Re: Lifetime ...

Congratulations! You just learned about phones what everyone has always known about steak/hamburger, Fords and BMW, etc. The top gear is never WORTH the extra you pay- but if you want a 10% improvement, the 30% increase in price -or more-is- the price.

Please provide details of anything ever sold where the really good stuff is sold dirt cheap and the crap gets sold for high prices.
