Apple iPhone 5s was the top selling smartphone in the U.S. last month

0. phoneArena posted on 05 Oct 2013, 12:09

For those who figured that the mid-range Apple iPhone 5c would cannibalize sales of the Apple iPhone 5s, guess again; the new full-featured version of the iPhone managed to lead all four major U.S. carriers in smartphone sales for the month of September even though the phone didn't launch until September 20th. Over the opening weekend, Apple said it sold 9 million units of the two new iPhone iterations...

I happy you love your wife. But isn't facebook a better place to express that? And even on Facebook, would your friends care?

lol ... he only has 1 friend; ninety-six or sixty-nine (something like that). Aside from that, he probably "friends" himself on Spacebook.

But, you're right; he's always expressing his personal life on here and it has nothing to do with tech. 'Let us' see: we know he just got married; his wife is a Kindergarten teacher who obviously can't teach him to write decent English; he's been driving a bus in rural Vegas for 17 years (probably how he met his wife - she was one of his unsuspecting passengers); has a son "supposedly" smart and "supposedly" plays baseball, football and basketball (just not hockey) - can you say projecting delusions of grandeur??; has a pooch named Torch (but, strangely, the dog looks better than he); had a corvette at one point (wooooo, I had a Porsche at one point - but, no need for a car here in Manhattan, we just rent for the day or two); grew up in a house with 10 brothers and sisters, that's why he's so starved for attention (middle child complex); moved out of his parents wayward home into an apartment with crappy cell phone service; what am I missing, I know he's posted a lot more??

I actually really like iOS 7. I didn't think I would but after using it I like it.

Haven't been following phone stuff much recently. Been doing other stuff. Traveled a bit, learned to cook, studying. I still read articles from time to time just stopped commenting as much.

Good choices; love the FFC on the G2, brings out my true an unfiltered gorgeousness.

The guy above who says he loves your screen name; don't take the bait. He's just a troll wannabe' with no life who tries his hardest to smooch with everyone on here. Always making benign comments in order to illicit some sort of response in order to engage you in some type of discourse. Go ahead, answer him or, better yet, ask him a few personal questions about his personal life but, be forwarned, you'll never be able to silence his banter.

There's no way he knows about the Yankees, he from somewhere out in Vegas and they do other (funny) stuff out there.

Yankees forever bro, other than A-Roid. Even saw Bernie Williams band play out here in Vegas. Lol you continue to crack me up with your childish jealousy of my life. I think its awesome that it bothers you so much, to see someone happy. Hey remember when Pedro slammed Don Zimmer, or when A-Roid fought Veritec? I love those old fireworks. Hated to see Boston come from 0-3 in 04' loved seeing Jeter dive in the stands and come up bloody with the ball. Yankees forever sonnn. Dude you're a pathetic lonely joke, I'm married and loving her to death lol. Don't hate dude, that's a sign of weakness. Oh and David Wells was the last bomber to throw a perfecto. May of 98 I watched every inning loser lol. What a joke, you're worse than Troll and he's horrible.

A-Rod the only good player left on the team and, in case you didn't know it, they all take [SOMETHING]!! All this criticism comes from self-righteous numb-nutzz who give a perfect apearance; they're the same numb-nutzz who go to church every Sunday for salavation and appear holier-than-thou only to turn around Sunday to start another 6-day sin fest when they lie to everyone and about anything and cast stones at everyone else - guess YOU know all about 'dat!!

LMAOOOOO Jeters clean as a whistle. Stop hating dude, A-Rod is toast. Hips are worn out, and can't hit now that biogenesis booted him. Oops how do I know that? I know nothing about the Yankees Jeter forever son. The captain #2 Derek Jeta Derek Jeta. I wish they never made Jaba a starter though. He was lights out as a setup man. Petite is getting long in the tooth though, and CC needs to lay off the twinkies. This is usually when he's gotten hot. karoda is What 11-12 or something like that, and I hated to see Mo go. Mo Rev is a legend in pinstripes dude. Greatest closer of all time. No way I should know that though. I know nothing about the Yankees JETA JETA JETA JETA.

I warned you 'Derek' but you didn't listen. BTW, I say Joe Namath but, I don't care if I'm wrong because I don't need to validate myself with something so benign by being right about it.

Wats wrong is I'm primarily an iOS user, I'm vocal, I don't follow the crowd and bash people for their choice. PAPINYC can't silence me, and that drives him nuts. I also married my sweetie, and I'm happy about it and make that known, so he dislikes that too. I also think, and I say this based on his posts, that he's racist. Could be mistaken, but he's definitely led me to think that by what he posts. PA has limited him a few times for it, but hey it's cool. Internet bullies love this medium, but wouldn't dare step to your face. Just wait till this guy called Dorothy69 is back from his 7 day ban, then it'll be crazy. This post should get a very good response from PAPINYC. Troll is insignificant though.

Seems like you all have been at it for a while. About being racist thats not right but i guess its something that PA should not allow. Im all about talking smack on technology but dont really know what to say about the rest. I gotta say some of the comments made laugh. Sorry man no disrespect.

See, it's people like you that give black folks a bad rep', the first thing out of your mouth is always racism, like, "oh, that driver in the Porsche cut off my bus:" racist!! Or, Ronald Reagan cut welfare: racist!! Or, the attendant at the gas station asked me for I.D. with my credit card: racist!! At some point you're gonna' have to come out of the 1960's and realize that not everyone is against you because you're black; it's just cuz' you's a triteful a$$ fool.

And, yes, I'm sure your "vocal" abilities are as good as you say they are but, I'm sure it's one of the few talents that you've been able to develope while sitting for eight hours; that seated height gives you a great vantage point.

Of course it made no sense [to you], you think everyone is out to get you because you're black but, grow the Eff'up and come out of that 60's mindset of yours'. I realize life as a child must've been rough for you but, let it go; that's probably why you thought the best you could do in life was what you've been doing for the last 17 years.

Boy I guess we'll be at this all day dude wow! I had a marvelous childhood, and both parents are alive and still live in the family home we grew up in. Never said the last 17 years was the best, but 65,000 a year ain't bad. I'm starting to get a little bored with you, so I ask. What do you wish to accomplish with these rants? I'm not leaving the site, you can't shut me up, you can always catch a flight to Vegas and try. Tell me, the PA users, and moderators what you hope to accomplish, cuz it's getting boring going back and forth with you dude. I can care less about trying to one up you, look l'll let you win this battle of words cuz it truly means nothing to me. It was fun for a while, but now it's just pointless. I drive a bus, and instruct students to drive, my wife's a kindergarten teacher, my son gets excellent grades, stays outta trouble, and plays the big 3 sports. He doesn't field well, so he won't go pro at baseball, he will dunk on you though. I'm trying to give you all the ammo you need to stage a huge verbal assault, to which I promise not to respond to. I figure if I stop responding, you'll go away. So go ahead unleash a good one, and bring Troll In on it too. I black, handsome, tall, fit, work in county transit, great kid, smart sexy wife, have my health, and so does my family oh and we have a Great Dane named torch, who's 1 yr old. What else, I have a jeep, and a dodge charger rt, I used to have a Vette but no longer do. I'm trying to think of everything I can to give you a ton of ammo, cuz after your next tirade, there'll be no response. I'm done it's boring now, and pointless. I'm getting back to talking tech. My wife read over all this, and said baby their idiots, let em win so I'm letting you win so I can get back to enjoying PA. ENJOY YOUR VICTORY DUDE goodbye no more responses/replies...later dude.

Oh well, now you have one more saving grace: Torch (would've had two but, you sold the Vette). Hey, if your pretty little wife teaches Kindergarten, why doesn't she teach you something?? Anyway, dude, I'm done; that's it; I'm not replying to you anymore; I'm finished; it's over, I tell you (OVER); you couldn't pay me a million pesos to engage you; no amount of gold
can buy me; I'm threw wit' you; talk to the hand cuz' I'm 'bout to roll out; peace (and all that jazz); holla' ............

No dude, you're way off. You know that incurable thing known as leprosy; he's like that.

Here's some background:


Since you're coming from PhoneDog you'll learn soon enough; this isn't Phone (objective) Arena, it's iPhone (biAsed) Arena.

One of my eployees turned me in to this phone craze thing that we all have. I have always used Blackberry and from there iPhones. Ive heard about how PA makes the iphone better than what it is. I wont lie i still love iPhones for the keyboard and how it would make everything so easy but with my LG G2 i cant seem to put it down, but yet i dont see a lot of talk from PA about how good the phone is. A week in to it and im still customizing it. I guess all i can say is keep the smack talk coming but leave personal life out of the posting. As for PA i hope they are not what you say.

Woowww! You are either googling every important Yankee moment or you are just a great yankee fan. I remembered being like you and defending Apple on every conversation but honestly Android is a little better. In my honest opinion. Im hoping one day Apple will do something about the screen size then i will be back but for the mean time ill be playing my music from my HTC ONE. Oh just so you know i kept my earbuds from my iphone. That i can say nobody makes them better than Apple.

I was an Apple fan, too, until I had switched to Android and haven't looked back since. I didn't know much about phones; all I knew was iPhone. Then, I did my research and got all into phone tech and everything changed. Awaiting my Galaxy Note 3, now.
