    every parent does what they can thats best for their child. if they feel their child is ready for an iphone, let them get one. it is not up to you to tell parents when/how they can get their child a phone.

    My parents got me a regular phone – only text and call. This way I can’t play games but still call them if they’re away, and text them in emergencys.

    Listen to the message.

    Most anash these days have Internet in there home, yet when our kids grow up, we send our kids to yeshivos where Internet is forbidden. %80 of the bochurim yeshiva get access to the Internet either way. The message is unclear. Rosh yeshivos need to learn about technology, yeshivos should embrace computers and technology and should teach there students how to use it in a kosher way. – But rosh yeshivos and mashpim these days are living in a different world so this will never happen.
