RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)- It's graduation season, and not only will those recent grads be looking for work, many will be leaving mom and dad's cell phone plan and getting one of their own. Before you make the leap, there are some things you need to keep in mind.
Jake Anthony, with AT&T says graduation is always a busy time. We wanted to know his advice on making the switch. "Well I am sure the graduates want me to say stay on the family plan and the parents would love to see them leave the plan. It really comes down to the situation," he tells us.
Of course, it all boils down to the money. With mom and dad no longer paying the bill, students will have to keep track of their phone usage and find a plan that works. "They are really no different than any other consumer. When they are going to shop for wireless service, they need to ask themselves a couple of questions, how do you plan on using that phone and what is your budget," Anthony explains.
