Summary: This phone is perfect for my family needs. My son is 10 and isn't quite ready for a cell phone of his own, but I needed something to keep on hand for certain events where he would be without me. The best thing about this phone is the online controls. You can establish which numbers the phone can call and which numbers can call the phone! And yuo can monitor all phone calls made from the phone online.
Summary: I was not at a computer to begin the kajeet activation process for the LG so I called kajeet customer care. The person I spoke with was very friendly and patient with me. I was in my car with my kids at the time. The customer service person walked me through the process and everyone was very happy before we reached our destination and the phone was a hit. The LG phone works great and the parental controls are fantastic. It is the perfect phone for the younger ones.
Summary: I just signed on with Kajeet a couple of weeks ago. I have two tween children and I bought the Kajeet plan for them and myself. I am very happy with the plan and even happier to have gotten away from the two-year contract with my previous carrier. I love the phone options and the parental controls! Kajeet is the best for me and my family! Great customer service, too! No complaints so far!
BEWARE! Screen went blank immediately. Zero Customer Service!

Summary: The screen on this phone went blank almost right out of the box. Their online support is ridiculous - they gave me a customer service number and I was on hold for OVER one hour and still no one ever answered (Yes, I called during business hours). Waiting for instructions on how to get a refund of the money we loaded on the account.
Summary: phone works well - especially with the extra $ that comes with it. Kajeet offers a good service for kids, where parents get to have a lot of control over the times, and numbers kids can call/receive calls from.
Summary: I was looking for a good cell phone for my son just to take to his friend's house so he can call me when he wants to move on to another house and I can keep track of him. OUT OF THE BOX It was very easy to set up with the quick start guide. The battery was already charged, so I did not have to wait to set things up. The website was easy to access and log in. I got the phone number and passwords in no time. PHONE The phone looks like any other phone.
Summary: This an excellent alternative to a regular cell phone. The phone is lighter than a regular cell phone but the quality is still there. The phone is as easy as any regular cell phone to use with typical controls but the customer support from the company is great. Although geared towards kids I have used this and found little difference between it and a basic "regular" cell phone besides the cute start up graphics.
Summary: Bought this as a stopgap because I lost my regular phone. The monthly $4.99 deal from Kajeet is excellent if you don't use a cell much, though you cannot get the advertised rebate if you sign up for the cheapo plan. Extra minutes are 10 cents, which can add up. Coverage in DC area is OK, but noticably less than my other network. Even if buying for yourself, you have to keep transferring money from "parent" to "kid", which is a a bit annoying but easy to do online.
