How much did the iPhone change your life?
# ResponseĀ Date Why?
1 Oct 25, 2011 4:15 PM I do not own one.
2 Oct 25, 2011 1:54 PM don't own one
3 Oct 25, 2011 1:52 PM Don't have one :(
4 Oct 24, 2011 11:00 AM Don't have one - and given that I'm not much a "phone" person it probably wouldn't change my life that much.
5 Oct 21, 2011 5:23 AM made my phone so much better --
6 Oct 20, 2011 1:48 PM hate typing on them so stayed with Blackberry
7 Oct 19, 2011 10:26 AM I don't have one yet!
8 Oct 18, 2011 12:34 PM Don't have one
9 Oct 17, 2011 1:42 PM For the worse! I hated it. It never worked in San Francisco and it made my business life a living hell with constantly dropped calls. I ditched it in 2010 for a Sprint EVO and the Android platform. Much happier now.
10 Oct 17, 2011 12:43 PM Didn't have to lug around a PC
11 Oct 17, 2011 11:35 AM I only now am getting my first iPhone, but my husband is permanently attached to his, and uses it to check Facebook and Twitter more than he uses his laptop.
12 Oct 17, 2011 11:31 AM I had several phones before I finally bought an iPhone. I don't remember loving any of them. That's the genius of Apple. They are purveyors of joy.
13 Oct 17, 2011 10:03 AM Now own Android, but iPhone made the marketplace for smart phones.
14 Oct 17, 2011 9:34 AM Do not have one.
15 Oct 17, 2011 9:12 AM Blackberry user
16 Oct 17, 2011 8:59 AM Kind of in annoying way. I need it for everything, which makes me too dependent on it. It is convenient though
17 Oct 17, 2011 8:54 AM not available with service provider of choice and the unlocked version is way to expensive.
18 Oct 17, 2011 8:53 AM instant everything_all information at your finger tips+ phone, camera etc.
19 Oct 17, 2011 8:28 AM I do not know how I lived without it.
20 Oct 17, 2011 4:56 AM I didn't have one until recently (August 2011) but had an iPod Touch for 2 years
21 Oct 17, 2011 3:55 AM Have only recently got one - and am still a Blackberry user!
22 Oct 16, 2011 11:29 PM LOVE it. video calling on the go. no more getting lost - having a built in map system. the APPs alone are pretty great. only down side is the roaming when travelling abroad.... note to self turn off network!
23 Oct 16, 2011 11:13 PM Mini-computer with you wherever you go, and fun -- provides unlimited entertainment!
24 Oct 16, 2011 11:03 PM Easier to communicate
25 Oct 16, 2011 5:36 PM Love having information at my fingertips. Had a blackberry for years that was worthless for the internet. LOVE my iPhone!!
26 Oct 14, 2011 8:18 PM I still have a Blackberry, company-issued, unfortunately. I hope to move to an iPhone or droid
27 Oct 14, 2011 7:42 PM dont have one. blackberry
28 Oct 14, 2011 7:08 PM It put a computer at my fingertips.
29 Oct 14, 2011 6:38 PM I want one bad
30 Oct 14, 2011 4:32 PM Don't have one. Sprint has been a client and I will only buy products from our clients. HOWEVER, I am counting the days until Sprint has it and my phone renews. I'll be there on day one. I am a total believer in Apple.
31 Oct 14, 2011 4:31 PM It changes how I do things on a daily basis including social media, business, personal, etc.
32 Oct 14, 2011 4:29 PM Beholdent to a company blackberry -- gross.
33 Oct 14, 2011 4:27 PM don't have one.
34 Oct 14, 2011 4:26 PM Do not have one. Looked into getting one but compare it to other smartphones
35 Oct 14, 2011 3:56 PM I have a severely bad sense of direction, and the Google Maps function has helped immeasurably with that.
36 Oct 14, 2011 3:02 PM don't have one
37 Oct 14, 2011 2:59 PM Don't use it.
38 Oct 14, 2011 2:28 PM I love being able to get emails, phone and texts and utube all in one item, and the weather!
39 Oct 14, 2011 2:14 PM I don't have an iPhone but the innovation of it made other manufactures step up their game in the development of their own device. Easier to use, more features, etc. My Android wouldn't be what it is without the iPhone.
40 Oct 14, 2011 1:11 PM It combined everything that i carried around.
41 Oct 14, 2011 12:46 PM It's basically become an extension of my hand when I travel.
42 Oct 14, 2011 11:35 AM It's sad, but I really don't think I could function day to day without it. I put off getting one for a long time out of fear of dependency, and my fears were totally realized once I finally did it. Voicemail, email, finding directions, weather reports, translation, texting. World changer. Texting alone on an iphone was a revolution.
43 Oct 14, 2011 11:32 AM It's extremely versatile, portable, with intuitive software that's modular and upgradeable. Every detail is carefully engineered to be sleek, visually appealing as well as completely functional. At any time it allows me to connect to anyone, play games, hear music, surf the internet, take photos, download useful apps among many other things. It gives me access to just about anything literally at my fingertips. It has completely changed my life in countless ways.
44 Oct 14, 2011 11:08 AM Don't have one, and I think phones would have gotten pretty close to where they are now even without the iPhone.
45 Oct 14, 2011 11:02 AM Connection to web and email in one device!
46 Oct 14, 2011 10:55 AM Have an Android.
47 Oct 14, 2011 10:54 AM I haven't bought one yet, but I will.
48 Oct 14, 2011 10:53 AM My first and last smart phone. Having used Mac all my life up to its release, I was still blown away that the company I loved could blow me away once more. Its ease of use and of course the compatibility with itunes and my Mac were a no brainer.
49 Oct 14, 2011 10:48 AM OMG! How did I live before my iphone??
50 Oct 14, 2011 10:46 AM I was skeptical at first. I held out until the the launch of the iPhone 3G and then caved. I don't see the point in owning any other smart phone. This iPhone has saved me in more sticky situations and curious adventures than I care to mention.
51 Oct 14, 2011 10:44 AM I'm brand loyal, and travel quite a bit for work, so Verizon was my choice of mobile service. As soon as the iPhone was made available to Verizon, I purchased one. There was a recent article in the NYTimes about how people's emotions towards their iPhone is love. That's me!
52 Oct 14, 2011 10:43 AM LOVE my iphone, can't imagine living without it
53 Oct 14, 2011 10:40 AM not use
54 Oct 14, 2011 10:39 AM Everything in one place
55 Oct 14, 2011 10:36 AM My iphone goes with me everywhere, without it I would not be able to communicate, find places, play games, or email and text.
56 Oct 14, 2011 10:35 AM It pushed for the Android technology, which I use.
57 Oct 14, 2011 10:26 AM I am lost without it. I can find my way around town, not wait for a bus, check out movie times. What more can I say?
58 Oct 14, 2011 10:26 AM I just got my iPhone and I LOVE it. It keeps me connected to my friends and family, which is a big deal for me. I am not a girl who likes to boot up my computer all the time to check email at home, so having my iPhone really helped out when i needed to check for messages on the go without the hassle of my computer. I also have apps like Word Feud, which lets me not only communicate, but play games with my best friend in London - major bonus.
59 Oct 14, 2011 10:23 AM I use de mobile only for calls. I have an old Nokia.
60 Oct 14, 2011 10:09 AM Just watching my kids interact with touch games has changed my life, but the device itself is a definite game changer. Two words video calls. We are in the future.
61 Oct 14, 2011 10:08 AM iPhone also has made my life so much easier! Whether I'm searching for directions to a place nearby or need to check my email right away, my iPhone allows me to do that.
62 Oct 14, 2011 9:50 AM But soon that will all change, getting my first iphone tomorrow :)
63 Oct 14, 2011 9:34 AM Was easy enough to get me hooked on Mac
64 Oct 14, 2011 9:27 AM Don't have a cell. Am I out of it or what?
65 Oct 14, 2011 9:10 AM Have a Droid instead
66 Oct 14, 2011 9:08 AM The iPhone is more than a phone, it keeps me connected with my family and work. It helps me find where I'm going and is a perfect diversion during those times when we're waiting and bored.
67 Oct 14, 2011 9:07 AM Didn't know what I was missing until I got one
68 Oct 14, 2011 8:49 AM My iPhone was my first device in which I can check email on the go so I think that's changed the way all of us work. Though, I think its affected my life mostly because it allows me to run on my own whenever I want. I'm a runner and a lady so running on your own isn't always safe, but my iPhone helps me feel safe because I know I can call someone if I'm miles from home and run into a sticky situation. It also gives my family peace of mind in these situations.
69 Oct 14, 2011 8:39 AM It's the one product I don't have. Yet.
70 Oct 14, 2011 8:34 AM It forced Google to invent the Android which is the preferrred smaertphone for me.
71 Oct 14, 2011 8:31 AM Company didn't support, so I still have a blackberry
72 Oct 14, 2011 8:30 AM Mainly the access to business email and calendar while traveling for work, better communication with clients, better work product. And that is not even the half of it.
73 Oct 14, 2011 8:16 AM Haven't ventured into the world of iPhones yet. Still think the Blackberry is more purpose built for (Non creative) business function.
74 Oct 14, 2011 7:04 AM Don't have one - don't have a smart phone.
75 Oct 14, 2011 5:25 AM Don't have one. I prefer the Android phone -- more free apps, better integration with other serives (e.g. Google contacts, Yahoo etc.), design aesthetics almost as good (HTC), handset performance better (HTC) and handset chearper (HTC).
76 Oct 14, 2011 4:57 AM If you say smartphone, I am with you.
77 Oct 14, 2011 1:30 AM Never used, not interested in it.
78 Oct 14, 2011 12:30 AM My husband is addicted to his! My younger son loves it.
79 Oct 14, 2011 12:03 AM i like it but i am not a cult apple guy it is convenient
80 Oct 13, 2011 11:06 PM Don't own one...yet.
81 Oct 13, 2011 10:18 PM best...phone...ever
82 Oct 13, 2011 10:13 PM I have an iPad and don't need it. My kids have them and it has given them options that were not available.
83 Oct 13, 2011 10:12 PM I have an iPad and don't need it. My kids have them and it has given them options that were not available.
84 Oct 13, 2011 10:11 PM Don't use an iPhone.
85 Oct 13, 2011 10:06 PM I still dont have one because I like to choose my phone supplier
86 Oct 13, 2011 10:05 PM great product with desired features and functions. I cannot image using any other phone.
87 Oct 13, 2011 9:16 PM Nivana. I never did Palm or Blackberrry, jumped from a basic cell phone to having total connectivity when I traveled. It was liberating. The camera was extraordinary. I could get the music too (if I wanted). Calendar synch, integration of phone and computer, everything!
88 Oct 13, 2011 9:01 PM Don't have one, probably because I have a "Touch" and am not that enamored with it.
89 Oct 13, 2011 8:54 PM Blackberry!
90 Oct 13, 2011 8:33 PM Enjoy the connection wherever I am.
91 Oct 13, 2011 7:58 PM android
92 Oct 13, 2011 7:54 PM use all the time
93 Oct 13, 2011 7:47 PM More powerful platform of computing, reduced to handset size. Combined three- to four-streams of things that I have to do into one device.
94 Oct 13, 2011 7:31 PM No other product is so complete-, portable, aesthetically elegant and functional!
95 Oct 13, 2011 7:15 PM Never owned that environmental disaster.
96 Oct 13, 2011 6:58 PM I never had one ... yet. But I have to admit it made the other smart phone folks work harder to make their stuff better.
97 Oct 13, 2011 6:47 PM It's not a phone. It's my entire life in one elegant little package.
98 Oct 13, 2011 6:40 PM BlackBerry. I know. I know. I'll have the 4S in the next few weeks. iCloud will push me to finally make the change.
99 Oct 13, 2011 6:07 PM I think of the iPhone as a modern Swiss army knife. It is now an indispensable part of my daily life, both inside and outside of work.
100 Oct 13, 2011 5:59 PM do not own
101 Oct 13, 2011 5:59 PM Made using a necessary device a joy plus some useful tools.
102 Oct 13, 2011 5:58 PM Are you kidding? Still wish it had a keyboard, tho -- I have fat fingers.
103 Oct 13, 2011 5:47 PM Never owned an iPhone, but without the iPhone, mobile technology would likely still be chasing the desktop paradigm.
104 Oct 13, 2011 5:42 PM The iPhone was my first smartphone and as much as I love it, it is a curse too with always being connected. I love being able to look things up at the blink of an eye, check in on FourSquare and keep status updates fresh on Facebook. I feel like I am invincable because I am armed with all my content in the palm of my hand.
105 Oct 13, 2011 5:41 PM I don't like to talk on the phone but I do need to communicate with work and home frequently - texting and portable email changed my life. The apps are a nice bonus.
106 Oct 13, 2011 5:34 PM I don't like the exclusivity with phone cos., etc.
107 Oct 13, 2011 5:30 PM I was a palm guy well before the first iphone, so I've been use touch-screen devices for over a decade
108 Oct 13, 2011 5:18 PM Phone with additional features unlike anything before.
109 Oct 13, 2011 5:18 PM Dont have one (yet)
110 Oct 13, 2011 5:06 PM have only had one for a few months so everyday brings a new delight
111 Oct 13, 2011 4:59 PM I don't have one but I rely heavily on those around me that do when we're lost or need to find a restaurant or a store.
112 Oct 13, 2011 4:58 PM It's between somewhat and totally. Its existence made a dramatic difference in capabilities of all mobile phones. I much prefer my iPhone to my Blackberry for ease of use.
113 Oct 13, 2011 4:49 PM Love my iPhone, can't live without it. I'm an app junkie ... and always have my Email and calendar in my hand now. Fab
114 Oct 13, 2011 4:44 PM Like having a smart phone, not specificallt iphone
115 Oct 13, 2011 4:27 PM Thx to iPhone, I can leave my home office, and no one will ever know.
116 Oct 13, 2011 4:26 PM Hate cell phones but since you can not live without one, why not Apple.
117 Oct 13, 2011 4:25 PM Love it
118 Oct 13, 2011 4:24 PM again, it demonstrated how technology could enhance and simplify ordinary tasks.
119 Oct 13, 2011 4:23 PM my phone became more than a phone
120 Oct 13, 2011 4:21 PM Don't have one.
121 Oct 13, 2011 4:19 PM I'm a BB user
122 Oct 13, 2011 4:19 PM My iPhone is my third smartphone but the only one I am confident is compatible with my Mac. I love all the features and the ability to sync with my Mac.
123 Oct 13, 2011 4:19 PM Samsung Galaxy so much better.
124 Oct 13, 2011 4:14 PM Working for IBM I was an indentured Blackberry carrier. Once I left and began using an iPhone I accomplished so much more that I wanted to on that damn Blackberry like music and photo management.
125 Oct 13, 2011 4:13 PM My entire life is in my phone.I do everything through it and with it.
126 Oct 13, 2011 4:13 PM First the reception and sound quality, both in and out, are excellent. The second day in use, we relied on the browser to access files immediately. A lifesaver that day that's made our life simpler to wake up at 3 o'clock in the morning and check e-mail; darn that machine.
127 Oct 13, 2011 4:12 PM Social & content on the go! I literally have everything I need--photos, files, info, you name it--100% of the time.
128 Oct 13, 2011 4:06 PM Influenced all smart phones which I can't live without today
129 Oct 13, 2011 4:00 PM Goodbye, clunky old phone plus Palm Pilot plus camera plus whatever else I used to lug around.
130 Oct 13, 2011 3:57 PM Simplified everything for my mobile connection.
131 Oct 13, 2011 3:54 PM It's a phone, yes, but more so it is a very personal computer with my entire life on it. I can leave my laptop, but I go nowhere without my iPhone.
132 Oct 13, 2011 3:53 PM It's about to
133 Oct 13, 2011 3:51 PM Not using it. Yet. Considering the iPhone 4S.
134 Oct 13, 2011 3:49 PM It made me more in touch with family, friends, and work while on-the-go (sometimes too much:))
135 Oct 13, 2011 3:48 PM Today I would be totally lost without it. (I mean that literally as well as figuratively)
136 Oct 13, 2011 3:47 PM Just love it prior phones were just clunkers
137 Oct 13, 2011 3:47 PM My work & life simply does not require that I am iPhoned at all times.
138 Oct 13, 2011 3:45 PM My husband got me one and I did not want it. Now I can't imagine a day without it: I email, stay up to date on work, take pictures, social media, music, it is my watch, etc!
139 Oct 13, 2011 3:45 PM It would if I let it but I use a dime store cell phone. I don't like talking on the phone anyway.
140 Oct 13, 2011 3:44 PM Can check & send emails wherever I am. Don't have to be chained to my office. Incredible freedom. Plus the apps, GPS, camera!
141 Oct 13, 2011 3:41 PM Just love it.
142 Oct 13, 2011 3:40 PM music and freedom to leave the office and go almost anywhere while still being connected with clients via email...
143 Oct 13, 2011 3:37 PM The apps, the ease and I thought I had it made when I had the Blackberry
144 Oct 13, 2011 3:37 PM It's the handy dandy all in one! Does everythng but open cans and polish shoes.
145 Oct 13, 2011 3:35 PM a model for what Smart Phones can do, but have not invested in one yet.
146 Oct 13, 2011 3:32 PM Function Everywhere. Access everywhere. Camera Everywhere. I can wait to meet Siri.
147 Oct 13, 2011 3:31 PM don't have one
148 Oct 13, 2011 3:31 PM have resisted (with the help of crazy cell phone contracts)... maybe next year when I can finally dump sprint's sorry ass
149 Oct 13, 2011 3:29 PM I love it I have been using smartphones since the first Palm but never really liked until my iPHONE arrived what a JOY
150 Oct 13, 2011 3:25 PM The iPhone 4 was my first personal smart phone. I would be lost with out it....literally.
151 Oct 13, 2011 3:22 PM I won't pay that kind of monthly service charge for a phone. I use T-Mobile pay as you go plans. And pay about $200 per year for my family's two phones.
152 Oct 13, 2011 3:18 PM Still proudly sporting my "dumb" phone and frankly sick and tired of everyone being glued to their stupid phone.
153 Oct 13, 2011 3:15 PM Never interested in owning one. Hate the touchscreen, not interested in apps, and then there's the cost. (My BlackBerry was free.)
154 Oct 13, 2011 3:12 PM Ease of use, everything at one touch, cool, games, music, apps. Almost idiot proof technology.
155 Oct 13, 2011 3:11 PM Love it. Just got one 6 months ago. Emails in my hand, YouTube in my hand. A camera in my hand. And oh yeah, I can make phone calls too.
156 Oct 13, 2011 3:10 PM i don't own one
157 Oct 13, 2011 3:09 PM I don't have one but its footprint is with all mobile devices.
158 Oct 13, 2011 3:09 PM It established the smart phone market. I use an Android however without the iPhone we would still be waiting.
159 Oct 13, 2011 3:08 PM Computing in my pocket, nearly seamless access to the electronic world from wherever I am
160 Oct 13, 2011 3:07 PM I can no longer be separated from my phone for any period of time without getting nervous. I am much more connected to my friends/family. I take so many more photos.
161 Oct 13, 2011 3:06 PM I only want a phone that makes phone calls.
162 Oct 13, 2011 3:04 PM Don't have one.
163 Oct 13, 2011 3:04 PM love this phone - well computer really in the palm of my hand
164 Oct 13, 2011 3:03 PM I use it as a presentation tool and it is a gooe business product
165 Oct 13, 2011 3:02 PM Made others follow & innovate
166 Oct 13, 2011 3:02 PM It completely rocks - I hated my blackberry, couldn't review artwork and projects on road and with my iPhone I can do my job literally from my phone
167 Oct 13, 2011 3:02 PM Only thing I used to check first thing in the morning and last thing at night was my alarm clock. Now it's my iPhone.
168 Oct 13, 2011 3:00 PM Face it, the iPhone is a home office in your hand.
169 Oct 13, 2011 2:59 PM all access all the time
170 Oct 13, 2011 2:58 PM Don't have one (yet).
171 Oct 13, 2011 2:57 PM The phone is the least of its capabilities
172 Oct 13, 2011 2:57 PM I have a phone with a touch screen now. It drives me nuts. I like it, but I accidentally call people much more with the touch screen.
173 Oct 13, 2011 2:55 PM N/A
174 Oct 13, 2011 2:54 PM I was asking for a device that I could get my email and web anywhere. then came the iphone. they got me.
175 Oct 13, 2011 2:53 PM I do not own one....yet
176 Oct 13, 2011 2:52 PM at least 6 apps i use all the time
177 Oct 13, 2011 2:51 PM I don't own an iPhone.
178 Oct 13, 2011 2:51 PM When I'm travelling with my daughter, I am able to check emails and she helps us find restaurants, stores, other directions.
179 Oct 13, 2011 2:50 PM Changed the rules for how to make phones work. For years phone makers tried to approach phones in a text and menu driven way with preloaded apps that did nothing special. The iPhone created a UI that was elegant and simple. The iPhone harnessed developers to make apps that did things well.
180 Oct 13, 2011 2:50 PM It became my first screen and the center of my computing universe.
181 Oct 13, 2011 2:50 PM A computer in my palm that went every where and I uses all the time. Talking on the phone was the least of it.
182 Oct 13, 2011 2:48 PM If I could have only one Apple device, it would be iPhone.
183 Oct 13, 2011 2:48 PM a better everything in the palm of my hand
184 Oct 13, 2011 2:47 PM Can easily check email, etc. on phone.
185 Oct 13, 2011 2:46 PM I had been complaining for years about one device that would hold my calendar and my contacts. And having my music and pix in there too? Awesome. If my house was on fire, next to getting out my family I'd be grabbing my Apple stuff.
186 Oct 13, 2011 2:45 PM I waited and bought an android but love the functionality of a smart phone
