Lord knows when the Twofer hit their tween years they will want a cell phone, and frankly, I'm not completely opposed to it. The world can be big and scary and a little crazy, and as a responsible parent with a tendency to be a little neurotic, I'm thinking a cell phone offers some security.
Which is why I'm so happy to have already found Kajeet!
When I first read about Kajeet and explored the website I was really impressed with the level of parental control, and the flexibility of the program. Here's what I liked:
AffordableWith Kajeet no contract is needed and you can pay-as-you go for $.10 a minute.
But for less than $5 a month you can have 10 minutes of call/text time and if you go over, it's just $.10 a minute as opposed to $.32 a minute most "family plans" charge for overages. See the comparison:
Compare Kajeet's Basic Plan ($4.99/month) to most Family Plans
Parental ControlsParental controls mean that you can work with your tween/teen to manage when the phone is used (Time Manager), decide what numbers and texts to allow (Contact Manager), and even decide who pays for which phone calls. So calls to Grandma can come out of the parent wallet encouraging more calls to Grandma!
The GPS Phone Locator allows you to find the phone at any time. And all of these controls are easy to manage online.
GiveawayYou can enter to win a Samsung M300 Kajeet phone that will come with a $5.00 credit!
This phone does everything kids want it to do (text, photos, games, etc.) and the Kajeet service has everything you as a parent will love.
What's more, I have 2 Kajeet Gift Sets that will go to two runners up!
