    I mean ya, you cant trust just people I no.... But I have not had one person around me say they are getting dropping an android phone for iphone. 54% sounds way to high. (BB maybe idk though I do tend to make iphone users hate me because they look like fools around the moto droid lol

    Well none of it matters. will find out in a year or so...

    The first clue should have been the website "apple insider". How many other users go to Apple Insider that aren't apple fans? I didn't know it existed until someone on this Droid forum posted a link there.

    Seems odd to call a survey bogus without actually looking into how the survey was actually performed. I mean, it's really just as bogus IMO. Two bogus pieces of info do not make a fact.

    "People around you" are not a statistically significant sample, despite how often they're used in an attempt to prove a point by forum users (here and elsewhere).

    They may have chosen the survey to cite but they didn't carry out the survey.

    As some of you can see, I had to do some editing in this thread. Please keep in mind that the Droid Forums does not allow profanity. The video and quoted post following the video was deleted.

    Keep it "family friendly" from this point on.

    Sorry, didn't realize it was such a big deal. I thought a link would be okay. I've definitely seen far worse... noted, won't happen again...

    That doesn't excuse someone trying to pass a ''droid is better than iphone because I own a droid'' argument as an intellectually honest argument...or you trying to defend his intellectual dishonesty simply by saying ''its a droid forum''....like that makes it ok.

    But this IS a DROID fanboi forum sir

    This made me giggle a bit. IF true, that would mean 54% of the forums users here would also switch. Highly unlikely. Bahahahahahahhaha. That is if they did a real non-bias survey. Which would have to be done on a MASSIVE scale and the only people that could pull off a true "survey" of that magnitude would be verizon its self. So I also call BS.

    I know a few people who left their bb's for the VZW iPhone. I doubt it will be half of all users from droid/bb's.
