    Plain and simple can we start a thread where we put in the single most unique thing or coolest thing we do with our phones.

    For me I am a runner, and I love being able to ditch my ipod and my GPS watch and use my phone for everything I need. Music, emergency phone calls and I use the google my tracks app to track my mileage and speed. I know you can do this on any android phone, but it was always buggy on my Eris but so far it has worked flawlessly on the 4 runs I have used it on. My only complaint is the size, but the phone is light enough that it doesnt really bother me. ( No I don't strap it to my arm, I put it in my pocket)

    I know this is pretty basic, but that is why I am posting this, I want to see what other cool things the phone can do, and what is the most useful for you.

    Please post any relavant info such as app names or where to access settings etc, so we do not have 5,000 posts asking silly questions and clogging the thread.

    There are lots of cool things that I do with it, but I'll pick one.

    - Playing Gameboid (GBA) and other games using a Wiimote (Wii Controller) feels awesome.

    - Download the app or apk "Gameboid".
    - You will have to find some Game Boy Advance ROMs, use google for that.
    - Then download the app "Wiimote Controller".
    - Turn on Bluetooth on your phone.
    - Open the Wiimote Controller app.
    - Sync your Wii controller by opening the battery compartment and pressing the red button, after pressing the power button.
    - Once it syncs, open the "Gameboid" app.
    - Hit the menu button and enable "Use Input Method" for a bluetooth device.
    - Go to kep mapping in the settings, and change the "A" and "B" keys to the "1" and "2" buttons on the Wii controller.
    - Turn the controller sideways.
    - Enjoy.

    Stream live video to my friends.

    Browse the web with an awesome screen.

    The obvious, I actually make calls and txt/mms.

    Play HQ youtube of videos like "evo vs iphone" for my friends.

    Use it as a back scratcher. :D :D

    And use the other plethora of apps/games, etc....but above is my mainline.

    Does it specifically need a PIN? Try no PIN at all, that's how I did it to use as a Windows mouse.
