New phone

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im 16, i have my own job and want to buy a phone for myself. I want to buy an iphone 7 or up and my mom told me if i give her the money every month then i can do it so she can pay for it on the plan but once i brung it back up she told me if i want it every cent i make needs to go into the phone and she doesnt want to pay the 2 year plan (monthly). I tried to reason with her and tell her half which is $200 a month which will go into it but she still doesnt want to do it. Even though she told me once i got a job and can pay for it myself she would buy me the phone and i'd give her the money monthly, when i got the job and wanted it she told me no. Can someone explain?

Just buy a used google pixel XL first gen 128GB phone for $200-250


Can find them on ebay, just find a seller who offers quality options and pick Good/Excellent quality.


Or a galaxy S8 might be around that price as well, and that has a snapdragon 835 if I'm not mistaken.

Just out of curiousity, why are you after an iPhone?


It depends on your own financial situation, because getting a job is nice and puts you in a good place in terms of income, but depending on the price of an iPhone 7, your mom may highly be against the price no matter what.

I would advise against an iPhone 7, they’re too old now. 


You want the newest phone you can afford, so maybe get a newer android, or spend a bit more and get an iPhone 8 or ideally a XR
