No. I don't have time for all that stuff. I want to keep it simple.

I think free is good, and tech dum anyway. This galaxy three phone has proven to be a pain in my a--. However, I am going to assume that I will appreciate it a little more when I learn to operate the blooming thing, I am on page one of the 204 page operators manual

I have an ipod touch. As others mentioned, there are tons of free apps out there. I will pay $.99 for an APP. I figure, it's a dollar and if I use the app on a regular basis, I haven't wasted my money. Some APPs are outrageously priced. So, you do have know what you are buying.
Do you have an ipad ? If you're using an Apple Ipad, you don't have to use a credit card to buy songs, books, tv episodes or APPs. Apple has gift cards you can purchase. That's what I use. I buy a $15-$25 card and load it into my account. Whenever I buy something, the amount is deducted from the total amount.
In the US, many retailers have gift cards. Amazon.com has gift cards. Lots of places here use them. I don't know if they are available in Malaysia or not, but you should check. It's a way to buy stuff without using your credit card.
However, I will say that I have used my credit card to purchase things online. Can your information be stolen ? Unfortunately, yes, that is something that could happen to any of us. Does it happen all the time ? No. In general, it really is very safe and secure to shop online with a credit card.
You just make sure you shop from reputable websites. Why not ask your friends what websites they use ? You may feel much safer if you get a recommendation from a friend who shops online.

The only thing I paid for, app wise, was the Sparkpeople app. Otherwise I don't see a point in paying for an app. There's nothing, other than the SP app, that I feel I can't live without... then again I didn't get an iphone until December so I lived without for a long time before that :)

I always look for the freebies. But I'm cheap by nature anyway; I don't want to shell out even 1.99, if I can get something similar for free. The only time I've bought any apps was when I was given a gift card to Barnes & Noble (I have a Nook). Got some cheap books -- they have a ton of stuff for less than 2 bucks-- and 2 cheap game apps. Only apps on my phone are free ones.

I go for the free stuff but I have been known to buy a few apps that are 1.99 or less. What really bothers me are apps that are "free" but after a few days, I am told that I need to upgrade for a nominal fee. That is when I dump the causing app.
tablet? Firstly, I don't have a credit card. Secondly, when you keep buying things online, it adds up very fast. Thirdly, I'm not willing to fork out money for every single little thing, so I always look for freebies. What about you?
