I like to change my strings once every 3 months. Sometimes I have to change the E string more often because it tends not to last as long as the others. It also depends on what I am doing.. if I have a recital or an audition, I like to have strings that are no older than 2 weeks for the big day.
A good way to know that you need new strings is paying attention to the intonation.. Old strings tend not to stay perfectly in tune.
