User Review

Did anybody read the user review for this phone. There is a guy saying that the phone got his kid hit by a truck because the kid went across the street to answer it without looking. Ummmm..... That sound more like a user malfunction then a problem with the phone. No offense buddy, but maybe your kid should be taught not to cross the street without looking. Rolling Eyes

why dont you just buy your kid a free phone , every carrier has some, and they will prob. do a lot more than this repulsive green thing. and if your worried about your kid misusing a cell phone, teach then there limits to it, or wait till they are more mature.

Well what happens when you give this to a kid and they decide to call 911 without any need for help? What then, and what if your kid has it in there pocket and it presses the help button (911) and it calls without them knowing? Now you have phones calling 911 and your child has no idea. Fines people... your going to get fined. BIG. Just think about that....

This will do great!

I think that these new children's phones will do really good. Personally I think the Verizon one is cooler. I thought this phone was awesome the first time I saw it about 5 months or so ago. LG makes the best phones and it looks as though they're doing it again. I can't wait to start selling this phone. Very Happy

what's the point? just restrict an LG

Ok, so it's a "Shrek phone" and may appeal to little ones. My 7 year old has an LG6100. I can restrict outbound calls to the phonebook only (which I programmed and is also locked) so how is the Migo better? Its the same price, a pain to program (have you read the manual on this?) and more restrictive than a regular phone. If you reprogram the emergency button, how is the FCC, with their drive to make sure every U.S. cell phone can call 911, going to react?

Which Qualcomm GPS chipset is in Migo?

Anyone know which Qualcomm GPS chipset is in the Migo. It will be an MSM6050 or higher.

Great phone for my 89 year old mother-in-law?

My elderly mother-in-law has a wireless phone primarily in case she falls or otherwise gets in trouble ... but, it's operation is beyond her, she hates it, couldn't use it if her life depended on it (literally) ... soooo, this MIGO phone looks like it might be just right for her. Comments?

Just got one for my Son...It's so darn cute!

I just picked one of these up for my son and I have to say, this thing is so darn cute! I see some posts on here where people are saying what a waste this phone is, how ugly this phone is, and so on and so on.....Well, they have to remember that this phone isn't offered as an upgrade to an adult phone or even geared towards adults at all, it's for KIDS and I think the idea and style are perfect. Heck, I'm 32 and I like it! If it had a regular keypad I just might of gotten one for myself! I like that you can put the numbers in that they can call and that it is so easy to operate for young, first time users. I think it is a great safety device and so much better than those pre-paid phones because the minutes expire and if they don't use t...

Ugly yes HOWEVER....

It does have a GPS circuit so you can locate the kid which gives it one benefit other than the fact it's as cute as a leper with a sunburn.

I see the Firefly becoming a bigger hit because you can customize it from blue to pink and it has the mom and dad buttons which the Migo doesn't have.

911 Button??

Is that red button for emergency use? I don't think that is such a good idea. Kids will be pushing it all the time.

this should be designed for pants pissers

I laugh at this. 5 year old kids can run a phone better than I can.

What we really need is a phone for old people. They dont even know how to run a toaster let alone a cell phone.

All they need is 4 #'s

This would save me about 4 hours a day showing old f'ers how to turn the damn thing on! Smile

Waste of money

You might as well get a cheaper phone and tell your kids how to use the phone. They want Shocked 100 dollars Shocked for this.... Not in my life time!

Although I agree with many of the statements on this forum regarding the look of this phone and lack of functionality, I must confess that I am considering buying this phone for my 8 year old daughter. I love that there are only 4 phone numbers in the book and an emergency number as well.

I have an 8 yr old and a 12 yr old daughter and I have found out the hard way that trusting teenagers with a phone is not the easiest thing to do.

She has a large phone book (almost as large as mine) and has even taken to using her cell phone when she is home even thought the house phone is feet from her. She ahs become better with the phone after much reinforcing of rules.

My eight year old has been bugging me for a phone for some time now and I...

Just picked up phone today

Very Happy
my husband just picked up this phone today for my 6 1/2 year old. The phone cost $99 with 2 year activation, and $9.99 a month added onto our family plan. 6 1/2 year olds have actvities that we never had as child, that keep them away from us for lengths of time, i.e. Brownie meetings, after school sports, and numerous play dates. This is just a tool, for us to give them to reach us, if they want to use. It's not for everyone and it does tach responsibility at a young age (which they have more than I did at that age).

perfect for a child with disabilities

Smile Our oldest child is almost 13 years old and like most kiddos in junior high she wants a cell phone. She has multiple learning disabilities and we felt it would make her/us feel more secure if she could contact us whenever she needed to.
I let her have my old phone when I traded up, but we soon realized that while she wants/needs a cell phone it was too confusing for her to try to reach us;she dialed her grandparents, my closest friend, her school, but not us!!this totally freaked her out.
So, needless to say we are thrilled about the new phone and best of all our child is excited plus she likes the idea of having a shrek phone that is easy for her to understand. It is very important for kiddos with disabilities to have the "normal" ...
