    Hey everyone, Im new to the forums and i just got my droid yesterday. Im loving the phone, but I just have one problem. My phone is in my dads family plan and in result to this it is on his credit card. Now If i dl any paid apps i assume its going to charge his credit card? Is there a way to make it so it charges my credit card just for the apps? For example for iphone u create a Itunes account seperate from the bill and it charges your credit card which u have attached to the itunes account. Is there anything i can do for this there are some great paid apps that i really dont want to charge on my dads card.

    Thanks

    I have yet to buy anything from the market but right now the market is not attached to the VZW account and you have to pay through Google Checkout with a Credit card.

    ^This is correct. Downloaded apps are through Google and will not show up on your dad's Verizon account.

    not sure, but bam's answer sounds like you should be able to do that separately. welcome to the forums!

    Whatever you do make damn sure you tell the NOT to put your card "on file"

    when you bought apps from market, it will ask you for a google checkout account. if you dont have any, it will set up one for you but you need a credit card for it..
    so basically whatever you've dl from market wont show on your verizon bill but on the credit card that you used on google checkout.

    it was my first time buying something on the market and since i never had any google checkout transactions before this, the google checkout asked me, while on market app, what credit card i would like to use, and it set it up for me from there..
