cell phone add a line for my 12 year old on verizon

722 409 November 2, 2017 at 06:36 AM
I want my 12 yr. old to have a phone, like everyone else at his age. My husband and I currently have Verizon. I want my son to have a smartphone but no data (I will turn it off with the carrier).
Should I just add him to verizon, or just get a prepaid cell phone? If so whats the cheapest way to do this?

Switch to Sprint unlimited less than $10 monthly for your whole family.

If you have Verizon, and have an older phone available, you can just buy a Tracfone SIM card and keep him on prepaid plan with very little data. I have my 11 yr old using my old iPhone 5s and got some discounted Tracfone cards. I have been paying an average of about $8 a month for his phone. Verizon will bang you with that in taxes and service charges alone plus the $20/month line fee.
