Like I said, if you think so or not. When you're worried about the status symbol of a phone there is something missing. Good luck figuring that out.

I will highly consider the low cost iPhone if it's better spec wise than a 4s

I said it was losing its prestige, not losing the fact that people like me need an iphone to have status. That's the very reason why I hate the fact of so many people buying, believing that it will make them cool or add status to they're lives by owning an iphone. Your insinuations are that I need an iphone for status? Pretty lame considering you know nothing about me, and the fact that you keep wishing me good luck with finding out is ever more ridiculous and foolish speaking.

So in your theory it's about people buying stuff because they need the status, and I would assume you also think everyone who buys a Mercedes S class is because its just a status thing and that they should be buying a Ford Focus instead because they both have 4 wheels and get you from point A to B?

You my friend are The one who needs some well wishing ; ) I'm good...

IF you say a phone has lost it's prestige you've already proven my point.... it's a phone not a "prestigious" item.

I'll let your quote speak for itself. Have a good one.
