    My 5 year old likes how many buttons it has and how much easier it is to hold. He doesn't actually use it for anything but he likes to pretend. Lol. Says blackberry is cool

    Not at all surprised, kids love exploring

    5 year old me would have also loved a phone with plenty of buttons, to a kid a button represents another new thing to learn/discover.

    My friends 10month old for example loves taking all the remote controls in the house and absolutely hammering the buttons

    The Classic was a cool device, my favorite will be the Blackberry Bold which I always thought had the best forum factor of any Blackberry I owned.

    On the OS10 side, I will always have a soft spot for the z30 and the passport, two great devices.

    My daughter likes my Z3 more than any other device in our house, including Android and Apple tablets, because she loves messaging on BBM.

    No, because our family is all on BB10 for messaging. I'm the only one with a BBMe account (on Android), and I'm just using it for work.

    I gave my elementary age kid an old Z3. Cheaper than a junk Android burner. The kid can't get into trouble with social networks but can use BBM to communicate with contacts I set up.

    I'm sure I'm the only parent in the world who does a lot of things, but my wife and I love the fact that I can easily limit the communications circle to trusted partners using BBM. Kid is not allowed to use SMS or the phone at all, so the phone is really an old-fashioned 2-way pager!

    What about WiFi? Have you found a way to disable that?

    Based on that, I figured you surely would not want your child to be able to connect to the Internet via WiFi.

    Your 5-year-old has good judgement. I own a Classic myself.

    It's not a concern because kid knows not to add networks, and we've added the ones we're comfortable with. Kid has a data plan and can get the Internet anytime, but also has shortcuts to approved Web sites in a folder and knows not to enter any other URLs.

    We trust kid with phone, but it's also easier with fewer ways to get in trouble.

    Actually, that's a soft control against lots of Web browsing! We've preloaded shortcuts to approved Web sites.

    If kid was more "creative," I'd just install a DNS that blocked all but white listed sites, but thankfully, kid is respectful of online rules (for now.)
