    You want people to donate so you can get a phone? This is kinda sad. Get a job and stop being lazy. Sorry if its harsh but people aren't going to help you if you are being lazy like that.

    Babysit, mow grass, paint mailboxes, wash cars, tudor...you can easily get the money if you put a little work into it.

    Donate money so you can get a Droid? This can't be serious, can it? Haha

    I got mine for free from vzw. All you have to do is bitch to them that your current phone is not working correctly and you want to try out an X to see if you have better signal. It really works great if you have a different brand phone now. That way you can tell them that your buddies moto x works in your house and your blah blah blah phone doesnt. I got a free droid, then incredible and now X this way. I literally have not paid a dime out. Not to mention, they also do it even though I was no where near upgrade. And Im going to do it again when the next one comes out.

    Not sure how old you are, but grocery stores typically hire young kids to bag groceries. Try to do something like that if it's feasible.

    And what's wrong with Publix? You thinking you are going to work in healthcare right off? Get baggin and after 1-2 days you will have enough money...Then quit if you want.

    I've already looked at all local Publixs and non have openings, considering its summer i'm pretty sure there is many more kids looking for a job there as well.

    You could always sell stuff on Craigslist. That always works for me.

    I'm actually selling stuff on eBay as i type this. With Craigslist do you have to meet in person?

    yes you have to meet in person for craiglist

    Yeah, you never want to deal with shipping stuff through craigslist. Shady stuff can go on if you do.

    I always meet at a "halfway" meeting spot and meet somewhere public. I've done many alone, but had a few friends go along for different ones. Never meet at someones house.

    Ya i'd rather not use craigslist eBay seems like a better idea for me. Thanks for the idea though i appreciate the help.

    A Learn C on the Mac when i was trying to learn how to develop iPhone apps and a Blackberry storm case, since thats my phone now and its horrid. Thanks =) for the good luck.

    I'd rather not give out my information.

    I also have some yardwork. I got all the tools. Where you at???

    Kids today...damn...I would NEVER ask for anything like this in a million years.

    Go door to door and ask people if they need yardwork done or any help with anything. Or else check craiglist. There's a "labor" section that you can help with small things around the house for people or else help people move.

    Don't be part of the problem with society...be a part of the solution and go after something if you want it. Life ain't easy and you have to WORK for something that you WANT to have

    The bigger question should be: Who is going to pay the $30 per month data plan? The phone is cheap compared to the annual cost of using it.

    ^ If he chops enough firewood and does enough yard work every week @ my house, I'll pay the $30 a month.

    The funny thing is i didn't actually ask her to match my amount, she decided she would....But when my mom says she's going to get me something expensive i actually feel bad and say you don't have to but she wants to...

    My mom already pays for mine because she got me the storm 2 years ago not knowing we had to pay it but i don't think she has a big problem with that.

    I don't live in a place where we would need firewood anyway...

    Instant gratification is whats common in this new generation. I grew up in the 90s and we were so siked about earning money through lemonade stands and such. I fear my country's sake ever more with these kids soon growing up to adults.
