To kajeet or not kajeet, that is the question....

Everywhere I go I see people on cell phones. Old people, young people. My kids, ages 5 and 2, both know how to dial and work my Blackberry. They know what it is, that it gets e-mail, that you can text message people and talk on it as a phone. I remember when I was younger, I had a friend who had a phone in her parents' car. It was a brick - this whole contraption that they had to carry around with them. Fast forward a few years to my first cell phone. It was that grey Motorola flip phone, you know the one that everyone had, with the plastic antenna? It was cool and cutting edge. Ack.

kajeet is a company that has come up with a great product - phones for teens and tweens that can be monitored by their parents. No contracts. No overage charges because everything is prepaid. They can talk. They can text. They can go on the internet and download content. Safely. It's a pretty cool product, I was able to try one out, and I definitely recommend it for parents who want to maybe "test" their child's responsibility level. Great bonus?

Here's a great video that the folks at kajeet put together about their product that explains it much more succinctly than I ever could.


  1. we skipped the kajeet and the fly phone and went straight to the real deal - basic family plan - unlimmited texting - and well monitored parental involvement. Daughter is 8 - got it last Christmas (7.5) it was our conclusion that we might as well have her learn to responsible with the real deal than re-parent later when her phone suddenly does all kinds of fancy things!
    She doesn't use it much, but it I do like that she has it for emergency etc.

  2. That looks pretty cool. I can't believe how close I am to needing that technology!
