Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck Still Uses A Flip Phone

When you think about modern sports stars, you may think of them owning flashy things.  I always picture fancy houses, expensive cars and all the best that money can buy.  I’m incredibly encouraged when I see one of those sports stars that isn’t impressed with the finer things.

Take Andrew Luck for example.  He was the first overall pick in the NFL draft last year, and he was able to sign a pretty hefty contract with the Indianapolis Colts.  Hefty to the tune of $22.1 million!  He could pay an actual person to answer every call that comes to him on the fanciest phone you could buy.  But according to Matt Hasselbeck, he still uses an old-fashioned Samsung flip phone.

So why does he own a $10 phone when he could easily afford something better?

I had a history growing up of sort of breaking them or losing them, so in my mind it was logical not to get a nice phone because I’d break it or spill water on it. If you really want to go deep, I think subconsciously it’s a way of getting away from the internet, social media and e-mail.

— Andrew Luck

I understand that.  I was that way for a long time.  However, I had a bunch of people at work telling me how great their smartphones are and finally I caved.  Honestly…I’m glad that I did.  My phone is amazing!

Who owns the oldest phone that you know of?  Why won’t they upgrade?
