The Katana II offers Bluetooth connectivity for handsfree devices, a VGA camera, and a lustrously shiny pink color.
Kajeet was founded by three three dads figuring out how technology, kids and parents work best ("Kajeet" is an anagram of the first letters of the names of the company's founders' children). Kajeet's entire philosophy springs from a simple core idea: kids are smart. And they should be agile with technology, empowered and safe, and be able to respond with confidence to what's happening in their world.
Because having a cell phone is not just fun, it's a responsibility--a shared responsibility, Kajeet wants parents and guardians to be involved too. Thus, Kajeet is designed to incorporate a full suite of tools to help families customize and manage every aspect of their Kajeet experience. For more on Kajeet's pay-as-you-go charges and monthly voice and text plans, see the Kajeet Service section below.
Measuring just 0.6 inches thin, the Katana II sports a bright 2-inch internal LCD that offers a 240 x 320-pixel resolution and 262K colors, which also features IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology for wide-angle viewing with superior brightness and contrast. It's supplemented by an exterior TFT LCD (80 x 80 pixels, 65K colors), which enables quick viewing of the time, caller ID, and more.
This phone enables you to store up to 300 contact entries with 500 total phone numbers, 600 email and 300 Web addresses. It has a call history of 20 outgoing calls, 20 incoming calls, 20 missed calls, 60 recent calls. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear, and advanced voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family, and associates easy (up to 30 entries). Simply say the name or number of the person you want to call and the number is dialed automatically without using the keypad. It also offers PIM organization applications (calendar, to-do list, world clock, calculator, and stopwatch), 4 distinct vibrating alerts, 72-chord polyphonic ringtones, and a 2.5 mm stereo headset jack.
The VGA resolution digital camera can capture still at 640 x 480 pixels (sized for sending via email or uploading to the Internet), and it includes self timer, night mode, brightness, and white balance control features. Thanks to the built-in Bluetooth wireless connectivity (version 2.0), you can enjoy hands-free communication via optional headsets. Enjoy easy, hands free communication with a speakerphone that lets you hear callers loud and clear.
This phone has all the bases covered when it comes to messaging and Internet connectivity. Use the phone's built-in picture messaging capability to send text, graphics, and pictures to your friends. The phone features support for instant messaging applications, and there's a built-in WAP 2.0 Web browser for downloads and mobile Web browsing. T9 text entry, a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit--a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.
Other features include:
- Voice dialing for 30 entries lets you call a friend without even having to dial a number

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. The GPS Phone Locator service is $9.99 per month.
With Kajeet, the money in your Kajeet wallet--paid in either as pay-as-you-go or as part of a monthly plan--can be used for whatever you want: texting, talking, games, ringtones and more. Plus, at no extra cost you get voicemail, caller ID, and some of the lowest talking and texting rates around. You can choose pure pay-as-you-go flexibility, and refill your wallet either online or using Kajeet refill cards (available at select retailers). You might also want to consider the value of a Talk and Text Pak plan. Each is good for one month, and if your kid uses it up before that, you can just pick up a new Pak and start fresh.

*HOWEVER* the Kajeet phone service plan is WROUGHT with hidden charges. Here is a small sampling of what they will charge you: $.32 cents per day access fee (adding up to almost $10/per month) and this fee is always charged everyday, even if you don't use your phone all that day. Next, when you buy time, they charge you 5% EXTRA in fees, simply for adding time to your account! The 5% for adding time was NEVER mentioned before I purchased this phone and is only revealed when you actually set up your account and are trying to buy some time. These are just the fees that I know of SO FAR.
Also, I have experienced nothing but trouble and wasted time when trying to activate the phone online. After spending a half hour typing in various personal information and creating two separate logins and giving my credit card information, in the end, after all that time (and right when I thought I was done and ready to get my phone number and have my activation take place), I got an error message. Trying to go back and see what is wrong erases ALL of your information so that you essentially have to start over. After finally giving up on the online method, I called Kajeet customer service and was on the phone for another 20+ minutes, basically REPEATING all the info. I had just tried to complete twice online. After all of this, the agent says that the DEC id number of the phone is causing trouble and he has to create a "Trouble Ticket" for an engineer to look at the phone. He tells me that will take 24-48 hours to figure out. Note: This phone was purchased BRAND NEW from Amazon.com So, the bottom line is that if you do not mind paying lots of fees (and even hidden fees) to this company, as well as putting up with wasting an enormous amount of time trying to activate it, then this can be your phone! Buyer beware!
I am writing this in regards to the post about hidden fees.
The contract and reading material on Kajeet's website does mention the .32 a day charge IF you aren't signed up with a PAK. I am signed up with a PAK and have no extra fees (21.95 a month) My daughter LOVES her Rumor phone & I can monitor or shut the phone down whenever I see fit. Just wonderful.
I have had a few customer service issues. But, nothing major that wasn't worked out. I also wish Kajeet would get a better selection of phones. Kids want the latest & greatest....no touch screen. Come on Kajeet.
She was so upset when she couldn't find it one day, but the GPS took care of that! It was at her dance studio! Thanks kajeet!
