It is FINALLY warm by me Laughing

1. Do you have allergies to pollen? What are your symptoms?

2. Did you do anything fun for Mother's Day?

3. When it is humid, does your hair go straight or frizz up?

I guess, so instead of getting them a replacement phone, buy them a really old one instead?

Who buys two year old phones?

Ask anyone who buys off of ebay. I just sold my Iphone 4S recently. The phone came out in 2011.

So instead of seeing them in concert again, you bought an ipod?  

Ummm...no. I saw them in concert after I bought the ipod. I have ony had one opportunity (actually two when I was 17 years old to go across the country but my gf's mom told her no as they had other plans at that time) to see them in concert for many different reasons.

Yes you want the latest phone.  

Sometimes, but not always.

Yea, but if the phone is two years old, wouldn't the kid be eligible for a contract?

Yes my younger dd has never gone a full 2 years on one phone.  She's a massive texter.  Plus she had a couple Pantech models and I don't think they held up as well as other phones we've had.  Our older phones have been saved and we have used a couple.  We've also found AT&T will give you a new phone at 18 months if you sign a new contract then.

Why would you choose to be locked into a contract for 2 years instead of operating without one?  Services (ime) don't change when you don't have a contract.

Kids who break or lose their phones within a few months of being eligible for an upgrade?  This is why I save old phones, so if the kids lose/break, we have one they can use until the next upgrade period.
