Great build quality. Packed full of fun features. Really works. Very cute look -- so my girls love them.
Lots of useful features:
:: Program to be off during school hours
:: Find out where your child is (or at least which pre-defined location the cell phone is near) -- it claims 50-300m accuracy
:: Set maximum call time
:: Even turn it off
:: Or set the volume
:: Or the numbers it calls from each preset button
:: Even the ringtones
... all by sending text messages from the uber-parent's phone.
Perfect for the anxious or controlling parent!
The child can still loose it ... then it's no use!
Charger uses a USB cable (that's OK) but if I plug it into my computer to charge the phone, the computer complains about a malfunctioning USB connection and beeps at me until I pull out the cable. The manual does not mention any 'data' use for the USB cable.
Could be cheaper -- then good would be great!
After putting in the SIM and battery you are directed to set up the guardian's (uber-parent's) phone number. After that the i-baby sends a text to the uber-parent with the format of SMS commands (very obliging). So if you are using a new SIM that needs to be registered first, best to do that on a regular phone before putting it in the i-baby.
The (small) charger comes with US/China mains pins ... easy enough to bend to local (New Zealand) style.
You know you want one -- your 7 year-old definitely does.
