How old are you, what iphone do you have and do you pay your own phone bill

I'm turning 20 on the 17th this December.
Been paying my phone since I got it on December 15 2011 and I have the 4s. Oh and I pay 60 a month. What about you guys?

I just tend to assume that most MacRumors members are proper adults who can afford to pay for their own toys, and who buy the devices that fit their needs and budget.

Not the ones who ask black or white? nor the ones who are OCD obviously on their first phone EVER.

I am 17 and I have an iPhone5. The bill is somewhere around $200, but I don't pay it. That $200 includes multiple smartphones, not just mine.

Old enough to have a mortgage, so you want me to spend what?

My old dumb phone average was usd$12.50/month, but since upgrading to iPhone, I think they want to bump me up at least $30/mo but am resisting. I don't ride the bus so no watching video, from home (WIFI) to car (listen to music that's is) to work (WIFI) so really no need for gigs of cellular data.

Oh and I cut cable TV too, they are NOT making anything$ out of me!

There are already a couple of threads about this BTW.

My age is private. Ive been paying my own bills over a decade...

My parents never even gave me an allowance, bought me clothes or paid for any knick knacks like cell phones. When I was in high school I had to wear what was lying around the house (mom's hand me downs) or buy it with Christmas and Birthday money. All I got was a roof over my head and enough food to feed my belly. Teens and young adults who have parents buy them phones are spoiled; not to sound bitter (actually I am very bitter) but I never got the sort when younger. Once I was 18 I moved out and worked f/t to support myself and got my own apartment. Never got a dime from my parents even when I was living with them pretty much let alone once I moved out (except the basics; food etc). Being independent didn't make me a better person btw; it made me more bitter.

Since you used the term knick knacks....I feel pretty confident guessing the age range.....
