That's one take, but you caould also say that when someone is specifically buying a phone for their child, why not OFFER that as an option? My guess is that it's not because why would you turn away money that you're likely to get at some point. All kids are going to screw it up at SOME point, and if VZW can make another $50 or more because some kid texts until his fingers fall off, why not? I just think that if a parent comes in and says that they are buying a phone for their child that all options should be given to the parents. Give them the tools to make the best decision and then if it happens, shame on them. Regardless, it's not your fault that their kid racked up a huge bill. I speak as a parent whose child ran up a thousand dollars in two months back when there was roaming. Needless to say, that was the LAST month that big Daddy paid the cell bill.
