Verizon has unveiled. “Just Kids,” that in the form of its new Kids plan, which will be available starting Thursday and includes unlimited texting and talking to 20 contacts the child’s parents have pre-approved. To get the plan, which also includes 5GB of 4G LTE data, it needs to be added to an existing “Go,” “Beyond,” or “Above” unlimited plan from Verizon.
Giving kids as 10 when parents allow them to have their first smartphone of their own is that now they can have plans of their own as well — all under mom and dad’s watchful eye.
Verizon vice president of marketing Angie Klein said,
The “Just Kids” plan also allows for 480p streaming, and parents will be able to easily set content controls to make sure their children don’t venture anywhere they’re not supposed to online. “With Just Kids,”.
“We’re leading the way on growing up with tech, providing parents with plan options and features that give them the peace of mind they need for safe and responsible phone usage.”
“Just Kids” line can be as low as $5 more per month when enrolled in Auto Pay, which doesn’t include taxes and fees. Meanwhile, Verizon has also teamed up with the Family Online Safety Institute to promote families establishing ground rules for themselves and their kids that promote more responsible use of technology.
The plan will allow for a function that effectively pauses the child’s internet connectivity, blocking their Wi-Fi and cellular data. Within Verizon’s “Smart Family” app is also where parents will go when they want to switch up the list of contacts the child is able to communicate with.
