Dd is in year 6 and we have said she can have a phone when she goes into secondary school. Does anyone have any tips or info about the best way to set this up to minimise (a) cost (b) risk of phone being nicked on the bus. We would no way buy an expensive phone but what sort of cost is the cheapest? All info welcome. Thanks.
Hi, I too would be interested in hearing your thoughts on the best mobile options. DD currently has one of my VERY old Nokias (it's prehistoric ) and has done fine with it, she has asked for a new phone for Christmas and I am happy to get her one, especially as she is off to secondary school in sept and would use it more. She has mentioned a blackberry and a Samsung galaxy? She would like a phone with a qwerty keyboard. I am most unsure if it would be best to get a pay as you go phone or a contract. I don't know if these phones are any good anyway as I only have eyes for my iPhone !! Any thoughts would be appreciated
Me and Dp have just got a phone through talk mobile its the online part of carphone warehaouse. For £7.50 a month we got a new samsung galaxy ace phone 250mins talktime 5000 text and 500mb of data which i think is a good deal and ideal for youngsters.
My dtds both have a £6 month contract which gives them 100mins and unlimited texts. I think tbh that works out cheaper than it would PAYG and I have the reassurance that they will never be out of credit.
Tesco mobile uses the o2 network so v good coverage.
