As a mom of a 9 year old one of the things that I hear often is "I want my own cell phone" and while I am not ready for her to have her own phone (we tried that for when school started last year and realized she was not ready), when she is ready again I know I am going to need a phone that makes me feel safe that she has one and that is safe for her to use. I also need it for my own sanity because she rides the bus I want her to have one, for the drive that I am not with her. McKenzie and Logan both ride the bus together for now but in a few years they will both be on different buses in different schools and I am going to want them both to have the ability to get a hold of me if needed and that I have the ability to make sure they are safe.
Kajeet is a new cell phone provider that is made with parents and children in mind. Plans start at just $4.99 so you can keep your sanity and your kids safe while sticking on a budget. There are a few different phone options too, you can use a phone you already have or you can purchase one with them. There are also no activation fees, no contracts and no cancellation fees. So if you only want to use it during the school year you can, or if you only want it for when the kids are on a trip etc. then you can use it as you wish. If you have a Sprint phone then you can take your phone and use it with Kajeet! Then you do not have to purchase a phone and you can use one that you already own! You can check on the Kajeet website to see if the Sprint phone you have is eligible to use on the Kajeet network!
The phone plans give kids the ability to text, call and use data searching the internet at the same time as giving parents their sanity back with the geolocator. It is not just for kids, they have plans that work for teens too. So when the kids are in high school and you need them to have a phone you can!
Researching phones and phone plans has been tough and going back to McKenzie having a phone is not an easy decision for us, and frankly I am going to be putting it off as long as possible but I do not want to take away the technology that we can use to protect her and give her the option to call us when needed. I am glad that I found out about the Kajeet plans and service, and I have the ability to make sure that I am informed when making purchases when it comes time to for my kids cell phones.
