Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

Last week, hubby wrote up a review on the Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 phone. My favourite quote that he shared was that it was like a “family room in your pocket” thanks to its impressive stereo speakers and high definition display.

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

I’m so excited to share a giveaway with you where you have a chance to win your very own!

Here’s a question for you: at what age do you feel it is appropriate (in your opinion) for a child to have their own cell phone that works out of the home? This is an ongoing debate among parents and I’m curious as to what you think. At this point in my life as a parent, neither one of my kids are ready or have a need for a cell phone. We hand our old phones down to them and they can use them to play games etc. in the home, but they are not connected to any service plan, only wifi. At the age of 10, my daughter already has friends who have their very own cell phone that they can use to make calls, text etc., so I figure it is only a matter of time before she starts asking for one. We are definitely not ready to give her a cell, but I’m curious what you think. Please do remember to respectful of all opinions. This blog must remain a respectful place.

It’s Giveaway Time!
Prize: An Alcatel One Touch Idol 3
Open to: Canadian Residents, outside of QC

    My husband used to have this phone but it met with an untimely and nasty demise. His replacement phone is awful (he bought the cheapest smart phone available since he’d only had the Alcatel one touch for a couple months) so I would love to win this for him to replace the crasher (his current phone closes his apps if he has more than one open or for no reason at all…)

  15. Alison Braidwood says:

    I’m coming around to the idea of having a cellphone (I have two that I’ve never activated, that are now well out of date). So it would be nice to have a proper smartphone that can do whizzy techo stuff.

  107. angela mitchell says:

    I’d actually love to win this for my dad. He is using a broken phone right now and I’d love to surprise him with a new one. I’m not sure what age is old enough to have a cell phone. My daughter is 9 and nowhere near ready for the responsibility. I think probably every kid is different. Once my daughter is allowed to be out and about by herself say at the mall I’d like her to have one so I’m guessing between ages 11 and 13.

As for when to give a child a cell phone,my kids got one as soon as they could afford to buy it and pay the bill themselves. They all have phones now , geesh lol One day instagram!

  136. Monique Shuell says:

    I have an old flip phone that has a cracked screen. My husband laughs whenever I text because it takes so long to get the letters I want. We would both be very happy if I had a modern phone.

  137. Marianne says:

    I actually don’t own a cell phone…. so having one would be intersting.
