  2. yeah…separation between upper and lower class here is probably HUMONGOUS. if people wnat to keep spending on a new phone every 12 wks, they can go right on ahead ^^ the investors in NEW YORK and AMERICA would love Korea for that.

  3. I’m not sure why America’s cell phones aren’t as good as those overseas. It’s always like that with electronics. The stuff abroad is better.

  4. technology these days.  crazy!  i wish we had better cell phones here. even though mine broke i try to get something nicer, but didn’t have much options to choose from.  oh well!  have a good one!
