    I think that just about covers it.

    Probably everyone here is a split between two of these. I'm Fanboy/Overuser

    you need another one the Viphoner.

    Paid for the same iphone 4 twice by switching over.
    Says using voice/data isn't a big deal, but is praying for a JB work around somehow.
    Is silently seething about the slow internet speeds on verizon.
    Is trying to figure out how much he can sell his Iphone 4 for, and upgrade in June.
    Is cursing AT&T for dropping the price of their plans to compete.

    I'm both the hacker and the overuser.

    I'm also equal part fanboy :apple: :D and equal part complainer :mad:.

    I think the chart is misleading in suggesting that the different types can't overlap with each other.

    That's a bit unfair. Have you ever tried to use the iPhone in New York, or I think any area with a very high population density.

    The two times I visited my brother in New York, the iPhone was unusable. You drop three calls for everyone you successfully make.

    Where I live, I've never had a single problem with AT&T. But anyone that lives in New York, I think would have to be nuts not to switch over to Verizon.

    Yeah think I fall into the Fanboy/Overuser category. But this is my first ever iPhone. Moved from Android. I have owned Macs for a while however.

    I'd hope that everyone would have a little fanboy in them. I wish there was a "business user" besides the deskjob (i have never had a BB).

    You forgot the aTards..

    -Adamantly believes AT&T service is awesome everywhere when in reality it's not.
    -Doesn't make phone calls.
    -Doesn't care about drop calls or voice quality.
    -Cares more about speedtest numbers than actual consistent cellular output.
    -Regurgitates the same argument about data & voice at the same time on MacRumors forums.

    No argument here. The vTards have taken it to a new level though. :D

    You forgot about the completely pointless and impractical simultaneous voice and data argument.

    Apple fanboys have reached a new low with this Network battle. V-Idiots and A-Holes, I tell ya. Lord help us if T-Mobile or Sprint gets a hold of the iPhone.

    I am an aTard only for reason #2. I could care less about phone calls. I use my iPhone as a data device.

    I'd actually be between a Overuser and Unappreciative, I guess.

    How would that not be a complainer?
    ?
    Then what's this line, or was a failed attempt at humor?

    Anyway, I wouldn't call it "pointless & impractical" but then I apparently use my phone differently.

    Agreed. The list was ok, but I expected more.

    Agreed. All of the networks have their strengths and weaknesses.
