Just had to ring up and find out when my daughter can upgrade her mobile phone and this has made me wonder if she would be able to get it in her name yet or not as at this time her phone is in my name because when she got it they wouldn’t let her get it in her name. I have three daughters but only one of them has her mobile in her own name, that would be Kathy-Lee, Jessica’s phone is also in Kathy’s name not sure why as I wasn’t here when she got her phone Jes decided to get an IPhone when Tim and I went on our cruise and Natasha’s phone is in my name. Now Natasha has been having a lot of problems with her phone for the last few months and wants to upgrade so I rang to find out when she can do it and not till next month is the answer.
My girls have all had mobiles since they were in their teens but I would not allow them to get anything other than pre-paid phones till they turned 21yrs as I felt they would only run up high bills and expect me and their dad to pay them. We often see on different current affairs shows stories about how teenagers have run up high mobile phone bills and the parents go to the media hoping to get the bill squashed which really piss me off. I think how these parents could be so stupid to give a child a phone that they are able to run up high bills on.
Now that my girls are in their 20’s I feel they should be having as many things in their own name as possible and not being reliant on their parents, so when she goes to upgrade her phone I will be seeing if she can get it in her own name, if not then yes I will let her continue to have it in my name but I would prefer to have it in her name she is after all 24yrs old now.
