This phone gives parents strict control over their childrens' calls.
not sure what you mean by that. the children can call the numbers that are programmed into the phone and 911. Almost all cells phones these days have the option to restrict calls to those numbers in the phone book and 911.
so stricter controls than already present, nope.
The one thing with it i can think off is it does not restrict incoming calls. So kids could still run up there parent's phone bills just as easy.
This phone is designed to appeal to children and parents who have children. And it's marketed in the same manner.
Cingular will be selling the phone with post paid and pre-paid service, but it's going to be marketed as a pre-pay phone. While most phones do have strict controls this phone really stops kids from being able to circumvent those controls, by guessing the pass code, or other more extreme methods. It's also going to be marketed at the 4 and up crowd.. I know it's ludicrous, but hey some parents want it. I myself plan on being a snob (for no other purpose then I can) and getting one (with pre-pay) for my 3 year old son!
