    I'm not 18 yet (18th birthday is Wednesday). My parents called 611 today to set me up as Authorized so I could get the phone on my birthday while they were gone. But then the guy said I would have to wait until Wednesday to get it.

    Is that true? Even being Authorized, I still have to be 18?

    According to California Law:

    A contract is void if one of the participants is a minor.

    That being said..I almost never check the persons age (unless they are like 10 years old lol)
    and I do not an employee would really check either.

    that also means if you get away with it, the contract you sign is void, meaning they cant enforce the 2 year commitment.

    just a little something i picked up in business school before i transferred to engineering school lol

    Yeah :/ thought so. I was hoping to join you guys Sunday morning. Oh well, maybe I can read some more reviews from you guys, watch MWC coverage, and let the info on the 4G plans develop (I too have grandfathered unlimited)
