Yup! that is what mine is getting for easter :)

He goes to friends alot and always has to borrow his older brother's so I decided it is time for him to get one. 

It isn't nothing fancy.. Just a tracfone with triple minutes.. The phone itself was only $29. :) I only spend $20 every three months on my other son's so for that price I decided it was time for the younger one to get one.. 

What do you think cell phones for kids.. ?

I think it's fine as long as they don't have access to Internet.

My kids don't have them or need them, yet. My oldest is 7.

I work in the industry..

So I'm on board.  It's a heck of a lot more convienent for me.. and I pay close to nothing.

I don't think anything about it really. lol My boys have no reason to have one right now so I don't plan on buying them one, but I'm not necessarily against it with certain restrictions either.

My 10 year old just convinced me she needs a cell phone. I am giving her one of my old ones that is a prepaid. Nothing fancy, no internet. She will only take it when she goes to after school activities, down the street to her friends, or over to her great grandparents house to go to church (in case of emergencies).

My 12 year old got one for his birthday this past October. He rarely if ever uses it. Although my best friend text me earlier saying he was sending her pictures of our dogs. lol.

 My 10 year old got a Galaxy III for Christmas from grandma. I'm glad she has it, especially when we go into the city. If she were to get separated from me, she could call. Just gives me peace of mind. There are so many weirdos running around. She's had a cell since she was 8 1/2.
