Verizon is introducing Just Kids, a new wrinkle in its Mix and Match Unlimited Plans, making it simpler to get a line for a child's first phone. It becomes available on Thursday.
The wireless company's Smart Family phone plan, available for almost a year, already offers safety measures to make sure that a first phone doesn't become a nightmare waiting to happen for Mom and Dad. The plan allows parents to set content filters and block inappropriate websites. The premium version includes location tracking that alerts parents when their child leaves a pre-determined area that the parents create.
