    I want my phone to first and formost make calls. Follow that with text messaging, maybe some PDA functionality. The ubiquitous camera and the MP3 player functions can be nice at times, but video! Give me a break! When cell providers convinced us that watching grainy videos on a poatage stamp was a great new feature. That has got to be one of the all time marketing triumphs.
