Verizon and Cingular are each cutting back sales of kid-specific models. Cingular is pulling the Firefly from its stores and will only sell the limited-function handset on its website. Verizon has pulled the LG Migo from its lineup altogether, instead directing parents to the LG VX3450L, which looks and acts like basic cell phone but lacks access to Get It Now download services. Manufacturers have not announced any new limited-functionality handsets for kids to replace these models. Kid friendly MVNOs like Disney Mobile only offer traditionally styled phones to their young customers, indicating these kid-specific handsets may have been a short-lived trend.
