Can a basic flip phone be used for the Just Kids plan line? Or does it have to be a smartphone? And which phones are compatible with a Just Kids line?

Yes you can.  Any of the LTE flip phones that is sold for Verizon.  You can no longer activate a phone which is CDMA/3G only

Thanks for your reply. I would have a smartphone with the Smart Family app. Would my child's verizon LTE flip phone still be able to pair with my device and do location tracking?

Thanks in advance.

As my 'kids' are all adults, I've never used these programs.  So I'll refer you to the FAQ. 
It looks as though location services may not be as accurate if your child does not have a companion app on a smart phone

Thank you for your interest in the Just Kids plan option, Mom6021. Here is a web page https://www.verizonwireless.com/plans/ with all of our current plans to review. We need to ensure that accurate information is provided to you about the device eligibility. The line on the Just Kids plan is required to have a smartphone. Please click on the following web page https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/just-kids-faqs/ and refer to number 1 under the “Just Kids and unlimited Mix and Match Plans” section for the details. Does this help?

No problem at all, Mom6021. The Smart Family service can be used to locate a device even when the child device does not have the ability to install the app. However, the Smart Family service is only available on select basic phones. What is the make and model of the basic phone that your child has?
