The LG Optimus is exclusively equipped with Kajeet Smart BlockerTM technology that allows you to determine what types of websites can be accessed and which should be blocked. Kajeet is the only wireless service provider to offer such an innovative tool, making it possible for parents to both provide their kids with powerful Android smartphones and — at the same time — limit the types of websites they are able to access. It features a 3.2" display with touch screen keypad, built-in MP3 player, a 3.2MP camera and video camcorder, and speakerphone and bluetooth capabilities. It also includes a microSD card slot for extra memory. Get one touch access to Android Market via the Android Operating System v2.3.

Easy Parental Controls

Kajeet parental controls are totally flexible. Manage whether your kid can use certain features like picture messaging, downloads for ringtones, wallpaper, and games, and mobile web by choosing which websites your kid can access. Decide who can talk or text with your kid by listing contacts to allow or not allow and determine who pays for the call/text if your kid's monthly plan balance has run out. Limit when your kid can use the phone through scheduled time blocks for certain times/days (such as during class or bedtime) and create exceptions for special events or holidays. With WalletManager give your kid a budget using the Kid Wallet which covers anything not part of your kid's plan (like more talk, text, picture messages, ringtones and games). The Parent Wallet ensures you always stay connected by covering calls/texts to or from you (in case your kid's plan runs out).

No Contracts. No Activation Fees. No Early Termination Fee.

Kajeet understands what it's like to have kids. One minute they want one thing, the next they want the opposite. That's why they don't require a contract. Buy it, use it, and if you want to cancel it, do so at any time, without any penalties.

GPS Phone Locator

We understand parents too. One of the reasons you get your kid a phone is for security. With this added feature, you can instantly find your kid's phone any time. You can also set up scheduled locates to check in on a regular basis. Set up landmarks (like "home" or "school") to tie to your locates.



Kajeet Prepaid Service

The Kajeet pre-paid service delivers a full range of customizable voice, text, and data services that enable kids to stay connected with family and friends. While kids will love the phones offered by Kajeet, parents will love the affordability of the Kajeet pre-paid service plans with no long-term contracts, no activation or termination fees, and no roaming or extra long distance fees.

The exclusive Kajeet Configurator offers easy-to-use tools for both kids and parents, with such budget and usage management features like WalletManager, TimeManager, ContactManager and FeatureManager that enable kids, tweens, teens and their families to tailor the service to meet their specific needs. Wireless network coverage for Kajeet is provided by Sprint on its CDMA-based Nationwide Sprint PCS Network (check out the nationwide coverage map).

Kajeet's GPS Phone Locator service helps both kids and parents find the kajeet phone. It uses satellite technology to help find your child's phone and gives subscribing families easy-to-use information regarding the location of their kajeet phone via Web-based maps. Parents can schedule automatic location checks at specific times of the day, so they know where their kid's kajeet phone is at any given time--whether the phone is in their child's backpack on the school bus or in their sports bag at soccer practice. Kids can also use the service to help find their phone.

I recently upgraded my daughter from a Kajeet Samsung 2700 to the LG Optimus and was totally disappointed to discover that turning on the phone's wifi circumvents Kajeet's Smart Blocker controls. Wifi hotspots are easy to find (can you say, "McDonald's"?) and there's no way to close or password protect the phone's wifi functions, so if wifi is enabled your child will have unlimited access to everything available on the Web. I've spoken to 3 or 4 Kajeet reps about it. Most gave me a party line, which seems to be something about only being able to "block or filter Web pages coming through our cell phone towers." That makes zero sense for a content-driven filter. I suspect it's more likely that Kajeet prefers that users only access data via their paid plans, rather than free wifi. At any rate, one CS rep took the time to look up Web filtering apps that ARE actually content-based and so work with 3G and wifi. Needless to say, I'm disappointed, because I've come to expect more from Kajeet and marketing their products as the "Safest and Most Affordable Cell Phones for Kids" isn't accurate. I think I may actually have been better off going with a service like Virgin Mobile ($35 gets you 300 minutes of talk, plus unlimited messaging data) and downloading Web filters and the other parental controls myself.

I'm a dad of a young daughter who wanted a phone (not just any phone, a smartphone of course) and didn't really want to put her on my family plan. I needed more control on her usage and was afraid of her losing it. Kajeet (they use the Sprint network) seemed pretty legit, so I gave them a try and have definitely been satisfied thus far. :)

I put the phone on an affordable monthly plan and love the free parental controls. The Optimus phone itself is pretty great and sturdy. I'm an iPhone user, and just playing around with the Android OS, I'm very tempted to switch over! I'd definitely suggest kajeet Optimus overall.

I just recently purchased this phone for my 15 year old niece. She wanted an iphone and this was really similar. She likes the Android OS that the phone operates on and now doesn't even want an iphone. She loves it! She sends texts, can access the internet, and facebook.

With kajeet, I only pay $14.99 for unlimited text and $24.99 for Data, which only makes her bill only $40 a month. That's waaay cheaper than my phone bill with AT&T and it would have been much cheaper than adding her to my family plan. I really like the kajeet service, because I can block calls and texts from certain people, GPS the phone when I want to know where she is AND I can determine what times she is able to use the phone but always allow calls from myself, her mom, and a few other emergency contacts.

Kajeet is great phone for kids. I even might get one myself, because the service plans are so cheap.
