This is funny that this article recently pop up when a 9yr old WHO ASK my bout how much is a iPhone 4 cost earlier this aftertoon, and i was like thinking to myself like WTF U NEED A PHONE for kid. Then her mother ask me how much is the plan for Verizon. First I told her i wouldn't even get a phone for her daughter because 1 it's EXPENSIVE 2 It's FRAGILE & BREAK EASILY any kid have iphone will break it 3 WHY NEED A PHONE FOR? you're not calling anyone at all. 4 LOTS OF iTHIEFS out there. 5 a friend will probably steal her phone the day she got it. I recomend get a iPod touch same thing but no call feature but saying ipod touch broke exactly as i thought and told her just buy her another ipod touch don't buy the phone when the parent have to buy one and pay over 80-90$ a month phone bill. Kids these days man i'm telling
