Miro wants a phone for all the wrong reasons. He needs it as a storage facility for his multitude of downloaded songs. He needs it so he can record home movies. He needs it to take pictures. He needs it for the bluetooth app because he insists my phone should have copies of his handiwork. And it has to be a phone because it's handier and cooler that way.
Texting and calling... nah, not interested. Yet, anyway.
For this kind of need --and if this is your child's first phone-- it would be ridiculous to get him something as flashy and high techy as an iPhone. Come on --I can't even afford an iPhone for myself!
So where do you run to? Cherry Mobile or MyPhone! For the holiday season, they have loads of units selling off at insanely low prices. All loaded with multimedia apps and even promotional giveaways.
