To those whose parents pay for their iPhones and galaxies...

Don't you feel bad at all? I'm sorry but I would not be okay with my parents paying my phone bill! I wouldn't allow it. I understand a phone may be a necessity for jobs and so they can contact their grandchildren but some people say they have iPhones and galaxies. I would use the bare minimum-- not something that has data fees and costs a lot to fix or replace.

$60 is not a lot for unlimited data and insurance.

WTF?!?! People have their parents for their cell phones. My parents would tell me I'm shit out of luck if I can't pay for it myself.

My dad pays for our entire family's phones because we're all on his business plan. No, I dont feel bad. Grateful, but not guilty. He has plenty of money.

We didn't have cell phones as kids. They were very expensive at the time. We had pagers. Lol remember those? I paid for my own pager and my own phone once they became affordable.

my son's on our plan and we paid for his service until March of this year. He went into the navy in august, got out of boot camp then A school end of november, I paid december for hims as a present

January and february for him as a birthday present

and February we decided he had pay his own way starting march, not only was it time, his income steady now but I also went on partial Unemployment.

When I let him know he sent us 350 dollars, (his portion is about 100 dollars a month) and said he wanted to make sure we were okay with me being partially unemployed.

He's a sweet nugget.

He's paid it every month since.
