Scroll through any tech blog and it won't take you long to find an article disparaging AT&T's troubled wireless network. Slow speeds and huge dropped call rates in many major cities have given the carrier a bad reputation. And yet, despite all their flaws, iPhone owners seem to love it. CNN Money reports that 73% of iPhone users are "very satisfied" with their phone.
AT&T's total satisfaction rate is 68%, just a hair under the smartphoneuser average carrier satisfaction rate of 69%. These numbers make a solid case for the idea that the satisfaction (and love) people feel for their iPhone makes them more likely to attribute positive qualities to AT&T. 77% of iPhone owners plan on buying another someday, as opposed to only 20% of Android customers.
Obviously, those numbers do not tell the whole story. Android is still very new and the high satisfaction rates of phones like the Incredible and Nexus One are watered down with disappointment over aging gadgets like the G1. Still, Apple has a commanding lead in the consumer loyalty field that is unlikely to die anytime soon.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
