I just posted about kids and cell phones here http://mftawk.today.com/2009/03/29/what-is-the-appropriate-age-for-... My son has one that hubby gave him from work but he doesn't currently have minutes because I think he is still too young. I want to be able to contact my kids when they get older and are away from home si I definitely think they will both eventually have one. Probably by the time they are 10 with strict limitations.
I blogged about 5 tips I use to manage my daughters cell phone usage here. http://ahappyhippymom.blogspot.com/2009/03/5-tips-on-how-to-manage-... Most are common sense but they work!
We purchased a cell phone for my then eight-year-old just over two years ago. We've developed a pretty solid system via trial and error over those years, let me tell you. :) My post is at http://www.theonlythingiknow.com/cellphones
I just posted about keeping the cell phone bill down with a few tips. Hope this helps..we'd love to win one. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.It's a lot of common sense ones but it really works like keeping a timer for when she uses the cell phone, and the times she's allowed to use it. They all work together and it helps big time!

Here is my blog post : http://theplussizemommy.com/blog/?p=206

I have a 12 year old and my best advice for getting kids a cell phone are to plan it all out, set the rules up beforehand, and stick to them. Make sure your child is mature and responsible before letting them get a cell phone.
