    Exactly----who are we to judge? Its not our money, nor is it our child. Cut and dry.....people waste so much time worrying about others.
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    The original Motorola phone (the absolutely indestructible analog one) was called the Zach Morris phone because back then it was ridiculously expensive yet Zack Morris had one on Saved By The Bell. (It quite possibly could be the very first cell phone ever on TV). I guess the name kinda stuck over the years.

    Speaking of which I found the original Motorola cell phone advertisement on youtube last month. I've lost the link but I'm sure you could find it if you searched. Lol.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~this is a technological age and kids are growing up with every aspect of it. It's only natural to have it be second nature in this day and age. It's great too cause if they know instinctively the tech we use today just imagine what more they'll come up with tomorrow.

    My 8yo killing deer and turkeys puts food in the freezer. A couple deer and three or four turkeys and we have the equivalent of over $400 worth of store bought meat in the freezer. Guns are an investment that you get something back from, either more money in the future or food to eat. Guns and bows can be something that provide as well as entertain. My kid could kill food and provide himself shelter in the event he absolutely needs to because he's been provided with the proper tools and knowledge. Knowing how to text a friend or call Dominos only lasts until the battery goes dead. Then, what do they do? Throw a fit, curl up in the fetal position and cry themself to sleep.

    Like who cares? Its not our money and if a parent wants to waste money on some kid its their problem . Some one will probably take it or he will brake it himself.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!

    My eight year old son always gets our old phones to play with. When we upgrade we keep one phone to throw a Sim card into if something happens and we need a back-up. He gets the previous back-up phone to toy around with. He can't use it for anything except games, period. He wants HIS own phone and these are his reasons.....Call Mommy, Daddy, Nana and Papaw....that's it. He absolutely will not get one and here are MY reasons......He's with me, he's with mommy...and when he is he can use ours to call Nana or Papaw....OR, he's at school. My kid is never away from me other than at school, he has no reason to have a cell phone to call anyone. I have two laptops for home, one for work, a cell phone for work and a blackberry for personal. I don't see any valid reason there can be for a child to a have a cell phone until they are old enough to be away from their parents or a guardian and by themself for an extended period of time. Until he's old enough that I trust him to be safe without me, he doesn't need a phone to carry in his pocket, he can use mine. Seriously, unless he's with a school function he isn't out of my sight...what the h-ll does he need a cell phone for???? Oh, to text me G'nite because I'm too busy to give him a kiss and hug? Or call me from the bathroom because he forgot a towel before he got in the bathtub?? Please, kids and cell phones are a joke. If anyone thinks their pre-teen kid "NEEDS" s a cell phone, save your money and invest it. Give it a few years and you'll be able to afford to buy them the "Blackberry 12995.6 Nuclear that has the self charging reactor and is no more than the size of the average bluetooth headset." It'll be out in about 5 years, so the interest on your $400 investment should at least cover the cost when you sign up for the 18 year plan.

    And please don't argue the maturity level with me either. My son has four guns and has been through hunting and gun safety courses. He uses his guns, not BB guns, real guns to hunt and target shoot with. He's more than mature for his age. He just has no need, as I don't see another child his age having a need, for a phone to carry around that wastes my hard earned money.


    Ohh this was good. Hahaha. The Blackberry Nuclear!!! lol This is true though kids do not need a cell unless there away from family for extended periods or old enough to appreciate the phone. Of course it's the parents decision and some parents feel safer if their kids have a direct way to communicate with them. Others dont mind spending the money for a phone if it's what their kid wants....My daughter is 6 and she will not be getting a phone anytime soon. Definitely not a $400 phone.. but to each his/her own
