Telstra TicTalk

 

The TicTalk is a mobile phone designed for young children. Looking more like an obscure stopwatch than a communications tool, it offers a bevy of feat...

Very flexible to program, Easy to use Web portal

Design and shape, Scroll wheel performance, Cost

If you really want your young child to be able to keep in touch, then you'll definitely be interested in the TicTalk. It's very flexible and the web portal is clean and simple. Keep in mind though that it's not cheap, nor is it without some minor issues.

Parents will probably love it, kids will probably hate it. What is it? Why, it's the Tic-Talk, Telstra's play for the presumably lucrative junior mobile phone market.

Phone numbers must be pre-approved ; Can give anytime or "reward" minutes ; Educational play opportunities

Limited functionality ; High asking price

There's undoubtedly a challenge with the TicTalk as your child gets older; younger children will probably like the simple nature of the unit, and the fact that they're trusted with a phone unit, but older kids may well bemoan the fact that it's a very...

My son suffered from bullying also but the incident happened the moment I gave him a Just5 phone. With just a press of a button, he can contact me, his dad, his teachers, and some friends when in situations like this. What I love more about this phone...

What a fabulous idea! My son spends time at my house and his fathers and being able to call me (without having to ask his father's permission) is very important to me and my son.

Simple to use (my son is 5 and knows how to call me!)

A bit chunky but being used by a 5 year old, it needs to be

Telstra TicTalk

 

I am considering buying a phone for my child. I am currently looking at this and other options. It would be a lot easier to make a solid decision if the imature and rude juveniles wouldnt bother to leave so much useless feedback. Talk about getting a...

So far I think the pros def. out-weigh the cons

too many ridiculous comments to get a good idea

I think this is a great idea. I don't have one of these phones but would llike to get one for my girls. In this day and age its a good idea to have a safety net for your children. As I have two young girls that some nights after school walk to thier...

Little bit of comfort knowing children can reach you if they need

Telstra TicTalk

 

I have not used this handset, so can only ideally give it a conceptualy rating of 7 out of 10 so far. However to those that bag it ie: ANON who is 15, then you need to remember that this is a phone for 10 or younger. It is more expensive as it has...

Simple design and easy to use

Too many features. I would prefer a design similar to Ikids as this just has 5 buttons for use

Well, I dont have this phone, but it seems stupid and idiotic. What sort of kid would want to walk around with a thing like this? It was really stupid of Telstra to make mobiles, coz all of their mobiles suck... overall, this phone is terrible.

Nothing

Everything. Its like we have gone back to when phones just began, no colour, camera, video, or cool stuff
