Forget excessive - why do you waste so much money?

Then why are you asking if it is excessive? If you are making money, why not do more and make more money? Sounds like a pretty cool little bit of profit you got going there for hardly anything but some fun. Talk about the perfect job!

It definitely is excessive of you to change 10 phones in a year....I can only imagine the amount of money you spent each time...

If you have such a love of switching phones, at least get them for free. PM me for where you can do just that and even earn money giving them away to others. There are many phone models and carriers available. Annie

Sounds a bit excessive, but hey.. if you can afford it and you like to try new gadgets I guess its pretty fine. Try to break your record this year LOL.

Definitely, why are you switching? Is it because they are breaking/mishandled or are they stolen or are you just upgrading a lot. I can easily go through a single phone for a year or more.

Wow. I would say it is excessive. You must be on a first name basis with the folks at your carrier by now, what with how often you need to activate new phones. Wow. I couldn't even imagine that, I only get a new phone when I finally manage to break mine. Which I'm doing much better at now that I hardly ever touch it. :) Although, I agree with you about eBay, it is a great place to buy a phone on the cheap. Yea market saturation!

If you're making money out of it....then there's no reason to stop, is there?

Perhaps not as excessive as it is a waste of your money. Find a consistently good one and stick with it for a year. It's a lot less out of your pocket, and you can always wait to find something better.

that is definitely too excessive.i do not understand why you must change so many phones in just a year.i do not see any benefits of it.i can only see that is such a waste of money.when i was still in secondary school i like to change phones as well. but i only changed twice in a year.but later on i am no longer interested in that kind of habits anymore.as you grew older you will become more matured.so i realized it is just wasting money.well i am just a student. i do not waste my parent's money on that kind of things.i know how hard it is to earn money.so i do not waste it just like that.why do not you straight buy one good phone which have everything and stick to it??the phone i am using now is already 5 years old. eventhough my phone started to have problem but i still didn't buy a new one.i am still saving money.because once i buy i will make sure it has everything i need.like that i do not have to waste money and buy a new one again.i think you should really try changing your habit

whether or not you are excessive depends on a few things 1- if you have a lot of money but even then, i could think of better things to spend my money on 2- why you are changing phones if on a whim, see above if you keep losing them, you have a bigger problem......
