    For most, purchase of an iPhone is mostly hype and a failure to understand the BS the contracts and service quality issues either Verizon or AT&T will offer. They are the only 2 carriers in our service area. I like to call our choices "dumb and dumber" with the option of dumber being dependent on your coverage in a particular location and what POS phone you have.

    An often ignored fact (or barely mentioned by sellers) is that choosing the iPhone over the other replacement options AT&T gave to Alltel customers is that a new contract would be signed and unlimited data would go away. I have an HTC Aria since I wanted to try Android and it was a free and clear phone with no contract issues. I have had issues with internal memory limitations and the HTC Mail program leaking memory and not cleaning up very well after itself but otherwise happy with the phone. Seems like every device is gonna have some quirk or limitation either by design or after losing favor to the next shiny thing they are marketing.

    Actually TFA pointed out that the Android users were the only ones who could correctly answer that they "already own one", since there are 4G Android phones on the market (such as the HTC Evo 4G and the Samsung Infuse 4G). There is no such thing as a 4G iPhone or Blackberry; they don't exist yet.

    29% of Android owners do too - some may be legit 4G phones, but those phones sure as hell don't make up 29% of the market.

    24% of Blackberry too - even though they don't offer a 4G model.
