    Default So many more iPhone users than any other phone

    It's amazing how many people own and have iPhones. You get on a plane and just walking up and down the isles everyone has iPhones. It seems to just be dominating the phone industry now

    I notice a ton of people using iPhones, probably more then any other one phone, but I think it's like when you own a car, you just notice what you have more then anything else.

    This is probably just the area I'm always around or my network of friends. But it seems like most people have droids, others are still using basic phones, and a few have iphones.
    I forgot about BB, I think I see more people with those than iphones

    I was at a conference in New Orleans a couple months ago and I saw majority of Android and Blackberry. I didn't see too many carrying an iPhone.

    iPads...now that's a different story. Those things were everywhere.

    I agree w E_Brown! I just got my iPhone the second week of Nov and I've been seeing them EVERYWHERE! Before that I had an Evo and of course during that time everyone I saw had an Android phone of some sort.

    Is there really a best? All phones have their pro's and con's. iPhone works best for me, but a lot of people I know think Android is the best. Sorry, I don't like fanboy's of any brand. If I had enough money, I would be carrying an iPhone, BB, and Android. I like them all for different reasons.

    Was at Disneyland recently. Everybody seemed to have iPhones. Now with more carriers, growth should continue.

    While shopping at various stores and lots of them on this past Black Friday, everyone I saw using a phone was using an iPhone...in my area you rarely see anything else..

    We have one BB user in the family and the only reason she still has one is because her contract isn't up yet, but in a few months, she'll be a proud iPhone owner...we are one big happy iPhone family!

    My whole family is on iPhone now too, except for 1 lone Android user. She talked it up so much when she got it, I think she won't get an iPhone now, just to save face.

    I think that's how my husband is he has iPhone envy but wont admit that it's better than an Android especially since he doesn't take full advantage of the Android platform.

    Most people that have androids don't take full advantage of the platform. My sister has had hers like a year and a half, and every screen looks the same way as when it came out of the box. She calls texts facebooks and plays angrybirds. IPhone does those things nicely and has a much better battery life.

    Lots are carrying iPhones. I think it's got so much to offer...Easy to use, integrated and plenty of apps.

    I see a load of iPhones and Androids daily here in LA. Spot a BlackBerry every once in a while, but not nearly as many as I did a couple years ago. As someone else said, iPads are a different story completely.. It's like 20 to 1 the number of iPads to Android tabs I see.

    That was me but I still switched. Lol I admitted that I talked it up so much trying to convince myself that I DIDNT want an iPhone....which I secretly wanted since I got my iPod touch 2 years ago. Haha

    Default i think it depends on where you are....

    For instance, on a commuter train you will see a lot of BB, or a trade show....but that is changing.
    Rim is losing ground fast. The iPhone is taking over. I work for a very large bank, and I see iPhones all over the place especially with the under 45 crowd. Go to a mall on a Saturday and you'll see a lot of iPhones and Droids.

    This applies to most people i know, regardless of platform. But especially android. And probably many in the forums here.
