  • What age do u think is an appropiate age for a cell phone? I was thinking middle school when they.start going to after school activies and hanging out. Like 13 yrs old or something

  • y son has an emergency firefly phone, no games, only 5 numbers he can dial and nothing fancy. We are military and it is important for communication, BUT it is never to be used unless he NEEDS it or is told to use it.... He is 8...BUT that kind of phone for a 6 YO is insane, for a regular phone I think 12 or 13 is appropriate
