    Default 99% of iPhone Owners are Satisfied


    Apple's incredible success in selling more iPhones could be due to one new statistic.

    According to pollster ChangeWave
    a whopping 99% of iPhone users call themselves "satisfied" or "very satisfied" with their device. In fact, those reporting "very satisfied" made up 74% of respondents.

    This blows away RIM, with only 43% of users reporting they are "very satisfied" with their BlackBerry. Apple has jumped from holding 17% of smartphone market share one year ago to 30% today. The iPhone is hot on RIM's heels, as the BlackBerry has 40% of the smartphone market.
    According to Paul Carlton, research director at ChangeWave:
    [Smartphones have] sucked up market share from a whole bunch of devices, including PCs, phones and game consoles. No other consumer electronics item did anything like this during the recession.

    Apple sold a record 7.4 million iPhones in the third quarter of 2009. When asked what smartphone they plan to buy within 90 days, 36% of consumers said the iPhone. Only 27% planned to purchase a BlackBerry.
    AT&T reported a record third quarter of its own with 3.2 million iPhone activations. The company added 1.3 million new customers during the same time period thanks to the iPhone.

    Some analysts have predicted that an end to Apple's exclusivity agreement with AT&T would further increase the iPhone's market share.

    ok, so how many or how little people did they ask, cause in all honesty, im not satisfied with the stock iphone in the slightest, so much needs to be done before i would even consider saying im happy with it.

    stupid things that can be done through cydia like themes, 5 icon dock, 5 rows and coloums, these small yet usefull things make the iphone more useable and more fun.

    Why don't Apple try targeting the business users more now that they obviously have personal users licked.

    Maybe create and sell a "business user iPhone .ipsw" at a small price with lots of stock apps and features designed for business use.

    Maybe if the business users were given something that is focused more on business use then Apple would dominate the smartphone industry.

    Just a thought.

    That's coz they only did a survey with Apple fanboys.

    Do the survey with normal everyday people and you will get a different figure. Everyone I know with an iphone is not really happy with it. They are the first week and the first week after jailbreaking it but thats about it.

    Unless you're reading a line in the article that cannot be viewed on my screen, there is no mention of the demographic in which the survey was taken.

    A more accurate assumption might be that assuming that all these iPhone owners own computers and that most computers on the market are Windows PCs- most iPhone owners use Windows? Dunno bout the "fanboy"ism there...

    as just about everyone else pointed out- I love my iPhone but, I would not care for the ole girl nearly as much if it was not for jailbreaking. there are so many things I need from there to be satisfied. When I have all my jailbroken additions I have NEVER once considered getting anything new that has come out. Now unlocking and switching to tmo, that has definitely crossed my mind.

    While I wouldn't say that they only asked fanboys, I do question the sample size and demographic of people surveyed as well. Honestly the surveys that get reported on the web generally have no scientific merit whatsoever and it is my opinion that the findings tend to be heavily skewed towards the answer the surveyor wanted to find. Example: surveying people you see walking on the street browsing something on their iphone. While I don't know that this was the method of sampling, I imagine it had to be something similar as you would want to collect data from only thse individuals who actually have a phone. The problem here is that the average guy that is actively using the phone is not going to tell you it is the biggest POS the world has ever seen. Not to say that the iPhone isn't a great phone, I love mine, but there is something left to be desired and 99% is just an unrealistic number considering the circumstances.

    People, people, common! It's a freaking PHONE, for God's sake! It won't do calls better just because you personalized it

    Besides, we cannot forget that the majority(if not all) users that post into forums like these have a fair knowledge of tech issues, and we do NOT represent the majority of iPhone users.

    By the way, I was jailbroken and unlocked for a while(much because iPhone was not selling in my country at that time), and used to tweak my iPhone in every possible way. But today I realized that, at least for me, the advantages of having a jailbroken iPhone doesn't pay for the cost/risk of constantly seek/wait for the next "hole" to be discovered and exploited.

    Don't get me wrong, I know there's a bunch of nice things you can do if you're Jailbroken, but mostly it appeals for we, the techies, and not so much for the average phone user.

    if that 99% is of jailbreak iphone users, then, yes.
    stock ones are lacking a lot in terms of look, functionality and usability.
    i need my lockinfo, popup blocker, ifile, sbsettings, status notifier and thats just a few. how ppl put up with normal ones is beyond me.
