My phones 1000 so that means it was 112 hours at 9 an hour or 6 days

All the phones I've ever owned added together does not equal $1000. But it's about what is important to each person and what they want to splurge on.

Your phone must be a bit older this isthe most expensive phone ive ever owned will likely have it for a good coiple of years at least

Older and not Apple or Samsung. It finally dawned on me one day that there are other brands that aren't bad out there. With all the planned obsolescence, they all die after a few years anyway, so I don't choose to invest a lot.

Is that your regular hourly or adjusted after taxes and fixed expenses?

I’d recommend figuring that number out, and use 8 hour days (or whatever your usual shift is) to determine how long it would actually take for you to earn that money, after paying your other obligations (rent, utilities, food, transportation, etc)

Unless you’re living at home and don’t have bills to pay, my guess is that it would take at least 2-3 months to earn enough extra to pay for $1,000 phone if your non-adjusted hourly wage is $9.
