I think there is no particular age to carry mobile phone.But the parents should teach their children not to misuse it.

i think they can we given mobiles and other after they are out of school...kids are bit more responsible by that time and by a bit of monitoring they can be made disciplined on usage also..also it is a sort of necessity for a person after you enter college...

I think it depends upon the child's situation and how responsible they are. You wouldn't want your child constantly losing a cell phone you have to replace or pay out rageous bills because they can't stop txting. My kids don't need one because if they are not in school they are with us or someone we trust. I do see other kids that are younger than mine, that whip out their phones after school and start using them.

There is no set age for a child to carry a mobile, personally i want my daughter to have one as soon as she can use one for her saftey not to call her mates every hour of the day but incase she needs any kind of help. She will know i am there then
