iphoneiPhone buyers have no regrets from USA Today reports on a survey by market researcher Interpret of Santa Monica, Calif. The survey surveyed 1,000 cellphone users between July 6-10th. It found good things about Apple’s new iPhone.

  • 90% of 200 owners said they were “extremely” or “very” satisfied with their phone
  • 85% said they are “extremely” or “very” likely to recommend the device to others
  • Three of 10 buyers were first-time Apple customers.
  • For 40%, iPhone is their first iPod.
  • Half the buyers switched from another carrier.
  • Of those, 35% paid an average $167 to break a contract.
  • IPhone owners surveyed expect to pay about $35 more in monthly service fees compared with their previous cellphones.

Very interesting statistics. I personally am a fan of my iPhone. I am already typing with two thumbs after a day. Also, I am typing with one thumb while driving (don’t tell anyone).

Here is a picture of my iPhone on my desk, near my Apple MacBook Pro.

    I would LOVE to have an iPhone. I just hate the walled garden of iTunes. I carry a 2Gig USB keychain with me everywhere. I would like to get rid of it and use the phone as a portable 8Gig hard drive, etc. But Nooooooo… You can’t transfer files without iTunes.

    Also… I can’t have iTunes on my computer at work without placing an official IT request, which would be denied anyway so iTunes only creates needless roadblocks for me.

    I can take my digital camera to Costco and transfer the images directly from my camera into the self serve kiosk. Can you do that with an iPhone? No… You simply can not do that sort of thing with an iPhone because of the needless iTunes exclusivity.

    I read that Apple will likely add this kind of functionality in the future. So… I’ll be lusting after the device but not purchasing one until they solve what I believe is a huge fundamental flaw.
