Kajeet Adds New Plans With Data

Kajeet is a "smart phones for kids" Sprint MVNO that offers fine grained parental controls and a GPS phone (and child) finder. Kajeet has always emphasized messaging and voice rather than data. Their plans never even included any data, although add on data packages were available.

This week Kajeet made changes across their plan lineup that added data to all plans. The least expensive plans now include pay per use data and the $24.99 and $49.99 plans come with 100 MB and 1 GB of data respectively. There are also new $29.99 and $34.99 plans with included data.  The $24.99 and higher plans that include data have been re-branded as "Android Value Plans".

Data on the $4.99, $14.99 and $19.99 plans is pricey at $1/MB. I recommend either disabling data on those plans or adding one of Kajeet's more reasonably priced add-on data packages; $4.99/month for 50 MB, $14.99/month for 500 MB or $24.99/month for 1 GB. The last time I looked at Kajeet, the 500 MB package was $9.99/month so the $14.99 price is actually an increase.

Here's a table listing all of Kajeet's current plans.
Price/Month 1 Voice Minutes SMS MMS Data 2
$4.99 10 10¢ 25¢ $1/MB
$14.99 60 unlimited 25¢$1/MB
$19.99 150 unlimited unlimited $1/MB
$24.99 300 unlimited unlimited 100 MB 
$29.99 400 unlimited unlimited 250 MB
$34.99 500 unlimited unlimited 500 MB
$49.99 unlimited unlimited unlimited 1 GB
10% transaction fee added to all airtime and plan purchases
2 Additional data available: 50 MB/$4.99/mo, 500 MB/$14.99/mo, 1 GB/$24.99/mo

Although targeted at parents, anyone can use Kajeet. One reason you might want to consider them, even if you don't have children, is that BYOSD (Bring Your Own Sprint device) is supported. That means you can use most Sprint phones on Kajeet. The only Sprint phones you can't use on Kajeet are BlackBerrys, iPhones, Palm phones PTT phones and phones that have been blocked by Sprint for non-payment or because they were reported lost or stolen. Activation of Sprint phones is free and LTE 4G data is available at no extra cost on compatible devices.
