    Hi there.
    I like having nice mobile phones. I always have. But nowadays I cannot afford a new mobile phone. And mine is duffed up big time. I always buy nice smart phones and so far all on Pay As You Go(PAYG)

    But I was wondering there are nice phones that I like and seeing as I am 16 and much more mature and responsible why can't my parents give me a contract? I have pushed that idea onto them for years and years and they won't budge. Something however gives me the good feeling that they may soon be able to give me more responsibility soon.

    The point is how do I convince my parents to take a contract out on thier name and give me the phone. Seeing as I do not chat too much I shall be well within the whole 200 minute a month.

    I am looking at smartphones btw. If you have any good deals that you can show me then please do share. Give info and Links and give ideas on how to convince them

    I have a part time job so I thought maybe I could use that to grease the wheels a bit. Help me out please thank you.

    Rep for real good suggestions. And If you really do end up helping me get a contract phone then I will sub you for a whole month. If you don't know what a sub is then you got to : :faq:

    Thank you people
