The youngest ive seen is 7 years old im 13 i paid for my own Flip Phone everyone makes fun of me for having one but i dont mind i wish i lived back in the 60's I listen to Frank Sinatra and other jazz music
My 8 yr old nephew just got an iPhone 5s. He handles it better than I do. Set his fingerprints himself.
Sent from from my iPhone 5
My youngest son has my old iPhone 5, and he is way more responsible with it than his older siblings were when they got their first phones, and they received theirs at an older age. Like me, his iPhone is always with him...
We gave my 9 year old daughter one of our old iPhone 4's. She uses it like an iPod though. No phone service until they are at least 12. That's when I got my oldest a phone and that was a flip phone. I see kids with iPhone all the time but I don't know if they have them activated or are using them like an iPod.
Mine is 8 years old. He had a deactivated 4s for songs, Netflix and FaceTime with Grandma but was super disappointed. When my friend gave back the 5 I lent them, I gave that to him.....he doesn't use it much but it's cheaper than buying him a tablet since it was used. I use the 4s as an iPod and I have a 6sa
My 9yo and 5yo both have the 5c which are mine and my partners old devices.
They have no phone service or Safari/Imessage/iTunes etc but they are set up to FaceTime with grandparents and me when I'm working late and they want to say good night.
Both have Pokmon Go installed so as a family we can get out the house and go for a healthy walk whilst giving them something to help not get bored. Each device connects to a personal hotspot set up on my 6s.
Both of them also have iPads which are purely used for education and road trips.
The 5yo has especially benefited from this and his writing and reading skills improved drastically when I got it for him.
They'll have to use technology when they are older... why not embrace it now
