But husband pd $9.95/mo to block him. However, some of the charges may still go through. Those that came through on this mo's bill are in dispute and awaiting a response. Then we wait for next mo's bill. How did he do it with-all the blocks we put on? He went to K's house (He's only allowed there once a wk) and spent the night for his birthday. The ONE time I make an exception for an overnight. K taught him how to plug his phone into the computer and bypass the first sets of blocks. Then when it asks for a password, he says he has forgotten it, and TMobile sends him a temp password. He bought several games, tons of music and I don't know what else. Bottom line: 1) He swore he would never do it again, with-or with-o blocks, and 2) it is Internet access that TMobile wants the customer to have because it makes them more money, so for ea set of blocks you put on it, there is a way to get around it. Hmm. This is what, the 4th, 5th time difficult child has done this? And husband has called TMobile and bitten their heads off? He HAD to sign a contract with-them for 2 yrs in order to have them waive the other charges, which were in the hundreds of dollars. I told him to keep the contract, but take away difficult child's TMobile phone. The basic plan is about $65/mo, which is cheap compared to what difficult child has been doing. I will sign him up on my Verizon acct and limit everything. It would be about $10. He insists that Verizon is as shady as TMobile. I'm going to check it out anyway. Why couldn't I let a friend borrow it or pay me or something? Anything is cheaper than letting difficult child have it. Meanwhile, difficult child is in his room, sobbing, sans phone. We have to give it to him to take to school so we know whether he is staying after, etc. It's one of the few ways he will communicate willingly. I've been wanting to take it away from him at night forever, and did for awhile, but husband always caves. I'll just make a copy of the bill and wave it in front of his face the next time he forgets.
