I felt like we were so ahead of the time in High School. I remember the age everyone seemed to be getting a cell phone was 16-18. That seemed so young to me at the time, but I felt like it was fair. I got my first cell phone when I was 16 -- my parents wanted me to have access to it in emergency situations now that I had started driving. I ended up in a horrible accident five months after I got my license, I guess that phone came in handy.
Now it's totally different, who DOESN'T have a cell phone? I have many friends who are teachers who say a majority of their fourth graders, even some second graders have cell phones. One even has an iPhone. REALLY?
This is where TracFone's are great I think. There are many young kids that I think it is safe for them to have phones. Think about the summer, when your kids are home and out and about. It's nice to be able to have access to them and keep track of where they are. You have access to great smart phones with TracFone, or even a simple feature phone that just does the basics. There are simple phones for the simple needs with calling and texting capabilities for under $10.00. There are also great phones packed with so many features like camera/video recorder, web access, app capabilities, mp3 player, and full QWERTY keyboard, for $29.99! With a TracFone you get great coverage and reception and it's easier to monitor your child's usage. You easily can pay online as you need the minutes or you can buy cards to reload the phone at many retailers. It's quick and easy with no contracts, no credit checks, no activation or cancelation. So maybe you only want your child to have the phone in the summer? Perfect! No surprises from the phone company.
Here are some great monthly plan features:
-Pay as you go online or with a card that can be purchased at retailers everywhere.
-1 year service cards give you so much more. You get double the minutes for the life of your TracFone, and 800 minutes, for only $119.
-"Double Minutes for the Life of Your Phone" is a feature that you can purchase separately for $19.99 but some phones already include it.
-Choose monthly plans with 200 minutes for under $30, or 50 minutes for $9.99.
Some International Long Distance Features:
