Treo 650 For Kids
No offense to your kids personally. But most phones these days have a little calendar in them and can do text messaging and ringers and take pictures and all the cool stuff that teens want. In more colors too. I'd say stick to midrange phones.

I have a Treo 650 and my son who is 13 wants one. I think it's a great idea. It can help them organize their activities and makes text messaging a snap. My son has the $2.99 300 messages plan; and if you dont want them to surf the web, you can disable that for free by calling your provider. The Treo is easy to use I dont think the person who replied before me ever even had one! My son has had a cell since he was 10 and has never harmed one in anyway, nor has he ever lost one. And now most of his friends who are also 13 have one too.
It's all about the maturity level.
i think if they can actually use it for what it's meant to be used for, it's a great idea. i had a palm when i was a kid, and only used it for games. today, the organizational qualities are invaluable to me.
