So my kids got it all figured out but I pay for the phone so I thought I would turn it off for a few days and see if his attitude changed when I go to suspend service it makes me think how hard it might be to reactivate service so what are your thoughts on that and if you have any ideas to help

I am not sure if this will work, but you could look in Family Base.  With this source you can control who they call, text, and what website they go to. It is just $5 per month.  That may control their usage.  Try calling Customer Service (*611) about it.

I hope it helps! Good Luck!

If you do this, you won't get get the desired outcome.  The last parent who did this on the forum found out suspending device does not prevent the child from using the device with a wifi signal or hotspot connection from a friend.  Only sure way is to take the phone away.  Since the kids don't really use the phone, all they need is an Internet connection in any fashion to get all the functions they use.
