What age should a child be able to get a cellphone?
The earliest need for a cellphone in my opinion is junior High. I see first grades with them... They don't need it and are not responsible enough for one
I don't think there's a particular age which I'd say is appropriate. It depends on the child, really. There are many factors which I would base my decision on; maturity level, trust, and responsibility are all key traits.
Cheap cellphone, young. Smartphone, older.
