    im a teenager.. (if you couldnt tell all ready) I am a PROUD owner of a pre. the pre's good point in not creating games is that its a smartphone not a gamephone.. so how old do u think you should be to own a pre.. the reason i think of this is i had an issue and when i went to the sprint store to show them they seemed shock to see someone so young with it.. any thoughts?

    As long as you can hold the phone, use it and pay the bill, I don't think age matters.

    I should have been more clear. I should have said As long as you have a bill that's going to be paid every month. If you find a use for the extra functions over a dumb phone then of course you should buy one.

    Typically Palm has geared more toward the business man because of their superb calendar apps (not the Pre as of yet), so for a college kid (who doesn't have that many meeting and such) it's a bit different.

    Though I think Palm is venturing further from it's business oriented roots and trying to go mainstream.

    lol yeah im 15 with a part time job and i have one, me and my 18 year old sister pay 25 bucks a month to our parents to make the bill more affordable for them( not the most wealthy people in the world) but 25 bucks is not that much if you think about it only like 6 bucks a week

    I've said this before about other things (video game ratings) and I'll say it again: It's not age that matters. It is maturity. I am 14, and yet I have often found that I am more mature than some "adults" on other forums. If you're mature enough to use a Pre responsibly and pay the bill, then why shouldn't you have a Pre, regardless of whether you're 13 or 19 or 25?


    Edit: I use my Pre for development, and will have my first (simple) app done soon. Take that as you will.

    Hey I'm only 28, but yeah I paid for my first cell phone bill myself at 18. I dont' see much of a problem with parents helping their kids with these type of bills especially if they're focusing on school and getting good results.

    i mean i dont pay for my bill. im 15 years old.. i thought i'd be the youngest one to own a pre.. now at this point i cant say that if i WAS with ATT i wouldnt take the iphone for the games and apps.. i am a teenager.. but i much rather prefer sprint.

    Your age is irrelevant, any sales people who seem shocked are flattering you or should be fired. Savvy youth are likely to dig WebOS and the platform's hackability in general.

    I offered my 15 yo son the option of paying $200 for a Pre and we would pay the add'l $20/mo on the family plan. Instead, he bought some kind of WinMo thing off e-bay.

    He is dead to me.

    Hmmm age to own pre??? Considering children are learning @ an alarming rate these days, I am not sure 10 or even younger would really be alarming lol!

    My only concern would be from a parent's perspective (w/ no children, lol) would they be able to monitor use or the extremely large amount of connectivity/exposure the child could have to, well, everything! The pre can connect you to everything you can think to ask (just about), not sure I'd be comfy that as a parent.

    But @ 26, I am kinda ol' school minded and a little over protective . So i'd say if you are old enough to pay the bill or @ least understand the responsibility... then hope you like your pre as much as I like mine!

    ...All you had said at this point is 3 words, how were we supposed to tell already? Also, no offense, but myself being 19 years old who has friends ranging from ages 16-20 years old, I can safely say that you do not type at a teenager level. If the Sprint people were surprised by your youth, you're probably younger than what most people consider a "teenager."

    I think you underestimate the adverse effects that "txt speak" have had on our generation's definition of appropriate typing.

    The same thing happened 10-12 years ago when "regular" cell phones became the norm. Everyone was thinking: "Do all these kids really need a cell phone?".

    Its the same with smartphones. Initially, only people that actually needed smartphones carried them (much less teenagers). It'll be commonplace soon.

    I hate to say it, but I definitely wouldn't be paying my kids bill for a Pre though.

    When you get there, you will find that senility doesn't set in until a bit later than that.
