Well, I had a problem with my first phone. It worked just fine for a while but then it wouldn't start texting, recieving or sending, and it would start cutting out on calls. I called the company several times and they said it was nothing and whatever they were doing it worked. Well, it didn't at all so I finally caved and got a new one. There wasn't a point in fighting with the company any more it seemed.

I think I will buy a new one perhaps. Because I really have no time to waiting for repair it. The cellphone is important for my daily life, it is a tool for me to contact with my friends and families. I can't imagine the life I haven't a cellphone. It is not convinent for me. So, to buy a new one is the best way for me. Happy mylotting.

Depends, if you have been using your cell phone for over 3-4 years its probably outdated and time to buy a new one anyway. Ultimately it boils down to the repair charge. If the cost for repair is more than half the price for a new mobile phone, even if the new phone has a lot less features than your existing phone, it makes sens to buy a new one. Most technicians do not know how to do a good repair job and chances are the problem will recur in the near future.

if the cellphones are in need for a repairment, the it's no longer durable. then I think it does not worth repairing maybe it'll cost more money. nowadays cellphones are really cheap.SO I will buy a new cellphone without hesitation if my current cellphone breaks someday!

i say, if you have a budget buy a new one. broken is already broken. even if it returns back to normal, you know, been damaged is been damaged.

Hi candy. I think it's better to just buy a new one. That way, you get the chance to upgrade the model without having a slight guilt of wasting an old phone. But if the phone is less than a year old and is still under warranty, then I might consider having it repaired...then again, it would depend on what's broken. If it would take days to repair it, then just buy a new one. Thanks and Have a great day!

Hi candy! We'll I will ask first the technician how much would it cost to repair my cellphone. If the price is way too low than a new one then I'll have it fix. But if the cost on repair is just a little similar to a new one then for sure I'll buy a new one if I have enough money.
