    Hi guys, I need an advice on buying an older model smart phone. I don't want to spend more than $200 on it and I was thinking of getting Atrix 4G that costs less than $200. Is it still good idea to buy this older model since it's not going to get an ice cream sandwich upgrade? Or does this really matter? What would be the lifespan left of this phone? I don't need this phone to play any games, I just need it to browse, email and skype. Do you guys have any other suggestions?

    Thanks for your time.

    I don't see anything wrong with getting the Atrix 4g. It's a good phone. ICS is good, but there's nothing that you absolutely need over Gingerbread.

    the life span depends on how the phone is taken care of.

    Hi Tavenger, I was afraid that if I get a phone that is stuck on Gingerbread and let's say new version of skype comes out it will require ICS to run. Do I need to worry about that? Or does gingerbread OS still have few years left?

    I would think the people at skype would make sure to make things backwords compatible since Gingerbread isn't that old. I would bet that they have more users on gingerbread than ICS. So yeah, I think it has a couple years or more left in it.
