A good friend of mine sent out an email last week saying that she would now be taking calls on her work cellphone only. Not only was it getting difficult for her to juggle two cellphones, but her seven-year-old cellphone was dead and her children had already used up all of her phone upgrades. I laughed out loud because the same is true at my house. I recently found out my boys had used up all of our upgrades when my oldest drove off with his cellphone on top of his car. The cost to replace the same phone was over a hundred dollars and I said, "no!" He's using a cheap refurbished phone until we're eligible for another decent free phone in September. I laughed a second time when another person on her mass email list said, "Welcome to the club." Her children had used up all her free upgrades too. It sounds like this is a popular club. Not only do teenagers today want the latest technology, but they wear their poor phones out by texting for hours every day.
