Suggestions for a cheap texting plan for my daughter please. *PIOG*
Kyra's dad and I recently (6 weeks ago or so) split up. So far, she's handling it okay and has really taken to texting which ever parent she's not with. We want to get her her own phone so she doesn't have to constantly ask to use the other parent's phone (for example, she'll ask all the time to see my phone to send her dad a simple "hi dad" text, or ask him for his to send me one). It'll also help her stay in contact with some out of the area/out of state family on her own. So, yeah, we've already decided we want to get her a phone. That's not the question though. Where should we go for it? Does anyone know of anywhere that will just let you activate a phone you already have? I am upgrading my own, and when I did last time I gave her my old one to use as an alarm and camera (about a year ago, and she's still taking awesome care of it), so there will be two just laying around here. Seems a waste to buy another one.
What we're wanting is either unlimited text or a lot of messages options, very few talk minutes since she doesn't call much, she prefers texting because it helps her with her letters and spelling.
found one place that looked great, just $15/month for 60 talk minutes
and unlimited text and awesome sounding parental controls. But the
cheapest phone they have that she could use (w/the qwerty key board) is
the exact same one she has had for the past year. Seems a major waste of
money to buy the same phone we already have sitting here. Her dad and I
use Sprint, but their cheapest is still more than we want to pay for it
(we plan to either split the bill every month or just switch off on who
pays it every month).
