I would love to see the figures for how many T-Mobile customers are using unlocked iPhones. I wonder if it's at least 10%.

I don't know how accurate this info is. I understand that my personal viewpoint is much different than the whole US. As much as I love WebOS And my Pixi I know so many people with Android phones. Way more than iphones or webos phones. Almost as much as blackberries. Either way GO GO WEBOS! Gain marketshare! Next time don't make the mistake of going only to Sprint. Global Launch! Global! If you couldn't tell I like my Pixi more than my G1.

You can't even judge this by OS's because no one with a cell is loyal to an OS and most don't even realize that one is on their phone. They go for the phone and what it can do and what it looks like. The OS just happens to be on the phone for them...

Actually many people buy phones for the OS. There are many power users of windows mobile or android. They always stick to their OS and the general public prefer certain OS's to others

I agree. I buy phones because of the OS and so do scores of other people. I personally only use Android and Blackberry devices. Just my preference. My brother, for instance, only uses Symbian and Maemo. My wife will only use the IPhone. And so forth and so on. It seems to be the trend is leaning towards people using only specific OS's nowadays.
