Very happy with my 11 year olds phone

by AnJa

We recently moved, so I let my 11 year old son get their phone. It is a great phone. If you set up auto payments, the daily fee comes out to 5.25 a month, 4.99 if you do it yourself, but miss a day, and you get the 35 cent charge per day.

The pre pay includes 10 talk minutes, it is 10 cents per minute over that; my son earns money, and for $5 a month he gets 250 text, so that is 120 minutes and up to 3,000 texts a year for $125.

The best feature is Kajeet's parental controls. I can lock out someone who texts too much to my son. I set up times where no texts go in or out (and no charges), and set up one number (me) that he can call at ANYTIME if he is at a sleep over.

It is perfect because pay phones are getting harder to find. Plus, he is learning to manage his money. If the theme was not so cutesie - I'd get one for my older son too. There are better value text plans available for heavier texters.

We bought this for my son when we moved. As he increased his texting, we increased the plan. The phones are pricey upfront, but, the deal for nearly 3 hours of talk time, and unlimited texting is $20/MONTH. It also has parental controls where we have blocked his texting, but were able to have in and out messages and calls to parent's cell phone. This was done instead of taking away the phone due to behavior, but still let us have contact with him so he was safe, or needed us. The rumor 2 is great with a 4 row key board, vs 3. Recommended!
