When it comes to buying a child his or her first cell phone, which should you get? Parental controls on many popular phones are great, but they only go so far. That’s where Sprint’s new WeGo phone comes in. The WeGo can limit your child’s calling and messaging to only the contacts you allow, while also letting you track just about anything your child does on the web or through its apps. It also features GPS that can show you exactly where the WeGo is at any time. And, should something go wrong – like if the phone unexpectedly shuts off or if someone pulls the tether-based panic alarm – the WeGo can send you an alert. The phone is pretty inexpensive, too, especially compared to fully-featured smartphones. It’s just $5 a month for two years – that’s $120 total – with a $10 monthly service plan that includes 1,000 minutes of talk time and 1,000 messages. If this sounds like the phone for you and your child, the WeGo is now available at Sprint stores.
