How to Repurpose an Old iPhone for a Child

If you've been an iPhone user for several years, I'm willing to bet you have an old iPhone laying around somewhere. It's never been clear if you should sell, smash, or gift it. Deron Bos, of Bos Organization, has just published a video walkthrough on how to repurpose that iPhone into the equivalent of an iPod touch for a kid. He'll help you erase it, turn on parental restrictions, and even set up an iMessage account that your child can use to text you.

The few bucks you spend on Deron's guide will save you hours of frustration and ensure your child's device is set up correctly. And let's be honest, your kid will be pretty pumped, too. Click here to download iPhone to iPod.
