1. A communication management system comprising:
one or more one or more computing devices; and
one or more instructions when executed on the one or more computing devices cause the one or more computing devices to perform at least:
obtaining a first charge authorization status relating to an affiliation-dependent mobile device and to a first account associated with a first currently-subscribed mobile device;
obtaining a second charge authorization status relating to the affiliation-dependent mobile device and to a second account associated with a second currently-subscribed mobile device;
automatically determining at least one cost-allocation to at least one of the first account associated with the first currently-subscribed mobile device or the second account associated with the second currently-subscribed mobile device at least partly based on the first charge authorization status relating to the affiliation-dependent mobile device and to the first account associated with the first currently-subscribed mobile device and at least partly based on the second charge authorization status relating to the affiliation-dependent mobile device and to the second account associated with the second currently-subscribed mobile device, the affiliation-dependent mobile device being at least one of an unsubscribed mobile device, a formerly-subscribed mobile device, or a formerly-charged mobile device; and
causing the affiliation-dependent mobile device to indicate the automatically determined at least one cost-allocation to at least one of the first account associated with the first currently-subscribed mobile device or the second account associated with the second currently-subscribed mobile device.
