Yup...working to get off the FS and just bought my sister's iphone 3 when she upgraded. My phone was shot..and she was selling hers for 50 bucks. I had it unlocked for straight talk and my bill is 45/month for everything.
So no, I didn't spend a crazy amount on the phone. And a phone is a necessity since I have kids who go to school so if school needs me I can get the call. I use my phone to schedule the kids medical and dental appointments, and I even use it for work. I am a WIC BF peer counselor part time and women call me all hours if they need me

ETA: I work, so I pay taxes. I am in school as well and am paying early on my loans. My apartment building won't allow for landline phones because the wires were never installed originally since it is hud housing. I am moving out next week when taxes come because it is hard to save money here because as my income increases, so does my rent. Taxes are giving me the boost I need for the deposit and all that. Oh, and before you bash, I am only getting 2k back, and it is all going towards new place.

It's a necessity?  How necessary would it be if you weren't depending on your neighbors to pay your food bill and you actually had to provide your own basic needs?

I paid 75 bucks at walmart for my iphone 4. So yeah, the welfare folks can spring for one if they save their pennies.

I was thinking the same thing. There are apps for everything under the sun it seems.

Some people just aren't going to care what your story is.  Don't worry about what others think and good luck to you!
