No texting cell phone?


Recommended Posts

Is there a cell phone out there that DOES NOT have texting, messaging, etc.???  I'd like to give my teen a cell phone for emergencies but I do not want it to have ANY messaging capabilities.  With all of the texting/driving issues, I thought there'd be a market for this but I can't find one.  They all seem to have messaging now.

I understand your concerns, but if you can't trust the teen to respect this, then are they responsible enough to be driving? Would it not be prudent for you to instead establish a protocol: In car, phone off, phone in glove compartment, lights on, mirror check, foot on break, etc.? And really drill it in?


I know it's hard to remember and teenagers get foggy headed but... maybe there's a training alternative?
