Just a word of warning for any of you who are thinking of buying your pre teens a phone before they head off to secondary school or whatever.
Be warned, I-phones are the only phones police cannot hack into.
if your child is groomed online or being bullied or being sent unsuitable pictures etc, the police cannot access I-phones unless the child tells them their password which most kids refuse to do, if it means they are going to have their phone searched or taken away.
Just thought I'd post this so that if anyone is considering getting their child an I-phone they might consider getting them a Samsung or other brand instead.
Also qustodio, which is great in my opinion, can only stop texts and phonecalls on android not iOS. so although he has my old iPhone at present the next phone that he borrows off me will definitely be a samsung!
Mum to AS Big Fish (19, 16 years at home) and AS Little Minnow (13, almost 6 years at home), came separately, and now a wonderful, feisty horse who lets me escape from kids with attitude and the drudgery of disability services and a top of the range adapted van provided by the council fulfilling their legal requirements!
