    I have an Optimus S, but going to another phone. So, what do do with the one I have? I have a son who is very tech advanced (almost too much, and he's only 6), Can I still use it as a Wifi Device for my son, so that he can play games and go online with the phone without actually using it as a phone?

    Yes, I would put it in airplane mode and then manually turn on WiFi so he doesn't accidentally call 911. It is also a good idea to pin lock purchases and in app purchases in the Play store. It is under settings. In there you can also set a content rating for apps in the Play market, which is also a good idea.

    My 5 year old ran my retired D2 for a long time until I gave it away. Now he has his own Nexus 7.

    Could I just create him own gmail account that has no credit card attached to it, so that he could only download the free stuff.

    You could, I did that with my son (the email address part) BT I already purchased dozens of apps for him to play and wanted him to still have those, so he uses it under my account.

    When I was six, my dad got me an Etch-a-Sketch and a box of Lincoln Logs. I was bamboozled.

    So if a generation of child Etch-a-Sketchers lead to a generation of child Androiders, what the hell will the next generation get for their sixth birthday?

    Completely believable and practically predictable. I think the Borg showed us something that we
