well works 9 times out of 10 but, I guess what I would do is
say something like "Sorry I don't know if im ready for a long term contract yet"
or show u my Android and say something cheezy like "upgrades available babe"
or "Oh you have to pick that one up, I'll be holding it for you
or show the phone and say "It's right here" as you put it in your paints" << ~~ gotta be carefull with that one might get slaped ~~
lol I could go on and on
plus you dont buy the cheapest phone they make nice prepaid phones
