    I tend to replace my phone every 3 or so year, but not always with a new model. Usually yes, but I just got myself an iPhone 5 because it was so cheap (second hand), so I'm going to use that until the SE drops in price to $300 or so region, and then go for that. I have no interest for physically large phones.

    I buy one every 4 or 5 years. It depends on how outdated mine gets.

    Once every year and a half to two years. I try not to, but after that amount of time, the battery life on the phone is very poor and I also need a change.

    Either when my old one breaks or becomes too outdated. Whichever comes first. I haven't actually had a phone for very long, but so far I've been through two different models in the past 2-3 years.

    As in phone phone, I haven't replaced mine yet. Smartphone, on the other hand? Never. My only ipod touch broke once and I didn't feel like spending a lot to replace it.

    Alas, now, I'm beginning to regret that with Pokémon Go out and whatnot.

    Not all the time because I can literally use the same phone for years, but if it breaks, then I'll go ahead and buy a new one. What phone does everyone here use right now?

    Scratch what I said. I have a phone now. I can safely say I replace mine every 12 or so years.

    Whenever I need one, I am not rich. For instance, my phone charger dock recently broke so I had to get a new phone.

    I do want to get an iPhone eventually, they are one of my favorite mobile devices.

    When it breaks or when it's driving me crazy with not functioning properly anymore. I have sometimes gotten a new phone just because it was prettier :D

    I had an 530 for a year before I get my next two 640. And so I keep it till it had it days or when I have the money to get an new phone. I used the 530 for some time till that day when I heard about the 640 and I thought to myself damn that's an good buy (sale) that I get headsets also for free and I needed an upgrade since the 530 was damn small

    It was a birthday gift, and I haven't been following the news to be honest.

    Get a new one pretty much every 2 years, when my contract runs out.
