    I manage to keep within my contract limit. And to resolve your problem, simply dump your boyfriend! Easy.

    I used to rack up huge phonebills, with Wes (due to long distance relationship) until we moved in together. But it shouldn't really cost so much if you are on BT? If you are on BT, convince your and his parents to sign up for carphone warehouses TalkTalk, it is free, you just get seperate bill for line rental and calls, but you can have one other talk talk member who you can call for free whenever for how long you like!! evening and weekend calls to anyone else is 5.5p for an hour, and daytime calls are cheaper than plain BT too!! If you want more details, go to carphone warehouse website and look for talktalk!!

    Pooo... I hate it when they become unreasonable like this.

    Plus, my term holiday just started. ARGH! I live like 5 minutes walking distance from my bf and I'm stranded in this house without a phone. LOlz.. the irony of it all!

    They're willing to pay 18,000 pounds/year to send me to the UK to study, but won't pay 100 pounds/month for the next 3 months before I'm gone. Lolz...

    rant!

    Get him to call you!

    My phone bill rarely gets up to about 50 pounds. That would be because i get **** loads of minutes, and then when i do call my boyfriend, he always tells me not to waste my minutes, and he calls back :P

    Hmm.. prob is that he's impoverished while I'm a 'brat' by financial standards. So it makes perfect sense for me to call him, if only my parents didnt give me such a hard time.
