    hey i was wondering if theres a way i can get an iphone.

    im 14 and im on a family plan with two other family members. I plan on paying the bill 100% by myself but the only thing is that i cant get the contract . And everyone else is in my family is on a plan already so they cant put under their name. I don't know much about wireless bills or contracts so any help is appreciated thanks in advance.

    Take a parent with you (one that is on the contract) and buy the iPhone. (Assuming you are with AT&T currently) AT&T will simply upgrade your phones plan to an iPhone plan, you will keep your family minutes and everything, but you will extend the contract on your number for 2 more years.

    Yeah, you can keep your current plan, and on *your line only* it would add $20 a month, for data and 200 text messages.

    You just plug it into itunes and select "replace current phone."

    *Your line only* would then have a 2 year commitment as well.

    wow its that easy?
    so all it is, is 20 bucks extra to the original family plan for the iphone with the data plan? Like with internet and maps and everything?
