"If you people are crazy if you think you're giving you're kids a phone."0.5 starson by ThunderShock2005
Pros: NOTHING! you can get any phone and use the FIXED DIALING feature instead of this.
Cons: This ISN'T a phone. A phone is something that has a keypad!
Summary: "Mom and Dad, and 25 customizable Phone Book, blah blah blah."
Most REAL phones have a feature called FIXED DIALING. (Read about it)
PEOPLE: GET YOUR KIDS THE REAL THING!!!
*This thing costs $99.00! Get your kids a camera phone! Most are free now! Hello! Value?
*It's plastic! That's like telling your kids "Here's a new toy, bounce it off the wall." EASILY BREAKABLE.
*You're kids would be laughing stock outcasts of their little kid community. It's out of style or "O.S."! It's not even a color phone!!! And your kids would be called momma's boy or daddy's girl because of the fact that there's a dedicated mommy and daddy key on it! And trust me, nobody will be jealous of it because the average FIVE, not ten, FIVE year old has a camera phone now.
*It comes with a backpack clip. That would encourage some money-seeking kids to STEAL it. But then again, who would want it?
*Parents would have to input Parental PINs everytime you want to add new phone numbers into it. And it doesn't have a keypad either, so do you have ANY idea how long that would take to scroll left and right and click OK EVERY SINGLE NUMBER. And from PIN to TELEPHONE NUMBERS you have to store. You are bound to say something after the 3rd telephone number.
*It can only store 25 phone numbers on the phone book.
*Well if you get the Cingular one then ok, get mobile to mobile and Unlimited Nights and Weekends, your fine. But if you get the Firefly Mobile one, get ready for the credit card bill of your life because with 25 cents per minute and your kids wanting to talk to you about their day, and how much they miss you, and what their teacher said about them, etc., You will probably get a RAZR instead of the Firefly because you will be going to fireflymobile.com every single day for airtime refills because your kids can't control their calls! You won't be yelling at them...THEY'RE KIDS!!!
Overall, this phone is a big waste of money and time.
If you're reading this review and thinking that I'm just some teenager that doesn't know what he is talking about,
WELL, your wrong.
And if you decide to actually BUY the Firefly, well, don't say I didn't tell you so.
