I have a 4 not a 4S yet. I do still have AT&T because I'm grandfathered in to unlimited data AND frequently use the data while talking on the phone (a feature I understand not to be available through Verizon.)
Things I use my phone for: texts, emails, camera, checking account monitoring, checking prices on amazon, and checking modmyi because I like the layout of the app better than the layout of the full-blown web page.
Overall the coverage in my area is pretty good. 3G speeds are beyond adequate for me. Not saying I won't eventually enjoy 4g, but I'm not dying for it.
Unlimited data is a must for me because the wifi in my house sucks (lousy ISP)... And the fact that I don't have a landline means I need to have the option of still using my data while making a call all on one device.
I think Samsung makes a nice tablet. I think their phone looks cheesy and childish. For whatever reason it just seems more geared towards a much younger crowd when I look at the physical design of the device.
Android is a little bit too wonky for me to want in a phone, though it does seem like it would make a lot of sense in a tablet, and I probably would choose Samsung for an android tablet (but that's neither here nor there).
Regardless, I thought the ads were so/so at first, but it seems like it'd be more effective advertising if they had just made one or two and then had a different theme (not droid fans showing off to people in line) for another set of commercials, and volleyed the two themes. But hey what do I know?
Side note: the fact that apple has FANS who are willing to wait for a day on a sidewalk is something that company should be proud as hell about. Samsung wishes so many people wanted to do that for their devices, but pretty much nobody does so instead they make fun of it. Cute! I've never waited on the sidewalk for any product because I like to give any new electronic 3-6 months for somebody to work out the kinks. But apple's packaging is a thing of beauty, and I buy products for my family (and talk them into buying more products of their own) from apple just so I can re-experience the thrill of opening their beautifully presented packages. There's my not-so-deep-dark secret.
As for the apple/pc commercials... Yes it was obviously a similar concept, but they managed to make PC a lovably obsolete goofball, a characterization which carries with it a certain amount of respect. In these commercials, Samsung just tries to make it look like anybody who buys an iPhone didn't know there were other options.... which is obviously not the case.

Samsung is bashing the same customers that they are counting on to enjoy/purchase their phones.

And how about just stopping posting "news" about this?
I was already sick of the first ad, now it's vomiting all the way around. Bashing apple? Only apple haters would say so. It's bashing customers, who, if i'm not mistaken by the definition of the "ad" should be attracted to the "device" which is being advertised.
Yeah... instead of making me want to buy galaxy phone it made me not willing to buy ANY samsung device. And oh boy, i do not have an iPhone, i have HTC...

What seemingly remains to be said is what android fans that fit samsungs applefanboy stereotype must think.

In one part, you say the commercials are dull. In another, you say they are hilarious.
Your being a fanboy in the review of the commercial as well.

I don't understand these ads. What company wouldn't be stoked about having its users camp out waiting for their newest product. All this shows is Apple's fans are more dedicated than the rest. If someone is willing to camp out in line for the iPhone then how is this ad insulted them going to change their minds? Bearing that in mind who then is Samsung targeting with these ads if not the Apple fans willing to camp out?
Also, why are there so many Android users posting on a site dedicated to iDevice news? Are these people trolling just for the sake of doing so or do they own at least an iPod, iPad, etc. ?

Just a tad bit of quick research before you post goes a long way.

Samsung is not releasing a Galaxy S II a couple of months after the Galaxy S II., a couple is 2 and the Galaxy S II was introduced in Feb 2011--a year ago !! and released in May.
what's more striking is that the iPhone 4S was released in what, in October and apple's most diehard fans are already talking about the iPhone 5 !!!
If the videos wont play on your iPhone try playing it on your Android phone instead.
