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 something else? Thanks!
I have one... good tip on state farm! I love my iphone. Problems using it as my PDA in nursing school: If your hospital doesn't have wifi and you can't get good ATT reception, then you are screwed for trying to use apps like, your translator, and your drug guide... So make sure you bring your books jic!
I don't have it insured, but I do have a policy with state farm and i definitely want my phone insured because APPLE/ ATT won't do it and its a freaking $400 replacement...
You go to the itunes store and set up an account. I bought Nursing Central from unbound medicine. It was $$, but stuck the receipt in my tax file. I also have a "Jaundice" app and a "Breastfeed" app (I work NICU) and a website for neonatal ultrasounds.
there are several of us @ work w/iPhones, so I bought an extra a/c charger for work. Very convenient.
Lol i clean it with Sani wipes, but I also have it in a case. Nothing like blood on the iphone searching for a drug! I try NOT to pull it out in the ambulance.
When i start in the MICU, hopefully i won't need to use it b/c i'll have a computer handy, nearby!
I use the skyscape nursing suite. It "sometimes" requires internet access... I don't know sometimes i use it and it crashes on me, if that happens i connect to wireless and then it works. most of the time it doesn't crash, so i can't tell you honestly if you HAVE to have a connection. That would be a good question for the medscape customer service rep!
iPhone junky here. Don't have to use WiFi for programs from Skyscape and Epocrates. They are my essentials. I sold my Palm Tx a year ago, never to return to Palm again. Gave up on my Dell Axim in less than six months. I use my iPhone almost hourly for looking stuff up quickly. Can't go wrong.
I keep my iPhone in a case, in my pocket and occasionally wipe it with the sani cloths provided in the ER (case, not the phone). Usually take the case off the phone every other week and wash it at home with dishsoap, wiping the phone down with clorox or lysol wipes. No problems!
You will love the iPhone and look as kewl as Bond using it.
