Helpful Hints Week #1: ContactManager
January 28, 2013
Want to block a bully from texting or calling your kid’s phone? Want to cut off your kid’s phone access during the day but still allow phone calls & texts from mom and dad in case of an emergency?
With Kajeet ContactManager, you can decide whether you want to allow calls or text/picture messages. You can also determine whose wallet pays for what for calls or messages from specific contacts (like you!).
ContactManager allows parents to set up three types of assignments for their kid’s phone contacts:
Blocked: Contacts marked as “blocked” cannot talk to or text your child.
Allowed: Contacts marked as “allowed” can talk to and text your child, but NOT during TimeManager time restrictions.
Always Allowed: Contacts marked as “always allowed” can talk to and text your child during TimeManager time restrictions.
All contact information is stored on a helpful chart:
Remember: you and your kid will be able to text, picture message, and call each other if your number is set up as an ‘Always Allowed’ contact, even if you disable texting & picture messaging or contact each other during a time restriction. This gives you peace of mind that you and your kid can always reach each other!
