I have had the same cell phone since early 2005 and don't see myself changing it any time soon. It does exactly what I need it to, it makes calls and will allow me to text if I am forced too (I don't like texting and I don't get any of them for free, they cost me $0.15 per text message, incoming or outgoing). It doesn't have a camera, which is fine because I have a real cameral and Cell phones take lousy pictures.

Well my friend,,,its not the matter of crisis.Even during crisis,,some have managed to go on and if you are one of these,,you can still buy an expensive phone if you can afford.While there are many who cant afford an expensive mobile even without crisis. So to buy an expensive phone,,u just should be capable of buying it.But ya you should be a little careful during this crisis period in spending money..!!

I prefer phones that are reliable and simple. So that means the not so expensive ones. I have my phone mainly for staying connected with friends and family. I don't think I need those fancy ones.

hi there chrystal.. how are you? for me, at this moment of my life, i prefer to have unexpensive mobile phone coz it's so crisis.. it's just i'm contented with my N1100.. that i can text and call anytime.. honestly, i'm dreaming of expensive phones if i have extra money for that.. we need to be practical this time of crisis.. yes, i do agree with you that we have to use our money for other important things, like healthy foods, education and other important things..nice discussion.. happy mylotting

For me, I'd much rather have just a regular old cel phone. The one I have now is an LG, and it's simplistic...meaning there's no games, internet, or emailing pictures. I figure I don't need all those bells and whistles. I'm very happy with the one I've got, I can get texts, voice-mails, and of course regular phoning. I also have the GPS on it. One of my daughters has had some of those more expensive phones, and while she's on her 3rd one, I still am using my one I got a couple years back. (If it ain't broke...why fix it?! Lol)
