Screen Free Smarter Phone
We got Screen Free Smarter Phone for both my boys over Christmas. And I am glad I did! I got them primarily to be able to contact my boys as they get older and go over to friends houses and stay home. while I make trips to the store and generally become more independent, WITHOUT giving them access to a cellphone with a screen. And all issues that can happen with kids and unsupervised cellphones. The boys like them for all the fun features – joke channel and translating, but mostly they like being able to chat with their cousins anytime. We were able to get all our family, including my brothers, in one channel, now I know a lot more about what preteen boys talk about ???.Promised Review P. Callaway
Functionally it works like a walkie talkie, rather than a cell phone. One big button push to talk. A smaller button for changing channels. All the channels and settings are done through the phone app. The phone app notifies me when people are talking on any of the channels. My husband has the app also, we are logged into the same account. But he has a different username, so he can monitor them too. It’s nice that it’s a limited set of people who can talk (I get to choose). The phone won’t become a distraction or a source of trouble. There’s also a track feature which you can optionally enable to get info about where the phone is. They just made a lanyard to go with it that has a clip that fits into the phone hook. And the price is right for a kids phone as well.
