Looking to find the best cell phone plans for kids? You've come to the right place.

I'm sure you've searched through the big names like T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, and AT&T. You may have even researched the kid-friendly phones available.

But let me guess, these are likely not very cheap cell phone plans and don't have the monitoring capability you're looking for.

Because let's be honest, the best cell phone plans for kids are ones that are also convenient for parents because, at the end of the day, you're likely the one handling the cell phone bill. So, it's essential that your child's cell phone needs match yours!

What should the perfect 'kids phone plan' include?

The best cell phone plans for kids should include all of the important things kids are looking for when they get their first cell phone. This includes unlimited data, high-speed data, and unlimited talk and text.

But what if kid mobile phone plans were even more specific to kids AND convenient for parents?

Like unlimited free replacements? Or full parental monitoring access? Sounds too good to be true, but that's exactly what Aqua One's monthly subscription offers, making us totally different - and better - than all of the other cell phone plans out there. You don't have to worry about adding them to your current family plan or paying additional third-party fees.

Best cell phone plans. Aqua One phone plans for kids.

Prepaid plan. No commitment.

Phone plans for kids. $0 down, no contract, prepaid plan.

In simple terms, you pay for your phone service at the beginning of the month and are put on an auto-pay subscription until you want to cancel.

The Aqua One cell phone plan costs $0 down and is a no-contract, prepaid plan. Each month you only owe a flat subscription cost of $69.

This includes the Android-powered smartphone device itself, unlimited data, unlimited talk and text, 5 GB of ultra-high-speed data, unlimited free replacements, and unlimited parental monitoring access.

There are no activation fees or third-party add ons. You can cancel anytime and won't be charged. You and your family can take it month by month. When you no longer need Aqua One, we'll send you a prepaid shipping label and you'll just need to pack it up and send it back to us.

Who wouldn't want an unlimited plan?

Unlimited data, unlimited talk and text.

Gone are the days of reaching our monthly data limit, only being able to send 100 text messages, or having limited minutes to talk on the phone with friends and family. Nowadays, almost all of the available cell phone plans include unlimited data, unlimited talk, and text.

But that's not always the case with kids' cell phone plans...

Unlimited data plan

Oftentimes, cell phone plans for kids don't include an unlimited data plan because the cell phone doesn't even offer access to the internet or app store. Since Aqua One functions as a normal Android-powered smartphone, your child has the freedom to search the internet and download apps from the Google play store, so unlimited data is a must!

Unlimited talk and text

These other kid cell phones likely don't include unlimited talk and text because who needs unlimited talk and unlimited texting when you can only text and call your 5 parent-approved contacts?

Lucky for your kid, Aqua One includes unlimited talk and unlimited texting, giving them the freedom to chat with friends as much as they'd like!

Aqua One operates off of two of the nation's largest cellular networks so that they can use their cell phone on road trips, when they are out with friends, or anywhere they don't have access to wi-fi.

Additional 5 GB of ultra-high-speed data, sweet!

In addition to their unlimited data plan, they will have 5 GB of ultra-high-speed data. If they would like more data at a higher speed, it can be added to their cell phone plan each month.

However, once they use their included 5 GB of data, they will just automatically switch to their normal speed unlimited data plan.

With Aqua One you can save money and not have to worry about being charged when they go over their monthly data usage or wireless service, phew!

Unlimited free replacements

Did your kid jump in the pool with their Aqua One?
Did they drop it off the jungle gym at the park?
Did they lose it at the airport?

Not a problem.

We'll replace your child's Aqua One whether it's lost, broken, or stolen. For free. You won't need to purchase any additional warranty because it's included in your monthly subscription. Contact our team and we'll have a new one on its way to you in no time.

You'll ultimately save money by not having to pay for repairs or replacements. Because let's be honest, kids can be reckless even when it comes to expensive things.

This way, you can let your kid be a kid and not have to worry about the high costs of replacing broken, lost or stolen cell phones.

Parental monitoring

When you're looking through 'the best cell phone plans for kids,' you probably aren't able to find one that includes your ability to monitor all of their smartphone activity from your own phone.

We know this because Aqua One is the only cell phone that gives parents this kind of insight. And to make it even better, we bundle it into your monthly Aqua One cell phone plan.

How does it work?

When you receive your child's Aqua One, you will activate their device by connecting it to your parent monitoring dashboard. Using your own phone (can be any iPhone or Android) you simply log in and can easily check in on what they've been up to. Because with unlimited data, they'll be able to play games, explore and internet, and navigate social media apps wherever they are, making it even more important to keep you in the loop.

What can I monitor?

Absolutely everything. Since your child has the ability to explore all apps, you have the ability to monitor all apps.

Aqua One does not enforce parental controls, but is the only phone that lets parents monitor all apps.

This monitoring access is completely covered under your monthly Aqua One cell phone plan. It ensures that you'll always have consistent access to everything they are doing on their Aqua One. Text messages, internet searches (even incognito ones), app downloads, social media posts, online friend requests, group chats, watch history, you name it. It even detects potentially concerning or inappropriate content for you to take a second look at.

What other cell phone plans let you do that? We'll answer that for you... none.

Here's a quick breakdown of all of Aqua One's parental monitoring features...

Messages

This means every message sent or received by your child. Whether they are messaging with friends over social media or through texting, you'll be able to see their entire conversation and who they are chatting with from the Messages page. Even group chats will be shown here!

With unlimited texts, monitor all sent and received messages.
Actions

The Actions page is where you will find all of their app activity. For example, if they are scrolling through TikTok, you will be able to see every video they scrolled past, whether or not they liked it, any comments they read or made, if they followed anyone, if they posted anything, etc. Nothing is off-limits. If your child downloads an app and is spending time on it, you'll find all of that activity here.

Instead of parental controls, Aqua One offers full monitoring access. See all app activity on the Aqua One.
Word Cloud

Your Word Cloud is a custom feature we have designed to show you recurring themes in their language. Essentially what it does is show you the words and hashtags your child is using most often. It can reflect their current interests, the type of content they are interacting with, and how they are communicating online.

Frequently used words in word cloud feature.
Alerts

Alerts aren't meant to be a scary thing, but a tool that can be used to help initiate tough but important conversations. This page will consist of any activity that our software has detected as potentially concerning or in need of your extra attention. It may be content related to cyberbullying, mental health disorders, explicit content, drugs, illegal activity, violence, etc.

Potentially inappropriate content.
Location

Can you take an educated guess? Yup, it's your child's live GPS location. If you're monitoring multiple Aqua One's, your parent dashboard will show all of your kids on one map.

Downloaded Apps

With full access to the Google Play Store, it's obviously important that we keep you in the loop and show you every app they have downloaded. This way, if you see one you don't recognize or are concerned about you can have this conversation!

All app downloads on Aqua One.

What about parental controls?

The Aqua One doesn't enforce the traditional parental controls like setting screen time limitations, restricting them from downloading certain apps, or blocking them from visiting certain websites because that's not what we're about. We believe your active involvement as a parent is much more valuable and effective long-term.

If you aren't quite convinced or ready to say goodbye to parental controls, check out our blog to learn more about our firm belief in involvement over limitation.

Can I add multiple lines?

I'm so glad you asked!

Of course, you can.

If you're responsible for two or more of your Aqua One kids' phone plans, you'll be able to manage and monitor multiple lines from your parent dashboard all on your own device, creating your own little family plan!

Mental Health Check

One of Aqua One's most unique features is its Mental Health Check. Essentially what this feature does is have your child complete mandatory check-ins related to their mental state.

What does a Mental Health Check look like?

Mental Health Check included in Aqua One kids phone plan.

It pops up like a cell phone notification and they are prompted to complete two simple, interactive questions. This check will happen three times a day and is customized to your child's age. This way, they are answering questions using language and concepts they can understand.

These questions were created by clinical child psychologists to evaluate the emotional and environmental factors that may be affecting your child's mood and emotional wellness. It serves as a nice, consistent reminder to get in touch with their emotions and evaluate their current relationships.

Possible Mental Health Check Questions

Question: Who would you tell if you were being bullied?

Answer options: Parent, Teacher, Sibling, No One, or Other.

Question: I feel sad because of something someone said or did.

Answer options: Yes or No

Question: Sometimes I feel my heart racing, and I get shaky for no reason.

Answer options: Yes, Sometimes, or Nope.

Your Mental Health Check response access

As a parent, you will be able to view their Mental Health Check responses so that you always have access to valuable insight that can fuel conversations around mental health.

We will also send you psychology-backed recommendations and tips related to your child's responses to empower your proactive approach.

Mental health Check monitoring from your own phone

What this might look like...

If your child's Mental Health Check responses begin to show signs of anxiety, your parent dashboard will present you with at-home exercises you can do to help them manage their symptoms and cope with their anxious energy.

If their Mental Health Check responses show that they are struggling with friendships, your parent dashboard may provide you with talking points for conversations you could have with your child about personal relationships.

How can I leverage this insight?

Prioritizing your child's mental health can be a tricky avenue to navigate.

The purpose of the Mental Health Check is for your child to have an awareness of how they are feeling and what may be making them feel this way. By providing you access to their responses, you're able to use your parenting intuition to fuel important conversations around your child's mental health.

We never tell you how to handle these situations because as a parent, that is completely up to you. We just provide you with relevant resources to hopefully serve as a parenting tool to start important conversations.

For additional resources, you can always visit our Helpful Hotlines page. This page consists of a variety of free resources that can be utilized for mental health support, crisis support, and more. You never know what you or someone you know might be in need of help, so it can be extremely beneficial, if not life-saving, to have these hotlines and resources handy.

Do I have to pay extra for this?

Once again, the Mental Health Check feature and access to your child's responses are included in your child's Aqua One cell phone plan!

Now, I know that was a lot.

We can't help that our Aqua One kids cell phone plan has so much to offer! (And clearly surpasses all of the other cheap phone plans out there.)

For only $69 your child gets...

...an Android-powered Aqua One smartphone with unlimited data, unlimited talk, and unlimited text.

They can take photos, videos, text with friends, download apps, search the internet, use social media, and so much more.

As a parent, you get to be empowered to make informed parenting decisions knowing you have consistent monitoring access to all of their smartphone activity.

Not to mention, our one-of-kind mental health insight with psychology-backed recommendations.

Oh yeah, and if they break or lose it, you don't have to pay for a new one!

There's a lot that goes into choosing the best phone for your child. You want to find one with all of the advanced features, one with an affordable phone plan, one that will last them through the craziness that comes with being a kid, and one that meets your needs as a parent!

If they already have their own phone but you want to make the switch to Aqua One, they can even keep their same current phone number.

Our goal is to make your Aqua One experience convenient, seamless, empowering, and beneficial for both you and your child.

Happy parenting!
