I will start by refuting my opponent's arguments.

There. Most of it is either grammatically incorrect, not true, or does not even make sense. It has no relevance to isolating people from the world.

Now my arguments.

For clarification of this debate, I offer one definition.

isolate. - (a person or place) to be or remain alone or apart from others. [1]

It can be inferred that kids are people in infancy, childhood, or adolescence. So a reformed version of the resolution would be: Phones set kids apart from the outside world. How would one hand held device have the power to do that? It is not a cell phone that would stop a child from being able to go to whatever country or state he or she would like to go to. It is not a cell phone that stops people from spending time outside, in the "out side world". A cell phone clearly does not isolate kids from the outside world, nor as my opponent stated any arguments to support this.

[There are only a few more characters remaining therefore I must cut my argument. I await my opponent's response]
