    Ok, so I waited in line July 11 at 3 AM for one and didn't get it. So I ordered one off eBay for $630, without contract, which saves money by using your current sim instead of paying $80+per month. It's my iPhone 3G, not my parents. And I got the 3G for my 13th birthday.

    I'm not some dumb little brat that knows nothing about Apple or 3G and just wants some "cool new stuff", I know as much about this phone as everyone here, which is why I'm on this site in the first place.

    So the real question: I just turned 13, am I too young to be an iPhone 3G owner?

    Ps I'm typing this from my iPhone

    Yes.
    i think you're to young to even have a phone.
    what you're in grade 8?

    If you were typing this from your iPhone wouldn't it show a couple lines at the top saying 'Apple webkit blah blah iPhone 2.0 blah.." ?

    And no, you aren't too young but this thread is useless.

    Only if he used the mobile version of the forums, he's browsing the regular version (same as us) on his iPhone. ;)

    A better question is why you care what other people think?

    what do you want people to say?

    i mean whoever buys an item for themself wants it.

    granted, i disagree when parents buy their kids really nice things but you know what, none of my buisiness.

    at any rate, congrats as its a cool gadget, one i couldnt afford myself at the moment (just got a lg voyager today)

    I've seen posts like this on a car forum I visit and it's usually some young kid trying to brag that he has the same 'luxury item' that is ordinarily owned by successful adults.

    To answer the OP's question...You're not too young if you are solely responsible for your purchase and contract and it doesn't interfere with what a normal 13-year-old should be doing (IMO). Since I don't believe it can be all those things, I'm going to say "Yes, you're too young for a cell phone, especially one this capable."

    What's the point of this thread exactly?

    Are you young to have an iPhone? Yes. Too young? Depends on how you treat your things and your/your family's finances.

    I wouldn't have been too young at 13, but my brother would have been. We were very different at 13. ;)

    Enjoy your phone.


    BTW, I don't think you're too young for a cell phone in general. Times have changed, and I would have one if I were your age. Whether I could talk my mother into allowing me an iPhone is a different matter, but cell phones nowadays are definitely a safety tool.

    Well I'm sure Apple, AT&T nor the dood that sold it to you on EBAY don't think you're too young.

    But why even ask? Seem like an odd question.

    Good Advice



    I wouldnt say young I would say Spoiled, Precocious, Delusion, and probably a loner. Plus it doesnt make you cool to us cuz u have a "3G" (It's In Mommies Name). U Have nothing to prove. Get offline b4 ur the 40 Year Old Virgin.

    Thats the best advice youve ever got. ;)

    I am responsible for this purchase and contract since I use my previous sim card and contract. And I'm just gonna go out on a limb and say a normal 13 yo would be doing: schoolwork and socialization.

    I bought it with my own money, how does it makes me a spoiled loner? I never said I got it to be "cool". So you know how to use a thesaurus, congrats.
