T-Mobile launches kidConnect plan
After this weeks announcement for Verizon Wireless Chaperone and Disney Mobile services, T-Mobile USA launched their kidConnect service plan. It allows parents more control over their kid's wireless bills. For $19.99 which are billed monthly, the plan offers:
Unlimited in-network calling
Unlimited nationwide weekend calling
50 nationwide whenever minutes per month
If the initial 50 minutes are depleted, the parent can add more minutes by using T-Mobile To Go refill cards; refill minutes do not expire and carry over to subsequent months if not used. Four outgoing text messages are counted as one minute of usage, while incoming messages are free. After the initial quota of 50 minutes is used up, the phone can place calls only in-network, on the weekends, or to 911.
