- PAYG Sim for kids?
What savoyad said.
We went with 30 day rolling contract £5-8 a month is 4 or 5gb data and 1000mins/texts, much much better value. We have a cap of £0 extra spend on all accounts. They run out, thier problem or hand me £10 and I go on app on my phone and add it to thier account. I also get to lock down expensive calls and (in theory) block porn etc.Posted 5 months agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
One is Plusnet, cheap sale offer I grabbed.
One is on ID, again a sale bargain and stuck with it.
One is Three as I phoned to move to Plusnet at end of a contract to buy handset and they matched the deal.
All 30day, sim only.
They buy thier own phones. If they damage or lose, they buy new. One lost a Nokia 8 he had saved for – and now all three are very careful with them. Compared to pals who break or lose phones regularly, and have them replaced. We don’t do insurance on them.
We also have two old Moto G2’s that are on EE PAYG as riding phones, save taking good phones. They were free as work retired old handsets, already in bash proof/waterproof cases.Posted 5 months ago5plusn8Member
Thanks all. Lots of good recommendations here.
I should have explained my intentions.
She gets £5 a week cash to do what she wants with so I want her to manage the buying of minutes etc, so I am less worried about value for now. When that is proven then I will just get her a sim only contract with unlimited minutes etc – Plusnet do a good one for about 10quid a month. I guess I just want her to understand what’s involved and what she gets for her cash, a learning opportunity if you will. Plus letting her understand what its like to be less well off and not have access to a bank account etc.
God I sound like Jacob Rees Mogg. Delete me.Posted 5 months ago
