Hey all, I love my N4, but seeing everyone in the android communities with the nexus 5 makes me cry inside, so I wanted to get one. Problem is, I'm 14 which is below the legal age to work, I root/flash/unlock/etc. peoples phones off craigslist, but that isn't too efficient as I get about $40 a week from that IF THAT, and $40 a month goes to my servers, any ideas on how I can make money? Preferably online as I go to school and I can't really do as many things during the day. I know Java, HTML, CSS, a LITTLE JavaScript, Python, C++, and some Lua. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks all! <3

Well first, I think this is the wrong forum. Might want to post in Q&A. Secondly, my advice as a guy who has experienced the same phone envy as you is to be patient, save up, and wait for the Nexus 6 to come out and get that. It'll hand better battery life, and you're not making a huge step up. I've tried it out, it's not worth the upgrade if you're strapped for cash.

IF you're still interested in a Nexus 5 in spite of all these discouragements, then my advice is this. Sell your phone, which should net you at least half the value (more if you're crafty) of the Nexus 5, and do some phone repair. With the addition of phone repair, which could give you, say, $80/week or every two weeks, within a month you'll have the proper funds. If you sell your phone, get a dumb phone in the meantime. I'll donate one of my old ones to you for free if you want.

Shovel snow, mow lawns, work your ass off doing odd jobs going door to door until you get that phone (wash windows, teach elderly how to use a computer or tablet, walk dogs). You'll be a better man for it and it'll build up that work ethic. Honestly when I was younger I walked rich people's dogs and made a ton of money, helped me save up for a car.

I would say find a part time job with at least 10-18 hours per week, in one or two month (depends upon salary) u'll be able to buy nexus 5 without even selling nexus 4.

Make your first ten posts meaningful by preferably answering questions in a Q&A forum or doing concise responds in a general forum?

how good is your PC? You could set it up as a bit coin Miner, mine a s##tload of bit coins and sell them for a profit?
