23 here and came from a blackberry curve. i have a feeling we will be seeing a very young demographic with these phones in the coming months.

Me too.

Did anyone have their parents buy them their iPhone?

My parents almost wouldn't let me by the iPhone with MY OWN money. They said it was such a waste. But, I got it anyways, and I love it! :laugh2:
Hell, I'm 47 and my dad thought it was too much money. I think if you ask the majority of people in a survey, they would say it's too much money.:)

A few months ago I said it was too much money. But, after I bought it and tried it out I didn't care about the price. I had no problem with giving up $600 to buy it.

My point wasn't that the iPhone has a large businesss audience. My point was that businesss users who have gotten comfortable with electronics by using treos and blackberries are more likely to buy devices such as ipods and iPhones than others in the same age range.

No, it currrently doesn't support businesss email the way a blackberry does, but back when I got my first ipod, if you were a windows user you had to use some jukebox or something program because iTunes (or whatever it was called then) was only for Apple computers. Things change. Just because it doesn't support it now doesn't mean it never will.

Also, I agree with whoever said this upthread, but iPhone frankly is much easier to use all the features of then most cellphones. I could explain this phone to my 65 year old mother in about 10 minutes and she'd be good to go. I wouldn't even attempt to explain texting on a regular cellphone to her right now.
You are right, it is very simplistic and easy to explain. And I agree, it will be widely available to businesss users in no time.

Just at the moment this survey is being taken, I would advise the earlier poster to not be surprised it is showing mostly younger users, as businesss accounts aren't even active yet.

Actually, all the polls on sites like these are just for fun. There's not going to be anything you could base important decisions on. You could, and should, literally tack on the phrase "...who posts on forums like this" to any poll title. So, this poll really should be called "How old are iPhone owners who post on forums like this?"

It's like trying to average a list of averages. It doesn't work. The data is wrong. A site like this is not a random sampling. It's a subset that has it's own demographic built in. So, here you're really only looking at a demographic of this site.

So, enjoy these polls but don't bet the farm on them.

I definitely consider myself a "businesss user," but I have my cell phone plan under my own name instead of my company's. I suspect a lot of people's employers reimburse them for their cell phone bills instead of assuming responsibility for those numbers/accounts.

i don't think most businesss users are going to be wanting to replace their blackberry for an iPhone.

amirite?

I decided to post this after looking at many of the avatars throughout various threads and realizing that there are LOTS of young people with this device. While waiting in line last Friday, I was surprised at how many people were either buying iPhones for their VERY young kids or were young themselves.
My line was just the opposite. Lots of older people. When I say older I mean above 35. The oldest guy we had in our line was 75! He was number 42 or so I think.

Thanks, but read my earlier "Captain Obvious" post. Clearly, the people responding to this survey are visitors of this website. What's the point in qualifying it with a description like that? If you hand out a survey to all the people sitting in a specific room, would you need to qualify it by describing it as a survey of all the people in that room? Of course not. If a person isn't visiting this site, then clearly they aren't responding to the poll.

This is purely a way for me/us to better understand the crowd I'm now a part of on this website. I don't really have any motives beyond that, and I would certainly hope that anyone trying to do anything legitimate or marketing-related would do much better homework than this.

Unlike other items he expenses and is reimbursed, the company DOES take responsibility for his account. His bill does not come to our house, and is not connected to the rest of the family at all. They check your account when purchasing an iPhone, and his is a corporate account.

well im 15 going on 16 i do not have my iPhone yet but very soon like maybe this weekend..

my dad 43 and he can be considered a businesss user because of how he owns hes own company. he's a treo person but i know once i get the iPhone hes gonna buy it right after he plays with mine even though every since the first day it was on the news hes always been talking about how stupid its gonna be and blah blah blah i knew from the time i did my research on it that hes going to buy it and probably as soon as a couple of days after i get mine. he has an ipod that he never uses but with the iPhone its going to be different i think he will love it i know hes gonna put music on it but hes probably never gonna listen to it off the iPhone just like hes ipod.. I think he'll just have fun with the wifi and all the other cool features.
