Hello, i was all hyped up about getting the new iphone 3g. Yesterday my dad said i couldnt get it. I even offered to pay the initial cost of the iphone (£100) and then pay him £15 a month, meaning he only had to pay £20 a month, the same as the contract that he wants me to go on.

So i said the old, "its my money i do what i want with it" and now hes being all stubborn about it. Ok so here is what i need to do, i need some advise on how i can persuade my dad to let me get the iphone. He will only let me get one if i get a job, thing is im 14 and the only jobs around are paper rounds, and at the moment there are non about. So i need to persuade him some how to let me get the iphone and how i will benefit from it. He knows all the specs so i cant WOW him with all that, steve jobs did that already Please Register or Log in to view images. So yeah, if anyones got any ideas on how i can get him to let me buy it please post them. I can defiantly afford it, ill get £160 from selling my ipod touch plus cash i already have so thats not a problem, i just think my dad doesn't want me to be spending that much money each month on a phone. Thank you.
