iPhone OS upgrade poll ends, AT&T poll begins

With over 3,600 votes from iLounge readers, our latest poll—“Will you upgrade your current iPhone OS device to OS 4 if there’s a charge?”—has ended. Users of second- and third-generation iPod touches, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS units, and iPads were given options to say they will or won’t upgrade, with a separate option for those who either don’t own an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, or whose device isn’t compatible with OS 4.

While a majority of users in each device category said they would upgrade, the numbers varied by device, perhaps due to the limited number of new features available to iPhone 3G and second-generation iPod touch users, as well as the age of the devices. Among second-generation iPod touch users, 71% said they would upgrade if there’s a charge, while 29% said they would not. iPhone 3G users were similarly split, with 68% who said they would upgrade and 32% who said they would not. Third-generation iPod touch users were slightly more likely to upgrade if there’s a charge; 73% said they would upgrade and 27% said they would not. 77% of iPhone 3GS users—the largest user base in the survey—said they would upgrade, while 23% said they would decline. Finally, 87% of iPad users said they would upgrade if there were a charge to do so—something Apple has specifically indicated won’t be the case—while only 13% said they would not. Overall, 7% of readers said either their device wasn’t OS 4 compatible or they didn’t own an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Thanks for all your votes!

Our new poll focuses on AT&T’s new data plans and rates for the iPhone and iPad. We’d like to know how and whether the plans will affect you. Whether you own an iPhone, iPad, or are simply considering a purchase of one of Apple’s AT&T-tied devices, we want to hear your opinion. Our new poll, “How will AT&T’s new iPhone + iPad data plans affect you?” lets you voice that opinion. As always, you can find the iLounge poll in the left-hand column of the main iLounge.com home page. Cast your vote today!

I would change my wife to the $15 plan except she’s still on the original $20 iPhone plan (which includes texts).

I would change myself to the $25 plan except my work pays for this one and I’m not ready to permanently give up the unlimited plan.  I might eventually make the switch to save my company some money, but I want to see how my data usage changes with OS4.0 and new iPhone hardware (if my company buys it for me).

So no changes for us for now.

Had planned on leaving Sprint, paying the penalty and getting iPhones for wife and I.  With this new plan AT&T is not the place for us.  Will wait until the iPhone gets to sprint (if it ever does :-(  ).

I’m definitely keeping the $30 unlimited plan for my iPad, but may drop down to the $15 plan on my iPhone since I hardly ever use it these days.
