I don't use my work phone very much for obvious reasons (see below), but my personal phone (an iPhone 3G) gets massive use. As a browser, organiser, games platform... as a phone? Not so much. :)

My getting-ridiculously-old iPhone 3G, aw yeah. On the odd occasion that I do make a phonecall I just use my carrier but if I'm travelling overseas I'll generally use Skype or Viber.

I use my nokia cell phone for calls, but it costs quite a bit (not on any special plan or anything) so I usually don't make many phone calls. Would definitely make more phone calls if it was cheaper and I had a cooler gadget to use!

Home phone is still PSTN as we're currently outside of the reach for Orcon Genius, plus most of our inbound calls are international.

Mobile is with 2 degrees on an Ideos X5, but I do use Skype for a lot of personal calls.

For business I have a corporate VOIP account which is perfect for on the road, otherwise I have a Virgin AU SIM card for any business trips over there.

Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

VOIP (AVM Fritz!Box with attached Gigaset SL375 configured with for local NZ number, for local DE number, for international calls; Nokia E51 with SIP setup for the same three services to "extend the reach" when in a WIFI zone)

Mobile (Nokia E51 on 2degrees, old Nokia CDMA phone until either the phone breaks or the network shuts down)

I use my Landline for occasional calling, mobile calling more so than landline, and occasionally use Skype on the PC with my XBOX 360 Headset.

Here's my new HTC Wildfire S
