Best Cell Phone Choices for Kids


When it comes to finding the best cell phone choices for kids, many parents may not know where to start. Do you want your child to be able to text you and their friends? Will you want them have internet access with a smartphone? There are so many factors to consider. At Twigby, we understand that there is not a one-size-fits-all cell phone for kids. The first phone you pick for your kid will depend on what you as the parent believes is best for your kid. At Twigby, you have plenty of affordable options when selecting your kid’s first phone. 

Certified Phones for Kids

We want to help you save money at Twigby, and we believe that certified phones are the best way to do that! Certified phones from Twigby are previously owned. They are thoroughly inspected and refurbished to like-new conditions. Just like a certified used car, we can offer these phones at substantial savings over a new model. This makes them a perfect option for a kid’s phone.

Since kids tend to be a bit harder on their phones, you can keep your investment small by going the certified route. This is a great option for any type of phone, but especially smartphones. With the typically more advanced technology, the price tag can be much higher. By purchasing a certified smartphone from Twigby, you will see huge savings over a new model, making for less stress on you and your wallet. You can learn more about Twigby’s certified pre-owned phones in our blog.


Bring Your Own Phone

Before you sell the phone you just upgraded from or storing it away in a box, consider saving it as a hand-me-down for your kid! With Twigby’s Bring Your Own Phone program, a great deal of our customers get started at Twigby without making any investment in a new phone. Many of these are kids’ phones that were used for a year or two by their parents and then passed down.

This is the most cost-efficient option. Another great benefit of choosing to bring your own phone for your kid is that you are already familiar with the device. You can help your kid learn how to use it without the hassle of learning for yourself first.

Check your phone’s compatibility, and get started today!

From only paying for what you need, to changing your plan at any time, Twigby customers are consistently pleased with the level of flexibility and affordability of their service. Simply select your monthly starting point for minutes and then for data (if you choose to—Twigby does not require you or your child to have a data plan). Every Twigby plan has unlimited text messaging included! You can learn more about Twigby’s cell phone plans for kids in our blog. Many Twigby accounts started for kids, but then the parents wanted in on the low prices for themselves! Many families save hundreds of dollars each year by switching to Twigby.
