Alrighty here guys, you've been pretty helpful before, lets see what you think of this situation.

For this Christmas, I have been given two choices by my mother.

I have to choose between getting any new phone of my choice, or getting actual presents that I list and get and such, depending on price and so on...

Well, I have no idea what to do I really need a new phone, because mine likes to turn off randomly and die really fast, and I hate my current one. So which one guys and gals? I'm stuck, so I'll take whatever majority on the poll and roll with it.

(Phone I'm considering is a Voyager, look it up if you dont know what it is)

I voted phone but then I realized you're probably from America where the phone service companies **** you over just because they can and they don't have anything better to do.

But I can't change my vote either, so...

Phone. You'll use it longer and probably more than most of the presents you'll ask for.
Phone from parents, presents from others??

I was thinking this, I mean, I'm probably gonna get an Xbox 360 from my grandparents...so I was thinking I shouldnt be a selfish twat, and just ask for the phone and **** all other presents. I'd get a 360 and a nice phone...that's good for me really.

presents for christmas
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

A phone is important, but Voyagers(from what I've heard) aren't very reliable and you'll be having a lot of trouble. If you do decide to go with a phone, I recommend LG Dare, though they'll probably cost more, but they're a lot nicer.

Depending on how much you like Christmas and how you like getting to spend it with the family, present opening and such, I'd go with the phone if its not important to you.

Really? Damn...I dont really like the way the dare looks =/, at any rate, I like the whole family bonding time, it makes me pretty happy, but I've got other presents from other people too, so I really dont know.

To the people who suggested birthday, it was six months ago, I'm presented with this oppurtunity due to the renewing of our 2 year contract.

And a phone is very important to me, only way I keep in touch with a lot of my friends

The thing is, you can pick up a basic phone for next to nothing and get the presents.

Do you need a fancy phone?

Well, I dont need a fancy one that's for sure. It's just that this is the only chance for the next two years I'll have to get a new one, and no matter what phone I get, all I get is the phone, no presents. Regardless of price.

Which is why she gave me free reign to choose whichever phone I want, regardless.

Well, get the Voyager. I mean, I know a lot of people who have it, and its really tough(I've never seen it break) but I've seen the screen flip upside down, turns off no reason(like every phone I've used), its been known to call people if its in your pocket, but I'm being nit-picky.

If it was up to me, and I was in the same situation, I would just stick it out with the phone I have now,(btw, what is it?) and just wait until I can afford the $50 for a new one in a few months, and still get to spend Christmas with the family(in a present opening sort-of-way)

There shouldn't be a set time to when you can get a new phone. I know our family has(we share 5 plans) has one or two contract renewals that we can do at anytime, but that's with Alltel.

Oh, the calling people thing? I heard about that, that's why I'm probably gonna get a case if I get the phone, and lock the screen.

My current phone is a Krazr, but it's scratched and cracked from two years of wear and tear, and it turns off randomly, even in the middle of phone calls.

The Voyager is hardcore (I'm posting from it now), but presents are cool too.

Yeah, the phone I have now, the sales person promised great outcome from it, and I've been disappointed. The best thing about it is a 3 megaPixel camera, which is basically broken now. I could be texting and it will turn off, without saving the text.

But, I would for getting presents, then get a new phone with your Christmas money.

Presents, but include a good phone.
IMO, touch screens on the Voyager, etc. are crap compared to the iPhone. My brother had a Glyde and the touch screen died within a few months.
Get a decent, cheaper phone. You don't want to accidentally break a $200 phone, now do you?
#22
I'd say presents because I only use my phone to make calls, no texting or any of that shit. If it's even moderately operational, I'd say stick with it.

No offense, but I hate bastards who think they need a $500 phone. If you can't spend some time alone without constantly texting or talking you have a serious problem. Most people whip their phones out just to look popular while carrying on meaningless conversations.

Well, I was thinking maybe iPhone...but I didnt want to cost my mom TOO much...and no, I dont want to accidentally break it...that would suck ass. I dont know, still in the thought process. I'll keep checking the thread as long as it's alive for the poll.

Oh, I know how you feel. I'm not one of those people....trust me. I liked the Voyager because of it's features, and as I'm getting texting, I find the full mini keyboards much easier to text on, and the touch screen is jsut too awesome. I'm not a pretentious twat who thinks he needs a 500 dollar phone just to have it.

I hate bastards who don't have any money, so they in turn hate people who have enough money, and friends, to afford the $500 phones, imo.

Buy a cheap phone yourself and ask for presents for Christmas. Just get the cheapest phone that isnt complete crap

Idea: if your relatives give you money, scrape it together and buy something that isn't all fancy, but works well. IT'S A PANSY PHONE ANYWAY. Come on man, do you really need the whole keyboard?
