How often do you guys upgrade your cell phone/get a new one?

I've had my Pearl for a little over a year (I got it at the end of last May) but I think I want the Bold, which is being released by Rogers this week. It looks like it will be pretty expensive, plus I'll have to buy it outright since the upgrade cost will be just as much (since I just upgraded last year). lol, I'm wondering if I can justify it if I'll definitely use it for at least two years. lol. :rolleyes:

I never upgrade. my phone is working good for several years. and i don't like upgrading because i don't like extending contracts. As for getting new phone, it's rare.

Anytime my carrier comes out with a phone I like better than the one I'm currently using, lol!

My husband calls me a phone ho.

I get a new phone every 2 years. It's when my contract expires, so when I renew it I usually get the phone for free or really cheap.

I always like the phone I currently have. I only get a new one if the current one isn't working correctly. I had my last phone for 4 years before the battery life was dead. It was a better deal for me to get a new phone rather than a new battery. I like my new phone and I've had it for about 6 months already. I'm sure I'll hang on to it for at least a couple more years.
