YSAK 149: Warning! Teens with cell phones will cost you money!

This woman is one step away from "blaming the media" for how much her children's behaviour is costing her.

What to do when you BUY your child a cell phone, GIVE it to him or her, HAND it to them for unsupervised use, don't PAY ATTENTION to what they do, don't INTERACT with them enough to find out, or TALK to your kids about technology?

What to do? Blame the evil evil evil cell phone companies. Comme ca:

Parents Beware
Price Free

To All parents,When you purchase a cellphone for your child,Ask before you sign a contract at TheAliant Store,Bayers lake to block the internet on the phone,As a parent you will recieve a massive phone bill because your child has used the browser without even knowing they have accessed the browser,I have personally spoke to a number of parents who have the same problem, adults too,you can hit a button without knowing ,and then your bill will be outrages!!!!!!!!!The cell phone stores have people working here who are too young ,no knowledge of having a teenager for they should be telling you if you are purchasing a cellphone,The managers are in on the money grabbing sceme also,because as a parent they could warn a parent of this access ,You are signing up for talk and text,but beware, block the internet at once!!!!This is how they are making massive profits on the backs of all working poor parents!!!!!!!!!!!!!When you complain ,you possible can have these charges rduced to half of the bill,WOW THANKS FOR ONLY RIPPING ME OFF FOR HALF OF YOUR CHARGES,THEY ARE THE WORST SCAMMERS PRAYING ON PARENTS,BEWARE OF THE COMPANIES ....THANKS FOR READING!!!
And here's the fine print: read the fine print. Hell, also read the large print that says YOU WILL BE BILLED FOR ALL USAGE, EVEN IF YOU ARE IGNORANT.

Rest assured, cell phone providers (and liquor companies, drug dealers, pornographers and birth control manufacturers) will "pray" on parents and their lack of involvement. It's good business because it's a bottomless pit of money.

Update:
This poster actually has three ads. All inappropriate, all against the rules. All angry. ANGRY!!!!! Lots of !!!! marks.

Neither of these ads is even in the "cell phone" category. They're both in Electronics, and both posted on the same day. This person's "someone-other-than-me-(and my perfect child)-is-at-fault!" rage is uncontained.

Here's another shout-out (shout-at) about cell phones:
PARENTS BEWARE

ARE YOU BUYING YOUR CHILD OR TEENAGER A CELLPHONE FOR XMAS?BEFORE YOU SIGN A CONTRACT AND THE SALESPERSON ACTIVATES THE PHONE,DO NOT LEAVE THE STORE WITHOUT THE INTERNET BLOCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU WILL RECIEVE A BILL FOE CHARGES BECAUSE YOUR TEENAGER HAS ACCIDENTALLY ACCIDENTALLY USED THE BROWSER, EVERY PARENT AND FRIEND HAS THE SAME COMPLAINT,WHEN YOU CALL THE COMPANY THEY SAY THEY WILL HALF THE CHARGES,THANKS FOR ONLY HALF RIPPING ME OFF!!!! DO NOT LEAVE THE STORE UNLESS THE INTERNET IS BLOCKED!!!! YOU ARE SIGNING UP FOR TALK AND TEXT,THIS IS HOW THEY ARE MAKING RECORD PROFITS,ALSO THE 20 YEAR OLD SELLING THE PHONES ARE NOT A PARENT SO THEY CANT WARN YOU!!!!!!PARENT TO PARENT ,DO NOT LEAVE STORE WITHOUT BLOCK ON THE INTERNET!!!!!!!!!!!!! CHECK OUT CELLPHONE COMPLAINTS OF ALL BIG NAME COMPANIES, YOU WILL BE SHOCKED!!!!!
MERRY XMAS FROM NOVA SCOTIA

"...they should be telling you if you are purchasing a cellphone"

Shouldn't you know if you're purchasing a cellphone? What did you think it was, a pair of moon shoes?

And learn the damn tech, spaz!
You say the youth that work there are too young to know the tech, they clearly have more experience with it that you do, if you're only now discovering that internet on cellphones is expensive without a proper plan.
