When you upgrade your phone do you keep the old one?

This is where some decision making comes into play. You basically have two options when it comes to your old phone: you keep it or you ditch it. That's the basis of it, anyway. If you decide to keep your device, then you at least have a back-up plan in the case that something happens to your new phone.
