If you want him to have that phone, you should download a couple of free game apps. Tell him that they are free because of ads and in-app purchases that he is not allowed to buy. He can still play the basic game without buying anything. I agree with the others, though, that he is too young for that kind of phone. They make child phones that can only call a few preprogrammed numbers. You should look into one of those.

To have a iPhone without an apple ID, is not wise. It is how you can track your phone, back up to iCloud and purchase apps and music. So I see why he is asking.
Take the phone away and give it back at 13 when he is old enough (sort of) to have it. He's 10 what on earth does he need an iPhone for anyway.
This is all very sketchy...is this the same child who got the dresses?

I agree with the others, he doesn't deserve a phone if he is acting like that. A phone is something that is earned, not a right.

He doesn't need an iPhone. If this is the same 10 year old who has all those princess dresses and tutus, then you are spoiling him WAY too much. You are raising an entitled child.

Take away his iPhone 6 immediately. If you need him to have a phone they have $15 flip phones at Walmart.
