I was an adult, if that's the point of asking.

No one under 16 should even have a cell phone, IMO.

You mean no irresponsible kid should have a cellphone, right?

Kind of a silly poll really, considering that any one nowadays can afford one, whereas many many years ago, you had to be almost rich to afford one.
I didn't get one till I was close to 25, and it cost me a fortune just to get it, and the plans were super expensive back then too.
Nowadays a 10 year old kid could afford to buy one with money earned from 1 night of babysitting, or washing someone's car, etc. etc.
