How long do cell phones last?

Mine died this morning. It's a Net 10 that is just over a year old. I called and the lady said "it's out of warranty, buy a new one'. I've got 500 minutes left on it. I don't want a new one. Can you buy new batteries for them or what?

cell phones last long enough to exhaust the warranty that is on them should you choose to buy it.

Then it breaks or malfunctions once the warranty expires, then you're ****ed into buying a new phone.

Sincerely with love,
Sprint

Its a racket. They make these phones as cheaply as possible so you will be forced to upgrade in a year or two.

Smart Business model.

Mine usually lasts until a baby chews on it, gets an end wet and shorts out the microphone.....or it gets too wet in my pocket working outside......or its not working right, I try to get the warranty replaced and get a "its not broken enough" so I drive over it with a truck, jump up and down on it and bring it back in a baggy....

Its never "their fault" and I always end up with a new phone paid for by me.

Cell phone insurance is a scam.

"Last" is an arbitrary term, Mr. Skip Towne. A cell phone "lasts" until you need it most. They're like women that way. One day you're happily getting calls and receiving text messages and the next day you're on the street looking for a pay phone and begging for spare change from strangers on the bus and digging through dumpsters for something to eat and living in a cardboard box because your baby done gone and left with the drifter who came by see if you had any work and was willing to sleep in the barn and made friends with your dog but he took him too.

I've never had one die on me. I think I've had perhaps six different ones over the years. I lost a couple of them, but the rest I upgraded over.

This one is a Motorola and it just went black, no backlights. I called and gave them the IMEI number and she was sure I needed a new phone without checking anything. I think they wait until the warranty expires then turn it off.

I kill one every 3 months or so. So far they've all been under warranty. I'm really hard on phones. Can't wait for Verizon to offer the ruggedized military model.
