Kajeet is a cell phone service made for kids, and the first US cell phone carrier to win the iParenting Media Award for 2009 Excellent Products in the Safety category.
“Kajeet makes communicating with a cell phone safe for “tweens” and teens because its phones feature a wide variety of free parental controls that can be set to block calls, picture messaging, and text messaging based on parental decisions. The Kajeet parental controls let parents determine when, how and how much the phones can be used by their children.”
I wish Kajeet was around when my two teens received their first cell phones. We gifted them with a communications lifeline (they actually had to pay the monthly service charge), with no limitations, no safety measures and no enforceable usage guidelines. It wasn’t “our fault”, there just weren’t the proper oversight controls available for the average parent consumer 3+ years ago.
Welcome Kajeet! I will consider them for my three elementary school age children when the time is right for them to truly need a phone. I welcome them because parents can finally provide their children a phone that:
1. Can be used to help teach responsibility.
2. Allows parents to set appropriate limits: number of calls, texting, contact list. (No more worries about texting all night, not
getting any sleep, or texting during school hours.)
3. Has a location detector with its GPS phone locator.
4. Gives our kids the fun and freedom they want, but with their safety as the first priority.
5. Does not require a long-term contract, or a new line item on the family budget. Plans are pay as you go, pay as you can afford.
Thank you Kajeet.
