Choosing a Kid-Friendly Cell Phone

Dec 15, 2014 03:51AM ● Published by Family Features

From connecting with friends to playing interactive games, a mobile device presents endless entertainment to kids of every age. With children getting their first cell phone at a younger age than ever before, it’s important to make sure they stay safe by investing in a kid-friendly phone and keeping tabs on their activity. From ensuring there is fun content to using new applications which limit their exposure to undesirable content, there are many considerations to take into account when purchasing a phone for your child.

As you begin researching options, consider this advice from the experts at TracFone Wireless.

Durability. When it comes to kids, durability is key. Look for phones that can stand up to daily use and invest in protection (such as covers and screen protectors) to save it from drops or spills. Add a few simple investments and save big on repair or replacement costs down the line.

Security. Look for a device that creates a safe smartphone experience for your child as well as monitor their usage. The LG Optimus Fuel Android smartphone from TracFone comes with a one year free trial of the NQ Family Guardian parental control app, which allows you to monitor and manage your child’s activities, locations and phone usage. Plus, it comes with access to special SpongeBob SquarePants content such as wallpapers and videos, so kids can have fun while still being safe.

Entertainment. Make sure the phone has the capability to download apps that provide plenty of quality entertainment.  From games that inspire kids to draw pictures to puzzles and word games, your child will love the excitement at their fingertips.  

Affordability. Seek a pre-paid or pay-as-you go plan so you can manage the data your kids use, set limits on costs and avoid hidden fees that come with contract plans. TracFone is one of the largest no-contract cellphone service providers in the United States and offers nationwide coverage on all plans. TracFone has a variety of affordable plans to choose from, with 90-day plans including talk, text and data starting as low as $19.99.
