A good age for a cell phone

I bought my 11 year old daughter a standard little flip phone recently because she just started catching buses home from school and I wanted her to be able to contact me if needed. It is a prepaid phone and I put $30 credit on it that will last 6 months. That's all she needs. I also check it regularly to ensure any messaging she does is appropriate. Kids this age do NOT need smart phones. In fact, my daughter will not have a smart phone until she is old enough to have a job and pay for it herself. She is also not allowed to have it in her room - I monitor her social interactions because children this age are still developing social skills and need our guidance and supervision.
