You need to be a legal adult to sign up for a postpaid account, I don't think you do for prepaid though.

Curtules' right, Mitchell.

You can't "co-sign" or anything like that. As a minor, you can't sign any type of legally-binding contract. Your parents (or legal repsondant) will have to sign for you, in their name and consequently be responsible for the payment of the bill.

Have you considered prepaid? I'm almost twice the legal age, but prefer prepaid myself. It's really that good :)
