Has celphone became a status symbol?

maybe during the previous years cellphone has really become a status symbol but i don't think it is a status symbol any longer. cellphone today is a necessity, most of us need it in order to communicate in our day to day living. the demand for cellphone is very high. the only reason that makes it a status symbol nowadays is the people buying the latest and expensive brands and showing it off to the crowd.

i guess having the latest cp model should not be a status symbol or indication of status of any particular person... in fact we cannot know...a very rich person probably is still using a common cellphone model...wyl an average person may have the most advance model of cp... yet he/she haven't paid it yet or tru debt...so i will leave by saying " dont judge a book by its (cellphone) cover" ^_^

Maybe about 5 years ago but now it's no longer a status symbol. I am a very old model and those people working under me have celphones way more hi-tech and expensive compared to mine but my salary is 3 times compared to their salary. They don't make a joke about my celphone but I guess they want to tell me to get a new model. My celphone is already 4 years old. LOL!
