You must read whatever Financing Agreement you made with them, and you might offer the surrender of the Collateral to them.

Sounds like there is some family dynamic issues going on that you should discuss with your mom. Aside from that, your mom is well within her right to take the phone away. Her house, her rules. If you are 18, or something like this happens after you turn 18, you could take the phone, leave, and find your own place to live.
