Need to get rid of the slogging by my friends of their expen

by madelyn2008 / July 16, 2008 9:05 PM PDT

My regards to the community, I have my close friends slogging about the cell phones (the expensive ones) that they have and I have a one that is a bit old. I don?t fancy having a new one (the cost is too high for me for now) but I do would like to know any ways by which I can make up myself?.may be mobiles at a cheaper price or ways to handle their comments?advice on anything would be appreciated.

What exactly are you asking? Your post doesn't make much sense. Which carrier are you using?

Find something they don't have ...

like the ideal boyfriend. It doesn't even have to be one giving you an expensive phone for your next birthday, just having him and bragging about it should be enough.
Remember SATC. Weren't clothes and shoes and other luxury items substitutes for the men they couldn't get?

Well....

The Samsung Blackjack 2 (normally $200) is only $50 at Wal-mart. If you have (or can save) that much, and are on AT&T, it has 3G, GPS, full QWERTY, and runs on windows mobile 6. That should stop your friends laughing. Palm Centro's are also cheap.

Best of luck.

Your idea maybe isn't bad, but we don't allow such a direct link to a shop. So I'll pass through only the idea: buy a replica phone in stead of the original one. Quality and features aren't guaranteed, but they look OK.

Searching REPLICA PHONES on google gives links to shops.
