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...

Exactly I really have a hard time understanding why they are so obsessed with Apple when they claim Android is so superior.

no, just taco's buddys are avoiding this article because they know its an iFodder trap. Otherwise Miz and Gemini would be on here too. The article has no merrit. The only one arguing that it does is Taco. Like normal.. taco is wrong.

Is that taco talking to himself again? lol. oooh man, taco the "victim".. it never gets old. ooooh pooor taco, who never ever ever says anything mean, misleading, or wrong! He's soooo bullied!!! lol.

actually this is a fandroid trap. You fell right in as usual and make yourself look like a biased fanatic with your ridiculous claims of having to survey 20,000 people for this to be accurate.

HEY TACO

Do me a favor.
can you quote me on the 20,000 people claim?

No, you cant.. because I didnt say anything of the sort. Like usual, you are a mindless iDiot that lacks reading comprehension and just makes up crap on the fly.

People never change.

you said a 200 person survey would only be valid if VZW had 10,000 customers. And for the person who said my math was wrong you're right. It would actually be 200,000 people surveyed to make the math right according to remix

taco, in statistics there isnt a direct correlation in size between one and the other. if 200 makes a good survey for 10,000. 2,000 isnt the magic number for 100,000. Wow dude.. seriously.. when you get to high school, take a statistics class.

How's that? Fandroids swarmed an Apple article as usual and insisted this was not a legitimate survey based on sample size even though it makes sense. I never even brought up the fact that iPhone users were way more satisfied then android based on loyalty to the platform.

Taco, you once again made it a personal war with Remixfa. I don't care who you disagree with. You made it personal.

Actually his first comment was about itrolls and saying the survey was wotprthless which was right below another troll comment.

So first two comments on an Apple article were fandroid trolls as usual.

And you chose to take it personally. You have no idea whether Remixfa was talking about you, and you could have chosen to leave it alone. And he's right, the survey is worthless, because with a sample size that small it's extremely easy to rig the results.

So what about his comment smacked of trolling, Taco, any more than "You like Android, therefore you don't have sex."

I keep a ready 6 pack in the back corner of the fridge just in case I ever have to grill something. I grill a lot for my family & I just need 1 or 2 cold ones while I grill. It's a tradition. lol

I'm not really sure why android fans are getting so upset. It's NOT saying 74% of Verizon users are going to buy the iPhone 5. It says that 74% of Verizon users who ALRADY WANT AN IPHONE are going to wait for the new one. That just makes sense. The could have tested more people, but the majority is just going to wait. It's almost here!

I don't understand why either, the iPhone 5 is about to be released. It only makes sense that people would wait for that instead of getting the iPhone 4

taco50 you always post on Android articles. I never ever ask you why? That is your right, just like it's my right to post here too. Don't go & type "then why are you swarming in here trying to discredit the survey. It makes sense and yet post after post saying the survey is bs." Your hypocritical a$s always posts on Android articles all the time. If it's good for you then it's good for everybody. We all have opinions & that is why we post on PhoneArena.com. It’s not the end of the world. I promise! lol

Not true I rarely post on android articles. Most of my posts are on Apple article. People like you live for Apple articles so you can troll. Unfortunately for you no matter how bad you want Apple to fail they're succeeding beyond anyones wildest dreams.

I honestly don't think they do, if they did, they wouldn't be making a big deal out of this. There is NOTHING wrong with this servey. Its just common sense, actually.
