Krew Mobile Starts Offering Its First Family Plan

krew-mobile-logo
Not too long ago, we shared the announcement of a new family-focused cellular provider that was getting ready for its customers in North America. Today, Krew Mobile launched its nationwide prepaid service as they start to offer some of the cheapest family cell phone plans in the region.

So what makes Krew Mobile's Family Plans so different from the offers of other prepaid services? As announced on their release, a family plan includes 3 lines-- that's 1 line for either parent which already comes with unlimited talk, text and 2GB of 4G LTE data; and 2 extra lines for kids available with nationwide talk and text. But the icing on the cake on Krew Mobile's Family Plan is that the lines come with parental control features, which enable the parent line to manage and control their kids' devices through their own phone. This allows them to provide access whenever they want.

Another thing that makes Krew Mobile's Family Plans different from other carriers is that on average, Family plans on other carriers cost over $100 per month. Meanwhile, Krew Mobile if offering an introductory price on their 3-Line Family Plan at only $19.95 per month for the first two months. After this period, the plan will change to $39.95 per month. The offer though, is only available for a limited time.

Otono founder and CEO Emir Aboulhosn shares that "With Krew we are delivering a contract-free family plan that fits any family budget, all on a nationwide LTE network with parental control features at no additional cost." Parent Tested Parent Approved founder and CEO Sharon Vinderine agrees that Krew Mobile allows parents to "teach children mobile responsibility" as parents are able to control their usage.

How to get Krew Mobile

Krew Mobile is a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) service. This means subscribers will need to have an unlocked phone with them. Since the kids' lines doesn't come with cellular data, it is ideal for younger kids who are just getting their first phones. It's really something suitable for basic communication without parents worrying about their privacy and security.

Once you've decided to give Krew Mobile a try, you may purchase a Krew Mobile Starter Kit inclusive of three 3-in-1 SIM cards. Activation is done online. Credit check or commitment is not required.

    2. Except for Sprint, the mobile operators don't allow their MVNOs to say which network they use. Based on their coverage map, Krew is a T-Mobile MVNO.

    3. Dennis: That seems like a pointless gag rule.

      But any carrier could get around it by saying something like: "We use one of the top carriers in the US that is not Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T".

      I doubt any sort of pointless gag rule has legalistic language within an MVNO contract saying "you are prohibited from saying that this service isn't on Verizon"

  4. only data on the one parent phone, but the other two phones have no data??? what if you want to track the kids? like using find-my-friends on iphones to track family members. no data, no tracking. krew is really lacking.

  5. It's a good price for 3 lines, one of which get 2GB data. But it's not a good fit for a 2-parent household, both of which would likely need data.

    1. This is probably a test trial. Mostly likely more plans will be forthcoming, I would think at least.

  6. Who is Christine Torralba? Why does this post read like an ad? $40 for 2gb data is no bargain. I don't know any children that don't want data.

    1. If I'm reading this correctly, that $40 is for three phone lines.

  7. This is actually a good plan for myself and my parents. I just don't know if they get T-Mobile where they live. Time to investigate.

  8. 3 phones with unlimited talk/text is a great deal even without any data. Should be a great plan for older people who don't use data or younger kids who you don't want to have mobile data.

  9. so it's designed for single-parent families...dang it!

  10. This sounds more like a plan for somebody with two senior citizen parents that don't want or know how to use data as I agree that most kids aren't going to be happy with no data or are children too young to care and don't need a phone exclamation point as they should be with a parent or Guardian !

  11. So I thought this might be a good plan for a data user and 2 non data users that aren't children but apparently you cannot disable the "parental controls" on lines 2 and 3. As it is lines 2 and 3 can only be "allowed" to talk and text from the primary line 1 for 1 hour blocks of time 30 times a month each phone. That kinda kills the deal for using this for a true 3 line family plan :-(
