    Rant

    I have my phone on a friend's family phone plan. I pay her three months at a time, so a sizable (to me) amount.

    I paid first of October for phone through end of the year.

    Today she informs me she can't pay the bill and phones will be shut off Sunday. I have no other phone and a mother sinking into Alzheimer's who calls me constantly.

    Her next two checks are spoken for with rent and insurance, so a motherfucking month without a phone all because she lives way beyond her means.

    I bailed her out a year ago when this happened to the tune of $400 (which she did pay back) but I'm not doing it this time as she's falling further and further behind.

    I FUCKING HATE STUPID PEOPLE

      Is a prepaid account out of the question for you? My kids have prepaid att accounts. Runs them 45 bucks a month or so and they get good reception.

        The phone co might make you a deal. Hopefully.

          Nope. The price is more than triple for me to get my own.

          Due to where I am, I don't get much choice of the little carriers because of bad reception.

            That's terrible, Night. You need a phone ASAP with your mom. Not nice.

            I'd check into Harvey's idea of a pre-paid. I had one for years.

              PrePay.
              Get the 100$ cards if you go that route, your per minute rate is much better and you often get bonus minutes. Had a throw away phone for years that I ran like that. Then I went legit. Pay with cash, always, untraceable.

                        I had that thought at first, but

                        1. She is pretty independent. I would be happy to help if she will take it.
                        2. I don't know how we can do this without her information being out there. If someone knows a way....

                        So....... if she approves it, and if we find a way to protect her privacy.......... I am in for sure.

                            I have a galaxy S5 sitting in the drawer of an end table in my living room. Its activated and costs me about 45 bucks a month. It hasn't seen the light of day in weeks.

                              That is dear. finally, something that is more expensive in the US than in NZ.

                              I pay $30 a month NZ dollars (maybe $20 US) and get 2 gigs data + unlimited texts + 100 mins calling a month, with rollover so whatever I don't use this month rolls over to next month.

                              Given that I am hooked up to the wifi at home and at work when I'm there, I currently have 800 mins and 5.43gb that I can use.

                              Night you have to disentangle yourself from your lovely cousin. that or ask how much it will cost you to go solo, and ask if that is a contribution you can make to her crisis, on the basis that you both sit down and create a functioning budget in excel so she never finds herself in the shit again.

                              I think the latter plan of bailout WITH BUDGETING is a good final move before canning it and going solo. It's your best possible outcome: that you continue the deal and that she learn how to budget. Room must always be given for the best possible outcome.
