According to data from the latest ChangeWave wireless survey, there is strong demand for an iPhone running on Verizon Wireless’ network amongst current Verizon customers. Among Verizon, Sprint/Nextel, and T-Mobile customers, a total of 49% said they were either somewhat or very likely to buy an iPhone for themselves or someone they know if it became available on their current carrier. Of that 49%, 16% said they were “very likely” to purchase, while an additional 33% said they were “somewhat likely.” When broken down to only Verizon subscribers, the overall total of customers likely to buy an iPhone on the carrier rises to 53%, with 19% saying they would be “very likely” to buy a Verizon iPhone, joined by 34% that would be “somewhat likely” to make the purchase. By comparison, the total percentages were lower on Sprint/Nextel (44%) and T-Mobile (39%). The survey also looked at overall carrier satisfaction, with AT&T tied for the lowest percentage of respondents who said they were “very satisfied” with their service; AT&T customers also reported the largest percentage of dropped calls. ChangeWave’s survey was conducted in March among 4,040 consumers. [via MDN]
