74% of polled Verizon subscribers who want to get an iPhone, are holding their horses for the next one
0. phoneArena 01 Aug 2011, 09:33 posted on
A relatively small sample of 216 carrier customers showed that the majority of Verizon subscribers (74%), who are planning to get an iPhone, are sniffing at the iPhone 4, and waiting for the imminent update, which should come in a month or two, if all rumors ring true...

it wasnt an android/iOS battle until taco started in. Its still not an android ioS battle.. he keeps trying though. most of the comments other than taco's are about the survey itself.. and then there is taco... like normal.

Again I never mentioned android at all. What I'm saying is that all you android fans are overreacting as usual to something that sounds good for Apple. And yet it's not even saying anything that great. Just that people who want an iPhone are waiting for the new one.

i have to agree this was not about who had the best os ..but a survey about VZ customers and the iphone..lets give it a rest..it has no outcome on how android preforms

doh I was right the poll was Verizon only... I think they used previous data or separate data for AT&T...
Reading the real article on appleinsider is actually clearer.
Though the results do seem sckewed if we also believe the market % we saw a few days ago where android held 40% and iphone 30%...
In the poll of 216 64% had an iphone

I really should register just to edit my own mistakes... the poll of 216 had 29% iphone.
124. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
that poll was US only. in the world its 40% android, 18% apple.

If you guys remember, a similar poll was done last year, I'm just not sure about the sample population. But it had a similar conclusion to this one. So a year later, what do we see? Millions of Androids more than last year. This has translated in a better Android %growth as compared to Apple's iPhone. And Android market share keeps climbing.
So yeah, 216 cannot yield any conclusive results.

My first day on my new job, and this is what I come back to. Lol.
I realize the main thrust of the article was about what percentage of people who were already opting for the iPhone said they were getting the next one, but it also took care to mention that almost half of Android users were going for the iPhone next. So there was perfect fodder for an iOS/Android battle. And yes, the sample size was too small. It doesn't take into account anything involving demographics or the actual questions asked. For all we know we're looking at a survey done on a group of 13the year olds who want the iPhone because their friends have it.
Anyway, I'm not really interested in a comment war tonight. My day went too well. :)

This survey is old news. It's been said many times already that a lot of Verizon customers are holding off for the next iphone that they thought was going to be released in June. Now they're holding off even longer until October for the iphone5. That is why the iphone4 launch at Verizon was very impressive, considering that the iphone4 was almost a year old when it was released in Verizon. Yet it still sold in millions. I just can't imagine how big the iphone5 will be with Verizon.
Ummmm, why are fandroids defensive? Nowhere in the article was android mentioned. This 74% probably referred to non-android users. Don't worry fandroids, 100% of android users with Verizon will stay with android, because android devices are just too awesome. So just stay happy :)
In other news, Samsung, LG, and Motorola will also be launching their Mango devices very soon. Again, don't worry fandroids, no current android user will switch to a Mango device, because again, android devices are just too awesone :)

Motorola hasn't announced any plans to launch anything running Windows Phone anytime soon. Though it probably would be a smart move if they did.

Here's examples of fandroids trolling

Impossible finding. Totally biased!!!!!!!!!!! 74% yeah right. I wasn't in the poll...What is this poll taken in front of a ATT storefront.... Thumbs up or down!!! Who cares about a iphone 5, 6 or 7. If the next iphone launches without LTE or dual core, then anything less is a pure waste of money.....like I said before
126. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
to find an example of and iBot trolling you only need to look at 90% of your posts, Taco.

I gave you a thumbs up because I felt bad for your piss poor math....thought a nice thumbs up would at least get you to crack a smile
In other news, this survey simply says that 3 out of 4 people who want an iPhone are waiting for the iPhone5. Well no s**t! what's the point in spending $199 on a year old phone that's about to drop in price in about 8 weeks? If the Apple advertising machine wasn't one giant brain-drain, that number would be upwards of 95%

No he wouldn't remixfa is one of the most fair people on this site. He IS right about the sample size. He would say the same if it was about Android. I agree with him the sample size is too small to even count. 216 isn't even a half of a % of the total wireless customers in the US.

ha, this keeps me entertained between customers at work. Taco does have some value in the entertainment department.. next to no value in credibility or knowledge though.
Your like my rodeo clown that i laugh at when im bored. lol.

lol 8 hours a day my good sir while at work :)
reading all your nonsense can acually be funny and entertaining
132. Sniggly (Posts: 7296; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
That's what you call trolling?
And I guess saying that android users can't possibly have significant others isn't an act of trolling?
You don't want to go down this road, Taco. You will lose badly.
136. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
I choose Apple so I can never lose.
I said he doesn't get laid because he's married not that he isn't married.
139. Sniggly (Posts: 7296; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
You will lose if you choose the tack of accusing everyone else of trolling.
And you insinuated that as an Android user he wouldn't have any girl. Once again you step into deadly territory.
When's the last time you got to make sweet love down by the fire, Taco?
141. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
No one who gets layed says "make sweet love down by the fire".
And it's true android fans in general don't get laid
145. Sniggly (Posts: 7296; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
No one who has anything close to an active sex life misspells "laid."
And how would you know? When's the last time you had sex, Taco? Answer the question. Stop evading.
150. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
man i live in florida.. its too hot for a fire.. ill make sweet love by the pool though. :)

taco50 gets "layed" more than all of us combined. Yeah to his pillow! lol
Sniggly that was funny! lol So taco50 how many pillows, err, sorry GIRLS have you gotten "layed" with? You must have too many notches on your belt huh? Like I always say taco50 you are the BOY! lol

There actually is some point to that. I mean nerdy types will more likely pick android. This is because its more open and has better specs. People who buy apple more often dont care about these things. Makes sense to me. This is sorta trolling but you brought it up.
140. Sniggly (Posts: 7296; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
I think you'd be surprised at the amount of Android users who have active sex lives. It was nothing close to a valid point, and he meant it as a personal insult to Remixfa.
142. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
By active sex life's you mean watching porn? I guess that's why you all need flash so badly.
146. Sniggly (Posts: 7296; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
This right here is why people dislike you, Taco. You can't come up with effective counterarguments, so you act like a petulant child, a kid who can't stand being wrong, so you try to attack everyone else to make yourself feel better.
Yet you can't handle it when it's dished back at you.
Now, I've given you a chance to clean up your act. I've been mighty nice, considering the disgusting things you've said lately. I've even defended your sorry ass when it seemed you might have started listening. But you've been an ungrateful brat. I have a 10 year old nephew who can take a hint better than you.
151. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
anyone else love watching sniggly scold taco? sniggs, ya keep givin the boy a chance. I told ya, he cant change.. noone changes. He didnt even last 48 hrs.. lol
152. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
im happy you keep calling me a nerd.. it proves 2 things
1) your still in school
2) you dont realize that in the REAL WORLD nerds are the WINNERS. Your buddy Steve Jobs, bil gates,branson, all of them.. they are ALL NERDS.
See in the real world, nerds own the businesses, nerds are the boss of all the cool people, nerds drive the nice cars, and nerds get tail whenever they want because women are attracted to money, power,and confidence. Three things most real nerds have.
Cool kids expire when high school is over. Their best days are over the moment they graduate.
I for one am happy to be a nerd. :)

& this comment that you quoted me in is trolling because.................? taco50 NOW you are just reaching. Now your BS reached a level that even you can’t get out of! lol You are active like a fish out of water. How does this make sense in your mind taco50?

Ok everyone all this going back and forth is not worth it. Yes everyone is entitled to their own opinion but What is the point for all the fighting on here? Who cares about the numbers, how does these numbers in any way effect you? this right it don't and it a waste of time to be on here fighting and choosing sides. If your a android fan congrats, if your a ios fan congrats also. Truth of the matter is no matter what side you pick we are all losing because your buying a product. These companies are getting your money at the end of the day regardless if the OS is perfect or not. and personally they could care less how you feel.
