I don't like to waste, so I don't change my cellphone frequently. The currect cellphone I'm using now was bought two years ago. It's a smartphone and has lots of functions. I can watch movies, read books, listen to the music... from my cellphone and I haven't got tired of it. It just works well and I don't think I have any reasons to buy a new cellphone now:)

I have a Nokia N90 for almost 2 years now... I'm thinking of buying a N95 next Christmas. The N95 is a fantastic piece of technology, despite its size. It has that GPS function and a 5 megapixel video camera, much more powerfull than my 2 megapixel one.

Frankly, I still think that digital camera can take better photos than a mobile phone.

I don't like to waste either, but my cellphone will normally went out of order in 2-3 years time cycle.. I also like to use newer phone with better feature, so instead of sending cellphone for numerous repair or maintainence, i will buy a new one.

Hello,youless,i do not like to change my cellphone unless there is some problems with it,i changed a new one more than half a year ago because the old one was broken. I think it was a waste to discard the old phone for the new one just because of the trendy outlook,for me,i use the cellphone to make phone calls,i do not use those functions in the phones,so i just need a basic one which can make phone call or sending SMS.

I don''t change my cell phone until it is spoil or lost. I don't like to change cell phone. It so troublesome. We can't satisfy ourselves since the technology make changing. As long it can call and sms i am very happy with it.

I used to change my cellphone a lot when I was a bachelor. There are times when I changed my phone even 2-3 months once too.. Those were golden days. But now, after getting married, I don't change my phone quickly. The current phone I have is with me for more than 2 years.. Its a Sony Ericcson K750. I love that phone (Not because I can't change it), because of its quality and functionality. It was really a great phone when I bought some 2 years back. I had every great functionality I could think of at that time. Even I didn't felt the need to change the phone for almost these 2 years.... Personally, I feel you don't need to change your phone , except that you are a crazy about gadgets.

i have had the same nokia 3650 for the past three years, and i'm proud to say that i've kicked the habit of needing to change my phone very often, like once a year. though i've had other phones as secondary phones (i use 2) my 3650 has always been my main phone, and has served my purpose quite well, which is for sms and calls. i may have to retire this phone soon though. great value.

What is the use of changing cellphone once a new model hits the market. Afterall they serve the same purpose. I don't really need the new functions of a new model so long as my cellphone can serve me well I'll be happy to the end.

For the last 3 years, I change cellphone on average every 9 months! I like tech gadget and cellphone was coming out with more and more advance features and more sleek designs. Unitl recently, there are no more major breakthroguh in cellphone technology, every new model that rolled out into the market are so similar to exisiting model. So nowadays, I'm not so motivated to change cellphone. but after reading and commenting on this post of yours, i think my cellphone changing itch may return soon!

Hey newer models role the market soon after the other. So customers get scribbled up. I don change my cell often. I would always prefer a MOTOROLA HANDSET,They are so sexy, hot, and stylish, and cheaper too. I do really get in touch with it!!!

I used to change my cellphone once a year earlier. Coz with electronics, newer models keep coming out which offer better benefits. But I have not changed my current p[hone in 2 years now - primarily because I dont feel like spending a lot of money in getting a new phone.
