    Aren’t this smart phones similar to the latest Mercedes in vehicles? Why would people keep upgrading their cell phones every time a new model comes out? victims of marketing? Then those who cannot afford them turn around and do illegal and immoral things to get or keep them?

    When will people learn?

    on a real how can they sell phones without the service to support it and how anyone buy the damn phone without getting the supported service. they should invest in nokia phones because those new Nokia lumia 920 are the best phones ever. don’t introduce no android phones in dominica beause all google does is invade peoples privacy and sell your information online
