Unlimited Text Messaging
March 6, 2009

The kajeet LG Rumor QWERTY keyboard phone has been extremely popular and it seems that it is expanding our customer base to include an even higher number of kids that love to text.
To respond to the needs of these more heavily texting teens (and their parents), we have launched a value package that includes unlimited texting combined with voice minutes. The offer on our website is $29.99 for unlimited text messaging and 300 talk minutes!
We are testing these unlimited value packages through the end of June to determine how parents and kids like them. If this offer is popular it (or some variation of it) may show up in our permanent rate plans. (Of course, if you purchase the offer you can remain on the plan even after the test period ends.)
Since this is a test offer, it shows up in the cart for new customers as they purchase the phone, however, it does not show up in the rate plan options for current kajeet customers. If you are a current kajeet customer that would like to take advantage of an unlimited value package please call kajeet customer care (1-866-452-5338) and they will be happy to help you!
While unlimited text may be a great value, many parents still want to limit texting so their kids get a good night sleep and are not distracted during certain times of the day. Note that kajeet parental controls still apply. If you would like to set a calendar block for your kid’s phone, log in to kajeet.com and go to “Configurator” and then “TimeManager”. You can also set an “Always Allowed” number so that certain numbers do get through during these calendar blocks.
Please let us know what you think of this type of unlimited value package option and whether you would like to see it become a permanent part of our rate plans.
