I worked with a guy that carried six phones. One was his everyday phone and the other five were for his girlfriends. He was married too.

Man, you should have told him about the Sideline app.

My phone cost 14.95 at Walmart some years ago. It's a phone, why spend a bundle on a phone. Gonna have to replace it tho, ATT says they're gonna discontinue service for it. Gotta update it in Feb. Trying to decide whether to update or just do without.

Phone is more expensive than most any pistol I’d carry for the day, but then again phones are way too d4mn expensive.

I have to have a smart phone for work and choose to have one large enough to see a movie on a plane if I am on a long flight. So I have an iPhone 8 Plus.
There are a lot of good pistol choices below that level.

At the end of the day, I don’t do cheap - I do 100% reliable (which is more than I can say for the phone. But I guess by the price definitions given I’d really fall into a non-existent midrange/midrange category.

I don’t see carrying a gun that is more than $800 when so many can be found for $400-$750.

I carry a gun. I carry a phone. I choose the one I like best and my choice of one has no bearing on my choice of the other.
