My 7 yo kid is making me nuts for a cell phone. 
Of course, the answer is no.
Is there any regular cordless phone that "looks" like a cell phone?
Something that works with my landline, so there are no monthly fees.
Maybe a flip style???  Or something small?
I searched Amazon and can't find one…
Any ideas?

Some of the DECT phones look a bit like old-school cellphones. Or lmaybe something like this Uniden model.

Or just give him an old cellphone, or a fake one. Look for free or FAR prepaid phones

Just say no?


What about a old cell that makes calls over wifi?

Thanks.

Code: [Select]
or a fake one
That wont work. He wants to make some calls & "feel" important.

EXACTLY what I had in mind. But the ratings look poor. At least I now have a starting point for searching. Thanks!
