      Love the idea of prepaid for kids. You as a parent of a bit more control and you teach your kid proper cell phone usage. You buy minutes as you go,so they learn to control their usage more. And if they run out they have to wait to top it off for the next month,however you work it,or if they want to buy more minutes it's on them and what they can afford. A good plan to start them off with is the all you need plan with Straight Talk which offers 1000 talk/text and 30mg web for $30. And the phones are very affordable. Did this for my teen and it has worked perfectly! Great service to,coverage everywhere so far.
