simple jquery issue

I have a button on a div on my site.
When you click button A, then button B becomes visible by changing the class.

Then when button B has that new class if you click on it, something will happen. right now i'm trying to just log a console .
 
I don't know what I did wrong on the script. I am not getting an error, but no console log either.
I do see the button B has the correct class changed to it.
i tried also doing it with an id.
either one isn't logging anything.

what might be wrong?
  $(".pledgeBut").click(function(){
	  $(".thumbbuttonoff").removeClass('thumbbuttonoff').addClass('thumbbuttonon').attr('id', 'buttonon');
	   });
	  
$(".thumbbuttonon").click(function () {
console.log('button on');
$("#phonescreen1").toggle();
$("#phonescreen2").toggle();
});

$("#buttonon").click(function() {
	console.log("try two");
});

Try this because you set event on non existant element.
For example $("#notYetInThePage").click(function()
will not work

when : $(document).on("click", ".CheckIf_ImPresentInThePage", function() {
will work

  $(".pledgeBut").click(function(){
	  $(".thumbbuttonoff").removeClass('thumbbuttonoff').addClass('thumbbuttonon').attr('id', 'buttonon');
  });
	  
$(document).on("click", ".thumbbuttonon", function () {
    console.log('button on');
    $("#phonescreen1").toggle();
    $("#phonescreen2").toggle();
});

$(document).on("click", "#buttonon", function() {
	console.log("try two");
});

Don't know what we're supposed to be clicking but leakim is probably right anyway.

Yes because you're using an old jQuery version : 1.6
jQuery.on s available starting jQuery 1.7...

Instead jQuery.on you can use jQuery.live
http://api.jquery.com/live/

  $(".pledgeBut").click(function(){
	  $(".thumbbuttonoff").removeClass('thumbbuttonoff').addClass('thumbbuttonon').attr('id', 'buttonon');
  });
	  
$(".thumbbuttonon").live("click" , function () {
    console.log('button on');
    $("#phonescreen1").toggle();
    $("#phonescreen2").toggle();
});

$("#buttonon").live("click" , function () {
	console.log("try two");
});

But why would that happen.
at the time of the click my new id will work.
it's just not there at the time of document.load

How do people do these fancy animations? things happen later as id's and classes change
