iPhone carrier poll ends, iOS 7 features poll begins

With over 1,600 votes from iLounge readers, our latest poll – “What’s most important to you when choosing an iPhone carrier?” – has now ended. Following the launch of the iPhone 5 on T-Mobile, we asked readers to let us know what was more important to them when choosing an iPhone carrier.

Pricing of monthly plans was the overall most important factor, according to forty-one percent of respondents. Thirty-one percent indicated that coverage area was critical, while thirteen percent indicated cellular data speeds would be their primary consideration. The remaining votes were divided between loyalty to a current carrier at six percent, and contract requirements, hardware upgrade eligibility, customer service and subsidized hardware pricing all pretty closely split at two to three percent each.

Block calls. Periodically I get up to twenty calls a week from call centers. That’s a “killer app” for me, no pun intended. I hesitated to update to OS 6, but OS 7 looks like a no-brainer for me because of this.

Never mind any of those other features.  I want to know if it fixes any of the bugs, bad design choices, and missing features in the Music and Videos apps.
