I wonder when that photo was taken. Those phones look circa 2002.


Even at a Mensa convention someone is the dumbest person in the room.

2010-2002=8.
8 years. People go through 2 or 3 phones in 8 years. That’s all I’m saying. It just struck me funny to see a photo of phones from 2002 (or whatever). You’re sorely mistaken if you think they couldn’t put together a pile like thise from old phones from 2008. Some people go through phones like I go through bedsheets. Am I rambling? Hmm… time to wrap this up.

See, you just proved my point. Phones get new tech (3G, 4G, etc.) every 2 or 3 years. Tech-heads want the newest stuff so they sell or dispose. Anyway, I have a phone that is just a phone. No camera. No hi-res. No blender. Just a phone. I’ve had it for just over 3 years. I do pay-as-you-go for $9.42 a month (tax in).

How much store credit are we talking about here? What if I had 2 old phones, could I double up the credit?

Just think if they gave ohhh, lets say a $50 credit. I could go to the local swap meet and pick up a dozen for $50, and walk out of the shop with an Iphone with a blender attachment.

Hmmm… I see your point. Make a phone call and, while you’re on hold, a strawberry smoothie.
