We offer a variety of ways to purchase Text Paks – including the option to purchase these on the handset itself. Because we assume that a child is the user of the handset, it is only possible to make one time (i.e., non-recurring) Text Pak purchases from a kajeet handset.
There are three options for one-time Text Pak purchases available on the handset:
1. 200 texts for $4.99
2. 1,000 texts for $9.99
3. Unlimited texts for $19.99.
This ability to fund these one-time Text Paks from the wallet allows you to provide an allowance in your son or daughter’s kajeet wallet and let them decide how they want to spend it – talking, texting, playing games, etc. (Note that your calls will always go through – even if they run out of their allowance – if you fund your Parent Wallet).
The handset purchase options are especially ideal if your son or daughter may not be purchasing a Pak every month. For example, if they know they will text more over a holiday when they are not with their friends or if they want the ability to spend their phone allowance on texts one month and games the next.
Are you or your child using the handset purchase option? Please let us know what other tools you would like to see on the handset.
