Best answer: Go even cooler and get an old-school Nokia. Look, unless you really need a personal computer in your pocket, if all you really do is talk and text, the "latest" phone will not really change your life unless you use the computer to access the internet because it is integral to your business and the phone helps you earn money to pay the phone bill. Even more so, the "latest" phone is usually a target for getting stolen! Go backwards and search out the "un-coolest" phone you can find BUT is the cheapest to pay. I sometimes miss those tiny pink cute pocket-sized cell phones that had amazing reception on top of the mountain. One of those cute little phones makes it easy to travel on field trips as being the least likely to get taken away from by a teacher. Even better get a Motorola that is capable of having the best GPS map on it and start playing the old GPS treasure hunt game and even better have battery for phone ready when you need a phone because the battery is not spent playing games or videos all the time. But why run with the pack and be like everyone else when you can have one of those fun old phones you can decorate and not worry about getting lost or stolen? I know this is not the answer you seek, but the other answer I could give, which is to go out and earn money and buy your own iphone is probably not what you want to hear, either. I mean, there is no convincing your parents if you buy it yourself with your own money. And how do you earn money at your age? Well, there's all kinds of ideas. We just helped the church park cars at the lake for the 4th of July fireworks show, and you could have had a booth selling sodas, bottled water, and glow sticks. There's a girl, she started when she was 12 making soaps --- her aunt and uncle have a restaurant and were throwing away old cooking oil. She cleans and strains the cooking oil and then recycles it to make soaps, makes her own labels from recycled paper, then sells it at her own booth at the Farmer's Market. She is now 17 and her soaps have paid for her college education. One kid went around with his dad on their paper route and started collecting broken bicycles they found in the alley and fixed them up and sold the bikes at the flea market, today he owns 3 bike rental stands at 3 California beach piers and his own bicycle shop. Pick up wood by the side of the road, use a saw to cut it into cute animal shapes, paint the shapes and sell them as Christmas ornaments. Old fabric can be sewn into cute little animals to sell as Christmas ornaments. Get together with friends and set up a Halloween Haunted House and charge a couple dollars entrance for Halloween. Plant pumpkin seeds now and sell pumpkins for Halloween. But instead of crying about not having the newest phone, solve the problem by getting it yourself and using it for your needs. Good luck anyway.
