For Children, Dumbed-Down Phones May Be Smartest Option

But what will my friends think of me if I don’t have an iPhone 6S or Note 5?

When children put a smartphone at the top of their wish list, remind them that they don’t need any such thing. Talking and texting may be necessary, but roving Internet access is not. So a dumbphone it is, with voice service and unlimited texting آ— just to show you care and are no Scrooge. Throw in a nice Qwerty keyboard as a sign of parental generosity, but no, repeat, no data plan at all.
