6 Cool & Budget-Friendly Ways Your Teens Can Personalize Their Cellphones

cell phone casesSo your teen has a cellphone. Maybe you love it and maybe you hate it. For one: It's always ringing, or buzzing, or playing some stupid, Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy ... ringtone. Or maybe they've taken to texting you to pass the butter at the dinner table instead of asking. The horror!

I'm sure, though, that part of the reason you bought said cellphone was not only to keep tabs in touch, but also to teach your teen to be responsible for his/her belongings. Umm, mom and dad ... do you really think your kid is worried about learning a thing or two about responsibility? Nnnootttt. The first thought that popped into their head was how they're going to personalize every inch of their brand spankin' new gadget. And well, if you can't beat 'em, might as well join 'em, right? Here are a few tips that'll turn decorating and bedazzling your teen's cellphone into a fun treat for the whole family!

Will you let your kids personalize their cellphones?

I have a son and he's not so much into blinging his phone.

I think we will allow them to do some things with theirs when they're old enough to have one. Right now they use our old ones to play games on and listen music.

I have a son who is way too young for a cell phone but he probably wouldn't have much interest in decorating his phone, if he did have one.

Looks like some fun ideas.  Mine are still too young for a phone, though.
