    That's not trust, they just didn't care about you.

    You're an awful troll. My mom dedicated her life to her children. She trusted I would be safe and call her for rides even at 2am on weeknights when she had to work the next mourning. She was at my school multiple times a week arguing with the staff to get me graduated early. She cared more than any other parents I've seen. She treated me like an adult from 14 on and it worked just fine. And like I said, her and I have had a better relationship for it. Probably better than the nazi parents and their kids.

    My brother got his droid when he was 14. I got mine about 18. Personally I don't think it's necessary to have a smartphone sometimes I wish I didn't have a phone at all just because of some annoying people.
    I'd let my kid have one. Hell if it was better then mine or figured out that it runs alot another then mine I'd take his phone and give him mine haha. I can't say kids will be kids cause well I still consider myself somewhat of a kid but it's only true. You can't expect your kid to break your rules one way or another. you got to think about you when you were a kid I'm pretty sure most of you didn't play exactly by your parents rules just think of it in their shoes. I'd say make rules but don't over do it and restrict them of every little thing cause in the end it'll probably make them be more rebellious once they get older. Just my .02

    Thanks for the support you guys, didn't want to start a big stink but its interesting seeing everyones opinions. The reason I have this Droid Bionic signature is because its sort of a little "joke" I've seen, a few people might believe and freak out, but I really have a Droid 2 that's rooted and rommed :3

    You can change your taptalk settings in your phone if you have the droidforums app.

    This is how I see it as a 40 year old. Smart phone are just mini computers that also makes phone call. I can see the benefits of have one from both sides of the fence. For the kid its a slice of entertainment, responsibility and freedom. A chance to start growing up. For the parent it can also be a great tool. Such and having the ability to instantly locate a child on a map and keeping in contact with the child. How many parents with missing children wish they had some form of a gps tracker on their child?

    Lol, its never safe to assume anything. Couldn't be more wrong.

    They bought their cars and pay the insurance. I pay the phone bill and other things in return for a proper gpa.

    Promote spoils for success, not consequences for failure.

    Here's the deal, the average 15 does not NEED a smartphone. I don't need one either, but just like some people are into cars, or motorcycles, or videogames. Im into phones, that's just something im interested in and enjoy.
