Open Thread - Kids and Cell Phones

My son (14) has been carrying this grudge lately because he is one of the few that doesn't have a phone in his back pocket. My wife and I are torn on the subject. He is definitely not one of the "cool kids" that can isolate themselves and watch video games and porn all day or lend it out to his little sister to set up Tinder accounts, or take nude selfies and accidentally send it to the wrong address. But, there is still a legitimate use for them. Whenever he gets home from his cross-country meets, it would be nice if he could just call. What think ye?

Right now, my wife has a dumb phone that does text but nothing else, we let him borrow when he needs it.
