Maybe your parents will consider getting you a phone where you buy minutes to try out for the first time and if you show how responsible you are with that then maybe you will get a better one,I wish you luck and happy birthday.

This is my theory: If you are able to use the internet like you are doing now, you should be able to manage a cell phone. 

However, a cell phone requires much more responsibility.  Managing your minutes, texts, & possibly data is a huge deal. 

This is what I would do:
Cut a deal with them.  Show them that you mean business and draw out a proposal.  Tell them that you will give them a weekly report of your cell phone usage in minutes & text. 
Also, make a specific date in the future.  IE your birthday.  Don't be greedy, meaning don;t aim for the best phone because it IS your first, right?  Tell them you will agree on any phone they get you.

You are too young to have a cell phone. I was 16 years old when my parents got me a cell phone. And that was only because I was going far away out of town because of uil and debate. So you are really too young to have a phone. I think that people should at least be 15 before they get a phone.
