We’ve been hearing a lot whispers of some kind of new Minute Allowance feature with T-mobile, but thanks to our faithful tipsters we can safely say that teens around the US are not excited for July 30th. From what we are hearing, minute allowance is designed to keep families connected, and overages down. Parents will be able to control minute usage, costs, and more, via both MyT-mobile.com and their T-zones portal on their mobile phone. This will be great for those parents with over talkative teens that don’t know when to hang up. Hell, it could be used as a punishment too, the last thing teens want to hear is “Your not grounded, but you can only use 30 minutes on your phone this month.” However it is used, it is definitely a step in the right direction of stopping unwanted and unexpected (and outrageous) overages.
