I feel used by a man...

I'm not sure what to do. I've posted this before but I was looking for more advice.

I turned on a cell phone for this man I was sleeping with because I'm an idiot! He pays the bill. That's no problem. The issue is that we no longer speak. He ignores me when I speak to him. He's rude when he replies.

Last week Friday we saw each other at a bar and left drunk together...yes I'm an idiot. In the taxi he told me to duck because he didn't want to be seen with me. That's been stuck in my mind ever since. That was what made me finally realize he doesn't deserve this favor I'm doing him.

But I message him and ask him to let's go put it in his name and he ignores me. I know it's easy to say just turn the phone but I can't. He has to finish paying off his iPhone 5s before it gets turned off.

My plan was...I would have to switch that payment plan to my number and I would have to pay the $50 every month meaning he will get a $250 iPhone 5s as that's all he's paid on it out of the $1000+. Then I could turn it off but I'll be stuck paying for the phone. He doesn't deserve this either.

So what should I do?
1. Keep the phone in my name until he misses a payment.
2. Switch the plan and turn his phone off now which would mean paying for his cell phone.

A friend I've asked says option 1 but I feel she's biased because she's dating his best friend.

Before you assume anything or are unclear about something please ask.

Option 1. As soon as the contract is up turn it off.

Got yourself into a pickle didn't you?  Wait until he pays the phone off or misses a payment and have it turned off.

If he misses a payment that could affect your credit. Shut the phone off pay the remainder and lesson learned.

I read your first post a while ago, he is a pos. I would call the cops then since it is your property and he is refusing to give it back. I know we all make mistakes. You might need to take it to small claims court.

I would also ignore him when you see him. Let him pay off the phone and you have learned a valuable lesson.
