Verizon Implements “Just Kids” Plan

Verizon is marketing a new Just Kids plan as “the first smartphone plan designed for kids.” The plan permits parents to set important controls while still allowing children a competitive data and talk-and-text package. It gives children a monthly 5GB of data and permits parents to select up to 20 approved contacts for unlimited talk and text.

Worried that your child might hit the 5GB LTE limit?

This plan allows kids to keep using data at reduced speeds and without any additional charges or penalties.

The Just Kids package also comes with Verizon’s Smart Family premium suite of parental controls. Keep in mind that this add-on usually costs an extra $9.99 per month. Safety features of the Smart Family Premium suite include the ability for parents to set screen time limits on devices, track the location of their kids, and put content filters in place. With the Just Kids package, parents can rest assured that their child is using his or her phone plan responsibly and securely.
