Default DO YOU THINK THIS IS RIDICULOUS? ~What My Daddy Said About Getting a Cell Phone~

Okay, so my Daddy promised I could get a cell phone if I got straight A's on my report card. I know that I'm getting A's in most of my classes and have no doubt that I can bring up everything if I try. :]
But, Daddy said I might not be allowed because he saw on the news that people who talk on cell phone has an 18% higher risk of getting Brain Cancer. He hasn't decided-he said he has to "research" it more.
I'm not saying that's wrong, and I'm not saying a phone is more important that one's health, but, I'm kinda just saying, "OF CORSE! As soon as I'm allowed to get one, they cause cancer!"

So, I ask, do you think I should forget the phone because of a health issue? Or do you think that it would be ridiculously unfair for my dad to take something away from me that I have wanted for 2 years, got my hopes up for, worked like crazy top get good grades and just have it taken away?

P.S. You guys have been saying "Just don't use it too much.". I won't! I'm a teen girl and, what do we do? WE TEXTTEXTTEXT!! My DAD, however, has his BlackBerry pressed to his ear 24/7.
It kinda bothers me that he said this but even admitted that "If there's anyone at high risk in this house, it's me."
So....I'm just saying....

I think it's a little unfair that he broke his promise, but it's good that he wants to prevent you from getting brain cancer. Plus, I think that 18% thing is exaggerated a little. And think of the millions of people that use cell phones on a daily basis. I don't think that thing on the news was a big deal.

Probably the wiring or batteries or magnetic things in it or something affect your brain.

Really? Brain cancer? THat IS crazy. But your dad is trying to protect you because he loves you. I had a cell last year, but then my sister took it, and left it in her pocket when my Mom did the wash, and it was adios Cell phone

Your dad does have a good point, but it's not really fair to go back on his word after saying you could get one.

I heard that too, but seriously, that's no reason not to get a phone! (I, too, want one very badly. XD)

Get the phone, it hasn't been proven yet, and if/when it is, you can always use the home phone to talk on and use your cell to text.[x
