I forgot to put in my post. I would be willing to bet if you are that good with all cells, you would be good as a sales person with one of the cell phone companies. You would have people amazed at your knowledge of them and sell a lot of contracts. All day your coworkers would even ask you questions or direct customers your way for answers. If you are looking 4 a job, there you go!

Thousands of dollars sounds like a bit much, not doubting you. Well maybe between the hard ware and early termination fees, it is more than possible. Wanting to have the latest and best isn't really crazy in my opinion. I am the same way in some aspects. It shows people that you are on the edge of the latest technology. Getting the latest gadgets probably means you are smarter than the average person. You have to be to understand everything. I don't know your financial situation, but people assume you are rich or have more money than the average joe.I like to get all the latest gadgets too. All of my friends just assume if some new must have thing is out that I own it. True 4 the most part. But as you get older, you find ways of getting the best without spending a small fortune. I'm in my real early 30's and I tell you this from my true life experience.You never really change, as far as having the best, just smarter about how to obtain them.:) MM

Hi blueclouds! Welcome to Mylot! Addiction to anything in lief is of course crazy especially when you realize it! Generally,we are addicted to some or the other thing. SOme people are crazy about clothes,some about accessories,some about chocolates ,some about electronics and so on! I'm crazy about shopping for new clothes every other week! I have some friends who are like you.They change their cellphones each time they get bored with the existing one and a new one fancies them. As long as you can afford these things its fine.But the day it eats into your earnings you need to realize ,its time to stop. Even if you do this,remember there are people not fortunate enough to even own these things for once. DO your good.You can always come forward and contribute some money out of what you plan to invest in every new phone to help the needy. That way you will feel good about yourself and your money will be used in the most ideal way. Good luck! And hey,whats the recent cell phone you bought??? :D

I am not really addicted to cell phones, as I don't replace mine that often. It would cost way to much to keep doing that. I usually replace mine once a year unless something goes wrong with the phone, then I would repalce it sooner. I just purchased a new cell phone 2 weeks ago, and I am very happy with it as it has ll the features I could ever want. It looks nice and it is 3G technology, which lets the pages load much faster, and I like that part of it as well. It has a 3.2 mp camera, which for a cell phone is really good. It has an exterior touch screen which I like even thoug I haven't figured it all out yet. The manual is like a catalog, and will take awhile to read eveything I need to know about it. I won't go into all the features, but it has a lot of them, much more than I would have ever thought would be on a cell phone. I do need a cell phone as I don't have a landline so it is my way of communicating with my family. Have a great day, and happy mylotting.
