Why did you choose iTouch over iPhone?

I did cause I wouldn't use the phone part, and it's friendlier in terms of size and weight.

I have an iPhone.
But If I had chosesn an iPod Touch it would have been for the cheaper price and faster speed (2nd gen). Fairly obvious really.

because of the price and because i like to have a phone to make phonecalls, not to run fancy apps. fancy apps only reduce battery runtime of the phone.

3) I don't like the idea of having absolutely everything on one device. If I lost it, I would be up sh*t creak without a paddle.

4) My freinds who own iPhones look like they are in an unhappy married with the machine from hell.

5) I am scared that I will turn into an iPhone if I use it enough.
haha wow, that's a very good answer.

I got my iPod when it was first released, and that was before iPhones.

I don't like the iPhone as a phone, I'd rather have my phone and media player separate. Plus I always thought the iPod looked nicer anyways. I had no idea it was faster.
