    Someone in another thread indicated he thought more than half of the TMC users probably had an iPhone. I wondered if that were the case.

    2. Yes I have an Android phone

    3. Yes I have a Windows phone

    4. Yes I have an "Other" smartphone

    Wait, are you ALLOWED​ to buy a Tesla if you don't have a smartphone?

    Well, I had a very basic dumb phone, and the iPad was my link to the LEAF. But, after the Tesla arrived, I had to join the 21st century - Android.

    I'm not much further ahead of you. I still have the first brick cellphone, the first smartphone with internet that was a brick, and the first cellphone that had 3G/camera/video/internet/gps (never turned GPS on). The new phones seem so delicate and snoopy. I try to by things that will stand the test of time. I think the Model S fits that category too.

    I'm curious to see where this will end up. While I don't think 50% of Tesla owners have iPhones, I bet it is a higher percentage than the 12.9% Marketshare that iOS phones currently command.

    I voted "Yes. I have a windows phone". However, I don't have a subscription service so I can't make phone calls... I use it with wi-fi just to access the Tesla app. Yeah, I'm a cheapskate and hate monthly bills... just use a $100/year cheap Go phone for occasional calls while on the road.

    I'm a bit of a smartphone junkie.

    I have had every iPhone up to the 4S then switched to android. Since then I have had the Galaxy S3, S4, HTC One, Moto X, and Nexus 5 (current phone)

    This is an entirely appropriate thread for Discoducky to once again make fun of Rolosrevenge for his old flip phone. ;)

    Bought my iPhone on the way back from picking up my car.

    As often as I use it as an actual phone, the $50/mo charge calculates out to about $100/min.

    If it's of interest, I'm constantly surprised by the demographic information I get on my website, which obviously only caters to Model S owners.

    In terms of browser:

    Safari - 40%
    Chrome - 28%
    Firefox - 13%
    IE - 10%

    In terms of device:

    PC/Laptop - 65%
    Tablet - 23%
    Mobile - 11%

    Breaking down the devices for tablet and mobile:

    iPad - 63%
    iPhone - 25%
    Nexus 7 - 1%

    So it's very clear that we have a strong slant towards Apple users in general, and from a mobile point of view, the vast majority are iOS, at least based on my experience.

    Android smart phone, but I use a pay-as-you-go plan (T-Mobile). I spend roughly $100/year on calls. I have to buy the phone full price.

    Pick your favorite. You must choose! ;-) You can't possibly love both children, I mean, both phones equally.

    Welcome to the Dark Side, my son.

    (J/K, I love my iPhone and want to marry it. And my iPad and iPod and iMac. Lordy I own a lot of iStuff.)

    Well if it were a Nokia... I'd understand.

    Speaking of which... time to get back to writing that Nokia mobile Tesla app...
