My 9 year old daughter, almost 10, has wanted a phone for awhile. And by awhile, I mean, forever. Like her life is ruined if she doesn’t get one soon. Of course, her life is also ruined if we run out of her favorite chips.
Anyway, I’m pretty sure that she heard Pantech had a first phone for tweens because suddenly I heard from the company. The conversation went something like this.
Pantech PR woman: Pantech has this great new phone for tweens. Would you like to review it and also give one away to your readers?
Me: Did Dylan call you?
Pantech PR woman: Who’s Dylan?
Me: Oh you know who she is. Your partner in crime. The clever 9 year old who is trying to get a phone. The one who called you to set this whole thing up.
Pantech PR woman: I’m not sure what you’re talking about but I’d be happy to give you more information about the Pantech Vybe phone.
Me: Man, she trained you well.
So Pantech sent me a phone for Dylan and her younger sister Summer to try out. This is how they felt when the phone arrived…
And the Pantech Vybe truly is a great first phone. It has a large touchscreen display, a slide-out keyboard (which is perfect for little fingers), an easy camera button, messaging, videos, Bluetooth, access to social media (if you want that for your kid) and more.
That’s the part my kids liked.
This is the part I liked….
It’s VERY affordable. It’s available at AT & T for only $29.99 with a 2 year contract.
Plus, all you have to do is disable the data usage and you can prevent you kids from using Facebook, Twitter, email and the Internet. That leaves old school phone calls and texting which is exactly how I like it.
Plus you know this company is smart because they bought the web address MyFirstPhone.com. Which was a much smarter purchase than MothersForJustinBieber.com. (Yes, I bought that address and no it didn’t really pan out.) I never invest in the right things.
Anyway, because the folks at Pantech are super cool, they are giving away one of these phones. Yes, that’s right. To one of you.
Just leave a comment on this site mentioning Pantech. Like… “If I had a son, I would totally name him Pantech” or “FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, GIVE ME THIS PANTECH PHONE.” Something like that.
Good luck ladies. xo
