*2015-07-27 UPDATE**** POTENTIAL CHILD ABDUCTION NEAR US ****
Yesterday evening at 5pm Madyson Middleton of Santa Cruz was last seen riding her razor scooter. She's been missing near 15 hours now and everyone in the area is looking for her. This is not an advertisement for THIS product, but PLEASE... utilize technology we now have at our disposal to your advantage! AND KEEP what the watch is a secret even to those you know... many child abductions are by people we know & trust. How pointless would it be to have this if someone knew what it was and simply removed it! Hoping Maddy is found alive and well and returned to her mother safely. http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/police-year-girl-missing-santa-cruz-california-32711364
I'm not awarding a 5th star because for me that means a product couldn't possibly improve, and that's not the case here.
That being said, for about $100 I have no idea what anyone could whine about regarding this product. Sure, the ChEnglish accent that speaks is silly; sure, the directions are not written by someone who's first language is English; sure, the watch has an annoying blinking blue light; sure, your mileage on service and reliability will vary depending on what provider you pick for service... but outside of that this watch/phone is spectacular!
First of all, here's a link to the directions (I cut them up and PDF'd them, then uploaded them to my Google Drive to share): https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3TBzlidHq7dcE1BV05qdEFaOTA&authuser=0
Also you can get it from the manufacturer's website here: http://www.tbspc.com/download/TBS3202_b_IB1.0_User_Manual.pdf
Let's cover the "flaws" people are finding:
1. Service/delay/lack of response from watch when calling it: You stick a micro sim card in it. How good your service is GREATLY GREATLY GREATLY depends on the provider you pick. Here in the SF Bay area I am running on Pure TalkUSA (which is a MVNO [Mobile Virtual Network Operator]) that has purchased air time on AT&T's network. If you already know who probably has the best service in your area (judge by the major networks only) then consult this wikipedia list of which MVNO's operate on which networks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_mobile_virtual_network_operators I took a chance with Pure TalkUSA and figured that for a FREE Sim card and $5.00 a month with NO contract I couldn't go wrong trying them out. I could always switch. So far it's great - only caveat is that the watch doesn't respond when my daughter is in her actual school building. I don't care. Service for all the carriers where her school is is garbage. Once she's outside, it works great.
2. Manual is hard to understand: No it's not. Sure you've got to be a little interpretive, but not THAT much. Setting the watch up literally took me 10 minutes. If you can't figure it out and give up, sell me your watch for $30 instead of calling it a total watch. I've got a ton of friends who would love to have this for their kids. I'll gladly take it off your hands and get them set up.
3. "I can't hear what my kid is saying" - Sit down with your kid and teach them that speaking or shouting at the tiny microphone hole from 5mm away will result in, "BLAHADKBIDVDIDZZZZJZJGGZ AHZAHHHH" Teach them to hold it about 6 inches from their mouth and to speak in a normal voice. Practice this yourself with your own phone - I've spoken to a lot of people that don't realize they don't need to shout at their phone, and also that don't realize when they tilt their phone 4 inches downward it results in muffled speech. Sit in different parts of your house so you don't get confused hearing both devices (your phone & their watch) and practice call each other. Figure out what works best. Like anything else, practicing exactly how to USE it will yield better results. I did this with my daughter and have had zero issues (except when she's running around at recess and everyone outside is yelling/laughing/squealing; oh and this is so fun to listen in on!)
4. The blue light blinks: Yah this one bothers me too. Wish I could turn that stupid thing off. Someone in a comment on one of the reviews said once, "Just put it in 'school mode' to turn it off." I'm not sure they know what they're talking about because the manual doesn't reference anything about a "school mode." However the manual isn't the best and I've also found that you can turn audio prompts off but the manual doesn't address this either. So maybe it's a function the company forgot to write in English how to manipulate. Personally I'm considering just opening the watch and disabling the blue LED. Either that or I'm going to put some blue electrical tape over it (my daughter has the blue watch) OR I'll just ignore it. No one at her school has actually noticed it yet (she's in the 1st grade).
5. The band doesn't fit my kid's arm because it's too big: Come on, get a little creative! I drilled two new holes two spots further up the band with my drill (smaller hole than you think you need first!) and afterwards, setting it on the highest one I drilled it fits my 1st grade daughter's arm PERFECT!
6. "It's made of cheap plastic materials" - It's a KIDS WATCH! Of course it's plastic. It's also a $100 WATCH PHONE! You're insane if you think for $100 it should be anything different. Also I'd prefer it to be nothing more fancy looking as that would make it an attractive target for theft. The way it looks now, at first glance I think most people would assume it's some cheap K-mart 25¢ bubble machine prize watch. Fine by me! Also, should it get lost or damaged, I'm out $100 - BIG WHOOP...
7. My child can't hear me when I call: Turn the volume up! (Press the speed dial 2 button when a call is ongoing - do this at home on a test call. It should stay that way for future calls.)
Okay, I really can't address any other issues other people have with this because in my opinion they're just baseless complaints. You gotta use your brain just a smidge to get this up and running (and barely a smidge).
1. Turn up the volume ahead of time
2. Practice calling
3. Teach your kids what buttons are which (or at least the important ones. Tell them to LEAVE THE OFF BUTTON ALONE!! [Upper left button]
4. Make your kid practice with you
5. Set it to Mode 3 - trust me. This way your kid cannot make calls out to you. They can only enable the SOS emergency call feature which will begin the round-robin dialing of the 3 pre-programmed numbers until someone answers
6. Do your homework on which provider to get. Again, consult this list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_mobile_virtual_network_operators
7. Tell your kid to leave it alone and if anyone asks (friends or teachers) it's JUST A WATCH and that other stuff is just for fun decoration.
8. I've told my daughter she is not to remove it from her wrist whatsoever. If a teacher or another adults instructs her to do so, she is to politely inform them I've told her that they need to call ME first and explain just exactly why they think they need it removed. This keeps the thing from being played with, removed, lost, or the potential for a person with nefarious intentions at a minimum.
I love this watch. I may buy a couple more and keep then on hand so when my friends want them for their kid(s) I can have it already set up and simply say, "Here ya go" and charge them about $40 more than the online price. Worth it for me to have it set up and give them a quick run down.
I love listening in on my 1st grader at recess. Today we heard her say, "Mama mia Quesadilla" to someone at lunch. It was hilarious. When we picked her up from school we both said it to her in the car and man did her face light up. So cute! She loves her watch too.
This is the 100% best option out there - ESPECIALLY considering the surprising low cost. GET IT!

After my nightmare with the FiLIP 2 phone watch this one makes me happy..
I left a review on that watch so I will not go into it here. I want to thank Mamasi for taking the time to help by posting the codes for the watch and an easier way to understand them. I was trying set up the phone from the watch itself, I am sure you guys will know that you set this watch phone up from your actual cell phone. I especially want to thank Mysti for saying that she used AT&T otherwise I would not have know which phone provider to go too, I am sure they are not the only one. Here is the thing when I walked into AT&T and showed them the watch they immediately told me that they do not handle those or have never seen one. Armed with Misti's Post from Amazon I stood my ground and pulled it up and read to the store associate exactly what she said they did for her at her AT&T, Please read her review also. They tried it and everything worked fine. now has far as the contract, I was coming from the contract with them from FiLIP so they were able to shift it over at $15 a month if I did not already have a contract they would have charged me around $45 Mysti said she is paying $20 which is all you should be paying. The FiLIP phone could only diai 5 pre set numbers with this phone you get 3 speed dial numbers and then you can call anyone you want the normal way no limit. With the FiLIP phone you could send small text with this one you cannot not but that does not bother me it has so many other features. with the FiLIP I could not hear my 9 year old daughter but with this one I hear clearly. The lady that said the band is too big I do not know who she was trying to fit it too.
My daughter weighs 72 pounds, she is a bit tall for her age and yes the watch is a little bit loose it fits the way a bracelet would fit without spinning around but yet because of the many holes they give you there is much room to grow. I will give updates on how strong the watch is since we just got it. The instructions are difficult to follow but this watch is worth it once it is set up you will be able to talk to your child and have peace of mind. Do not let negative reviews detour you because this is the best one of its kind for children out there. I wish I knew about this one before I ordered a basic cell phone for my 11 year old son this I think would be so much better. Feel free to ask any questions.
