Thanks Hermanmunster, I agree PAYG is the best option. I see all these 'free' phones but of course have the rolling contract and don't really want to get into all that.
Thanks Tinks, I shall check out the supermarkets and have a good look. Some of her friends have blackberry's and I have no idea how these work (am an iphone user myself) but isn't 11/12 a bit young for a blackberry, or am I not 'with it'.
Out of interest (and something I don't think DD has encountered at primary) but is there peer pressure to have the 'right phone' at secondary. I know having 'the right' school bag counts sometimes
Think i'll keep her at primary a bit longer, getting very emotional already
(in a I know you need to spread your wings but want to keep you as my baby kind of way)
