    Im 13 and is very useful for all the apps it haves and you can put restrictions to what apps he or she can download.

  • an iPhone for a 13 yr old is an excellent idea. at 13/14 our kids are starting high school and will want to have more liberty to hang out with friends and go out alone, which normally is really scary but is a lot easier to get used to knowing you can contact them. although you may be thinking, well, why not any old phone, you need to consider that an iPhone is something the kids really want and not "moms old phone" or a "dumb phone" . the kids will be a lot happier to answer their iPhone than their ancient cellular phone, because it's something they can be proud of. especially if it comes with strings attached that they have to work for it a bit...

  • It all depends. 1. If you personally want to. 2. How careful he/she will be. If he/she is a bit careless, you may want to watch out, a $200 phone will not be replaced for free when damage is caused by he/she. If he/she drops the phone and cracks the screen, your payment for repair will range anywhere from $50 to $200 (depending on which gb, can go from $50-300 for 32gb or $50-$400 for 64gb).
