You are old enough when you can pay for both the phone and the service.

I believe you should be about 14 years old to get a phone. This is because you will be at an age you can handle the responsibilities that come with a phone, as long as you follow what your parents say. However, your parents should be the ones to decide what is best for you and get you a phone when they think it is appropriate. Having a phone comes with responsibility and you should flow the rules your parents give you.

Depends on maturely. If they are mature about 12 or 13 but if they are not responsible about 15 or even 16

I like the phones that only allow 4 numbers of your choice,and preprogrammed emergency numbers for children under 10yrs old. Now from 11 to 15 i think a tracfone or gophones are perfect. I never had a cellphone until I was in junior year of high school and.it was a limited minute a phone and it was good for me.

I agree, 13 or 14, is when the kids leave the house without parental supervision. Before then it's just unnecessary.

you can get a phone at whatever age, it just depends how responsible the person getting the phone might be. So it's all a matter of responsibility
