I also got my first phone at 18
And had nothing in highschool because no job and my parents wouldnt buy me one.
But mine was a 4s, I feel like a dinosaur now.





4s isn't bad, I know a lot of people who have one lol I had an iPod touch 3rd generation, and then after the millionth time I dropped it, the screen finally cracked really bad and then it stopped charging like it was supposed to So then I waited 6 months until the 5th gen came out, liked the fact that there were finally colors, so when I got a job (and now I don't have a job because I quit it... it was bad), I finally got a real phone-- and went 5c just because colors xD I have a cheap plan and unlimited everything, but now I had to switch to my parents paying my bill just last month since I have no job

Same thing here, I kinda feel bad to make my parent pay for my phone when I dont have a job because im studying right now. and since I live in a place where jobs are rare, I just cant get one, they want full time people when I cant...
And my contract is so expensive. omg, I regret it xD
Im really careful with the things I own, so my iphone looks top notch ! :3

Out of curiosity, what was your ex-job? o:

Nope! I only get a new phone when I absolutely have to AND I have an old fashioned flip phone because I refuse to get a smartphone! Why? I just want to be able to call for help when I need it! That's it. I only pay $10 per year! You read right--PER YEAR! About the only time I have EVER been thankful I had a cell phone was when I got a flat tire when driving home from work and had to call for help to get the tire issue taken care of.

Well my 3rd gen breaking was such a fluke thing, it didn't have scratch on it and one day it just shattered. The weird thing was, the same thing happened to my mom's phone the same day, but hers was a prepaid flip phone xD And yeah I feel bad too, the problem with me trying to find a part time job is that I can only work weekends (and people want all week) since I have a job on my college campus I have to do to help pay for tuition--- which I wish was my real job since it's working in a bakery lol But my old job was retail. I should've listened to people when they said it was bad I'm trying to get a job at a drug store or this local ice cream shop... hope it's ice cream xD

I try for every two years but sadly my phones never seem to last that long. I am expecting my current one to fail me in about 6 months.

I change it when it breaks or becomes somehow unusable. The one I have now is already good enough and has everything I need.

pretty how I feel. it was convenient when the iPhone 5C came out because that was when I needed a new phone. I bought it for $99 at at&t when they had their special.

I still have it, although it has a small crack and the screen pops out a bit when I drop it, but I just pop it back in :3 not really sure what kind of phone I'll get in September since that's when my contract is up and time for a new upgrade :3

I had the same phone for almost 3 years now. I'll probably upgrade towards the end of the year.

Upgrading my phone is like my number one to do if I'm gonna spend extra money on something. You have it with you and use it everyday, right? I think it's okay to invest in it a little.
