Verizon iPhone poll ends, protection poll begins

With over 3,100 votes from iLounge readers, our most recent poll—“Are you going to buy a Verizon iPhone 4?” has ended. Individual yes and no responses were provided for AT&T, Verizon, and other carriers’ customers, as well as an option for readers who don’t live in the U.S.

Over a quarter of respondents—26 percent—said they plan on buying a Verizon iPhone 4. Of those, 66 percent were current Verizon customers, 25 percent were current AT&T customers, and eight percent were customers of another U.S. carrier. Perhaps unsurprisingly, of the 58 percent of overall respondents saying they weren’t going to buy a Verizon iPhone, the vast majority said they were current AT&T customers—79 percent, to be exact. Only 11 percent of those not planning to buy a Verizon iPhone were current Verizon customers, while another 10 percent were customers of another carrier. Finally, 15 percent of overall respondents said they don’t live in the U.S. Thanks for all your votes!

Our new poll focuses on iPod and iPhone protection. We’d like to know if you use a case or film on your iPod or iPhone, and why or why not? Do you use it for protection, to change the device’s looks, or for a combination of those reasons? Or do you keep your device bare to preserve its looks, because you don’t think it needs protection, or for both those reasons? Our new poll, “Do you use a case or body film with your iPod or iPhone?” lets you answer that question. As always, you can find the iLounge Poll in the left-hand column of the main homepage. Cast your vote today!

What about “yes, mostly to avoid antenna issues” ?

My concern about switching to a Verizon iPhone is that the technology under the hood is so vastly different from that of the AT&T model, that it is for all intents and purposes a first generation device. Ever since the first iPhone was introduced in 2007, the plight of the “early adopter” has not been a categorically happy one. Sometimes the phone doesn’t perform as well as they had hoped, or they are racked with overwhelming regret when the next generation device is introduced with enhanced features, better performance, or both. I don’t want to be “that guy.” And that means I have to wait.

Why don’t you put up a graph of these polls when you post them. I know you have them for when we take the pol, so I know that it would be easy to put in the article.

Sounds like a smart plan. One that most don’t consider. FWIW, I read Apple had challenges building this device, and had an insane number of engineers working on it.
I’ve never been burned by Apple, but that doesn’t mean it can’t happen.
Good luck!
