∞ 34% of iPhone users think they already have 4G

Either people don’t listen to what features they’re getting on their phones or they believe what they want. Regardless, some answers from a new study are surprising.

[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]The survey, done by consumer electronics review and shopping site Retrevo, shows that 34 percent of iPhone owners mistakenly think they already have 4G. That’s kind of scary — I wonder what will happen when they realize they only have 3G.

Keeping in mind that so many people think they already have 4G, I guess it shouldn’t be too surprising that 22 percent of the people surveyed don’t think 4G performance is worth the cost. When asked if the 4G data plan costs too much, 30 percent said it did.

On the good news side of the survey, 40 percent of people say they’ll buy the next iPhone, even if it doesn’t have 4G.

Retrevo said the survey was conducted for them by an independent panel in June 2011. The sample size was over 1,000 distributed across gender, age, income and location in the United States.
