Buying mobile phones for kids can be difficult. Every week, there are new mobile phones being released, and kids change their mind almost as quickly, over which phone they want. Plus there’s the elephant in the room – the cost.
We recommend that children aged up to 15 years old, should consider using Pay As You Go instead of contract. It is very easy to keep track of your costs when you have to top up, whereas you can easily get carried away when you’re on a contract, because there are no cut off points. Contracts unfortunately, can run up costs very easily, and many children are unaware of their usage on a monthly basis.
We at under the christmas tree are going to make shopping for mobile phones for kids, easy.
All of the below phones are Pay As You Go.
