Take a look at the Cell Phones & Plans sections on Yahoo! Answers.


When you take a look at the wide variety of questions that a ton of different people ask about their mobiles and their plans every few seconds, it really kida puts things into perspective. That’s not to make fun of anyone in the US. I’m just trying to show that there are a lot more people in the US who have absolutely NO idea what’s out there or even how to use the free phone they just picked up from AT&T. Hell, a lot of them don’t even know how to find the information they’re looking for (other than to ask it on Yahoo! Answers). It makes me wonder how many people out there without computers are struggling as much or harder.

How are companies going to reach these people? And not just the big name hardware manufacturers, what about all of the software developers both big and small who have a killer application for their phone that’s either free or well worth the money? It makes me feel like Apple has made some very huge accomplishments in reaching out to those people, and they haven’t even begun to scratch the surface.

I don’t care what you think of the iPhone; these companies need to take a page out of Apple’s books.
