I'm going around in circles and hoping someone can help. We recenty moved to Tokyo and I need to get a mobile phone for my 11 yr old, just so she can contact me in an emergency, let me know she got to school ok etc. Our service provider is Docomo but we used an intermediary to set up the service, so can not get a 'childs phone' as we did not go direct to Docomo.
My daughter has an ipod touch, which obviously does not have a SIM so does this mean any kind of portable Wifi device would be useless?
The only option I see at the moment is to buy a phone. Two questions what is a good (cheap) alternative to an iPhone? I'm not familiar with Japanese makes/mobiles.
Stupid questions alert with any android phone purchased here could it be configured in English?
If I get a data only SIM could she still voicecall me via Whatsapp or another app?
