Last time I checked the constitution, the right to have a cell-phone, especially a free one, was not actually included.
Getting so hysterical over a mere delay in an upgrade to an already new phone, is alarmingly over-emotional. Something more is at play here than just a phone. If does sound unduly childish.
You mention an "older" sister of 13, so I assume he is under 13 years of age.
Personally, I believe that there is value in a child having a bare-bones cellphone for emergencies, and no value whatever in getting one with all the bells and whistles.
You seem to relate this as part of a broader pattern of acting spoilt and expecting to get verything he wants, and instantly, too.
Maybe a joint session with a child psychologist would help, to assess him, and to dvise you and your husband on how to set rules and expectations to avoid such spoiled behaviour in future
