Oh my god seriously? I'm not choosing sides (because both you and your parents are right to an extent) but how long is it until they let you use celluar data again? I know how expensive data is. Once when I had this horrible flip phone thing, I left my phone with some kids while I went to the bathroom and when I came back, they just opened up the internet. I wasted a few dollars because of them.

@charlotte: im not allowed to use it anymore unless it's for an emergency, like if im at school i can use internet because there's internet at my school that students use, and if im at home im obviously connected to wifi, but if im in the car or at the mall i can't use it.. so i can basically only use it when im at my own house, a close friend's house, or school .-.

@aimi tell that to my parents!! they're just mad because my previous bill was $400 dollars BUT IT WASN'T MY FAULT BECAUSE MY PHONE KEPT USING 3G BY ITSELF when it wasn't actually my fault. also, read what i said to charlotte (emi)

^ If your phone uses cellular without you directly using it, try disabling some apps from cellular data (if you haven't already). I'm assuming you have an iPhone, as I recall you talking about getting a new one a couple months back. Anyways, go to:
>settings
>cellular
  and then turn off the apps that are big data hogs/you don't want to use data on.
  sometimes even features of your phone like location services can use cellular, even when you are not using it
  deliberately.

I've always come in under my plan, so here are some apps I recommend turning off:

-GAMES. Most of the time they don't use much, but if the game is constantly submitting your highscores to GameCenter, it uses quite a lot of data. Besides, even if a game only uses a couple GB a month, the amount you save from disabling all your games adds up after a month.

-Photos. Believe it or not, photos actually uses cellular data. This is because of it uploading your pictures to photo stream, which it automatically does every time you take a photo. Just turn off data for this app, and your photos will be loaded onto photo stream when you get on WIFI. This does not save a lot of cellular data, but it helps.

-Facetime/Youtube/Vine/any app that shows videos. These apps will be the biggest data hogs. DO NOT use cellular data for them AT ALL unless you're wayyy under your plan. Videos are large files, and these will hurt your cellphone bill.

-Social networking apps. I'm not saying turn off all social network apps; you can keep things like Snapchat or Kik. Hey, even Instagram is not too bad. But if you find that these are the apps using the most data, you should consider disabling them for a while.


Those are my recommendations-- they might not be the best, you might have different opinions, whatever. Still I have found that this really helps, so try it if you need.





As far as paying back the money goes, I suggest you get a babysitting job. That was how I paid for buying my phone, and maybe it could work out for you, too.

That's really messed up. I use GPRS Internet connection at the country, often it's very expensive - but only thing for me that was necessary was to view email (luckily yandex has lofi version for mobile phones), and incoming Kidzworld comments. Now due to stupid admins who disallow people 18 and older only thing left is an email. Well, and also this forum (however I doubt it will work fine with Opera Mini).
As about mother - that's very typical for American parents to be like that. My parents usually are very fine, although they used to be like that when I was 9 (at that time, I got Nokia 2600 which had no GPRS support). The only app that uses GPRS I was using was Jimm, the unofficial/illegal ICQ client (I used ICQ since 11 until 15 years old).
As about Internet connection from the computer, I also had similar situations. Luckily, now I have unlimited Internet connection that costs only $10 per month for a static IP address. But earlier, I had a provider that had payment by traffic. It was very expensive, often the account balance was minus $400 (this means DEBT)!!! All I was using was same (ICQ, email, games, skype, youtube, torrents...).
