Default Safe Smart Phones for Kids!!!

I found this awesome phone for kids!!!!!!

https://gabbwireless.com/

Unlimited Text and talk
No picture messaging!!!!
No group messaging
Has a camera but must be offloaded onto a computer
No data or wifi capabilities
No Games
Has a Calender
Has a Calculator
Has an alarm

So it has all the basic utilitarian features of a smart phone, without the dangers of internet access, being able to receive graphic pictures from predators or other kids.


So we have been considering getting the kids a phone for a while. It would primarily be for my oldest who is old enough to run in a store alone for me while I stay with the kiddos in the car, or stay home alone for a while, or walk a quarter mile down the road to our library by himself to drop off or pick up school books. I want him to have a phone with him. Plus, honestly, finding him after church if we need to leave in a hurry for whatever reason is a pain. The youth groups meet in the old church building and he is all the way in the basement and I really don't want to drag out all the kids, esp with a newborn in March, to go get him early.

The phone will also be available to his brothers to call and talk to their dad, who is a trucker, any time, it won't be the exclusive property of my oldest, but he will be the primary user because of age and need.

That sounds fabulous!

Smartphones are the worst (I say as someone who has to take them from students in a daily basis)...

Yes I was worried about even getting them a flip phone because those can receive pictures and emails. So this is really exciting!
