    Re: People who upgrade every time a new phone gets released

    I was bent on getting a Razr Maxx, but since Verizon got rid of the unlimited data, I decided to get a new battery and stick with my Droid X for the foreseeable future.

    My Nexus 7 tablet cost $249: reasonable, IMO, for state-of-the-art hardware (quad core tegra 3) and software (Android JB 4.1.2).
    There's no real reason why adding a cell antenna in a device should increase its price by $500. My phone has become a phone again; any serious Android work is delegated to my tablet.

    I still have my x as a backup that was the first phone I "fell in love with" in a long time.

    Or some people like myself find someone to swap there phones. Some people after the 14 day return period don't like there current phone and want to trade it. I got lucky with my Rezound. I actually found someone on craigslist to swap my Rezound for three gs3. And I am loving this phone.

    $600 isn't a lot of money each year. Going to a football game is $150 in food and drinks so its all relative for me.

    The reason we do it... we're tech junkies, we want the latest greatest... it's an obsession lol
    Yeah, I sort of understand. I wish I could get the newest & greatest but I just simply cannot afford it.

    I don't buy a new one every few months, but when I do buy one I do research for months to make sure it's a phone that I really want. If there are rumors of a new device coming out in 1-2 months that looks to be incredibly amazing, I'll wait. Nothing's worse than walking in to a Verizon store blindly, buy a phone, then go home to find out that either it has very little dev support, or the next generation is coming out a month later. Doing my research I've been able to live with a phone for almost 2 years.

    If you have four lines you could theoretically upgrade twice a year for about $200 each time. Also some people are business owners with even more lines and some have a lot of disposable income.

    We have a upgrade on our line every year. I have never paid full retail for a phone. I've had the Droid 1,X,Bionic and now the Maxx HD. I might need to branch out but overall I love my Moto phones. I have always had one for at least the past 10 years. They were the Nextel phones that I started with.

    I have 3 lines- mine, my Mom's and my 30 yr. old stepson. Mom doesn't EVER want a new phone! Stepson can buy his own phone and I get a new phone about as often as I want! Bought the GS3; hated it but it went past my 14 days. So, I sold it on Ebay for 2x what I paid for it. Got the Razr Maxx HD and I am a happy camper...for awhile.
    Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD and Jawbone Era...don't get any better!
