    Cell phone for pre-teens/teens

    What kind of phone and plan would you recommend? My daughter is going to JHS this year and I'm thinking about getting her a cell phone.

    I think that's a good move. All my nieces got them in Junior high in case of emergencies. I would get the cheapest plan but up the text message plan because these kids text like crazy. Verizon has the mist reliable service here...I dont know about where you are.

    I think a basis plan should be fine, but it all depends on how she is going to use the phone, cause some of the kids could talk. When we first got my little brother a phone he had 200.00 phone bills, cause he would let all his friend use it, he aint got much sense. I think you should also look into prepaid phone, but it really depends on the usage.

    Virgin Mobile pay as you go. They have like 4 flexbile plans that don't require contract and you can switch between them anytime you want. Plus I think virgin has the most "lil girl stylish" phones.
