My dd is a young teen, has taken a CPR and babysitting course, and already takes my younger children on outings already. I want to get her a cell phone, and I will get her a smart phone since I want her to be able to stay in touch with friends in Israel with Whatsapp.

I have an old blackberry passport which still works well, but I'm not at all familiar with new smartphones on the market. Can anyone please recommend a good phone, phone brand (unlocked preferred), and filter?

TIA!

Firstly, there are kosher smart phones that allow WhatsApp. Secondly, otherwise you really must consider sticking to an iPhone for its built in parental controls that work better than all other filters. And how much do you want to spend on a phone?

Thanks for your comments!
I haven't purchased a phone in 4 years, so I don't know what the going rate is. Perhaps I'd be willing to spend up to 250$ for an unlocked phone.... she's responsible but still young.

I've worried in the past about Iphones, since I've seen the planned obsolescence with them. Do LG and Samsung have the capacity to accommodate filters?

Which brands or companies are selling kosher smart phones? I'm OOT. I would have assumed, perhaps erroneously, that the filters make the phone kosher, so where do I buy the filter?

Great. I looked them up. It seems they even offer the service to kasher any phone.
