    Re: How long/since when

    Unfortunately, "since when" has a meaning as an idiom which can confuse your third and fourth sentences. I would go with 1 and 2.

    since when

    for how long have you believed Since when do you have the right to tell me what to do?But really, since when is $250 too expensive for a nice watch?Usage notes: used in the form of a question when you do not believe a particular attitude or situation is right or true
