I was about 13 years old when I got my first cell phone. My parents got it for me so I could stay in touch with them when I was out with my friends. It was a basic flip phone and I only used it to call and text. A few years later, I got my first smartphone. I was in high school and all my friends had them, so I begged my parents to get me one. I got an iPhone and I was instantly addicted to all the apps and games. I've had a smartphone ever since and can't imagine going back to a basic phone.
