April 24, 2009, Newsletter Issue #198: Children's Phones for Kids Only

Tip of the Week

Seeking to capture the only market left to penetrate, cell phone manufacturers are now focusing on children. But do you need to buy your child a $129 Firefly phone? The answer: It depends on your child's age and sophistication level. For children under 12, a children's phone might be a good investment, since you can limit who the child calls, etc. For teenagers, however, a standard cell phone should work and allow you to discuss responsibility with the child.
