We all know that kids want cell phones. I’ve been so torn about getting a phone for the boys because I did not want to add them to our family plan and spend that extra money every month. I also did not want to have to keep adding minutes to a prepaid phone.
This week Target had this waterproof Kyocera Hydro cell phone on sale for $9.99
It’s an Android smartphone that has the Google PlayStore. I set up the phones on our home Wi-Fi and the boys a Google Account and they started downloading apps immediately. We also found a cool app called Pinger that allows you to send and receive text messages for free as long as your connected to Wi-Fi and it gives you 10 free phone call minutes.
They are both happy with their phones and I will add a few minutes for emergency calls, but as of right now they can text and email away.
