    Yes I do. I pay for their cellphone bills so I chose the fixed monthly unlimited rates. Sometime service is bad but they can't complain because they are getting it for free from me.

    Yes, my kids have cell phones for emergencies - it's a flat-rate plan, so I don't really restrict its use.  They rarely talk on the phone, they mostly text to make plans with friends.

    Yes, I did when my kids were in high school, but as soon as they graduated, I made them pay for their own phone and I let them stay on my plan so it was less expensive for them. This was not a problem because they had jobs already, as I made them pay their own car insurance, so they had to have a job or no driving privileges, or phone.

    Yes, her phone is one of 3 on the family plan. Her phone is also the only phone I pay extra for the insurance protection.

    No "teenagers" anymore....PRAISE THE HEAVENS!!!     Huh?, Oh, sorry.  I get a bit carried away with my joy.   I did my time, roxanne, believe me.  I paid for everything.....phones, cars, insurances, sports & equipment, musical instruments, the basics, the name it.  A Crazy woman, I was!
    They're all married and living great lives (thank Heaven once again)...have children of their own (I can't WAIT...til they feel the pinch! heheh)  and I feel like the richest woman in the world since now and then, I actually have 2 nickles to rub together.
    I keep sending my sons my bills.....and wouldn't you know it?  There seems to be a kink in the Postal System!!   They swear they haven't received a thing from me except their birthday cards with a check enclosed.   Weird, huh?
