That text-crazy tween of yours will screech with delight when you hand him this slick phone with a full QWERTY keyboard so he can fire off texts faster than you can think. Flip the Sanyo Innuendo ($79.99) BoostMobile.com, closed to conceal the keyboard and use the sleek, touch-sensitive phone interface. He’s happy and you’re happy. Why? This phone is cool enough for your kid, but mercifully isn't a data phone (though it will connect to the Internet in a pinch), shielding him from the never-ending distractions and hazards of an always-on smartphone. And with an unlimited call, text, and web plan for $50, he can go crazy gabbing and texting without worrying about overage charges.
Bottom line: A slick texting phone with an unlimited plan at a fairly reasonable price.
