At what age did you (or would you) give your child a cell phone? (Please include any contracts or conditions you gave your child with this use)

I have 3 teenagers..19,16 and 15. My oldest daughter got her first cell phone when she got a job. My son got his first cell phone when he got a job. My youngest doesn't have a cell phone and will not have one..only until she gets her first job. We look at having a cellphone, as a child, as a privilege, not a necessity. These cell phone plans are not cheap, so if you want one...then you must work for it, like us adults do. I believe it gives them a sense of accomplishment, to work for what they want. I will not pay for their car payments or car insurance as a teenager...so why should a cell phone be any different.
