One of the things that I really love about Sprint is their commitment to keeping kids safe online. Sprint WeGo is their latest effort in keeping kids safe. The Sprint WeGo Starter Phone for kids is an affordable cell phone option that features easy-to-use technology. Parental controls and extensive tracking functionality make this phone perfect for younger children.
Kids at younger and younger ages are now asking their parents for a mobile phone. They want to be able to call and text friends, play games and apps, surf the Internet and more. But that, of course, opens up many potential dangers. Who are they talking to? What are they looking at online? Will they break an expensive device? The list goes on. Sprint WeGo is an easy-to-use starter phone with numerous safety features that gives parents peace of mind while teaching kids responsibility – allowing them to call and text preselected individuals – all at just $9.99/month for service (phone costs $120). A portal available online and via a mobile application allows parents to locate their child on a map, control device features such as contacts and set up notifications (including SMS read receipt, panic alarm pulled, speed alert, wake alert and more).
What do you get with a Sprint WeGo Plan ($9.99/month)?

Additional Usage Charges: Voice Minutes $.40/minute and $.20/text message (sent or received)
You must have a parent device (primary line of service) on the same account to activate WeGo. Learn more about Sprint WeGo.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this! Would you be more willing to let your younger children have a cell phone with all of the usage limitations and parental controls that are available with WeGo?
