At least the iPhone would make it easy to check calendar appointments, make calls, and check emails, plus with endless apps, she can keep her professional (and personal) life chugging along without needing to carry a duo of phones. Pair the iPhone with the Jawbone Bluetooth Headset I recommended, and she's good to go hands-free.

Techie Diva Gina Hughes tipped me off to the release of the limited edition Baby Phat RAZR and SLVR in pink. The phone combines the ever popular David Beckham-endorsed RAZR and the durability of the SLVR with some serious pink. According to Darla Mack, the devices come unlocked but you can sign up for service on the AT&T website. Of course, because they come with Kimora Lee Simmons' token designs and a bevy of Baby Phat goodies they cost upwards of $400.

We've had alot of people asking us how to get the nasty dust and dirt out from under their Motorola Razr V3 screen. We understand how traumatic it can be to not see your caller ID properly, so in efforts to assist, here are some tips to help you combat those pesky Razr dust bunnies!
- Get a pin with a sharp head. You can use a sewing needle.
- Wedge the pin under the top corner of the screen.
- Apply pressure, and lift up the corner of the thin plastic screen (it is usually stuck down with a bit of glue). If you just so happen to break the screen, because you're overly excited about cleaning your screen, you can find a cheap replacement screen at a cell phone store.
