    Personally to each is own. You seem like an intelligent young man. (I am one myself) Congrats. On your independance from your peers by choosing the BB. Don't get caught in the SideKick world. LOL.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I feel as technology keeps leaping forward. Why should we not extend this to our children? If we deprive them of it, they will be left out of the loop. And science has proven, that younger people learn this stuff way faster than us older geezers. Also, with early exposure and mastery, they more than likely will go on to better paying jobs due to it.

    To deny someone the advantages of technology due to there age, makes no sense to me.
    I say let them have it. But monitor closely to protect them from predators and teach them to use it wisely.

    Re: Blackberry For Teens

    Having a BB at 15 wow...thats mighty grown up ! LOL

    I agree with ya'll.....
    Seriously, the way technology is, kids are already knowledgeable....remember they are our future.....

    Heck, they are textin' like no tomorrow...I see no difference if it were a sidekick (eck!) or a BB....

    Additionally, the way the world has been as of late, fear of terrorist attacts, etc, any way possible my kid can get in contact with me, and vice versa I am all for it....

    what do you think of a 15 year old with a blackberry?
    I think its great cause most 15 yr olds have Sidekicks and I am anit-kick- LOL

    Re: Blackberry For Teens

    I think the only thing you have to watch with cellphones/BBs with kids is maturity level. When I was considering adding a second line to my account for my now 8 year old son, I had to ask myself, "Is he gonna lose it at school??" and, "Is somebody gonna steal it out of his bag?", etc. I did end up getting him a phone (not a BB though) when my Mom took him on a cross-states vacation a couple of summers ago. He was barely 7 then. It was a good way to keep in touch with him while he was gone. He also is gone every other weekend with his Dad and takes it with him then. My daughter, however, won't be ready for one until she is about 16. She would use up the minutes quickly!

    Re: Blackberry For Teens

    So are cellphones for teens a communication device or an electronic leash? Do you (in general no one take offense please) actually know where the kids are going before they call you or is that how people find out WHERE their children are?

    Re: Blackberry For Teens

    I think it all depends on the person...there are some 15 year olds who are more mature and responsible than some 20 year olds. If you have a need for it and obviously are taking good care of it I don't see that it matters what age you are. Glad you are enjoying the site. Hope you can find some other outstanding teens to chat with...until then chat with us old fogeys

    Re: Blackberry For Teens

    I think most people under the age of 18 might even know how to work a BB better than the rest of that. Age isn't a issue, end of story...

    Re: Blackberry For Teens

    As I said before, I wish I'd had a BlackBerry when I was under 18. I was using computers for the first time (although it was in school only) at the age of 9 so I was already a typist before I graduated from high school (I still took a year of typing, bought a typewriter, trashed it, and got my first PC and was online by 18).

    My organizational skills are horrible (thanks to a learning disability) so I need the organization that BlackBerry gives me. Day planners and schedule books did absolutely nothing but make the problems worse cause I used them then stopped (they were boring) LOL

    Re: Blackberry For Teens

    I think it is normal for a kid to have a cellphone but not if it's only to impress their friends I sell cellphone for a living and my kids won't have other than pay as you go until 18 or until they could afford it by themself. This is the way I was raised and that will be the way my children will be too
