How can I convince my mom to get me a better cell?

I have nextel, really the only service that works at my house. I really want the i880, really really bad, and my b-day commn up. Right now I have a custom red i265, it works good and all, I just really want the i880. How could I convince her that she should get my this cell phone. Her argument is that I just got this phone, and she just paid to have a red houseing put on, she would have to pay the full price (500.00), that I have an iPod and a Camera, and a lot of ringtones alredy, end of conversation. It has a mp3 player, video, 2.0 mega.pix. cam, huge screen, ect.
