Justin Burford



Escanaba, MI - More kids are asking for smartphones at younger ages and their parents are responding. While the appropriate age for children to own their first smartphone may vary by family, the median age for kids to own a smartphone has steadily decreased especially in America. Surveys show over 50% of US children ages 10 to 12 have a smartphone with a service plan. Good news for parents providing their kids with smartphones, Just Kids is the first plan from a major wireless provider created to help parents control their kid's smartphone use while giving the parents peace of mind.

The Just Kids plan includes Verizon Smart Family Premium, Verizon's comprehensive family controls. Smart Family Premium allows parents to limit how much time is spent online and set content filter all in one place -from their own smartphones. Smart Family Premium also allows parents to keep track of their kids location through the device's GPS. Smart Family Premium is a great value for parents and since it's included automatically with the Just Kids plan, parents don't have to worry about additionally charges and steps for these features. 

“At Verizon, we take pride in being a true partner to parents by providing them with products and services designed to meet their needs in an ever-evolving and often confusing technology landscape,” said Angie Klein, vice president of marketing at Verizon. “With Just Kids, we’re leading the way on growing up with tech, providing parents with plan options and features that give them the peace of mind they need for safe and responsible phone usage.”
