Cellular phones makers updated their product as much as possible every month. They come up with new designs and features and the price of course are expensive. If you are into mobile phones and keeps on investing and buying new handsets because you know later that there will be new units that will be introduced and buy a new one again.

Keep the Receipt. On purchased, you should keep the receipt for future purposes.

Keep the Warranty Card. Like the receipt, the warranty card is also important if there are some defects with the unit. If you wish to sell your phone after 6 months you've been using, you can still offer the buyers that the unit still under warranty.

Keep the Box of the item. This is the advantage that in the future if you want to sell your item you can still show that your item is still have its box and you taking care of it.

Buy a nice leather pouch for your phone. To take good care of the unit.
