I'm 15, and I have enough income to sustain my own phone/bill. I was wondering if I was able to have one under my own name, whether I need a co-sign (and if so, will it affect their credit). Thanks, any help is appreciated!

For a monthly plan you need to be of legal age since there's a contract involved. Prepaid involves no contract and therefore has no minimum age requirement.
