With so many options of cell phone service for tweens, there are a few things that you should really consider. Since many of us at Twigby are parents ourselves, we know the worries that arise when making this decision. After all, you’re giving your tween a whole new way to connect with the world! But, we also know the reasons why many parents allow their tween to have a cell phone. Below is a list of what you should consider when making this important decision.
You don’t have to buy an expensive smartphone to get great features.
Until recently, you needed to spend hundreds of dollars and be locked into a lengthy contract to get a decent smartphone at a good price. At Twigby, we carry affordable smartphones that have all the latest features you could ever want when looking for a new phone – without the contracts or activation fees.
And the best part? Smartphones have become very easy-to-use, even for the first timer.
Almost all offer one-click access to email, messaging, news, weather, turn-by-turn directions, photos, and access to your favorite social sites like Facebook.
At Twigby, you have a lot of great options to choose from. Plus, we back our service with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. And you don’t have to sign a contract!
BREAKING NEWS: Kids Want Phones
My kids are pretty typical. They all want their own phone…yesterday. If you have kids, you likely know this and hear it every day. As the mother of tweens, I recently purchased two phones and activated service through Twigby. I thought it might be helpful to hear about my experience getting cell phone service for my kids.
I have a ten-year-old and a thirteen-year-old, and I am very concerned about staying within a budget. It is also very important to me that they learn responsibility, as their freedom increases. Twigby gives me lots of ways to meet my main concerns.
