[citation][nom]teh_chem[/nom]So much yawn.I'm still dumbfounded why parents think their kids need smartphones. Much less a cell phone at all.[/citation]

At least give them a basic phone for emergency contact. I've lived without text messaging, my Cingular flip-phone is about a decade old now.

Agreed, I could get on board with a simple pre-paid phone for emergencies (either an emergency at home to contact the child, or an emergency with the child so they can contact home). But what makes no sense to me is a kid needing a smartphone.

Then again, I guess a kid doesn't "need" a video game console, or much of anything else.,,
