I could not figure out why.
I have an AT&T Tilt (a.k.a. HTC Kaiser, a.k.a. TyTn II) unlocked for T-Mobile. Just before that I was using a Samsung Trace which was the most awesomest, thin phone I have ever seen or owned. I love my Tilt and I agree with everyone else who said that going PDA was definitely the way to go. I know some people like being able to get away from technology but I personally love being able to be in touch with everyone whenever I feel like it.
The replacement RAZR I had crapped out on me too, so I got a Samsung Sync, then the outer screen broke, so I bought an LG CU500 off of the eBays, and just last night I upgraded to a AT&T 8525 (refurbed). The Wi-Fi and 129.99 pricetag is what sold me on it.
I got the Nokia 6555 late last year, and I while I don't hate it, I think it's a lemon. It shuts off randomly and the battery heats up to egg-frying temperatures if I use the mobile internet for more than 30 seconds.
The design is sleek and it has some decent features, but I wouldn't recommend it. I think I'll upgrade to the mythical 3G iPhone whenever it arrives.
I bought a SAMSUNG M540 (a/k/a the Samsung Rave) and I'm really liking it. I can view Youtube videos on it, the QWERTY keypad is more comfortable than the LG Rumour, and the screen is very clear. I haven't really tried out the camera (why use a 2MP camera when I own a decent 6.1 at home?) but all in all, it's a lot of fun.
I found some tutorials on how to create and add my own ringtones to the system, so I think I'll give that a shot sometimes.
I had to buy a phone for work...so I picked up a Kyocera Tomo on the local prepaid service. It's not too bad. My only beefs with it are that the included ringtones totally SUCK, the internal WAP browser is slower than most I've ever used, and that the screen is really small...almost too small for the size of the phone.

Peter Jennings at my undergrad ceremony -- everyone around me thought he was awesome. Quincy Jones spoke at my grad ceremony, and I think there were a few other famous folkss, but I don't remember clearly. I had no ceremony at all for my MLS.
