    People who upgrade every time a new phone gets released

    How can they afford to do that? Its like $700-800 per upgrade after the cheap 2 yr one. It just boggles my mind that people can afford to keep upgrading every few months just for a small advance over the phone they currently have. I can't believe how often companies like Samsung and Motorola release new phones. You get a nice Galaxy s3 and your cool for a few months, but then its all about the galaxy note 2 and so on and so fourth.

    Hello and welcome to the DROID forums..

    Some of us do it just because we can... its no different than making modifications to your car or truck, which I also do... lol.

    As far as the cost... everybody should do as they can afford some people don't pay full retail, they buy off of swappa, Craigslist, eBay... lots of places...


    The reason we do it... we're tech junkies, we want the latest greatest... it's an obsession lol

    Personally, it's my drug of choice, and lots cheaper than the other drugs. Relatively a cheap attitude adjustment for me.

    Also remember that plenty people sell their current phones as the market is good for phones on no contract.. In the case of VZW if I buy at subsidize price its more of a cost over the year with losing unlimited data..

    My tech addiction is so bad.....I switched to a family plan last year just to have upgrades available about every year and to have more than one phone for my use... Kids mother is helping pay for 1 line....I have a 3 line family plan now.

    Its good tho, I can test phones exactly side by side, I can weigh in on the phone vs phone debates with real hands on experience...

    Even still...I kept my Droid X1 for 1 year and 4 months, and my RAZR from last year for 11 months.

    I had 3 lines, now 1, I also had every inclination to sell my old phones but I have a shoe box (now 2) of old phones, usually wind up keeping them. I had upgrades every 365 days so I got a new phone every 4 months. Now I just bought a maxx off of CL and sold my RAZR to a friend. The day the RAZR maxx HD came out I got "gifted" with 6 bills, omen. But I resisted waiting for the HTC dlx.
    I miss getting them just to play with them and pick the one I like best and leave the others in the sock drawer.
