  • I'd get my daughter a cell phone at that age.. but an iphone? Nope, probably not. I remember how careless I was at that age with my stuff and that's alot of money going down the drain if it gets lost, left somewhere, dropped, or something else. Plus the data plans on those things raise your bill quite a bit.. especially after adding your text packages and all that jazz...

  • LOL! Never as long as I am paying the bills! Mine are 26 and 22 and I pay for them to have basic cell phone service, no internet useage at all. So, like I tell them, if you want more, get your own plan!

  • When she can pay for it herself! Those things are way too expensive to just be giving one to a teenager, in my opinion If she wants a cell phone before then, it's going to be a simple one just to be able to make calls with. But maybe I'm just a mean mommy like that.
