Do I pay off my previous tab right away? I got my phone stolen on Canada day. The phone was an iphone5c. Having no choice I had to get a new one. I took the proper steps directed by Apple of how to wipe my stolen phone. It's basically a husk to the thief. I'm wondering if the tab I had with the other phone needs to be paid off right away. Or if I can let it continue to be paid off at my own place. I'm 18 years old living pay check to pay check. I just need to know if I should be worried of any surprise debts.
