My best with extremely light usage, but I was also using a different launcher at the time

Older people are comfortable with what they know, and their learning curve is a bit higher than younger people.


This has been well documented. Chances are, if you use the X2 for email and occasional web browsing, it'll be fine.



 Who are these old people you speak of? Cool

Older people generally like the iPhone, like my mom, because even though Apple updates the software, not much changes visually or functionally; it's very uniform across Apple's mobile products. I didn't say old. Some younger kids would probably consider me 'old.'



ICS introduces big changes, and some people don't want to relearn how to use their phone after spending so much time figuring things out.

Baloney on the "old people" meme...I just saw an 86 yr old woman doing gymnastics last night on Colbert!  Granted, I am nowhere near her age, but my husband and myself are pretty saavy about Android phones! Smiley Wink 


 


So, let's stop with the iphone comfort zone...I detest Apple products...even at my age! Smiley Wink

Amen.  A fact of life is my eyesight deteriorates as I get older so larger screens are appreciated.  The tiny iPhone screen no matter how sharp is still tiny.  But I'm lucky since I'm very nearsighted, I just flip up my glasses and I can read 4 pt type with ease.  My wife on the other hand,  hmmm lets not go there.  Suffice it to say she loves her Razr Maxx and her MacBook Pro.

Until you work in a Verizon Wireless store (or other carriers) ...


Not everyone gets it, which is why Verizon also wants to charge us a new $30 upgrade fee.  Yay. =|

I just saw that Jason...signing a two year contract is not enough for them. Now they want to charge for the privilege of upgrading their products. It's outrageous.

 This reminds me of when banks claimed that ATM's were going to save us money by reducing human contact (and thereby labor costs).


Shortly there after we told that an ATM convenience fee was coming.


VZ employees are notoriously ill-informed and lazy. The upgrade process is only made worse by inept in-store employees.


The $30 fee is effectively a retroactive reduction of the upgrade benefit already earned by and promised to consumers.Frown


Reduce the financial incentive to commit to another contract and customers will start to shop around more...
