I am not really up to date on phones.. I text and call but I don't get the internet or get GPS or stuff like that because I don't need it, and it costs too much.
I love my triband Nokia cell 6170 which I purchased in 2005 for $350. It's just as functional as those latest phone craze & had no problem with it since my purchase. It's no longer available in stores or online. I use it anywhere overseas with no contracts or additional fees to pay. Having one of those latest phones doesn't determine the owner's salary or age. I know some people who spend their minimal salaries just for phones to show off. Having new models or styles of phones does not make one look rich or earning big bucks.
I'm a tech-head. So much so, my toilet will massage you and you don't need toilet paper, when you walk away, it flushes itself. (no lie) I built my latest gaming computer and it's second to none. It barely idles playing the newest Call of Duty games.But I draw the line on cell phones. I had my first one in 1988 and it was as big as a suit case. It had a function then and a cell phone still has a funtion for me now. In fact, the same function. Today's phones are merely a fashion statement. What do they really say?All a smart phone says about you is you are all about compromise. Especially a soft touch. This says you have a computer in your pocket, but not a very good one. It says you text, but if it wasn't for the smart word function, half of your keypresses would do nothing. It says you can get directions to get pizza at the same place you go all the time. It says you play worthless games when you should be doing something productive. It says you're easily distracted by all the apps you certainly must have. It says you have a cell phone, although it may take many keypresses to get it to act like one. It says you don't mind all your face grease all over the screen all the time. And finally, it makes a statement, a statement that says you are extremely self important. So self important that you have to have your face staring at this thing all day long because SO many people have to keep in touch with you; forget the fact that it doesn't do anything very well at all. You are of the type from history that used to carry a fake pager because it made you look important. Now really, what kind of statement is that to tell the world?
For sure the younger people want everything that is new, etc. etc. I've always felt that cell phones were for necessity calls. What's the diff between calling or texting? I agree it's to make more money and all of us are falling for it.
don't want a phone.Just a way the government can keep track of you.
Clearly the person who wrote this and the people that conducted this stupid survey didn't take into account people financial situation. Just turned 30 and I have a small flip phone. If I had a job then yes I would have something better but since I can't afford one I get what I can afford. A prepaid phone that I only have to shell out 20 bucks every 3 months. People are way too materialistic now a days.
Is this a ploy by phone manufacturers to get us to upgrade our phones so they make more money? If it ain't broke, don't fix it...
What a crock o crap! D umb@ss iPhone is pointless. I make a lot of money, travel and nothing has changed that since before I even carried this social monkey in my purse. When I see all the unfortunate and regrettable blap people say on Twitter, Facebook etc I revel in the fact my nitTwit account went dormant 2 years ago and Id never have a NoticeMyFacePlease page. I pity those whose feel the need to hustle praise and attention from strangers. Face it, theres celebrity then theres the rest of us to pity celebrity and those who desperately try to mimic it.
Here's some real career advice for faking out the snobs. Get a post office box in the RICHEST suburb close to your home. Put that P.O. Box address on your resumes, and don't use it for anything else. The cell phone is nonsense, you're not supposed to answer it during an interview anyway, so who is going to see it?
