i personally never would give a smart phone to any kid.. If they want a smart phone they can get a job and pay the bill.. If I approve it... but that just me..

I think 5 is too young. When my daughters were 13 and 12, we got them their first cell phones for Christmas. The wife and I wrapped them and put them under the tree. Christmas morning I slipped off and called one of them. They jumped up and started screaming! Good times!
And at five? Not a snowballs chance. I wouldn't even consider it until 15. Maybe one of those child phones that make only emergency calls and can't call out.
There's always a chance, Doctor, as long as one can think.
