Alcatel 1B Phone Review
The Alcatel 1B is a great first phone for kids. It is priced well for a student phone (pricing will vary by carrier and ranges from $90 – $110 CAD). This phone is a solid option when you want your kids to be able to stay in touch, enjoy camera and internet but without the worry of expensive phones with broken screens, getting lost, or even stolen.
Photo filters come pre-loaded in this phone for easy photo editing!

I know many parents struggle with the question “At what age do I give my kid a phone?”. The answer is personal depending on situation. For me, it is in middle school when the child walks to and from school on their own. In the middle school years, they get more independence. And a little more freedom of hanging out after-school and on weekends. So a phone is handy to keep in touch and put the responsibility on them to let you know where they are, who they are with, and when they are coming home. Of course, this comes with the conversation about where exactly they can go (stay local) and what is the expectation for coming home (for us it’s always be home by dinner).
