    Best mobile phone contract for kids?

    Best mobile phone contract for kids? 20th Dec 09 at 11:44 AM
    Hi, I'm looking to take out a couple of mobile phone contracts ideally that come with a choice of handset on any network. What I'm looking for specifically is the ability to limit usuage.

    I'm fed up of them using other peoples mobiles and the landline so I'd like to get them contracts with X minute/texts that they can not go over. I've looked around but from what I can see this doesn't appear to be an option with any network provider unles someone can tell me different.

    Orange were doing 100 minutes and unlimited texts for 14.99 with a nokia 6303 that's the only one I've enquired about so far but they say I can't stop them from going over their minutes unless I keep checking their usuage online and when they were nearing going over then block the calls. This is what I want BUT I want it to be automatic. Surely someone must offer a similar contract, doesn't have to be 100 minutes, doesn't have to be that handest, doesn't have to be that price, but cheapest best, but I'd just like it so they can not go over their minutes, and get charged extra. When they've used them, that's it.

    Any help appreciated.

    I say kids but they're older teenagers really.

    I've read this article http://www.independent.co.uk/money/spend-save/how-to-avoid-nasty-surprises-if-your-child-has-a-mobile-phone-417102.html but it's dated back in 2006 is this still the case today or have things changed in anyway that could be more beneficial to someone like myself.

  • Surprised at a few nasty replies re cilla. The respectful thing when someone dies is say nice or say nowt. Grieving relatives may be reading
