We have been searching for years for a good cell service for our kids.
We wanted them to have real, smart phones because we felt it was important for them to know, use and feel comfortable using them. They are the way of the future and we wanted them to be comfortable with them.
We also the phones to have full function, bit also a way to set parental controls.
We were at a stand still till I discovered Kajeet! Kajeet was formed by parents like us that had the same needs and they had everything we needed to keep our kids safe and happy!
Kajeet is the answer to all the cell phone needs of our daughters.
The phones that they offer are real smartphones. Not kiddies ones and they work on the Sprint network so if you have an inactive Sprint phone you can actually activate it with Kajeet. Plans start at just $4.99 a month which is very affordable! They are also running a special through June 17th where you can get a 25% off discount on all phones except the (Samsung Galaxy 4s) with promo code “25OFF”.
I was really excited to try out the service for my middle daughter the 11-year-old.
We were able to test it out both with her taking it to school and to a friends house. Both times I was so thankful she had her cell phone with her. I was running late to pick her up one day from school and I was able to call her ahead of time and let her know that her Dad was going to pick her up in a different spot and the other time she was at a friends house and she forgot her inhaler so she texted me and asked me to bring it to her.
After I received the new phone in the mail I called in to activate it.
That took about 5 minutes and I used that time to ask any questions I had. I learned that there are lots of ways I can keep my daughter safe with and while using her phone. My favorite way was that I could control who does and doesn’t call her and to block certain websites. There are also ways that you can set up the phone to not allow internet access during certain hours. I can see how the latter could be used in a lot of ways to motivate getting homework done etc.
Another thing I was really happy to see is that with Kajeet, you are not locked into a contract and that the monthly fee is very reasonable!
The service is also totally geared to how kids use phones, specifically with more texting and less talking. Pretty smart to me! There are also none of those annoying fees like activation or termination and they have a live chat that is always there to help!
This is absolutely my favorite feature that made me love Kajeet even more. All Kajeet phones are enabled with GPS location technology! It gives me huge comfort to know that I can locate my kids at anytime. That is priceless!
The parental controls were really easy to set up once your phone is activated.
You just have to log into your account and all the options are right there for you. It was quick and we were up and going in no time. Kajeet makes kids happy with truly smart phones and parents happy with both the GPS locating and the superior parental controls.
