you are another one that doesn't know what they are talking about. Rip mode?!?!? are you kidding me. where did i go into "rip mode"? i was merely stating the fact that whathisface has no businesss suggesting what other people should do with their money, when he has no idea what their financial situation is. he made an assumption which made him sound like a jerk, which he admitted he was being, and i only reiterated that. if you knew what you were talking about, you would realize that i am the original poster. how bout you re-read.
You were only stating a fact? He was only stating his opinion, you should not have had such a harsh reaction to it. He's only trying to get you to think before you so something you may regret. Also, he only "admitted" he was a jerk, (which he did not exactly do) because he is being the mature person and ending the argument before it starts. Honestly Daniel, you asked for advice on a forum. Technically, you asked for financial advice. So don't be surprised if someone has a different opinion than you. If everyone just told you what you wanted to hear, then what would be the point in even asking? Take the advice for what its worth and seriously consider if the phone is worth it to you. You admit that you may have to save up for a month just to get another $100. Are you going to have the extra $20-$40+ that this phone is going to cost you every month?
Trust me, I'm not saying that broke people shouldn't have anything nice. I had to choose between fixing my car right away and waiting for the phone, or driving around with no reverse for two weeks while i saved up another $600 for my transmission.
Guess what....let's just say I don't park anywhere I know I'm gonna have to back out of.
If you want it, get it. But if you're going to deny the advice people give you, then you obviously already have the answer in your mind.
