My Audiovox smartphone came with a stereo headset and mic, so it's
great for podcasts. My old phone with its mono headset was okay, but
at least it's better quality than the average phone call, and you
don't need to buy another device to do it.

about a year ago. I can copy anything onto a little card and then slip
that into the phone and put it wherever I wat in the phone. I can use
ringtones and whatever. My friend just got the updated version
recently and I tried to give her some of my ringtones (since when you
replace a phone you lose all your old ringtones) but the copy feature
was not available. That's gotta be criminal, not letting you use a
feature already in the machine, to keep you from using your own stuff?
