My son will be 9 and has asked for a phone. He really wants one so he can text . He would only be texting family members. I don't want to add another phone to our plan now I really think he's too young.

Unless YOU have reason for him to need a phone... he's too young. My son is 8 and wants a phone. He will get one at 11.5 when he starts middle school. Just a cheap flip phone w/ a cheap call and text plan. That is when my kids get a phone because it's the first time they are riding a school bus and the first time they really start to get more freedoms that are inappropriate for younger children.

I will never, ever buy any of my kids an iPhone. Heck.. MY phone is a $30 one from Walmart. lol

He IS way to young. The only time I think (personally) children under 13/14 should have a phone is when they have divorced parents, and the children are often with the other parent, or when they are extremely busy with activities and need to have a way for you to be in touch with them. Phones are expensive, and a luxury. Not a toy.

I agree with Little Miss. He doesn't need a phone. My older children only got phones when they started to get the bus home on their own (not a school bus but public transport).
