Whats the best phone for a 11yr old to text n make phone calls? Cheap plans in good signal areas. Dont need extras as he has an ipad and laptop to use.
My son used instagram to text me to pick him up from his cousins place. My son doesnt speak up to adults so i think a phone will be dmaller than an ipad he was using.

  • A good question! You might also be able to pick up an older model of a phone or a “dumb” phone which doesn’t have any internet capabilities for cheaper too.


  • My year 7 got my old iPhone, I have him on the pre paid OVO $9.95 a month, unlimited text, $200 call and 1gb data, absolutely perfect and he gets coverage everywhere he goes.


  • Also; a good idea to go through phone use and responsibilities and safety with any child using a phone.


  • Our daughter got her first phone when she started Year 7. We bought a Telstra Tempo, smartphone, simple to use, and with a $25 casual plan.


  • Cheap and cheerful is the way we go in case the phone is lost or dropped. A basic phone with a basic prepaid plan for making calls and some data.
