    2 Questions, just bought zte score

    OK I just bought this phone for a 13 year old boy.

    First:
    I got this phone because they had a special and it was the cheapest way to go but he doesn't need the android plan or the muve music plan is there any way I can put this phone on the basic talk, text, web plan? I just cant see paying more for his bill than I do mine.

    Seconded:
    Does anyone know of a app I can put on this phone to track him? GPS and any kind of monitoring I can do on the phone where I can see it from my phone? I have an android.

    1st: I'll keep this short and sweet.. No.

    2nd: That's extremely unethical, if you distrust someone this much you shouldn't be in a relationship with them.. But if he's going to allow it for some reason I believe there's something called Google Latitude.

    Disclaimer: This post was not meant to seem angry or rude, just answering the questions honestly.

    You can use lookout. Its a virus protector... but you can track the phone down.

    LOL ok sorry my bad, I deal with too many ladies wanting to do this to their husbands that I am blinded...

    Latitude should be good, explain to him that if he disables then he won't be allowed to have the phone and it's only for safety reasons not to spy on him.

    I don't think it should be done secretly or abused because it would be a horrible feeling for him even if he is a child and not a husband/boyfriend.

    .....I wouldn't run an Android Machine without it...BUT pinpointing locations is dependent upon GPS being activated and set as the default. Some times you can pinpoint to a specific address...other times the location could be somewhere within a 2 Mile radious...Still I would install the free version of Lookout and for $2 or $3 dollars/ month you can upgrade as needed ; if a phone is lost/stolen; to lock it down for example

    I explained to him when I gave him the phone that he is to leave anything I put on the phone on it and that we would continuously be checking the phone so he understands that. We did find an app family locator I think and we can check the locations of all the phones from the other phones, Thank You for all the help. I also put lookout on all the phones.
