Every year when summer rolls around I’m thrilled at the fact that the school year constraints have been removed! And every year I forget how much hustle and bustle and shuttling of kids takes place during the summer. Keeping track of who is where and making sure that everyone is doing what they are supposed to requires a degree in logistics I think. Unfortunately I don’t have that.
Enter Kajeet – stage right! The name is an angram of the Daddy founders’ kids’ names. This awarding winning company was created to incorporate all of the items that the parents would want in a phone for their kids as well as one that would make parent’s lives easier! Oh yes, I need all the help I can get.
What I like best is what Kajeet phones DON’T have:
- No activation fee.
- No termination fee.
- No long-term contract.
- No hassles if you need to change your plan.
Oh, and did I mention that the plans start at only $4.99/month? Cha-ching!!!
My son has been bugging (actually it borders on hounding) to have a new phone and one with all the “stuff” he thinks he has to have which is a LOT more expensive than what I think he needs. Kajeet has a range of phones available from the popular Android™ smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S III 4G LTE or the LG Viper 4G LTE to more basic, “starter” phone like the Kyocera Domino. Anything over basic and I think it’s going to be on my son to ante up those funds! Personally, I’d just transfer the phone I already have over to Kajeet since that’s doable as well.
That also works for certain items such as games or ringtones. If the kids want them, with Kajeet, they can pay for them. Woohoo! Discussion over! I admit that in some areas I am kinda strict. So I want to know what’s going on and not letting my son have free rein with technology knowing that some of the stuff out there and online I don’t want him to have access to if possible. These phones can help me do that easily. Just a few of the features include:
- Setting time limits on phone use to prevent late night texting that interferes with kids getting a good night’s sleep.
- Block unwanted calls, but mom and dad get through.
- Manage what websites can be accessed
- Find your kid and/or the phone if either of them gets lost or stolen with GPS locating features available.
We’ve had many issues with a phone being misplaced and spent a ton of time looking for phones. The concept of being able to find the phone or my son really appeals to me. This summer we’ll be on the road a lot for both fun and family reasons. I want to allow the kids to have some freedom but I also want to keep them as safe as possible. I think Kajeet offers that flexibility for both kids and parents.
So check out Kajeet today! And here’s a little bonus for you: Phones can be purchased right from the website and from May 1 through June 17, there is a special discount of 20% off all phones (except the Samsung Galaxy S4) with promo code PROUD.
