Both my boyfriend and I have iphones and we have been in a monogamous relationship for 3.5 years now. Neither of us comes close to the estimated partner number for iphone users. It's an interesting theory though.
Pfft. Any "study" which uses self reporting isn't worth it's salt. What people Do and what they SAY they Do are often two completely different things.
I wonder who payed for the "study" it can really influence the outcome a lot.
I have a Motorola.....something . A Crush, I think. It isn't a "Smart Phone" just a dumb one. But, it has a pedometer on it, so I can see how many steps I took each day. Now, that's something everyone needs in a phone (heavy sarcasm.)
Well, according to a study of almost 10,000 people on OKCupid it can. So how many of you use iPhones?
well I don't have an iphone but I have a verizon 2 year contract and can't wait for it to end in 6 monthes I'm tired of paying for it I will get one of those cheap phones I can just buy like 20 minutes a month so its for emergencies or call my bank up and ask my balance or a couple quick texts to my boyfriend like are you coming over today. I won't give anyone my number either except my mom dad and boyfriend. I really don't use my phone or need it much. I'd rather save money than keep spending $70 a month cuz the dumb phone I bought off ebay to replace my lost phoen required a data plan of $30 to keep it going every month. heck maybe not even buy 20 minutes every month and use it less
Well, I'd love to get an IPhone, but are too poor for one! lol, but according to that site it would be wrong for both of me and my hubby! He has had several sexual partners and he's a Blackberry guy, and I want an IPhone and I've only had 5 sexual partners, so the study is wrong in our case!
Didn't fit for me, I have an android but it didn't work out for my number. It did however estimate my husband's pretty close...but of course that all happened before he got an android so I call hooey on all that!
The OkCupid studies are definitely interesting. I've read more than one of them. But this is one I don't fit. I have a blackberry and have had only 1 sexual partner so far. But it does make it sound like the iPhone is the ticket to sexual excitement.
I didn't see whether these numbers were statistically significant or not. In research, real research, "the most" doesn't always mean causation. Did they do P Ratios? My guess would be no. Just plain counting, which doesn't prove a thing. P Ratios show how much of the numbers are due to chance and the lower the P Ratio, the less likely the results are due to chance.
I think the results are simply due to either coincidence or like Chili said, Apple paid for the study to further "cool up" their exorbitantly expensive phones. What about people who just have phones?
My Man works for a big electronics firm and we "have to" have the phones associated with his company. They don't give them to us, we don't get a discount, no coupon, the employees and his or her families are just "supposed to" use the phones this company makes. Silly. The thing is, this restriction isn't legal, and they were challenged for it, so now they simply say "we prefer you use our phones." My phone has an iPhone like style, but has a heat sensitive touch screen. So, when my face touches it, while I am talking, I often hang up on people, hit Mute by accident, or start doing math problems on the calculator with my eyebrows. *pffffftt* It's too easy to get on the internet by accident, and I really don't want to pay for the internet on my phone. It isn't that important for me to do Facebook updates from the grocery store...."I'm looking at cereal. Damn, cereal is expensive. Where did they put the soy milk, now?" Scintillating.
