The Next Generation of 'Teksting' - Texting Perfect for 6 Year Olds

As my daughter has received her new iPhone 4 to replace her 1st generation iPhone, I suggested letting the 6 year old techy wiz kid use it.  She was a little hesitant, but I see no harm.

You can set up only what apps, contacts, etc that they can use and restrict some of their capabilities and of course, eliminate the actual phone capability.  There are some great logic, chess and fun educational games that they can enjoy.

Since I have decided to join the 'texting' world and am using a free app called 'TextFree Unlimited' to text my daughter, she decided to leave that on the granddaughters iPhone.  She has been 'Teksting' me all morning and it is cute to see someone who has just learned to read, type and text like the best of them.  Her phonetic spelling is amazing and love the fun spellings that she is using.  It is almost like texting with a teenager.

Here is a sample of the conversation this morning: (luckily the TextFree Unlimited App gives us unlimited texting and works great for my needs)

The last series of texts were 'Tektst Me' ... 'Tekst Me!'  .... then the 'Tekst Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL, she has learned to express her self with the texting already.

Be sure to check out the TextFree Unlimited app it allows unlimited texting, others who aren't signed up with the service can text you at the textfree assigned phone number, has some customization, ads are not intrusive.
