Prepaid. I made mine wait till hs. It was for emergencies only. No texting, nothing. Just 20 calls a month.

Get a family plan and add a line (only voice) for $10 a month.

Our 13 year old has an iPhone on our plan. Why? To add another line through Verizon, that was the free phone option. Than he gets unlimited texting and minutes, limited internet availability, for about the same as like a $40 prepaid plan would be.

We use Virgin Mobile. $35/month unlimited data and text, limited talk (200-300) minutes/month, not exactly sure of the amount since we never use all the talk time, lol.

 We just bought a T-Mobile unlocked phone for about $50 on Amazon. We had an old phone at home that we used the Sim card for. It has a camera, can text and a phone. There is no internet on it. The trouble with all the Smartphones is that they give them to you really cheap, with a 2 year agreement and then you end up paying a ton of money on your phone bill for all the features you have to have. If you already have a cell phone carrier, look into unlocked phones and buy one that you feel comfortable with.

My DD has the same plan with us through Verizon and has the iPhone, it was def the best deal as the 4th phone on the plan.

This is what my dd has now.  Its 300 minutes a month talk and unlimited text and web.  she's had several phones over the years and this is by far my favoirte.
