Texting Devices for Teens

September 2, 2009

LG RumorThe New York Times recently covered kajeet in an article providing tips for choosing cell phones for teens (“They’re Old Enough to Text. Now What?”).  This was a great profile of kajeet as the only prepaid phone with parental controls and GPS – allowing parents to deliver a safe phone for their kids with the controls they might need to manage its use.

The article profiled the LG Rumor handset at left – a great phone that is loved by kids!   kajeet has phones to fit every budget and parenting style including phones without cameras and basic flip phones that meet the needs of parents interested in an economic safety phone for their child.

Of all the plans profiled, we believe kajeet offers the best value for both tweens & teens.  The $4.99 plan is a basic safetly plan for first time phone users – it includes all service fees plus the first 10 minutes each month (every additional minute is only $.10/minute).  And our $19.99 unlimited texting + 150 minute plan has been tailor-made for kids that are becoming increasingly social and for their parents looking to manage their budget.

We are always interested in your feedback on our handsets and plans and your experiences with our service.  Please comment and let us know what you think.  Thanks!

    Hi, I’m 17 years old and have been owning a cell phone for about 2 years. I am so pleased with the $19.99 unlimited text plus 150 minutes. It totally fits my social habits. I’m not much of a talker but I can sure text alot. Had I known about this, I wouldn’t have been pouring $50/month into Cricket. I’m here to stay as a Kajeet Customer. Thanks for the great service and price. P.S. I recommended this to all of my friends and even my parents.

    We love Kajeet and found a new reason to love Kajeet — the GPS Phone Locator with satellite images! The GPS Phone Locator not only pinpointed where the lost phone was but showed it on a satellite image so that we were able to drive to the location and walk right up to where the phone was located!
