I am actually surprised why only 63% not interested in an iphone? shhould be more like 96% (4% margin for error) :))
we buy new devices cuz we got potions...a lot of them plus they're cool :)
better data plans would be nice...although i get awesome coverage in my area!
telemarketers call us cuz they know we are the larger market share so there's no point pitching to the sheepish minority :)

What percentage of iPhone users are interested in buying an Android??

Zero. Plus an overwhelming sense of SCS - superiority complex syndrome.

I know at least one. He said if there were a way to port all of his iTunes content (music, movies, tv seasons, games and apps), he'd go in a heartbeat. I'm sure music can be ported, and maybe video. But no way apps and games.

I know a few that are chained to the apps/music they bought. That's part of apple's brilliance in forcing loyalty that has been part of the equation from day 1.
Got to remind your bud that almost all of the apps he has on the iphone, he can probably get for free on android.
Itunes can be converted as long as its not DRM protected. Heck, even then I think there are programs to get around it. Rhapsody can do it I think.

You can transfer Itunes music to Android, but all that other stuff can't be done since they are two diff OS's. It is nice to dream tho.

DoubleTwist works for getting most itunes features on Android, from what I've heard

For me it would be like giving up my freedom and going to jail.
+ Why pay more for less?

the 'fruiters' love to do jailbreaking... but first they must go to the jail.... so, they pay to be jailed...

Choose Android because of it's flexibility, customization, more tweaks control.
BlackBerry: we must use RIM services to full use of BlackBerry with very limited things to do with the services, another service we pay another, while with iPhone/iPad, all our data stored in Apple and it is hard to export to another device so we "must" still depends on the company.
I want to freely distribute, share and save my things freely regardless the platform. So far I found it from Windows (microsoft), Java based phone (especially Sony Ericsson that had most compactibility of Java base applications) and now Android for it's mimic almost act like mini windows computer.
This is why I prefer Andoid most. Cross Platform is good, we don't have to depend on one thing or one services or one os or one whatever. Compactibility is A MUST, exclusivity is NEEDED FOR PRIVACY ONLY NOT FOR EVERYTHING.

We all gotta choose sprint since sprint has all our backs when it comes to 4G LTE
It's the plan with the most sense. :)

The only time I relied on my friends for app discovery when they got me into KakaoTalk and the Pudding Camera. Other than that, I found the rest at the market.

I like the 7th one.( 63% of users are not interested in getting an iPhone whatever the price?)
Because same apply with me. I m never going to be a slave or prisoner.

I'll goto WP8 before anything. I'd rather just not have a cell phone if the only choice was Apple.

Wasn't there a pre iPhone 5 article on PA that said 30% wanted to "switch".... once iPhone 5 was launched?

Never go back to Android again, unless FRAGMENTATION, LAGGIN and UPDATES issues are solved, Android has a lot of potential but as an open platform there's to many hands baking the cake and the result a total mess.......!!!
38. Twashbush (Posts: 47; Member since: 08 Jun 2011)
Dogiefresh have you not looked at any high-end androids in the past year? android 4.1 jellybean kills almost all lagging, as for fragmentation pick a high-end device and chances are 90+% of apps are going to work, some are designed for certain hardware and if that is the case and you know that is an app your interested in get the right hardware period.
Samsung is likely the biggest name in the android device market but I myself perfer the motorola devices over the samsungs in almost all regards (solid non-plastic construction, design, user interface). does my razr maxx on 4.0.4 lag a bit sometimes, yep cause most of the time it's running 3-4 things at the same time which the iphone will not do (downloading a torrent, steaming music, reading stuff on the web, updating apps, playing a game, ) the iphone can run music or nav in the background but not much else
39. JunkCreek (Posts: 406; Member since: 13 Jul 2012)
windows had more fragmentation, but eventually, it is resolve. still, ati aren't stand againts nvidia in games but great on laptops/notebooks/netbooks. android only needs time to developed, just like windows 3.0 to 3.1 (cup cake & donut) then windows 95 (eclair) then windows 98 (froyo) then windows 2000-xp (gingerbread 2.2 - gingerbreaf 2.3) go to windows vista (ics) now it is on windows 7 state (jellybean). the stable is the same; windows 98-xp --> android 2.2-2.3 the first stable release; beta launch windows vista --> android ics and then straight upgrade to windows 7 --> android 4.1 jellybean the last the most stable.

Ignore above, somehow my reply on page one got bumped down here... (?)
46. JunkCreek (Posts: 406; Member since: 13 Jul 2012)
not bumped to page 2, but someone/somepeople had so many reply on their comment, so yours automatically shifted to page 2 because the inserted reply in page 1.

i'd take an iPhone at $1 off contract...maybe even $5! ffff, 63% of Android users wouldn't take an iPhone at ANY PRICE. that 63% fails. xD
