I got my first phone when I was thirteen… it was a teeny tiny flip-phone (flip-phones hadn’t been around for very long, my friends thought I was so cool) and I had to pay for the minutes with my allowance.

I think my kids will be younger when they get their first cellphones. We’re living in a different world than the one we grew up in… I have to remember that my parents bought me my first game system when I was just a little kid, and phones are essentially gaming devices now.
