  • Yes. 3 and 5. They've known how to use the iPhone since they were 2 and on occasion it has been a lifesaver during long waits. I have several pbs and Disney apps that they know how to access. But they prefer the iPad - I think due to the bigger screen.

  • Not anymore. They're 10 and 7. I used to have several games that I'd let them play. I removed them when the kids would beg and beg and beg to play a game on my phone WHILE I was talking on it to someone.

    It's taken a while, but they have finally stopped begging to play on my phone.

  • Yes, he's 2
    I have a Ballistic case so my phone is more protected from damage than the Pad.
