I bought this for my 11 year old as she is leaving for "big school" and "ALL" her friends have mobiles and she wanted to keep in touch! This is perfect! I didn't want one that she could access the internet but didn't want her to think that hers was a bit frumpy or naff! She loves it! Touch screen and easy to use. Would definitely recommend to the young and the little bit older! It is by far much nicer than even mine!
