How can I convince my mom to let me get a cell phone?

Everyone else in my grade has one and i don't. Its really embarrassing telling people i don't have one because their reaction is something like this: WHAT?! YOUR 13 AND DON'T HAVE A PHONE?!!! Omg that's ridiculous, You should get one. I also dont like asking people to let me borrow their phone because its just awkward, and my friends who i have borrowed their phones like 10 times get annoyed too because they have minutes too and things like that. Oh and I've tried EVERYTHING for me to get a phone. Any ideas? I want one for my birthday. One more thing if your a parent why wouldn't allow your 13 year old to get a phone? Thanks for any answers.

On your christmas list put *car *gauges *tattoo *liposuction *implants *tanning bed then at the very bottom put cell phone. The reason is she wont get you any of the above because there illegal or disgusting and phones are cheap and not painful! :D if that doesnt work.. sorry.. D:

My friends and i were at this pride thing for my town and my town is really small. So i saw EVERYONE from my school. I gave one of my friends numbers to her(moms number), however i wondered off with my other friend. She called the friend with her number 16 times, and was freaking out, but i still dont have a phone after this incident.

Lets look at the could be's: only so much income, cost of food went up, price of gas, housing! Maybe your parents just can't afford buying you one right now! So maybe it is time to ask for something more realistic!
