Hey Jaymi. Do you think that maybe buying phones is a bit of way for you to cope with the things that are going on in your life? Or even to cope with other addictions? Have you ever thought about talking to someone about this? If you're spending a lot of money on phones, that could get you into some bad situations.

Ask yourself WHY you really need another phone. I know you say that you feel you need to keep getting more phones, but why do you feel that need? What if you weren't to buy the phone? What emotions would you feel if you decided not to purchase another? I think if you think things like this through, you might get to the bottom of this addiction. If you feel like it's beyond your control, think about talking to someone. I'm sure there would be someone willing to help you out so you don't turn to this kind of thing again in the future.

PM me if you need to talk. Hang in there. x
