Omg. Looks like I HAVE TO replace my phone. Who keeps their phones for a very long time? How long have you kept it?

We normally keep our phones for 2 years and replace them when our contract is up.  It's really cheaper for us that way since we then get a discount on buying new ones.

I've had this phone for about 6 years. It still works............sort of. Thing is the front screen is literally coming apart from the phone. It's not cracked just coming apart.

I had my first cell phone for so long the carrier finally sent me a letter pleading with me to upgrade to something from the 20th century.

I've had my current phone for about 5 years, and I still have no real reason to get rid of it! I think I may have to get a new phone for uni though :)

I had my last phone for about three years, the battery just wouldn't last as long as I needed it too. I just recently got a Samsung Galaxy J3 and love it has everything I use and not a whole lot that I don't and didn't cost me fifteen bars of gold!

Really? I've had this phone about 6 years. Unfortunately it is actually coming apart. The screen portion has lifted from the body and you can see inside. I'm gonna get a iphone6S Plus.

Mine always last a very long time, but I rarely use a cell phone .... Usually when I have an emergency or need to let someone know I'm running late.

Well, I usually keep my phone for an average 3 to 5 years.
However, it should be noted that I do not buy very expensive smartphones. Generally,
by this amount of time, there is something wrong with the device. It may not be
a major issue, but it is a reasonable one to get a new phone.

I've been getting a new phone every two years for the past several years. I can't see keeping one beyond that.

I change phones every 2-3 years. My husband on the other hand likes holding on to his old one. He had his flip phone up until a year ago. That was about 6 years. A year later and he is still trying to figure out his smart phone.
