How do I convince my dad to let me have a smartphone?

I'm 15, almost 16, and even though my mom is on board with the idea, my step-dad thinks that I don't need a smartphone. The phone that I'm using now is an LG chocolate and it barely even charges or holds a charge. It's literally a joke. I've had a smartphone before where I didn't pay for anything and then when it disappeared I went back to a regular phone. I've offered to pay for the difference in the monthly bill for the phone, unlike the smartphone I had before. What can I do here?

    good luck with that one.and thats a hard task because some parents think its a waste of money so you may have to get a job and buy your own smartphone. im 30 yrs old btw and I asked my mom before and she said no way you buy it because its a waste of money.so I did buy one and bought my mom one too.
