I bought my 10 yr old a cell phone for her birthday because there are sometimes when she will stay home with the doors locked while I go get the mail at the end of the street and she stays after school once a week for a club. Its a pay as u go phone so other then standard mins so she can call out for emergencies she has to earn text mins or call friends mins. When we r home sone has to ask to use her phone and tell me what for unless she is out with it. I'm really wanting to teach her that at her age cells are for emergencies and to communicate something quick like i need picked up. Her sister and her keep begging me for itouches for Christmas so they can text on wifi at home or library. These are expensive devices though and i know they more what it to text with each other, their cousins or me and my husband and sd could text her mom with it. What I'm looking for is like an itouch knock off that's much cheaper like under 75 or something that will text to normal cell phones on wifi without being a cell phone cuz I want the cell to be mainly used for quick or emergency calls. Also Sd is only 8 so I'm not ready for her to have a real cell. Any ideas.
