I think it depends on the phone and the reason. If you have a child that needs to have a form of communication there is nothing wrong having a non smart phone with a pay as you go sim. But I would say any sort of smartphone needs usage restrictions and screen time limitations. I don’t think my boys will get phones or whatever is around when they grow up until about 11 or 12.
