If you absolutely have to do it, get her a prepaid and let her know she has to be careful with the minutes. I am still wondering why kids/teens need a cell phone. It has become too much of a "non-necessity" You got to figure if they are at school , there are phones available, there are still pay phones and everyone else has a cell phone that they will lend her. If she is only going to be with you 60 days then why waste your money when other phones are available.

Hi there,I am a Telecom Consultant. You say your b/f 's niece will only be with you guys for 60 days.Assuming she's gonna stay for the summer.Â However, you want her to have a phone so you can keep in touch,when she returns home. Am I correct on this?
As a teen she would benefit from the phone in more than one ways.I am not sure about that first response up there but pay phones aren't everywhere and you'd need money to calling card. Not exactly good ideas! For a teen she is old enough to have a phone,the teen lifestyle demands it! My biggest reason for being mobile is safety.I am sure you would want her to be safe and sure you don't want her to have to ask someone can she use there phone. Another plus for having a cell phone is they can take pictures and video. Teens are very social creatures they absolutely want this feature in a phone.

You can add her to your existing plan, if it is a good plan? just consider how many minutes and remember she's a teen so not only would she want the features above but she may prefer texting. The alternative would be prepaid I have a few nice ones a teen would love,of course prepaid can be limited. Either choice personally I think your so thoughtful.
Your welcome to P.M me or email email@example.com Or /and your welcome to use my cellphone finder to educate yourself more on phones and plans. I have a few vendors each may offer a different deal,I am not sure of what carrier you have. Good luck!

Kids that age text a lot. If you get her a prepaid phone you will be adding minutes every day. Just add a line to your phone with unlimited texting. It will be easier and a lot less expensive.
