    11 months. I do the AT&T Next program and every 12 months I turn my iPhone in and get a new one if I want. I'm going to get the 11 next week and it will drop my monthly payment down $7 from my current iPhone X.

    when I was working
    had five different...

    left two on the top of the cab of my Tacoma ,
    the rest:
    A. I was so wrapped in what ever project I was on
    and
    forgot the monthlywatch

    B. Either didn't charge them
    or
    didn't turn them on
    or
    was out of range...

    when the day came I became permanently FIRED
    never gave a phone a thought...

    No phone
    no watch

    Would you believe my phone is a flip. It's at least 7 years old and it doesn't even have a data plan. :)

    I've never owned a mobile phone, I do have a watch but you have to wind it and it sits in my pocket dangling on a chain
    I was just thinking today how if you broke down on the highway you used to have to walk to the nearest gas station and try to conjure up some kind of help

    Dont have a mobile phone its bliss, I have email and that's it no face book, no insta no snap chat. I still live in a world where if I say to meet some one at a certain day or time that's it. And any one who knows me knows that's how I roll. I had one briefly but hated being at every ones Beck and call.

    iPhone 10... had it ~18 months. I don't rush out to buy new models, but once a phone craps out I like to buy the most recent model so it lasts longer.

    I have a cupboard full of burner phones, use once and throw away, keep it to 30 seconds or less. They'll never find me.....

    Samsung S8, mfg. date: 2017. We're totally cellular. After going thru parental dementia, etc., the phone became an essential link. Never more than a few feet away and I feel uncomfortable if I walk away without it.

    If I had a mobile phone, I wouldn't now what to do with it. Too old to understand those things.

    I left my carrier of 14 years cuz I was trying to upgrade my phone and the salesman was a complete ah***. I went with a new very progressive carrier with an IPhone 8...it's a must have for taking work pics.

    I have 2 droids.
    I swap them out every 2 years. I had an iPhone a few years back and didn't like it.

    The voice command on Apple car play works a little better than Android Auto.
