Fantastic First Phone For Young Kids/Tweens!
Reviewed on Thursday November 3, 2005 by Cathy Faist, New Jersey USA
My daughter has this phone and just LOVES hers! And her having her own cell phone gives ME peace-of-mind when she's not with me...yet I don't have the worry of her running up huge cellphone bills with text messaging and whatnot, because THIS cellphone has no keypad-which means, kids can not use text messaging!
It was easy to set up, easy to program and even my daughter, who's 11 has no problem putting in new numbers or using her Firefly phone at all.
You can add minutes by buying more minutes via Firefly phone cards in various denominations.
The Firefly phone can hold 20 numbers of friends/family, PLUS there are dedicated 'Mom' and 'Dad' buttons, which will call mom or dad with just a push of the buttons!
AND, there is another button just for 911! Its on the side, but has to be held in for a certain amt. of seconds before it will make the call to 911-so it can't accidently be called.
There are great and fun accessories you can get for the Firefly phone too! My daughter, being a girl, wasn't too happy with the blue outter shell case-so she now has the Bubblegum pink shell and just loves it!
As a first phone, this phone is fantastic for younger kids, who lets be honest, really don't need all the bells and whistles of a regular cellphone and mom and dad sure don't need the high bills from them!
Many of her friends love her Firefly phone and some have even gotten their own-they think its, and I quote...'cool' and 'Awww..its so cute!' lol
