    Default Buying mobile phone for 10yr old daughter - any recomendations?

    I will be getting my daughter a mobile phone for her birthday in a few weeks time.

    After something cheap/colourful/cheerful with inbuilt camera etc.

    Also don't know what network pay as you go/contract to get, it would mainly be used for texts and incoming calls.

    I've always had a company issue mobile phone so never had to look at buying one before.

    Anyone had to get a phone for their kids recently that they could recomend?

    I would get a PAYG phone, network wise i wouldnt have thought it mattered unless she has mates she txts, as some offer cheaper txts to same network ie: virgin - virgin = 3p

    Check sites like the carpphone warehouse, they normally have good offers on.

    Hope that helps

    Default phone

    My local morrisons had these on offer at £49 PAYG on T-mobile.

    I think they look rather snazzy and was going to buy one just for the sake of having a spare phone

    we got our 10 year old daughter a mobile for her 10th birthday, we just found the cheapest PAYG one that we could, think we paid less that £20 from ASDA, and we make sure its never got more than £10 credit on it. This way she can break it, lose it, have it stolen whatever and your not losing much. The advantage is that you can always track her down and get in contact when you need to and she can always get hold of you and her mates when she needs to.

    my advice is to just keep it cheap and simple.

    Well you wont really need an expensive one if she just wants it for calls etc,

    You can find a cheap pay as you go phone for around £30-50

    http://shop.carphonewarehouse.com/pa...ng/e250-lilac/

    Just a couple that are relatively cheap. If you have a local carphone warehouse near you.
