I just got a new phone and my bill is part of my parents family plan. I'm wondering if I can split of and pay my own bills or if I have to wait till my tab is payed off?

The tab is linked to your line specifically. It will just follow your line without issue or needing to pay it off if you separate your line into your own account, which you totally can do. Unless you're an authorized user though whomever is presumably your parents, will also have to authorize the split IIRC.

You can take over the account by having a credit check done on yourself and then your parents can sign the account over to you(so to speak). This can be done by visiting a booth or speaking to an agent at customer care.
