Also you can use the Tilt as a USB drive & transfer a document from one PC yo another!

And it also has Copy/Paste. Also if you have songs on your computer that you want as your ringtone, then you can transfer it onto your phone & set it as your ringtones...& if you know how to get free songs like I do then that means FREE RINGTONES And check this out...you can do all of this without the SIM card being activated or even inserted in the phone, that right...it works WITHOUT the Sim. These are the features you can use without a SIM card:
Internet (Uses WiFi),MP3 (Uses USB cord), Camera (You can transfer any pics or videos to your PC via USB then upload it to desired site), EMail (Use WiFi), Instant Mesenger (Use WiFi), Play live streaming vids or use the YouTube app (Use WiFi) The only things you cant do w/o the SIM is Call ppl (Except 911) or send or recieve texts, & thats it. With all of these features it make the iPhone look like crap. The Tilt's brothers are the T-Mobile Wing, The Verizon XV6800, and the Cingular 8125. All made by HTC.
Here's some more Tilt facts:
-Its more durable (It took my friend's Tilt 6 months of constant abuse until the screen got finally messed up & it was dropped on concrete many times, but if you drop the iPhone on concrete at least 2 times you are guaranteed a shattered screen. that is the reason I like thicker phones, more thickness means more durability)
-If the screen breaks you can get it replaced while you wait IN THE STORE or you can replace it your self. (The iPhone has to be shipped to Apple for 2 weeks while you rent another iPhone or use a loaner.)
