I want a cell phone device for my children that provides the following:
Basic phone (minimal features)
Inexpensive phone (easy to replace when broken or lost - they are children)
All incoming (and outgoing) calls restricted to preset numbers only
All incoming (and outgoing) texts restricted to preset numbers only
It must be a standalone device - NOT a spyware app that is synced to another cell phone - a standalone device.
I want to be able to allow my child to send and receive cell phone calls and texts with only the people I approve. I do not want strangers sending them (on purpose or by mistake) ANYTHING. I do not want my child to receive ANY SPAM type of call, whatsoever. No "Creepos" sending nasty, sexual junk to my kid! My child may call or text grandpa, grandma, dad, mom, brothers and sisters, etc. - ONLY the ones I pre-approve.
I do not want my children playing games or listening to music in school like most all kids do during class-time today. I do want to be able to have my child contact certain people and I want to be able to contact her when appropriate to do so (not interrupting during school, though - if I need to reach her during school I will make it a point to call the school and have them communicate to her). There are other devices my child has for gaming and music - no gaming on this phone.
I do not understand why this is not in HUGE demand. I assume that most parents simply do not understand what their kids actually experience through their phones! If parents only knew what their kids were actually doing from their phones, this device I am seeking would compete with the latest, greatest cell phones in overall sales.
May I have a device that meets all of these simple and completely easy needs?
