Thinking of getting a cell phone for your child but want the cheapest cell phone plan available for kids? You’ve come to the right place.

Most big phone carriers are advertising “back to school” cell plan promotions for $40 – $50. If you are using the kid’s phone primarily for emergency use you can get away with a much cheaper cell plan.

Family Plans

We often get asked about family plans. In our experience, family plans tend to include more data than is needed and also end up costing more than individual plans from lower cost cell phone providers.

The best way to decide is to look at each family member’s data useage and then price out individual plans here. You’ll likely discover it’s less than going with a shared data family plan.
