Report: 64GB Model Accounts for Nearly One Quarter of All iPhone 4S Sales
The high-end 64GB model of the iPhone 4S represents nearly one-quarter of all new iPhone 4S sales, according to a new report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners. If the numbers are, indeed, accurate, that would represent a significant spike over previous generation iPhone buyers who opted for the 64-gigabyte model.
Perhaps more significant, however, is the study's revelation showing that more than one-third of all iPhone 4S buyers are "mobile transplants." That is, while the majority of iPhone 4S owners have upgraded from previous generations of the iPhone, 36 percent of buyers jumped ship from Android, BlackBerry and other competing platforms.
It should be noted that when CIRP previously investigated the number of iPhone 4S buyers who had come to the iPhone for the first time, that segment was only 18%. As 2011 wound to a close, the number of smartphone junkies who made the switch to Apple was dramatic, CIRP says.
The new report also found 53% of the new iPhone buyers have submitted their old devices (49% of which were iPhones) to the secondary market. “We think the secondary market for the iPhone is more established, since iPhone has the longest track record for a single device/platform, and for many it is the aspirational entry-point smartphone,” says Mike Levin, co-founder of CIRP.

Upgraded from an iPhone 4 to 4s......my screen is yellow.....so ugly. I know this is a bit off topic, but how common is this problem? I have read tons of forum posts, but can't get a clear answer. Will Apple replace this one with a new one? Will the new one be yellow as well? I went with black, but I have heard the white ones don't have the yellow tint problem as much. Any advice would be greatly appreciated....first time I have bought a Apple product and been disappointed.El Zurdo

Seeing as the 4S is the first iPhone to come in a 64GB configuration, I'd say the jump from 0% to ~25% of 64GB sales since the iPhone 4 is to be expected.

AT&T does not currently practice the banning of handsets if they're reported lost/stolen.
Lastly, a cop can lie about being a cop but they'll never lie and say it isn't stolen and then prosecute you for buying stolen merchandise if they just told you it isn't stolen. That's an easy case for the DA right there to say they won't prosecute since that is the exact situation of entrapment and is highly illegal for law enforcement to do.

When they come up with a 128 or 160 gig iphone, then I'll be interested in a high capacity iphone, until then, I'll stick with my trusty ipod classic.

If this was the case, and the yellow is actually "better", all of the iPhone 4s's would be "yellowish". Every time I look at my iPhone 4, then look at my brand new iPhone 4s...it's hard to look at it. The whites are whiter, the blacks are blacker (on the iPhone 4).
I believe this is a manufacturing problem, and people are just getting used to this new ugly yellow color (hence the reports of the problem simply "going away").
Or, people will not admit that Apple, can and does make mistakes, and are rationalizing that Apple actually designed this, using the arguement that the yellow screen is not at all a defect, but a planned design, with it's sole benefit being that it makes a small number of pictures look better....
Im sorry, but I will not settle for a iPhone that has a massive defect. The most impressive feature of the iPhone is its AMAZING screen, well not anymore! Not for me at least.
I would love to hear about these tests that you ran, that supposedly show that having a yellow screen is actually a good thing. I would love it if u could prove this to me! Because my eyes are telling me that my yellow screen is ugly!
How many others out there have settled for a yellowish screen?

I think iPhone 4 is much better than iPhone 4s.
