She is not very techno savvy, but I think wants to be able to play candy crush at all times or something.
Is anyone aware of anything currently available that is simple to use and that be bought up front for less than a zillion $$
Look at the prepaid offerings even if she has a plan, should be able to get a smart enough phine for under $200 unless you want and iThing, remember that there be plausible deniability in having a different operating system than your own.
My mum has an android phone which she can manage email on, fortunately I don't have an android phone so I can always say, no I can't help you with that, different operating system....
Start from $79, other carriers likely cheaper
