I think the spiff's aka commission to sales rep comes from the manufactures not from Verizon or Best Buy. If that is the case Apple can always choose to match the spiff or at least increase it enough to incentivize them enough to try a little harder. I don't think Verizon or Best Buy can do anything to get their reps to push the iPhone if the bonus money is coming from Samsung, HTC, or Motorola directly other than ban spiff's completely which I doubt they would ever do...
Fraud is a pretty strong word. If you have a family to feed and you know that by pushing Android devices hard you could gain an extra $1,000 a month what would you do? Salesman in every company push products and services they may not think is the best. This happens every day in every industry. Imagine if an insurance agent were able to sell car insurance from both State Farm and Geico. Let's say that State Farm has the best policy with higher customer satisfaction, lower...
I have never even been inside a Verizon store but listening to friends and also on forums it seems that new or upgrade customers are steered away from the iPhone by the sales reps. They do their best to push you towards an Android device I suppose because of a higher commission. Who can blame them though, they have bills to pay and why wouldn't you do your best to bring home more money for your family. Apple probably needs to do a better job to match the commission or at...
I don't think the decline is simply due to more tablet and smart phones sales. Macs and PC's sold in the last few years are simply still fast enough to do everything anyone needs. Go back a decade and your Mac or PC would simply be out of date far sooner. WIth Macs the switch to Intel made the PPC macs obsolete. But if you have a computer capable of running Mountain Lion or Windows 8 and it does so smoothly there is simply no big incentive or reason to upgrade to a newer...
Both Verizon and AT&T now have a 24 month upgrade policy. That means you won't get your subsidized price of $199 (actually $235 after activation fee) for a base model iPhone every two years. Selling a 2 year old iPhone will not give you a lot of money even if it is excellent shape due to the age. If you sell your phone prior to your 24 month upgrade date you will get a far better price but will then need to pay full price which can be around $650 or more  plus the $35...
    I was thinking the same thing. I got a Box account that gave me 50GB free. They still offer 50GB I believe but now require an business or school email address to get the 50GB. Sign up with a gmail for example and you only get 5GB free like dropbox. Don't overlook your ISP either, I use Cox Cable and get 15GB free and they have a very nice OSX and iOS app to help sync. 
Does anyone else have an issue not on iOS but on OS X 8.4 with Apple mail having problems with Yahoo mail? I am positive my password and other settings are correct. Sometimes it logs in and other times it gives me a password error message. I only use this yahoo account for ebay, and some other non-essential email but it is still annoying why the password won't stick or I get errors.
  iOS 7 will address the notification and quick settings complaint to a degree. I also understand some people simply prefer Android for the reasons you listed and others not mentioned and I don't see it ever being wiped out. But I hope you would also acknowledge that many people on Android chose their phone for nothing more than the screen size. Most iPhone and Android phone owners are very basic users that rarely make major changes. They use the stock keyboard and stock...
When Apple releases a larger display iPhone I think their share in the U.S. could easily reach 60%. Right now Android controls the low end market where there is little to no profit to be made which is not worth competing in for Apple. They also control the larger screen market since Apple doesn't even compete in that sector. I am hoping the reason for the delay is due to getting IGZO ready by ironing out any bugs and making sure it can ship in quantity. It is astounding...
I average 20Mbps and often higher and get full coverage bars wherever I go. Don't condemn and entire network because you get poor coverage where you live. And if it is that bad all you have to do is switch to someone else. No one has a gun to your head forcing you to stay. I have no idea what you mean by "slow meteor". Verizon should screen their online shills better that inevitably show up on any Sprint story.
