We have been keeping our eyes open for mobile web sites that are appropriate for kids and have made available additional sites in the “Other Great Mobile Sites” category on the handset. As our mobileweb users know, the service supports four categories of sites:
- Category 1: Free sites
- Category 2: Other “kid appropriate” mobile sites
- Category 3: Social Networking and IM Sites
- Category 4: Open Internet
We have opened access to number of new sites in Category 2 – including sports, style, several magazines, Thesaurus, etc.
Enjoy! Please let us know if there are other mobile sites we should include in this category.

When we started kajeet a few years ago, we were grateful simply to have the opportunity to pursue our dreams of creating the very best mobile services for kids and their families. We owe many people a great debt for this opportunity. We deeply thank them all.
Now that kajeet has been a reality for just over 2 years, we have many other things to be thankful for: supportive investors, business partners who believe in us, the families who encourage us in our work and, most importantly, our customers.
We can never say it enough: thank you for your business and for placing your confidence in kajeet. You trust us to deliver critical communication services for your children, your families. With 2 children of my own, I know just how precious your trust in us is.
kajeet is a very young company. Many have experienced our exceptional product, rate plans and service. We’ve been recognized for what we’ve achieved. And I’m proud that, with your support, we’ve done so much so fast.
Still, we do make mistakes (and I can’t promise we’ll ever stop!). Providing a cell phone service – particularly one with unique parental controls and location services – is a notoriously complex business. When we do make mistakes, we’re grateful for those who point them out, and who are patient with us as we hustle to fix them.
Yes, we are grateful for every last bit of customer feedback, no matter how small, or how challenging to address. Our dialogue with our customers is precious. It encourages us to make our services better every day, which is the best way to make kajeet grow.
I’m personally grateful to work on a team that puts our customers first, and goes far above and beyond the call of duty to see that our customers are happy. Because your being a part of kajeet makes us happy. Your satisfaction – your happiness – means that our dream of providing the best and safest cell phone services for kids and families is coming true.
So, please continue the dialogue that helps us be better for you, for your family. And thank you for making the kajeet dream come true each day.
We at kajeet wish you and your family a joyous Holiday season, and a happy and healthy New Year.

Have you checked out kajeet’s new Sanyo 2700 devices on kajeet.com? These are great!!! (And they are on sale for $10 off during our launch period – through October 12!)
Here is what the reviewers are saying:
“The Sanyo SCP-2700 is slim and lightweight, with a great keyboard and an easy-to-use interface. It offers extensive messaging support, including support for corporate e-mail. It’s also very affordable.” CNET
PhoneScoop provides a good physical description of the phone in its review: “It is small, somewhat sleek, relatively attractive, and very light weight. In other words, it is easy to carry around. The sides and edges are rounded, making it comfortable to hold in your hand. The back plate covering the battery has some slight texture to it due to the checkered pattern, but the rest of the plastics are smooth. This phone was made to fit in your jeans pocket.”
The Sanyo 2700 is great for kids that love to text and it also comes with the kajeet service and free parental controls allowing you to configure limits, turn off texting at night, and more.
Comment here & let us know how you like the 2700!
