For her 9th birthday, Jeff's daughter Amelia got a cell phone.

Which begs the questions, what is the best, or most appropriate age, for a child to get their first cell phone?  Should it be based on the child's age or their maturity level?

Miles in the Morning tried to find the answer, and heard ages randing from 6 to 16!

What say you?
