Recently Sophia mentioned the worst cell phone bills where a child racked up $20,000 on an iPhone.

Well why not sell the dummy phones in stores?

Sure I can get them online, at places such as: http://www.dummyphones.com/
But the $5 fee is then hit with an $80-90 shipping charge:


So Koodo start getting these things out to parents.

And members of the community give it a "+1" and a star

To make it for loyal customers, it could be a Tab purchase only?

For a child it's an awesome toy, looks like the real thing!

I don't think there will ever be enough 'demand' to implement this.

Even kids younger than 2 know the difference these days... I've seen babies swipe phones before they could walk. Besides on a dummy phone you can't watch Youtube (which was the reason the child raked up that huge roaming fee in the first place). So they just grab Daddy's phone instead ;)

Oh I know, bought a 6 month year old a real android (without a sim) a while back. But they are a great distraction
