Phone review: Firefly Phone with Cingular Plan: the first phone created for kids and their safety is now available with any Cingular Wireless plan. The Firefly cell phone features 5 keys only, two of which are dedicated to call mom and dad, making extremely easy for your child to call either parent if in need.
Polyphonic Ringtones: 12 Pre-loaded Ringtones
The central button displays a 20 entry phonebook which can be preprogrammed by parents. By using a parental PIN, this feature allows parents to control who their children are talking to and it will help controlling the monthly minutes allowance as well.
On the right end side of the phone there is an easy access 911 operator assistance button. The phone also has a caller ID display and probably the best feature of all, the phone automatically rejects any phone call not originating from the 20 pre-programmed numbers. The phone has the universal 2.5mm headset jack allowing a large selection among cell phone earbuds and headsets. The phone can use interchangeable faceplates which allow style customization, a must among kids. It comes with 12 pre-loaded ring tones, 7 screen colors and 5 animated graphics. Kids love it and parents feel more secure.

What are Cingular Roll Over Minutes?
With Rollover Minutes from Cingular Wireless, you keep your unused package minutes. So when you don't use all the minutes in your monthly plan, they rollover to the next billing cycle, saving you money on overage charges. Rollover minutes are only available on Cingular NATION $39.99/month and above plans
and expire after twelve months and/or immediately upon default, or if customer changes rate plans to a non-rollover plan.
Review by Sarah C.:
I think this phone is great for kids. i bought it for my 7 year old son....I know who my son is calling and who can call him. I love the parental control--It is the ultimate in knowing what your kid is doing. I love the lights & graphics. The Mom & Dad Keys are great too. I don't like the ringtones, I wished they were a little better. Perhaps menu could be more user friendly.
