Yes yes...I think they generally close one eye.

I heard that there is a Singtel service that tracks where the phone is....not sure if it is still there. It might be useful in times like this when the phone is lost.

Hmmm...read in the papers today (straits time) that there are software that you can buy to do tracking. Interesting....wondering where to get it, and what are the phone requirements :?

Mine has been bringing a phone since P4 as I need to pick him after school. Special permission slip must be carried at all times. Phone can only be turned on outside school gate.

Our school allows mobile phone as long as it is registered with the school. The school will tag the phone.

It is put on silent mode all the time. Good for doing sms & emergency situations.

As for lowering the possibility of loss, keep a low profile that she owns one. Also we give a very cheap and uninteresting model bought overseas and it uses hi card.
So far so good.

2G sms /call services will be phased out next year, so do get handsets that can support at least 3G networks.

Anyone has a good recommendation for a location tracker app for kids phone that can't be easily switched off?
