I wonder if when people move to 2 year or 3 year cycles with phones
Wait, what? People change phone more often than once per two years. Most people I know, keep them for about two years or longer.
I basically live on the hand-me-down phones from my wife. Why? Because she gets the "everything included" plan which comes with an iPhone (and when we renew each two year, we get a new iPhone). She gets the "everything included" plan because that way she doesn't have to think about anything when using it (Am I on wireless? How much volume do I still have this month? Roaming? Those kind of questions that are hard for non-tech users).
When she gets a new phone, I get her two year old phone and continue to use that on my cheap-ass-phoneless-plan. At this point, I am using a iPhone 5 (just the number) and it works fine. I'm even pondering continuing on using it until Apple stops support, because I'm not keen on getting the bigger iPhone 6 (just the number) my wife currently uses. Refresh is in March next year.
Phones already have a long longevity... I do admit, I went to Mr Minit to get a new battery for the iPhone 5. Cost me something like 50€ and that was worth it.
any external calls weren't coming in. sound like they're starting to get it moving again.
The booklet had a spiral which took some time to figure out. Basically, 2 pieces in the middle, and 1 on each side of it, which makes it look really cool, and more importantly, supports the turned pieces. They do a slow turn though.
