How will your primarily refer to the iPhone 4 from now on?

    I need to know what to get accustomed to/start using myself. I think it's safe to assume the majority will either use "iPhone 4", it's official name, or "i4", the main nickname we've been seeing around.

    (If there is something else you prefer, post it.)

    I like this one too. When I read it in my head I say "iPhone 4". Whenever I read i4 it's more of an "eye four" type deal. Plus, i4 reminds me of some old Mac or an Intel processor like below.

    iP4

    i4 sounds too much like an intel processor

    I'll probably keep calling it the iPhone 4. You missed one on the Don't list: iPhone 4G.

    I'll continue to refer to it as iPhone 4. i4 refers to an internal project I was one upon a time involved in.

    It needs to be iP4 as not to be confused with Core i3, i5, i7, i9 etc.

    Why not just iPhone 4? Simple enough to me. Stop confusing everyone.

    gawd, I don't really care, but whatever you do, just don't call it ipv4!

    but iPhone 4 works just fine for me.

    This. People refer to the iPhone 3GS as just 3GS, why can't we refer to this as the 4? What other "4" is there that people might confuse this with?

    works for me: iPhone4 or iP4

    also will do: iPhone 4th gen (generation)

    definitely not: iPhone "4G"

    The reason we don't want to call it 4G or iPhone 4G is because it's not truly a 4G phone, it still uses the 3G cellular network, not 4G, so calling it 4G just isn't right!!

    the i4 is a defunct Intel chip that won't be making into the 13in mac laptop models.

    Sure. Why not? Like I care.

    With the reception issues, taking out the "Phone" part in iPhone 4 makes perfect sense right now.

    I voted iPhone 4. Gotta love the auto correct that capitalizes the "P" for you. But I would have voted for "iP4" if it was an option.
