Hilary Duff is desperate to turn 18 because she will finally be able to buy her own mobile phones.

While the CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN star has been able to treat herself to homes and cars, she can't yet get herself a mobile phone because she won't have credit until she welcomes in her landmark birthday on 28 September (05).

She says, "I'll be excited to be able to buy my own cell phone. I tried to go and buy a cell phone the other day, because mine broke. I got everything done and I was getting a new service and everything.

"And you know how long it takes in those stupid phone stores. It is the biggest hassle in the world. I waited forever and ever and I was busy, on a schedule trying to get this phone.

"Then I put my credit card down and he was like, 'You have no credit, you cannot buy this cell phone.' I was like, 'What? Oh my God! Are you kidding me?' He said I had no credit I almost freaked out. I called my mom, I was like, 'Mommy I have no credit! What happened?' I didn't know what had happened but I was really scared."
