I would do prepaid. That way if it didn't work out you don't have to keep it.

 Never heard of a cricket phone, sounds like something I may like for myself, thanks! I'll have to look it up.

 Get her one that only calls 3 or 4 numbers. No text. no pics. 12 is really young and many dont "get it" when it comes to phones. ATT had(probably still does) a phone you can put in 3 numbers and 911.

Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.

 Uh, that'll never fly with BM. She wants to get her that phone plan, with a brand new Smart phone. I think she's crazy. All because 12 yr old DD is too "embarrassed" to use anything less than that.

       SAD. I nanny for kids that are 12  and 10. They and their friends have their phone taken more often then they have it because they aren't using it properly. I wonder WHO decided all middle schoolers should have phones. LOL

Only if it is out of your budget and doesn't reflect your values.
