After T-Mobile added their extremely cheap ($2 for the whole family) Family Allowance feature it was only a matter of time before other carriers jumped in. Verizon is next with a much more expensive offering of $4.99 per line for the ability to set limitations on voice minutes, messaging, schedules, content filters and whitelists/blacklists. Personally I think these limits features should be a free feature enticing parents to get their kids a cellphone in the first place.
They have also released a Chaperone 2.0 plan for $9.99 a month per line adds the ability to track the device and even track directly from VZ Navigator. Not sure if the Chaperone feature will work for tracking a BlackBerry but the VZ Navigator feature should. Just another way for parents to take the fun out of being a kid.
BTW that kid looks way to happy…
