    Well, we had a wonderful Christmas here in Baton Rouge, except for one "spirit crushing" issue. My grandson wanted an iPhone 4 !! I pulled out all the big guns to convince him he wanted an Android phone. I showed him my rooted and "hacked to within an inch of it's life" Droid. I took him to the Verizon store and showed him the X, Dinc, Fascinate, D2, etc., etc. I showed him all the themes available. Nothing!! His friends all have iPhones and he would not be denied! I was humbled.

    Sometimes in life you find things that you have to do whether you like it or not. You don't have to enjoy it, you just have to do it. I BOUGHT AN iPHONE 4!!!!!:redface:

    Goes to show you why the iphone has mass appeal.

    Peer pressure.

    I came over to vzw after my contract with at&t ended.I had a iPhone 3GS I got a Dinc in July. I can say I will never ever recommend a iPhone to anyone. Verizons smartphones are so much superior then anyone elses. I feel bad for the poor kid.

    All I could think of in that responce was:

    Lemmings - will go get what others have because of peer pressure.

    Dodos - went by the way side because they acted like lemmings.

    So, sooner or later the iphone will go by the way of the dodo. But it is up to each and every one of us to demonstrate the power of android to those less fortunate. :)

    Lol, exactly. I don't usually argue with iphone users because i know its a great simple phone. but i always refer back to apples commercial during the superbowl to "break away from the norm." now jobs wants each phone to be the same with little customization. oh the irony.

    Nice to see the kid got what he wanted!

    ...however it highlights the 'sheep' mentality :)
