I didn't interpret "Nothing last forever" to be any kind of endorsement/condemnation. It's basically a fact. As far as when it's the right time depends on each individual's situation. For me, I get a new phone about every three years- when the trade in value on my existing phone is still decent.

Good article.

Interestingly, the only reason I stopped using my BlackBerry was because T-Mobile stopped supporting them. My Bold 9900 was shelved, although, it still fires up for an occasional trip down memory lane.

The next phone I kept for four years & it was just time to upgrade due to the advancements in technology. The ensuing three phones, I kept two years each. Two out of those three had hardware issues, so I upgraded & the third I still have as my backup device.

I thought the commenter was being sarcastic
