    Thinking back to when I first got a cell many years ago I remember I would keep them for most of the contract and hated paying money for a phone. These days it seems most people replace their cells faster then most other products. So my question to you all is how long do you keep your idevices. I still have my 2ng gen iPod touch but have sold and upgraded from an original iPad to the new iPad, and I have an iPhone 4s.

    Still have my:
    Treo 300
    Treo 600
    Centro
    Storm2 ( I use this as my iPod)
    All of the above are in a drawer along with cables & chargers.

    My Handspring Visor and Prism are missing. Might be at the bottom of the drawer but too much crap to go through to look..

    Good Luck

    I keep my phones about a year... then pass them down to the kids... computers, I keep until they quit. iPads, iPods, etc, I tend to keep for quite a while... still have my 160GB iPod classic and my 3rd gen iPod touch...

    Oh heck, I've had way too many phones to have kept them. The only one I still have is my HTC EVO 4G and I'm sure I will give it away or donate it at some point in time like I've done with my other phones. *If* I purchase the iPhone 5, I will more than likely give my iPhone 4S to my son.

    I keep my devices for at least 2 years. I plan on keeping my iPhone 4s until it stops working.

    For my iPod Nano (3G) I still have with me. I gave away my 3GS when I got my iPhone 4S last year. So, for any Apple product I have (Macbook, Apple TV), I will keep it as long as it works. For my iPhones, every two years.

    With my BlackBerrys, I was changing about every two months because of warranty replacements. I couldn't wait to get rid of one model and get another because I hated the phones and the problems that came with them.

    I'll keep my 4s until it stops working. This is the first phone since my Motorola StarTac that I have been truly happy with and I have no need to upgrade.

    Still have original iPhone. it's still a piece of history.

    Had the 3GS gave it to my 21 year old nephew who must have used it as a hockey puck. When I tried to get it back when he got a 4 he said the antennae came off. HUH? WTF
