This is kinda of weird of how i got mine, but we were going to go into borders to pick up a book for my dad and in the same shopping center and we parked right in front of the at&t store and i was just saying to my mom lets go in there for fun, she was like okay. So we go in there and she sees a phone she likes and we go wait in line and then the lady presented us with a really good deal and so we went ahead and got it. I know its really weird but it worked for me!
i got one cuz i told them that its easier for me to keep in touch with them when im out with friends. So they dont hav to worry so much cuz they can jus call me. Also if ur responsible they should let u. Cuz i got mine when i was 13 and im the oldest (im now 16) and my brother who is going to be 13 in july...wanted a phone lik the beginning of this past school year(so when he was 12) but my parents wouldnt let him because he isnt responible enough. Which is true because 1 hes a guy and 2 hes jus not responsible lol. Lik he forgets to let the dog out and stuff he gets focused on one thing and doesnt remember to do something lol. But i do agree with the responsiblity thing cuz my friends brother who is 11-12 has a phone and has had one for a while...jus lost his--cuz he put it in the grass or something and forgot about it. But whats the reason ur parents wont let u hav one?

mmm I drive and have had my license for almost a year, i'll be 18 in October... i don't have a cell phone, i offered to buy myself one and pay for it and everything but my parents won't let me... my mom told me i could afford it but i didn't need it... now they are letting me buy my self one next year if i want to after i graduate ( cuz of college and all it just makes sense ).... so i have no idea how to help you... sorry lol but good luck!
i think my parents got me one because they didn't trust me and my friends and they wanted to know what kinda "things" i was doing at all times.. ahah
it's not that great to have one.. i mean.. i thought it was cool at 1st, but now it's just a hassle.. having to charge it everynight and such.. and my parent's get mad at me when i don't leave it on.. so now i kind of wish my parent's didn't make me have one.. but whatever..
but if you're driving.. you definately should have one, incase you get into an accident or something..
i got mine for christmas because i am involved in the marching band and colorgard and i have to call home to get picked up after competitions and shows and because i went on a school trip to disney world just after my 15th birthday and then to Wildwood New Jersey for colorgaurd and they wanted to be able to stay in touch the and at other times....i get my permit next march so i am going to need it then to. It was great for when we were at Wildwood and i wanted to tell my parents that our drumline did really well becuse i ahve roaming and i could call them when ever.
Do you drive yet? Explain to them that this is a way to show them you are responsible buy not losing it, staying with in your min. limits, showing them you'll keep in touch etc. That will be a way to see that you are ready for more privileges. so when you can drive they know your responsible, its worth the try to explain it rather than beg. us logic
You know cell phones are cool and all but parents can call too much and such.The problem is people get so fu**ng annoying with them in my school. Always turning on there dam ringtoned for fun,showing off and they have nextels and those dam BLEEPS annoye me so ooooooo o o o much i mean cant they at least turn it off speaker so i can stop hearing there conversation and them talking loud.
I got one when my brother went to college. good points to bring up are...its easier to get rides. You can tell them where you are. it is good for emergencys. they can usualy get a family plan and add you on for $10. It helps keep in touch. If you are on a sport you can call them instead of having them come up at a certain time, saving them time if you are running late.
well c my sis has one and I I want one to cuz I hang out with my friends a lot. The phone my sis has was supposed to be our FAMILY phone, but she took it with her all the time. Now she is going away to school in the fall and we might get another one...hopefully I will get to keep it with me. Thanks for the advice!!
I have had my phone for like a couple of months and I'm 15, but the only reason i got it was bc i was either always out with friends or i had some softball or basketball games to go to...so thats why i got mine..lol.
