    That is a very expensive phone for a child that age. I would give my daughter my upgrades as my husband and I got them, and now she has a 4S and we have the 5S and 5C. I don't know how social your child is at that age, but my daughter stays on that phone constantly. She is 13 years old and had a 3G for a year before that. Giving her that phone was the biggest mistake I ever made, especially not putting limitations on it before I gave it to her. She literally cannot go anywhere without it, and she can search the web for hours. She has an Ipad and never did this on her Ipad, but for some reason her phone has become her lifeline. She does not even turn on the television anymore. Just my humble opinion- I should have set forth boundaries (such as using only on weekends), only certain times during a day, etc. I had no idea the phone would become such an important part of her life.

  • Yes, but I would put parental restrictions (located in the settings). A lifeproof case would be helpful.
