How can I convince my dad to get me a new phone? I already have one, but it's about to break.

So I had my first phone for a year and broke it after a year and a half. I had a good case, the reason It broke was because at that unfortunate time I had my case off =(. I got my second phone and broke the screen within half a year because the case was too thin. It still works, but it's probably gonna break within a couple of months anyways (because I broke the screen on my first phone and it stopped working because of that). This time, I've found the perfect phone and company carrier, should I convince my dad to buy me a new phone or should I wait? Also, how would I convince him?

After breaking 2 phones I don't see why your Dad should have to buy you a new one. You need to get a job and buy your own this time.

Why not ask to get your screen fixed? If it isn't cracked to badly you can get it done fairly cheaply

Just hide it somewhere and tell him that someone stole it at school.

it doesnt matter if the phone case is too thin, its the fact that you cant keep a phone intact for more than a year and a half. you need to see what its like to pay for your own phone, then maybe you will be more responsible with your things.

So how much phones did you break? .. I lost count. Sry had to ask.. Lol but I would probably just stick to the phone you have now and wait until it breaks.. When it breaks and when you near a sibling or guardian... When you go past them... You "accidentally" drop your already broken phone on the ground.. And say OMG!!! You broke my phone! Now that's a plan...

My parents got me my first phone. It was a cheap-o, but it lasted a couple years. I've paid for all of my own since then. You should too
