Does Village work on cell phones without data plans?

Using an old phone on wifi only

Yes! The phone needs access to data through either wifi or a cellular data plan. Starting off with a wifi only device is a great approach, because you will be nearby to monitor and help. It's fun for your kid because it feels like 'her phone.'

Here's what to do

  1. Charge the device if it's been a while
  2. Factory reset the device to remove all the old apps and pictures
  3. Setup a new Apple ID with a new icloud email address
  4. Set parental controls on the phone
  5. Download Village from the app store
  6. Create a Village account and start messaging!

Start messaging by adding family and friends for her/him to message with.
