Jez: Next Christmas I reckon I’ll avoid any technology gifts

Have your say

My son got an iPod 5 touch and iTunes vouchers for Christmas. I was able to redeem the vouchers which appeared on his iPod, showing he had £30 credit. But then the problems started.

When I tried to set him up with his own account, I discovered that at 11 he was too young. We overcame this by my wife opening an account on her iPhone which appeared as a mirror image on my son’s iPod. But my son now had access to all my wife’s contacts, which he began deleting.

Then every time he downloaded a game it appeared on my wife’s phone. I decided to do a full reset of the iPod and start from the beginning, but sadly my reset meant the gift vouchers were lost.

Next Christmas I will avoid any technology gifts!
