Kid's First Cell Phone

You’ve decided it’s time for your kid’s first cell phone, but do you really need to be paying for another expensive talk and text cell phone plan?

The answer is no! Your child can get their own phone number with Canada-wide calling and messaging, all for FREE with the Fongo Mobile app!

Not enough? Get 2-way SMS Texting and/or add a sim card so they’re connected while away from WiFi. Read on to find out more.

Things to consider for your kid’s first cell phone

Your kid’s first cell phone is a big deal and there are several important things to consider:

  • Did you get them a phone for emergency/safety reasons?
  • Do you want them to have a direct way to contact mom, dad, or 911?
  • Maybe all of their friends have a talk and text phone plan and they feel left behind.

Whatever the reason, the Fongo Mobile app can satisfy all of your concerns.

When your kid’s cell phone device is connected to wifi while at home and at school, they can call or be called using their Fongo Mobile phone number. The Fongo Mobile number is a regular phone number that can make outgoing calls, as well as be called by any phone number, such as your traditional cell phone.

Download the app yourself on your device, then get your own Fongo Mobile phone number to message your kid for free, from app to app. You can also text their Fongo Mobile phone number from your cell phone number by purchasing a texting package in your child’s app for just $2.79/month.

Safety Features

Your child can call 911 using the Fongo Mobile app, and your home address will be tied to your kid’s phone number. In the event they call 911 and don’t communicate to the dispatcher, emergency services would still arrive at your home.

988 suicide prevention services can also be reached using Fongo Mobile at no cost.

In the Fongo Mobile app’s settings, you can block calls from any number that is not saved in your child’s contacts, which can prevent them from falling victim to scams or any other malicious activity.


Fongo Mobile gives your child their very own phone number that they can share with friends so they aren’t feeling left out.

Users of the Fongo Mobile app can group chat with each other at no cost (up to 10 people) so your family and/or your kid’s friends can use the Fongo Mobile app to group chat together, regardless of device type/operating system.


Whether they’re 6 or 16 there are so many reasons to ensure your kid’s first cell phone is reliable and accessible. Explore the Fongo Mobile App FREE features that are available to your child upon sign-up below.
