If you do, do you have insurance on it? I was told that State Farm will insure them if you have a current policy through them for $30 a year. Do you like your iPhone or wish that you had gotten... Read More

    I have insurance on mine.

    I LOVE my iPhone. I have programs on it like Epocrates and the RN Pocket Guide. So helpful for me, especially as someone who will be a new nurse (hopefully) within a year.

    Only thing I will say is that I wish I had gotten an iTouch instead. It seems more useful for the clinical side of things.

    How so? The itouch is almost the same except it has less than the iphone.

    Because the iTouch does not have the cell phone capability, it leaves so much more free space on the gadget to download software and applications.

    For me, I like my phone to have music, pictures and other random stuff on there, which doesn't leave much room for the serious stuff. I like the idea of having one device that holds all of my "professional" tools.

    I didn't even consider that...how much memory does the cell eat? I have an itouch but was considering getting the iphone-but don't want to lose lots of space...

    You know, I don't know how much exactly. What I do know is that my friend has an iPhone, and we both have that same pocket guide installed, and it takes her SO MUCH longer to open the app. I was told that because there is a phone function on the iPhone, that memory is always being taken up by that. Because the iTouch doesn't have that capability (along with others) it frees up the whole phone to open programs faster.

    That's very interesting food for thought. See, I wanted to upgrade to the iphone, but not activate it. Just really wanted the camera. I'm holding out for verizon to pick up the iphone (sometime after 2010).

    But. maybe I should hold off.. Thanks for the info!
