Mabe earn the money an buy it yourself! Money doesn't grow on trees literally! I have a 4s myself if you have a phone trade it for the 4s if not start with something else because if you break it...

I didn't break it it fell out my pocket and landed on the screen and i wouldnt want to break the phone just to get it iam grateful for what i got i just felt maybe i should get the new one that just came out instead of the five which is way to expensive because mine is pretty old and plus cracked Iam not that stupid nor that type of person that wants everything Iam saving money and trying to earn it by helping with walking dogs so that maybe if they say no I can offer to help with the money...

Why not wait until the iphone5 comes out? It'll be released in October. But I guess the iPhones 4s will be cheaper when the iphone5 does come out

Not knowing your parents I really can't tell you, but if you offer to help pay for it that will definitely help. Or offer to to do extra chores around the house usually does the trick:)

Maybe you could say it's one of the suggested models needed in school & as an application tool for college & it has a unique program linking it with the Library web-site. (I made that up, but it could work)

I think it depends on why they are keeping you from it.
Like responsibility, money.
Just show them that you would do whatever it takes to get what you want.
Just like, nothing dangerous, you know what I'm sayin?

If the rest of your family has the iPhone 4, how come you are the only one that deserves the 4s? When the iPhone5 comes out September 12, the 4 will only be $49.99. That's more affordable and more appropriate for the youngest person in the family.

You should be grateful for what you have. But if you rrrreeeeaaalllllyyyy have to have an iphone 4 than you should know iphones cost about $100-$200 and you have to get a data plan to and the data plan is typically $100 a month.. its expensive :)
