BM drama constant

We have joint custody with every other week for a while now. The BM has a cellphone at her house for ss. And about six months ago we purchased a phone for him here. He uses our phone on the weeks he is here and her phone when he is there. Well the mom wants ss upgrade at her house so now is trying to make a huge issue over as having two phones. She thinks he should just be able to take our phone to her home. This is coming from the woman that throws fits over him bringing a game here to play or forgetting socks at our home. Wondering does anyone else have this situation? What would you do? She said she was willing to pay half the bill, but is constantly upgrading and downgrading her own plan .

I would stick with your phone staying with you and her phone staying with her. As long as she doesn't try to not let you talk to him while he is there I guess.

The order says he can call the other parent but other parent can't call, text or email. He wants to take our phone and he is 15 . He likes our phone because he has a data phone here. We have rules in regards to the phone and she has free range at his moms. We have caught porn on phone before so we watch closely. Think she wants to pay half of bill to use upgrade and try to stop our rules.

If she wants him to have a phone (upgraded or whatever), then she should provide that.

She wouldn't be able to use your upgrade anyways.

Yes, they actually can.  BM had a fit in court because we had a prepaid cell phone here and wouldn't let her have the number.  The judge added it to the CO that she is to provide cell phones for both boys.

 i would keep it as is. if she wants the upgrade for him, then she can get it on her plan. you know she won't pay you for half. she started this battle... she got her phone for him first and wouldn't let him bring it back and forth. as long as both parents have both numbers (for emergencies, as the CO says you can't contact... which btw i think is ridiculous!) if she wants to take it to court, let her. but it's gonna cost her to do so. and actually, unless she's going for anything else, she won't get anywhere with it.
