DD has a little POS nokia that only calls texts. She wants to get something android based, and I'm a little leery. 

Does your kid have a cell phone? What kind?

Zac has like 6 cell phones. None of them work. Haha.

But, my husband and I have agreed to get the boys Fireflies when they go into school. For emergency and safety purposes only.

oh almost forgot.. how old is your DD? i know i have an android phone I have the LG vortex and its supposed to be an android for beginners but at first it was actually hard to understand and it stinks because its touch screen and sometimes the touch can go out on them and then some places wont cover it even though you have insurance and then your out however much you paid for it lol. There is a market on there that you can download applications but if they arent careful they can dowload ones that cost money and be charged to your bill. and most phones like that now are smart phones and you pay an extra $30-$50 a month just to have it connected. I have verizon and i pay an extra $30 on top of mine. which i may be going back to a regular phone because i only text usually so its pretty much a waste. those smart phones are more for people that do email and are online alot lol.

My children won't have cell phones until they are old enough to pay the bill themselves.

does a fake cell phone count?  LOL  We have not even thought of cell phones yet for the little ones.  My oldest is only 9.

my son is 5...all he has is a leapster, and the leapster pen.

He will have a Wii for Yule.. no phone though, he doesn't get one of those until he can pay for it himself.

In my opinion kids don't need a cell phone until at least middle school, that will be a few more years away for my daughter.

As for other technology my oldest has an i-pod nano and a DS.  We are thinking about buying the almost 7 year old his own DS for his birthday or Christmas.  My almost 5 year old doesn't have any high tech toys of her own.
