A LITTLE ABOUT KAJEET:

In A Nutshell: We Believe Kids Are Smart

kajeet may be based in Bethesda, Maryland, but kids are the center of our universe. That’s why we made the only pay-as-you-go cell phone service that puts kids first.21yjVangoLL._SL500_AA260_

Our story began with three dads figuring out how technology, kids and parents work best (“kajeet” is an anagram of the first letters of the names of the company’s founders’ children). Thinking of our own kids, we designed a service to provide them with everything they need to safely explore the exciting new world of mobile tech.

We believe kids are smart. At kajeet our entire philosophy springs from this simple core idea. We want kids to be agile with technology. We want kids to have fun. We want them to be empowered and safe, and we want to help them respond with confidence to what’s happening in their world.

Not incidentally, we want their parents and guardians to be involved too. Because having a cell phone is not just fun, it’s a responsibility – a shared responsibility. (We’ve put “use it for good” in our logo for a reason.) So we’ve designed kajeet to incorporate a full suite of tools (we call it the kajeet Configurator) to help families customize and manage every aspect of their kajeet experience.

Finally, we believe that our customers are as much a part of the kajeet brand as everyone who works here. That’s why we encourage you to contact us and let us know what you think. We’re really busy, and we may not get to reply to every e-mail individually, but rest assured: We read them all and we’re listening.**

ABOUT PROACTIV SOLUTION

WHAT DOES THE IE MOMMY THINK?:

Personally, I think that the kajeet concept is ingenious. As a parent you have to realize that at certain age a cell phone is a must. Especially if you have a child that is active in after school sports or activities. Long gone are the days of pay phones. Have you tried to find one lately? Almost non-existent! I can not imagine my tween niece left with out a cell phone during her volleyball practice or guitar lessons. What if practice was cancelled or ended early? What if she hurt herself or left her guitar in the back of the car?

Of course…like most tweens and teens they want to text. Texting, phone calls, unlimited phone plans…is anyone seeing the dollar signs like I am?41j65tZ8RDL._SS400_

We had the opportunity to review the:

LG LX160 Features:**

  • Speakerphone
  • Voice-activated dialing
  • Bluetooth
  • Parental Controls
  • Includes $5 of starter airtime for new accounts

Key Features**

Flip-phone styling! Great pricing! What else? Take a look:

  • Bluetooth compatible Talk hands-free anywhere, anytime.
  • Big Color displays: 128×160 pixels internal, 96×64 external – 262,000 colors
  • Dedicated text messaging key: One click and you’re texting!
  • Voice dialing: Call up to 30 friends without even having to dial
  • Speakerphone Let everyone in on the call!
  • Voice Recorder: Capture that brillant thought before you lose it!
  • Huge Phone book: Store numbers for up to 500 of your closest friends.

I love the fact that you can create a customized phone plan specifically for your child. kajeet allows you to have the control that you see necessary yet the freedom a tween or teen craves. I have to congratulate kajeet....they saw a market that needed assistance and creativity and they stepped up to bat. In the IE Mommy’s opinion they definitely hit a home run!
